Any bra folk about?

I'm a 28F in a Freya Idol and it's quite a good fit but I think I could do a tiny bit better <fussy>. What other bras might suit?

I will be ordering online as it is next nigh impossible to buy 28 back bras irl. Like it's an outrageous size or something. hmm

Bump! Please save me from a disappointing returns visit to the post office!!!

Are there any Bravissimo shops near you? I'm a similar size to you and wouldn't shop anywhere else. Usually go into a cubicle with about 20 bras and only find a couple that fit properly! That's why I really think you need to try styles on.

So many questions!

What do you think is wrong with how the Idol is on you? What's making it less than perfect? Or is it just that it's not as aesthetically pleasing as you'd like?
Are there any gaps or over spill anywhere? Is the strap/wire/band positioning comfortable?

Thanks both.

No, unfortunately no Bravissimo shops around. The Idol is a good fit, it's just that I think it could be a bit more uplifting. And I suppose I fancy having something fancier in my wardrobe.
