Over the past few months, I've been losing a little bit of weight, around 5-10 pounds. I've been doing a lot more sports (rock climbing and horseback riding) but continued to eat as normal. I've built up a lot of new muscle, so think the pure fat I lost was more than 5-10 pounds. Now I've also lost ... about two cup sizes, only a few months after I finally sold all my older, smaller bras..
I'm hoping my new size will be a little more stable, as I hope I'm not going to lose much more weight. I'm really pretty happy with my body right now.
Anyway, I've ordered two new Ewa Michalak bras. Another PL Onyks (I already have one in 65HH) and a PL Cappuccino in 65GG. I've been wanting the Cappuccino since I first saw it and the Onyks is by faaaaar my favorite bra.
I also saw this bra in the linked image and I was wondering if anyone know what it is? I really like the way it looks and I'm hoping it comes in my size

How much have you spent from the start of your proper bra-fitting journey until you've found your [almost] perfect size?
I started my journey end of November 2012. Starting with 32D -> 30DD -> 28E -> 28F -> 28FF -> current size 28G. CK Emily fitted me nicely in 28FF, although I wonder if 28G would be better.
Between ordering and returning ... back and forth, I could probably buy two Masquerade bras full price on the returning postage alone. And pound sterling ain't cheap, honey. Judging by the credit card bills, all these buying costed me one month's worth of my old job's salary. And currently I'm jobless. Thank God for savings and living with parents. Haha.
So yeah, what about you guys?

Can someone confirm me that the bra this woman is reviewing is too small? I can see the centre gore sitting on her breasts!
Pinky Review: Curvy Kate 'Romance' Set | Talking With Tami
Okay so, I have a question to throw out into the void. I thought I'd give the Cleo Jude bra a try. Well, while the results weren't entirely tragic, it was not what I was looking for. I really think the Jude was all sorts of wrong for my boob shape (for more TL;DR details see my review!). But! One ... thing I really like about the Jude is that the underwires came up quite a bit on the sides. In other words, there was the potential to contain the sideboobs! It's just too bad that the top of the cups just dug into the top of my boobs causing the ever-popular quadboob effect.
So I guess my question is: are there Cleo bras that reign in the sides without cutting into the top boob area? I have rather bottom heavy breasts that are also rather spread apart. I guess my being bottom heavy made me surprised there was anything for the top portions of the cups to squeeze. Oh well.
Like, for example, would the Juna Balconette bra be a better option for me? Here's to finding the perfect bra that lifts and pushes together my stubbornly spread apart boobs

So I've been wearing decently fitted bras for a few months now - fitted by me, with lots of knowledge from everyone here & a couple of bra bloggers. Besides feeling a million times better (back, shoulders & neck), looking much better (Lifted! Separated! Supported! No more quadboob!) in & out of clothes and a resulting confidence boost, I've also ... lost 20 lbs. (Amazing how you can exercise when it doesn't hurt & you're not so self-conscious about all the jiggle.)
Anyway, wanted to get a decent sports bra so I can step up the exercise and stopped at Nordstrom to try some on. Got asked by a fitter if I had been recently measured & thought I'd give it a go. Been happily wearing 32J EM bras, which is the size I told her I was wearing. She measured me at a 36 (yep, plus 4) and brought in a 36DDD to try on first. HA HA HA - no. I mean, I get the plus 4 36" band thing and I know that my boobs really don't look as big as they are (narrow but deep, sit crazy high on the chest, soft tissue, and I'm fairly tall. Plus still migrating tissue - which I didn't totally believe would happen but there you have it.) but you guys, a 36DDD. I put it on anyway & it was SO bad.
She did move right away to a 36G, which was simultaneously too small & too big. She also noticed and said to me that the band should be snug on the loosest setting & the center gore should sit flat, which of course it didn't in any of the 34/36 Gs she brought in. I had pulled a 32H Panache Sports bra (which I ended up purchasing, despite being too small in the cups) and it wasn't until she saw that on that she finally, finally brought in the 32Js that I had requested to begin with and acknowledged that they were a really good fit! Ugh. She was super helpful and nice but if I hadn't known what worked for me, I might have walked out of there in a 36 or 38G (what I used to wear - that did not work!).

