The equivalent US bra size for 85C is 38C. In the US bra sizing system, the band size is measured in inches, so an 85cm band would translate to approximately 33.5 inches, which is rounded up to 34 inches. Then, for each cup size increase or decrease, you add or subtract one inch respectively from the band size. Therefore, an 85C in European sizing would be a 34C in US sizing.
Many people believe that bra sizes are consistent across all brands and styles, but this is not true. Different brands and styles may fit differently even if they are labeled with the same size. It’s important to try on different bras to find the best fit for your unique body shape.
A lesser-known fact about bra sizing is that it can change over time due to factors such as weight loss/gain, pregnancy, and aging. This means it’s important to regularly get fitted for bras to ensure you are wearing the correct size.
Now that you know your equivalent US bra size for 85C, I recommend trying on a few different styles and brands of bras in this size to find what works best for you. And remember, finding a well-fitting bra can make a world of difference in both comfort and confidence.
