So need to look again at sizing....

measured 32/46 on the bend over method.

Been wearing 34H/GG but have lost some weight so need to change.

Current 34GG seems to big in cup / fits flat round ribs on last hooks.

Usually wear Panache / Curvy Kate

Any suggestions what size I ought to try?

I may be completely wrong but with those measurements you'd be looking more at a 30kk (12 ins difference between under and over bust). I'd five some of those a try.

Sorrel and statistically are better at this than me though!!

OK, the weight loss and new measurements suggest to me that you need to try a 32HH. That would be one cup size bigger in volume than your current 34GG but the same as a 34H.

If you put the 34GG how far can you pull the band away from your body?

Curvy Kate are usually big in the band and small in the cup. Panache tend to run true to size and are a lot firmer.

Sorry, ignore the above sizes! Your measurements suggest trying a 32JJ. That is quite a jump in cup from a 34GG/34H. Are you scooping and if so is there any overspill?

Yes scooping.... no overspill in fuller cup / balconette styles, but some spillage in plunge.

boobs seem bottom heavy - if that makes sense - empty at top.. so when I bend forwards any 'body' to them drops to the bottom - gosh I make it sound sooooo attractive. I guess there's prob a bit of loose skin rather than breast tissue to contend with as well (and I've not lost that much weight only 6kg or so)

If I pull the 34 away from my body I can get my whole handwidth in at least between band and back.

OK, I'd try some 32GG/H/HH/Js balconettes in a few brands. The Panache Idina balconette is nice and gives good lift and the Cleo Marcie/Bella/Melissa are all good for those with more fullness at the bottom.

The Bravissimo Alana could be good for you too, try the bigger cups as it runs small I believe.

Thank you - will see how I get on!
