# Are cup sizes calculated via the amount of fat in the breast? watch

1. There's something I've wanted to know.

Are cup sizes calculated by the amount of fat tissue in the breasts?

Do smaller breasts have less fat tissue than bigger breasts with is why cup sizes exist?

thats pretty obvious, also cup size varies with back size too for example a 30D cup is smaller than a 36D cup.
3. Nothing better to do on a Friday night?

4. Pretty sure it's volume based.
5. 34D = 36C

for example.

it's volume but it's also proportional to the strap bit
6. I'm not talking about the back width. I'm just talking about the amount of fat tissue in the breasts.
7. You again.
8. the number is the width under your breasts and around your back, the cup size is dependant on the difference in inches between the width around your breasts and the width under your breasts (so you have to measure all around your breasts and back to get the difference), go to a shop like debenhams or marks and spencers bra fitting free services to get more detail...
9. There is this thing called Google, I suggest you use it.

10. also im pretty sure an A is only a inch, B is 2, C is three inch difference between breasts and under bust...etc...
11. Weird thread lol. Bigger breasts contain more actual breast tissue as well, but will contain more fat. However there is a difference between someone who's naturally say 32F and has a healthy physique and someone who would probably be 28D if they were at a healthy weight, but due to being overweight is 32F.

But you can have the same cup size and different sized breasts.

And amount of fat could vary quite easily within a cup size as well.
