how are they supposed to fit? I have got one, but to be honest, it doesn't even cover my nipples!

The size is right, surely they are supposed to give you a LITTLE coverage?

Aren't they?

erm... yes... they should cover much more than that!
suggest a bigger cup size!

yes too small

I wear balconettes when we have run out of side tables in the house! In one my boobs create a nice raised surface reminiscent of an usherettes tray but then again I am a GG (OMG that is the second time in so mnayminutes I have revealed my boob size on mn, think I am becoming obsessed!)

Yes, I wear them too. Go to M&S, they excel in the lingerie department and have properly trained assistants on hand to measure you and suggest styles that'll suit you.

I love balconettes but have had the nipple problem with certain makes, I guess they come up smaller. It always makes me feel a bit pleased with myself though that my nipples are still that high up

I used to like balconettes but since having children they just make the top part of my boobs look rather 'wobbly' and not quite as rounded as I would like.
