Psychology in bra sizing

How often have we refused to believe that we are a particular size, be overly critical about bras in sizes we don’t identify with. For a long time I kept thinking I was somewhere between an A or B cup, until I discovered the world of small bands, bigger cups. I then started trying 30Ds, 30DDs, 30Es, 28E F FF etc. I started to keep wanting a bigger cup size. Any sign of quadding or shape mismatch made me immediately assume that I might need a bigger cup size. I was deeply unhappy about how my boobs looked and bra sizes gave me a kind of validation. Im not sure if it’s signs of body dysmorphia or something else. But I sure do know it’s not exactly healthy. I’m not sure if anyone else have had such an experience. Would like to hear from y’all!!

  • Ditto, from the other side of the size spectrum... It was bewildering, frustrating. I was wearing all kinds of weird sizes before learning about "the world of small bands, bigger cups." Now happy at 40:9.

  • Yep, I relate to this. Always tried to force myself to fit into as big a cup and as small a band as possible. I still have the tendency, but it’s easier to fight the irrationality now that I’m aware of it.
