A cup

The A cup is just one of the smaller cup sizes

A cup bras are generally considered the smallest cup size available. But we know their not.

They have the good companion of AAA and AA cups. And there’s more good news! There is a new cup size AAAA by Dainty Lady, a lingerie company from the UK.

Maybe you wear an A cup bra and are a bra LOVER already. Meaning you’re wearing your right bra size.

A well-fitted bra makes every woman a bra lover

Or it could be you’re not satisfied with your bras really. They don’t feel comfortable enough and don’t give you the confidence like you want it. Maybe you wear an AA, B or C cup now and really need an A cup instead.

Remember that bras have sister sizes. Meaning you could well fit more than one bra size. Especially if you’re in between two possible band sizes you could well have different cup sizes that fit you just fine. For example, a bra 80A has the same cup volume as a bra 75B.

How to find out what size bra you should be wearing? Where to find your perfect A cup? Most brands come in A cup but a bra made with a smaller breasted woman in mind is really what you’re looking for.

My A cup bra does not fit me that well

What could this mean?

Well. Lot’s of things.

  • You wear the wrong cup size
  • You wear the wrong band size
  • You wear the wrong cup size as well as the wrong band size

It could be your 34A cup bra should be a

36AA or a
36AAA instead

Can this be real?

Yes, it can. Bra sizing is not an exact science. It a process of taking good measurements and finding your true bra size (and checking a bra size chart that includes all small cups).

Changing you band size will change your cup volume as well

As I keep telling here a lot on brasforsmallcups.com. I own bras in 3 different sizes ( 34AA, 34A and 36AAA – and they all fit me just fine. Depending on the type of bra and the brand I choose different sizes.

Why may more sizes fit you fine?

Especially if you are in between two band sizes it is likely you fit more than one size. They are called sister sizes. Your current bra size has ‘sister sizes’ which are alternate sizes where the cup volume stays the same even though the band size and cup letter changes. 

Let’s say your wearing a 38A bra at this moment

  • if your band size is close to 36, sister size 36B might be a good fit
  • when your band size is close to 38, sister size 40AA might be a good fit.

My A cup is fine, but my band isn’t

If you’re happy with the fit of your cups, you wouldn’t want to change this.

But what if you’re not happy with your band and find it either too tight or too loose?

I’ll best explain this by an example.

You wear a 38A cup but want a wider band size.

  • You choose 40AA (wider band but keeping the same cup size)
  • So it’s up in the band, down in the cup (to keep the same cup volume).

You wear a 38A cup but want a smaller band size.

  • You choose 36B (smaller band but keeping the same cup size)
  • So it’s down in the band, up in the cup (to keep the same cup volume).
