One thing I've realised, is that I don't think my bra band will for me quite where it just. It doesn't ride up per se. But it maybe sits a little higher than it 'technically' should. But I think that's in part due to two things.
1) I'm short, so I'm going to have to adjust my straps, and it's going to always be all little higher than the placement on a average height person, I think. They are never tight either, in fact I think I sometimes put it looser than it should be, lol. It's a throwback from when I used to wear some ill-fitting bras and loosened the status to prevent muffin-top... I've think I've found the right placement though.
And 2) I almost always have to push up my cups, do that the underwires sit higher. When I do this the cups fit better. Granted, this hasn't been much of an issue recently. My EMs don't really slide down, and if they do it's not horribly low down *looking at you Jasmine* it's juuuust a little way down. Funnily enough my Nina (bravissimo) is the only one that really stays put. But that bra has it's own set of issues. It's interesting though, because the stretched band figures are similar to each other?
That being said, the band doesn't really pose an issue for me, because I'm still getting the support I need but it's just interesting to note.
