Manufacturer needs to improve quality control. I am a previous purchaser of this style of bra, and the same thing happened both times -- the band size varies widely. I'm talking about 3 inches! The first time, all three bras had to be sent back (I'd purchased them through a boutique, so took the bras in, showed them the problem, and they handled it). The replacement bras fit fine. This time, of the three bras I ordered, one fit perfectly, one acceptably (the band is a bit tighter, and the cups seem to be cut a little lower or skimpier or something, so there's a slight bulge at the cleavage -- something not present in the "perfect" bra). The third bra was between two and three inches shorter in the band, so I sent it back. I'm hopeful the replacement will fit.
Please note that I went back to the boutique to be measured before ordering the bras; the fitting consultant at the boutique didn't know how long it might take them to get the bras, due to orders on backorder, so gave me your web address so I could order them myself. I was delighted that I was able to save $18 per bra.
When I can get a bra that fits properly, I'm delighted. And the Anita 5490 is the best solution I've found -- on both visits, it was the only one in the boutique that really fit me right, and I love the soft, non-itchy fabric and the seamless cups. Now if they can just improve the consistency of their product, so that one 44C is the same as the next, I'll be a customer for life.
