I am curious about other people's perspectives... Large and small can be somewhat subjective, and bra fitting and sizing is so bizarre (in the aggregate) that even people who are more "enlightened" don't agree on what the lines are. Maybe I have been spending too much time in bra fitting land, but a lot of people post reviews of bras ... that are in the upper range of sizes, and I look at the pictures and think, "they don't look *that* big". I look at mine and generally think, "they don't look *that* big". To be fair, I do not think an FF cup would actually be that big compared to the average, if everyone were in a properly fitted bra.
This is not meant to be judgmental, breast size obviously has no moral value whatsoever. It just strikes me as a bit odd that lately, rather large cups on smaller bands just don't seem objectively big to me. I know intellectually that an H cup on a bigger band is larger than an H cup on a smaller band, but it seems like they should look the same in terms of proportion, or even that the smaller band H cup should look bigger if it is on a slimmer frame.
Has your idea of big vs. small changed as you learn(ed) more about bras? As your body changes or changed? Is your idea of it based on your own size? (People often think of their various traits as "the average", regardless of where they actually lie on a spectrum.)
