Try Freya Lyla Underwire Plunge Balcony Bra AA4301. Same plunging silhouette and the same sheer cup as the bra you are returning (Arabella) with a softer fabrication. I own Arabella and can attest to the silkier feel of Lyla!

Megan, to solve the “pointed” shape of this bra, we recommend Freya Lyla Underwire Plunge Balcony Bra AA4301
with a much more rounded silhouette and a similar sexy aesthetic to the “Arabella." As for your concern about coverage and show-through, we recommend Freya Elize Underwire Padded Half Cup Bra AA1173 with a very lightweight, flexible moulding and a low-profile silhouette with a look also simliar to “Arabella”.

Becca, to solve your fit issues we recommend a 30F (Universal Cup Size 4D), sizing down once in the band and up twice in the cup to compensate for the smaller band and to give extra width in the underwire ensuring that it rests on your ribcage and not your breast tissue! For a more rounded shape try Freya Lyla Underwire Plunge Balcony Bra AA4301 in the same sheer, sexy fabric with a less “Madonna” silhouette.

HerRoom Response: Sometimes, when you have a pointy look, you are not fully filling out the end of the cup, and might need to go down a cup size.
Check out our Lyla Bra 4302 style: This bra is semi-sheer with gorgeous floral embroidery on the top cup. Very sexy!

The elomi styles would be a great choice for you. They have great construction and will hold up better for your 38J (38 D10) cup size. If you have not tried them before I would recommend the 8030 caitlyn and the 8100 Abi and Maggie style 8140. These are all great styles that would be a great choice for you and your frame.

It sounds as if this might be more of a cup size issue than a narrow- band issue. You mention that the wire is poking you. This is generally an indication that the cups are too small. The back end of the wires should sit behind the breast tissue on bone. You might want to try a 38F (38 D4) or even a 38FF (38 D5). Don’t forget to adjust your breast tissue into the cups as this will change the fit of the bra completely. Also refer to Tomima’s 3 Steps to a Fabulous Fit
to guide you.
