Whether you’re a beauty novice or a confirmed fashionista, this topic is for consulting Mumsnetters on all things style-related. Plus, check out our Swears By page for the inside track on the next Mumsnet must-have.
If you're happy with what you have and it fits, don't change it. Sometimes the tape measure isn't always right and it's better to go by fit. Inspired by this thread, I just measured myself and got a 26E. That size is going to be nigh on impossible to find, so I shall just ignore it!
Twentythirdinline I bet if you scoop in your A/B bras you'll have major overspill? How far can you pull them away from your body?
28C is a pain to find but there are loads of 28Ds around (M&S, Debenahms, Bravissimo, Therapy etc). You may be surprised, I know people who measure at a 28D but actually need a bigger cup due to their style. You will feel much more supported in a 28 band.
TheFillyjonk Try a 28F and then perhaps adjust it using a Rixie Clip. M&S 28 bands in their limited range measure about 25/26 so could be worth a try and are easy to pick up on eBay.
Yes but as long as the shops persist in adding inches (which they do to ensure that they can squeeze you into their limited size range) then they don't need to stock the sizes that properly fitted women actually need! The more women that wear the correct size and pressure the big stores to stock proper sizes ranges the more chance we have of seeing change.
