I've asked other women at the gym and most agree.  If you train and have less bodyfat, more of a tapering back, bra sizes become almost irrelevant.  If the cup fits, then the band around the back feels like you're being hugged by a boa constrictor. Sometimes the opposite is true. If it fits around the back, the cup floats (depending on what you have to fill it  Wink). Also, when you have less fat around the hips, you get grief from the saleswomen if you want a matching bra-knicker set in different sizes, or you find the bra in your size, but not the knickers.  It's tough being a woman.  Angry

Also, if you go to Victoria's Secret they will measure you and get you the right cup size and rib size 99% of the time...if you don't mind being measured by a chick you don't know, lol.

I had implants done Migs.  There's a whole thread on it here on the pics board.  They (getbiggers) loved raggin on me for having it done, but whatever.  I did it for me, not them.

I have a rather small rib size (34) and large cup size (full D).  At first the doctor was like no, that's too big for your frame, but when I tried on the samples...he said "ok they look pretty good.  your back end (ass) balances them off".  Nice way of telling me I have a big ass.  lmao  Although my waist is only a 26 so they make me more curvy.  And I like curvy.

The best Victoria Secret store I've ever shopped in was their flagship store on N. Michigan in Chicago.
I went completely nutso in that store.

I don't bother with bras anymore either. Haven't worn one since May 2004, and I'm loving it!

Better to PM Jag, Al.  Remember that women may be lurking here trying to decide if they want to post here or not.

Thanks for the restraint Grin

I hate them too and try to avoid wearing them whenever I can!!! But it's not always possible. At work going sans comes under the heading of sexual harrassment.  Angry

Last time I went through customs was wearing a little semi see-through tee with a jacket on top and got pulled aside for the interrogation... so off with the jacket. Quite the spectacle. Won't ever do that again, lol.

Yes, they are great, and if you live near a Nordstrom, they rock too! I always thought I was a 34C or 36B, but when I went to Nordy's, I found that I am actually a 32D! I bet many of you who have been in D or DD cup will need to go a little higher in the alphabet  Smiley

Couple of years back I took a part time job at night counting inventory.  One of those jobs where you basically go into a store with a calculator hanging off your belt and proceed to count every item in the store.  Monotony at it's finest.  Anyway, over the course of the month that I continued to do this, I ended up counting 2 Victoria Secret stores and 2 Maidenform stores as well.  Hours spent digging through panties, bras, etc., you name it.

Anyway, while this seemed at the beginning like it was going to be fun (before I got there), after the first hour into it I had already had my fill and was dieing to get home already.  If you understand the working in a bakery philosophy then you will get where I'm coming from.  Since that time I am no longer as enamored seeing a woman in VC undergarments  Undecided

didn't think it would be that hard.  If you have an Intimacies they do bra sizing and also carry a selection for bustier women as well as making custom sized bras.  But you probably already know that.

It's hard, not only that, but when you're over a "C" cup the thickness of the band and the straps all of a sudden take over the bra and look like old ladies bras.   Undecided

Tell me about it! I soooo f'in hate that!  Angry

Then you end up with that groove in your back down your lats, that just ruins the silhouette and makes ya look like you have fat hanging off your sides when you really don't!  Angry   Angry   Angry   Angry

I'd rather poke out somebodies eyeball than have groves in my lats.

I have to plug Nordstrom again because they have some great bras in larger sizes that are beautiful and comfortable! I thought if i went for a smaller size around it would show too tight in snug-fitting tops, but they really don't. It's definatly worth a try- my mom always wore a 34D or a 36C and she found that she's actually a 34DD or a 32E-  UGHH!!!!! I wish I had inherited her breast size! tee hee  Grin
