See pic - it's generally worse
Size 32 dd or 34 d
Can anyone suggest styles to contain the skin

I'm no expert but my gut feeling is that thag bra looks like it comes quite high up under your armpit? Mine don't come up that high. Maybe you'd be better off not trying to contain the skin but give it more space so the top of the bra isn't digging into it?

Also not an expert but agree it looks like it's coming up very high, so you might get on better with a lower half cup/balconette style - it also looks like the cup is pinching/digging in at the outside so you might need something wider in the cup/wider spaced straps, maybe? I get something like that effect in M&S bras, which don't fit me AT ALL, because nature has kindly placed my boobs in my armpits. Definitely worth playing with cup width.

Cleo, Panache, and Mimi Holliday brands all tend to have wide cups, if that ends up working for you.

Thanks what department store has these ones to leisurely try various sizes and styles in the changing room?
I've got a post surgery bra on and so it's another few weeks yet but just exploring - good to know it might only be due to bra style.

Realised I've double posted - will report myself!

Dunno about department stores but Bravissimo has Cleo and Panache (plus loads of other brands/styles to try, I think their own-brand half cups are fairly wide as well, or at least they fit me). I've only ever bought Mimi Holliday online but I think I've seen it in House of Fraser.

I have this and hate it ! Bravissimo bras don't help as I have 3 and the fitting girl was really nice trying to help but she had to admit defeat, I will watch this thread with interest.

Yeah, if I want to wear a sleeveless top it shows front and back and looks gross.
It's not even fat or boob - just floppy skin
