Bigger tits for Lara Croft

Not to mention, Lara's bust size would probably result in a broken collar bone if she was real and tried any of those moves (honest, it happens). Rumour has it that scientists are trying to create bras so well endowed women stop causing bodily harm when doing exercises.

My wife is currently a 34G, but since she's only just started feeding our newborn daughter, and judging by the effects of feeding our previous two, she'll get larger over the coming months.



And Lara's about that size. Give or take.

After reading the "Bigger Tits for Lara Croft" article I suddenly became very interested in bra sizes just as any other straight man. After a bit of scouring for "Bra measurements" on a few search engines that didn't point to Porn I found a page that explains bra sizes.



I just thought that you'd like to take a look - no pictures or anything, just an intresting read. After reading the FAQ, I personally believe Angelina Jolie can wear a 36D and I'd be happy to verify this with John if he needs help.

Apparently Lucy Sherriff has not measured herself accurately under the boobs. The number in bra size is *related* to that measurement, but it is not actually that measurement. I believe that officially the number in the bra size is the measurement under the boobs plus five inches (I could be off by an inch).



Why the complexity, you ask? Women's quoted bust measurements are around the breasts, not under. Bra manufacturers don't want a 36-24-36 woman to have to tell her lover that she takes a size 31C bra, so they artificially add a constant 5 inches to the bra measurement, so that the number sort of sounds like the bust measurement, even though it really isn't. The number is in fact designed to be almost equal to the bust size for a woman who wears a C or B cup. That way, people think it's not confusing and they think they understand it, even though in reality it is quite confusing and they don't understand it.

Thank you for keeping us readers abreast of the situation involving all modifications and enhancements of Lara Croft.



I've never played Tomb Raider myself, but was nonetheless intrigued by the notion that she'd star in a new kind of game featuring other characters as well.

Would this be the type of game where her newly rounded breasts (and tail) would be put to ...ahem... good use?

It's amazing what you can find on the internet...



Correct description of how to measure bra sizes.

A fitter will measure your ribcage just beneath your breasts, and add 4 inches (102mm) to calculate your frame size. So, if your ribcage measures 32 inches (813mm), your bust will be a 36. A fitter will then assess your cup size according to experience and understanding of the brands at their disposal.

One way to get a rough idea of your cup size is to measure your breasts at the part where they are fullest, with a bra on. If the figure is the same as your frame size, then you are an AA cup. Up to 1 inch (25mm) more and you're an A cup, up to 2 inches (51mm) makes you a B, 3 inches (76mm) a C, 4 inches(102mm) a D, and so on.

This whole size thing was done by Dennis Publishing's now defunct Escape magazine. The guys on that magazine after visiting a number of retailers, settled on the 32HH (if I remember correctly) estimate provided by an assistant in John Lewis.
