Matium. I don't think you know what you are talking about. So, let's make it simple. The number - 32, 34, 36, 38 and so on is the measurement of the circumference of the body taken around the chest under the breasts. A ,B, C, D, DD etc is the measurement of the cup size. In other words the size of the tits. For example, a woman who measures 42B has smaller tits than one who measures 34 DD. It's all in the cup size not the number. Hope that clarifies the issue.
The measuremnt below the bust taken away from the measurement around the bust works out the cup size. So a 42B is probably very similar in size to a 34DD

What should a correctly fitted bra look like?
•Cups - breasts should be comfortably encased in the cups with no bulging or gaping at the top or the sides.
•Wires should lie flat against the rib cage and not dig in.
•Band - this should be level all the way round, not riding up at the back.
•Straps - these should run parallel at the back and not dig in to the shoulders.
To check your bra size, you need only take two measurements which are:
1. Underbust Measurement
Measure under your bust and:
add 4ins. if the measurement obtained is an even number of inches or
add 5ins. if the measurement obtained is an odd number of inches.
(For example, if your underbust measurement is 31ins., add 5ins. to obtain bra size 36, or, if your underbust measurement is 30ins. add 4ins. to obtain bra size 34.)
2. Overbust Measurement
Measure round the fullest part of your bust to determine cup size.
If the bust measurement is:
same as your bra size, your Cup size is A.
1in. more gives Cup size B
2in. more gives Cup size C
3in. more gives Cup size D
4in. more gives Cup size DD
5in. more gives Cup size E
and so on through F, FF and G
Underbust measurement of
29in. + 5in. = bra size 34
Overbust measurement of
34in. = Cup A
So the correct fitting would be 34A
