I seem to have the opposite problem. Last time I was brave enough to get measured they decided that I was probably 36AA, but they didn't sell that size. Luckily 34A actually seems to fit fairly well. :roll:

apparently lots of shops recommend a bigger band size than you truly need anyway. like they'll say someone's a 34b when a 32c would be far more suitable. i read a blog once where a lady went to loads of different shops on the same day and the differences in what sizes they suggested was really suprising.
dunno about you but reading threads like this makes me kinda grateful to have small boobies.

If a 34 A fits, you probably shouldn't try to wear something 2 inches larger.

I'd like to have small enough boobs that I could get away without wearing a bra, but also quite like my current ones... just not in clothes.

I'm a 36C, but I wore pretty much nothing but flattening sports bras until my mid-20s because I hated having men stare at them.

I hate having boobs, & I despise bras. They bind & pinch, ride up, & are never supportive enough. Used to wear a 34b, now it's a 38d. To me, mine seem like a couple of mega sized watermelons that do nothing but get in my way. If I had plenty of money, I'd have them removed. I'd rather deal with being flat chested...at least you can add padding if needed. When you have too much, you're stuck.

I hate bra shopping. Luckily with nursing, I am able to find bras that are in bigger sizes. I guess the company figures womens boobs grows many sizes they they must make big nursing bras so stores sell them. I wear a 36 DD/E or 34 E. I'd have to look at my new bras again and see.


But I used to struggle finding them in my size but now with nursing, I buy nursing bras and lot of them are in big sizes.

I would recommend buying nursing bras even though you aren't nursing but you'd sure have an easier time finding them in your size.

I seem to have the opposite problem. Im a 34 A but my boobs the diameter is too wide but not deep enough for typical bras plus I have long shoulders so often I need to adjust the strap the longest they can go, sometimes the bra strap is not long enough. I have problems with bra straps not staying on my shoulders. I finally found a bra that fits after years of searching. But it has an underwire which is not the most comfortable which causes discomfort.

Who was that member here who used to be a professional bra fitter? She gave some good advice!

Like someone above, my boobs have a large diameter but a smallish profile, so I tend to have a little bit of spare room in the cup. I'm a 12C-12D at the moment. 12D in some shops as their 12C cups actually look too small according to discerning my eye. There are no strict standards for bra sizes I've found. One shop's 12D might look and fit exactly the same as another shop's 12C.

Anyway, the relatively cheap Hestia brand of bra's fit me nicely, even if they're a bit plain and basic. I liked their plunge bras but they don't sell them anymore :(

It's really important that you do have the straps nice and tight too (but not enough to dig in to your shoulders) as the length of the straps determines the amount of lift (wearing a bra and still having your chest look saggy defeats the purpose of wearing a bra IMO)

Well what was really rude was she left before I could convince her to have my babies. That just totally disrupted my Fen-Chi
