I am just beginning my quest to find a bra that actually fits properly. Like most petite but large-chested women, I've been wearing the wrong bra size for years (An ill-fitting regular bra plus a sports bra over it all through high school...ick!). So this is the first bra I bought online, hoping to find the right size.
I think I might be a 32 in other bras, but the adjustable hooks in the back have a pretty wide range which makes it not ride up at all, when every other 3 band I've had has ridden up horribly. At first I thought I'd have to return the bra because my breasts looked too "pointy," but a friend pointed out that I just wasn't used to having myself not "squished down" with multiple bras and sports tops. Ultimately, I am very happy with this bra. The DDD cup fits perfectly, this is the first time I've had a bra where I don't spill out the top. As for the minimizing, I feel like I look bigger than I usually do, but again, I've only worn high-impact sports bras. I'm really happy with this bra, and I feel like I look lovely for the first time in my life. I'm still trying to figure out bra sizing though, and wondering if I order a 32 in another brand, do I need to get a cup size up? Thanks, HerRoom!
HerRoom Response: You are absolutely right. If you go down a band size, you need to go up a cup size to maintain the same cup volume.
