Desperately seeking a bra intervention....please please
I was measured a few years ago in an independent store. 30dd. Perfect. Recently I've put on nearly a stone in weight and my bras are KILLING me. I've a 30e bra and its no better. I've a 32d bra and although it's more comfortable the straps fall down/ I can pull it away from my chest so I don't think that's right either. Going by previous threads, my measurements are 29-30 under bust and 36 when boobs are hanging down. I can't go get measured properly for a few weeks but I'll buy online if I know what sizes to get. Thanks, appreciate it!
Maybe you do need the 32, but use the middle clasps. They are there to compensate for the 2 inch difference between sizes. If you don't have a fat layer then it may well dig in your ribs. My size should be 28 but I find 30s more comfortable. I have a 28 I use but it's a strapless version, with detachable straps, and the band is wider, so it doesn't dig much. Still, I prefer the 30.
