The band size fit me perfectly but I was spilling out of the cups above and at the sides in this bra. Although American made 34 DDD's seem to be a perfect size for me generally, I'm finding that I have to go another size up in cup size than generally recommended for European bras. I ordered a 34F (= 34DDD) and see that I would need at least a 34FF in the Tisha bra. However, I'm not sure overall about this bra. I tried a knit shirt over it and can see that if I didn't have the over-the-top spillage, that the form under the knit shirt is very nice. However, the bra feels very "constructed" - I feel like I'm wearing armor. I will exchange this bra, either for a different brand of "t-shirt" bra that is less imposing, or, for a Fantasie 6010 32FF that is an absolutely gorgeous, luxurious, and sexy bra,and one that fits perfectly (all right, actually I just bought it in a 34FF after finding that a 34E in another of Fantasie's styles was too small in the cup - now the cup is perfect but in this style the band runs large so will be exchanging it for the 32FF - it's so beautiful I toyed with keeping it anyway - I hate to let it go, but I know it's better to have it in the correct size in the end).
Despite my disappointment in this bra I am sure that I will find the perfect t-shirt bra from Her Room. The ease of return and exchange makes up for not being able to try on in person. I think I will become better at reading the reviews and figuring out how better to order for my particular body, or, as I find the bras I love, won't have to go through the try and exchange route any more. I did hit "right on" with two of the bras I have bought here. I have at long last found a place that carries beautiful bras that fit me (or will fit me) and I'm like a kid in a candy store!
HerRoom Response:Your comments about going up to a size FF is one we at HerRoom have not heard before. We have heard, however, that this bra does feel tight at first. But, that after a day of wear, the initial firmness seems to go away and becomes comfortable.
