Perfect Bras: Does Bra Size Matter?

You should be flexible when trying on - getting too caught up in numerical sizes can mean you're sacrificing fit.

No one can see your "size" but everyone can see how you actually look in your bra. It's the foundation for the silhouette your outfit will ultimately put on display, so get your bra fit right, even if it means wearing a 34DD when you really thought you were a 36C.

Also keep in mind, one brand's 34C could be another brand's 32DD; what matters is how you look and feel in a bra, not the numbers and cup size on the label.

A couple of things to keep in mind when shopping for your bra: cup size doesn't remain constant throughout a line of bras-it increases and decreases proportionally with band size-so if you go to a smaller band, you may need a bigger cup. (Example: You think you're a 36B, but your bra isn't fully supportive? Consider a 34C or D.
