There seems not to be one set formula for measuring for bras-- one tutorial might say add 4 inches to find band size, another might say 5, another might give different numbers to add based on what you measure. . . it's all very confusing!  And then to find the cup size, do I use the size difference between the bust and chest, or bust and band size?  Blee -_- .  I was in a store yesterday and they had bras on sale, so I was trying to figure what size to buy.  If I did it right, I should be a 38B now, so that's the size I bought, but if I don't arrange things just right, er, they kinda try to ooze out a little -_- . . .  not sure how to put it any more delicately than that.  But the 38C I got last time is a little big.  Bleh, maybe I'm between sizes or something?

More awesome than a manatee!

I am pretty sure there are good directions on (where I buy all of my bras--Bali). Those work for me.

I am also sure that size varies from store to store. VS doesn't provide enough support for me no matter what size I am fwiw (I know they will measure you).

The ladies in Macy's bra dept will also measure you accurately.

Happy New Year to you!
