Need some more help with bloody bra intervention please!
3rd thread on this topic.... I do apologise! I was looking for a bra guru to support me in my quest to find a proper, well fitting bra. I previously wore a 32A which was loose - I have quite small breasts and am relatively petite and slim.
28 inches underbust 31.5 inches over bust
I was recommended on MN to try 28C or 28D and if not go for a 30B. So off I went to John Lewis (massive lingerie department they've got in my local one). I could find no 28Ds but a few 28Cs, which I tried. The back was fine but the cup too loose by the strap? I tried a 30B, which I thought the back was too loose on and the cup a but small.
Please can someone tell me what size to go for now? Or do I just have very odd boobs?! Thanks I'm advance.
what styles did you try? Were they full cups? With those it's quite common that the top of cup is empty - try some plunges or balconnette bras. If 28 back was fine and 30B cup a little small, I would try 28D. Order a bunch online from a place that does free returns
Sounds like 28C or D is right. Remember sizing varies, just as a size 10 in topshop is not the same as in M&S. Style also matters. I second the recommendation of Brastop, would order loads of various styles in those sizes and return the ones that don't work.
