I recently posted my measurements on one of the bra threads and was told to go down 1-2 sizes in the band (from a 32 to a 28, possibly 30). I have tried on quite a few bras from Bravissimo since then (online delivery as no store nearby). I can do up the bras and they don't feel uncomfortable, although a lot tighter than I am used to. However, they do seem to make any excess skin/ fat stand out as it looks squashed. I am slim (size 8) and while not athletic, I'm certainly not flabby or untoned. The tight band seems to be accentuating any fat that I do have by squeezing it! Help.
You need to scoop It's basically a case of repositioning that in to the band.
Stand side on to a mirror (with the bra on), and lean forward a bit. Then, take your left hand, put it inside your right cup and reach round as far as you can towards your back/armpit. Pull all the excess skin/flab forward in to the cup, which will smooth out the back. Repeat on the other side
