How to know your bra size?

Asked by: Mary 344 views Fashion & Accessories

My friend is a B cup and when she went to Victorias Secret to get sized, they said she’s a D… I’m like that’s a joke. My mom said Belk sizes for you, but would you get a more accurate size if you measure WITHOUT a bra or a bra that is normal? Because all mine are push up and I only have 1 that isn’t.. and it’s a bit big on me.

    Measure without a bra or the bra you are wearing will alter the actual size

    It’s possible to have small breasts and be a D cup.Do you know what a D represents? It means the bust is 4 inches bigger than the underbust. So if you have a 30" underbust and 34" bust, you’re a 30D. That means each breast "sticks out" 2 inches so that’s the depth of a D cup. 2 inches is NOT a lot! Also, not all D cups are the same. The letter is a relative size so a bigger band means bigger cup (a 36D is actually 5 cup sizes bigger than a 26D!)She should go somewhere else to get measured, VS is terrible at fitting. They perpetuate the myth that D cups are big when it’s actually not. They normally try to fit women to their stock rather than being honest and telling them they don’t stock their size. Places like La Senza do the same thing. At the time I got a fitting, I’m supposed to be a 30E and they put me in a 34B! If they put E cups in B cups, can you imagine all the misconceptions that they spread?To get a better idea of your bra size, use this guide: http://www.thinandcurvy.com/2010/10/how-…And don’t get freaked out if you get an "odd" size. Go to the Bra Band Project to compare. All the women on that site are measured correctly.http://www.brabandproject.com/

    i guess it depends. i always thought i was a 32B but yesterday when i went to buy a bra, the salesgirl gave me size 30D since the D is the same for B. so you have to see if this may have been the case.
