Why aren’t all 34AA cups created equal?
19 Saturday May 2007
Bra shopping can be such a trying and tiring experience sometimes that we often wish, along with our customers, that an AA cup is an AA cup is an AA cup. But, alas, it’s not so. We liken bra shopping to jean shopping where you might be a size 27 in some jeans but then a 26 in another and possibly a 28 in another (yes, it’s enough to make you run screaming out of the dressing room!).
Like other types of clothing, bra sizing varies by brand and, even within one brand, an AA bra cup will vary depending on the fabric used, the cut of the bra and what sizing scale was used for the bra. Too many moving parts and it seems the AA cup is one of the more difficult cups to get right. A 34AA bra style in a T-shirt bra by one brand may fit you perfectly but then the same brand’s push-up may not.
What to do? We wish we could offer a one size fit all solution to this AA cup dilemma but, as with jeans, a bra, no matter what size, fits each individual differently and the best thing to do is to try it on. As much as possible, we do try to offer Fit Tips on the product pages to provide customers with sizing information that is not apparent from just looking at the photo.
Feel free to contact us if you ever have any questions about how a bra might fit before you buy it. You can even call us toll free at 1 800 798 8354.
