Unfortunately, wearing bra cannot prevent the inevitable.
That doesn't mean I don't run into the odd bra manufacturer who runs small or large, or the odd style that doesn't work with my breasts. In fact, many bra manufacturers make bras specifically for fuller on bottom or wide-set breasts, etc. You might just need to understand that they might call them Balconette or Demi or gusseted, etc.
It doesn't mean the calculator doesn't work. It is just the standard. Many women would do well in understanding the "sister sizes" in bras and what different styles actually do for a breast.
It also might help to talk to a tailor who could suggest how to add a gusset or take in a band or move over a strap to suit your particular body. Shouldn't I wear 38G or 38H? Then why does the band ride up my back the the front sag down in all the styles I've tried in this size?
With 40F the sagging is worse, and I have yet to find a 36H sold in stores. This method does not work for me. I am generally measured a C depending on the make and when I wear these size bras they are comfortable and secure and support my breasts fully. This measuring chart, however, is telling me I am a size 36DD. This is so obviously wrong. Never add 4 or any number of inches to the underbust measurement. This is a relic from the beginnings of bramaking, when the fabrics were less elastic.
That is also why some of you get negative numbers. It clearly doesn't make any sense. And why would I wear an underband that is 4 inches too large? Just take the underbust measurement and go from there. I measure around 31 inches and wear a 30 or 32 underband depending on the brand and elasticity of the band.
There are bra sizing charts out there that compare international sizing systems and sizing differences between brands, which will give you an idea which brands to go for. Also know that the cup size changes with the band size. For example, a 34C has about the same cup volume as a 36B, or a 32D. So if you're trying on a bra and it doesn't fit, you need to adjust the cup size when trying another band. Also, don't be afraid of larger letters. Women don't come in only 4 sizes.
A D-cup usually isn't all that big as I said, a 32D is about the same as a 38A , and most women are used to wearing band sizes that are way too large for them and hence used to low letters. So if the fit of your 36C cups seems only slightly off but the band rides up your back like nothing good, remember that a 32E has about the same cup size even if it sounds huge to you and a 32F will probably fit even better.
It is really uncomfortable. This system dones't work! So I don't add 4" but I feel confused. Does that mean that I am a 26 FF? I don't understand what size I have to wear. Moreover, the smaller band size is 28 and not So what is my real size? This measuring system only works for the ones who do. And every woman has one breast sitting slightly lower than the other.
It isn't that this system isn't working. I measured myself and got a negative number in the difference of my bust and band size which is incorrect. I right now wear a 34B to a 32C depending on the bra. It's not like my breast cave into my body how could I have gotten a negative number.
If I go with the 40 inches, most of the bands fit, though one 42 I found is comfy too, but I have yet to fill up the cups on both sides of any B cup I have found before washing the cotton ones and I measure 46 inches at the fullest part of my chest, and sometimes it comes out 47 inches.
I have seen 44 B come up and even 44 C on one measuring advice site. My breasts look like a B and an almost B. The few 40 A cups I found online and ordered do not fit properly, but that may be complicated by my height and high shoulders. I go for tighter bands to hold the bra down, generally.
I feel like a B minus overall and maybe a A on one side. I have a couple of 38 C's I can wear with an extender and they make life easy unless the straps fall off.
The odd thing is that minimizer styles are more likely to fit than other ones but I hate the industrial strength look of them. I do not sag. I don't even have a crease under my smaller side and I am over I think trial and error is the only way, but with almost no wide band small cup sizes around it is hard to accomplish.
I think a fat transfer style boob job is my answer. I am definitely not a size AA. I am currently in a 34C and my nipples slip. What math could I be doing wrong? My under-breast measurement is 35". Odd number so add 5". OK, so they're telling me my band size is 40? Across the thickest part of my low volume breasts is I'm going to round up out of shame and say I have an "A" cup.
Here's where it starts to get funny. My breasts fit into 34A cups. The band is too tight, so I tried a 36A. The band fit, but the cups were too big. That's because when you go up a band size, cup letter remaining the same, you go up a cup size.
I think I need a 36A-. This site is telling me I need a 40A. So adding cup sizes: Then another quirk of the standard measuring system: I'm 5'10", pounds with broad shoulders.
So when I wear a 34A with or without an extender, my breasts are 'placed' too far together so it looks unnatural. If you look at me in 2D, I have about 3" on each side before the outside of the cup wire starts. A 34 band is meant for someone maybe 5'4" with a narrow, feminine frame. Because I'm taller, I'm also wider; my ribs are still in proportion to my body; you don't grow taller without also growing wider -- "in proportion," if that makes any sense.
Victoria Secrets is useless for fitting, they just shove you in a room with boxes of bras. I am a large woman and can't seem to find a bra that will lift, separate and fit me well at all. Should I try a 54 D? Or a 54 DD? Any suggestions are appreciated. The band size of the bra states 40, but the measurement with tape measured This is with the band in natural position and not stretched out.
