I'd been eyeing some new bras from Fredrick's of Hollywood. I walked in and asked if they had my size 44DD. They said yes. I'd been plotting all week on a zebra print bra with purple lace trim. Today was the day! I go in and inquire if they have my size. They do. Win! Wait. She looked at me real hard and measured. Apparently, I'm a 44DDD or a 44F.
For sure, I tried on a 42 (the biggest in the store) the cups fit perfectly but the sides were tight.
