Cup A is the slightly bigger sister of AAA and AA. This guide is all about A-sized ladies. Enjoy!

1. How small is a cup size A?

Bras come in different band sizes and in different cup volumes. Cup size A is one of the smaller cup sizes available. Other small cups are AAA and AA.

A teenager’s first bra can be a cup A. But a grown-up woman can also have a cup A (or smaller).

Bra sizes can be very close. And you cannot just say cup A is smaller than cup B.

For example.

AAA, AA, A cups | Shop at lulalu.com

✔ a woman is wearing a 40C bra. She is not happy with the cups, they are too big and she finds the band size a bit too tight.
✔ going up a band size would be a 42 band. When going up a band size the cup volume will automatically change too.
✔ A 42C bra has more cup volume as a bra in 40C. So this woman has to go down at least one cup size. She might wanna try 42B and 42A.

2. What happens with my cup size if I change the band size?

woman measuring bra size

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.

Remember that bras have sister sizes. Meaning you could fit one of your siter sizes.

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.

3. The difference between cup A and cup B

Bra measuring is not difficult. But finding your best bra size can. Why?

It’s because bra sizes can be very close.

Use my bra calculator to play around with your measurements a bit. It will be of great help to learn what bra sizes you can try.
