As you know, the same style can look totally different on varying body types.
I just want to make sure you’re ‘swooping-and-scooping’ all of your breast tissue from the back to the front into the cups. This will change the fit of the bra dramatically and will ensure all of the breast tissue is brought forward, and won’t be sitting under your armpits (please refer to Tomima’s “3 Steps to a Fabulous Fit”).
Alternatively you might want to “cross over” to our Fantasie brand and try fantasie 4520. This style is a foam molded T-shirt bra with a slightly more defined shape than EL1220. The wires are placed closer together in the front between the breasts, which brings the breast tissue more forward. I would suggest you go up in the cup in this style to a 38DDD.

Straps cutting into the shoulders is often an indication that the ”body” of the bra isn’t doing enough to support the breasts. 90% of the support should come from the band and cups working together; and only 10% of the support should be coming from the straps –they’re there to help, but not to do the lion’s share. Usually it means the cups are too small, and the band is too big.
