Sorry – what comes after DD??

Posted by on August 22, 2012

Well let me tell you folks – this is how the Bra scale goes:  A-B-C-D-DD-E-F-G and so on.  For those of you who are new at this, that measures the CUP size – the size of your boobs.  The other measurement (30-32-34-36…) measures the size of your around – of your back.   Here is the less known fact – if you have a big back, the cups are bigger – meaning that a 36B is equal to about a 32D.  Now, despite having known all of this for years, we decided to go to the Wizard of Bras and get a proper measurement.  My body has changed a lot over the years (aka my boobs are much smaller – and LOWER) so I thought it would not be a total waste of time.  And what did I find out?  I was wearing the wrong size – like apparently 80% of America.  As it turns out, I have a smaller back so was off about 3 inches that way – which also meant that my cup was off by 3 sizes.  I am not sure you really need to know the nitty gritty on my size but given how far down the alphabet I now am, I am doing everything I can to spread the word that size does, in fact, matter…
