    Don't blame the shops, there is little profit to be made on such specialist sizes, they're not jealous of "real curves"
    ... But they aren't specialist sizes. Whilst I agree it's ridiculous to suggest that it's because of jealousy, the sizes we're talking about are actually quite common - but so many people wear the wrong size, partly because they don't know what their right size is and partly because shops do tend to only go up to a DD.

    I got measured in M&S once, and they told me that I was a 38C. I am most definitely not a 38C - I'm between a 30-32G, and when I questioned it, the bra-measuring lady she was sorry, and just that she was used to assuming everybody is between an A and a D. Whilst it's only circumstantial evidence, from what she said and from what I've heard, it's fairly representative of the general 'bra-measuring' population. There's a willingness to assume that everybody fits into the average, which means that a lot of people get mis-measured.

    That happened to me in M&S too. I went in there when I was 15, and the woman told me I was a 38B. It made me think I was completely disillusioned about my shape and that my waist must be a lot bigger than I had thought. A couple days later I got measured in Debenhams, and the lady assured me I was in fact a 32E.

    I think the women at M&S simply aren't trained to measure women bigger than a D.

    Lose some weight.
    That was SO unneccessary.
    How can you be labelled PS Helper and TSR Legend when you say such nasty and irrelevant things?

    OH AND ANOTHER THING. How comes companies that make beautiful lingerie never go up to my size? Apparently girls bigger than a DD don't like wearing nice bras. Or, if they do, they must be rich. I shouldn't have to spend £30-£40 just to find a decent bra. I wear a 32F cup, and I wear size 10 knickers. What does that tell you??
    I totally get where you're coming from! I'm a G cup but my pants are a size 8 (occasionally 10)! I can never find perfect-fitting clothing so my mum has to take in ALL of my clothes, including lingerie sometimes!! And I can NEVER find my cup size - it's a total nightmare. I hate having big boobs because of it. And stores that DO sell my bra size are almost always solely online stores, their only colour options are pink (because of Jordan's brands and similar) and they push them up to make me look like a slut. URGH!
