The number indicates how broad the girl is around that part of her ribcage. The letter indicates the size of her puppies...
34D and 36C would *sort of* be compatible, though not perfectly so. For your wife, it should be 38C = 36D, but it sounds like you went to a different store or something.
A sales rep is paid to get you to buy stuff. If something's not moving, she'll sell it to you as a perfect alternative to what you want. That's her job...
Pillow? You guys picked the wrong brand. If she knows the brand and size she likes, she can get them in bulk online. It's easier that way and you don't need to deal with the store clerk's bs.
As an aside, I think it's very sweet of you to accompany your wife when she's shopping for this stuff. It really does make it easier when we know what will make our guy look, lol. I was in the lingerie section of a department store once and saw a woman walking around with her husband trailing around behind her. "This one?" She'd ask, pulling up or pointing at one thing or another. He'd sigh and say, "No." in a bummed out tone. People in the store could hear them since it was quiet except for their dialogue. "This one?" "No..." After about 12 or 15 tries, we hear this loud "YES!" and a funny sound -- the guy pulling all the display into the shopping cart. A few of us laughed into our scarves. I think that was one of their better Valentine's, lol. You should've seen them at the register. Priceless.
