The size 40 in bras refers to the band measurement, and it is on the larger end of the spectrum. However, it’s important to note that bra sizes are not just about the number. The cup size also plays a crucial role in determining whether a bra is considered “big” or not. In our store, we carry an extensive range of sizes, including those for larger bands like 40, and larger cup sizes as well.

When considering if a size 40 bra is big, it’s essential to understand that each person’s body is unique. The perception of what constitutes a “big” bra size can vary from individual to individual. Our focus here at the store is finding the perfect fit for you, regardless of traditional labels or societal perceptions. It’s more important to find a bra that provides proper support and comfort.

One common misconception about bra sizing is that bigger numbers always mean bigger breasts. However, this isn’t necessarily true because cup sizes also come into play when determining breast size relative to band size. Understanding this helps us cater specifically to your needs and find a comfortable fit tailored to your unique body shape.

A less-known fact about bra sizing is that many people may actually be wearing the wrong size without even realizing it. This can lead to discomfort and lack of proper support. Knowing this fact can encourage individuals to get professionally fitted for their bras regularly in order to ensure they are wearing the correct size for optimal comfort and support.

So let’s get you properly fitted with a beautiful new bra.
