Didn't fit

Me: Narrow roots, narrow shoulders, evenly round, lots of immediate projection, slightly FoB, slightly centre full, never met a gore I didn't like, left-heavey by more than a cup size, 31" underbust, but prefer tight band with extender. Panache, Freya size 30GG

I moved the straps inward by about an inch. This makes the fit almost perfect. The wires are abit wide and I am not fond of padded bras. The band is on the large size and so I don't need an extender. I like the height of the centre gore. It is fairly wide, which doesn't bother me, but I am impressed at how well this bra deals with my centre fullness and assymetry.

  • Just wondering how you moved the straps in - I have a few bras (like you with narrow shoulders) that fit in the cup, but the straps are so wide set that they chafe when I move my arms forward and sometimes fall off. Curvy Kate I find is not my "strap friend"... I'm happy too that I'm shaped like you are, so thanks for posting what worked / not worked for you!

  • I used Nesoa 's instructions for moving bra straps. It only works on padded bras, for me anyway. The only bra I am really happy with from a strap position perspective is the Gaia Annicka.

  • Oh, that's interesting. In what way does it not work for non-padded bad for you? :) I've done a lot of both so if i can improve it in some way it would only be good.

    The only bras i do not move the straps on are some of the newest @Curvy Kate bras as those are actually well-graded in my size range.

  • For starters, when Comexim and seamstresses move the straps inwards on non-padded bras for me, the shape of unpadded (and some padded) is shifted (see my Donna). The tension points on the cups are designed for the normal strap placement and I haven't figured out how to fix it - except to put a dart in the outsideof the cup just inside the wire, which pulls the straps wider again (see my Chloe).

    Secondly, when they are balconnette style seamed cup (which work best for me) there often is no wiggle room for strap placement as the top part of the cup usually comes right out to the strap and is usually made of flimsiery material. I suppose it might work on half cups or maybe even some full cup designs, but the wonderful thing about balconnettes and how they fit is the seam work. Plus, I am relatively low set and I am on the longest strap setting on most bras so I worry about moving the strap attachment without the insurance of extra length.

    I just got a new Empreinte balconnete that has straps set comfortablly for me, but has the same shape issue as the Comexims, only a great deal worse. I can correct the shape problem by putting in a dart in the elastic just inside the wire on the outer side of the cup, but this pulls the straps too wide! I am just posting some photos today of my Jasmine altered. But I have put a 1 cm dart in my Ornella today, which makes the shape perfect, but makes the straps dig in my armpits! I am so frustrated!

  • The tension point is always shifted, and the shape always changes. However, for some, when the strap is so far out, the strap will actually really just pull at the arm, so the shape will be closer to what intended with it moved... But yes, it will be more noticable on some bras.

    I do think it might be a case of size though. Primadonna has never been an option for me since I started wearing bras that fit (reasonably well). In my size range there is usually always at least 1.5 cm to move the strap on, _if_ I attach it lower down, right where the flimsier part ends, but in the correct panel in the cup. But yes, then you lose strap length, which for me is no problem (I usually shorten the straps too about 10 cm when I'm on it)...

    I should probably make a tutorial on how to just round out the armhole (which is the issue for some that are high set, it's just cut too straight and not round), and, how to use that extra fabric on balconettes without having to set the strap in the upper inner cup section.

    Thank you! :)
