The bra cup size ‘FF’ is usually associated with UK or Australian brands. The FF cup size in European brands can sometimes be different, as they do not carry a DD cup (which means that their G cup is equal to an Australian/UK FF cup).
Although a FF cup bra is the same in theory, in practical terms a FF cup in one brand could be a whole cup size different in another brand.
Finding a FF cup-sized bra in a mainstream stores is almost impossible in Australia. However, at Brava a FF cup is our biggest selling cup. Many women who believe they are a DD or E cup are more often an F or FF cup (because they had not been fitted correctly when previously buying bras).
We estimate that most women who visit Brava for the first time and tell us they are an FF cup would be closer to a G or GG cup. But remember, your bra band could be too big, so when we fit a smaller back band on you it will decrease the cup size too (so the cup size then must go up to compensate).
Remember: Not all FF cups are the same size - the size of the back band actually changes the size of the cup. As the size of your back band increases, so does the size of the cup. The FF cup of a 16FF is bigger than the FF cup of a 12FF. So in actual fact a 16FF is two cup sizes bigger than a 12FF. Confused? Visit us for a bra fitting or email our fitting team today.
