Guide To Bra Sizes
Bra Sizes - Why does the same size vary so much from one bra manufacturer to another? For example, a 36C should have the same bra fit no matter which bra you choose, right?
In theory, yes. But, much like your favorite pair of jeans, sizes can vary... a lot. Why?
Lingerie manufacturers cater to different niches in the market.
So, for example one who manufactures full bras or plus size bras won't have the same 36C as say one who manufactures petite bras.
Sound confusing? It's not really, once you understand the big picture - which lingerie brands design for you. Let's take a quick look ... you'll be on your way to finding the best bras you've ever had.
