what do bra cup sizes mean?
Guide to DD+ Cup Bras
DD cup bras aren’t as big as it gets, given what pop culture would lead you to believe. Millions of women actually wear DD cup bras all the way up to N cups. Your bigger breasts are perfectly normal, and they look fantastic in the right size bra! Although DD cup bras are available in a wide variety of styles, you can find the most flattering styles for your body with a little bra knowledge.

What is the size of a DD cup?
Choosing your bra size is the third step. Your bra size is simply balancing the size of your body with the size of your cup. So if your body size is 12 and the size of your cup is Cup DD, your bra size is 12 DD! Great.
Are the DD cups really big?
The breast size of 5 inches larger than the band size is a DD and the breast size of 6 inches larger than the band size is a DDD. Some European brands have E and F cups.

With larger cup sizes, both molded cups and seamed cups of fabric work well, so the type of bra cups you choose is a matter of personal preference. Most women with larger breasts prefer seamed bra cups as they are perfect for forming the seams. Full coverage bras and balcony bras are the most common styles for DD+ bras. A balcony bra is halfway between full coverage and half cup, so without giving up protection, you have less coverage.
Balcony bras are great for small women with bigger bust because under the arms will not poke the shorter underwire. I always advocate having at least one minimizer bra for women with larger breasts. Another style of the bra makes the breasts appear smaller, which is helpful on tops and clothing that is a little too snug on the chest under the button down. The type of bra that I recommend to DD plus women is a sleep bra that relieves the pain of moving your breasts while you are sleeping.

A specialist who specializes in hard to find sizes is to match the number one most important bra tip for women above a D cup properly. The bra band should be snug in the right size to raise the breasts until they are halfway between your elbow and your shoulder. By poking or digging into your breast tissue, the underwire will fully cover your breast.

The cup is supposed to lay flat against the bust without a bulge from the top. Ideally, the bra band between your breasts should sit flat against the chest, although some types of bras may not be able to do so. It’s time to try a new size if it doesn’t feel like your bra! My Bra Fit Hot Line is a fantastic resource for women who don’t live close to a good bra shop.
Is the D cup considered to be big?
However, with the standard 32 band size, the DDD is what I would consider being large. The A-C or even the D cup could be considered small, and the D-DD cup is medium. Go where you want from that and the ratios to other band sizes, 34B is larger than 32C but smaller than 32D.
