The Esme is not a minimizer bra, but as like most seamless bras it does minimize more than a seamed bra. Please refer to Tomima's 3-steps to a fabulous fit to be sure you are in the correct size. If the gusset does not lay flat and you have overage on the sides the cup is definitely too small which means you are a 38HH (D8) or J (D10) depending on how much spillage you had in the 38H (D9). There are very limited styles in your size that are offered in smooth cups. The elomi Hermione bra 8120
is available in a 38HH (D8) cup which might be an option for you. The “spacer-fabric” is very soft and comfortable and has a great fit.

The Esme is a more relaxed fit than the 4510 and sometimes can give the minimizing effect because it is a seamless bra without the foam. The 4510 definitely gives a more uplifted and projected look.

The new Esme bra is fitting true to size or a little bit full. You might want to try the 38F if the cup was too small. The smooth cup is great for under t-shirts and has a great toed-in back for sleeveless tops!

If you want a bra with a wider band and a wider strap you might want to try Elomi Hermione bra 8120
. It has a smooth cup and wider in the back to help control fluffy bits in the back.
