34C Breast Size
C cup breasts are considered to be a fairly average cup size for women’s breasts, but assuming a woman’s relative breast size by her cup size is not always accurate. Cup sizes do not remain consistent across different band sizes, which means that a woman with 34C breasts has much larger breasts than someone with a 30C bra size. Cup sizes are determined in proportion to a woman’s band size, so a woman with 34C boobs has nearly identically sized breasts as a woman with a 32D bra size. In this example, the woman with the 34C cup size has a slightly larger frame than the woman with the 32D size. A 34C is comparable in size to the following sizes as well: 30DD bra size, a 36B bra size, or a 38A bra size. It is important to get measured properly to determine which size bra provides optimal support since there are multiple sizes which may «fit» a woman, but do not actually fit perfectly.
In addition to cup and band size, a woman’s bodily proportions can change the appearance of the relative size of her breasts. Considering this, 34C breasts can appear to be fairly prominent or relatively small on different women. For example, if a woman is a «pear shape» (defined as carrying most of her weight in her bottom half) 34C boobs would look somewhat small from the front since her hips are noticeably wider than her upper body. If this same woman carried very little body fat in her stomach, her 34C breasts would look fairly prominent when viewed from the side. If a woman were shaped like an «apple» (defined as carrying her body fat primarily in her stomach), 34C boobs could actually look very small since there would be little definition between her breasts and stomach. If an extremely slender and narrow hipped woman had 34C breasts, her breasts would look relatively large on her frame since her ribcage and breasts would appear larger.
Like all breasts, 34C natural breasts come in a variety of shapes. 34C breasts may hang lower or higher on a woman’s chest depending on her age, genetics, and lifestyle. Although 34C boobs are not large enough that sagging is inevitable for every woman, they are large enough that women with natural 34C breasts may be concerned about the possibility of sagging. In general, the most important factors that would influence sagging in a woman with natural 34C breasts would be changes in weight and age. Gaining or losing weight quickly is more likely to result in sagging breast tissue than maintaining a stable weight or experiencing gradual changes in weight. In addition, age is an important factor because the skin’s elasticity decreases during aging. For women with natural 34C boobs who want to prevent their boobs from sagging, or who just want to add more lift to their breasts, sometimes breast implants or a breast lift are pursued as surgical solutions. Whether or not a woman with natural 34C breasts pursues a breast augmentation, she should always make sure to wear a properly supportive bra, especially during exercise.
34C breasts with implants can be the result of either a woman with naturally smaller breasts inserting implants to increase her size up to a 34C, or a woman with natural 34C breasts inserting a small implant to make her natural bust more full and perky. If a woman is hoping to achieve a natural look with breast implants, she should opt for a size that is within one or two cup sizes of her natural size. Considering this, women with natural 34A, 34B, or small 34C breasts would appear to have a relatively natural looking bust if they opted to have a breast augmentation to achieve a full 34C size. Women with a 34AA bust, however, would be more likely to look obviously surgically enhanced if she were to request implants that would bring her up to a 34C. It is more difficult to achieve a natural looking 34C augmentation from a small size like 34AA because the woman would be unlikely to have enough skin on her chest to allow the implants to sit comfortably. As Jennifer Walden MD explains «the most challenging patients are those with small breast bases and tight tissues.» When a woman has small breasts and tight tissues, it is more difficult to dramatically increase the size of her breasts because there is not very much space or flexibility for a large implant.
The appearance of 34C breasts with clothes on depends a lot on a woman’s body shape, the bra that she chooses to wear, and her clothing choices. Regardless of body type, wearing a push up bra with a tight top will make the breasts appear more noticeable than wearing no bra and a baggy sweatshirt. Generally speaking, the thinner a woman is in her midsection, the larger her breasts will appear proportionally because fabric lays across the part of the body that protrudes furthest. 34C breasts are relatively easy to dress because they are not large enough that a woman would tend to need to size up her clothing to accommodate her breast volume if she has an average size body. In contrast, a woman with a 34F bra size and average body size would most likely need to buy dresses and tops that were larger and tailor her clothing to fit her body. Having said that, a very slender woman with 34C breasts may need to buy a larger size to accommodate her breasts and then have the extra fabric taken in if she prefers a more form fitting look. Having a 34C breast size can be ideal if a woman wants to have a lot of control over how her breasts appear in clothes. A 34C size is large enough that a woman could wear a padded push up bra and enjoy having extremely dramatic cleavage, but without worrying about the back problems that often accompanies naturally enormous breasts. On the other hand, a 34C is small enough that a woman could wear an unlined bra, or a compression bra, and create an understated look with her bust.
A 34C bra will be noticeably larger than that of smaller cup sizes with the same band size. For example a woman with 34A size breasts could wear a very flimsy bra as there is very little to support, but a woman with a 34C bust would need to wear a bra with support. Boobs that require a 34C cup size are most likely the size of a handful; a 34B would be almost a handful (about 3/4); a 34A would be a small bump.
Although every woman’s breast appearance is unique, sometimes it is interesting and reassuring to see how other women’s breasts look when they share the same size. Below is a list of some celebrities with 34C boobs to show women with a 34C cup size that they are in good company!
