I think it's an amazing educational resource for women, especially in an age where we are constantly bombarded with false images of what our body "should" look like. Melissa Rauch Bra Size Jul 3, As there are two components of a bra, both sized, unless one of those components measures the same, it's not really useful to say one is bigger than the other. And there's no way that a fourteen-ish year old girl has asked her boyfriend for bra fitting help. I was so delighted, at 15, to purchase and wear a 36B cup.
Welcome to Reddit,
Giving you the benefit of the doubt that you aren't just creeping for pictures of breasts, www. That being said it's quite likely that your girlfriend is not a 32B. It's a pretty uncommon properly fitted size and a very common size for people to end up in incorrectly. I'm not trying to look for pictures of breasts, I was just wondering what she actually has. I have no understanding of the sizes of A-H.
The gist is that cup size is not static. But the cup size means nothing without the band size. Your girlfriend's 32B has the same volume as 30C and 34A. What the letter itself means is the difference between the bust and underbust measurements. A B cup is a 2" difference, so a 32B is a 32" underbust and a 34" bust. A 38B is a 38" underbust and a 40" bust. We've done surveys before and it turns out the average size is closer to a 32F than the 36C or so that most people think it is.
I've been seeing comments on how it's not usually a good fit or something, so would that mean that the breasts are bigger or smaller than the 32B? And just saying it doesn't fit doesn't describe whether it's too small or too big; that depends on how it doesn't fit. But in general, the vast majority of women are wearing too large of a band and too small of a cup. If your girlfriend is in the wrong size, she's likely more like a 28DD or so. Maybe someone said it was a common incorrect size.
This means that it may be a big seller but that it doesn't fit all those women well. As there are two components of a bra, both sized, unless one of those components measures the same, it's not really useful to say one is bigger than the other.
If her correct size is 32D then she's bigger than she thinks, if her correct size is 30C then she's the same size as she thinks ie we are talking cup VOLUME. I think every young woman should see these photos, the media's portrayal of female anatomy is distorted and unhealthy. Thank you for making this site! My breasts are slightly assymetrical, had serious stretch marks that have faded , have HUGE areolas that are very pale, and a flat nipple usually. My first boyfriend told me and a lot of other people that they were ugly.
I've been self-conscious about them ever since that happened, and only one other person has seen them since then. However, this morning, after looking at your website for a while, I had an epiphany.
My breasts aren't ugly, they're just unique. Although, I still feel like my areolas are definitely the biggest I've seen on my size breasts, so it would be a good addition to your website.
I have always been self-conscious about them. They have always been big and not perky. One day I am planning on reduction surgery, I would just like to wait until I have children so I can breastfeed. I have always been normal weight, until I gained some weight recently so I went from a C to a D. This website does help me feel better about myself. I do have stretch marks, veins and the are a-symmetric. I have always been average body weight. Never obese, or thin. Right now I think I am a 32D.
Have roughly been around this height and weight since puberty. Over the past few years I've noticed that mine are more saggy than friends and also have stretch marks.
I developed at a really early age, I remember friends making remarks about them when I was in grade 4 and earlier. I have always wanted smaller breasts. But I am hoping that losing some weight will help with their size. I'm really embarrassed by how saggy they are, it's stopped me from getting close to anyone, because I am too embarrassed for anyone else to see them. Although this site has helped me a lot in gaining a bit of confidence about it, I still don't feel comfortable with myself, and am ashamed.
When I was a child I was fat and I lost weight very fast. I think I have a nice body, I have curves and I don't have extra pounds. The only thing that I don't like are my breasts. Currently I'm in an important relationship and I'm really ashamed to show my breast to my honey.
And when he asks me "why" I never have the courage to tell him that I don't like my breast. For me it's a serious problem, I spend hours in front of a mirror looking at them and trying to convince myself that they are just fine.
Thanks to this page I think I'm going to make a big step in accepting and showing my breasts. I'm not married and have no children. I'm obese and have noticed gradual sagging of my breasts. You can see stretch marks on the top of my chest.
I like my breasts but I wish they were more perkier, firmer and rounder. I don't think I'll ever opt for surgical enhancement as I want to have children someday and breastfeed them. Thank you for such an informative site. It's good to learn one's not abnormal. The last time I purchased bras, they were a size 32A.
But two months ago, I began taking Yaz a birth control pill , and my breasts have grown from 32 inches around to 36 inches around, so I probably wear about a 32C now. I am quite happy with my breasts and their shape. The pill has caused a lot of breast pain, tenderness, and swelling, but I am comfortable with it now.
I almost prefer my small breasts, as I am an active runner and cycler, but I do admit that the larger size makes me feel very feminine, and my man loves them as well though he liked them small, too. This website is amazing, and I have told many of my friends about it. I hope this picture of my average looking aka, beautiful breasts helps other women know that their breasts are amazing as well. I have not gotten official measurements, but I wear DD bras.
One tends to swim in the bra and one tends to overflow the boundaries of the bra. My boyfriend and I are rather happy with the size of my breasts. I learned in history class one day that it's good that I wasn't born a while ago. Something about busty girls crying themselves to sleep at night because they weren't flat chested like the best of flappers.
At age 30, I love my small breasts. I don't know what cup size I am, maybe an A cup? In the past I wore sports bras, but my new favorite "bra" is a piece of surgical tape over each nipple.
I am lucky to have a wonderful husband who loves me the way I am. He calls my breasts "fun size" like the mini candy bars which I think is cute. Last year my mother underwent a mastectomy for breast cancer, which makes me realize I should appreciate what I have. Life is too short to obsess about physical appearance. I'm 19, C and have never been pregnant. I've been extremely self-conscious about my breasts since I got them, but thanks to this site I now frequently go bra-free.
I always felt my breasts were very shapeless, far apart, too low on my chest and weren't round or perky like I would prefer them to be. However, I discovered this site a few years ago and thank goodness. Without seeing all these natural breasts I think my insecurities would have made it hard to have healthy relationships as I used to be very critical of myself. I've returned to your natural breast gallery many times over the years and it's helped so much. Recently I read your bra-free page and it made me realize that breasts as small as mine really don't need a bra, so I started to go without, but would look in the mirror and dislike how flat and droopy my boobs looked, and then it really hit me, how am I ever supposed to feel comfortable with my breasts if I'm constantly wearing a bra to make them look big, perky, and round the opposite of the way they ARE?
I no longer wish to deceive myself and proudly go braless. I hate that it's so taboo because I really feel that it's extremely important in becoming comfortable with your breasts and honestly, I could have NEVER done it without this website! It is difficult to achieve a natural looking result when increasing from a 32B to a very large size because the woman would be unlikely to have enough skin on her chest to allow the implants to sit comfortably.
However, if a woman had 32B breasts due to a dramatic weight loss, she would probably be a candidate for a larger size than typically recommended because she would have extra skin. In addition to the physical elements that a woman should consider before choosing her desired breast implant size, doctors also stress how important it is to manage expectations. Many doctors cite that patients with smaller breasts may want huge implants because they have been self-conscious about their chests and think large breasts will be a quick fix to their insecurities.
These patients also tend to think that as soon as they get the implants, they will never have to worry about them again. Jewell, who has conducted clinical trials for implant manufacturers, says: Regardless of body type, wearing a push up bra with a tight top will make the breasts appear more noticeable than wearing no bra and a baggy sweatshirt.
Generally speaking, the thinner a woman is in her midsection, the larger her breasts will appear proportionally because fabric lays across the part of the body that protrudes furthest. In fact, a woman with 32B breasts would be more likely to need to wear padded bras in order to fill out certain clothing.
