My mom thinks I should be wearing a D cup bra and mentions it to me often. I SWEAR I am wearing the correct size bra, a 36C. The thing is, my mom is super tiny and SHE wears a D cup so it makes sense that I, who am larger and thusly have bigger boobs, ought to be wearing a D cup too or even larger maybe.
But no, This is not how bra fitting works. Cup size is determined by a combination of number of inches your bust is and the DIFFERENCE between your boob measurement and your ribcage measurement. I have a wider ribcage and therefore a smaller cup size. Here is a handy online bra fitting calculator.
Anyway! Making a bra sounds like a fun proposition to me. Someday, I’ll do it.
Here’s a Threads article on the subject of bra making.
