Bra sizes? what's what? how do you tell.. and what do.the numbers mean?

Like what's the difference between

34D 32D 34C

Like that.. What do the numbers and letters mean..

So the letters the cup size?

And the numbers are strap size?

So a girls would want a big cup but a small strap? Or vice versa?

And how do you tell the strap size veses the cup size?

• A-B-C-D etc represent the cup size

28-30-32-34-36 etc represent the band size

HOWEVER

Not all A's are equivalent and this goes for the rest of the letters. A 34D isn't necessarily interchangeable with a 36D just as the 36C wouldn't necessarily be interchangeable with a 34C. For instance, a 36C can typically be alternated with a 34D; a 32B can typically be alternated with a 34C; a 34C can be alternated with a 32B

But, not all can be interchangeable. But some brands are so different you'll find many women go from being in between

Generally speaking though, AA= flat chested; A=Small to flat chested; B=Small or average depending on her build; C= Average & generally the "universally" flattering size; D=big; DD+=huge etc

This is why it's important for girls to get measured. Apparently, about 90% of females wear the wrong bra size; there's more to it than just cups and assuming

• It was correct up until the DD+ is huge part. That is an outdated and wildly inaccurate misconception. I will also add that the band size is the measurement under the breasts around the ribcage. The cup size is then found by taking the measurement around the fullest part of the bust and subtracting the ribcage measurement. DD is only a 5 inch difference between ribcage and bust, which is not that much. These are what correctly measured DDs look like: www.brabandproject.com/.../search

Here's me measuring as a 30FF. As you can see FF is not large at all. http://imgur.com/a/m71Li
