What does the bra size measurement mean?

Anonymous
i know the letter is for cup size, "A" being smallest cup size. by cup size, do they mean the size of the actual breast?

so what does the number mean?

i know that women have to measure twice: once for the circumference around the back and nipples, and the second time for the underboob region.

you are free to correct me, give me examples, photos, etc.

what do you mean by back size?



also, in addition to what the measurement means, how does the number affect physical appearance. lets say you have 2 women that are a 32C and a 34C. what is the difference in physical appearance?
