Average breast size in today's culture?

I read that in 1950 the average breast size was a B cup, but that's considered small today. I am a B cup, by the way. Now the average is a D cup.
I think it's mostly due to many women being overweight. 50% of the US is overweight, men and women.
And also because of plastic surgery.
What do you think?
Is B cup small or is this what most women would be if they were a healthy weight and had no implants?

  • I've read that breast size has increased over the years. But it's not much difference.

    An increase in average cup size does not necessarily mean an increase in breast size. I don't know if this has been done with cup size, but it's happened with clothing sizes. I think it's called size creep. The clothing industry uses psychology by resizing clothes. If someone fits a size 7 instead of needing a size 9, it makes the buyer subtly feel better. So they just remark the size.

    It happens gradually over time though. So they don't literally take a size 9 and remark it to size 7. My understanding is that over the years there has been a considerable amount of size creep, so sizes today can not be compared to sizes of the past.

  • I think a "B" cup can be almost perfect, they're usually nice and perky and will mostly likely never sag.

    • Mine are very perky. B cup definitely has advantages.

    • Ummmm... very perky are the ones I would love to kiss, lick and suck on!

  • if you're not flat or huge, then you're the perfect size since everything in between is attractive. so to call them small doesn't need to have a negative connotation. they may be small but they're still perfectly loveable. i have no idea what the average is but it doesn't matter to me.

  • Before I read your question I thought it was C - I agree with your surmising increased plastic surgery, I am not sure if people are heavier or lighter than before just maybe with the observation in the developed world the definition of poverty has changed, years ago poverty would have possibly meant starvation and maybe some emaciation.

    • I'm sorry but no. I have a 34b/c, and I am seriously considering implants. Implants keep their shape when a girl lies down and stuff.

  • I would define C cup to be the average size, but I don't feel like B cup is that small. Of course it depends on the band size also, since the cup gets bigger the bigger the band size is.

    I've always had a big cup size, even though I've gained weight just recently. I used to be closer to underweight than overweight, still having an E cup, now I've bloated to an F cup. I'm not sure, but I think some genetic factors contribute to the cup size, even more than weight.

    There was also a chart of average cup sizes throughout the countries, and the Nordic countries (I live in Finland myself) were on the bigger size as well as the US, even though people here aren't that obese in general.

  • Cup sizes are not universal and they are not uniform. It's impossible to compare then and now.

  • Well I'm 5' 10" weigh 140lbs and a natural 36GG (36JJ and 165lbs at present due to pregnancy) and I'm most certainly not overweight.

  • Well, I'm a C cup and at the same time very slim, so it really just depends on height and weight. It would be difficult to measure the average size because of all the different kinds of women today.

    • What hormones?

    • I have always lived in the US though and had whatever hormones that are in food. Why would it effect some women and not others?

  • I thought C was average
