Bullet bras were originally available in cup sizes B to D. Goodness knows what happened if you were bigger than a D cup (note: you would have just gone up a band size or 3, hardly ideal). When we launched our Maitresse Bullet Bra in 2003 we used traditional grading methods and really pushed them as far as we could.
Over the last decade bra fitting and grading has evolved considerably so we decided to take our bullet bras back to the drawing board. The result is an amazing fit whether you're wearing a C cup or H (as Miss Deadly Red is in the images here).
If you're an E or F then you should choose your normal bra size. For G and H cups please read the sizing notes below.
Larger cup sizes generally have more stretch to the band due to the bigger wire spring. As our bullet bras are not underwired, and only have a small piece of elastic they don't stretch as much as modern day bras.
In the images here Miss Deadly Red wears a 70H which she says she felt very comfortable in. When wearing a high street brand she normally wears a 60J and I personally felt that a 65I might have been a slightly better band fit - if we made one. Miss Deadly Red does not wear bullet bra pads in the images.
If you are a G or H cup I would consider going up a band size and down a cup size. If you would like to check before ordering please drop Hannah a line (at 75F she fits into our Curve Bullet Bra) with your underbust measurement and the size and brands you normally wear - firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm a 36G in high street bras so I ordered the 38F. It's a perfect fit and the most comfortable bra I've ever worn! I think I will get the falsies for when I want it to be extra pointy. I'll definitely be trying the Harlow Curve next. Highly recommended!

I bought this for my wife, purchased a 38DD which was a little too small. We exchanged for a 40DD which fits perfect. No problems with the exchange either. She loves the fit and the look.

Ordered a 40DD, my high street size is a 38DD, My other WKD bras are a D cup and the fit and shape on me isn't great so am really pleased with the bigger cup and band size! Would love to see bigger cup and band in your other bras then I could replace my other bras from you!
