Bra sizing

I'm a 32E bra size but I can hardly ever find this size in stores or online, I was just wondering if anyone could suggest what the next best bra size would be? I used to wear 34D for years before I actually got measured and they told me I was a 32E..

I understand places do, do 32E but a lot of the time I find bras I love and they dont have my size so was just wondering if it is possible to adjust and get another size??

You can adjust...take in the band at the back ...but your shape is unlikely to be as good. It can be a matter of timing, wait till sales are on and then ordering from the new ranges should work. Also phone bravissimo as they can put your name on a returns list as most people order way too many to ensure they get a size and style that suits their shape. mind you I am not the best to ask, justvgrateful when something fits.

Sister size would be 34DD but of course would have less support in the band

Im surprised you cant find a 32E. Have you ever typed 32E into ebay search bar? I dont think its an unusual size

Otherwise debenhams and marks and spencer both do loads of bras in this size, also bravissimo

I have done this, I think when I was wearing the same size as you and using a 34DD after a shop offered to do the same for me but I didn't like any of its styles and bought elsewhere. I found it best to take an inch out from under each arm and anything that was between the cups. The fit was good and it was supportive but the shape wasn't great.

Now I buy my correct size from I love the Curvy Kate Ritzy and Tease bras best.
