Hi! I'm new here. What are any suggestions or guidelines for finding a bra that will reduce projection? My breasts are projected when lifted properly but not pushed towards my torso (so, the pointy look I get with the Panache Jasmine - lifted and projected instead of lifted and rounded.) While I'm not sure if they're considered moderately or quite projected, either way I don't like how it affects they way some blouses hang, so I want to reduce the projection. In particular I'm hoping for something that will work for a white silk blouse. Apparently I love a bra challenge.
I tried Bali Passion for Comfort minimizer in a 32D, and while the reduced projection was great, the problem was I didn't fill out the tops, so the wrinkles from the unfilled top area - those few inches where the cup starts at the strap - showed through my thin blouse. I returned it so can't post photos. I am shallow on top + FOB, and have very soft tissue (which might be why I get the pointy look in the Jasmine, but that's for a different post). All the minimizers I've found seem to be cut high in that way where I won't fill it out at the top near the strap. I'd love a balcony-style minimizer but haven't seen one. And, I think my bra size is 30DD, but minimizers start at bigger sizes, hence the Bali in 32D. I looked up "compression" and only got sports bras.
Does anyone know if there is a minimizer that would suit FOB/shallow-on-top breasts, at the smaller band size?
OR, is there a way to achieve this with a different style bra? Lifted but with reduced projection, that won't show through clothes? Maybe something that is smooth and gives a lifted + rounded (instead of pointy) look? All I can think of is a shallow (and maybe too small?) t-shirt bra to squash my boobs in, but that doesn't seem ideal. Thanks!
