Come visit r/Polishbras, a place to discuss, well, Polish bras!!
(not so much about fit though, more about ... where to/how to purchase them)
Update: I currently measure 32GG UK and this is what fits: Gosenia 70I (Amaro & Manila), Gorteks 75I (Marilyn), Avocouture 75H (NF), Nessa 70J, Kris Line 70HH (note: Kris Line has it's own sizes), Empreinte 32G (Cassiope), PLEASE NOTE: I like a *tight band* so YMMV as far as sizing!! It's possible we will not agree on proper band fit, since I like my bands *snug*
In Feb 2021, I had a modest weight loss (about 8 pds), and I googled various dress-size/bra-size calculators: I stumbled upon omincalculator for dress and bra size. I didn't think their bra-size calculator was accurate (note: I realize now they use the outdated +4 method), so I kept googling. Lo and behold, I came across ABTF calculator, and thus began my journey to find ABTF!
I've found that Polish bras work best for me. It took me about two months, lots of research, and 21 try-ons (this was all done online) before I truly found ABTF.
I love online bra shopping! Sometimes you will consider a bra that you see online on a model, that you wouldn't consider on a hanger!
My favourite places to bra shop: BreakoutBras.com, ShopCustomCurves.ca, Comexim.pl, EwaMichalak.pl, LevanaBratique.com, Two Canadian stores that sell Polish bras: BroadLingerie.com, and SFYS.com
Tip for using Bratabase: find your "boob twins" on bratabase, meaning, people who have a similar breast shape and frame to you (not necessarily the exact same size, but close...) and then look up what brands and styles work for them! This will save you time, $, and the hassle with online bra purchase returns : )
Another strategy: find someone near your bra size/breast shape who is a bra blogger, read her reviews and consider purchasing what works for her. Some bra blogs I read: CurvyWordy, BrasIHate, ButterflyCollectionLingerie.blogspot.com, HugsForYourJugs, VenusianGlow, BrasAndBodyImage, SophisticatedNotion.
Favourite YouTube channels on Bra Fit & Design: A Sophisticated Pair https://www.youtube.com/user/ASophisticatedPair, and the Bra Addict.
Also, I find Her Room Youtube videos to be helpful, but I'm not sure I would order from their website, as I've heard of people having difficulties w refunds https://www.youtube.com/user/herroom

Happy boobs, happy life is kind of my mantra! Seriously though, a well-fitting bra can improve one's quality of life!
