    32DD

    Didn't fit

    I have teardrop shaped breasts, shallow on top and full on bottom. They are also wideset, fitting three fingers comfortably in between.

    I was suprised that this bra worked best for me in a 32DD as I usually fit a 32DDD (or 34DD). All of my other Natori/Josie bras have bigger sizes, and the top of these cups even gape slightly on me, so I would say that these run a cup large. 32D definitely had too small cups for me though.

    This bra has a super cute design, the colours are vibrant, and I love the 3-clasp longline style as it feels really good on my back. The front ... adjustments on the straps are SUPER convenient and easy to use (in addition to being a cute red accent colour) and I wish way more bras had this feature. However there are a couple downsides.

    The bottom elastic of the longline doesn't stay down at all. It slowly rides up after a few seconds of wear and creates wrinkles in the fabric. I may try altering it somehow (or maybe fashion tape/glue would work?) but it doesn't bother me too much as I don't tend to wear it with tight shirts. Which would be because the tops of the cups roll. Not very much, bust just enough to show through drapey/tight shirts. I've had this bra for awhile though, but I ran into this problem right away (and I always wash my bras in a lingerie bag on cold).

    The straps are a little wider than comfortable for me personally, but I don't really run issues with them sliding off or anything.

    The gore seems to be too narrow for me. It tacks on the top edge and the bottom of the longline stays flat against my skin (if it isn't riding up) but the center fabric of the gore between the underwires pulls taut and lifts up from my skin. Pressing the underwires towards eachother when I'm wearing it causes the fabric to rest flat against my skin, so I think my wideset breasts are pulling the two sides away from eachother to cause that. This bra might work better for someone with slightly closer-set breasts.

    Looking at the pictures I took of myself in the bra, it seems to look like it rides up slightly in the back although I never have felt like it wasn't flat in the back or supporting me. I'm not sure if its just since the band is so stretchy compared to the clasp that it creates that look, although I also think the band had stretched out some since I bought it (and I've also lost some weight since I last wore it). I tried clasping it on a closer hook, and it still looked like it was riding up, despite not being able to lift away far from the body. (so yeah, def gonna start wearing it a hook in from now on). I can't remember exactly how old this bra is, a couple years or more. Besides the band, it has some fraying spandex threads from the lace mesh, but otherwise has held up quite well. The colours are pretty true to when I first got it and none of the actual construction threads are fraying or loose at all, even with the extra stress from the gore pulling taut constantly.

    This bra fit comfortably but when I scoop and swoop it gives me quadboob. I would say that this fits more like a 32DD.

    32D

    Didn't fit

    This bra is really pretty! It's soft and feels well constructed.

    It -almost- fits me. It's new with tags, but I can fasten the band on the tightest hooks right off the bat. My rib cage measures 32" snug, 31" if I exhale fully and pull the tape super tight, so I'm thinking it might be better for a 34C rather than 32D.

    The gore doesn't sit right, I think because it's closer together than my breasts? I'm not sure. It kind of folds over itself and has extra fabric on either side, but if I pull the sides of the cups near the straps it flattens out.

    The rest of the cup fits well though. I am FOB with shallow breasts that are far apart (2 or 3 fingers between breasts).

    This bra fits me pretty well but I just don't like the feel of the longline bra.
