Bra fitting help » Straps rubbing and depth too shallow
Freya » Deco Moulded Plunge Bra (4234) » 28FF 28:8
I have several issues. First, the straps rub my arms if I'm moving around at all. I tried using the j-hook and that helped a tiny bit, but not enough. I also have an issue with the underwire being way too long. Not sure if they make bras in my size without underwires extending so far back. Last big issue is that the depth seems to be lacking in this one. I'd like recommendations for a bra with a depth that would fit better - with underwires that fit a more rounded, average width breast. Sorry if I left anything out or if I should have tried something before posting - it's my first time! Thanks for any help!

First of all, 'long' underwires is not a term we usually use. Wires are too wide if it goes way past your root, and too tall if its poking your underarm.
28s are harder to find, i think, no? Definitely looks too wide for you in all ways, pretty much.
If you look at the numbers, the 'cup width' measurement here is 7 (which is crazy - thats the width on MY bras and I'm like 3x your size), but the width on your Hettie is 5.8.
I'd search amazon (and used places) for bras in your size range, and then come back here to bratabase and look at the cup width and see what might work.
I suspect you might want to try some polish bras at some point tho - like comexim with straps moved in sort of thing.

Try searching for a shorter wing height measurement, also try bending the cup narrower as you wear it and see if any position there seems better, then you can also search for narrower cup width.

How are you measuring your cup width? It should be in straight line from the inside seam of the wire channel to the opposite inside seam of the wire channel. 6" seems wide for a deco in this size. I think you may be measuring from the outside seam of this wire channel straight across the other outside seam of the opposite wire channel. Deco is one of Freya's most narrow bras. Deco is supposed to be a minimal coverage bra that pulls everything in from the sides. A lot of women go up a band size and some go down a cup size or two to get a better fit with no gaps. You either have to have a specific breast shape to fit the Freya Deco or you have to be okay will a really small cup depth or an overall ill fitting bra to achieve no gaps and major cleavage. With you being surgically enhanced I don't think your breasts will work very well with being smooshed to fit a bra.
You may want to focus on cups that fit and then shorten the bands. I personally don't think this bra is WAY to wide for you, but it's very hard to see a breast root through a moulded cup. So I'm left trying to see the where your breast root is in comparison to your armpit and your tail of Spence. Being surgically enhanced with a smaller ribcage is a bit of a difficult equation to figure out a perfect fit for.
