Sizes by UPPER bust circumference in inches/cm: (30, 32.5, 35.25, 37.75) [40.25, 42.75, 45.25, 47.75] {50.25, 52.75, 55.25, 57.75} “ / (76.5, 83, 89, 95.5) [102, 108.5, 115, 121.5] {127.5, 134, 140.5, 147} cm

To choose your size, measure the circumference at your upper bust (your chest at your underarms) and select the closest exact size. If you are between sizes, I recommend sizing down.
