    The online guides do not work for me either. I have been to Bravissimo to find that a mate who gave me advice in a pub was spot on. I have not trusted the measuring service in M&S since they measured me wrong by 3cup sizes and then the woman tried to tell me that it was my fault that her eecommended bra did not fit.

    If you do not want to be measured, take a selection of sizes into a changing room and try them on.

    Hi, girls,

    Despite the cat invasion (or is that just lots of pussy?) I shall persevere. Haven't had time to retype the long post I lost but some of the points are coming up here, largely that sizing is a bloody minefield. While i agree with the general principle of sizing by measuring the uderbust and then the overbust, there are so many shapes of women and such a range of sizes - say, size 6 to about size 30-something that a formula like that isn't going to work too well at the extremes even if it does in the middle of the range. Plus, being a man and therefore a different shape to any woman who isn't an olympic field eventer, it's harder still.

    Kitty, my sizing method is sort of the same but different. Start by getting a band size that fits snugly but comfortably. A new bra should be done up on the loosest hooks and still be snug enough for the band to take most of the weight of your boobs (I know, difficult to calculate if you have none). See how your bras fit round your back - if your bra collection is typical most will be one band size (possibly two if you're 'between sizes') with a couple of odd ones where the sizing is all to pot. If yiu have new bras that fit well round your back, go by that size.

    Now, the controversial bit. Although I have enough breast to fill a 38B cup, I need to wear a 38C usually as the 38B wires are too tight and dig into the sides of my boobs. If you're a small backed lady that probably won't be your problem - my chest is quite wide! But, and this is a big but, if you're under-endowed, you still want to get the cups so that the wires fit snugly round the base of your boobs even if they leave a little space in the cups. You'll probably find that on your frame, different styles, such as plunge, balconette or full cup will fit best in different cup sizes. Don't panic. As long as there's not a huge cavern in there you'll still be alright. And probably a plunge style will work well without leaving a gap at all. After all, that's what they're meant to do.

    If you do end up with a gap, use chicken fillets as advised earlier in the thread. Because different makes and styles of bra vary so much, I have them in three sizes plus a 'complete breast' style pair that I use when even the biggest ones don't quite work. I don't like wearing those much; somehow it seems more like cheating than the fillets. The thing about chicken fillets is they fit under or to the side of the breast, pushing you up or in and giving more roundness or more cleavage or both. Once they're in you don't feel them (well, I don't) and in a padded bra nobody will know you have them in. Also, if your lack of boobs means your bras tend to ride up, the fillets will stop that in its tracks, so it's actually more comfortable than without.

    If you're scared to get fitted, go to a department store and take a range of sizes into the changing room to try. If your OH is 'breast aware' you might like to have the help, or take a friend. But I do recommend getting fitted at a proper lingerie shop where the staff are likely to be older than you and they'll have seen it all - possibly even men like me! Once you've had a good fitting you'll be, erm, hooked.

    It's no practical help whatsoever, but some of us chaps do prefer small boobs!

    I use to bra fit and I would recommend air filled or padded bras rather than liquid or gel as they give more shape. The wonderbra full effect bra I found was most comfortable and omphing for customers and friends, I would recommend it!!! x

    I remember reading about a new bra that adds several cup sizes to your chest. I think La Senza do one but can't remember where the other is. Will update if I can find it but the general idea is that it's more padded than a normal bra but not as heavy as a gel filled one, kinda like a bra with inbuilt chicken fillets that are padding if that makes sense?

    Edit -It could have been Victoria's Secrets. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/04/19/victorias-secret-miraculous-bra_n_850877.html

    I have rather small boobs, but found that certain bras and types of clothing can help.

    I got this, which enhances your shape with a bit of padding, but still feels pretty natural. http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=20239 -Its not available on here anymore, but worth a look.

    I've also found that (I just realised how obvious this is..) wearing tighter tops makes me look a bit bigger. I usually just wear a tshirt with a slightly scooped neckline, not too low but not right up againt the neck if you know what I mean. I also like to wear those tops that are a little baggy, but those make my boobs like almost non existent.

    I know it probably doesn't help, but be confident with what you've got :) I'm pretty flat chested and have found that most men don't even care. I have considered a boob job in the past, but just thought, who am I getting it for- myself, or others? Now, I don't care what people think of me and my small boobs!

    From a male perspective I can only echo QueenC - it's the woman that matters, not the boobs. I've had partners with all shapes and sizes of boobs from nothing to rather a lot and they were all very lovely. And taking a reverse view, as a male I have larger boobs than you'd expect, but I'm still me, and if people don't like my chest sticking out a bit more than normal that's their problem.

    None of us is physically perfect and I guess most of us are more worried about our weak points than anybody else is. Life's too short to worry about this sort of stuff - if you have your health, cherish it, and if you don't, you'll already know there's more to life than big tits (nice though they are...).

    Thanks sub-kitten and PinkPolkaDot. It seems the online guides aren't all the same as the results vary between them! Think I may need to go down a size. There's no Bravissimos near me though.

    You're welcome. Comfy & supported boobs makes for a happier girl :] Marks & Spencer are also very good for fittings too.

    Shame la senza shut down they were always helpful with measurements :)

    Well Jimi, since you have revived this thread I'll throw my 2 pennyworth in, even though MrsKitty doesn't appear to have posted anything since last December so she may not even get to see it.

    Ladies, stop worrying about the size of your breasts - unless they are causing a medical problem just love what you have got - 'cos us guys love what you've got, regardless of size. OK - some guys love them big, some guys love them small, some guys like to see a great big cleavage, some guys like to see just a hint of a gap, and some guys don't care as long as they can get their hands on them!

    In common with a lot of the guys who have already posted on this thread I actually prefer small breasts - as far as I am concerned a girl with small breasts wearing a T-shirt with no bra underneath is a real turn-on and beats the Lara Croft look any day. But that's just me, my best mate likes them as big as they can come so that he can bury his head in there - but at the risk of being a little rude my feeling is that whatever you can't get in your mouth is wasted!

    And finally, for all you girls who think your breasts are the "wrong" size, If the guy you are with doesn't like the size of your breasts then he is clearly very shallow and is not with you for WHO you are - so dump him!

    push up bras and chicken fillets! I swear I can get punched in the tit and I don't feel a thing. Hah I also have a friend who wears like 3 bras at once, so just look at run of the mill bras and double them up :)

    Laughing at this . When I was in my teenage years, the girls used to do the 'pencil test', ie put a pencil under your boob, if it stays put you have saggy boobs, if it doesn't you have firm ones. I know this is utter rubbish, but we were young and stupid... I like all breasts
