Keeping this in consideration, is a DDD the same as an E?

AA(Double A) is the smallest cup size, then it goes upto A, B, C, and then D. After D you can either go up to DD(DoubleD) or its equivalent **E**, **DDD**(Triple D) is the next cupsize which turns to be the equivalent of F. Once you hitF/**DDD** you continue to go up letters like what was donebefore.

Beside above, is D cup considered big? However on a standard 32 band size, a DDD is what Iwould consider **large**. An A-C or even **D cup** could be**considered** small, and a **D**-DD **cup** is average.Go where you will from that and the ratios to other band sizes, a34B is larger than a 32C, but smaller than a 32D.

Moreover, what do the letters mean in bra sizes?

The **letters** - like A, B, C, D - stand for cup**sizes**. The numbers - like 32, 34, 36, 38 – tell youthe band **size** – that's the part of the **bra** thatgoes around your torso. In other words, a 34A means that your boobsare an A cup and that your **bra** is 34 inchesaround.

Is a 32a small?

**32A** bra size is not so big and is on the**small** side of average. 'A' cup is **small** and the bandmeasurement is also **smaller** than average, hence consideredas a **small** bra size. The cup size increases with theincrement in the band size. Hence, **32A** is larger than 28A or30A and is **smaller** than 34A or 36A.
