hello! I've been a part of this community for over two years, measuring bras and studying bra fit. ... I'm way more comfortable with my body than I was two years ago and I've come a long way. You would think that I'd be an expert by now, but I still have bra fit issues, and I am learning new things all the time.

My ribcage is very tiny, as you can see by my measurements. 26 and 28 bands are hard to come by as well and usually I just hook 30 bands on the tightest hook. That said, I have very little squish in my ribcage, so those 28 bands and 30 bands aren't that uncomfortable.

My tissue always escapes from wires. I used to think that the cause was the wires being too narrow, so I bought bras with super wide wires to fix the problem. Betsey Johnson Forever Perfects worked really well at first. But I started to notice that these wires were too wide. The wires marks on my body were too far from the border of my actual breast tissue. What on earth could be the cause of my tissue escaping!

Band size, cup width, cup depth. Those are the three main factors that together make the perfect bra fit (read in PPG narrator voice). I already know what band size works for me, so there's no changing that. I have to go back to my original cup width, so there's no changing that either. The only issue left is cup depth. If tissue is escaping from the cup, and the cup width is fine, then that means that the cup depth must be increased. So now I have to find deeper cups, cups with more projection.

Who would have thought... I always thought that I was small and therefore shallow. It's taken me two years to figure out that I'm not as shallow as I think I am. Now I'm back at square one. I thought I had it all figured out!

This is the long way of saying, please ignore all my reviews, because I didn't know what I was talking about.
