I can't find the thread now but thank you to all the people on the bra size thread who are correcting us women who have been wearing the wrong size bra. I was dubious, but after wearing a 36c do years and measuring 31inches round the ribcage, I have just taken delivery of my 32DD bra which fits like a glove..
I expected ott to be really right and uncomfortable, but I can hardly tell its there it is so comfy.

I will need to go bra shopping now for some more!

So if I am now wearing a 32dd bra, would I need to buy a 32dd body?

I have a dress which I really need to wear a body for but don't know if this is the right way to go...

yay and yes, 32DD body should fit. of course, different brands fit a bit differently, sometimes you'd need to go down or up a size, but the same size is a good starting point.

It's definitely the place to start - bodies can be tricky if you are pear shaped or hourglass though. I had to go up a back size to get a basque to fit but because there are so many clips it gets away with it! be prepared to try a few sizes.

Found a good one online, so maybe I won't risk it until I can try one on then. Very much classic pear with big bum
