bra intervention needed

went for a fitting in JL, came away with own brand 30f but not sure. 2 in same style but I swear the darker one in sale is fractionally small.

fantasie Rebecca is my bra but £41 too much, bras purchased are similar but metal fastening and come up slightly small, 30 ff felt too big.

my breasts are wide so I am quite hollow but heavy at sides and underneath quite rounded, sometimes the gores dig in on me.

would curvey Kate suit me, also has anyone's boobs got smaller with weight loss, hopeful, pile of hardly worn 30 E bras

If you measure using this guide

Then post your measurements someone more knowledgable than me will be along shortly to help you out I'm sure.

Thanks 30 under

tbh pretty sure cup size is correct as I was in 30 e before, more advice on different makes

Can't help with the bras but my boobs have definitely got smaller with weight loss. I've lost 11lbs and gone down a band size (not what you want if you've got bras waiting) and 1-2 cup sizes.

Yes on the weightloss. I was 32G and after 18 pounds lost I'm now 30F or FF depending on style.

Try eBay for the Rebecca, lots there for cheaper (brand new).

I am slim but in my late 40s and have gained fat round my tummy and boobs have got bigger. I was 30dd 5 years' ago.

I have just put on one of the new JL bras and it has made a difference, my scoop neck t shirt looks better, I didn't realise that I had outgrown my E cups.

I was thinking of Panache bras as well, if I usually wear Fantasie, would they work. I have had them before. Triumph Amourette was excellent too but I think it only went down to 32 back.

think mine do have that ski ramp look as discussed on another thread as the fullness is underneath and they are wide spaced.
