What is Women's Average Bra Size?

Average Bra Size in US and UK:

What is actually the average bra size? It is difficult to answer that question, because different surveys have different conclusions. But many different sources report these average bra sizes in US and UK:

US: 36C
UK: 36D

 
 
 

European Bra Size Survey:

The underwear company Triumph's European Bra Size Survey from 2007, is also a guideline to what the average bra size is in different countries. The survey is showing how many women who wear bra sizes A, B, C and D in selected countries in Europe:

Netherlands 36 % 27 % 29 % 8 %
Belgium 28 % 28 % 35 % 9 %
France 26 % 29 % 38 % 7 %
Sweden 24 % 30 % 33 % 14 %
Greece 23 % 28 % 40 % 9 %
Switzerland 19 % 24 % 43 % 14 %
Austria 11 % 27 % 51 % 10 %

Large numbers?

Do you find these numbers large? Women's average breast size is actually increasing fast (due to weight gain in the population)! I.e. in the UK, the average bra size has increased from 34B to 36D in just a few years(!), according to The Guardian.

In US, The New York Times says that "many women - to their shock or glee - are finding that DD is becoming the new C".

Bra Size Map per Country:

TargetMap has developed a "Bra Size Map", showing the bra size in all countries of the world. We can not guarantee the accuracy of this bra size map, so do not take it too seriously. But it will give a guideline. And it is very funny reading as well. Enjoy!
