    I just buy what I think I am. I've never been measured.
    I'm a 36B atm, but want to get down to a 34B.

    I wouldn't mind being a C cup either :rolleyes:

    34E.

    I wouldn't trust internet sizing sites.

    All the people I know that have been measured properly have found they were actually a different size.

    And the majority of people I know that have been measured properly went up at least one cup size. :yes:
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Surely 34B and 32C are the same size?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    marks and spencer are crap at measuring. they always give measurements that are too big round the back and too small in the cup. Im not the only person whos said this.
    I always have to try bras on in the shop, as different shops have different sizes. Its really annoying.

    32D.

    i got measured properly, la senza, if i remember correctly.

    unfortunately not many people like to make bras in my size :mad:
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    i'm a 14DD (aussie sizing)

    And i just buy what fits, i'd never buy a bra of the internet.
    dodgy

    I got meassured once and she told me that I was a d-cup!
    God is playing a cruel joke on me, cause I am obviously not, and sometimes even b-cups seem a bit too big :(
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Im a 38B but i think i should go get mesured again coz not done in ages.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I fit a 34C.

    But they measured me as 34D.

    Me thinks not.

    all the big sizes in bra look like granny bras

    Yes. Try finding a 38D bra that'll fit and still make you look sexy, on a studenty kinda budget.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Bravissimo Bravissimo Bravissimo.

    :D

    Though studenty budgets are a problem :(

    im a 34dd, and it pisses me off that that bigger busted girlies have to fork out up to £35 for a bra, when smaller chested girl can go to primark and get three bras for a fiver!!! :mad:

    3 for a fiver? you exaggerate no?
    if not anyone know nearest primark to greenwich?;) :D

    The one on the left is a 30ff, and the one on the right is a 30f. As I was going through puberty, M&S told me I was a 36A - the next day I wasn't convinced and went to another shop, and was correctly measured at 30D. I've ordered bras from the R+P site, because it saved me the time of going to London (although I live there now) to get them. To me, they're worth it, but it's annoying that I have to fork out about £50 a time. Ah well, can't wait for the reduction :D

    well- maybe a fiver each.
    Ive seen bras up to a DD or E cup in peacocks , and I know marks and spencer do large sizes.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru

    Well it is only fair that you pay more since our bras are made from half the amount of material :p

    Hehe aye, but you get them cheaper, it's easier for you to get nice designs, and it's a hell of a lot more likely you'll be able to pick up a bra in your size on your average shopping trip than a larger chested lady.

    And it's not our fault *stomps*

    :p

    Actually that confuses me! Cos whenever I go in to M&S or wherever all I see is huuuuge sizes that i could practically live in, I can never find smaller sized bras. Then the other day my mate, who is lets say "larger chested" was moaning that when she goes in they only have small sizes. It's a conspiracy! :eek2:

    Hehe, exactly. And if I'm ever lucky enough to see a bra in my size in the high street, it usually looks so ridiculously huge that it's just...well, ridiculous really. And somewhat depressing to think that I'm that huge. When really, I'm not.

    Perhaps that's why blokes get the wrong idea about bra sizes :chin: For example, some mates of mine will go on about 'this well fit bird' with 'fucking HUGE tits', who must be 'a DD!!'. Which really, IMO, isn't that big.
