Fits

I have been gradually working my way up in cup size, after realizing from viewing all the bra blogs out there, that my cup size was too small.

I have been wearing a Freya Deco 28 GG, after going up from a 28 G...but with the 'scooping' technique, I was getting a 'quad boob' on my right boob which is a size bigger than the left one...so I knew the 28 GG cup increase was still too small https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />...and I was SO gutted to find Freya don't make any bigger cup size in this bra!! (why not Freya when you make your other 28 bras with bigger cup sizes and the Deco is so popular!?) It is the only bra that has given my soft tissue, bottom heavy boobs any 'up lift'!

I had always found the Freya Deco strap a bit too stretchy (I measure 27" under my bust)...so after some research on Bratabase I worked out the 'Rio' in a 28 H might fit okay as the strap is quite tight for a 28" strap.............

Well, the Rio's strap is tight! That is great for me as there's no slipping up my back...stays firmly in place, though the tightness would need some getting used to.

The bra DOES fit...covers all my breast tissue after scooping...no quad boobs....BUT the result is a bra that fits but gives a horrible FLAT shape!! ...No nice rounded lifted shape under clothes, no cleavage...by the way this is the same problem I have found with the Bravissimo Satine bra (fits, but no nice shape..flat!) and Curvy Kate bras.

I think I really have to stick with padded (probably push up) bras to gather all my soft tissue up...the fabric and shape of this bra does nothing for me https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> Shame because it's easy to buy here in the UK and cheap around £20.

The only thing for me now is to get going and order some Ewa Michalak bras, to hopefully get a good shape and the removable pads will sort out my two different sized boobs!..might take a while as it took a week for them to even reply to my email enquiry & I risk picking the wrong cup size first time (I'm thinking J,JJ..even K after looking at sizing on this site??)...I'll review the Ewa bra/s, hopefully soon https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
