    What would be the French equivalent of a double D-size bra? (Strange question, I know... :eek:)

    I think they use the same cup sizes in France as they do in the US.

    I think their ribcage sizes start with 80 though. (So an 80 would be a 30 or 32...I don't remember now. Then they go up in increments of five so 85, 90, and so on.)

    Just to let you know, I think their cup sizes are a bit smaller than they are in the US. (in my experience anyway)

    Well, I just found a webpage that says that the french go from size D directly to size E. So a double D in the US equals an E in france.

    85 = 32
    90 - 34
    95 = 36

    Cup size above D depends on the brand. Cup size can go D, DD, E, lor D, E, F. I think one or two even go DDD, but thats rare. You have to know the brand or ask a sales person. And 85=32.
