After 36B, the next sizes in bra measurements are 38A, 38B, and 38C. These are larger band sizes with slightly different cup sizes to accommodate a fuller bust. When moving up in band size, it’s important to also consider adjusting the cup size accordingly for the best fit. For example, if you currently wear a 36B but find that the band feels too tight, I would recommend trying a 38A or a 38B depending on your specific measurements.

It’s essential to understand that as band size increases, so does the cup volume. This means that going up in band size may require going down in cup size to maintain the same overall fit. It’s not simply about increasing both band and cup size simultaneously. It’s about finding the right balance between them for optimal support and comfort.

Many people mistakenly believe that all bras with the same letter (e.g. B) have an identical cup volume regardless of their accompanying number (e.g. 36 vs. 38). However, this is not accurate – different bra sizes with the same letter will have varying volumes based on their corresponding band measurement.

Understanding how sister sizing works can be quite useful when looking for bras beyond traditional sizing options. Sister sizing refers to alternative bra sizes where the cup volume remains consistent despite variations in band size. Knowing about sister sizing can help you find more options if your standard size isn’t available or doesn’t quite fit perfectly.

I hope this information helps clarify any confusion about bra sizes beyond 36B. Remember that finding your perfect fit may require some trial and error, but I’m here to assist you every step of the way!
