Ever have one of those frustrating bra shopping experiences? You know, the trips where you try on pair after pair but nothing really fits?

It turns out, you’re not alone. In a survey conducted by British high street store Debenhams, it was revealed that 78 percent of women have been squeezing into bras that were smaller than the size they should be wearing. That’s a pretty hefty percentage of uncomfortable women…

The survey also found that British busts have actually grown significantly in the past two years — three whole sizes, to be exact. Back in 2010, Debenhams reported that their best-selling size was a 34B. But, by 2012, the 34DD bras were the ones flying off the shelves the fastest. (We assume that the “boob map” will be updated accordingly.)

Another interesting find was that women aren’t just physically increasing their bust size; they’re shopping to create their aspirational figures. The retailer reported that 70 percent of their bra sales this year have been for padded and push-up bras compared to 36 percent in 2010.

I am not sure about other GhanaCelebrities.Com’s female readers but I can so much relate to the above. For some years now, I have been squeezing into  C cups but they were too tight.

Currently, I am wearing D cups and even those are also small…Am I alone? Hope not :-)

    Question to the writer It always has occurred to me that at times women’s boobs sometimes look bigger than they actually are. 
    A friend of mine has big boobs, once I saw her after a long time and she had absolutly gigantic boobs, some time later I saw her and she just had big boobs. I’ve seen girls with small boobs that sometimes have big looking boobs?  Is it because of 1. Period and hormones that women’s boobs swell and look swollen but this is just due to they’re period or oestrogen level.

     2. how tight the bra is 

    3. Or they way the straps are adjust

    @Dr. Miyagi, in most cases its period/menstrual cycle and hormones that causes the increase in boobs n in other cases its just the tightness of the bra

    @nana aba,I believe it does Here’s my Recipe: a glass of water, teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon olive oil, half teaspoon of sugar. Massage it every morning and evening for for weeks and you will see some good result it also a nice gives you a form or another way to make breast larger is eating papaya. Make a milkshake, milk and papaya. Also sesame seeds help them get bigger. You should also massage the top of your breast to keep the circulation going to enhance your breasts.

    U SEE ITS IGNORANCE, AM EVEN À VICTIM, SOMETIMES SOME OF US THINK THE SMALLER THE BRA THAN OUR ORIGIONAL BREAST SIZE, THE MORE HEAPED OUR BREASTS ARE. THIS IS TOTALLY WRONG!
