DD+ Bra Sizes Have Several Names

Gigi's Closet's famous DD+ department continues to help full-chested women find bras that fit just right. However, you need to know that while American cup size ranges are A, B, C, D, DD, DDD, there are several brands that measure a bit differently. For example, Elle MacPherson bras are made for sizes A, B, C, D, DD, E. And most French brands, like Aubade and Lejaby, run A, B, C, D, E, F, G. So a DDD cup would be an F cup in their bras. DD cups would be an E cup. So, remember that if you are a DD or a DDD cup, also search for E and F cups because they will fit too. This will give you a wider range of DD+ bras to choose from. You can always check our fitting room that offers the size ranges for each brand to make sure you are purchasing the right sizes.
