Bra fitting help » Band is too long, but what about baggy cups?


Freya » Summer Haze Balcony (3991) » 32F 32:7

The band is too long, but I understand this is typical of Freya bras. I fasten it on the tightest hook and do the swoop-&-scoop, and my boobs fill the cups pretty well, except for a slight wrinkling and gap in the upper part of the right cup (my smaller boob). The wires match the line of my breast root along the sides, but on the right boob the wire is slightly in front of the root line, so I'm thinking the cups are too small OR I need wider wires. The bottom of the wire is about a finger width below my IMF, so I'm not filling the cups completely at the bottom. By the end of the day, the wires have crept down and are digging into my ribs, and the cups gap at the top. The straps tend to slip off, too. I know I need a shorter band, but I'm not sure about the cup size. Is it too big or too small? This bra is a 32F (UK size). If I go down to a 30 band and up to an FF cup, will that fix the problems? Or maybe the shape isn't ideal for me. I can wear this bra as is, and it looks pretty good under clothes, but I want to understand how to choose the correct size.
