That was my size too. But a D-cup with a 40 band is considered normal. A D-cup with a 34 band is not. Not even with a 36 band. Even a C-cup with a 34 is hard to find, at least in the cheapie section...
My biggest issues with bras is that I'm allergic to acrylic, and the fibre content labels always read "Exclusive of trimmings". Which means if there's any acrylic in the thread, the elastic, the lace, I'm in trouble. Especially because you normally can't return them, and I can't always tell in the dressing room, although I'm getting pretty good at it. I need about 15 minutes in a bra before I know, and who wants to sit 15 minutes in each bra in a dressing room? So once I find a bra that works, I keep buying it. The ones that worked don't go down to my new sizes. And it really, really burns me to have to chuck an expensive bra after wearing it for 15 minutes. One of my new ones is causing minor issues. *sigh* Thread. That's the hardest to spot. Okay, it's impossible. So this whole thing psychs me out a little.

More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
