I need help determining what type of bra is best for me.
I have this problem where a 38 band is loose and comfortable on the tightest hooks, but a 36 feels too tight on the loosest hooks. I'm used to sports bras.
I have round breasts that are wide. Thanks to this site i learnt i need a narrow gore. Underwires hurt, but all the sexiest bras have them. I want sexy, not practical. I don't like the pointed look. Is that called projection? I prefer wide and round like a contour bra. Waist is a bit wider at times than band due to chronic bloat. So would longline be uncomfortable?
I measure 34dd but can't get one to fasten. I have fat near the underarm and I know it's not side boob. My only practical bra has more material on the side to hide this.
Is there a sexy bra that feels like a sports bra?
Want a laugh. My measurements are 34 underbust, 39 bust and I used to wear 36b or 38a thinking that amount of spillage was normal and desirable.
So what style do you recommend? I have a couple Freya's coming; expressions and wild. Anxiously waiting.
Final note: I can't get a gore to lie flat.

  • I don't have any suggestions on sytles, but for the band, maybe you could try a 34 with an extender until is stretches slightly? Maybe you just need that extra hook or two for a bit?

  • Thank you for your reply. I'm using extenders currently just to get used to a 36" that really only extends to a 35"
