    Didn't fit

    After receiving this bra in the mail I was disheartened that it didn't fit, until I made it fit that is. Usually I have an issue with the upper lace sections in bras being too tight so I assumed that hey, I must be FOT. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. WRONG. After trying this on I realized that my whole life of having boobs really has been a lie and I am actually FOB/Immediately projected with center fullness. So me, being the crafty bitch that I am, did some quick alterations (took in part of the upper lace section, converted the bra into a racer back and took in the ... gore [special thanks to @brasihate]) the bra fit like a DREAM. (Excuse the awkward wrinkle the first alteration attempt was a bit shoddy). No more awkward space at the bottom of the cup/upper lace cutting into the top of my breasts. For once there is actually enough immediate projection (I think it might actually be comparable to polish brands? Because there is *extra emphasis on* A LOT). My boobs actually hold the wires in place after i unhook the bra which could actually make for a pretty cool magic trick. As for the band I can still easily get it onto the last hook which leads me to assume that either my real band measurement is either a lot smaller than I'd thought or every bra brands bands that ive tried aren't actually 28s. So far this has happened with every 28/30 band that I get, the scenario usually goes like this:
    》buys 28 or 30 band bra
    》Before stooping, scooping, wrestling, swooping, jiggling, and wrestling again the bra feels like it fits fine on the second hook, first hook if I'm lucky
    》After wrestling my titties into their prisons I then realize that I actually need to tighten the hooks even more than what I first thought which then puts me on the third row of hooks
    》insert minor defeat
    *deep inhale*
    BUT the underwires are a bit sturdy, I feel like it'll become more comfortable with wear and washing as the Elsa did.
    All in all I would rate this a major win due to the fact that this bra fits for the majority of the part (After alterations), even my SO was excited when he saw that a bra actually FIT me for once and not just kinda but enough so that I could make do. I can already tell that my search for a bra that fits is coming to a much needed end (for our wallets and my sanity). Stay tuned for next time!

      After seeing your previous fit requests, I'm not surprised a 28KK fits, with alterations. Congrats!

    Melody 28KK
    I am adding this bra for data/informational purposes only. This Bra is not owned by me at the time of addition to the database.

    Melody is an unpadded underwire balconette bra. I tried it in black, though I think it comes in other colors as well.

    The band measures 26” to a max of 31.5” making with 3 hooks and 3 rows of eyes.

    Cup Depth as measured by:
    1 Hovering the cup between the knees, then placing the tape measure into the cups without any resistance.
    This measurement is: 15”

    2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, ... to the maximum resistance.
    This measurement is: 16.5”

    I feel these two figures give you a general idea of the minimum and maximum depth that the cup can accommodate, just like the flat and stretched band measurements do with bands. Since Bratabase only has one cup field, I enter the larger of the two, as it’s this larger number that determines if a cup is going to fit me or not since I am on the max end of the cup scale, but do realize that some may need the lower number to determine fit for their needs, so I will always include both figures in the reviews for full disclosure.
