Could someone explain to me how the numbering system works on the Recommendations Page? I had been getting numbers, like in the high .40's, and I always assumed they were the equivalent of a percentage, with 1.00 being the same as 100%. But I recently remeasured (again), then tried a new bra (which fits but is not without issues) from that list. So now that bra has triggered a whole slew of new recommendations, of which several are well above 1.00. How can you have a number higher than 1.00?
I'm obviously missing something...

  • Following.. I've actually been curious about this too...

  • At the bottom of the recommendations page, you will find two links, raw details & calculation details. If you click on these links, it might explain it better for you. I'm sure that @Jj can provide some insight on this as well.
