Used to fit

CHP Słowianki was a little too small at first, giving me quadboob when I wore it. As Ewa Halfcups of that size usually fit me fine (if not slightly too large), I wondered why Słowianki was so different.

Then it occurred to me - none of my older Ewa halfcups had pockets for push-up pads sewn in.
So since I didn't need the pads anyway, I grabbed some scissors removed the pockets carefully. Turns out as a success!
Even though I was not using the pads at any point, the pockets were still sitting at the bottom of the cups, reinforcing the lower part of the cup, thus making the bottom of the cups shallower by creating some weird push-up effect on my lower boob tissue. (Seen from the side, the bottom of the cups was slightly boxy, not as rounded as you'd expect.) Removing the pockets gave me more immediate depth at the bottom of the cups for the boob tissue to settle in, and my quadboob problem is solved.

It was quite surprising to see that these pockets - even with no pads in - have such an influence on cup volume and bra fit.
