I got this bra in a giveaway/exchange here on Bratabase. Previously I tried a size 34K which was too big. For more information about this bra in general, see my review of the 34K - Bravissimo » Melrose Bra (SB25). I took the chance to try this in 34JJ which I assume would be my Bravissimo size for all bras that have a band that runs very tts or small.
The 34JJ fits better than the 34K, so there is that. I find the band very stretchy and it almost feels like it rides up. It does not really but I'd prefer a tighter band. The cups ... are a typical old school full cup shape which gives natural and not very uplifted look. The wires are too wide for me, like always. There is some wrinkling on bottom towards the sides of the cups and where the cup is empty. The cups are very tall. I can fit all my breast tissue inside of the cups, but the top section of the cups is pushing my boobs down.
Today I wore the bra for a full day while doing some housework, I can say that I did not get any pain from it, so that is a good thing. It looked okay under clothing. I felt like I had to pull the band down a few times. It did not ride up much, probably not more than 1 cm. Also the bra got less supportive over the day, at the end of the day I was glad to take it off, it looked even more sad than in the morning when I took the pictures, almost downward pointy. I felt like my boobs pushed down the bra at the front.
I think I could try a 32K or 32JJ even but I don't think I will bother. I don't like the shape it gives me and I think as soon as the cups are not on the bigger side anymore that top section would push my boobs down even more and there would be overspill.
