Bra intervention help for small back size

I did the going to Bravissimo and getting fitted properly thing a few years ago - went in a 34B and came out a 28DD

Bought some Bravissimo and Freya bras, ended up absolutely hating them because the cups were too full for my teardrop shaped boobs.

Ended up buying 30D bras at M&S because their plunge t-shirt bras are the perfect style for me (low enough plunge that there’s not loads of cup flapping around at the top, moulded cup, great under tight tees)

They’re too big around the back, as I’m def a 28, but they are in every other way my perfect bra and so comfortable, I’ve been wearing them for years now

However now I’ve lost quite a bit of weight, so I’m now a 28D according to the bra intervention measurements. So thought it was time to get some new bras

Except everything I can find in a 28D is bloody balconette or lacy or full cup. And the weight loss means my boobs have lost even MORE volume from the top.

This little beauty from Panache would be ideal - except nowhere seems to sell it.

And the other Panache styles that are in stock at the usual bra places (Figleaves, Brastop etc) that I like don’t come in 28D

Any suggestions for 28D t-shirt bras for someone with minimal boobage up top?

Would either of these be any good?

Hey @bananafish81
Panache tend to come up small in the cup - so I am normally 28e in Freya etc but wear Panache 28f in the Porcelain moulded t shirt bra. It is the best t shirt bra I have ever worn.
They seem to be reducing their 28 range (bastards!) but there's a 28dd on sale here which might work for you?

PS I also have teardrop breasts but this style works for me - something about the shape of the mould means I don't have empty bits at the top unlike every other full cup bra. And the support is amazing.
