    32B

    Didn't fit

    This bra is gorgeous. It works really well for shallow, wide set breasts. My only issue with this bra was that the band was too big for me. That's just because I had ordered the wrong size though. In most little bra company bras, I'm either a 28C or a 30B. In their Sascha bra, however, I'm a 32A.

    I don't wear this bra very often because every time I do wear it I can't wait to take it off at the end of the day. I feel like it’s slighty constricting but it might just be the style (I'm not a fan of padded/push-up bras). I can say that the cup separation suits me well. Since I don't wear it very often I'm not sure if it stays in place throughout the day. It is quite beautiful and I'm curious to see how it would fit in a different size but given the amount of padding I don't think I will be buying another one.

    • I would suggest buying a larger size. This bra has entire inch less of cup depth that you need. You would probably fit the 28B or C much better. And remember, the larger the cup size, the less padding. I am interested in what your circumferential measurements are? A 28" rib cage and a 30" bust (may be, I'm guessing here). Let me know, I'd like to help you find bras! I've gone through almost all your bras and they all appear to be too small for you in cup depth. With a horizontal perimeter of 5.5" inches, your cup depth should be about the same but the majority of them are 5". If you could post pictures of you in the bras, it will help ALOT with figuring out your shape and the style of bra that you need.

    • Thank you! You are absolutely correct that I am 28 rib cage and 30 bust. I've recently discovered that most of my bras are too small and so I've started searching for 30B's. I tried on the Natori Feathers in 30B at Nordstrom and it fits great. I recently purchased a Victoria's Secret bra in 30B that is pretty good but still doesn't seem shallow enough. I will try and post that at some point. I'm having a hard time finding bras that are shallow enough and reasonably priced. I've only tried a few 28 bands (all were A cups) and they all were too tight in the band (with the exception of a the TLBC Courtney which has a very stretchy lace band). However, I do realize a cup that is too small can cause the band to feel too tight. I've yet to try any 28B or 28C mostly because 28 bands are harder to find but I wonder if that would be more appropriate considering my bust measurement is 30" and I probably shouldn't be wearing a band size that matches my bust measurement.

      When you say "The larger the cup size, the less padding" does this mean larger cup sizes are literally manufactured with less padding?

      Thanks again for your input. I will consider posting pictures.

    • Yes mahcin A D cup bra will have less padding then a C cup bra, a B cup bra with less padding than an A cup bra. Although the little bra company may have less of a difference in padding then most brands.

    28B

    Fits

    This is the best fitting bra I own so far. It gapes slightly on my smaller boob, but is perfect otherwise. The band is snug but comfortable for me (25-26" underbust) on the looser hook. Unlike the Lucia bra, this one is made for wider set breasts. I would definitely recommend this for shallow, wider set breasts. The TLBC website says that this bra runs looser in the band and slightly bigger in the cups than their other bras. In my opinion sizing down from your regular TLBC bra size is not necessary. The band stretches to 28 inches and I think getting an A would cause quadboob. One thing I will mention is that the straps are a bit short. I had to adjust them to their longest, but I am also pretty tall, so this might not be a problem for petites.

    30B

    Didn't fit

    I like this bra a lot, but the cups are far too small and provide very little coverage. When I swoop & scoop, my nipples are pretty much sitting above the cups. I wore this one all the time a few years ago and it is very comfortable and pretty. The lace doesn't show through unless you're wearing a very tight or thin shirt, but I will say that the strap design works best under t-shirts and not tank-tops, unless you don't mind really visible/apparent bra straps. I'm tempted to get it in a 30C because I liked it so much when I was smaller, but I'm not sure the cups will be deep enough.
