I'm no expert but it looks OK to me but that's only from the front, you might need to post side and back views to get a proper idea. Measuring is only a guide on where to start but if you measure 28 under bust then a 32 is going to be too loose on most women and obviously as band size goes up cup letter comes down for same volume.
Ah, H&M don't do a small enough band for me (30DD) which is ridiculous as many of their shoppers must be 28, 30 or even 26 bands.
I used ro wear the ubiquitous 34B.
From the side you can see how the cup sits ON your breast, it's not enclosing the breast. The extra inches in the band are compensating for this as the band has to stretch too far forwards. Not sure if that makes sense - it is hard to describe!
This is great info, thank you. I may order a 28 in a few different cups and have a try-on. Are there any rules about cup style? I like balconette bras but I've already proved my lack of knowledge on best fit for shape!
