Hey, I am a long time lurker. As the title says, I need a bra intervention. My measurements are 27" under bust 31/32" over bust measured before and during period. Currently I have bras ranging from 32b 32c 30c and 30d. I have boobs that are fuller at the bottom, shallow with a wide base (making balcanette or any bras with a centre very uncomfortable). Please help, for years I thought that the front of my bra rising up was due to it being to big, this has left me with damage to my breast tissue, with a 'dent' in my breast tissue.
Are your breasts close set in the centre? If not, bottom heavy with and shallow would lend itself well to balconette generally - something like the Curvy Kate Tease me/Carmen, Freya Patsy, cleo Maddie. If you are close set it is trickier but the Bravissimo Satine is a plunge which is friendly to your breast shape, as are the Curvy Kate plunges. Cleo Neve might work too
Thanks for your replies, my boobs are close set, as in I have only a finger gap between them. I have re-measured and my under bust measurement is actually 26! (I had a cold when I first measured so can only think that can increase the rib cage? I will look at 26" bras. Although getting very confused. I have a 30d from m&s, the cup is too big. The back I just measured as 25", is this because they add the 4"? Or is it just a mess up with sizing? Gosh why are bras so confusing x
Unfortunately there are no companies currently producing 26s - 28 is as small as it gets! So I'd start with a 28D and work from there. A 28D is roughly the same cup volume as a 30C and a 32B, just on a firmer band
