Does anyone else in a weird size range get recommendations that are extremely off?

I just added some more information about some bras, and added my current measurements. I decided to see if I'd get any recommendations. I usually fit best in 36L/LL and sister sizes, although after some hormonal fluctuations and weight gain my bras haven't been fitting the same and I suspect I've gone up another size. My recommendations came back suggesting 40Q-Q which is waaaaay off. Is it having a hard time recommending things because I'm in an uncommon size range and try so many different sizes of bras due to the lack of options in my size range?

  • Yes, my recommendations are wonky. I think it is because, when I first set up my measurements and lists etc., I messed up some of the numbers somehow that I typed in. :\ So now my recommendations list has 0 recommendations, and the estimated overall sizes contains @40:9 (correct range) to @46:7 which is way off. Their recommendation algorithm is sensitive -- one number wrong and BANG! your recommendations are all over the place. Maybe the admin will contribute to this thread and give us some advice.

  • When there are no other people with similar measurements to you the system spits out junk information. However, it does say that its recommendations are based on no data in your measurements. I believe all of the large band large cup data is like this because there are so few of us here in comparison to the small band large cup crowd.
