How should I measure for Gorteks? I used mm, and measured myself as 90 mm around and 106 bust which puts me at a 90C or 95 A as I read some bands are small. My US size is 34 J, and UK 34GG

  • That's a great question. Since I changed sizes, I recently bought 2 Gorteks bras (if I ever get them) from Poland that were on a deep discount. I basically chose a style that was super popular (this one that had bloggers review it, and lots of bratabase reviews so I could determine [what I think would be] my size.
    Then I ordered another one - also deeply discounted - in same size. SO WE WILL SEE if they are sized consistently between styles!! LOL.

    I've read Gorteks can be inconsistent is band sizes?? But IDK.

    Also, by the time they will arrive, I might have changed sizes again, lol. But they were pretty cheap. so...could always list them, I suppose.

    I'm only aware of one store that sells them in the U.S.?? Her Underthings, but there's probably more.
    But unfortunately, she only sell her Clearance bras online so there's no way to try on and return them.

    Other Eden UK (ships to the U.S.) sells Gorteks, and I know you can return/exchange them from there.

    So I'm just saying, I don't really know how to order from them, but it's also a brand I'm investigating!!

    One of the reviews said Gorteks is an underrated brand, so I want to try it!

  • Honestly it isn't a good idea to measure yourself for different brands. The best thing to do (that i have found works for most and in my opinion) is to use your UK sizing standard and I would convert that directly and then I would research the database to see if I could find any information on that particular brand. If I could not find any information, I would order 2 cup sizes larger. It seems to work out fairly well in most cases (for polish brands, i.e Comexim. Ewa Michalak is the exception). I find trying to follow any of their sizing charts or recommendations just ends up with you wearing a similar sized bra to if you went to Victorias Secret and got measured there. All the EU/Polish sizing charts have the Plus 4 method built into it. So they immediately add 4 inches/10 cm to your band size. If you wearing a 34GG in UK sizes you may find you are sized out of Gorteks. You would want to try the 75J. If you order a size 90 band, that would be the same as ordering a size 40 band in the US or UK.
