I measure a 30DD...some brands I can wear a 28E and other times I settle for a 32D and I alter the band into a 30 band. (I think my newest measurements are set to public).
Anyway, my main issue with bra fit is, some bras have too much projection and I cannot fill the very center of the ... cup. Usually those bras also have wires that are sitting on breast tissue. I tend to need wide wired cups that aren't too deep. I'm also bottom full. I've breastfed 4 babies for 18m-2.5y each....so I do have soft tissue because it's been stretched alot (up to 30F/FF)
Freya almost never fits me except I have a 28E padded half cup, but I feel it doesn't give much lift. I don't like the look under most clothes. Wacoal bras usually fit, but they don't make many 30 bands, so I end up altering 32D. Cleo molded/contour balconette bras always fit but I don't always want to wear a balconette with the straps being so wide set, plus I do like seamed bras.
Moulded unpadded seamless never seem to fit, as my soft tissue wants to sink to the bottom of the stretchy cup.
I'd like recommendations on brands that usually fit breasts like mine. I don't live anywhere near a sore with good bras. The only "bra store" within 50+miles of me closed. I order online and return or alter.
I wear both contour foam cup (as long as the foam is thin and not too rigid), and seamed cups. I like firm bands with taller wings, especially wings that have a non stretch portion extending from the cup.
Time to find bras I really like, as I'm done having babies, so I expect not to have as much shape/size changing anymore.
