Thank you bra interventionists. I have just gone from a 40D to a 36FF and it is amazing. Put my new bra on as soon as I got home it feels soooooooo good.

Same size as me! I used to wear a 40E. What bra did you buy? I am desperately seeking bra comfort.

It is a Freya

It is a Freya one but doesn't look like this on me. Looking at the model I wonder jf she is wearing a too small size?

I desperately need more bras but they are so expensive. And so many of them come in "normal" sizes there were hardly any FFs. FFS smile

Have a look at Brastop.com, Norma, they often have bargainous bargain bras.

The model is tiny and is probably wearing the smallest band size. Even if she was in a 30G (looks more like 30F, though), the cup volume will be a lot smaller than yours. She probably also has boobs that stand up fairly well on their own and which are fuller on top, giving a much rounder appearance.

For brands hat don't do FF, you'll need a G.

Now this one is in completely the wrong size!

And what the hell is this one doing under the armpit? It looks all puckered.

JL have done it quite well, really!

That bra is lovely but they don't have it in my size.

Can I ask ouryve if I'm a 30ff, you say try a G size, would that be a 28G or 30G? (And I was wearing a 34DD before being intervened with!)

ouryve Wed 17-Dec-14 22:07:52

In brands that skip FF (eg M&S, Triumph) you'd need (in theory) a 30G.

Thank you, I will have a try.

They are awful!
