Bra Intervention (sorry another)

So armed with measurements I went to Debenhams and confidently told the assistant I was a 34DD or E. "No no no you are a 36 or a 38" she said assertively. She brought bra after bra that I could have fitted friends in with me until we finally settled on....a 34DD.

All well and good but it seems i have a funny rib cage and the underwires dig in underneath they seem to be too curved if that makes sense? I need a wider curve almost. She said it was impossible. I ended up with an uncomfy but well fitting in other ways pretty blue bra, and a non underwired frumpy but comfy tshirt bra.

Is there such a thing that will fit? Anyone got a clue? Certainly not in Debenhams because I tried all theirs on!

It sounds like you might need a bra rhat has a wire that is shaped more like a 'U' than a 'c'. Try Panache/Cleo styles like the Marcie

Bravissimo, Brastop and Figleaves are great internet bra sites. Lots of choice and different styles.
