We recommend going up one or even two band sizes in this style, and then down in the cup. It’s so important to “swoop and scoop” all of your breast tissue from the back to the front into the cups, as this will make all the difference in how a bra fits. Please refer to Tomima’s 3 Steps to a Fabulous Fit
for some helpful hints.

As you know even the most perfect bra in the world won’t be able to provide lift and support if you’re in the incorrect size. Sometimes you have to experiment with cup and band sizes to find that perfect fit. God689 features light boning in the cups and body of the bra for the ultimate in lift and support, so I’m confident it will work if you can find the correct size for you! If you’re finding the band is too loose, go down a band size (if the band is too loose, the cups will lose support as well). Make sure all of the breast tissue is contained in the cup, and the wire sits behind the breast tissue on the chest wall (sometimes you’ve got to go up in the cup to make this happen).

It’s difficult to give you specific advice as you don’t mention what size was too small… Perhaps try going down in the band to a 42, and up in the cup to a FF for a snugger band and more tummy control. You could also layer a control garment under or over the bra for maximum tummy smoothing.

If you have ‘chubs’ over the cup, you cannot go any smaller in the cup. It’s so important to adjust your breast tissue into the cups properly as this can change the fit of the bra dramatically! Please make sure you’re “swooping and scooping” the breast tissue from the back to the front into the cups. I think you’ll find the bra will fit beautifully, and look and feel completely different.

We’re sorry this style didn’t work for you, but as we all know not every style is for everybody. You don’t mention exactly what was happening with the fit when you adjusted band and cup. Was the band too small or too big? Was the cup too small or too big? It’s difficult to determine what the actual problem could be without knowing the details. We find if you have a tummy, you some times have to go up two band sizes. Glad to hear your lucky friend has a beautiful new bustier!
