Goddess Response: Marilyn, have you tried our Goddess Keira Banded Underwire Bra GD6090 bra? Keira is one of our most popular styles and Keira is available in yummy colors. The fabrication is a silky smooth satin simplex –no lace.
If you’re looking for a band-less bra (like Goddess Rose Bandless Underwire Bra GD6081) take a peek at fabulous Abi Bandless Bra EL8100 in our sister brand Elomi. Abi features a fashionable subtle floral print in a satin simplex fabrication. Band-less bras are particularly comfortable for short-waisted ladies.

Goddess Response: All brands will fit differently depending on style and fabrication. If you’re accustomed to wearing a more “forgiving” stretchy bra, you’ll most likely need to go up a cup or even several in Goddess. Goddess is designed to provide a “custom fit” so we use a more rigid fabrication for the ultimate in lift and support. This style does tend to run a bit small in the cup (it’s pared down under the arm and in the center for a modern sexy look).
GD6081 is available to D5, so you could go up another cup size. If you need a style with larger cup sizes you might want to try the banded version (Goddess Rose Banded Underwire Bra GD6080) which is offered to a K-cup (D8).
If you’re in the mood for adventurous, fun and sexy bras check out our Elomi brand. Elomi offers lots of choices in fashionable prints and plunging styles, some of which are available in D12 cups, so plenty of sizes to choose from for that perfect fit!

We’re so happy you love the look and fit of this style… so do we! It might be that you’re not adjusting your breast tissue into the cups properly: Be sure to “swoop and scoop” your breast tissue from the back to the front into the cups. The back end of the under-wire should sit behind the breast tissue on your rib cage. This will make all the difference in how the bra fits, and most of all how it feels.

It sounds as if the cup is fitting you, but if the band is riding up it’s a sure sign the band is too big. We recommend you try a smaller band and a larger cup for that perfect fit. You would wear Universal Cup Size 44D4.

You’re absolutely right. Finding the correct size is very important, and I’m glad you’re not giving up the search! Even the best bra in the world can’t do the job if it’s in the wrong size. If you need a larger cup size, perhaps try Goddess Rose Banded Underwire Bra 6080, the banded version of Goddess 6081. Goddess 6080 has slightly more coverage, and it’s offered to a J-cup, so you can go up in the cup as much as you need to.

Unfortunately not every style works for every body. Sometimes it takes a bit of “trial and error” to find that perfect size and style –and that process can be quite frustrating! You might want to try Abi Elomi bra 8100
in our sister brand Elomi. Abi is bandless, and cut lower in the center front with fully adjustable straps. Elomi is UK-sized, so you would wear a 36FF (36 D5) or 36G (36 D6).

The Kiera is probably a better choice for you. There is also the Elomi Caitlyn bra style 8030 that would be a great choice for you in the 38G. It gives great support and the simplex fabric is similar to the fabric of the Kiera bra. The Caitlyn also has a center-pull strap that will stay on your shoulders better.
Consumer Reporting from NY
It is possible that you purchased an incorrect size. When measuring yourself to get the band size measure right under your breasts where the wire goes and make sure it is super tight. Then do not add any inches to your measurement and that is your correct band size. Keep in mind that if you go down in the band you have to go up in the cup. For example your 46D is equal to a 44DD or a 42DDD and so on!

Was it too small in the band or the cup? This style usually runs true to size!
