...and she was so happy that her boobs were where they were supposed to be.
My fabulous, dear friend knows about my unhealthy obsession with other people's boobs support of the bra intervention threads and showed me her new purchase in situ.
To give them credit, she measures 31 underneath and they'd put her in a 32 band. BUT I could pull it away from her a long, long way. She measured over boobs and it makes her at least a FF or G cup. M&S had put her in a D cup. She had massive overspill by and under her arm, the wires weren't flush. I got her to scoop madly and there was no way the cup could hold all of the breast tissue.
We are returning the bras next week and will show the fitters a thing or two
I know that Stats really likes that CK bra. I tried it and whilst it's very pretty indeed, it was just to wide and shallow in the cups. The longline bit kept ruching up too. Just not a good shape for me which was disappointing!
The Carmen is a little wide and shallow for my boobs but I kept it anyway for...well...
However I do like particularly narrow deep cups anyway, and having tried a fair few curvy Kate it's a lot less wide and shallow than they normally are ime. This one is a just a little off whereas I have a bikini from then which is about 1.5"wider in each cup.
You might consider sizing down in the band as I found this helped
