When I took this bra out of it's packaging, I thought "those cups looks far too small". Once I started to put it on, it seemed that it was going to be perfect, a tacking gore, right band size, cups that didn't wrap around my sides ... then I did the swoop and scoop, no good.
This bra cuts in across the top of my breasts and I wouldn't say that I am full on top by any means - a common problem I have with full cup bras is a gap at the top. The bottom of my breasts also takes on a strange shape.
After I took the pics I tightened the straps which did improve things but the problems remained, not to mention, the straps were then cutting into my shoulders.
It's a shame because it's a lovely looking bra when it's off me and I also bought the matching brief - no point in unpacking them.
My mind is working on what I can do to minimise the top cut in (eg. remove the stabiliser) and whether some judicial seaming would fix that strange shape.
Update: It seems gravity may have solved the cutting in at the top without my intervention. Unfortunately exercise aversion has resulted in some weight gain and although my other bras with a 30 band still fit me, I have to use an extender with this one for it to be comfortable. Win some, lose some I guess.
