There is a direct relation between bra and breast. The women choose the bra size according to the size of their breast. So, if the average bra size can be known, we can know the average breast size, right?
An average bra size is just a number. For example, 34DD is the average bra size in the United States. On the other hand, the average size in the United Kingdom is a little bit larger than found in the USA; it is 36DD. But the size is not the same, definitely. Naturally, this size can vary by the different counties. But is the size appropriate for you according to your age, height, and weight, is the important matter? There is no way to argue with this fact.
Anyway, in this content, we will try to know what is the average size and is its ideal size. At the same time, we will also know how to measure breast size. Just keep reading, you are going to know everything about bra size and all other important matters of this fact.
Average Breast Size by Age, Height, and Weight
You definitely know the average bra size is different from the different countries. Similarly, the average size of all aged women is also not the same. The average size of teenagers is one, and the average size of middle-age women is definitely a different one, and finally, the average size of menopausal women is not the same as the teenagers and middle-aged. But if you want to know the whole average, it is 34DD in America.
Age is definitely a fact for the breast size. You may have known the breast starts to develop when the age is 7. And the development lasts up to the last day of completing puberty. Usually, the last age of puberty is 14-17. Within the time the puberty is completed. And at the time, the complete development of breasts also occurs. That means the breast size is not the same during puberty as the development is not done yet.
After completing puberty, the size of the breast is also not fixed. Can you say why? Let me explain. Your height can increase up to the age of 25 because it is the last age of the epiphysis and diaphysis (Of long bone) to fuse together. On the other hand, your weight is not also fixed as it may increase or decrease anytime. The weight depends on the lifestyle and diet also. That means your BMI (BMI= Height in miter square/ weight in kg) is not always fixed. And you should know the breast size can vary according to your height and weight.
Then come to the point of the menopausal period. There have many studies done on the topic of breast size. And it is revealed that menopausal women wear a larger bra size than other women. After starting menopause, massive hormone changes have occurred in the body. And at the time, the body tends to gain weight day by day. Naturally, the breast also increases in size at the time. That is why usually the larger bra size is found in menopausal women. That means now it is cleared that the bra size of all ages is not the same and why.
What Is The Ideal Breast Size?
Of course, you may have a query on what is the average bra size in America by age, height & weight. But I think it is important to know the ideal breast size for the Americans. Do you agree?
Just a few years ago, some surveys were done on the topic what is the preferred breast size in America. In that survey, one thousand American was involved. Among them, 60% of men said that the girls having average size breasts are attractive to them. On the other side, 54% of women also express their interest in the average size breast. Similarly, about 50% of males and females also agreed that C cup is the ideal breast size for them.
It is a result of a statistic, and here about 50% of men’s and women’s opinion is expressed. It can vary to other people, obviously. On the other hand, the ideal size primarily depends on the size and shape of your body. Let’s see the following point.
What Is The Appropriate Size For My Body?
There is no perfect bra size in this universe that is perfect for all women. It is not possible also. But the size and shape of your body can say the appropriate size of your breast. The appropriate measurement is also not so easy without the help of a plastic surgeon or a gynecologist. Anyway, primarily four standard body shapes are found, and we express here the breast size that complements best to the different body shapes.
First of all, pear-shaped bodies, it is the common feature of female’s body structure. The hips are wide and but the waist is defined. Usually, the moderately sized breast complements best this body shape.
Secondly, apple-shaped bodies are also commonly found. This kind of woman usually has a broader lower body and waist. That means the lower portion is broad than the upper part. For these women, fuller and sizable breasts are suitable and help to balance the body shape’s proportion.
Thirdly, other types of women are found whose bodies are proportional to the upper and lower portion. The body shape is known as hourglass-shaped bodies, and for the small to medium size, breasts are ideal.
Finally, rectangle-shaped bodies are also mostly found. And these types of women have the uniform upper part and a lower portion also. The fuller size breasts are ideal for these kinds of women and make them curvy.
Determining the Bra Size
Determining breast size is very important. You become surprised to know more than 80% of women wear the wrong size bra according to their chest and breast size. Yes, this is true, and this is the reality. I think you don’t go wrong. For the accurate measurement, you can take help from your gynecologist or the certified plastic surgeon. They can really help you. You can also try it home yourself. Before going to the measurement, you should confirm you are getting the right number by measuring your body perfectly.
To measure the bra size, you need to know the following measurements.
- Length across the breasts.
- Length across the torso.
- And the overall breast volume.
To measure the length of the breast, you have to measure it when the breasts are fullest. Just take a measurement tape and place it over the nipple and around the bust. Just write the number on a notepad.
Then measure the length of the torso (Band). Take the measurement tape and wrap around your body just below the bust. And note this number.
Now you have to measure the cup size. To find out this number, you don’t need to measure your breast again. Just subtract band number from the bust, and you will get the number of cum volume.
How to Calculate
Before going to the calculation, you need to know the symbol of the cup. The cup symbol is given below.
|1’’= A||5’’= DD|
|2’’= B||6’’= DDD & F|
|3’’= C||7’’= G|
|4’’= D||8’’= H|
I think you can understand nothing the table of content, right? Let me explain.
Just think you measure the bust 45’’ and band for 40’’. Now get the cup size by subtracting the band from the bust. So the cup size is 45’’-40’’, I mean 5’’. Can you understand it? So, your cup size = Your bust size – Your band size.
That means your bra size 40DD. I don’t know other ways that are simpler than this.
Men and women believe the perfect size breast can increase the attractiveness of the body of the women. And yes, it is very much true. What is the other average bra size is not so much important than having the perfect size breast or your own? You can also decrease and increase the size of your breasts as the size and shape you want to look at it. But care for the breast is necessary. Wearing the right size bra according to your breast size is also a care for your breast. Did you know it?
