Bra advice please

I have recently lost a fair bit of weight and desperately need new bras. I have measured myself and am 33 underneath and 40-41 around the boobs. Any idea what size I should be looking for? I was thinking 32 F - does that sound right? I haven't bought any bras for ages .

Did you take the overbust measurement leaning forward as described here on the fitting guide?

If you did then I'd suggest trying a 32FF/G and a 34F/FF

Thank you - yes, I was leaning over. Will go out tomorrow and try a few on. I was thinking of Debenhams rather than M&S.

Stay away from M&S as their bras are inconsistently sized and poor quality for larger cups. Debenhams would be a better bit in terms of selection as they tend to stock brand like Freya, Fantasie, Panache, Curvy Kate etc which are designed for larger busts. Their fitting service is variable though so I'd probably just go for a try on approach!
