Am about to place a much overdue order with figleaves. (Have a code wink)

I know there was a thread on this a while ago but I can't find it. What are the styles you suggested for shallow boobs? A 30G or 28GG.

TIA. thanks

I have a Cleo Marcie in a 28 and it's cripplingly suffocatingly tight. I might try a 30. What about the Cleo Juna? You recommend that on a lot I think. Would it be a go-er for me? I'll order a few and return the others. But I am in serious need of new 'foundation garments'. grin.

Try the Cleo Lucy, it's meant to be very good for shallow breasts. I'd order a few sizes to be on the safe side!

What on earth are "shallow boobs"??

Try all the Marie Meili bras on ASOS - the Brooklyn is great and not too push up.

Speaking a heresy, I tried the whole bra intervention thing and had to send the lot back. I wear a 32c, but it had me down as a 28e. I couldn't breathe! Even a 30d feels a bit corsety. i'd rather respirate successfully and have a less impressive chest, really...

* respire * - time for bed!

Thanks everyone.
Yes Hazel, that's the thread. Ta!
I'll try the Lucy in a few sizes so. 28 and a 30. And a few letters. It's actually the Maddie I have, it's fine, too tight tho.

I've always been a narrow size, catslave. Being on the biggish cup size I've had to wear decent proper sized bras to make sure my waist was visible! It possibly doesnt matter so much if youre a small cup size. Sorrel will probably describe shallow boobs better but they are the pear shaped boobs of the world. If you scroll thru the thread Hazel linked to, there's a post in answer to the very question. Diagrams and all!

Thanks Hazel, I couldn't find the thread!

catslave I wonder if you needed to go up in the cup? did you try the 28/30 on back to front? My Dsis measures around a 28DD but actually needs a 28FF.

No worries, someone linked to it a couple of days ago, and I had read it with interest, as the lovely Sorrel & co intervened me and diagnosed me as a fellow shallow-er.
