Hey  
I'm looking for articles/blog posts that explain why the common misconceptions about bra sizing are wrong. I know there are several that I've read, I just neglected to bookmark them and now can;t find them.

Help?

This one summarizes the most important ones pretty well
http://www.knickersblog.com/top-five-bra-sizing-myths/699

On the other hand, this review is pretty extensive but makes great points (I think it's been written by one of the members here)

Not the ones I was thinking of (There's the one with that size chart that shows the actual ranges and the VS ranges... there's also one explaining why sister sizes don't work with a cupcake analogy- volume vs a 2D measurement...)
Nonetheless, helpful. Thanks!

Ah, I think that one that talked about cupcake frosting was in this blog, http://theprettyyear.com/ sadly it seems to be down. I think she's on here too :P (there's a review of that post here though

There's a related post I wrote about why cups vary on band size here http://bra.pe/EBT :P and on the Sanikomania and Balkonetka blogs they also talk about how cups are different by band.

I'm sure I've seen many of the charts you describe, I'll see if I can find some later, I have tons of those bookmarked :P

I read one that mentions VS, but it doesn't have a size chart: http://www.ugcs.caltech.edu/~cat/bra.html.
