Hi! I've never posted before but was so impressed when reading through the threads about correct bra sizes that I thought perhaps you would be able to help me too. Always hated my boobs as they so small. Flat-chested and one larger than the other Was A cup before children and now been wearing AA and wondering if I need AAA as my boobs seem too small for all bras
I read the link to the "Bra guru's better bra campaign" blog that you posted and have got the following measurements:
Underneath: 31 inches (or possibly 32) - it was a bit tricky for me as only got a rubbish paper tape measure with inches so kept re-checking with the proper one which is cm only. (Bit as always thought I was a 34 or even 36. Perhaps lost weight recently? Or toned up as exercising more... Actually thought I had put on a couple of kilos).
Bust: 35.5 or 36. Again I have two measurements as have quite protruding nipples so tried to squash them down a bit to get the true boob measurement - not that easy when not much to work with!!!!
For the underneath measurement, i am pretty thin and don't have any padding round my ribs.
Are there any places you recommend particular to buy bras from? Have tried max cleavage online and we also have M&S here (I live overseas).
Huge thank you in advance!!! Am very excited to see what you will tell me!!!
I've only just realised that I'm probably in totally the wrong sized bras after reading the bra intervention threads! I've been in a 34c for years thinking it was right but reading bra sizes for different clothing sizes on here I realise that's probably not the case.
