|10:45 am - Bra size help?|
Hmm...I'm a little confused. Historically, whenever I went to buy bras, I just use the trial and error method of whichever one(s) fit the best and are comfortable. Today I figured well why don't I actually do a measurement just to see if I've been wearing the right size (generally I've found the ones that I tend to choose are around sizes 36B-38B, although lately they've been kind of tight). Now I'm super confused. According to this and this sites' measuring method, I'd be a 38A-40A O____o
Now I'm no expert in this field, but I was always under the impression that the bigger your boobies are, the bigger the letter (A, B, C, D, etc.) and looking down at mine they definitely don't strike me as an 'A'. According to those two sites I linked above, it seems they're not basing the letter size (or I guess it's called the cup size) on the actual size of the breasts but rather on the difference between the circumference of the bust line and the circumference right under the bust line.
So...does anyone know if this is the actual right way of measuring? Or did I screw it up completely?
Current Mood: confused

You have to get two measurements: One measurement (don't mash 'em) around your breasts - the tape measure should cover your nipples. Like pasties. Or a ribbon. Or...anyway, just do it.
The second measurement should be around your ribcage, just under your breasts where the braband would be. Once you've done that correctly, consult the chart again. :D
Just ask the people in the store, they've seen millions of boobs, they know how to measure them.
This idea makes me wanna work in a place that sells bras. XD
I think it just told me I'm a C cup.
Uhm, like, no. xD
Ah thats a good point,, I wouldn't have a clue either DD:
Since I let my sister do the measurements for me xDDD;;
