All brands fit differently so it’s important to be flexible about your size. European bras often run a cup size smaller than U.S. bras, so it’s not unusual to have to increase the cup size for that perfect fit. If your breasts are being pushed together, you might have to go up in the cup to a 36DD.
In addition, the darts in the bra end less than an inch below the upper stripes. My nipples are not level with my armpits so this bra simply doesn't fit me.
