Even the existence of a size like 36F or 34F kind of shows how screwed up bra sizing is. For a true F cup, in order to fit all of that mammary tissue into 36 inches of bust measurement, a woman would have to have the rib cage of a boa constrictor. I usually wear a 36B, but I know for a fact my bust is 39 inches. Even considering that bras are not sized in one-inch band increments, being that far off is ridiculous. I suspect you are both getting correct advice about what the band and cup size *should* be, based on the way bras are supposed to be sized, but size inflation strikes again resulting in nonsensical sizes like 34F (really?). (Back when I had a true 34 inch bust, I was wearing an A cup, and had a pretty typical rib cage/chest size for a small woman.)
