However, there is also something known as “sister sizing”. This simply refers to bras with the same cup size but different band size. When we look at sister sizing, we realize that 36A is the sister size to 32C, i.e, the two bras have the same cup size.

And since we known 32C is bigger than 32B, therefore, it is correct to say that 36A is bigger than 36B.
