HerRoom Response: You comment that you are petite in height. The wide sides could be too large for you if you are really short waisted.
Coobie Response: You should try style Coobie 9042, which is cut slightly different. There is a slight chance that you may have a defective one that was sewn incorrectly. This bra fits "almost every body" but not 100% of the population.
