The average woman says she now wears a 34DD-sized bra, according to data from lingerie retailer Intimacy. That’s up from a 34B 20 years ago! (To put that into perspective, that’s the same band measurement, but about three inches bigger around the fullest part of the chest.)

Seventy percent are down on their girls, according to research published in the International Journal of Sexual Health. Of course, most men had no complaints. Play up your décolletage so you feel amazing about it.

The current Guinness World Record for “largest natural breasts” was awarded in 1999 to a woman whose chest measured 70 inches around its fullest part. That’s 5.83 feet!

Breast Augmentation Is (Still) in High Demand
