I'm not sure, but I think this item also runs small elsewhere, besides the cups. It seems strange, as someone else mentioned, to buy shape wear based on the bra size. The very nature of this garment I found, even though I went a cup size up as recommended, my breasts appeared smaller since they were being pulled closer to my body. I love the idea of sewn in garters and the hold was firm, but I had to return this item. I found the fabric to be rough as well. I decided to get the Flexees Singlet instead (two in fact) and am extremely happy with the fit and effect, probably because it is sized by body, not cup size like the Rago.
Rago Response:Cup configuration varies with tissue mass and density of the breast. Please try a larger cup and and over all garment size or maybe 2 sizes, as the shaping power and the tolerance levels are different based on the body mass density. Bra size is used because the size of the breast is the most unforgiving measurement. That is why there are two measurements, the cup and breast plate demonstration. For example, a 38B is a two component designation versus just small medium and large, etc. The breast shaping and spacing is a matter of style of the garments cup and body construction. Some are more, some are less wide, depending on the brand. We regret that you returned this product, but are glad that you found a garment that satisfies you. Rago products generally satisfies a firmer shaping requirement. Thank you for you comments.
