Just measured my DD, underbust 32inches and over is 36/37!!

So I'm guessing around the 32 D/DD??

She's flipping 11!

Try boob or bust it's fairly straightforward and is pretty accurate.

HellsBellsAndBucketsOfBlood Sat 08-Apr-17 22:05:32

Yes, it agrees with me, she's 11 poor cow!

Just out of interest, do her boobs look big?

Cos I'm clearly pretty flat chested (not bee sting flat, but a small handful, can easily wear no bra, type flat.) and that site suggests I start at a 28F.

Honestly that's crazy talk!!

For her age, yes i suppose so.

32 under bust seems quite big for an 11 year old, did you pull the tape measure as tight as it would go?
I wear a 32g and am a size 12 in clothes.

Just done my 11 yo and she measures a 28E on this site shock
She wears a 32C which admittedly doesn't fit very well. Where does one get 28E bras from??

HellsBellsAndBucketsOfBlood Sat 08-Apr-17 23:43:58

Yep, she's a 10/12 adult clothes, and 5'3".

Brastop, bravissimo, eBay and Amazon are usually a good place to start

Try Freya for 28E

DianaT1969 Sun 09-Apr-17 05:50:19

Yes, just checked the Freya website and they do over 50 bras in 28E.
You could try Cleo by Panache, Lepel and Pour Moi too.

Sorry, forgot the link

It's upsetting to hear you call your daughter "poor cow".

HellsBellsAndBucketsOfBlood Sun 09-Apr-17 10:08:52

Oh behave!!! Really??!!!

Morello That site's usually accurate but I'm a cup size bigger (same back size) and am definitely not able to go without a bra! And a bra with some serious support (wide straps, wires et), too. It might be worth measuring again or going to Bravissimo to get properly fitted.

Just had a go with the calculator because I've been feeling my bras might not be right, it reckons I'm a 32 E or F - I'm wearing a 34D. Eek! I'm inclined to believe it. Obviously need to go try a few on but I've never been bigger than 'standard sizes'. Where should I go looking for nice, smooth, t shirt style ones? Probably with some thin padding and an underwire?
