Please wise mumsnetters

Im measuring 34 across the back and 36 across boobs
Currently wearing a 34 d
Is this correct?

Getit Wed 10-Feb-16 14:38:55

34 B
DOH !!!!!

Are you measuring bending over like in this guide?

Getit Wed 10-Feb-16 14:58:39

Will double check that tonight thanks
Just off to work

Getit Thu 11-Feb-16 21:54:43

Have measured myself as instructed
34 across back
37 over boob bent over

Getit Thu 11-Feb-16 22:23:06

I wear a size 10 usually (if that helps?)
Awaits bra experts grin

That would suggest a 34C - seems broad for a size 10 though
How does the 34D fit on you, is the band firm and how are the cups?

Hi I'm quite boney on top if that makes sense?
It's a 34 b I've been wearing
Cups don't always seem to cover and I get side overspill, but I wear padded bras usually
I get redness from the straps where they dig in and sometimes they ride up at the back


hollinhurst84 Thu 11-Feb-16 22:52:50

Riding up at the back suggests band is too big, and overspill - do you scoop? Sounds like cup too small as well
I would be tempted to try a 34C and a 32D and possibly a 34D

Getit Thu 11-Feb-16 22:57:25

I do scoop and that's usually when my cup doesn't seem to cover

Getit Thu 11-Feb-16 22:59:46

A d cup really?
I don't have much

hollinhurst84 Thu 11-Feb-16 23:02:13

Well if you drop down a back size then 32C is the same volume as a 34B. But because you're having overspill you need to go up a cup hence the 32D
So it's only one "cup volume" up from what you're wearing

Thanks for the advice I will order some bras to try smile
I'm still waiting for my dd to give me her measurements as I need help with her sizing too
