I've seen a couple of responses to this that showed up in email, but have not shown up here...? Anyway, I want to note that I stand corrected. The bra sizing method I learned back in the 80s doesn't seem to be much in use anymore. Current methods of bra sizing are wildly inconsistent. I tried a few online bra size calculators based on my own measurements, and came up with wildly disparate sizes, most of them much too big for me.
