Sister sizes have the [http://www.cupmysize.com/bra-sister-size/ same cup volume] as each other. The difference of band size simply changes the fit.

Sister sizes have the same cup volume as each other. The difference of band size simply changes the fit.
   
 
Typical [[Offline retailer|stores]] suggest sister sizes to sell their limited inventory to the customer, as opposed to a bra that actually fits. This perpetuates the problem of most women wearing band sizes too large, with correspondingly wrong cup sizes.<ref name=wp/>

It is not recommended to wear a bra any more than one sister size away from your ideal bra size.<ref>[http://reddit.com/r/ABraThatFits/comments/25zael/quick_running_out_to_the_store_and_i_need_to/ ''reddit'': quick - running out to the store and i need to check sister sizes!]</ref><ref>[http://reddit.com/r/ABraThatFits/comments/16xsgk/how_well_do_altered_bras_support/ ''reddit'': How well do altered bras support?]</ref> This is because, while, for example, sister sizes 34FF, 36F, 38E, 40DD, and 42D all hold the same volume, the bras are designed for very different body shapes. The higher in band/lower in cup you go, the [[Breast shape#Shallow|shallower]] and wider the cup becomes. If the bra band is altered to be smaller, the way the cup fits will change and the straps also start out further.<ref>[http://reddit.com/r/ABraThatFits/comments/1bib1o/i_think_im_going_to_give_some_homemade_bra_band/c97ad20 ''reddit'': comment by tinkikiwi in 'I think I'm going to give some homemade bra band alterations a try...']</ref> The lower in band/higher in cup you go, the more projected and [[Breast shape#Narrow|narrow]] the cups get. The more [[Bra extender|extenders]] used, the further out the [[Bra anatomy#Straps|straps]] lay, which can cause them to constantly slide off your shoulders as they now sit closer to the arms rather than the shoulder blade.
