Really confused and frustrated with my bra fitting! Help me please!

I have tried endless fittings and types. I have awful bras that cut in multiple places. If I get a padded one it sticks out of my top. I'm at a complete dead end. Can anyone help?

First of all, measure yourself according to this method

Then report back smile

40B I get. Did you have the tape measure quite tight for the under bust measurement? What sizes have you been trying?

Wow! Completely different. I wore 36c for ages and then 36b and after having my baby I went to 36b again.

I got measured in Debenham and they said I was a 38a but had too much trouble finding that. I have been so very uncomfortable. confused

Sorry forgot to answer your questionquestion. I had the tape quite snug for the under measurement

If 36 fits then I wouldn't get a larger back size. Are you sure your under bust measurement is accurate? Can you remeasure or get someone to do it for you

36 now cuts in to my skin. It is uncomfortable.

Fweebs33 Sun 08-Nov-15 17:58:18

I will remeasure

Could be to do with the cup size being too small rather than the back being too tight.

Fweebs33 Sun 08-Nov-15 18:06:31

Okay thanks. I will try again and let you know. It's just very annoying as I can't get it right.

Try the 36 on back to front and see how the band feels - measurement is just a starting point

Try a 40B, good luck!
