I finally clicked on one of the bra threads and was shocked to hear that there's only ever been one true A-cup on here.

I have always thought of myself as a 36A. But, I tried the measuring thing and got 35" X 38".

Could I really be a 34C??

Well, I tried one on at Asda, and it fit much better than I would have ever imagined. It was a little tighter than I'd like, but the cups were perfect. A 36C wasn't as smooth a fit. I didn't have time to try on other styles. But, when I get the chance, I am going to find a bra that is suitable in a 36C.

Say I wanted to invest in some 28E (!!!) bras, where should I be shopping? I would usually go for pretty cheap high-street ones, being a student and all, but I guess that that wouldn't cut the mustard, brawise?

Aha, have just seen that OP tried an Asda one. Will have a go with Primark/H&M/New Look and see what happens.

And my apologies for hijacking your thread, Katy flowers

you won't find 28s in cheap high street places. bravissimo or debenhams have best in store range or check out brastop, leia, mycurvesandme and even amazon

thecraicdealer have you been fitted at a 34a? ?if so experience on here suggests that you are probably a 30dd or there about

Another sad boobie owner here, mainly a b cup.

I have flabby bits that sit between my armpit and strap, is it extra forgotton boob shock

"Bonus Boob" has a better ring to it InTheRedCorner.

If I'm a DD cup I will pee my pants in excitement.

grin I need to buy a tape measure asap!

red corner it is boob and belongs in the cup

I never knew! I've always been an A, only started wearing a B after my 3rd was born, just guessed really.

What would 27 round ribs and 33 round boobs be?

Keztrel Thu 18-Jul-13 14:55:41

please blush

start at 28dd

Keztrel Thu 18-Jul-13 14:59:54

Thanks Statistically. So does the measurement round your ribs correspond to the size, ie if you measure 30 round the ribs you need a 30 bra?

it does indeed. Most people actually round down if an odd number but 26s don't really exist

I have just measured myself with the bra guru guidelines and I come up as a 30D!!! I am currently wearing 32B. D cup me?! I can't actually believe it will fit! I have almost no bust. Can't wait to try a bra out though!
BtW my measuring made me nearly 30" under and 34 over boobs, does 30D sound right?
I like the idea of the balcony bra, I too don't have much on top.

bigbuttons Thu 18-Jul-13 15:02:59

new look do 30" I will be off to check it out!

sounds right big buttons. a d on a 30 isn't huge-cup size is relative to back size

Keztrel Thu 18-Jul-13 15:05:06

I have lots of 32C and D bras - they're v comfy but not doing a lot for me support-wise! Always thought I was a 32 until my 5'10" massive boobed friend was measured as a 32F by Bravissimo and looked at me like this hmm when I told her I was a 32 as well.

InTheRedCorner Thu 18-Jul-13 15:06:07

I just bought a tape measure, bit rude to whip them out in he school playground so will have to wait until I get home grin

tinierclanger Thu 18-Jul-13 15:06:31

Non believers please do try the new size. I looked completely different and so much better in a 28c instead of 34a. Even naked I felt like my boobs suddenly looked better and curvier!

bigbuttons Thu 18-Jul-13 15:07:22

Thanks for link. It seems I have 'shallow' breasts! Wow what alot I'm learning today!

HaPPy8 Thu 18-Jul-13 15:16:22

I have the worlds smallest boobs. Measure 29inches under, 33inches over. What should i wear? I need all the help i can get as very empty looking boobs.

try the following sizes as you are in between. ..28d, 28dd, 30d and 30c

stopusingmynicknames Thu 18-Jul-13 15:23:31

marking my place to try later, after I've picked the kids up and when they've all buggered off outside to play

InTheRedCorner Thu 18-Jul-13 16:56:15

Ok I'm measuring 29 underneath and 33 across the bust...
