The brand @Asos has a unique approach to bra making and measuring, so I'm still not sure if the size I'm wearing in their bras can be improved upon. Their bands stretch A LOT and their cups run small. A tight measurement (tightest it can go, not the wearable measurement) around my underbust gives me a 31" at most but a 30" band is still too loose and needs to be fastened on the tightest hook to not slide down my back. Here the straps need to be at the tightest too, not because the band is too loose but because even at uncomfortable tightness around the ribcage, ... the bra needs to rely on the straps to stay put.
The cups have a weird quality as well because they start to fold just above the band, as if I couldn't fill them out quite enough, which I actually do, the quality is just off with this model.
The underwires themselves lie fully flat but the gore doesn't tack which I also attribute to the quality because the underwires stop just before the gore ends and there is nothing to keep the gore in place.
The bra looks really nice though and since parts do seem to stretch out over time I am sure I can get good looking outifts with it. This bra just isn't the right bra the lounge in since the support is nearly non-existent if not on the tightest of hooks.
