Depends on your band size.  The next size up from a 36DDD would be a 38DDD.

Good question. My mom always thought she was a DD but ended up being some random size. Those bra's are so spendy!

Try a 40DDD.  The band and the cup will be bigger.  Sometimes even though it seems like just the cup needs to go up a size, the band does too.  I used to be a bra fitter so I spent a lot of time measuring boobies and telling women they weren't really the 34B they thought they were :-/

I think F is next if your cup size is increased. Do you have a Dillard's dept store close by? They usually have certified fitters there that can make sure you are in the right size.

 OK i wanna know, did most women wear bras that were too small or too large? I need to go get a few new ones... I got fitted last year into a 34C. bought some 36Cs in feb due to pregnancy, and Im busting out of these now!