I then checked several of my other bras, and the difference was about the same. Can anyone explain this? I also have one playtex bra that the band actually measured the tag size.
The others were more expensive brands. I suppose this is because bras are mass-manufactured and are therefore conglomerated into a few mainstream sizes. Take my measurements for example: According to the archaic sizing methods used, I am a 36A. These numbers are way off, because I cannot fit into that size without crushing my breasts.
Adding 5 inches to round up to an even number is stupid. What happens when you round down a number? So which one is it? A 36A simply doesn't cover my breasts, whereas a 34C is closer but a bit tight in the band. So I'm told to try a 36B because it's the same as a 34C in the cup? The 36B ends up smallish in the cup but the band is nice. The funny thing is that the bras that actually fit me are nowhere near my supposed calculated bra size. To those who leave comments like "you just did it wrong", get a life.
Most of us know how to add and subtract. The system for measuring is wrong, plain and simple. You can't take a middle ground because there isn't one. And you can't say to just adjust the straps accordingly because the straps have nothing to do with the cup. The next issue is shape. Bra cups are not friendly towards breasts that face out a bit or aren't sitting super close together.
When I wear a 36C, there's a gap in the inner part of the bra but the outer cup cuts into breast tissue. When I bend down and squish the whole breast in, they fill the whole bra nicely. Until I move a bit, then back to square one, and the pain from the cups cutting in is nasty. I think bras need to be tried on individually, but there has to be more variety for different breast and body types.
Also, living in a dream world here, but wouldn't it be nice to have those odd numbers available? Just go by band measurement and cup measurement to get a better idea of which size to start with and go from there. Yes, it's based on an antiquated system -- a system which remains in place.
All the women whining about it not working, read up on it properly. And the woman who got a boob job; if the test says you're still and A-cup then you more than likely messed up your measurements. The number of people who don't add on the inches is the reason so many women are wearing the wrong bra size. I've worked in lingerie in the top stores for over three years. Her actual band size is 36 or 38, measured under the breasts, not above under the underarms.
If she wears a 36 band, she puts the rear clasp on the loosest setting. If it's a 38, she puts it in the middle.
Then we measure around the bust. If we stick to the 36 band size, she comes out to a 36dd because her bust is 5" bigger than her band. If we go with the 38 band, she is a 38d because she is 4" above the band size.
The most comfortable bra for her is the playtex at WalMart. It is a simple, underwire molded cup bra with moderate to excellent support. Try it, you'll like it. A 34A would be climbing up my back, pinching me in all the wrong places, and not even begin to contain these girls. Why would that even make sense? It is antiquated information based on old methods of bra construction. Your under-breast measurement is your band size. Every inch of difference between that and the fullest part of your bust is a cup size.
People just need to remember there are sister sizes. Someone talked about that about a quarter of the way through all these posts. There are some great sites for finding abnormal bra sizes. I'm a 32DD and I'm about two months pregnant. Figure I have some growing yet to do. If you look around, you can find some really good sites that sell bras for many sizes.
I know there are a few located out of Europe. Give them a look. Thanks for this article. I will be able to figure my size out as I get farther along in my pregnancy.
I get fitted with my bras by trying them on and seeing the results. Currently I am wearing a 38L bra, which I fall out of and it gives me no support whatsoever. Every time I go by a measuring guide, I measure to be a 40GG, which is rubbish because I tried this on in the shops and it looked like I only had nipple tassels on. I need help and quick. When you're telling people to add and subtract nonexistent inches from their bodies, then it's absolutely possible for some women to arrive at a negative number.
Secondly, here's how I know that this ridiculous method does not work. I just had breast augmentation surgery, which increased my breast size dramatically. But according to this useless method, my current post-op measurements would place me in an A-sized bra. Does that make much sense? How is it possible to inflate my chest with implants, and then expect them to fit into the same cup size I was wearing before surgery?
My A bras did fit me perfectly before. Today, those cups won't even hold half of my boob. And guess who measured my breasts and informed me of my "new" bust size?
Some employee at Victoria's Secret. You should've seen her face when I tried on that A for her. This method just doesn't work. Your underbust measurement is the measurement under your bust in inches, rounded to the nearest even number.
That's why so many women are wearing a too big back size and too small cup size - they keep adding ". I have tried a 32A bra but it is simply too small, what should I do?
I measure around a 33 or 34 inch chest. I measure right around 42 inches on my breasts. I do not know what size of bra to wear. When I get a 36 D, it makes me look like my breasts are way drooped down, and if I wear anything smaller than a D, my breasts are falling out.
