Thanks for your response. I forgot about bringing up the other bras. Shoes designed and manufactured in Europe use a different numbering system, and you can spot this by looking at the stamp inside the shoes.

At that time, if the gore was a little shorter in height , it would have fit exactly like my Wacoal I have in 34H. Same cup size , but gore came up a little higher.
I still wear my Cleo , its small and I have quad but I like the firm cups. I love your blog. I love my freya. I went to a store that is about an hr away from me.
The woman had me try 2 different bras. One was a Fantasies 34HH moulded full cup the price was The other one was Elomi 36HH bandless cost was Can you please tell me what would work for me when I or a bra. I never tried any other ones. It Fits ok in the size, but I could probably go a cup size bigger. I definitely can go up a cup.
I also bought a Wacoal in a 36G, but it lefts under. So I probably would have to go at lease a size or two bigger in the cup. I only bought those because they were on clearance and my bras that I bought in freya my dog ate like 4. So I am wearing right now a 38H us that is cacique. I have a fantasie without padding and its a 34GG. I could probably go up one cup. I just measured myself again and the bra that I have on is the white cacique 38H.
The band is a little lose and the cup is a tiny big, but I wear this one when I am just laying down during the day. It does be job. I also have another cacique that has some padding under and some Ontop.
This one is a 38G and does not fit. The women told me that it would fit. I also forgot to add that I bought an Elomi about a year ago that is EL nue in a 34GG that is a hard cup or something. Yeah I tried it on at the store and the women said it looked really good on me. So when I put it on as soon as I got home I hated it and never wore it.
So once I find the right bra size. The twist I have seen on eBay for So If I sell that I will make on it. Sorry for all the post. Once I posted the first one. I forgot about bringing up the other bras.
Oh and I am top havey. I had my boobs done. I had 3 kids and my girls would get bigger. I ended up getting them done again 11 months later due to one being bigger then the other one. So the first set he put in the left and in the right when my right was always bigger. The 2nd time he put in both. I have so much breast tissue that no one knows I had them done since they look and feel real. So hopefully I will be able to and get all new bras.
You may also want to check out styles with a stretch lace like Panache Jasmine or Envy too. The lace tends to accommodate fuller tissue better, and the other styles should be open enough at the top to not cut into any tissue. Based on your measurements I would look at around the 34GG to UK H cup, particularly since you have found some bras which fit well in this size cluster, but you may want to start with H cups in general to ensure you have enough cup depth.

I like to look at reviews to see how people felt the band and cups ran to double-check. Do you know if that is true for her bras? Her brand is Von Follies.
In addition to checking out Lingerie Addict, I would double-check Bratabase to see if they have measurements available. It does seem like there are stateside retailers of Von Follies, like Bloomingdales, too if you want to see if a local place would have it available to try in person.
The cut of the bras and the shape of the cups may be at odds with you, which can create fit issues. I ordered a swimsuit top and it was 38dd from Curvy Kates from UK which I wear in the states and it was way to small. Here are a couple sexy ones:. I can never find bras that fit me in stores in the U.
I prefer plunge bras or bras that show a little more cleavage. What size bra should I be looking for and where should I be looking? I am happy to help. I also make some style recommendations too. Sometimes there are some fabulous boutiques a little further out, but having access to a fitter as well as the ability to try the bras first would really help.
Have a great day! I love your blog posts. Thanks so much for sharing what you know about this subject. It really feels like a jungle to me. I wanted to ask you if you know anything about the Fantasie sizes. Most of the time I wear a 65G European size. I recently started to order bras from UK and have figured out that a 65G should be a 30F.
But I noticed on a tag on a couple of bras by Fantasie, that say: Do you know anything about this? And thanks again for sharing your knowledge.
It has helped me a lot when picking bras. I am glad the blog has helped you navigate the jungle. Eveden has two sets of tags out there on the marketplace, and I know at least one of them is wrong. However, I know that Fantasie sometimes just takes their cup size and applies it across the board, meaning they will say a UK F cup is also a US F cup. Their conversions other sizing systems are not always accurate and have raised a lot of questions here lately too.
Hi, I am looking to buy a bra from Boux Avenue and I was wondering how their sizes run. I measured myself and found myself to be 28 inches around the rib cage underneath the breasts and then 32 inches around the breasts. So I assume that would make me a 28D. I have bought a UK sized bra off Amazon before, the Cleo Neve Plunge t-shirt bra, but I found the band to be too tight and the straps set too wide apart, making the cup wires dig into my armpits.
I have a small rib cage so that bra was too wide. What would you say about buying bras from Boux Avenue? Hi Erica, I usually buy Fantasie 32 G which fits me well but want to try Wacaol would I need the same size or do the Wacaol bras come up smaller?
The Wacoal 32G is smaller in the cup than the Fantasie 32G. Now, that said, Wacoal often cuts a pretty tight band, so you may be happier with a US 34H in their bras. Hi Lynda My measurements say 35 around to cage above breasts Am I wearing correct size else please correct both UK and U. Hi Erika, I am confused.
I measure a 28 underneath my breast but a 38 in bra band size fits me! That sounds like a pretty steep difference in measurement vs. Is it possible the 38 fits you best because you actually need a size like 28J or JJ but have sized up to ensure cup coverage?
I did this myself as a teenager and college student. A 38DDD gave me coverage, but the band was hopelessly big. Can you comfortably wear a 38 band on the loosest set of hooks when new? And is all of your breast tissue encapsulated by the cups?
Hi, I really want to order some bras from the UK but have no clue what sizes to get. I have measured my band at a 30 and my bust at a If a panche bra in 36 k is to small in the cup size but I was measured in a 34 JJ in a US store called intimacy. What size do you think I should looked in to. Sorry desperate in PA in the US. I hate bras they never fit right. Was the Panache bra in 36K the UK size? It was a UK 36k. Now you see why I hate bra shopping nothing fits right.
I live in the US. What size would I need in a bra from the US. And do you know of any place that sells the size I need so I can try them on? Thanks for your response. You can find someone to custom-make a bra, but the Ewa Michalak styles have received some very nice press.

They are a UK company that offers free International shipping from time to time.
That would probably be the easiest! I have always found it troublesome finding the right bras. I have found a brand in the US, Warner that are consistently comfortable and I need a 34D for their specific brand. When I bra shop in the UK no matter where. I find I try bras in that size and all seem squashed.
Can you recommend a brand similar to their style and what rough sizes I should be looking at in the UK? I am not as familiar with Warner bras, but I have seen from customers they sometimes run generous. You may want to size up to a 34DD in the UK. Also, what brand and styles would you recommend? Check out our Common Bra Problems http: Look across the "FROM" row to the size closest in value to the one you want to convert from.
Now, in the same converter table, find the row with the sizes of the region that you want to convert to. Let's call this the "TO" row. Finally, by looking straight up and down in the column, that is the same column that has the size you identified in the "FROM" row, find the same column in the "TO" row. The size in this column in the "TO" row is the converted size. For example, if you are an adult Japanese man, and know your size to be 26, and want to know your Mexican shoe size, then you would look in the adult table at the row labeled "Japan Men".
Find the column with a "26". Now look at the row for "Mexico" and look across until you are in the same column as the "Japan Men 26". You should see a "6.

Due to wide variations among shoe measurement systems, relying solely on these tables is not sufficient to guarantee everyone's happiness. I suggest sellers measure the inside of the shoe from toe to heel and list the measurement in inches and centimeters. Buyers should measure their foot from toe to heel. Buyers should request that sellers list the actual inside toe-to-heel measurement, if it is not provided. Without the actual measurements, insist on reasonable return policies.
