  • what is the average bra size ?

    what is the average bra size ? thanks

  • Ehh...I do not think anyone would know an exact average. But thanks to the popularity of breast augmentation it is likely safe to say that the average size is larger than what it was a few decades ago.
    There are those who believe that dictionaries should not merely reflect the times but also protect English from the mindless assaults of the trendy.


    • Apparently most women wear the wrong size too. Depending on the manufacturer you can have several different sizes that fit about the same in the drawer.


      • Oh that last post is so true. I have several Olga 40 Ds which I love and a Laine Bryant brand that's a 40 DD. Both fit just fine but I would have never known without trying them on. You are taking a chance if you just use tags alone.

          SO true. Drives me nuts. I always put off bra shopping because I know I'll have to spend a bunch of time trying stuff on. And sometimes if I get two different brands in two different sizes, the salesperson looks at me strangely and tries to explain that I'm doing it wrong.


          • I think the average bra size is 36B


            • According to the information available, here's how average breast size in America breaks down:

              •AA cup: 2%
              •A cup: 15%
              •B cup: 44%
              •C cup: 28%
              •D cup: 10%
              •DD cup: 1%

              I hope this helps! 72% of women have either a B or a C.

              From a man who hopes ladies will get over whatever they are feeling about their cup size.[/QUOTE]

              Oh dear this rules me out completely as am a 34E (UK Size) and I have been professionally fitted now for several years.

                  My experience with processed foods is that they are a likely cause for weight gain even if you are keeping your calories down. Weight gain and blood sugar...

                  BTW, have you ever tried raw cacao? It's what chocolate is made from. I've had the whole beans and the powder, but my favorite is the nibs.
