Bra intervention first bra

It's all changed from when I was a teen and now I just wear what's comfortable so where do I start with DD?

She's been wearing crop tops but wants something a bit more substantial, doesn't really want to get measured so I'm looking to buy some on line to try at home.

I'm guessing she's a b cup but she measure 26" under and 30" across so according to M&S that makes her an AA which doesnt seem right.

Any ideas? I'm using M&S as a ref as they have nice plain non padded bras which is what she wants.

that would make her 26D

Buy a few in different sizes and send back the ones that don't fit.

I can't believe she's a 26D and I've never seen that size in any of the stores I shop - any suggestions?

I'm happy to order a few but need a vague idea of ball park confused online suggestions are everything from 26-32 band size an AA - D cup. That's a lot of combos

it's not an easy size to find - figleaves has a few

sorry I posted 28D - 26 is like hen's teeth, some here: or she might want to try 28C as well

The sister sizes of 26D are 28C and 30B. You won't find many 26/28 backs

I got my DD 28C plain t-shirt bras in John Lewis (own brand). DD had a fitting and in our branch they had a good selection of first bras. But 28 was their smallest back size.
