I’ve been a B cup most of my life (and a C up only recently) and Victoria’s Secret has never gotten my sizing right either. Their sizing may work for the bras they carry (I don’t know as I haven’t purchased a Victoria’s Secret bra in ages) but they’re really not generalizable to any other brand.
Hi lovely..thanks for writing!
While I don’t make a practice of bashing other lingerie businesses, I would highly recommend that you get another bra fitting at a different lingerie boutique (preferable one that carries a range of brands) before going with the size Victoria’s Secret has put you in. They’re not known for using the most reliable sizing method, and when you factor in how size can vary across brands (for example, you may still be a B cup in one brand, but a C cup in another)…well, I really wouldn’t take their sizing recommendation as gospel.
Best of luck with your lingerie shopping though! And I’m glad you like the sales post. :)
Now I’m grinning like an idgit.
Thank you so much for the kind words. :-D

- Anything smaller than a C cup: must be pre-pubescent. Ugly patterns, and colours. Lots of animals and stripes.
- C to D cup: A woman! Pretty lacy things, nice patterns, large variety.
- Anything over a D cup: Beige. Lots and lots of beige.
