Confused about how to measure the cup width properly

Hi. I'm confused about how to properly measure the cup width. The guide says "This is an imaginary straight line from tip to tip of the cup or underwire For this measurement do not include the width of the wires."

I understand you have to measure from the tip to tip of the underwire for underwire bras. But in bras like the Natori Feathers, neasuring tip to tip of the underwire seenms very different from measuring the tip to tip of the cup?

Which line should I be measuring? Red or blue? (or some other way?)

I also looked at some examples from the Bratabase help.

  • Red line

  • I've always measured red (wire to wire).
