Didn't fit

I am very close set with outer fullness, tall shallow roots, and need immediate depth.
This bra's gore was too wide. I altered it by moving the wire more into the armpit area so the tips of the wire channels at the gore were empty. Then I cut down the center of the gore and overlapped the empty part of the channels. Narrowing the gore caused the cups to be too narrow so I pulled on the wires to make them 0.5 in wider. Now this bra is wearable but still doesn't fit because the cups are all wrong. This bra is designed more for FOT breast with shorter roots, so on me I have some emptiness near the top and the top of the cups collide with my tall roots. The bottom if the cups do not have enough space which are causing wrinkles along the vertical seam. Usually when the cups of bras don't fit me it cause the bra to shift and sit uncomfortable on my ribs, but since the band is so tight nothing moves. It is comfortable unless I am slouching and being lazy. The fabric on the bottom of the bra is very stiff unlike see though fabric of most unlined bras. I wish I could find a whole bra made of this fabric with cups that fit rather then just the bottom because it would be perfect under T-shirts.

    Yay for the power of alterations! I have found narrowing the gore makes bras too narrow for me, too. I had hoped my tissue would just move into the center, which it does. But, it also still needs the space I eliminated on the sides. SIGH. Great laminated fabric on Gia. Hope you find a great fit soon!
