I thought I was a 32DD/34DD---> turns out I'm 30G ish.

From what I can tell, the following ... is my shape: FOB, projected, close-set breasts, centre-full, narrow roots with average root height. Of note: I currently measure 30G/G on the ABTF calculator, it varies daily though.

In Feb 2021, I had a modest weight loss (about 8 pds), and I googled various dress-size/bra-size calculators: I stumbled upon omincalculator for dress and bra size. I didn't think their bra-size calculator was accurate (note: I realize now they use the outdated +4 method), so I kept googling. Lo and behold, I came across ABTF calculator, and thus began my journey to find ABTF!

I've found that Polish bras work best for me. It took me about two months, lots of research, and 21 try-ons (this was all done online) before I truly found ABTF: currently I wear 70HH in Comexim Padded Plunge/65G in Ewa Michalak BM. As Happy2BraShop suggests, when buying Comexim from Breakout Bras, it's best to purchase two sizes of the same bra to compare, #efficient.

I love online bra shopping! Sometimes you will consider a bra that you see online on a model, that you wouldn't consider on a hanger!
My favourite places to bra shop: BreakoutBras.com, ShopCustomCurves.ca, Comexim.pl, EwaMichalak.pl, LevanaBratique.com, Two Canadian stores that sell Polish bras: BroadLingerie.com, and SFYS.com

Tip for using Bratabase: find your "boob twins" on bratabase, meaning, people who have a similar breast shape and frame to you (not necessarily the exact same size, but close...) and then look up what brands and styles work for them! This will save you time, $, and the hassle with online bra purchase returns : )

Another strategy: find someone near your bra size/breast shape who is a bra blogger, read her reviews and consider purchasing what works for her. Some bra blogs I read: CurvyWordy, BrasIHate, ButterflyCollectionLingerie.blogspot.com, HugsForYourJugs, VenusianGlow, BrasAndBodyImage, TheBreastLife, SophisticatedNotion.

Favourite YouTube channels on Bra Fit & Design: A Sophisticated Pair https://www.youtube.com/user/ASophisticatedPair, and the Bra Addict.

Also, I find Her Room Youtube videos to be helpful, but I'm not sure I would order from their website, as I've heard of people having difficulties w refunds https://www.youtube.com/user/herroom

Happy boobs, happy life is kind of my mantra! Seriously though, a well-fitting bra can improve one's quality of life!
