Guide To Bra Sizes

How Different Bra Manufacturers Cater To Different 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.

These specialty bras come in neutral shades with occasional styles in brighter colors. If, you wear a C cup to DD cup, these full bras may be a great option.


Carmen's Tip

When bra shopping, take your time finding a bra style that fits your needs. Once you find a style you like, be willing to try different sizes.

If, something doesn't look or feel quite right, don't be afraid to ask for a different bra band or cup size.

Don't be afraid to try, try, try and try again to get the best possible bra fit.
