I have finally found a bra that fits! And, it's super cute and happy looking in the bright yellow.
At first, the band was quite tight, and I wore it with an extender, but it has stretched to be comfortable. There was the slightest gapping at the top of the cups with the slightest quad boob at the seam between the lace and the fabric. However, a tiny (¼") tuck at the apex took that away and it lays smoothly over the tops of my breasts. The seams practically disappear under tighter clothing as well.
I am quite close together with fullness in the center and project. After two kids, my tissue is soft on top (it wants to pillow or be cut into…no plunge bras!!). I was so happy to finally put on a bra that wasn't pushing out my tissue in the center and allowed for my breasts to come forward without cutting into them.
I also had ordered a Lucy in a 28G, but it was way too tight in the band, so I am waiting for it in a 30FF. I am also waiting for a Lily in a 30G. I am excited to feel I am finally on the right track! I have tried on so many different brands and cuts. Some were almost OK, but not quite. I would love to hear feedback as to how these three styles have worked for others.
At any rate, I'm very happy with my new yellow bra. So is my husband! I didn't realize how much he hated nude and black bras until he saw me in this happy yellow Marcie!
EDIT: I read some comments on fit issues with the Meg/Lily, where it was recommended to push the wires down in the channels so that they are pushed away from the center and more towards the outside. Genius! Gapping is gone! I removed the tucks and it fits well. I may even try up one cup size with my next purchase, but it remains supportive and practically disappears under clothes.
