Bra fitting help » It fits?
Curvy Kate » Daydreamer Balcony Bra (CK5401) » 28GG 28:10
There are wrinkles at the top of the cup.
The center gore is too high, wide and digs in a little.
The band feels right but I'm not sure if it's seems right

I had this one and the lace is a bit loose on it, the wrinkling could just be cosmetic. Cups felt wide and shallow. CK and Panache also have very wide gores. You could try bending them out so they don't dig into you. It's not an ideal shape but unless you go Polish, UK bras in a 28 band are going to be stretchy and loose, and the gores wide.

by the measurements the band looks on the loose side but you will have a hard time finding much that is tighter. I think that bra runs wide in the cups - the wires go well past your boob on the outside, right? rather than curving around and touch the side of the breast? I think size-wise its ok, shape-wise its not ideal. but again I think your size is not easy to find.

This bra shows every sign of having a band that is much too tight, disguising the fact that the cup is larger than you need (it is pulled/wrapped tightly around you due to the excessive band tightness). This is NOT your fault though... as I mentioned in my response to another poster above I think there is something wrong with the measuring instructions currently--we keep seeing new posters/users who are being assigned band sizes that are ridiculously tight for them. If this bra didn't have an oversized cup compensating slightly for the band tightness you would probably be in serious pain... this is so snug that it is distorting the cups and orienting them east-west.
Anyway.. The first rule of bra-fitting is to wear a band only as tight as you need--not "as tight as you can bear without dying" lol! A 30 band should be much better. For cup size, at least 1 size down (30FF) might be good... it is hard to guesstimate but if you take the "lying down" single breast perimeter that usually is helpful in figuring out the ideal cup depth for most bras. Try to balance the breast so it represents your breast dimensions when supported and does not hang too much off the side of the body.
