What does it mean to wear D or DD cups?

Do you remember the note about G and GG cups? I wanted to show you then what G and GG breasts really look like and bust the myths related with the perceived largeness of this cup. Today I want to do the same – but this time I’d like you to have a look at real D and DD cups. Thinking about this cup most people have a picture of big breasts in their mind. If we (I mean – the Lobbyists) try to convince a woman who wears a 34(70)B that her real size is 30D or 30DD, she’s usually shocked to hear that and voices a lot of protests, main of them being “I don’t have such big boobs”.  It’s not only women who misperceive the bra sizes, some bra manufectures are also of an opinion that D and DD cups belong to big boobs and that’s why it’s not necessary to produce bigger ones (as bigger ones can only be worn by some freaks of nature).

It’s high time to finish with this attitude. These harmul stereotypes make millions of women  in the world wear incorrect bra sizes. Ladies (and gentelmen – if any bothers to read this blog) – I’m giving you “Real D and DD busts” in correctly fitted bras- a collage made from photos that readers of Balkonetka post on that blog.  See for yourseves: 

Are these really big breasts????

As you can see, these are slim girls with relatively small breasts. This colage has nothing to do with common belief about “dong” or “double dong” (from that stupid video from you tube that I posted in the note about G and GG cups)…

You may feel suprised though that there are only 28,30,32 and a few 34 bands on the photograph… Well, I agree bands higher than 34 (and also 28Ds) are not really represented here, mainly due to the fact that few wearers of 36 from Balkonetka haven’t sent their consent to use their photographs for this action. I’m still waiting for them to agree, then I’ll be able to replace the collage and show you a more represantative sample.

So far I would like to thank the following girls: alex24, elftherini, magdus, anulla1974, migotka, agugabi, espera_nza, amytyst89, sellenka, minimka, tigga, nivalis, gosha, ava.adore, sunako, sencha, jantarrka and minimka.

  1. It’s so good to meet another lobbyist!! I was so obsessed I have opened my own boutique to spread the word!

  2. Why I have never seen that project?? Have you linked it somewhere in the polish web-bra-community? :)

  3. I’ve read about the plans, but I’ve never seen it ready! Thanks:)

  4. Thanks for posting this! It gives the public a clearer idea of what well-fitted sizes look like. Likewise, I’m a 28C, and am very flatchested. Most people would not think of a ‘C’ cup as flat. My mom was surprised to hear that that’s my real size. “Is that a real size? I thought you’re a AA!”

    I also recently saw an infomercial for the so-called “Genie Bra”, to provide women with support and comfort from uncomfortable regular bras. They come in sizes like S, M, L, etc. But fact is, those women weren’t wearing the right sizes to begin with! The Genie Bra would only mask their real fitting issues. Here’s their video on the “DD Challenge”.

    I think those women really should be wearing F cups or larger.

  7. It is very difficult to find a 30 D or DD bra. Most stores, esp boutiques have 40+ for those sized bras. Frustrating for someone who knows her proper size, but can’t find it in “pretty” styles for a reasonable price (not cheap, I don’t want cheap, but reasonable, please)!

  8. I am a natural 32D, and I’ve always felt slightly uncomfortable with this. My boobs are average to slightly above average, which does not fit the stereotype of what a D-cup is. Even though I’ve been fitted by many different people, I always privately thought they were getting the measurements wrong, lol. It’s VERY reassuring to know that my boobs are totally normal. Thank you. This is a great project.

    • Ugh yeah I really need to show this to my parents. They are STILL thinking that a “D” cup is Christina Hendricks size, but I’d only be a 28D…. Grr they can be so annoying sometimes.

  9. An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a co-worker who was conducting a little research on this. And he actually bought me dinner simply because I stumbled upon it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending some time to discuss this issue here on your blog.

  10. Thing is, if you’re skinny, a D cup isn’t that large. A 28D is essentially the same cup size as a 30C, 32B, or 34A. Same volume.

  11. I was wearing 36C for years. I got measured by one of these “Bra Whisperer” stores (they sell expensive but really nice European bras), and they came up with 32DD. They really do look much better.

  12. Im soooo flat chested. right now I have 34A bras (my mom will not buy me bigger because she thinks I am too tiny). Well the 34A….Yeah… the band rides up, my boobs are getting squished the straps fall off constantly (I am very short mind you) and I can not even wear nice shirts anymore because i look weird and squished! My mom claims to be a 34B(shes worn that size sinse she was 15), but i really do not think shes that small. my underbust measurement is (in inches) 29, and mt across measurement is 32…. I am really confused, any help?

  13. I just found I’m a 36F I was wearing 34C, 36C’s and 38B’s I was wondering, my boobs don’t look that huge!? Any help?

  14. Ok, I actually DO have large breasts and I wear a 34D. If these girls are D cups, I would be a G. At which point I would feel very self conscious and disempowered by the idea that small breasts are now a D cup. Not cool.

    • Hmmm, if your breasts are really larger then the ones on the photos and you have a narrow frame, then you’re doing yourself a big disservice wearing a 34D. Nobody really sees what bra size you wear unless you tell them. Do I have to say that wearing a well fitted 32F/FF/G, whatever will do wonders for your whole figure and will make it seem optically lighter? It’s like a diet without actually dieting. Not to mention the fact that it’s much more comfortable.

      Welcome to the real world where bra cups over D are completely normal and G cup is considered a middle of size chart (no matter the band size) – just average. Big breasts are those that need J/JJ/K/KK whereabouts (again, no matter the band size, even a 28K may look really big on a thin woman who’s at the same time tiny.

  15. I walked into a dressing room today wearing a 32b bra. After a fitting I left with three 30d bras. I was stunned – even though I know my correct bra size isn’t considered large. But, after seeing this website, I realize it is correct. And, my new bras fit well in the band and my entire boob fits in the cup without underwires poking me. Much more comfortable!

  17. Heh I must say I am one of those mis-informed who considered D or DD cup breasts quite big and this post made it much clearer for me. (I am a man btw) It is quite a shock actually because originally i would consider (and probably most of men audience) most of those ladies on screenshot to be A cup, maybe some of them closer to B but still. Then I looked on similar screenshot but for G/GG sizes (http://img237.imageshack.us/img237/3075/akcjanagfina.jpg) and those are what I originally considered C-D… :D For example that lady in red-dotted bra in 4th line. I would give her high C or D before I read this post.. so thx for correcting my believes even though its not really that essential for me as it is for ladies here but it is still good to know how it really is.
