Bra fitting help » Wrinkling in top outer corners of cups, floating straps.
Freya » Fancies Plunge Bra (1011) » 30F 30:7
I'm filling out the top outer corners better now and the wrinkling seems to have gone, perhaps because I put on weight during a recent holiday. wendybien's comments about the tail of spence were very helpful and I was able to identify my tail of spence curving round into my armpit. I also realised that although I have fairly tall roots, my upper tissue is a little shallow, so I need bras that aren't too closed on top but don't expect loads of upper fullness.
As you can see from the photos, I have some wrinkling in the top outer corners of the cups. Does anyone know what might be causing this? The straps are floating above my boobs too. I think the fit is pretty good, but it would be good to know how to avoid these problems in future (if that's even possible!)

I'm wondering if these cups are slightly big or at least too tall for your shape? the wrinkling at the top of the cup where it meets the straps is not usually a worry for me on its own, but it might be a sign that you've over-tightened the straps to make up for too-big cups. Do freya run large?

I think the cup depth looks pretty good, so while you could try to size down, it could just be a design issue. Cup is taller than you strictly need on outer quadrant and the angle from apex to shoulder is more generous than your tissue. I have a gap or wrinkle there in almost every single bra as I have zero tissue in that zone. My tail of spence is super shallow and it goes straight up and then curves and then goes horizontally to my armpit crease so it is rarely under the upper cup corner/bra strap.
