Tales From the BRABAR Studio: Best Preteen Bralettes with D-DDD/F Cups

Nothing is better than finding a bra that fits comfortably on your band and bust.  The struggle is real.  BRABAR is all about helping people find what works best for them by educating women, teenagers, and preteens about finding the proper size and fit.

Comfortable and multi-use teen bralettes and preteen bralettes are always great options to have in any wardrobe.  Finding the best teen bralettes or best teen sports bralettes can be difficult, especially for teenagers and girls with D-cup, DD-cup/E-cup, and DDD-cup/F-cup (a full bust) and a petite band size.

In the BRABAR Studio, many teenagers and preteens with different sizes and bralette and bra needs came into the doors. From teen bralettes, cotton bralettes, halter bralettes, cami-bras, bras for tube tops, crop tops and bralettes, and strapless bras, the selection is here.

Here is an example for preteens with D-DDD/F-cups and petite band sizes from the BRABAR Studio:

I had a preteen come in for her first bra fitting.  Her mother wanted her to have an everyday option and a sports bralette.  The preteen measured a 30-inch rib cage measurement. Therefore, she had a 30-bra band size.  Her overbust measurement was a 36-inch bust size.  How to find the correct band and how to measure bust sizes is as follows:  you subtract your bra band size from your bust size.  The difference between her two measurements was a 6-inch difference.  Each inch is a cup size, so 1 inch is an A-cup, 2-inch is a B-cup, 3-inch is a C-cup, 4-inch is a D-Cup, 5-inch is a DD-cup/E-cup, and 6-inch is a DDD-cup/F-cup.  Since a 6-inch difference is a DDD-cup/F-cup, the young adult was a 30DDD/F bra size.  

These are the suggestions I gave the preteen for their D-DDD/F cups with a petite band (in no particular order):

  • The classic Everyday Bra is a versatile, all-day supportive bra with a back closure featuring a smooth design and removable cups for comfort and style.

The preteen who measured 30ddd chose the Soft V Laceback Bralette, Hug Strappy Halter, Everyday Bra, and Soft Crop Multiway Convertible Bralette.  Since this was her first bra fitting, she picked multiple options.  An Everyday Bra for her everyday use was a great option.  The Soft V Laceback Bralette is a great comfortable option for every day and adds a bit of flare to the wardrobe.  The HUG Strappy Halter and Soft Crop are great multi-use options as sport bralettes.  Soft Crop also has convertible straps to make criss-cross and halter an option.  She picked out a great first batch of bras!

So the conclusion from the preteen’s choices is if you need bras for D-DDD/F cup sizes, you know where to look!  When in doubt, go for the Soft Collection!

How to find the correct bra size at home.

Here's a comprehensive guide to measuring your bra size and understanding cup sizes:

  • To determine your bra size accurately, it's essential to follow these steps:

    1. Measure Underbust: Use a soft measuring tape to wrap around your body, positioning it just below your breasts. This measurement corresponds to your band size. Round to the nearest whole number for accuracy.

    2. Measure Overbust: Wrap the measuring tape around your body over the fullest part of your breasts. This measurement indicates your bust size. Round to the nearest whole number for precision.

    3. Calculate Cup Size: Subtract your band size from your bust size. This difference determines your cup size or the volume of your breast tissue. Cup sizes range from AAA to DDD/F, with each inch of difference representing a higher cup size. For instance, 1 inch difference corresponds to an A cup, 2 inches to a B cup, and so forth.

    By following these steps and referring to a sizing bra chart or bra measurements chart, you can accurately determine your bra size and understand the relationship between band size and cup size. This knowledge ensures a comfortable and supportive fit, enhancing your overall comfort and confidence.

    For further assistance and to explore different bra sizes and styles, refer to a sizing chart for bras or consult a cup size guide. Whether you're looking for brassieres sizes, strapless bras, or need guidance on how to measure bra size and cup size, utilizing these resources will help you find the perfect fit for your unique body shape and preferences.
