Talking Measuring system!

http://www.brasizecalculator.tk/

This was a great site for measuring! I'll take a 32H in US sizes! Even if this isn't correct according to all bra size measuring systems, it is still fun!

Actually that is pretty much correct. I plugged in my measurements and got my correct bra size of 28G. So with a 32H US bra size that would make you a 32FF UK bra size. Why don't you believe it?

It says I am a 30G UK (30I US)

This is my favorite and it seems to be spot on I uploaded a bra pic of proof because I doubted reality. lol

When I put in my measurements to lindasonline, it says I am a 32C (I wish)...I measure 29 bust and 32 over the nipples...shouldn't that be a 30B?

The original post, I checked and it showed I would be a 30B.

I do believe it. I was saying that not all measuring/sizing guide lines are the same. For instance I measure at a 32DD at Victoria Secret but a 30H according to this particular system. No system is universal but I like this one the best!

This is the correct way to measure yourself. Victoria's Secret does not fit anyone correctly. They add 4/5 inches to your band size which you should never do. If your underbust measures odd you would just try both of the nearest bandsizes. So say you measure 29 inches around your under-bust you would try both the 28 & 30 band. Victoria's Secret is notorious for their poor fitting methods.

http://busts4justice.com/2012/03/10/...torias-secret/

Signs of a good fit is the band is level and the band is not riding up as the band provides 85% of your support. So adding inches your underbust measurement makes no sense. Nor does measuring over your bust to find your band size as the band sits under your bust not over it. VS is guilty of measuring over the bust and than adding inches on top of that. The gore aka the center part of your bra should sit flush against your sternum. The cups should completely encase all of your tissue. So swoop and scoop all tissue inside.

No you should be a 30C or 32B. There is three inches difference between your under bust measurement and bust. Since every inch counts as a cupsize you would be a 30C.
