Bra fitting help » New to all this: does this Curvy Kate bra fit?
Curvy Kate » Top Spot Balconette Bra (CK015100) » 40H 40:11
I'm completely new to this - was wearing a 44D just the other day. This, as per my ABraThatFits calculator, is a 40H Uk size. It's super comfy, but I just can't for the life of me figure out if it fits right.
- It's gapping/wrinkling a bit up top, I suppose this is due to having bottom heavy boobs.
- I feel like there's so much more tissue in the bra that used to be outside of it before. Is that normal.
FYI: I have super squishy, malleable boobs.
Thank you so much in advance for your advice!

Is the bra pulled up right tight under your breasts (into you "IMF" - inframmamary fold)? If you can't pull it up anymore it could mean that it's alredy as high as it needs to go or the band is too tight at the moment.
How does the band feel? Can you take a deep breath comfortably with it on? Since your comfortable ribcage measurement is over 40", I suggest trying it on with a band extender to see how it feels/fits or trying a band size up and cup size down (or two).When you first try on bras, try a couple different sizes from places you can return, that way you start to figure out your new size and what works/doesn't work. If you want to try this bra again, I'd suggest a 42G, 42GG, and 40GG to try. The cups may be a shape mismatch for you, or you can always try a size down to see if that solves the gaping issue. The cups come up quite high, so I think it's still going to gap with a cup size down (shape mismatch).
Is this bra hurting your "tail of spence" (armpits?). Again, because it comes up a bit high on the sides under your armpits, you may just need a different bra.

From what I know this bra's supposed to have really short cups, maybe try going down a cup size? Straps also look overtightened which might hide a too big cup problem.
