30 sounds about right...but unfortunately ALL celebrites/models/etc. have to be a standard size, even if they're very obviously not. I read somewhere that Christina Hendricks is a 36D and Kat Dennings was a 34D, both of which are very hard to believe. However, if they came out and said 'I'm a 28H' people would flip out and the shaming would begin. I've had it happen to myself on several occasions. Hell, I've heard people say DD cups are only for 'wh*res' and 'skanks'... I mean, really? But it happens.

It's just the way her skeleton is shaped.

You likely just have a deep ribcage like I do.

When I see Giselle and other VS models, I imagine they must not even fit into VS bras. I am 100% sure that the bras they model are altered because the 32 bands on MY body ride up and I'm no VS model.

I'm size 4-6, 5'4". If a 32 inch VS band rides up on my figure which is about average woman sized, there is no way VS models actually wear VS bras unaltered.

I'm about to return a boat load of VS bras because the 32 band is just not supportive at all.

The women in op were hourglasses so they had a v as well on top so likely their rib cages are bigger
It says those women's sizes are posted on the website they model for. I believe Jade posted the link. There is no need to argue, if you think its false advertising, just contact the website but as far as this thread is concerned I think there is legitimacy to the statement about those women's sizes.

Once you get out of Victoria's Secret and JC Penney, and into higher end or Euro brands bra sizes run A LOT differently. This woman wears a 26 or 28 band:

There is no way those models are actually wearing off the rack VS bras. I'm sure they're all hand fitted specifically for the shows and catalogs, but the 'style' is the same. There's also no way that those models would ever tell their 'true' sizes because if they can't wear the product, how can they convincingly sell it to others?

Not only are they plus size, they are above average, at least over here.

Poke around on the bra band project. Most if the women with a 28 band aren't model sized. A thin poster her has mentioned she is officially a 24 band. Which is difficult to impossible to find.


I am on my phone, please forgive the typos.
If so then how come my mom is a pear 93 lbs and 4'11".


Also they're hourglasses so their rib cage should be bigger than their rib cage

Btw that was her waist not rib cage.

She doesn't look the same size. She just has big boobs lol
She does have a pooch but that's just her stomach. But if you want to live in a fantasy go ahead.

What does rib cage size have to do with having love handles? You can have a narrow ribcage and still be overweight.
