Thanks to a RealSelf member, I came across this link to an online bra size calculator (with a convertor and international measurements as well.)
Looks handy! What size are you?
Most women are wearing the wrong bra size because they add 4 or 5 to the band. This is absolutely incorrect, a scheme concocted in the 30s by manufacturers to shoe-horn all different women into a few sizes. Your band size is your ribcage measurement. If you've tried a smaller band in the past and it didn't fit, it is because the cups are still too small! And you must make sure you "scoop and swoop" all breast tissue into the cups.
These are two much more accurate calculators. For example, I was wearing a 32B or 34A, turns out my best fit is a 28 F. And that sounds huge! It's not, cup size is relative only to band size, so an F cup on a 28 band is really not that big. Some places that carry 30 band sizes: Nordstrom, sometimes Dillards/Macys Places that carry 28s: brastop.com, herroom.com Happy bra shopping...
Thanks for your input!
Good to know! Thanks for the tip.
