When I went over to my friend’s house this afternoon, the first thing she said to me was “help me measure myself!” No, she’s not on some sort of diet or fitness regimen. She was trying to figure out her real bra size from this fit guide.
I was curious to see if I have been wearing the wrong size all along, and my suspicions were correct. Instead of the 38C I thought I was, I ended up being a 32J (32GG in UK sizes)!
I have yet to see if this new size is valid or not since only a few handful of stores carry sizes DD and up (have you ever heard of a J cup? I hadn’t until today!). When I finally take a trip down to Nordstrom to try on a couple (very expensive, ugh) bras in this size, I’ll report back to you, but I figured I’d leave the guide here for you all. The results may shock you!
The guide also provides information about how to determine if you have a wide or narrow breast root, if your breasts are shallow or projected, or if they are fuller on the top or bottom. After you have figured out what shape your breasts are, the guide provides a list of stores and bra models that fit best for your breast shape. I found it to be an extremely helpful read.
