No we're about the same size. About 85% of women wear the wrong bra size (I actually think more than that, but that's why studies say). Most women over estimate the band size and under estimate the cup size. Because they never take the time out to get measured or measure themselves.
So we en up stuffing ourselves into bras that don't fit and assume all of them are uncomfortable.
That's probably your correct size look online at places like bra stop that specialize in small band big cup bras. Also check out a blogs called thin but curvy. Changed my life. I'd been stuffing myself into 32DDs because I thought it fit (and they we're the only ones in target), but after measuring myself my band is a 28 and my bust is a 35 so I'm about an F cup but an EE tends to fit me better.
And don't add 5 inches to the band. That's a measuring system that was put in place during the 50's to sell women whatever bra size is on the rack to make more money. Just think about if, if your a small and we're looking for a snug top you wouldn't buy and extra large right?
