The D-Cup Deception

January 6, 2018

 

Did you know that bra sizes range from 28 AA to 52 O? Most retailers carry a selection of this range, generally 32 A to 40 DDD. Consequently, many people assume that a D-cup is a large bra size. However, when you consider that they make an O-cup, a D-cup is quite small in comparison.

 

All D-cups are not created equal. A 30 D and 38 D are vastly different cup sizes. This is because the band and cup size are interrelated. As the band size grows, the volume of the cup grows as well. This is why a woman who is a 30 D looks smaller than a woman who wears a 38 D, even though they both wear D-cups.

 

At DEBra Lingerie we have many customers who are surprised to learn that they are a D-cup or higher. In fact, in 2013, the lingerie retailer, Intimacy, surveyed 60,000 of their customers and found that the average bra size was a 34 DD. However, many women frequent stores that carry a limited range of cup sizes. When a store doesn’t carry a cup size that is congruent with a woman’s band size, they will often give her a larger band size in order to accommodate her cup needs. Therefore, a woman who is a 34 F may believe she is a 38 DD.

 

Although a larger band size provides a cup that fits, if the band is the wrong size, the bra won’t properly support the weight of the breasts. Their weight will cause the band to ride up as the breasts pull the cups down. This also accounts for the popular statistic, “8 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong bra size.”

 

A bra fit specialist knows how to choose a bra that will meet your needs and give you the look you desire. At DEBra Lingerie we are a team of bra fit professionals, specially trained to find your “perfect fit.” We have a new location in Pointe-Claire Village along with our flagship store in NDG. While we specialize in D-O cups, we offer fitting sessions to women of all sizes.
