Didn't fit

I have loved everything I have received from @Claudette so far. I have the Fishnet Plunge in 28:4; http://bra.pe/XXwQ/ and I have the 30:4 in this same bra; http://bra.pe/XXvC/ . I was SO HAPPY with how the 30D fit me I was ecstatic to try my 28:5 Dessous. These are unfortunately two completely differently fitting bras. The comfort level on this bra is great. The band was lovely and snug. The under wires were a fine width, and I of course had my typical problem with Claudette under wire/gores. They sort of dig in and hurt to begin with, this either goes away or I push the wire down the channel towards the outside of the cup since there is always a bit of room in the wire channels. The shape this bra gave me was a very natural one, not at all like the 30D which was lifted, gathered, and mostly rounded. There were quite a lot of horizontal lines on this bra and a couple vertical ones on the arm pit side of the cup. I couldn't figure out what was going on with this bra till I took it off and went to measure it. This 28DD CAN NOT fit a 28, or even a 26, rib cage without the cups & wires stretching and warping. Laying flat the band measures 20.5"; certainly not unheard of for a 28 band. But then I went to stretch the band and only got to 23" before the wires & cups started warping. I think this bra would be best for a tight 24:8 (24H) with narrow roots. Although the cups/wires may be a bit warped as I wore this bra once for a ten hour shift at work. The bra band can easily stretch to at least 26" (that's where I stopped stretching it), but, again, the wires/cups begin warping after 23".
I have no idea what I'm going to do with this bra.....I'd like to try a 28D/E respectively. To see if this is a problem among all @Claudette size 28 band @Dessous bras. I plan on doing a comparison page.

    I know yogurt ! The best color description I can come up with is highlighter pink. SO very bright and in your face. I just wish the wires/cups didn't start warping after a 3" stretch of the band. :-(
    I'm hoping this one is just a one off and I can get another where the wires don't warp when the band stretches to at least 26".

Band can stretch to 26.5", cups start to wrap after 23". Warped cups make it difficult to decipher fit.

This bra didn't fit her, but these did
