Shouldn't a 38 DD bra measure 38 ins on the band

Am trying on my wedding bra. And it's tight on the slickest hooks. I measure 36 on the band.

The DD cups are a bit puckered on the top. I measure 41 around the fullest bit in said bra!

Just temeasured the band and I'm getting 34 now

The bra band is elasticated so it will measure shorter than the size on the label. It's hard to gauge with a tape measure whether or not a bra is too tight, as we all have some 'give' in our skin too.

The bra you have sounds as if you are finding it too tight, but a different one in the same size may be perfect!
