If bra shopping is one of the greatest banes of your existence, this post was written for you! If you leave stores empty-handed because your bra size isn’t between 32AA and 40DD, make yourself at home…
My mother, who never has to leave a store empty-handed, tried taking me bra shopping in 2014. She ended up so frustrated that she actually bribed me to let her leave. We still laugh about it to this day.
Everybody deserves supportive bras, not just those within a narrow size range, so I made a list of brands that offer bras in 22-30-bands. It encompasses 22-60 bands, AA-N (UK) cups and custom sizes too.
This list includes UK, US and EU sizing systems as well as US Dollars, British Pounds and Polish złoty. (Busty Resources has a great explanation of the various sizing systems.) Without any further ado…
