Bra Whisperer Confessions: I’m a 36DD & my bra is uncomfy

Bra Whisperer Confessions: I’m a 36DD & my bra is uncomfy

Our Bra Whisperer is always on hand to help women across the globe with their bra dilemmas!

But one size is a common problem – 36DD

The media around the world have always have always portrayed ‘big boobs’ as a DD and so when women look at their bust and liken it to a perceived DD in the media, it can lead to wearing the wrong bra size for MANY years. Our Bra Whisperer speaks from experience:

“In my teens it was all about Jessica Simpson in Dukes of Hazards wearing Denim shorts and ‘sporting DD’s’ – in reality her bra size is more like a 30GG. But of course, seeing these types of headlines made me look down and think, well they look like mine, so i must be a DD too.”

This perception of bra size has led to a generation of women who have believe that they are a DD and our most commonly transformed size is a 36DD. The revelations which come after our Bra Whisperer has taken a look at your images can often be MAJOR. We are talking transformations from a 36DD to a 30H, 36DD to 34G AND 36DD to 36FF.

Transformations just like this ONE! Rachel (AKA LittleBlondeBlogX) went from a 36DD to a 34G! We caught up with Rachel after her fitting about how she feels in the right size, watch the IGTV.

Here are the key signs of an ill fitting bra:

Shoulder indents


Double boob

Riding up back band

Wires digging in


Don’t worry when you see that a brand only starts from a D cup, chances are if you are wearing a 34B – you will be somewhere between a 28E and 30DD. It is still very much worth getting the expert opinion so that you can feel fabulous in your lingerie!
