As someone in her mid-thirties, who worked as a bra fitter in the 1990s (and works as a daywear/sleepwear designer now), I absolutely agree!


When I was a teen, I wore a 34D. My underbust measurement was 29″ and my full bust measurement was 37 1/2″. My band sat straight and parallel to the floor, the cups did not spill over and the wires tacked flat against my ribcage. My bras fit well, looked good, and caused me no trouble.


20 years later, my underbust measurement is 33″ and my overbust measurement is 41″ I now wear a 34F. My back is 4″ larger than it was 20 years ago, and yet my band size has not changed.


Something strange is going on in the world of foundations.
