Bra fitting help » Puckering at bottom of cup

Elomi » Charley Underwire Stretch Lace Plunge Bra (4382) » 36J 36:13

Issue resolved

I returned this bra.

Original problem

Wires may be slightly too wide as there is wrinkling on the side. There is also some puckering in the bottom of cup right above the underwire when I manage to get it in my IMF. Gore tacks but seems like it is sitting on breast tissue right at the top.

I am kinda at a loss on what bras to try next. My breasts come very close together about halfway up my chest (mid point when the girls are supported). I can barely fit my pinky in between them at that point. I believe they are splayed, projected, and somewhat bottom full. Average to narrow roots. Maybe tall roots?

The biggest three issues I keep running into are: gore too high/sitting on tissue even in “plunge” styles, wires running too wide/high on the sides, and wrinkling at the bottom of the cups once I have wiggled to get the wire into my IMF.

Trying to ease back into bra life from being in sports bras/bralettes. I’ve been wearing softcup/wireless bras mostly at this point. In these styles I don’t have to worry about the center gore, but I’m still getting better support than I was. I have another fitting help request wearing a Comexim Ginger Cookie plunge in 36JJ (sized up in cups due to Breakout Bras recommendation). I’ve tried many bras in 36J UK at this point, including: Freya Fancies Plunge (gore on tissue), Curvy Kate lifestyle plunge (gore on tissue, wires too wide), Curvy Kate top spot balcony (wires and straps too wide, gore on tissue), Curvy Kate Wonderfull full cup bra (gore on tissue, wires too wide), Goddess Kayla Full Figure underwire (way too wide, gore too wide/high), Elomi Kim and Matilda plunge styles (wires too wide/high on side, gore sits on tissue).
