How did you measure? This is a fantastic reference:

You can tell it's fitting properly if the band is mainly supporting your breasts (not the straps), straps are not slipping, the gore is tacking and all of your breast tissue is in your cup.

And please do not let anyone measure you with the "add 4" way! That's completely wrong, and will cause pain from lack of support!

I got 32 for the band
And 38 for the bust

But the cup sizes are wrong on the site I went to. It seems I am fitting D cups

Those are my measurements, and I wear a 32E. And I'm not large busted, by any means!

Try a few on, and see how they feel. There is even a website (Third Love) that will send you a properly fitting bra for 30 days, to try before you buy! I am wearing one right now, and you'd be amazed at how great it feels to finally have one that fits, lol

And it seems like your way measured with the plus 4, which is awful at true sizing. It was designed in the 30's, before modern elastic was used in bras, so they had to add on to accommodate the stiffer materials.

Cup size is dependent on band size. Try a 34DD, or 32E, and see how they feel!

Get measured by a professional. If the cups are small, you probably need a D cup.
