  • Yeah when I thought I was a C I was actually a D...I guess I was in denial but its much more comfy now.

  • You know sometimes I think I will never wear an underwire bra again. I have been wearing little bralets (the "sports bras" with little tiny straps, sometimes called a shelf bra) ever since I was pregnant with my first (she will be four in october and we are about to have our fourth any day now). My boobs look a little saggy but I'm not much to look at right now anyway lol. Anyhow I had gotten measured for a nursing bra right before I had my first and I was measured at a 40F !!! What the heck? Seriously, no way could I be that big. Well the other day I put that bra back on and sure enough it fits, although last summer I was running a lot after I had my third in March and I was wearing a d cup. I haven't been measured in forever but sometimes I just think it can't be right.

  • If you take fabric measuring tape and measure right under your bust line and add 5 thats your size if its odd add 1
    then measure the fullest part of your bust then add the origional number from your bustline and subtract that and if the diff is 1 your an a 2 your a b 3 a c 4 a d and so on

  • I've measured myself to find my accurate size, but I still have to try on all bras that I consider purchasing because not all manufacturers make "true" sizes, nor are all styles of bras comfortable.
