Bra fitting help » Gore digs in and band too loose?
Panache » Cari Moulded Spacer Bra (7961) » 28F 28:7
The gore dogs in and sometimes leaves a bruise if I keep it on long enough. I also have to tighten the band to the middle or first set of hooks cause it doesn’t feel as secure.

Great bra! Bend the wires for a better fit. 28f is a perfect fit. I hope this helps. 🤞

Panache Bras have a hard tack.
you might want to try another brand if you can't alter it. Here are some alterations https://www.reddit.com/r/ABraThatFits/wiki/alterations/

EDIT: I re-read your post again, I see that you said the "underwire runs too high" in your underarm, you need another bra.
Maybe Comexim Basic Half Cup 3HC Padded Underwire Bra, or Comexim Basic Padded Plunge Underwire Bra https://www.breakoutbras.com/collections/comexim

that's a great question. some people developed an app to convert their UK bra size to their Comexim size, for both Breakout Bras or when ordering directly from Poland. http://comeximcalc.herokuapp.com/
I size up in the band in Comexim personally. So, I would recommend starting with a 28 band in Comexim. But if for some reason you want to a tighter band, then you could size down. Of note: their black bras run tighter than the other colours.
If we used your size of 28F UK, you would order 28G from breakout bras. http://comeximcalc.herokuapp.com/result?band_size=28&cup_size=F&store_name=Breakout+Bras It's a good place to start. They are returnable/exchangable through BreakoutBras.com
some people also go up an additional cup for the 3HC half cup, because the cups are more wide and shallow, so it will create more cleavage.
So, if I had to guess, maybe 28G for the padded plunges from Breakout Bras, and possibly 28GG for their padded half cups (3HC)?? It's questionable.
What size would you recommend? Also do I need a 26 band because my snug underbust is 26.5.
