I wanted to update my comment. It would be hard to size someone for a 32F based on the bra sizing method I learned in the 80's, but that doesn't seem to be much in use anymore. There are at least 3 alternate methods, all of which seem to yield too-large a size. I do still think that needing to purchase sizes like 32F is somehow an artifact of vanity sizing--things having been manipulated so that the "average" 36C bra has cups that the average woman could wear on her head. It doesn't really matter how sizes are figured, as long as it's consistent, which it's not. *sigh*

The nice thing here is that this discussion prompted me to re-evaluate the size I was wearing. I had been wearing 36B for a long time, but I checked out some different sizes and a 34D turned out to be a much better and much more flattering fit. Yay!

Sorry to fill up your journal with so much bra neepery, Bear!
