Hi all. I’m looking for some help. I’ve tried lots of bras and still cannot find ABTF. I’ll list all that I’ve tried. The calculator estimates me to be a 34E, soft tissue, short roots, in need of wide underwires.
Freya Fancies Plunge 34E and 34F- too projected and tall
Montelle Demi Flirt 34E and 34F-too tall, found straps to be too wide, wrinkling at the bottom of the cup, redness where the gore sits
B’tempted Ciao Bella 34DDD-too narrow, underwire sitting on tissue, straps were too tight, spilling out of cup
Panache Ana 34E-gore painfully digging in, cups too projected, too narrow
Skarlett Blue Mix 34DDD-straps seemed too wide, wrinkling at bottom of cups, seemed almost too shallow, too narrow.
Skarlett Blue Entice-34DDD & 34G- too shallow in the cups.
Sized down to 34DD-too narrow, underwire poking me, cups still wrinkled towards the bottom
Freya Cameo High Apex 34E-too projected in the cups, super stiff underwire and not sitting in IMF at all
Freya Offbeat Side Support 34DD-Overall too small for me
Sized up to a 34E-Too projected, strap twisting on one side, felt underwire pressing against me, not sitting in IMF and kept feeling like I needed to adjust the bra, wrinkling in cups as well. But ultimately my closest match in terms of cup height and width.
Panache Clara in 34E, too narrow and tall in the gore/cups.
Wacoal Nearly Nothing Plunge Bra in 34DD, 32DDD, and 34DDD too big in the cups, wrinkling near bottom of cups. Originally this one seemed ok in 34DD, and I was wearing it for awhile but it slowly got uncomfortable the more I would wear it, fabric of the bra is folding under/over itself. The right side digs in, it feels like it’s sort of digging in the gore area and where the front of the bra band it feels like it’s pressing inwards?
Chantelle Norah in 34DD. It felt good for about a day and now the gore is pressing into me on my left side only, and a bit underneath my boob as well, my nipple sort of seems squished in the cup. I pulled the bra down in the last picture and circled where it’s irritating me.
VS lovecloud half pad plunge in 34DD (i know🤦🏻♀️i was desperate) In the armpit and ribcage area? It’s more the left cup than anything, it’s started to cut under my armpit and the cup shifts around if that makes sense? I have to be careful not to have a nip slip but it’s only the left side.
Natori (I’m not sure what models because these were tried at a fitter, too small in cups and narrow) I think she had me in 34DD-DDD.
Montelle Sublime- 34E underwire not sitting in IMF, too narrow, again felt irritating on smaller side.
Wacoal Halo Lace in 36D- I went to a fitter and she suggested this was a good fit, I actually bought it but I’ll be returning it, too narrow overall and uncomfortable on my smaller side (it was suggested maybe the wire was too wide and causing irritation in my fit check). Gore was slightly lifted on my larger side.
Understance 34DDD- Zoe, Simone, Sierra, Penny, Harper. Too tall, shape mismatches in most of these. Harper and Sierra, were too big. Simone looked good in terms of cup height and same with Zoe although it leaned taller than Simone. The shape was close in Simone and Penny.