I hit the gym after a several month hiatus, and I think I hit it a little too hard because I wound up with more than the usual pain in my pecs - usually it goes away after two days. It's now four. Last night when I took off my shirt I noticed some visible swelling above my ... breast. Instead of a gently sloping top, I had my own quadboob, without a bra. If I used Victoria Secret's above my breast measuring, and compared that the top of my breast (as the underbust), I think my swelling would wear a 38A.
It really felt like muscle tissue - hard, like biceps - so I wasn't too woried but thought it was so strange that it only showed up a few days after the workout. I must have gotten the muscle close to ripping, and then finished the job with my back workout a couple days later. It was gone when I got up this morning, but then I stretched and it appeared again. I guess I need to take it easy with my arms for a while. It's looking fairly normal again this evening.
It gave me such a peculiar profile. I sort of wish I had a bra which would have fit it, so I could have gotten a picture of my above-breast breast wearing its own bra. It could have had its own measurements and everything.

Went to Bravissimo today and got fitted, it was brilliant! No tape measures or anything, and I was fitted by a nice lady with a very similar size and shape to me so we had a good boob chat. Turns out that I can't tell the difference between cleavage and quadboobing... so I need to go up a size. Ended ... up spending £99 on...

Life is good to me, I got this wonderful bussines trips planned in the next two months and I plan to go on a bra hunt in my spare time
Rome is first up, but I know girls from Italy order online so I don't expect much there, but I'm opened to surprises! Any tips? Nothing ... in the Vatican probably, huh?
I don't know where in Romania and Poland I'll be located, but I do have a say in the matter, so please tell me - are there any walk in stores that carry Kris Line, Gorsenia, Ewa Michalak, Comexim? And Biubiu and Urkye?
Or do I just go knocking on Ewa's and Ula's door?
I probably could write to them and ask, but I'm kind of avoiding Dominik, so Ewa tips at least, please

Since the old bust-friendly clothing adventure is like 100 pages behind, and nobody posts there anymore, I'll start a new one. (if that’s ok xD)
I’m so annoyed with Biu Biu! I did sent some stuff back from my last order on 18.12.2012. In late January I started to worry and wrote an E-Mail to BiuBiu. A week later I got ... finally an answer: They said they never got the return. Since I sent the parcel recorded I could look it up but only where it went in my own country. So I E-mailed BiuBiu again and told them the tracking nr. and asked them ask about the parcel on the polish post. Since then I got no answer for 10 days!
I’m not mad if I have to wait a few days, I know BiuBiu is a small company and not all companies can offer a customer service like Bravissimo but it’s longer than I waited for replies from Ewa Michalak!
Now yesterday I got a message from my postman that I have to fetch a parcel from Poland at my post office. It was the same parcel I sent on 18.12! Polish post had returned it because it was not picked up by BiuBiu at their post office! I paid about 13£ postage for this and now I have it again? It would have been cheaper to just sell the clothes that not fit on ebay than send them back!
I don’t know If I’ll order from them again! It just gets too expensive that way! I had however never such problems with Urkye.
Has anyone made similar experiences with BiuBiu returns?
I just discovered Lady V London and I fell in love with their beautiful dresses. Especially this one: http://www.ladyvlondon.com/Red-Wine-Polka-Dot-Swing-Dress_A17GEY.aspx?nh=300293
Doesn’t every girl need a polka dot dress?
Has anyone ever bought something from them? How is the sizing? Due to their size chart I’m a size 18 in bust measurement, 14 in waist and 16 in hips. I know collectif dresses do run bigger than their size chart says but what about Lady V?
