Wow just wrote a whole post and it didn’t work and I lost the post and I have to start again. Damn you new weddingbee.
Anyway… I had this post wrote in a funny way and it was witty. But none of you will get to see how awesome I was this morning cause I don’t feel like writing it all again.. sorry!
Long story short, this mama has new, smaller breasts after being done breastfeeding my 2 kiddos. After 3 years in maternity and sports gear, it was time to buy new bras because my pre-pregnancy bras are way too big now.
I measured myself at home, and it was 34AA or 34A (depressing, I know). Then in the store, they had me at 34B. And in another store, I was a 30D. I ended up buying some 34B and 30D and feel equally comfortable in both sizes.
I am happy that I have comfortable and sexy bras, happy to feel like a woman again and not just a milk bar. But man this sizing thing in confusing!

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.
