Is BB cup an actual bra size?

No BB is not an actual cup size. Cup sizes vary depending on the country you are in as well as the company but usually follow the general formula of: "AA, A, B, C, D, DD/E, DDD/F, DDDD/G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, etc.."

The reason for so many D's is because when the sizing system was developed, it did not cater for anything below an A or above a D.

Here in Australia, all sizes have a double equivalent except B and C. All the double sizes fit between their corresponding letter size and the next letter above with the exception of the AA being a smaller size than and A.


Is 42c a 40d bra size?

No, but they are so close in size that if you fit one, you would fit the other reasonably well. Either might the correct fit for a figure that is (for example) 46 inches total. When doing bra fittings you frequently shift both the band size and the cup size by one in order to find the correct fit.

Is there such thing as a AAAA bra?

Yes. At least one bra (the Lavand patented distraction bra by Bita Saviss) offers 36AAAA and 38AAAA sizes. This is a specialty push-up bra for small breasted women. They also offer 26AA, which is possibly the smallest standard band size out there. Other than a few "petite" specialty brands that offer AAA cup sizes and band sizes as low as 28, AA cups and 30 or 32 band sizes are the minimums for the bulk of the industry. (This information is correct to the best of my knowledge as of 14 May 2015, and is subject to change at any time. The sizing system is a US bra size system. Also, while manufacturers list such sizes, how the size is determined varies from brand to brand or even from model to model within the same brand. Other manufacturers may well make a smaller size, but size their product differently.)

How do you work out your bra size?

Any guide to working out your bra size is only ever that - a guide. You might be lucky and find that you have the perfect fit first time but, more likely, you will probably need to try sizing up or down (particularly on the cup size) until you find the bra that is just right for you.

This is because you will find that different styles of bra will fit you differently, even if they all come from the same manufacturer. Also it is important to remember that your breast size can change with age, pregnancy, breast feeding, gaining or losing weight and during your monthly period.

To find your bra size you need to take accurate measurements from your body. The best way to be measured is to go to a department store and have yourself fitted as it is not always easy to measure yourself accurately.

Many women are wearing the wrong size, on the wrong hook and have the straps too loose or too tight. If your breasts fall out when you bend over, your straps fall off your shoulders, you can feel the wire or the band in back creeps up you need a new size. A quality, properly fitted bra will help with back pain and prevent shoulder grooves and is good for your chest muscles and can slow the sagging effects of time and gravity.

If you do want to try finding your bra size for yourself, have a friend measure your chest below the breasts with the arms relaxed at your sides. Don't pull the tape tight. Take the number of inches and add 5. If the new number is even that will be your band size. If the new number is odd, you need to add 1 to give you an even number and that will be your band size. The band size is the number part of a bra size.

To find your cup size (the letter part of a bra size), measure around the fullest part of the breasts (usually straight around nipple height). Subtract this measurement from your first number to find your cup size. If there is no difference you should try an AA cup, for one inch difference try an A cup, for two inches try a B cup, and so on, working your way through these sizes:

for UK cup sizes

AA, A, B, C, D, DD, E, F, FF, G, GG, H, HH, J, JJ, K

for US cup sizes

AA, A, B, C, D, DD/E, DDD/F, G, H, I, J, K, L

What is normal size of the bra for 24 years girl?

Actually there is no bra which comes in normal size. All bras are made for a particular shape and size. Bra size always depends on your body shape, bust size and band size. Every woman has their unique shape and size and they also have their own comfortability of bra. Two women with the same size can not feel comfortable in the same size bra because they may have the different bust shape for which bra size and style varies.
