After discovering the community A Bra That Fits over at reddit, user irisflame realized that their sizing guide could be made into a calculator. The members of the community frequently complained that there was no calculator online that correctly estimated their bra size, probably because most use the +4 sizing method or something equally unreliable. New people were frequently coming into the forums and posting for help finding their size. The math involved in calculating the bra sizes is sometimes confusing for new people, tedious for others, and mistakes are easy to make. Many of the experts could quickly deduce a bra size based off the Five Measurements given, but this wasn't as feasible for the everyday browser.
This first iteration garnered a lot of attention, and also a lot of critique. Many suggestions came in from the community for ways to improve the calculator. By the next night (March 18), the second version of the calculator was released. This time, all five measurements were incorporated and the accuracy went up dramatically. A few other adjustments were made over the course of the next few days to further increase its accuracy. By March 24, the creator decided it was time to take a break.
Plans had been made to improve the overall design of the site and to include more information. It wasn't until late April, however, that work began on the new design. Finally, in the wee morning hours of May 1, the third version of the site went live. Although there were no changes made to the calculator's function, the site itself was vastly revamped with a more user-friendly design. There are still further plans to add more features to the calculator which can be found under the Updates section of the site.
Here are the steps the calculator takes to estimate your bra size.

Differences from the Original GuideThis calculator is not perfect and is meant to be used only as an estimation for your size. After working out a few kinks, there are now very few differences between this calculator and the guide. Below are the current differences that still exist.
