Bra Intervention- any experts around?

How tight is too tight for the band?
I can breath thought it feels tight on last hook (loosest hook).

This the dilemma.
Underbust measures 29.5inches. So I am a 30 inch back size. There is 5 inches difference between that and my boobs so going for a D cup. These fit but the band is quite tight. The cups fit well.

I have tried DD cups and the issue there is the bras have wider straps, and wider bands and it just feels too much. My boobs are not BIG and I am small boned / petite.

If I go to a 32D I can fasten in the tightest hook, or the middle hook (of 3) but the shoulder straps seem much further apart and slip off. So although the band is not so tight, the bra straps won't stay put.

Which is the better choice?

What bra have you been trying? Am presuming you've got them both in the same style otherwise there's no point in comparing.

It sounds like you need the straps to sit more centrally to keep them in place, so not most balconettes.
