Confused about bra sizing interactive online. Please help me pick the correct size.

Classic way = measure the band width, add 5 and them how many inches over is the cup size. BW=35.5, CW= 43.5 translates to a 40C the traditional way. I went to 2 different interactive sites and soma = 38DD & linda = 36H. Maidenform sized me @ US40C=UK40D=French105D=90D_international sizing. According to herroom they said, "The cup size calculation starts falling apart at 4 inches larger than your band size, and if you have droopy or pendulous breasts, your measurement will not be accurate" Then I go to 85b website and there a third measurement!!

    My women ask me. And I always tell them: Get one bra for high fallutin, get another for daily office, and get another for swinging the axe or jogging. Then go from there. Bras are personal. Buying them on line is a crap shoot. My wife needs 8.

    Side coverage is my main goal. Wear tank tops and hate having that 10 pounds stuffed in a 5 pound look. Probably scares the small children also. Thank you all. Will go in person to make sure.
