The Bra Size Alphabet

How do you feel about your bra size? Are your cups half full, half empty, or over-flowing?

Before I worked at Brava, I used to squeeze myself into D cup bras. I didn't even believe cups went bigger than an E cup¦ anything close to an F cup set me reeling back in self-denial! On the subject of self-denial, as a teenager I was fearful of anyone mentioning Dolly Parton in my presence. Name-calling wasn't something I stood up to well.

At the very beginning of my journey as a bra fitter at Brava, I had to swallow my pride, step out of my own self denial and go through the bra fitting process myself. For the first time in my life (at age 37), I was fitted into my correct bra size - 12GG. Golly Gosh! Great God almighty!

It took me some time to get used to the new double figured letters. But amazingly, and as I now see time and time again as a professional fitter¦ a well-fitted bra in the correct size looks fantastic, feels 100 times better, made me look smaller and feel so much happier and better about myself. I can't believe I waited so long. It's made such a difference to my posture, how I feel about myself and how my clothes look. It's fantastic.

Now after 2 years of bra fitting, and helping 100s of women find beautiful and supportive bras from D-K cup¦ I've decided to reclaim my own ˜name-calling' by weaving some whimsical word-smithing of cup size letters for your sheer delight and entertainment. You may even like to make up your own, or claim what's written here, to match your cup size!

Here at Brava we don't start at A... we are not an ABC shop. We're a little bit more SBS; world wide, exotic and foreign.

Here at Brava, we start at a D cup, a delightful D, sizes 6-22, catering for bold, brave bodilicious babes.

If you meet one, or are one yourself, you might like to roll these words off your tongue and see what you like. Or even better¦ share your own inspiring, creative and empowering word-smithing ways with us by commenting below.
