What bra sizes are considered big?
It is a relatively subjective question. Big or small depends on your personal perception. A bra size consists of the size of the band and cup. Normally, when we notice someone has big boobs， it can be that she has a big cup size, meaning the breast protrudes from the ribcage in an obvious way. Or when the woman has a lean and petite figure, her breasts will visually appear bigger than they actually are. Also, if she has broader shoulders and a wide hip, most likely, the breast will be overshadowed and look smaller on her body. So, the cups, band, and physique are all factors that influence our judgment.
If we only focus on the cup size here, many people will agree that the C cup is more of an average cup, while D, DD(E), DDD(F) cups will be considered big, and G, H, I, J, K are more than big, they are on the large spectrum.
Big bra size with HSIA's bras
If you take a look at HSIA's size chart, you will notice that its big cup sizes include D, DD, and DDD. to know if you are in such sizes, you need to measure your underbust right below your breast where the bra band sits, and the full parts of your breast across your nipples. With these two measurements, you can calculate your size.
With HSIA's size system, the inches differences between the underbust and overbust will determine your cup size:
6-7 inches: D cup
7-8 inches: DD cup
8-9 inches: DDD cup
If your measurements are in between, you can try its sister sizes to find the perfect fit. For example, if you measure to be a 36dd size, you can also try 34ddd and 38d, they have similar cup volumes.

What does a K cup size look like and how does it feel?
The K cup may be the biggest cup size that we can think of in real life. For girls like me who have a b or c cup, it is simply hard to imagine. I have seen some of them share experiences living with K-cup boobs. Unlike the DDD cup which is still considered very sexy, A k cup is out of proportion with the rest of the body and it causes many inconveniences in real life. For example, carrying such weighty burdens lead to serious neck and upper back pain, and it causes even bigger pain when they try to do sport. It costs more to buy appropriate bras too, bras in such size are rarer and of granny's style. Outfits are no easy choices either, in most cases, they would have to be custom-made or altered to fit the enormous breasts and the small waist. Girls with K cups often grow big breasts when they are in school during puberty. They are often self-conscious about their differences and have to suffer from peer staring and even taunting. They might grow relatively low self-esteem and become less confident， and more likely to develop the habit of slouching and hunching to camouflage their big breasts.
For those who have relatively flat chests, you should feel lucky and blessed to be free of the pains that the k-cup women have to go through. For those who live with such big chests, you would have to learn to make peace with reality and make yourself feel good and healthy.
