How do I know I wear a C-cup?
We know that the bra size contains two parts. One is the number that is your band size, the other is the letter that decides your cup size. For example, bra size 34c, 34 is the band size, and C is the cup size. As to how to calculate your cup size, you need two measurements. One is your ribcage beneath your breast tissue, the other is your fullest chest. According to HSIA's size chart, no matter what their exact numbers are, as long as there are 5-6 inches differences between the two, then it is a C cup. The cup size shows how much the breasts project from the ribcage. However, every bra brand may be slightly different. Here you wear a C cup with an HSIA bra. It is possible that you become a D cup or a B cup using another brand's size chart. It is ok, make sure you have your most up-to-date measurements to calculate your bra size before you make any purchase from any brand.

Does a C cup count as big?
Actually, the C cup is considered by many people as the most perfect size, it is proportionate to the whole body, curvier than the B cup, but not as heavy-looking as the D cup. Many girls with a natural A cup or B cup, who are seeking a boobs implant will consider a C cup as their goal. Not only does the C cup look good, but it is better to limit the implant to a two-cup size difference, Otherwise, they will be too heavy for the upper body to bear if they are not born that way. Even the naturally big-busted women are always struggling to keep a good posture and deal with the weight. Everyone may have a different conception regarding big or small, pretty or not pretty, but the C cup in fact is a common and most desired size for many girls. For those who would like a bigger look, you can consider wearing a push-up bra to enhance the effect. Or you can pay more attention to your body figure. Try to keep it slim and flat-stomached, this way the C-size breasts will be visually larger too.
What is the difference between 34C, 36C, or 38C?
If judging by how much the breast projects from the rib cage, then they are the same, C cup with a 5-6 inches difference. As for the breast tissue or volume, they are slightly different, which should not be hard to understand. With wider space(band), there comes more breast tissue, hence, the 38c contains more breast volume than the other two. If you wear a 36c and would like to try its sister sizes, then instead of 34C or 38C, you should go for 34D or 38B.
What bras are the best for C cups?
C cup is almost the average of the size range. Unlike A or F, it is a common size and easy to buy. Even so, there are many subtle differences between the 24+ bra sizes. It requires precise calculation and design, much harder to make 24 precise variant sizes than just S, M, and L.
