Anyone know know what brand the v-neck one is so I can figure out what size I should get?
Edit: Hmm I think I figured it out.

This girl is too pretty to damage her breast tissue in an ill-fitting bra.  Look at that quad boob! Oww. She needs to get her ass over to http://bustyresources.wikia.com and http://reddit.com/r/abrathatfits to find her some good bras.

Everything you know about bras is wrong.

I am on a mission. A mission that started about 30 minutes ago. (well, 30 minutes before I first typing this out. Now it’s more like hours :p)

You often hear that anywhere from 75% to 80% or even 90% of woman are wearing the wrong bra size. I know I have several times, but never looking into it or thought about it. It was just something I heard and didn’t really care about.

So, just out of the blue yesterday, I decided to look online about measuring your bra size. The way I found my current size was basically trial and error at the store about 6 years ago. Since then, I have had periods of time where my back would hurt for no apparent reason. On occasion, I will also get this real uncomfortable feeling that’s hard to explain around my chest area and back, which I had come to attribute to wearing my bra too long. Whether or not this is actually the case, I do not know, but since my world has been turned upside-down about bras and bra sizes, I’m now thinking it has more to do with an improperly fitting bra.

If you’ve spent lots of time on the internet, you’ve probably seen pictures like this that perpetuate the idea that the larger the cup size, the larger amount of breast tissue. This is wrong. You need to erase that from your mind right now. Do it and your boobs will thank you.

An analogy: When looking for a pair of pants, would you just use the inseam size to find a properly fitting pair? Or would you use both the inseam and the waist size? That is like bras. The band size and cup size are two separate ‘numbers’, but together, they inform you of what size bra will fit you properly.

The cup size is relative to the band size.

Say it again with me: The Cup Size Is Relative To The Band Size. Write it on a piece of paper. Ten times. And then eat the paper if you have to. Drill this into your brain. Draw this on your brain.

For example: 40A, 38B, 36C, 34D, 32DD(US)/32E(UK), 30DDD/E(US)/30F(UK), 28F(US)/28FF(UK), and so on, are all the same cup size (in terms of volume). Larger cup sizes do not automatically mean the breasts are bigger. The only difference here is the band size. The band size is reliant on how narrow or wide your rib cage is. The band size can only properly be measured by taking a soft measuring tape, and wrapping it snugly around your torso at the base of where your breast stops and the skin on your stomach area begins.(aka, the underbust) No adding 4 inches, or wrapping the measuring tape diagonally, or vertically, or finding the square root of the number you get and multiplying it by 8 or any other ridiculous ways you’ll see people telling you do to. Just take the tape measure, wrap it around your underbust so it’s even across your body (and snug, remember!), and record that number. If it isn’t an exact, round to the closest even number. If it’s equally in the middle, round down first.

The reason you want to round down is because, when you get a new bra, you want to have it fit while hooked on the very first set of hooks. Through use, the band will begin to loosen and therefore lack proper support, and when that happens, you want to be able to hook it closer and closer as needed. 

*Note* If you have a bra that only fits tight enough when hooked on the last set of hooks, you need to go down a band size, or possibly even two or three or more. Same goes for if the band rides upwards on your back, instead of laying even with the front. And if you go down in band size, you usually need to go up in cup size as well to compensate for the change. Refer to the “Sister Sizes” charts.

Now, for some reason, most bra manufacturers in the United States seem to not want anyone to be above a D cup. You often see double D cups, triple D cups, quadruple D cups. A large number of chains will only carry up to D cups, and anything beyond that, you usually have to check stores that cater to plus-sized women, or specialty lingerie stores. Or, if they do carry cups above D, they’re typically not very flattering (if you’re going for that), or don’t offer the kind of support and shape you are looking for in a bra. Thankfully, some manufacturers seem to be going the way of the UK, as the bra sizes there almost always follow the same standard, instead of the free-for-all in naming sizes that is from US brands. Unfortunately, they are highly outnumbered, so many woman take to buying bras from UK brands instead.

Now, it’s hard to mess up a bust measurement, but it is possible as there is so much bad information out there. Follow the directions in this post to find what your true size is. Remember, the cup size is relative to the band size!

The bra size calculator on A Sophisticated Pair’s website is an excellent as far as online calculators go. Use it as a tool to find your proper size. But nothing can compare from going into a store and trying on sizes until you find the one that doesn’t fit “good”, or “ok”, or “the best so far”, or “pretty good”, but one that fits AMAZINGLY.

THE CUP SIZE IS RELATIVE TO THE BAND SIZE

On may 8th North Carolinians will head to the polls and vote on Amendment One, arguably the most controversial subject to hit the state’s political scene in years. There have been many events in the port city to raise awareness about upcoming issues, and soon many in the community will gather for a night of live music, proudly “Standing on the Side of Love.”

If passed, the legislation will amend the state constitution and define marriage as only between one man and one woman. The problem is how this affects all domestic partnerships and families, regardless of gender.

The State House and Senate approved the measure for a public vote in September. Since, a political firestorm has ravaged the state. Some feel the measure is redundant since same-sex marriage is already illegal in NC, and the amendment’s ambiguity concerns others. Conservative supporters feel the measure is necessary in order to preserve traditional marriage. Currently, NC is the only state in the southeast without a constitutional ban on gay marriage.
