Bra fitting help » I cannot find bras to fit. I am supposed to be a 36D. Front gores are problems.
Another AooToo in a different style. Love the mesh insert to bring the breasts under control. Still feels like the bottom gore is too wide and it pulls. Also some wrinkling in the cup area. Still concerned about band tightness even though this is a 38 band.

This is a wireless bra, so therefore can not have the same fit requirements as one. With a wireless bra there is nothing that is forcing the gore to lay flat against your rib cage, therefore it never will lay flat against your rib cage. This bra fits you OK for a wireless bra. The wrinkling you have pointed out here is really very tiny and a non-issue (except the wrinkling in the band).
You WILL ALWAYS get lines on your rib cage from a properly fitting bra.
The firmer your band is the LESS it will bite into you because it is not pulling up your back, cutting into any "bacl fat" you may have. You will always get a tiny bit of biting.
This bra is no where near properly fitting you.
You keep saying you are worried about band tightness. All of your fit problems are stemming from the fact that band is TOO BIG for you. The band is RIDING UP your back and WRINKLING because the band is TOO BIG.
Because the band is BIG it forces the straps to support your breasts instead of the band. The band is wrinkling because it is TOO BIG.
Make sure when you put on a bra that you are pulling all your tissue from the sides of your body into the cup. The band needs to be firm enough to keep the tissue in the cup.
I highly recommend checking out Curvy Kate bras in a 32G, 34FF, Tutti Rouge in 34F/32FF (Nicole Bra) and 34FF/32G in the rest of their styles, Freya Half-cup bras in 32FF/34F. Look for bras with shorter cups and vertical seams.
I think once you try on bras that are actually closer your proper size you will start realize how much better it is and how much better it looks and feels. You will actually feel supported and your breasts will look great!
Keep in mind, if you ever think a band is too tight, try the bra on backwards and upside down so that you do not have the cups and straps on. A band should not pull away from the body more than inch or two.
Also keep in mind that a lot of the time a bra will wrinkle and appear to big, but in reality it is not too big, it is just the wrong bra shape for you.
I really hope you follow what I have wrote out here, because you finally start finding a bra the fits well and supports you if you do.
