While bra sizing among manufacturers can vary, bra styles also influence fit as not all woman wearing, for example, a 38C bra have the same breast shape. Balcony bras, also known as shelf bras, generally provide less coverage than a demi-cup bra and effectively serve to lift breasts up to create fullness on the top half of the breast. If you are a full 38C, meaning your breasts are as round (full) on top as they are on the bottom half – not sloped (sagging on top, fuller on bottom) – than the added boost this bra creates may cause you to pop over the cup. If you fall into this category (full 38C), we recommend going up a cup size for this bra style (i.e., a 38D in this example). If your breasts sag, as breasts can commonly lose firmness and elasticity with age and life experience (e.g., pregnancy, breast feeding, weight loss, menopause…), your existing size should be fine.
