6041 is one of our very favorite bras! Before you give up on this style, please make sure you’re positioning yourself into the bra properly as this can make all the difference in how a bra fits and how comfortable it is. If all else fails and you just can’t cope with an under-wire, you might want to try our Jayne bra 6002.

Ideally your bra should be comfortable throughout the entire day!
Unseen, it’s difficult to comment as there are so many “fit factors” involved. Not only style, and correct band and cup size, but even how you position yourself into the bra: Breast tissue in front of the under-wire, center gore tacking between the breasts, and the band tight enough that it doesn’t ride up your back… It bears repeating how vital it is to bring all of the breast tissue into the cup. This will make all the difference in how a bra fits, and most importantly how it feels!
If all else fails, and you just can’t bear the thought of an under-wire, perhaps try our 6040, the soft cup version of 6041: Same wonderful support, without the under-wires.

If the band is riding up your back, it’s a sure indication that the band is too big around. It’s the “body” of the bra that’s supporting the breasts; the straps are helping, but straps do not do the bulk of the work. In order to accomplish this, the band should be parallel to the floor and straight across the back, and should be snug enough to stay down

Very often it’s not so much the style but the size which can make the breasts look ‘strange’. From your description it sounds very much that the cups are too small.
I’d suggest going up a cup size to a 46L in this style –it’ll make all the difference you’ll see.

If you wear a 34JJ in Panache product, the equivalent size in Goddess would be a 34N.
6041 offers an L-cup which would be too small for you (if the cup is too small the band very often feels too tight).
You might like Kiera 6090 which offers an N-cup but starts at a 36-band which would probably be too big for your torso.
I suggest you try crossing over to our UK brands Fantasie, Freya or Elomi, all of which offer JJ- and K-cups. One of our very favorite bras is Caitlyn in our Elomi brand –very gorgeous and sooo supportive! You might have to experiment with size a bit, but I’d recommend a 34JJ to start.

Unfortunately it’s difficult to advise you without more specific details. Most of our customers who were loyal 106 wearers are thrilled, and I daresay even happier with 6041, which leads me to believe it’s more about size than style. This could actually be the best bra in the world for you, but it will never work if you’re wearing it in the wrong size.
I’d bet you’d fall in love with 6041 if you find the correct size! Very often, that will mean going down in the band and up in the cup for that perfect fit.
