By Emma BarnettWomen's Editor. Balconette, strapless, plunge, full cup, half cup — this bra business is complicated stuff. And yet, despite all of the options design and style out there, the majority of British women are still walking around wearing the wrong sized-bra.
Because women come in all different shapes and sizes, there really is no 'one size fits all' style, no matter what the tag may say. The struggle is just as real for people seeking the best bras for small boobsas too much padding or too little support lead to equal annoyance. While there are many perks to having small boobs, finding the best bra for a small-chests is tough.
O dd things are happening in women's bras. In recent years, the average British bra size has jumped from 34B to 36D, which means that while women's backs have grown one size, breasts have jumped up two. Many department stores have increased the range of cup sizes on offer to meet the ballooning demand.
If you've ever wondered what the number and letter of your bra size really mean, you're not alone. It's a sizing method that has been in use for years and has gone through several changes. This is the single most important tool for bra fitters.
Every woman is different and so are her breasts, which is why finding the right bra size becomes imperative. It is not only important to enhance appearance but also to define correct posture and lend the needed support. By knowing your correct bra size, you are taking the first step towards finding the perfect bra fitting!
But this is absurd. But this is also a story about a mistaken market. But more recently it has been hard to escape the sense of a generalised market failure, driven by fashion, which sees breasts as an impediment to design, not so much a secondary characteristic as a nuisance.

It follows a survey which revealed around 80 per cent of women are wearing a bra size that doesn't suit their shape. At the start of the video, they all revealed the sizes they usually wear; Alexina said she goes for a 32B, Josephine a 32C, and Barbara a 32B though once a month she goes up to a C-cup. The expert examined how the women's bras fitted them once they removed their shirts, and discovered a number of issues.