The bigger I go in the number, it just pulls my breasts down. What is my bra size? Under my breasts I measure I'm currently wearing a 36D which I know is too small. Yes, that size exists. No, I didn't measure myself incorrectly. If you get a negative number, don't add 5 to your underbust measurement. I got measured at Victoria's Secret and the lady told me I measured exactly a 34D which, coincidentally is what I have been wearing for years now.
If I use this formula, I get a 29 lower band plus the 5, which takes me to a 34 and a 36 bust measurement. If I follow this formula, I'd be a 34B - impossible. I spill out of my D cups. My "upper" band is 35 inches. Around my nipples is 37 inches. I just lost a lot of weight, which is why I need to recalculate my bra size, so snarky remarks about fat don't apply. I got straight A grades when I took math. I cannot figure out which size bra cup will fit me.
These instructions are giving me a Minus cup not true and I don't know if the size should be 34, 35, 37, or I got between B and C and that's what I think I have.
When i measured, i got a -1 and that's not right because my band is 34 so when you add the 4" it becomes a 38 but my bust is only I'm currently wearing a 36B but it barely covers my nipples! My mom's been telling me to try out a 34C or 36C so this really does not work! LenaAnn94 Post 99 I've been wearing a 34C. Because B's have never fit very well before.
I have been so confused up until your explanation. I have been wearing a 34B but the cup size has recently become uncomfortable. I went to VS and got measured as 32D but they had none of that size to try on. I personally thought the 32C cup fit pretty well though.
I then used this system to measure myself and got 32A as my size. But with your explanation, I now understand why the 32C was fairly comfortable and why the attendant at VS suggested 32D. She was actually doing to good job of sizing even though it seemed crazy at the time! When buying, you should consider that the intended support of the bra is 80 percent dependent on the underbust brace and not on the wearer of the bra, as is often mistakenly suspected. If the brace of your bra fits too loosely and slides upwards, the bust load is transferred to the bra straps.
As a result, the bra straps intersect causing tension and pain in the back and neck area. Do you have a big bust? Then you should pay attention to the following aspects when choosing the right bra:.
With breasts of different sizes, the shape of the breasts is often different, the nipples sit in different positions or point in different directions and the volume can vary from side to side. In the case of pointed breasts, however, the course between the upper part of the breast and the nipple is conspicuous and can appear almost triangular in profile. To a certain extent, bras with molded shells act as a template and shape maker shapewear.
They do not allow the nipples to shine through the upholstery and clothing, creating a balanced appearance. To increase the symmetry in case of small side differences, the beam lengths can simply be adjusted. For larger differences in volume, on the other hand, cushions and pillows are suitable.
But even then it is important to choose the right bra size first. Breast malformations, operations, and hereditary predisposition can lead to a pronounced difference between breast sizes.
However, removable cushions or additional cushions can be used to achieve a more symmetrical shape. Shell bra cups or variable padded push-up bras can be used as the basis for this. Removing removable pads and cushions on the side of the larger breast is ideal and easy. On the side of the smaller breast, on the other hand, they are inserted so that support is provided in the underbust area.
On the one hand, this has a relieving effect. On the other hand, the breast tissue is pushed upwards by this measure, fills the basket and promotes a symmetrical appearance.
Brassieres with straps running over the neck are suitable for asymmetries as well as for pointed breasts. The breasts are automatically raised slightly, which makes the upper part of the breast more voluminous. In addition, different sizes can be easily compensated for by the aforementioned aids. Inserts that are used attract less attention or are easier to laminate. However, it is also important for these triangle or neckholder bras to focus on designs with padded cups.
There are many advantages that come with regularly wearing properly-fitted bras. Aside from hiding the nipples and enhancing the aesthetics of your upper body, wearing a supportive and right-fitting bra might help delay the sagging of the breasts. It also reduces the pain and discomfort you feel when your breasts are bouncing, especially if they are larger than average.
Bras also provide insulation, reduces friction, and regulate sweating in the bust area. Nowadays, a lot of women choose not to wear a bra at home and in public. Women are hit by puberty at different ages. However, there are early bloomers that develop breasts as early as 8 years old and late bloomers that do so at 15 years of age.
Therefore, your daughter should start wearing bras when you notice that her chest is starting to grow since she may already begin to feel discomfort and pain at that point. Moreover, your child might be more self-conscious about her chest, and she may unknowingly alter her posture to hide the protrusion of her bust.
There is no rule of thumb at what age you should start wearing a bra. The age at which a girl needs or wants a bra is a very individual thing.

So if you want to wear pretty, feminine underwear, now may be the right time for your first bra.

But so far, there has yet to be any definitive evidence which proves that sleeping in your bra is dangerous to your health.
So, at present, the decision to sleep in a bra is totally a matter of personal preference and comfort. However, there is no scientific evidence that proves that wearing a bra is the cause of poor milk production.

They may be pressing against a milk duct which may consequently lead to a plugged duct, or worse, an infection of the breast mastitis [Source: California Pacific Medical Center ].
