Hopefully one of you lovely ladies can help, looked at the other bra interventions and measured myself and got 28 under and 37 over and I think that makes me 28 ff? Is that correct? Currently wearing 32 d on the tightest hooks feels ok but slight spillage and not sitting flush at the front. I have constant neck and back pain and wondering if boobs could be why
Greetings! It sounds like the cup is too small and the band too big. I'd suggest trying sizes around 28G.
The band on a new bra should be done up on the loosest hooks.
Your 32D has the same cup volume as a 30DD and a 28E. If you've got spillage and the centre gore isn't lying flat then you definitely need more space, probably at least two or three cups worth. That would tie in with something around a 28G.
Thanks ladies I tried a few last week 30 dd being one of the sizes but it was tiny and gave me back fat even though I'm quite slim. I went from a 34 b about 7 years ago in the old measuring style to 30 d measured in debenhams but had a boy and put on weight since then. Even 30 d / dd are quite hard to find any choice so god knows where I will find a 28g ?!
Yep... you could well be a 28FF or even a G! I was wearing a 32D before going into a shop called tinks pretty things in Chichester and although the lady took her time I came out a 28G. She's a bit of a laugh too!
I know this is an old thread, but can't find a new one! I measured just over 33" under my bust and 38" - what size would that make me? I've given up on bras, as was (I thought) 34/36A for years but always found them uncomfortable around my chest/back and Gapey on boobs of i moved my shoulders or bent over!!! The only time I had s comfortable bra was just after my son was born and I got measured in john Lewis for nursing bras! Please help
