… according to that link I’m a 28DD, and if I were to tell a salesperson at VS, or any other lingerie shop that, they’d laugh in my face. I’m almost completely flat chested and hardly fill A cups. That cannot possibly be correct.

@NellieBelly37:  Still don’t believe it, and I’d be hard pressed to find a 28DD bra anywhere. According to other sites (where you convert the true measurement of the band size and calculate the difference from that), I’m between an AA and an A, which makes far more sense, but even so, it’s hard to find 32/34AA bras anywhere too. Either way I’m doomed to have ill-fitting bras and absolutely no cleavage until I get preggers- if I get lucky.

@NellieBelly37:  It isn’t that bad,  I have it and it’s normal to me, but yeah to wear bras it is hard but it’s nice.  I am big breasted.    I wear singlets most days.

28″ band

33″ over the breast

I represent them tiny titties. LOL I’m having way too much fun with this.

@NellieBelly37:  Yeah – I always have to time my foundational garments for Nordstrom’s sale, otherwise it’s painful :

Nordstrom Rack has more palatable prices, but it’s hit or miss and you have to go into the store, since the online inventory is very limited.

I’m in the exact same boat. I had always worn 36C/34D and got properly fitting last year into a 32/F. It makes such a huge difference. But I have just sucked up that bras cost more now. I did find a bunch at a JCPenny discount store once and I was amazed how many 32Fs they had!

I went to a store in New York that had been featured on an Oprah show about wearing the proper bra and was fitted as a 34E.  About a year later (don’t think I changed in size at all) went to a shop in my hometown asking for that size and the lady said “that is not your size” and brought me 32G’s.  I was shocked, but they fit perfectly.  I do feel like Oprah lied to me though… lol. Cup sizes aren’t actually as big as everyone seems to think they are. 

The only places I could buy that size in store where I lived were pretty expensive, so I have been buying them online fom Bravissimo for the last several years.

I’m currently a 36H.

I’m losing weight (I went from a 38 to 36 and now that is getting too loose) but unfortunately I lose nothing of my boobs, so my next bra size will be 34I and after that, 32J…

I went through the same thing recently, and ended up with a 32F. The sizes due very a little depending on the brand. My bigger problem is I can’t seem to find this size outside of expensive brands, I will say, Chantelle bras are amazing, but steep in price. Victoria’s secret bras don’t work for me, one size will be too small and the next one up too big.  Basically you need to go to a store with salespeople that really understand good fit to help you out.
