There seems to be a newish, popular bra size measuring technique from the Reddit, but it's at odds with the old method used by dept stores and Victoria's Secret. Which way is best?

I am writing an instruction guide for measuring yourself for a bra. I had always thought the tried and true method that comes up first
in a Google search for measuring was the gospel. A friend was outraged that I would think that was remotely accurate in 2014 and pointed me to the A Bra That Fits subreddit
, saying that the old method is outdated and everyone in the know is using this "new" measuring technique.
I checked on MeFi and all references to the subreddit are positive, but I am wondering if this new method is making the old one obsolete, if the "popular opinion" is superseding the old method still recommended on many websites. I want my guide to be as accurate as possible.
Any advice/experience with the old method/Reddit method would be so appreciated.
