Goddess Response:You’re correct, the band on this style does run small and it’s not consistent with how the rest of the Goddess brand fits. If you ordered a 46" band and found it too small, just go up another band size to 48". If the cup fits you in a 46" band, and the 48" band feels right, simply go down in the cup. Your size would be 48DD.
As you know all brands fit differently, and it’s important to be flexible about what size you wear in each brand as it won’t necessarily be the same. Many brands use a very forgiving stretchy fabric in their bands, which doesn’t give the ultimate support you’d expect in a sports bra. Our bands are generally firmer, and the support comes mostly from the body of the bra, and doesn’t depend so much on the straps. In order to accomplish this the band needs to be firm to anchor the bra, and to support the breast tissue.

It sounds as if you need a deeper cup for better bust separation. If the cup is too shallow it will force the breast tissue together (in a too small space) and give that dreaded “smooshed” appearance. You’re right Goddess 5056 IS designed as a sports bra… If you’re looking for a soft cup bra which offers more separation you might want to try a style with a four-part cup. The seams shape and support the breasts and create a deeper cup which will help with separating the breast tissue. Goddess has several styles to choose from, all very pretty and feminine. You might like Keira 6093, a gorgeous satiny bra with a sheer top cup for a glamorous look. If you prefer more coverage Alice GD 6040 is the bra for you. It features an “M” frame for perfect bust separation and a more defined shape. Or you could try Rose 6083, a seductive all-over lace bra. I want you to know you have choices!
Goddess Response: It really does sound like you need a larger cup size. This bra should feel very comfy!
