Was advised on thread to try 36dd/e.
Measurements are 37 under and 42 over.
The dd cuts in as does the e.
The f leaves gaping spaces by tops of arms when I bend down.
Out tonight and need a new bra!

I suggest you go to Bravissimo - very helpful sales assistants and you should be able to find something in the right size for you.

Try various different brands and styles.

Panache and Freya are good brands for bigger boobs. Try balconette or half cup as well as full cup styles.

If you're near a bravissimo then get fitted in there.

Thanks. I was in a crappy shopping area with crappy cheap shops. Got one in matalan that I think fits.
Will definitely try bravissimo soon though. So fed up of not having proper fitting bras!
