Yes - am fully (ha) confident about the sizing. Am 31 - 31.5 around the chest (so order a 30 band too as sometimes (though not often) they are a bit stretchy and 31s feel to baggy iyswim and 39 around the hanging boobs.
Half cup/balconette do tend to work best for me - but it is the underarmage I often have problems with.
Findmeapixie, whilst it could be size it could also be that you just need quite wide wires - so wide, shallow cups. The Cleo Maddie is very wide and shallow (also runs small so size up in cups probably!) and the Cleo Juna might work. The Bravissimo Purity is also an option.
I suspect the deco might be too tall in the cups - the balconette type shapes are generally a bit kinder to bottom heaviness
Thank you. Likewise just ordered some Juna and Purity (Maddie only comes in pink/black and am OK for coloured at the moment). Am a bit like YourHand - really, ideally looking for white - but cream/nude good too.
Your expertise much appreciated. It is great knowing your size (and where you need to order up/down) but stuff like the wide/bottom heaviness is not easy to judge without your knowledge.
