I don't get why this is and I didn't realize this was the case until I was 14... I had been wearing A36's since I was 11. When I got large it was assumed my ribcage was larger. I found out at 14 after accidentally trying on a C34 that I was far better off with that size than any of the other sizes. Better does not mean perfect though. I was actually a C32. This has been my 4 year dillema. I know my right size. It took me to go to like 7 different stores to actually find this size to figure out it was the right size. But every bra size I've found that was that size they've always very expensive. I can never find many 32's of any kind outside of A or B in stores like jcp's kohls macy's or sear's and when I do find them there's a small selection. I don't get why there's so much neglect for certain sizes? I've had to go with the next size up C34's which are obviously wrong sizes whenever ii wear a shirt that shows the back the straps are way too high.. Why is this? I'm not the only one I've heard of the size for others before why do some stores not have this size? Why is it just a select few sizes?

also why aren't there any 30 or 28 ever? I mean outside of an A. My mom has the same issue all her life trying to find a 30 B that wasn't so very pricey.

Go to a regular bra shop and get fitted properly or go to a higher end department store (Dillard's, Macy's) and get fitted properly. Until you are measured properly by someone who actually is a professional you will never find your proper size nor a bra that fits well and it comfortable.

I've been fitted like several times over. Some said A32/34. Some said B32. All of which I'd try on the recommended bra size and in the a's they wouldn't cover at all and 's were a bit small for me. All bra fitters who have seen me in a C32 or C34 that they're the vest sizes. But C34 gives me good suport ut the band rises up while the C32 doesn't. It's my perfect size fitters have seen that it's just after I tried it on I saw the price and it was way eyond my budget. I'd just like to get my bras cheap and fit well just like the rest of my clothes. Not even my jeans are all that bad when it comes to finding that size. Idk why stores neglect this size. It just is odd to me.

Try being over an F. Bra shopping is super expensive.

32C bras aren't more expensive than other sizes. They are harder to find, but far from impossible and can be found at department stores as well as Victorias Secret. I should know, it's what I wore before being properly sized.

But from all you've said, you're not a 32C, probably a 30D or 28DD. Your band size is how many inches around you are underneath your breasts. Don't add anything to that measurement and make sure the tape measurer is parallel to the floor.

My choice is buy bras that don't fit and look ridiculous. Or suck it up. I choose to look for sales, and hit Nordstrom Rack, online stores, etc....

actually I am. If I excel my rib cage is 28 and my chest is in the range of 34 to 35. Mainly I follow the instruction on how a bra fits oneself which is by making sure there is not too much or too little coverage. I get that with C32. I'm american we do the whole sizing weird.

I went to victoria's secret efore the chick said they had no sizes as small and size for me. That was in meadowwood. I guess it's just the cheap stores I go to regularly have dparse 34's and no 32's. I just don't get why that is.

sales seem like a good idea. All the times I shopped it really isn't planned out like that more just at the moment type of thing. Sounds like a better idea.

This. I'm 34 B (barely) but when I bra shop most anything in a 34 is a C or up and many Bs I find are too big, but A rarely works. It's supply and demand. You have to find a specific bra that works for you stock up!
