what is your breast/bra size? I've never heard of some sizes.

edeneve edeneve
I just ran across a lingerie discussion comment where a lady is 36K. I've never heard of a K. I have a friend who is F. but I'd never heard of that size till I met her. what is your breast/bra size? do you know someone w/ an unusual bra cup size, not the whole bust measurement?

My mom's been pretty much anywhere from G to M in the time I've been alive, depending on her overall weight, and I know she had them around Ds when she was a pre-teen. I feel pretty lucky to be 'just' an E.

I wear a DD. When I was pregnant, my nipples got larger and so did the areola area, but the breast size stayed the same, if a bit more "full".

I wouldn't say I am unusual, I can wear either a 34B or a 32C it all depends on the cut/brand of the bra. As I always tell my female friends it is wise to know the sister sizes when it comes to bras.

Now my boobs do go up in size during my period, any other girls have this issue? As in I am in a 34C/32D So I have a dresser drawer full of bras in various sizes.

I was a 42 J and growing when I had my breast reduction several years ago. Oh my God, what a blessed relief to have the three pounds removed from each breast! Unfortunately, they continue to grow, but at a much slower pace. I am now a 38 DD and I'm fine with that. Unfortunately, I never lose breast size when I lose weight, LOL.

I had to go to Boobpedia.com to comprehend what 42J was.

OMG!!! you poor thing. that's awful to be that big - 3 lbs each?! I can't even IMAGINE being that huge. I've always read that breast size can't increase.

I can only imagine my back aching, posture pulled out of place, difficulty finding clothes that fit. I'm sure you experienced a lot more difficulties.

what size clothes did you wear?

ha, I have a couple friends that wish their breasts would grow.

so what size were you reduced to & how long have your breasts been growing since then?

If you're wearing the right size bra, you don't wind up with poor posture or a sore back due to your breasts. I mean, finding clothes that fit is definitely a huge issue, but that's really the only one I encounter. Mine currently weigh just under 10 pounds total, and I wear a 28HH-J. A great place to go to see some of the more uncommon sizes (small band, large cup) is here, if you're having trouble visualizing anything. =)

I must be defective, then. Even wearing the right size, I was still in a LOT of pain when I was a 36K. I did notice a marked difference when I was wearing the correct size vs. when I wasn't, but even if I wore a super-supportive "granny bra," I was still nearly in tears everyday once I put on my bra because it hurt so bad. It was actually where my bra was that hurt - around my ribs and my shoulders. And YES, I was wearing the right size band, and YES I had everything adjusted correctly - for some reason, my nerves are just way too sensitive for that much weight/pressure. I was in far less pain when braless, but employers/the general public don't enjoy when you do that.

I definitely don't think there's generally any need for "super supportive granny bras" - perhaps you were unable to find the shape that worked for you? Were you FOT/FOB, soft/firm, round/teardrop, wide/narrow rooted, close set, high or low, etc? I have a lot of trouble with certain brands, but it's pretty easy for me to make sure to avoid those now that I've figured out what suits me best. Which brands did you try (and makes, if you remember)? Have you since had a reduction (just because you refer to your size in the past tense)?

I tried pretty much every shape, style, etc. that I could. I worked at a lingerie shop for nearly four years, but even all the knowledge I gained there would not help me to find a comfortable bra. The "granny bras" were the least painful, but my nerves were so sensitive that even those put me in tears. I think it was more a nerve issue than anything else, honestly. I have an odd sensory perception disorder, so even loose clothing is painful to me when it's bunched up or resting on certain parts of my body, and the amount of pressure that my bras were putting on me due to the size/weight of my breasts was overwhelming, and nothing helped. I finally switched to just wearing cheap crop-top style bras for a while, because they were loose and almost didn't hurt, while supporting just enough to be acceptable in public. I did get a reduction last summer, and my new size of a DD is far better, and it really helps that they're perky enough to support themselves and put minimal pressure on my bras, and thus me. I can also get away with going braless a bit more now, which is lovely.

I don't think that this is even an issue that most women have, honestly. I'm just pretty much in pain whenever I have clothes on, so I avoid them as much as possible. I opt for bralets when I can get away with them, though I do have a decent selection of actual bras for when I need them, but I don't wear those unless it's necessary.

I should have said that I was wearing that large a band size not because it fit, but because it was the only way to get the cups to be big enough at the time and not be too uncomfortable with the other weight gain issues and swelling from the steroids. I would do "surgery" on the bras to get the bands to fit and add padding on the band, too. I just had a weird side effect from being on steroids for so long and it made me VERY sensitive and my skin couldn't grow fast enough to accommodate the enlargement and was tearing in really wide stretchmarks - 1-2" wide. I was miserable and the breasts were down to my navel without support! I hurt so much that bras and any pressure from underpants or clothes was so painful and it also made me itch like crazy. So I would scratch and then the skin would tear more, right under the surface. So, since I was so sick at this time, I wasn't able to go look for bras and I would try whatever I could get mail order (this was before the Internet when it started and then I gave up and mainly didn't wear bras because I was inside in bed most of the time). I eventually convinced my parents to pay for an expensive bra, but I don't remember the band size for that, just that the cup was H in one style and I in another. I had constant rashes under my breasts that would hurt and bleed, it was awful. But, I never realized how much the breast weight was affecting me until after the reduction. I did know my pinky fingers were partially numb and I was slightly numb in my ring fingers. But after the reduction, I went for my Botox injections for my migraines and some of them were usually in my shoulders, back and my back neck. I didn't need any of them! I have never had them again there to this day. And until the Dr mentioned his surprise, I hadn't realized that my back used to hurt because the other pain so overshadowed it all. It's like living with really crazy sensitive teeth and then all the sudden not having them anymore. you are shocked that your previous reality wasn't normal. Anyway, I was reduced to a 38 D cup and I am now a 42 DD about 6 years later (or maybe 5, I forget exactly when i had it done, LOL! It's like there was before the reduction which I try to forget and then the much better after. )

@ dv8: LMAO, I never even heard of that site before, leave it to you to make me laugh for even this topic, not to mention offering Edeneve pizza and cheeseburgers, lol!

@ Edeneve: I can only say the particular steroids I was on for 4 or 5 years caused my body to act like I was pregnant in a way. I looked pregnant, even my gyno said I looked like I just had a baby -- you know, before everything bounces back? Not a good thing to hear with no baby to show for all of it! I was lucky in a way because my breast tissue was not naturally very dense, so my breasts weighed a lot less than they could have, but I never actually weighed them. I only know from the plastic surgeon how much the removed tissues weighed, but now I am thinking I am confusing the numbers because of surreptitous' breast weights. Maybe it was 6 pounds off each breast and not 3? See, this is where my current medication is messing with my memory, dammit. Well, it's one, or the other, hahaha. I figure at the rate they are growing now, I won't need another surgery before I croak, so that's good because it was a tough recovery for me. I've had over 45 surgeries in my life (I lost count at one point and had to start from the last I could remember, so that was #40. And I don't count stuff like oral surgeries I was knocked out for; I mean in a hospital type stuff.) and I can easily say this reduction was my "favorite" (of course, the others weren't elective, lol!).

@ SweetSaffron: It definitely sounds like you have a neurological disorder making you exquisitely sensitive to the slightest pressure on your skin. They have treatments for that, unfortunately, the ones I know of are painful and grueling and I personally would never do them unless forced to. In one, they try to desensitize you by rubbing sand into your skin, oww! The problem is, some people don't desensitize as they "should" and I am one of them, so honey, I feel your pain, even if not the exact same pain. I hope you get some relief because life is too damn short to be suffering all the time!
