We recently discovered there is a lot of male breast enhancement misinformation on the internet posted on transgender forums, including discussing how to measure your breasts correctly and what the numbers and letters mean. These male breast enhancement posts were written by men who think they are experts about all things related to transitioning. Measuring ones breasts is really quite simple and the information is readily available on any women’s lingerie website, yet wrong information still persists. Not only did we read inaccurate information on how to measure one’s breasts, one author then went on to complain about our product, despite never using it and when our customers defended us with variable types of positive type feedback they were attacked as working for us and trying to promote sales!
Male breast enhancement with a bra
First I’d like to mention because I think most of you want some male breast enhancement out of your bra; most women do too. Choose a bra that has a constructed form and a push up pad. Push up bras are the number one selling bras for women; this is what made the Wonderbra the top selling male breast enhancement bra for years. You will be less happy with a soft construction, non-padded bra that does nothing to enhance your figure.
Bras for men?
The number of the band size, 36, 38, 40, etc. is the measurement beneath your male breasts. To determine your correct size, measure under your breasts first (step A) this is your band size, then measure across your nipple at the fullest part of your breasts (Step B) this is your bra size. (Note both measurements are completely around your torso.) If you are an uneven number round up.
The number of inches between the rib cage and the fullest part of your breast determines your cup size. Males starting out in their male breast enhancement journey will have a nearly identical number between their rib cage and their breast measurement. Growing one or two inches is still not very much in the grand scheme of breast measurements. You may be a 40 and a cup size nothing, 40 under your breasts and 40 across your nipples or 41 or 42 inches across your nipples.
Subtract your band measurement (step 1) from your cup measurement (step 2). Generally each inch in difference equates to one cup size. See the cup size conversion chart below.
|If The Difference Is:||Your Male Breast Cup Size Is:|
|0″ to 1/2″ (1.3cm)||AA|
|1/2″- 1″ (2.6 cm)||A|
|2″ (5.1 cm)||B|
|3″ (7.6 cm)||C|
|3″ (7.6 cm)||C|
|4″ (10.2 cm)||D|
|5″ (12.7 cm)||DD * or E *|
|6″ (15.2 cm)||DDD * or F *|
|7″ (17.8 cm)||G *|
|8″ (20.3 cm)||H *|
|9″ (22.9 cm)||I *|
|10″ (25.4 cm)||J *|
So how do males get confused about male breast enhancement and bra sizing? The bra sizing system is NOT totally accurate. There is no perfect way to measure your male breast enhancement. A lot of other factors will affect your male bra measurements – the bra you’re wearing, the firmness of your breasts, the size of your rib cage, the broadness of your back, the narrowness of your shoulders. These factors and more can give you a false bra size once you have measured yourself. A size 40 aaa, or 42 aa doesn’t really exist for normal women. Even a 42A is not going to exist normally because overweight women have larger breasts. A size 34c and a 36B, a size 36C and a 38B, 36D and 34C can be interchanged. In the end none of these measure breast volume very well. Your breasts may be rounder and you may still wear the same bra size for quite some time but the bra cups are more filled out, you can also be between sizes and going up a cup size (letter) may work but going up a whole number and a cup size may not, think 40a to 40b, but a 42B would be too big. Think about a woman who has breast fed, she may be a 38c and look deflated and droopy another women is young and has perfectly round, firm, 38C’s. The younger woman may be able to wear a D cup sometimes and the older one may fit in a B cup, it may be a little tight but the C cup was somewhat loose because her breasts are deflated and not very full on top but the number is still the same across the nipple area.
The large numbers are more inaccurate, you may need to start your bra sizing with your base bra size and then tweaking this size based on what you don’t like about your current bra size fit. This could put you into a size that the chart says is wrong but for all of your specifics fits you. Also remember, all women have one breast larger than the other unless they have breast implants, the left breast is usually larger; this is likely going to happen to you also. If you develop with one breast smaller than the other do not worry about it, this is completely normal. Most bras were designed for the female torso and rib cage not male breast enhancement, so there is bound to be disappointment in the fit of these female bras on a male body unless you were born with a small frame like a woman.
I hope this article helps show the problem with measuring breasts both female and male. You may be feeling frustrated trying to figure out what size you are from you make breast enhancement but so are women!

