Please help me find a suitable bra - I've failed miserably!!
I'm trying to find a black bra to wear under a low cut dress. According to the intervention method I am a 34gg which fit well (but do cut into the fat above the band on my back behind my armpits ). The central underwires come up high on everything I've tried, and plunge bras just dont fit me right as I end up bursting out of the top of them. 3 kids, breastfeeding and age have taken their toll! Please can anyone suggest a suitable bra to try? Thankyou
This is not for everyday use, but I have a solution that I used myself with similar issues - need a low center but falling out of plunges. Get a plunge bra and some kinesiology tape. Tape the boobs - not to the bra, just pull them from middle to upwards and sideways, so the middle part stays nice and firm. Does that make sense?
Go to Bravissimo and get fitted. Best thing I ever did. I had the same problem as you where my measurements didn't seem to tally with what fitted. I recommend the Elise bra too. I have it in two colours.
