What is equivalent to a 34d?
The cup size is generally comparable for a 34C/36B and a 34D/36C, (these are called sister sizes) however, each band size is proportional to a person's frame, and thus the corresponding cup size for each would also be made accordingly so.

Each inch represents a cup size. For example, if your band measurement is 34 inches and your cup measurement is 35 inches, the difference is one inch, and your cup size is A. If your band measurement is 34 inches and your bust measurement is 37 inches, the difference is three inches, and your cup size is C.
Underbust Measurement. To find your bra size – place a tape measure firmly around your chest and let it rest just under your bust, making sure that the tape is lying straight across your back. Pull it snug but not too tight – it shouldn't cut into your skin. Make note of your measurement in inches (e.g. 32”).
The bra size (also known as brassiere measurement or bust size) is the measure which indicates the size characteristics of a bra. Bra sizes usually consist of one or more letters indicating the breast cup size and a number, indicating a band size around the woman's torso.
A. While wearing a non-padded bra, stand straight with your arms at your sides and measure the fullest part of your bust. Make sure the measuring tape is parallel with the ground and not loose or binding. B. Find your number (inches or centimeters) and enter it in the box below.
If you measured 29 inches in your under bust, you are a 34 band size. If you measured 36 inches in your bust at fullest, going down from the 34 band size, you are a C-cup. So you are a 34C.
The letters - like A, B, C, D - stand for cup sizes. The numbers - like 32, 34, 36, 38 – tell you the band size – that's the part of the bra that goes around your torso. In other words, a 34A means that your boobs are an A cup and that your bra is 34 inches around.
"Bra" is Jamaican slang for "brother," according to the Dictionary of Jamaican English. It was first recorded in that form in 1943, which of course means that it could have been widespread in Jamaican slang by 1967-1968. Interestingly enough, "bra" is a shortened form of the Jamaican slang "bro'er" from 1907.
A cup size defines your breasts' projection or cup depth. All bra manufacturers use an alphabetical cup sizing schema that is consistent among brands up to a D cup. But, larger than a D, confusion starts. Most American manufacturers go D, DD, DDD, DDDD.
Bra size charts go down to “A”, but the smallest bra cup size commercially made (without having it custom made) is a 28AA. There are companies that will make 24 or 26 bands as a special order.
Some makers of bras in the US use the single letter method of sizing so it would be D, E, F, etc. While others use the D, DD, DDD, DDDD, etc. There are "sister sizes" with these where the measurements are the same though the cups are labeled differently. Sometimes the bra size will be labeled DD/E, etc. as well.
Bodies are not two-dimensional. Both cup size and band size need to be taken into consideration in bra sizing; the volume of the cups in a small band size will be significantly less than the same cup size with a large band. A 12G bra is a different animal altogether from a 22G bra.
She currently wears a US size 52I bra, the largest made, but by American bra estimation, her measurements would put her in a 48V bra, which is not manufactured. Annie says that her record-breaking bust began developing at the age of nine: "I just started growing, and kept right on.

It means that 36A, 34B, and 32C all have the same cup volume, but with different fitting bands. This equation is known as the 'bra matrix'. So depending on the brand and fit, you may have as many as 3 different sizes in your closet! But they will all fit the same!
The 4 inch difference in the two measurements is a D cup. A breast measurement 5 inches larger than the band size is a DD and a breast measurement 6 inches larger than the band size is a DDD. Some European brands do have E and F cups. And there is some variance in sizing among the brands.
The Big D stands for Dallas, obviously, and is used to make it stand out above the smaller "D" cities; Denver, Detroit, etc. Triple D refers to the beautiful women here, and the "bigger in Texas" idea, as well as to our richest plastic surgeons!
