Bra fitting help » Band/cups too small
Panache » Envy Balconnet Bra (7285) » 36GG 36:10
I returned the bra and ordered a size 38GG which fit much better. Thanks!
This is a 36GG Panache Envy Side Support Balconette Bra. The cups are a bit small with some overflow (not pictured as I wasn't properly scooping and swooping) and gore doesn't tack. The band wasn't long enough and I was unable to close up the back by at least 4 inches. I want to get this same bra but in a size that will actually fit for me, and I need help figuring out what size I should order. Thanks!

With just this picture, it's difficult to fully see the fit issues you're talking about, but your ribcage measurements would indicate to me that you should be wearing a 38 band. The 'most important' band measurement to keep in mind is your comfortable ribcage, and even if we were just considering your tight ribcage of 37 inches, I would still say to try a 38 first, as it's better for a bra's band to be a bit too big than a bit too small.
With the picture you have, I also see wrinkling at the cups, but, like I said, with just this picture, it's difficult to tell if this is because of a shape/size mismatch with the bra, because you haven't tightened the straps enough, or because of the way you're flexing your arms. If the wrinkling is because of the way you're flexing your arms, try a 38G. If it's because the cups are a size too big, try a 38FF. If it's because of a shape issue, we'd really require more pictures to know what sorts of bras to recommend to you.
