HerRoom Response: When purchasing a minimizer, you should buy in your nomal bra size - do not go up or down a size.
HerRoom Response: This symptom is a classic indication that you need to go up at least 1 cup size. When the wires at the center front are poking forward and away from the chest, this means that your breasts are too large for the underwires in the bra. Also, many women make the mistake of going up a band size when they gain weight. Rather, they should first go up a cup size to see if that provides a better fit.
HerRoom Response: Teri, if I had to guess, I would say you are petite in stature. When underwires poke out at the sides and dig in, many times the underwire is simply too big for your physique. Women who are petite are better served by underwire demi cup bras - a demi cup has a shorter underwire.
Wacoal Response: We suggest our 85130 minimizer for women who are more petite or short-waisted. The underwires in this style have a tighter wire pattern and thus do not come up as high on the sides.
