I've wanted to make this post for a while partly because a most women really are wearing the wrong bra size and I'd love to help add some comfort to their life, and b if we're stuck seeing boobs every few posts on Imgur, can we at least describe them accurately? Yes, they're big and sexy. No, that doesn't mean they are DDs. This is how most of us understand bra sizes. That's not how it works at all.

Do you think you know what a D cup looks like? So you may be shocked to know that in the grand scheme of things, a D cup is actually on the smaller side. How big are they really? What do we mean by this? That people wearing a 32D, a 36D, and a 40D would all have very differently-sized breasts. To understand why, you first need to understand how bra sizes are calculated.
Using a tape measure, take a snug measurement around the rib cage directly under the bust. If you measure under 36", add 4 inches if the measurement is even; add 5 inches if the measurement is odd. If you measure 36" or higher, add 2 inches if the measurement is even and 3 inches if the measurement is odd.
After working for hours I've created two different charts. One based on everyday household objects and the other on everyday household celebrities. Why did I do this? I don't know maybe because it was fun.
