This is an Addition Elle 8445 42DD bra, here we will show how to take its measurements so you can add it to Bratabase.
- Lay the bra on a flat surface with the cups facing up.
- Accomodate the bra ends in a straight line (you may need to tilt the cups together).
- Measure from the last hook to the other end.
- Do not stretch.
In this case, the band length is 85cm. not 86.5cm where the band ends.
This is the measure the distance from tip to tip of underwire, place your tape on the center of the cup (where the underwire begins) and measure across the cup (from inner side to inner side).
The cup depth is the measure of the inner perimeter of the cup. This one is tricky.
You have to measure inside and around the cup along the same line you measured the cup's width, that shoud match the deepest line of the cup.
TIP: In this case the bra has a soft cup, so it is easier to measure in parts. Hold and measure, hold and measure, then add all together.
For this bra, the cup's depth is 25cm.
This is the measure of how far each inner side of the cups is, which is the wire's width, plus the cup separator.
In this case, the cups are 2.5cm separated (8.5 minus 6).
This meaures the length of the wire used for the cup.
Place your tape along the underwire, and measure from end to end.
In this case, the wire is 34.5cm long.
Measure only the actual underwire, even if it's smaller than the fabric covering it.
If your bra does not have underwires, please measure the perimeter of the cup in the same fasion even if it does not have a round shape, follow the square seams.
This strap is 2.5cm wide
This one has 3 hooks.

This bra's model is 8445. There is no model nam so we'll just use the code (if it's a number then it must be a code)
In case your bra also has a model name, please include both separated with a @. such as
|Cup||Band||Band Length||Cup Depth||Cup Width||Cup Separation||Wire Length||Strap Width||Hooks||Brand||Model|
Allow yourself to use decimals where needed.
It is ok, if your measurements are not 100% exact, but try to measure a close estimate.
