I've had 3 or 4 from leia which have all been Freya and are very comfy when I put them on but by late afternoon/evening feel like they are digging under my armpit or into my rib. I think that they seem to have wires that go too far into my armpit. I can't really get to bravissimo as that means Oxford Street and I'm disabled. I'm up for getting a bunch online and trying at home but I don't really know where to start! Help please
I've had the same problem with Freya bras and, to a certain extent, Panache though not as bad. I find the Curvy Kate bras don't dig under my armpits. It's got something to do with the spacing of your breasts on your chest I think. I'm a 34 GG and have a very muscled back and broad shoulders (swimmer).
Freya bras tend to be wide. Panache vary between styles but for relatively narrow wires try Cleo marcie, Cleo lily/millie/Minnie and sister cuts, bravissimo kiss kiss, and bras by ewa michalak, comexim and kris line. You might like some panache, try floris, jasmine and idina
I've sent both the Marcie and lily back. I'm very bony between the boobs and the wire came up too high and dug in. Are any of the other suggestions going to be better for this? I'm best in Balconette styles for shape. Is this the holy grail?!
That is sometimes a problem with Cleo, the wires are firm. I used to have the same problem, ended up just sort of breaking myself in I think! You might want to try ewa michalak, as most panache are the same way. Apart from the central wires hurting how was the fit?
