Bra fitting for the curvier figure

I had a bra fitting yesterday, and at the time was really pleased with the result, I look great from the front, from the back though in a close fitting t-shirt it is a different story - lots of flab sticking out below the strap - think I may have to take it back and start again. Anyone got any suggestions of where to go, I'm in S Yorks by the way

Bravissimo, Bravissimo, Bravissimo, Bravissimo, Bravissimo, Bravissimo!!!!

I love it! I never buy my bras anywhere else. They fit brilliantly and have some gorgeous bras. Not cheap though. I think they start at a D cup. Any good?

They are on-line too.

Thanks Littlefish, it was actually a Bravissimo that I went to yesterday - didn't want to slag them off. Maybe I am being too critical, or perhaps it was an off fitting? Perhaps I just have to accept that with my figure to get my boobs looking right there will be a flab explosion round the back. I'm a size 14/16 and yesterday was told I am a 34E when I had been wearing a 38DD.
Hmmmm need a RL friend with honesty to tell me what they think!

Oh no - what a disappointment.

An obvious question, but which hook have you got the bra done up on at the back? Can you let it out at all?

Got it done up on the loosest hook - the fitter told me this was the right thing to do, as could tighten it as the bra started to wear and stretch a bit, would prolong the life of the bra. Am wondering whether a 36 would have been better, but got the bra while away for the night yesterday. May have a trip to Nottingham or Manchester for a different Bravissimo shop, so want to look and feel right, and proud of my assets!
