I got “measured” for my bra size at Victoria’s Secret over the weekend and the lady said I was between a B and a C (side note: I was shocked since I didn’t think i was that big being asian and all :)) Anyway,
I tried on the B and thought some of my top side boob was sort of coming out, the C didn’t make my boobs look as “up”
Which one do you think I should go with? How are bras suppose to fit?

@bzybee15: Victoria’s Secret are notoriously bad bra fitters. Whilst this site is aimed at larger cup sizes (which actually aren’t as big as you think, I was sized as a 38B in VS but I’m really a 34F) they give really good advice on how a bra SHOULD fit: http://www.bravissimo.com/perfectfit/wearing-the-wrong-bra-size/
- The band around the back should sit level all the way around (underneath the shoulder-blades). If it does, it’s too big.
- The straps should only take about 10% of the weight of your breasts, the vast majority should be supported by the band under the bust.
- If it digs in over the cup then you need to go up a cup size.
- The material between the cups should sit flat on your chest, if it doesn’t then you need to up a cup size.
It doesn’t sound like the bra is the right size, basically.

I would have a fitting by a professional, not a clerk.

Thanks ladies, I’m normally not so OCD about stuff like this, but I wanted to get it right since I’m going to have the bra sewn into the dress.
