Didn't fit

I already have Jasmine in 30GG (grey Animal print - slightly small) and 30H (Ricamo floral print). Like many people here, I love this style for the stretch lace which means full on top friendly!

This old colourway I really loved - it's like an impressionist flower painting! - but was no longer available anywhere. Then someone sold it brand new with tags on EBay, in 32GG.. I couldn't resist!

Why this size?
Because my 30GG was a bit too small, and sizing up to 30H hadn't turned out perfectly either. Then I thought, because the 30's were still quite snug in the band, could 32GG be the solution? (And of course yay for this colour suddenly being thrown into my lap)

Well, the fit is not great on me. I should have predicted how sizing up in the band would also mean a 'wider' bra, meant for someone with a larger frame - even in my own size I always have issues with chafing straps in my armpits :/
So that's definitely an issue with this 32GG.

On the bright side, I do fill out the bottom of the cups better. In my 30GG & H there's a bit of an orange in a glass effect because apparently I need more immediate projection? Well, this 32GG gives me more room there. However this also means that on my smaller breast, I have some wrinkling near the apex (visible in front picture). Shouldn't happen in Jasmine because she's stretchy. Also as you can see in pictures, on me this has a bit more coverage than Jasmine is meant to have. So the cups are a bit too big (and seem bigger than my 30H, even though they're sister sizes).

As for the band, surprisingly it fit pretty well on the loosest hook. Might have to move down soon though, but that makes sense as I normally mostly wear a 30 band.

All in all, this bra is wearable but not too comfy. Love the print & look, but not sure if I can make it work with these fit issues. How I wish bra manufacturers did something about their strap placement / wideness - I know I'm not the only one who needs more centered straps!
