While this is a vast improvement from my ill-sized department store bras (42DD's) I still don't think I have the right size yet. I was able to try on the Emily in a 44DD, E, F, FF and G cup and I settled on buying the 44FF. I'm at the stage where I NEED new bras and I will wear it, but it's uncomfortable.
The 44G was probably better, but not by much, and I had to tighten the straps a lot as there was just way too much upper chest coverage. The 44FF quad-boobs on me a liiiiiiiittle bit, which I didn't notice when I tried it ... on the first time. It's not so much as a full on bump or that it's digging in, but where the lace is denser it doesn't have as much give as the outer edge, so I have a bit of a ski jump going on there.
Also, my boobs are trying to turn a corner at the side where the underwires sit against my chest/underarm- so I don't think the wires are wide enough? They also like to jab my side boob or underarm fat when I bend over to pick stuff up.
The centre goes DOES lay flat (that's a huge achievement for me, so yay!) but I can't lay down in the bra. The centre gore where the wires are feels like it's pinning me to the bed. So much tension!
I've had it for a week and have been hand washing it in the sink while I shower and I've noticed the straps are starting to curl. I might whack it in the normal wash with my old bras and see if the extra agitation snaps it back into shape.
