Sizing Guide:

See images for additional sizing instructions.

The size guide is for guidance only. If your size differs significantly from your usual size, please consult our Sizing Tip to double-check. If you are uncertain or your size is not on the size guide, contact us so we can advise at steaks@steakswear.com.

Sizing Tip #1: How do I measure correctly when sizing upper-body protection?

Always measure standing upright with your feet slightly apart, without clothes, and ensure the measuring tape is positioned correctly and horizontally/parallel to the floor. Ask a friend to help or check the position in a mirror. Ensure to measure accurately before ordering to prevent exchanges for which you will be responsible.

When sizing the AAVA Sports Bra, it is best to base the size on your under-breast / under-pecs measurement, as 80% of support should come from the band sitting in this area. But do not overlook the other measurements. Due to the bra closure, the under-breast/pecs range is also the only adjustable measurement.

We recommend selecting a size based on a “2 out of 3” rule. If one measurement is slightly off, it does not matter as long as the other two are in the specified range.

Example: If your bust is size EU36 (S, US4, UK8), your waist size EU38 (S-M, US6, UK10), but your under-breast /pecs measurement is on the larger side of EU38 (S-M, US6, UK10) or even at the beginning of the EU40 (M-L, US8, UK12) range, you can choose size EU38 (S-M, US6, UK10).

Do not rely on other sports bra sizes when sizing AAVA. It is built differently than sports bras due to the impact protection. Your AAVA size might even differ from the size you had in our STEAKS Contact Wear products.
