Bra fitting help » Should I try the size that calculator says?

32DDD is my size
I think this bra fits better than my 34C's.
Down to a 30FF UK is necessary??

It looks like a pretty decent fit in the photos, but you need to see if you feel comfortable. Have you scooped and swooped? Does it feel completely secure with the gore sitting flat against the ribcage but not hurting or moving around? If you do a couple jumping jacks, reach up, reach down and touch your toes and then stand up again, do you stay in the bra or will you be spilling out of the cups? If you press firmly on the wires on your sides, do you feel any pain or discomfort (meaning it is on breast tissue and you may need a wider underwire and/or larger cup?
Also, the one universal tip I give to people who just got into a firmer band size after years of being in a too-loose band: loosen the straps. Wearing an oversized band means you rely excessively on the straps for support, but if you are in a better-fitting bra and continue to tighten them a lot, you will not get the full benefit of the support coming from the band instead of the straps! Your straps should be juuuuust snug enough to (a) stay on, and (b) keep the cups up on you and in place. No tighter. The straps shouldn't do any heavy lifting!

Are there any fit issues that you feel like sizing down would help with?
