I recently remeasured myself and am building a new bra wardrobe. There aren't any lingerie shops where I live, that carry a large variety of bras (I really do live on a relatively remote island!) so I need to purchase them from the Internet (Thank you, ABTF and Bratabase!). As it is, I am still trying to figure out (finalise, would be the more accurate term) my correct bra size and shape. Incidentally, the bra size recommended by Bratabase was 34D - 34DD - 34E. I also ordered the Panache Tango Ii Balconnet Bra (3251) in 34DD, which has yet to arrive.
This was the first bra ... from Bratabase's Bra Recommendations. Unfortunately, it wasn't an ideal fit. The cup being WAY too large, I didn't bother taking pictures. Strangely, the bottom of the cup was quite full! The gores dig uncomfortably into my sternum, less so under the armpits. The band was a tad too tight but not overly so, which leads me to suspect that to size up on the band could possibly result in a band that was too loose. I did the "upside down bra" test, the bra still felt slightly tight.
All in all, this was a no-go. So, on to the next one! *fingers crossed*
