Bra fitting help » Gore wires shift sideways, what does it mean?
Freya » Expression Plunge Bra (5491) » 32FF 32:8
After having tried 30F and 30FF in this style, 32FF seems to fit well enough, even though my smaller boob doesn't 100% fill out the cup. However, the gore wires are doing something weird. They don't stay centered in between my breasts but kind of shift towards either one (see photo). It gets uncomfortable after a while. My question: what does this mean? Is it a known symptom of a specific bra issue, and can it be fixed? As a newbie still figuring out my breast shape: I think I have broad roots and am at least a bit projected, but that's about all I know.

You've got it in the fit issues. The gore is too wide for the space between your breasts--just slightly, as, to my understanding, when it's much too wide, the gore will just fully sit on breast tissue and not tack. A lower plunge might work or you'll probably be able to find bras with a narrower gore than this. I know Polish bras tend to have very narrow gores, but beyond that, I can't say I pay much attention, as I've got quite a bit of space between my boobs.

It does look like the cup width is too wide for you too. Like the girls would fit better being a little bit more front and center. When I imagine where the center of your breast tissue is (looking at the picture of you head on) it is closer to the distal end of your clavicle rather than centered over the left or right section of your torso. The extra cup width kind of spreads your breast tissue over a wider portion of your chest. Of course, having that narrower gore already discussed will help with that positioning.
The bra is a lovely colour on you and I know that others have successfully crossed over the gore with a stitch or two if this is a bra that you would like to keep and is otherwise comfortable.

This same thing happened to me, with this bra. I just thought the bra was defective. It was painful as soon as I put it on. Sorry, I can't help!
