    So I'm getting a bit perturbed (to sound like a 57 yr old... no offense to the latter side of mid-century folk runnin' these parts). But having conversed online with a few prospects, as well as in person, turned email/messaging, turned in person, turned clothes off... I'm seeing the flip side of what many women (and men) refer to as "internet inches".

    I'm an afficianado of a few women's body parts, and quite graciously critical, if you will. Chests are not the be all, end all... but certainly a nice value-add. Kinda like, well... (not as much as here) just as there are certainly many many other qualities other than a big unit, but.... certainly a well-stated case for a gent.....same thing goes for women's chests, but to a lesser degree.

    Anyways, not one but two women have recently wound up failing via internet inches. This isn't the 'I'll never meet him' so who cares. They both ended up in a date and then some. One told me she was a 36EEEE (a la 36FF) , sent a few pictures, one of them revealing in that department. I'm thinking D, mayyyyybe DD back in the day. The one I've met before, was busty, figured a 34D, no more no less. Insisted... INSISTED she was a 36DDDD.

    The first, I know, because I was let down, and she left the room. checked the bra.... 38D. the other I don't know, but was a high C, a la 34D or 36C.
    I've seen my share and these were D on a good day.

    I know my cup sizes et al, how they are measured... a la chest measurement vs rib, etc... the differential... the actual boobs of a 32DD can be smaller than a 38C... I know all that...

    Are you saying that some women are lying about the size of their breasts online? :eek: I take it you as a breast man don't like this. :rolleyes::tongue: Welcome to the club! :smile: How do you think a size queen feels when a guy brags about his 8 thick inches and shows up with barely 6"?

    Boob wise I am not even in your ball park faceguy. I am a small to Average 36B. I can go into almost any store in the nation and buy a bra as long as it's a demi cup. :smile:

    The problem with womens apparel and lingerie is that there is no standard/universal sizing. It varies by manufacturer, mens clothes don't do this. Lingerie is slightly more standardized then dresses and jeans but not much. If I try on a new brand of bra I have to take a few sizes into the fitting room. According to that annoying skinny girl with the tape measure at Victoria's Secret I am a perfect 36B. However, I can't wear any of their Miracle bras and nothing from the Pink collection which I love. When it comes to the racier stuff they put out at this time of year I'm either a 36A, 36B, or a 34C. :eek: WTF?!?! I mean really, if designers did this to men you would riot in the streets.

    My point, and I do have one, is that I don't think all of these women were trying to scam you.

    Hey, in internet cup size I'm a 36 J - all natural! :biggrin1:

    In real life, I'm different sizes according to the bra. The official Victoria's Secret bra fitter measured me as a 38B, but I usually buy 36C and that actually fits me a bit better, I think. I still have my old 36B's too from before this last weight gain, and can still wear them although they're a bit tight. When I go anywhere (unless I'm working out) I always wear a push-up bra. I'm not trying to falsely advertise or anything - I do that more for myself than anything else. (and my clothes fit better if I wear a push-up bra too...)

    Awww FaceKing, I am sorry about your bad luck......I used to have DD's now they are merely a small D cup, due to losing a lot of weight.

    My pictures in the gallery are quite recent they all stem from July 2007 and onwards.

    I hope you find what you are looking for.

    most women really don't know what size their breasts are, so it's not a surprise that they may advertise falsely. i'd have to say that a lot of men don't have a good idea of what a D or DD looks like, the same way women don't really have a good idea of what, say, an 8 inch penis looks like.

    i have 36DD breasts, but they look proportional on me. i'm a size 10-12 and i'm 5'9", plus i have broad shoulders, so they don't look huge. my breasts on a woman who is 5'6", 125 pounds, and small shouldered would look mammoth. mine are also natural which makes them hang differently than implants, and that affects size perception as well.

    i have bras that are not my size-- 38D, 38C, etc. that i wear because i can't always find bras in my size or i have old bras lying around or whatever. as NJQT said, not all manufacturers make bras the same size.

    with all that said, there are internet breast sizes just as there are internet penis sizes.

    Wasn't meant like that. One I drug it out of, as I was curious, the "36DDDD" really put it out there.

    Moreover it was more sarcastic.. and indeed I feel for the ladies (and guys) that get the let down on length.

    ...sounds like a ol timey country western song ...."I was let down on life, let down on love, and let down on length." Ok that sucked.

    I agree that there may be differences in assumptions vs outcomes.... but when you go on record...

    Aww shucks, i'm not obsessed with it (well sorta). I've dated perfectly flat (and perfectly attractive) to larger than those two. Don't paint me as a "boob snob" ;)

    Agree, and am aware of that... but that's like a cup, maybe two.. like I mentioned a 34D in one line whilst 36C in another...or 36D.

    All=2 ... again I'm no boob snob... well ... sorta.:redface:

    I call myself 36DD because that is the size I mostly am, but sometimes I wear a 36DDD depending on the manufacturer. I don't like wearing that size because they usually aren't very pretty. As NJ said, the Victoria's Secret measuring is weird and they seem to tell you a size so that they can sell something...there is only one bra there that I can wear - the Body by Victoria full coverage even though it is small in the cup for me but since they don't offer anything larger than DD I have no choice.

    This!!

    There was an earlier thread talking about how porn affects men's perceptions of women and I think this is another example of this. I am a 34DD and have been told twice after the bra came off "I thought they'd be bigger". :confused:

    It seems if your boobs aren't LEAPING off your chest or damn near blowing your bra off then you just aren't as big as they thought. :mad:

    On the flip side, I'm sure bra sizes, much like penis sizes, tend to get exaggerrated just a wee bit on the internet. :tongue:

    Actually, I buy a lot of my bras at Lane Bryant because they actually fit my breasts very well. I have one bra from VS that I like a lot, but I still tend to pop out of the cups toward the inside. One thing with VS bras that I have trouble with is the shaped ones seem to be shaped for breasts that have no hang to them-- so I've always got a little bit of a weird room like my nipple should be pointing into the air to fit in the bra correctly.

    Ah, well. This is reminding me that I need to go bra shopping soon for a bra for a dress I just bought. Shit.

    OMG! LOL, Lane Bryant bras I can wear as a footbal helmet. :biggrin1: At VS the Body by Victoria line fits me perfectly as do most of their demi cup bras. The full coverage bras tend not to fit me as well be cause my breasts have a gentle slope to them; (this is not sagginess fellas) and I end up with an area that puckers or wrinkles on the bra. My boobs actually fit perfectly into a champagne glass. :wink:

    That was kinda my point/sarcasm. Doesn't shock me, but just happened to me in person, twice in a row. Maybe cause I had to know, I deserved it... :smile:
