GD6121 is offered to a D11 cup, so you can go up as many cups as you need. It also has movable shoulder pads on the straps for the ultimate in cushy comfort.

Goddess Response: If your bra is riding up in the back it’s a sure sign the band is too loose for you. The band in GD6093 does run fuller than GD304 did, so please try going down in the band and up in the cup in this style before you give up on Goddess. It could make all the difference in how the bra fits and I think you’ll be very happy with the results.

If your band is riding up, it’s usually an indication that the band is too big. Also, it’s just as important to adjust your breast tissue into the cups, as it is to find the correct size and style: Make sure you ‘swoop and scoop’ all of your breast tissue from the back to the front into the cups... –this will completely change the fit of the bra! Please refer to Tomima’s 3 Steps to a Fabulous Fit to help show you the way to that perfect fit!

Very often it’s the size, not the style which is not working. Even the best bra in the world won’t be able to do its’ job (to lift and support the breast tissue) if it’s the wrong size. Most of the support for your breasts should come from the body of the bra (the cups and the band working together for that lift and support) not the straps. We often find ladies are wearing their bands too big, and their cups too small. The band should fit snuggly around the torso (like a hug) for optimum support. If the band is too big, it will ride up and the breasts will fall forward kind of like a see-saw... –not a good look! Fortunately Goddess 6093 goes to an H-cup, so you have several more cup sizes to choose from. Please refer to Tomima’s 3 Steps to a Fabulous Fit
to help you.

Judging by what you say, it seems that you’re depending on the straps for your support: Most of the support for your breasts should come from the body of the bra (the cups and band working together for lift and support) not the straps. We often find ladies are wearing their bands too big, and their cups too small. The band should fit snuggly around the torso (like a hug) for optimum support. If the band is too big, it will ride up and the breasts will fall forward kind of like a see-saw... –not a good look!
Perhaps try going down in the band and up in the cup (52D4). Don’t be afraid to go down several band sizes, and up several cup sizes if you need to. Please refer to Tomima’s 3 Steps to a Fabulous Fit

I promise you our sizing hasn’t changed, but it can be confusing when you compare UK, U.S. and European sizing. The absolute easiest thing to do is to look at the U.S. sizing if it’s an American brand, and look at the UK sizing if it’s a UK Brit brand. We found when we listed UK, U.S. and European sizing on the same tag, many customers didn’t know where to look on the tag and got even more confused. This way no matter where you look on the tag the size will correspond to the “nationality” of the brand.

It sounds very much like you’re not in the correct size. This style goes up to a 56H, so there are plenty of cup and band sizes to play with to find the perfect size for you. Sometimes it takes a bit of “trial and error” to find the size you need, but it’s oh-so-worth the effort! The payoff is lift, support and most of all comfort!

We’re so glad you love this bra - now we just have to tweak the size a bit to get the fit just right for you. If you’re finding the cup is too large, just go down a cup to a 48B. The straps are adjustable too, so you can make them longer or shorter according to your needs. This should make the fit just about perfect. Please refer to “Tomima’s 3 Steps to a Fabulous Fit”
to give you more guidance.

6093 is a wonderful bra, but of course it must be the correct size to be able to provide the lift and support you’re looking for.
Very often we find that women are wearing their bands too big and their cups too small, and if the band is too big around the torso, it will ride up in the back and the breasts will fall down in the front (just like a see-saw or a teeter-totter)…
Most of the support should come from the body of the bra, so the band should be snug –like a hug. If this scenario sounds like it might apply to you, you might want to try our Alice soft cup bra 6040: Alice goes to a K-cup, so you could try going down in the band and up one or even two cup sizes for that “custom fit”. Also Alice offers fuller coverage than God6093 for maximum support. And you mentioned that you were excited at the prospect of owning a black bra: Alice is available in Black.

I know how difficult it is to transition from a style you’ve relied on for many years to a new version! Sometimes you have to experiment a bit with sizing to find the perfect fit which can be frustrating.
Most of our 304 customers have been very happy with #6093 once they’ve found their correct size: If the back of the bra ‘sticks out’ it could mean you need to go down a band size, and up a cup size. Perhaps try a 54DD.
Gail from Medford, MA, USA
Goddess 6093 is a wonderful bra, but of course it needs to be the correct size in order to provide the support and comfort you’re looking for.
Is the band riding up your back? If so, the band is too big, and yes you need to go down to a 54-band.
If only the cups are too big, just go down in the cup size to a DD.
If you’re finding both cup and band too big, order a 54DDD. The band will be a band size smaller, and the cup will be a cup size smaller.
Karen from New Lenox, IL
We agree, Keira is a wonderfully supportive bra, and pretty too!
It could be you have a petite upper torso (not much room from the underside of the breast to the shoulder) and often the sides of a bra will come up higher under the arms with this figure type, as there’s so little room… Generally we recommend going down in the cup for a bit less coverage: Perhaps try a 42DD.
Renata, I know it’s very frustrating to wade through new styles and sizing when you’re accustomed (and comfortable) with what you’ve worn in the past. Technology has come a long way, and we can push the boundaries of size and design –and sometimes change is good!
I hope you’ll try our Alice bra (GD6040) one of our very favorite styles! Alice is a gorgeous-all-over French lace built on an M-frame for perfect bust separation. The cup and band of Alice is slightly more generous than Kiera, and provides maximum support. I’d recommend you try a 48H.
