I have same problem. I wear primadonna bras in deauville style. But to be perfectly honest initially the straps stay put but after a while I have to do the back strap up at the tighter hook to prevent straps falling down.

Are you sure you are wearing the correct band size?

I had this issue. Then read one of the bra intervention threads, went down a back size and up a couple of cup sizes and voila - no slipping straps!

Yup slipping is often due to the band being too big

So it's the back strap? I'm surprised at that, as I'm wearing a 34" and I'm a size 16, I've got one bra in a 32" and it's really uncomfortable

I'll have a look at that style ggirl, thanks

Are there any other brands/styles that are better than others?

I'm a 14ish in a 30 but I'm heading for a 28. perfectly possible.

Im a 10 with narrow shoulders and wear a 30HH - boux avenue measured me and their Chloe style is great.

I have sloppy narrow shoulders and just have to wear multiway or racer back bras all the time. I wear Panache from fig leaves normally as I'm 32gg which limits my choices.

I also used to have this problem as I am quite petite apart from my bosomage. I am now in a 32H and no more slippage! Give your measurements and let one of the expert ladies size you.
