Size and Relevance of the Breasts
While Breasts are a commonality in both females and males, Breast Size, has been and is, predominantly, an issue for women. Such anatomy is a heralded aspect of femininity within the female sex, as it conjures self-awareness to women, and, from the male perspective, is a physical alluring attribute in attracting the attention of men.
For most women, their respective Breast Size is a concern, as it plays a significant role in the overall physical presentation to the opposite sex, in that being from the viewpoint of men. Sizing of a woman's breasts is determined by the measurement of the bust line combined with the size of the cup, in proportion to the weight of each breast. Upon shopping for such an undergarment, the indicated sizes will be listed as bust measurement and cup size, such as 34 D or 36 B. Cups, in correlation to weight of each Breast Size, generally run in a range from A to D, with some designs enhanced for fuller figures, that will be displayed in doubling or tripling the cup size, such as AA, BBB, etc. Bust line measurement, or size, in metric or imperial calculations, is taken from just below the breasts, or, the bust line around the entire torso.
As women, at large, are composed of the same anatomical features, Breast Size varies, and, is not always proportionate with women's height, weight and overall body structure. In the United States, a statistical study of research has been compiled, in regards to establishing an average or range of the more common Breast Size amongst women. These results reveal the most relevant Breast Size within the conducted poll. Hence, in utilizing the formula table of brassier or bra sizes, in relationship to the weight and size of the breasts, themselves, are the results, along with the percentages of women, who are within each size referenced, as follows – AA cup, 2%; A cup, 15%; B cup, 44%, C cup, 28%; D cup, 10%; and DD cup, 1%.
Simply stated, the larger the cup, the more sizable are the breasts. An A size cup would contain a smaller sized breast, than that of a size D cup, which would result in breasts of considerable volume. As it would be challenging, at best, to accurately weigh the breasts, a type of calculation has been developed, as a guideline, of sorts, in determining Breast Size. The formula advised is for the woman to take a torso measurement directly beneath the breasts, referred to as the bust line, measuring completely around this part of the body. Then add five inches to the bust line measurement, and a fairly accurate determination, as to the cup size, can be obtained. To sum up this mathematical equation, a woman that measures thirty-seven inches or ninety-two and a half centimeters around the bust line, would be, at an appropriate estimation, a size of 42 inches, metrically, or, imperially, at one hundred-five centimeters. Factor in a three-inch or seven and a half centimeter variance for cup variation, which would equal an entire bust measurement of forty-five inches or one hundred twelve and a half centimeters.
Therefore, in terms of evaluation, the commonly referenced Breast Size would be at a C cup, with a forty-two inch or one hundred-five centimeters, in measurement, also interpreted in the more traditional sense, as size 42 C or 105 C, dependent upon the scale of use. To separate the actual breast measurements from the bust line measurement provides a more accurate reference to the actual Breast Size. This sizing determination begins with a half-inch or one and one quarter centimeter for an AA cup, a one inch or two and a half centimeter for the A cup, a two inch or five centimeters for a B cup, a three inch or seven and a half centimeter for a C cup, a four inch or ten centimeter for a D cup, a five inch or twelve and a half centimeter for either a DD or E cup, a six inch or fifteen centimeter for an F cup, and, a seven inch or seventeen and a half centimeter for the G cup. Further determinations in breast sizing can be calculated from these indicated figures.
Generalizations, in correlation to Breast Size and the particular body build range of women; can marginally be based upon such a referencing scale as follows –
Bust line measurements ranging from thirty-two to thirty-eight inches or eighty centimeters to ninety-five centimeters, encompassing, within this scale, A size cup for slender builds, B size cup for average builds, and C size cup for heavier builds. Measurements for Bust lines that range from forty to forty-two inches or one hundred to one hundred five centimeters, encompassed within the same scale, are a B cup for an average build, and either a C or D cup for the heavier build. For those bust line measurements which range from forty-four to forty-six inches or one hundred-ten to one hundred-fifteen centimeters, utilizing this scale, the average build would be the equivalent of a C cup, with the heavier build requiring a D or DD cup.
