If US companies make that size, it would most likely be around a V cup. Hopefully, more manufacturers will acknowledge the need for higher cup sizes and product some options! I bought a bra in Ireland last summer at Bramora. The lady put me in a panache 34HH and for the first time ever a bra fit!!. I have since ordered bras from Bravissimo still panache and can wear an H or HH depending on the style plunge needs to be a little bigger. If I wanted to order from a different company and try a different brand what would you suggest?
I am so tired of the guessing game and I cannot find a store within miles that I could get sized in. A Cleo by panache fits me perfectly. I wanted to know what would you recommend for strapless bra? Both give great support in GG cups! In what bra do you have the 38HH?
Once I have a frame of reference for what size you need, I can better recommend which size to buy in the Lucy. Hope that helps, and if you want to discuss this privately, please feel free to email sophisticatedpair[at]gmail[dot]com.
Your blog has been very helpful! I am afraid to go up a band size because the band seems to fit but I also am afraid the 32FF would be to big in the cup. I have tried the 32FF in Curvy Kate Emily and had to return because the straps were cutting in to my arms so I thought the cups were to large maybe??? Have you looked at other brands too? Freya and Cake both make nice nursing bras in that range! When I was a 42 bust I was wearing Wacoal in a 34H. I decided to try Cleo and bought a 34G.
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. You may also like the following styles depending on breast shape: I hope this helps, and if you have more questions, please feel free to email me!
Hi Erica nice blog! 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. The device also measures the length of the arch, or the distance between the heel and the ball metatarsal head of the foot. For this measurement, the device has a shorter scale at the instep of the foot with an indicator that slides into position.
If this scale indicates a larger size, it is taken in place of the foot's length to ensure proper fitting. For children's sizes, additional wiggle room is added to allow for growth. Some shoe stores and medical professionals use optical 3D surface scanners to precisely measure the length and width of both feet and recommend the appropriate shoe model and size. In the Continental European system, the shoe size is the length of the last , expressed in Paris points , for both sexes and for adults and children alike.
The last is typically 2 to 2. It is also used in Middle Eastern countries such as Iran , Brazil —which uses the same method but subtracts 2 from the final result, in effect measuring foot size instead of last size [ citation needed ] —and, commonly, Hong Kong.
The Mondopoint system is based on average foot length and foot width for which the shoe is suitable, measured in millimetres. The length of the foot is measured as horizontal distance between the perpendiculars in contact with the end of the most prominent toe and the most prominent part of the heel. The width of the foot is measured as horizontal distance between vertical lines in contact with the first and fifth metatarsophalangeal joints. The perimeter of the foot is the length of foot circumference, measured with a flexible tape at the same points as foot width.
The origin of the grade is zero. Standard foot lengths are defined with interval steps of 5 mm for casual footwear and steps of 7. Because Mondopoint takes the foot width into account, it allows for better fitting than most other systems. A given shoe size shall fit every foot with indicated average measurements, and those differing by no more than a half-step of the corresponding interval grid. Mondopoint system is also used by NATO and other military services.
The standard is maintained by ISO Technical Committee "Footwear sizing designations and marking systems"; as of , a new revision is under development. Foot length and girth foot circumference are taken into account.
There are different tables for men's, women's, and children's less than 12 years of age shoes. Not all designators are used for all genders and in all countries. Foot lengths are aligned to 5 mm and 7. Optional foot width designations includes narrow, normal medium or regular , and wide grades. Infant sizes start at 16 95 mm and pre-school kids at 23 mm ; schoolchildren sizes span 32 Adult sizes span 33 mm to 44 for women and 38 mm to 48 mm for men. It contains three conversion tables for adults and children which feature major shoe sizing systems e.
The adult shoe sizes are calculated from typical last length, which is converted from foot length in mm by adding an allowance of two shoe sizes:. Direct conversion between adult UK, European and Mondopoint shoe size systems is derived as follows:. Chat or rant, adult content, spam, insulting other members, show more.

Is US size 42 medium or small? Shoulder edge to end of leather sleeve Are you sure that you want to delete this answer? In order to take advantage of the great deals on eBay one has to learn how to properly measure a coat that fits well and to compare those measurements to those provided by the eBay seller.
DO NOT rely on a tagged size. Instead measure the jacket in your wardrobe that fits you best. Then use them as a baseline when looking at possible purchases on eBay. There are five measurements that most sellers provide when selling a tailored jacket. It is the measurement that varies the least, it cannot be easily changed altered, and it determines the size of the jacket.
In general the tagged size refers to the chest measurement of the individual. This is NOT the case if it did the jacket would be so tight you would have difficulty breathing and certainly would not be able to move. A size 42 jacket would have an actual chest outseam measurement of Or some combination thereof.
To measure the chest of a jacket that fits you well, lay it on a clean flat surface and button it. If it is a two or three button jacket button the second button from the bottom only. If it is double breasted button it completely. Arrange the jacket so that you get an accurate measurement.
In the first picture the jacket is arranged properly. Picture 1 Picture 2 In the second picture it is stretched too far which gives an inaccurately large measurement. You can tell it is stretched to far because the lapels are buckled outward.
Picture 3 In the third picture the jacket is not stretched out far enough. If you arrange it this way the fabric will be bunched up at the back of the jacket — giving an inaccurately small chest measurement. This same method applies to all five measurements. Make sure you stretch the area you are measuring to the point where you are measuring the full amount of the fabric present - but do not overstretch it. If you overstretch it you are simulating a jacket that does not fit. The waist of the jacket can be found at different points depending on the make.
