Used to fit

The measurements of this bra were taken after I bent the wires to better fit my ribcage ( and to ameliorate the phenomenon seen here (

This fits...fine. I like the tight band because it allows for stretching! The gore is high, to which my sternum is unaccustomed, but this is very flattering to my bottom-heavy breasts. I feel very secure and supported in this bra.

My two issues:
* The wires stretch if I put the band on the middle hook. Not cool! They then grind against my ribs and are very uncomfortable. Bending them like the tutorial on Bras I Hate helped, but I have to repeat this occasionally.
* The fabric is a little itchy, but two rinses with diluted vinegar helped. Also, for future note, do not use Eucalan to wash bras if you have prissy princess boob skin like I do. It's fine for my knitted objects, but not my bras.
