The appearance of 38C breasts can depend on several factors, including breast size, body type, and breast tissue density.
In general, women with 38C breasts are usually a full cup size, and they often do not need tight pads or a push-up effect to achieve this size. This size often provides a more pronounced cleavage compared to smaller sizes.
Also, due to the larger frame and weight distribution, women with 38C breasts may notice some sagging over time. This is due to the fact that their breasts have more volume in relation to the size of the strap. However, this can sometimes be alleviated by wearing standard bras designed for high-impact sports and using supportive inserts or body shaping products when necessary.

It is important to realize that each lingerie company uses a different sizing system. This means that a 38C bra from one brand may be different from a 38C bra from another brand.
It is important to realize that cup and waistband sizes are relative. For example, B cups on larger straps, such as a 42, are actually smaller in volume than C cups on smaller straps, such as a 30. Cup size is volume, not actual breast size.
