Urgh, you are just like Q from Star Trek! Always butting in when you are the least wanted...

Or do you suffer from gynecomastia and are secretly wearing a bra too, Q' ?

Oh Maria! That's priceless!!! (Though, I liked Q because he wasn't the typical member of the Continuum.) Haven't seen our Q' for a few years so gynecomastia could be an issue... I think he just likes breasts...

Thanks for the info! (And, the PM - sorry - will get back to you soon!) A bad fit makes for a really bad day, every day. Now must go find a calculator for converting inches into centimeters. Okay, I know how to do that conversion. ;)

Just putting out another view on the topic that's all.

It seems rather appropriate to post this photo here. The photo is titled "The Biggest Bra In The World" and I took the shot when I was up in Sydney last year.
What someone I know would call "boulder holders"!

Since this thread is already degenerating: the thing in the foto is not the world's biggest bra. The world's biggest bra is worn by an American woman who calls herself "Norma Stits". She suffers from Gigantomastia and earns money by starring in adult movies. Her breasts are officially the largest natural breasts in the world. Her bra size is 56 WW (US sizing system), she has a breast circumference of over 2 meters.

You won't be amazed any longer if you take into account that in order to get supportive bras you need to go down in bandsize. There is a reason they are making bras in 30, 28 and even in 26 backsizes. A woman who wears a 36 A has a 32 E/F and 30 FF/G when she switches to the lower bandsizes.

From what I read around the internet on brafitting around the world it seems that half the asian women out there wear bras with bandsizes that are too large. Grab a tape and use the size calculator I linked, sapphyre! It might open your eyes.

And just so that you can see what a well-fitting bra can do:

This woman switched from 36 B to 30 FF.

I've heard something like 8 out of 10 women in the UK are wearing the wrong Bra size.
Good old Marks and Spencer's do a good measuring service and they're in almost every town.
