Boy finding the right size and the right bra is definitely a journey. I started out in Sept of this year to find my right size and the right bra. This site recommended 36GG to 38FF. Herroom recommended 38H. Before I knew what my size might be, I ordered a Soma 38G, which was fine in the band, but way too small in the cup. After I ordered a Wacoal in a 38G and it was a bit loose in band and too small in cup. I then ordered a 38H in Wacoal and it fit in band but cup was too small. I then ... found out that Soma and Wacoal are US sizes. I ordered a Panache in a 38FF and it was too big in the band and too small in the cup. I ordered a Elomi Amelia in a 38FF and it was loose in the band and too small in the cup. I just ordered this bra in a 38G and the band seems to fit good but the cup is too small. I was going to reorder the Elomi Amelia in a 36GG to see how it might fit and decided to try this bra in a 38G. I am coming to the conclusion that even in the same brand, if the style is different the bra will fit different. Totally confusing! Maybe I should stick with the styles I tried but go up a cup size in some and down a band size and up a cup size in others. Does anyone have any helpful feedback? I am beginning to believe I need a H cup though.

This is my favorite bra. It fits me perfectly. I was originally measured at a boutique as a 38G in UK sizing, but only this Elomi bra and two of my Panache bras fit well in this size. Bratabase seems to recommend bras between 38G-38GG for me, depending on the brand. I'd recommend the Elomi Bijou if you prefer your band a little bigger and a shorter gore height. I think this also has wider cups.
My band size is between a 37.5 and 39, depending on how tightly I hold the tape (if that helps anyone). so if you are a 38-40, you'll probably like the fit of ... the 38 band. Because the band size on the Elomi Bijou is roomy, I would definitely look at measurements before purchasing this bra as you might need to go down in size.
It's really comfortable and works great as a T-shirt bra/everyday bra. So far, I haven't found another bra that fits me as well as this one does. I love it.
Updated Dec. 2016: I've since gained a size in the cup (I'm a 38GG-38H now) and tonight I tried on several of my existing bras and this is the one that still fits the best. The Bijou runs big in the band, so I am able to use it. Its almost a perfect fit, but there's a tiny bit of quad boob on the left side. But otherwise, the straps, the band, the gore and wing placements are fine. This is probably a good choice of bra if you are between a G and a GG or if you like a looser band.
