I have bust envy...

Ridiculous I know, but all my friends seem to have fantastic cleavages and I feel left out!

It's the way my boobs are set. I can't get that 'two boobs lying next to each other' look, there's about an inch gap in the middle.

They say I'm lucky that I can wear a polo neck without looking matronly (I don't get the monoboob look) but I'd love to wear a v-necked t-shirt and actually have a cleavage in the gap, like this: (\)(/) rather than going (.)\/(.).

Is there a specific style of bra that would help that? I think mine are balconettes.

Ok, first off, are you sure you're wearing the right size? It is a bra style issue but if the size is wrong, you've not got a hope!

Have a look at and check.

Let me know the size and I'll suggest some good bras

28GG I think, I was fitted at Bravissimo as a 30F, but I spilt over the cups quite badly and was finding it pulled up at the back. The 28GG seems better.

I know I have Panache Idinas, but not sure what else!

That's fine, it sounds like you've looked at it sensible. Just checking you weren't a 30G stuffed into a 36C as thats's a hiding to nothing!

Ok, options to try:

Wonderbra d-g t shirt bra. This starts at a 30, but IME runs tighter than panache by a fair bit so definitely worth a shot in the 30G or 30FF and worked very well for a wide set friend.
Bravissimo Satine - runs smaller in the cup so try the 28GG and maybe the 28H
Curvy kate- tease me/wild/a few others that look the same cut. Also small in cup, almost certainly up to the H. Flaunt is one of them, and you can see the model has quite a wide gap
Freya Deco/Deco honey/hatty - it's moulded so depends if it suits your boob shape otherwise but can give pretty spectacular cleavage when used properly!
Panache porcelain plunge - fairly standard panache sizing I think

I'd suggest, if possible, trying pretty much all of these. Most people seem to find that one of these is a great plunge for them, but it's a case of trying it to see!

Thank you, I will have a shopping trip!

Those look great on the pictures, hopefully one will look as good on me grin

The Satine gives good cleavage!

Well, I went and had success! I have the Satine in black and the Deco Hattie, and they both fitted me really well smile Thank you for all the suggestions.

I tried on a Cleo Millie as well which gave me an absolutely fantastic cleavage, but they didn't have quite the right size for me. I was either spilling out of one cup or the lace on the other was folding over nothing! I'm tempted to order it myself and see what it's like in the right size.
