Bra fitting help » need the next bra to try, perfect centre gore, not good wire underneath and side
Bravissimo » Satine Bra (AU15) » 36G 36:9
These are the only bras where the centre gore hasn't hurt me. Any higher and I have to pad them out with cotton wool pads and end up in agony. I also have them a back size up and a cup size down, depending on the time of month i flit between the two.
I like these bras a lot but the underwire under my bust digs in and leaves me with angry red marks and at the sides they do not fully encompass my breast tissue. I really need a recommendation about what bra to try next, especially since having my son my tissue is a lot softer and definitely needs to be scooped up and the pain the wires cause is a lot worse.

Can you double check your measurements? According to what you've entered here, the stretched band is two inches shorter than you're chest circumference. If your back measurement is nearer to 40 inches, I would imagine a 36 band would be quite uncomfortable and ill-fitting.
Buy the way, I just noticed you are new here today. Welcome! I'm sure you will find a lot of great advice and a welcoming community here!

Post-baby bra shopping definitely has its challenges. I have to agree that the band appears too short. Sometimes it helps to focus on the measurement of the band rather than the labelled size - like tighter fitting 40 bands may suit you better. Also, when bands are stretched out too far they are no longer doing a good job of providing flexible support. It also looks like you need more projection at the wire for a good fit - a clearer side picture would help with that and an idea of cup width though you do say that breast tissue is not fully enclosed. Perhaps a different shape of bra - a higher gore with larger band and more cup depth - then watch what kind of cup width snugs into both sides of the breast. I always find it amazing how a well-fitted bra can change the shape and give great support when all those finicky details come into line. Hopefully others have some ideas on brands and styles. Be sure to check out cheaper options for trying out bras.

I will some times in the future post a review of my Elila 1301. It's a different style with more coverage but does the wonders of underwires without the wires. A beautiful very assertive super comfy bra indeed.
Further up the line, you'll find the 1303. Same player shoot again with definitively engineered towards projection performance.
And thanks for using 'encompass', I just learned a new word, spot on, precisely what I feel these two models do to me.
Have a wonderful day, thanks for sharing
