How do I know what my bra size is? Victoria Secret sucks I hate it! I went there and the lady measure me and told me 36D, but when I tried on the stupid bra it felt to tight! So I adjusted it and it has been feeling uncomfortable over the years. My best friend had thought I was a DD. Well I don't know. All I know is that my breast sag, I'm only 19 and I hate it. What should I do?
Get measured at a department store, like Macy's. I love VS's underwear but I have big boobs and their bras do not work for me. And, the lady at VS told me to get a 36D..did not fit me at all, and I have always been a 32. A few weeks later I went to Nordstrom and she told me I was a 32DD which made a LOT more sense and fit a lot better.
You're supposed to tell them if it's too tight. I went to VS to get fitted too, and they did measure me and hand me bras of that size, but they always asked me if it was comfortable or not. I was told I'm between a C and D, so I tried many on and based my decision on whatever fit best. Also, if this is over the years and you're 19 at the moment, then you've probably changed sizes. Go shopping again and get something that fits you properly, I know how annoying it is to wear things that are uncomfortable.
I got measured at Nordstrom and they told me I was 30D which fits really well, Victoria's Secret will basically tell you your bra size depending on which sizes they carry. The lady at VS told me I was 32C which is technically correct but they don't carry 30D sizes so she told me I was the size that they do carry if that makes sense lol
My breast size fluxuates a lot throughout the year. I was once a D and now I'm an A. I would recommend to go back and get measured since you're supposed to go every 6 months. You can get a second opinion just to be sure of your size. If you are having trouble with your back then maybe visit the doctor to get advice on what you can do. I know a few girls that have had to get breast reduction because their boobs were too big and it caused medical issues.
I totally know where your coming from I thought I was a 36 D. When infact I'm a 32FF. God knows how the woman got tht wrong. But the bra I wear feels too small. And now its like the quality has gone after a few washes. Its like twenty quid a bra. I have to actually go to la senza for bras. As my boob size is rare.
Just because its your correct bra size doesn't mean every bra is going to fit! I can try on the same style from the same brand I've worn for the past year in the same size that I know fits me and still have problems. Finding a good bra is all about putting in the time to find one that fits you right. I hate to shop but I'll put in 4 hours to shopping for a new bra. Translation: Go find a bra that fits.
P.S. I'm small chested but my better endowed friends really like the maiden form bras.
Go to somewhere with quality. La Senza told me I'm a 40-DD I'm actually a 36-H... Never trust La Senza or Victoria's Secret. Go somewhere that provides for a fuller bust. You may be quite shocked what you get.
Sometimes I think the individual bras can be off a little bit when they're produced. I have one that is the same way. I know its my size, but its snug. All of my other bras in that size fit, however. If you've had the same bra for years, it may be time to get a new one. Also, if you gain or lose weight ... you may need a new bra.
