Right, I have been on the bra threads, seen the error of my ways and ordered a huge selection of bras from bra stop, different makes and a couple of sizes that might work within each make.

I am a 32E without a doubt, (32/38) all the 34DD look awful, I don't think I would ever shoehorn myself into a 30F.

However, I have one tit bigger than the other and in all these bras it is really noticable.

Right tit - perfect fit

Left tit - double boobage

I have jiggled and swept and smoothed.

What do I do? and why is it so much more noticable than it is in all my crappy badly fitting 36C's? (though all of those are non-wired).

You need to fit to the larger boob, and help the smaller one with a strategic hoik or a chicken fillet.

TBH bra-fitting is a bit like breastfeeding support: at-a-distance guidane is never quite as good as face-to-face.

Urgh posted too soon!

Meant to add that you ought to get yourself fitted at John Lewis or Bravissimo - they're the best IME.

Totally agree about the face-to-face thing, but don't have access to anywhere decent.

Have you go a local independent department store near you? Lots of them tend to stock a real range of makes including all those on bravissimo etc - if you are an E cup I'd go for anything by fantasie or freya - I'm a 34E and after years of research wouldn't find a better fit from any other make - they definitely give the best support and shape.

I would recommend giving their moulded t-shirt bra a go as it seems to come up slightly larger (perhaps because it is moulded) and therefore it wouldn't notice if you have uneven boobs.

yup, take the bra that fits the bigger tit and stuff a chicken fillet into the other side. And if 32E gives you a double boobage on left side, you have to try 32F. moulded is a good idea as well, like blabla recommedned, again take the size that fits the bigger one.

Right will re-order in 32Fs and 34Es and will see how I get on.
