Bra fitting help » 34 G doesn't fit 32HH doesn't fit, where to next?
Panache » Dahlia Balconnet Bra (7291) » 32HH 32:12
I've been wearing 34G's but haven't been completely happy with the fit. Found this site and was sized as a 32HH, bought the cheapest 32HH on amazon just to see how it fit. The band feels awesome, way nicer than my 34's but the cup is definitely too big. Also the straps can't be tightened anymore then they already are. Any tips on where to go from here?

Well, for one thing 32HH and 34G are 2 cup volumes apart, not 1-- so there is already a cup volume in between the two that you might want to try.
So let's say you know you weren't comfortable in 34G and don't want to go back to that--you might want to try a firmer band with the same cup volume as a 34G. Then you'd be in a 32GG. But if you wanted that firmer band, while also going up +1 in absolute cup volume you'd then go to 32H (single H in UK sizing).
Of course it's hard to give very specific suggestions without knowing what the problems were with your 34G bras but trying a smaller cup size definitely seems like the first step! If you can say why the fit wasn't great in 34G we might be able to suggests some brands and designs.
Another observation just based on your measurements and photos: when you have small shoulders, a lot of the so-called balconnet styles by UK brands can be hard to fit due to how far apart the straps are. Some people have really tiny shoulders and feel fine angling the straps in on almost all their bras, but even if you are one of these people, it's a good idea to at least try on some bras that have straps closer together if only to be able to see how the cup volume works without the slight distortion of edge and overall shape that occurs when we angle them in sharply.
