did you go to a reputable store to get measured?  nordstrom is great.  victoria’s secret is actually pretty good as wekk.  i usually go to a local bra place near me that i adore.

measuring at home isn’t always accurate. although 34 -30 is a huge range for band size.

This actually makes sense.  Cup size increases with band size.  There is such a thing as “sister sizes,” so 34B ~= 32C ~= 30D ~= 36A.  Bras can be surprisingly confusing.

It is very common for women to wear incorrectly sized bras. Generally, at least in the US, women are more likely to wear bras that have cups too small and bands too big. I wore 36C/D for years before figuring out that I’m actually a 32F. They are completely different sizes and fit completely differently. So wear the bras for a day. If you find yourself spilling out of the side, top or bottom of your bra – you need a bigger cup size. The band will stretch, so if it’s a bit tight, at first, that will likely improve with wear.
