The Alana apparently runs more shallow in the cups than the Boudoir Beau I got in a 36K, so I decided to size up another size. I shouldn't have. It's slightly too big in cups and the band feels too loose. I think I'd need a 34KK or 32LL.
But the biggest problem is that the shoulder straps are cutting into my arms very badly. The shoulder straps are too separate for my frame. Also the wires and the fabric of the cups come up to high on the sides and it feels uncomfortable. I think the whole bra is just kinda too big for me.
+ stable construction
+ ... good support even for heavy boobs
- shoulder straps are too separate for my frame
- wires too wide and too tall
- shallow cups, not very roomy on top (does not affect me since the cups are too big)
- band is rather stretchy
I don't know what I do with it yet, maybe I sell it or keep it for “size fluctuations” and alter down the band. But altering the band would not solve the wire issues, so I think it has to go.
