I am SO fed up with bras where the straps get lodged in my armpits and rub, chafe, and cut in all day. I don't understand why full-bust bra manufacturers space the straps so far apart at the front.
My boobs are set pretty low on my chest, and I have a small concavity at the top near my armpit where there isn't any more breast tissue, so when I wear balconettes there's some empty space right at that spot. The Cleo Lucy is a classic example of this problem. I spend the whole day grabbing the strap-cup interface and tugging it towards my front, away from my armpit, trying to close that gap and stop the strap from attacking my armpits.
Does anyone else have issues with armpit strap and/or that little gap in the cup near the armpit? Any recommendations for non-pointy, unpadded bras with close-set straps at the front? I'm thinking about cutting and re-sewing the straps on my Ewa Michalak CHP Mak. Can't do that with balconettes like the Lucy, though, because the straps are a continuation of the cups.
