How bra sizes work... in detail.

Today I Learnt how bra sizes work...

For example 34C:

34 is the Band Size which is equal the Under Bust Size (measurement of chest under the boobs) + 5 in inches.

C is the Cup Size which is equal the Bust Size (measurement of the chest through the boobs) - the Band Size.

The Cup Size is then expressed in letters AA, A, B, C, D, DD which are respectively 0 though 5 inches.

I never knew how these fancy letters and numbers were defined. Thanks sexxit!
