Breasts come in all shapes and sizes. Some are round, but others are shaped like teardrops. Some are perkier than others. Some are bigger than others. Some are almost symmetrical. Some are definitely not almost symmetrical. The point we’re trying to make here is that breasts come in all shapes and sizes. Even women who think they have abnormal breasts actually have normal breasts. That’s the beauty of our bodies — they are all meant to be different. No two are ever meant to be the same. A bit like fingerprints.
Do you know what your breasts look and feel like? Could you pick your breasts out of a line-up? Do you know how big your breasts really are? Are you even buying the right bra size?
These are all very important questions that you should know the answers to, and if you don’t, it’s time to find out. If you don’t know what bra size you are meant to be wearing, go and get yourself measured. We actually advise getting measured in a few different places before making a final decision. Nine times out of ten, you will be different sizes across different stores.
The 36d bra size is one desired by many women who choose to go under the knife. Carmen Electra, for example, went to a 36D/34DD bra size, up from her original B-cup. Although she reported being happy NOT to have to wear padded bras any longer, she has gone ‘on the record’ to state she wished she’d left her body alone. Before you go opting for surgical enhancements, you should try to be happy with what you have. And, before you think you are ‘weird’ when you compare yourself to everybody else, you’re not. We all have things about our breasts that we don’t like. Some women want bigger breasts. Others would much prefer to have their larger breasts reduced so that they are smaller and come with less back pain and bra expenditure. Some of us have inverted nipples or one breast that is considerably larger than the other. In fact, it is very natural to have one breast bigger than the bother. In many women, it is the left breast that is bigger.
There are a number of celebrities who have reportedly gone under the knife but have either confirmed or denied rumors of breast enhancement surgery. Other celebrities, on the other hand, have come out quite publicly to talk about their plastic surgery choices, particularly with ‘bodged-up’ surgery that often requires more surgery in order to repair the initial mistakes. This is why you must be 100% sure that plastic surgery is the right answer for you before you choose to go under the knife.
There are a number of risks that you will need to think about. Heidi Montag, for example, went under the knife when she was very young, taking her all the way up to an F cup. She then decided to go under the knife to take herself back down to a more natural C/D cup. You will need to think about whether or not you want a natural look. The larger you decide to go in the cup size, the more unnatural your enlarged breasts will appear to be.
Dressing in a fuller bust shouldn’t be a problem. It all very much depends on how you want to work with your breasts too — whether you’d like to maximise their potential or minimise the bust-factor look.
Having a fuller bust works in your favor for certain outfits, but whatever you decide to wear, make sure that you keep things simple around the bust area. The busier and fussier the area is, the most you are drawing attention to it. By keeping your lines sleek and simple, you’ll be taking the attention away from your bust and diverting it elsewhere. It’s a great trick for when you’d much rather someone spoke to your face, rather than your chest. (Although there will still always be someone … It’s just not right!)
Scoop and v-neck style shirts and dresses are a great choice for the bustier lady, but really heavy and fussy necklines that, once again, draw attention to the bust area are probably a bad idea. Crew necks, polo necks, cowl, and square necks are all considered to bring attention *TO* the bust, so are ones to avoid if you’d like to minimise them, rather than maximise.
One final tip to take into account when looking at dressing well with a fuller bust, go for something really well tailored, and consider having items customised to fit your shape if you want them to really work for you. Really good tailoring can work really well on busty ladies, but it can also look really unflattering if the cut just isn’t right.
All bra sizes come with a ‘sister size’, which basically means, at a push, you could get away with wearing different sizes without paying the price too much. You could wear a smaller back measurement at the loosest clip, for example.
If you are a 36D bra size (36d bust size, 36 d cup size, 36 d boobs, etc.) you will also find that you can comfortably wear a 34DD bra. You may also find that you can wear a 38C too. We would always recommend wearing the RIGHT size bra, but if you were to try these on, you’d probably find they fit. Just in case you can’t ever find the size you need on the shelf. Here are some bra cup sizes pictures, pictures of different breas sizes, and celebrities with 36d bra size.
