The cup was a little small for my bust but was the highest available in my size. I don't mind squeezing into it since it provides superior lift, separation, and the strength of a posture bra without being one. I highly recommend this bra to anyone with a larger chest who needs a good underwire bra. It's well worth the hefty price.
I agree, it is annoying to have to guess your size depending on the brand, however I find I have to do a bit of the same when buying jeans I’m not familiar with…Through trial-and-error, and patience, it is possible to find the perfect fit! Generally speaking, if the under-wire feels like it’s ‘binding’ the cup is too small, also if the breast tissue is “packed” into a cup that’s too small, it can distort the shape of the breasts and not show them off to their best advantage. You might try a 44E (DDD).

We love to hear about the girls being held high, however we know how uncomfortable it can be when the bra digs into the underarm! This bra has a very generous cup, and sometimes we’ll go down in the cup size for a perfect fit. Alternatively, you might try Elomi 1220
(a molded foam cup) but it doesn’t add bulk. It’s a bit more tapered, cut lower in the front and under the arms.
HerRoom Response: This is not the best bra for someone who is petite in stature.
