Women REALLY need to learn how to measure properly! And there is NO WAY Dolly Parton has anything more than a 28" band size, I've met her and she's tinnnnnny. I'd definitely guess 26 or so.
I'm 5' 7" and quite skinny although big-boned...I'm a 36 DD. A 48 band seems to me quite large; certainly much bigger than someone weighing 100 lbs!

Yup. I am average height and not remotely skinny. I am 33-34 around the rib cage and wear 32/34 bands........

I always thought I was 36C, until I got fitted for a good bra. Now I am a 34DD. I don't look like I have a huge chest though. I seriously think most women wear the wrong size bra. The right size bra fits better and is more comfortable. I can find pretty, lacy, plunge, and push-up bras. They make them in all sizes ladies.

I agree. Real women come in all sizes. No need for remarks that make anything larger or smaller than average sound like it belongs in a circus.

confirm on some girls not knowing their size thing

one ex gf of mine was really big, another girl i knew was a J-cup and she was even bustier than her, but she would just find a triple D that had a wide enough band to hold her in.

I wear a 38-40F/G, and the first time a salesperson (at Lane Bryant, where I get all of my bras) suggested a "padded" bra I laughed in her face. Are you kidding?? Funny thing is, she was right! They really do give me more support, smooth out the lumps, and do NOT add actual volume/size... I've been wearing a padded style ever since.

A push-up, on the other hand, would probably give me black eyes.

Three are size 52 DD. I NEVER knew bras came in that size-heck, Dolly Parton couldn't wear this one! It all began when mom was asking for my bra size so she could include a few bras with my gifts. I said that I wear a 42 DD. She says "No you cannot wear a 42-that's not possible. Youre too big around" (meaning waist size) I mentioned that my measurements were 51 and 41, respectively. Anyone who has watched Oprah Winfrey religiously as much as she has should not have missed her special episode in which Oprah gives advice to women on proper bra fitting. Oprah says women sometimes need to go down a band size and up a cup size to get a better fit. 42 DD is what I wear. Now why argue about it? So now I am stuck with three ginormous bras which pretty much swallow me ( I think I will wear them to sleep in )

I mean come on , 52DD??? This would be totally hilarious if it weren't sad in the fact that mom doesn't listen to me at times...Moms don't always know best do they??
They come in much larger sizes than that.

Funny, when I was a kid growing up, I didn't think bras went any bigger than DDs....
