Didn't fit

I had only recently started to look into proper fitting so I hadn't realized that the lettering grade Cacique uses runs larger.

I also find strange how constricting the band is - I need to use a band extender simply to get it on. I'm almost certain it isn't a 36, despite how the label reads.

-----
UPDATE:
With breast tissue migrating back into place and a bit of weight loss, the band now fits without the use of an extender. That being said, I am currently comfortable in 32 and 34 bands (Curvy Couture, Curvy Kate, Parfait, and Panache) so this Cacique model may potentially be too tight in the band. As far as I can tell from their sizing charts, Lane Bryant (the parent company of the Cacique Intimates line) doesn't seem to operate with the "add 4 inches" sizing system so sister sizing up once may be fine.

I've altered the shape of the underwires, sewn the inner ends of the wire channels together, and sewn the underwires into place as they had the tendency to shift to the outer edges of the cups, leaving the innermost points to dig into my sternum and underbust. I've also sewn an eye-hook closure into the cups, an inch above the gore, as an option for a more dramatic appearance. Lastly, I've sewn the straps so they are no longer adjustable and constantly lengthening when I don't want them to.

- reshaped underwire curve
- narrowed gore
- fixed underwire placement
- fixed strap length
- limited band stretch
