Chantelle » C Magnifique Unlined Underwire Bra (1891) » 95F 42:6

I'm not sure if it's better to put a request on this bra, that fits really well, or the other bra (Panache Tango) that's close but not quite. In general, I've found this one to fit rather well and comfortably. I was hoping that one of you other lovely ladies that know all things bras might be able to recommend some other brand/styles to try.

I've spent most of my life so utterly over busted that I just settled with whatever I could kind of almost squeeze, and gave up beyond that. When you're a 42N (well, bigger, but it's very difficult to find even that) you only have like 3 options, you make do. Now I'm almost 6 months post-breast reduction, and I'm MUCH smaller, and now discovering more problems (I'm smaller, but shape seems to be difficult) because now there are a crazy number of options with the right size label, but don't actually work.

I've put my measurements on my account, and have included measurements of several of the bras I've tried. From what I can tell, in general, I'm a 42DD or DDD. I think the biggest problem is the wide root. Wide root, but not enough boob (YAY! never thought I'd be able to say that!) to fill most of the cups with the right sized wire.

This particular bra doesn't have any related/recommended others. I've tried the advanced search based on the bra measurements, but I get the feeling I don't actually know what I'm doing.
