Lingerie retailer Intimacy spokeswoman Kate Terhune told The Huffington Post that weight gain and breast implants have played a role in the increase.

She said that the biggest factor is that women are choosing a more appropriate size, as they are more educated about bra fit.

The chain interviewed more than 60,000 customers at its 16 stores nationwide, and compared the results to a similar study it did in 1992, Terhune said.

Far more sizes are available now than in the early '90s, meaning that comfort in a larger cup could push up the mean.

According to other news outlets, additional retailers were experiencing inflation as well.

The bestselling bra at online seller Figleaves.com is a 34E (DD) and the size demand for its Just Peachy brand had risen to 38H, Glamour reported.

Racked wrote that Italian label Cosabella had added a 38 for C, D and DDs.
