I think that just about covers it Sorrel grin

OK then...quick hijack please...which of these is best for breast which are bottom heavy (though am a 32FF not the 34GG). Anything full cup is just empty and baggy at the top...

FindMeAPixie Sun 25-Jan-15 17:50:59

ooo and forgot to say - can have an underarm fat/breast seepage issue low and wide breasts please...(god I sound like a rude playground song) flowers and grin

Findmeapixie - have you double checked your bra size using this method?

I like half cup bras - one of my faves is the Bravissimo Betty atm, and am def bottom heavy. I'm a 30FF

Ooh thanks sorrel grin

I've ordered 4, hopefully one will fit nicely!

FindMeAPixie Sun 25-Jan-15 18:06:39

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.

Freya deco best ever
Bet you're not that size tho wink

StatisticallyChallenged Sun 25-Jan-15 18:58:52

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

FindMeAPixie Sun 25-Jan-15 19:38:36

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. flowers

I don't actually own any white bras any more as I've found that nude/fesh colour is much better under white/light coloured tops. White bras just sort of 'glow' and show through.

Hmm sorrel, I have never ever owned a flesh/nude coloured bra! I don't know why but I have an aversion to them.

Mind you not owned a white bra or white t shirt for years either!

YourHandInMyHand Mon 26-Jan-15 22:02:52

I bought this bra a few weeks ago and it's bloody lovely on!

No good under a white top though. grin
