I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
This thread inspired me to measure myself and do an online bra calculator. I've gotten different results from all of them that I found when I Googled.

This is why I continue to wear old bras.

Yea, that's some of the problem when looking for new bras. You have to look at every company's bra calculator when ordering just in case. I keep my measurements saved so I don't have to do them again.

I've done the same thing a few times already:

-Measure myself.
-Get frustrated at 80 bazillion different online calculator results.
-Jot down a few different results.
-Go to store.
-Try to actually find the absurd sizes calculators say I am.
-Get sweaty and frustrated trying on.
-Laugh at some as I hold the cup up to my boob and don't even bother trying on.
-Give up and go home empty handed.

Boobies, a blessing and a curse.

Spring, (if your comfortable sharing) what are your measurements? Maybe we can help

I first learned my try size at a store in Canada. It has since been confirmed by Dillards and Norstoms. All that being said, I only own 2 or 3 bras that size because of price. I am a 30G but wear 36DDD or 34F, but I can only make that work in one brand. Different brands, different sizes
Scrills, that's just crazy that you can wear all those different sizes in different brands. We have all this technology yet clothing and intimates manufacturers can't get on board with each other for sizing. They must be in bed with the mental institutions somehow because it's enough to drive you mad (and guess what, still need a bra even when institutionalized).

Band: 32
Bust: 39
Above the bust: 35

One site said I was a 36C HAHAHAHA, I wish! At least then I'd be able to find options in the store to try on. Another site said 34DDD which might be closer to accurate, although that falls into the category of some brands calling that a 34F and trying to remember all these letters and numbers once I'm in the store gives me a headache. I vaguely remember trying on some 34DDD and the band being too snug, but I guess that's just going to vary from brand to brand. I know this much, once I do find something that fits I'm buying a drawer full and never going again. (I know I'll have to because they change over the years, but it's nice to pretend.)

The only bras I currently own are Cacique balconette bras from Lane Bryant in a 38DDD, but they're known to run tight in the band size. So while that size fits me in those it absolutely doesn't in other bras, the band is too large on me. They're not awful bras, but they get really uncomfortable and I think there has to be a better fit out there for me.

I know cup sizes vary depending on the band size which makes it all the more confusing.

This is a neat calculator because you can go up/down in band or cup size and get the correct sizing.

It sounds like 34F is closer to your size.

I don't wear my expensive bra all that often because it feels tight. I was told that it should. 1) the stretch with time 2) I should have it on the last hook so as it gets looser, I can adjust to a hook closer in.

I think there are 2 reasons you are having trouble. One, few places stock anything over a DDD/F. Two some places still use the rule of adding 4" while other companies don't. I thought the adding 4" was more common with American brands

It sounds like you 32g or 34F is your size. But if the 34 is tight, you might have to go for 36E

I think the 36C comes from the old rules
32+4= 36"

1"difference = A
2"difference = B
3"difference = C

39"-36"=3 = C

That would make you a 36C. Ignore those rules :-)
Scrills, that's just crazy that you can wear all those different sizes in different brands.

Scrills, thank you for the input! I'm going to jot down these different sizes and look next time I'm in any deptartment stores and maybe I'll get lucky and find something.

I've considered ordering online, but have mercy I'd have to try so many different ones so all that money up front and the hassle of the return process makes that all seem just as daunting as going to the mall.

I hope that helps. I figure out Maidenform is the one inexpensive bra that works for me by dumb luck. I got some at Filene's Basement. but they stopped carrying it. I went to Kohls and found a different style. I tried on every brand and only Maidenform/Lillyette worked for me
Don't ask VS. they don't know what they're doing in there.

They told me I was a 38D and my mom was a 36C

My mom is definitely wider that me and smaller.

It made no sense.
I don't even wear the 38D I bought under their spell. Because its too big

I went to a specialty large breast swim shop and they got 34/36 DD

So idk.

Maybe you could stop in at one of those stores to have yourself measured? It's got to be easier than making yourself crazy with the calculators!

im all for any bra that comes off easily
I got measured once a few years ago at a Bali store and the woman could only offer me 3 bras to try and none of them were right. I felt so bad for her.

I'll have to pay attention next time I'm at either of those stores to see if they offer that here, I'm sure they do. I'll just have to put my game face on and force myself to do it. lol I can only imagine your daughters face, oh my goodness if my mom had sprung that on me I would have DIED.

OBB, you and Mr. Spring seem to have a similar thought process. This is disturbing. haha

There wasn't any kind of sign in Macy's, I just asked the woman at the register in that department. I do recall seeing signs for a fitting day (I don't remember what they called it) but who wants to make and appointment or wait in line to have the "girls" measured???

yeah, getting fitted only works out at a store that offers lots of sizes, otherwise they try to force you into the closest size they have. Norstroms is another good one
