    I have a very narrow frame and normal sized boobs- I am a 28C. It's not a thing a lot of companies stock, sadly. It's rib cage + breast size that determines your cup....a 40+D or DD cup lady might not be all that big busted, whereas a 28DD would be the most painful thing in the world.
    I have a large rib cage and small breasts. I have never been able to find a bra that fits. I always have to wear sports bras.

      That's because most people are wearing the wrong size bra...they have no clue what a real D cup looks like. My SIL refused to wear bigger than a C cup because she "couldn't possibly" be that big. even though she was spilling out in all directions. I'm from a 34F to a 36H, depending on brand and style. You can't buy those in a department store. So women make do with incorrectly fitting store bras, instead of paying a little more and going to a proper lingerie store.

        I have the opposite problem. And I can never find a sports bra that fits.

          My niece at 15 or 16 was a 30H or 28I, and about 5'2". Poor thing thankfully got a reduction and now sits around a 30D. Its really hard for teenager who want to dress like everyone else, yet they cant shop in the same stores without looking like a porn star.

            It isn't the weight loss that took out your boobs, it was the breastfeeding. Fat is displaced by actual functional milk-making breast tissue, which deflates when not in use: Think average dairy animal, which, unfortunately, we are.

              I figured that might be one of the reasons.

                I recall being taught in antenatal class that it was the pregnancy hormones that were responsible. In other words, it was already too late. Our breasts would never be the same, whether we were to breastfeed or not. However, I know of no way to confirm or disprove this theory.

                  When you can't find a real bra that fits, the options are going braless, which isn't appropriate for most outfits (and I'm not quite that perky anymore), or being unable to wear anything low cut or similarly stylish.

                    you must be a hobbit, that's the smallest band size i've ever seen

                    i don't understand how a woman can so badly get her bra size wrong. i'm talking the women who have to go on television to get help. like women on infomercials. like having the straps slice into your flesh and the band sit under your neck and your breasts completely overflow out the side

                    i don't get it. maybe i just guessed right when i started buying bras, i don't know
                    beautiful
                    yeah you are

                    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

                      I'm working on a theory that breast size is somehow influenced by the lymphatic system. To be continued...

                      "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

                      In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

                        Not a hobbit. Petite. It's not THAT uncommon, most people just don't measure themselves properly!

                          I think most of it is genetic.
                          I worked with a woman (63) who told me hers still stood to attention, 3 kids breast fed, and a few years before she had to nurse her dyeing mother in her 80's and was just a little surprised the first time she bathed her, even though the rest of her body was falling apart, her breasts refused to budge, still perky and that was after breast feeding 8 children.

                          They were old school rural, so all full fat and real food, probably close to Weston A Price dietary type and hard work was the order of the day, every day, all laundry done by hand.

                            34 DD here. They are hard to find outside of department stores/lingerie shops. It's hard to wear the right size bra if you have a smaller band and DD and up cups. They just aren't in stores like WalMart and Target, which is probably why so many women have the wrong bra on.

                              I'm having a hard time believing you thought your breasts would just snap back to normal after pregnancy. lol

                              Breastfeeding causes some changes but pregnancy causes the most change in the breast tissue. This happens to women that dont' breastfeed. Your baby is just 10 months old. Give them time to rebuild a bit. They will never be the same but you'll likely get back to perfectly fine looking.

                                If you fall nicely into a department store bra range, then you're good to go. Sadly, alot of women don't, so they make do. And it's not pretty.