My name is Victoria and I have been using Transfemme for about 7 months and have had amazing results. I have went from not even an A cup to a solid B which is absolutely wonderful. The changes in my mind have also been a welcome change. But, one thing I have noticed is that the rest of my body changed has more dramatically than my breasts. I am to the point where I can no longer wear male jeans due to the growth in my hips and the new shape my butt has taken (which I LOVE)…
Anyways I’m wondering if there is a way to slow down the growth on the rest of my body and increase the growth in my breasts?…I love your product and am about to run out, I’m just afraid my body will completely feminize but i will remain with small breasts that don’t match with the growth I’ve experienced across the rest of my body. I love your product and would enjoy ordering more, its just I cannot see myself doing that if the outcome of your product are greater than what I had bought the product for to begin with. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been floored with your product, you have changed my body and mind in the best way possible, I’d just like my breasts to catch up. Thank you for any help, you have been a tremendous help for me when it comes to letting out the woman on the inside.
Congratulations on your transformation to womanhood! We really enjoyed reading your TransFemme testimonial letter and we would love to have your photos? Can you share more about how you feel and the process you went through for the benefit of the other Transfemme customers and transsexuals?
Having a female shape is not a side effect, this is what happens to all women. You get hips, and breasts. You could look at your mothers and any sisters you have for an idea of what kind of body you will have? Almost all women have hips slightly larger than their breasts. Of course your age, what you eat and your exercise program all have an effect.
Now that you have a woman’s estrogen and testosterone levels you also have to deal with normal female pattern weight distribution. If you eat a little extra it goes to the butt and the hips! This is what almost all women deal with when they get older and even sometimes young women deal with now. The good news is your larger hips and buttocks should be maxed out by now. It’s not like they grow indefinitely to larger proportions while your boobs stay the same, that would be abnormal.
I think we should look at your diet and other health status. Please send us a copy of your dietary intake for one week, along with photographs of yourself and any blood work you have. We also need to know what your temperature is during the day and when you wake up? If your thyroid is low that could be why you have extra curves/fat on your hips and buttocks. You will also notice any male pattern baldness stops and you will not get a man’s beer belly if you gain weight.
Please also send us a list of any health problems you may have, any medication you take and all supplements you use.

Thanks for replying to me so quickly. Yes, you’re right about the Bountiful Breast/Transfemme breast pills making one feel happier. I don’t know why this is, I found this very strange, approximately 4 weeks after I started taking the male breast enlargement pills, I felt happier, as if I’d won the lottery!! Maybe you know why this is, is it because of what the ingredients are that’s in them? Also, is this the same for biological females or does this just happen to us transgender males (M to F)?
At no time have I experienced any tingling in my nipples as other T-girls have said has happened to them. And my areola haven’t increased in diameter much, maybe 5mm, which is really nothing but then again I have only used these for 23 days. But the fat is now on my breasts whereas before all I had there was skin and bone. I find this absolutely amazing that these little pills can do this to a biological male!
What Bountiful Breast has with these pills is almost as good as having a ‘genie in a bottle’, and that’s something that I’ve always wanted! You are the Magical Male to Female Genie! I am excited to see my results in a few months from now.

Yesterday was a bad day for me. As a T-girl who is just starting out, I am doing a lot of research online to help prepare me for the upcoming changes in my life. These changes have been long, long awaited! I don’t mind telling you that because I feared the judgment of others, I kept silent. I kept this from my parents, siblings and friends. So for 48 years I have lived for others and not for myself. But, no more.
Yesterday, during my research, I was on YouTube searching videos of those who are in transition. I came up on a young (25 yr old) who has been on HRT for 12-14 months. I started crying and I couldn’t stop. I cried for all those lost years, wasted years. If I had only spoken up, I might have gotten the help I needed then, that I’m finally getting now. I hope that I’m not too late to enjoy being a female.
Doing little things help, like getting a manicure/pedicure I did last week and I don’t want to cut these beautiful nails! Yesterday, after my cry session, I went to the salon that did my manicure and had the lady there wax my back and chest. It feels wonderful. Although I’ve only been on Transfemme since May13, 23 days, I believe I look like I have breasts! Thank you for listening, I will continue to post more of my results.
