Amoena Response: The straps on this bra have a “ballet back” for women that have shoulder issues. We are sorry if you found the straps too long.

You are correct a 42 should be a 42, but sometimes the color can make a slight difference. When you dye the fabric sometimes the material will shrink and colored bras do fit a little bit more snug than nude bras do. The 2114 and 2123 are both shallow fitting bras but are different in appearance. We are sorry that you are unhappy with the bra. May we suggest the NEW Amoena Ruth Soft Cup Bra 2873 instead.

If you are looking for a bra that has more padding may we suggest the Lara bra 2674
. It is a molded cup bra. It does run a little big in the cup so you would go down in the cup than what you normally wear..

The Bella 2114 is a shallow fitting bra by Amoena standards and has the construction in the back of a “ballet back”. The straps do come in a little shorter. This allows them to sit on the shoulders better for women who have slopping shoulders. All of our bra straps do adjust some lengths.

Amoena Response:Amoena bras should be washed in cold water with a mild lingerie wash and line dried. We haven't heard of any problems in the past with this bra shrinking.
Also, not all bras will fit the same, even though they say the are shallow fitting bras. A 38A does not mean that it will fit the same in another style bra.

The bra is set in closer because it has a ballet back for women that have shoulders that might slope or have a problem with straps falling off their shoulders.
Not all bras fit the same when it comes to different manufacturers and you might be a 42A in one style bra, but a 40B in another.
Bras do fit differently on everyone.
We have been making soft cup bras for 30 years. We are sorry this particular bra did not work for you.
