^ di naman, unless you don't want other customers to know your size.  ;D

just tell the SA you're unsure of your size and that you'd like to be measured. i think all of them do this naman but i've only had myself measured at m&s and at triumph in rustan's. feeling ko pag sa SM baka hindi kasing friendly ang SAs.  ;D

Got myself measured at Victoria's Secret.  What can i do ( shrugs shoulders ::)), I got cornered by the SA ....napabili tuloy, but no regrets- great bra plus I now know I know my real bra cup.

I super want to have another fitting.  I had one with an SA sa M&S before, pero parang WRONG eh.  I want to be checked again.  Nakakainis kasi parang inconsistent ang sizing dito sa Pinas :(  Like Triumph, etc

i went to la senza at trinoma 2 weeks ago. the SA took my measurements coz i wasn't sure about my bra size. 36 cup d daw. i was really surprised. i used to buy 36 cup b bra. pero di ko binili yung cup d na bra. although it fits right, i felt like it was big. i never had a bra that big. but it felt right and looks nice when i tried it.
i'll try to go ask another SA from another store to check if the size is consistent w/ the measurement done by the SA of la senza.
oo nga parang pang porn star naman yung mga cup d and dd na bra. they really look big when you're not wearing them.

I measured myself then entered my measurements into an online calculator. I'm supposed to be a 28C. Eh san naman ako makakahanap ng ganyang klaseng bra? T_T Mukhang tama naman kasi 32A doesn't fit me right.

hi! did you use this site?  http://www.85b.org/bra_calc.php im thinking of having it done at home first.  medyo nakakahiyang magpa-sukat sa boutique tapos hindi naman ako bibili.. and i also don't want to ask the SA's of department stores.. hehe!

Sa makeover show ni Tim Gunn, they always bring the person to a shop for professional fitting. Kaiinggit sa US merong ganung mga stores.

Sa mga naghahanap ng D and DD, sa M&S meron yan and sa Debenhams I think.

Hindi lang naman sa Pinas weird ang sizing ng bras. Actually everywhere naman yan eh. Kanya kanya kasing style and makers ng bras. Kaya it is always suggested to fit first the bra you are going to buy. Even if you have been buying from the same brand but bought a different style, you should try that on first to see if it fits well.

I badly need a professional bra fitting asap. Lahat ng bra ko hindi na ko comfortable. Saan po maganda magfit? Yung hindi naman masyadong pressure na mamili ka sakanila lalo na kung yung super expensive ones yung iaalok sayo. :P

ako man i need this badly.  after pregnancy halos lahat ng bra ko di na kasya, maliit na lahat ng cups!  yung nursing bra ko naman ayaw ko na isuot kasi wala naman mashadong support kasi walang underwire.

nakakadisappoint yung local brands natin wala mashadong options for those well-endowed like me.  namamahalan ako sa wacoal etc pero i guess in the long run ok na din yung mapagastos ka atleast tama naman ang size and matibay naman daw.

mga ilang pairs kaya ang kailangan ko?  baka abutin ako ng 10k pag ipinilit ko ng 7pairs hehe
you know you love me!

I just had a bra fitting this afternoon. After I had my baby, all the while I thought my size was 38B, after the fitting, it was 34D or 36C. Kaya pala all my bras were ill fits, the strap falls, the cups does not fall flat, etc., hindi comfortable. I should have done this a long time ago.

Ako naman I thought 34A ako yun pala 32B, I agree with comments above it is a must na tama ang size magpasukat dapat kasi iba talaga ang fit clothes pag correct ang size ng undergarments mo.
