Ladies with cup sizes larger than a D cup, how many times have you gone bra shopping and not been sure what cup size letter is yours? A 38E, 38F and 38DDD can all be the same cup size!

This I would expect from a dress off the rack but not a custom made couture gown, and not on uber styled people like Beyonce!
