I am buying a longline bra for under my wedding gown. I originally bought the 42 G on the advice of the online salesperson and had it rushed since I needed it for dress shopping. I had the bra sent to the midwest as I was on vacation there and needed it for trying on dresses with my mother in law. When it arrived, late, it was way too big in the band and in the cup, so I sent it back for the 40G, and asked that the new one be sent to California where I live. However, it was sent again to the mid-west, having needed to be re-mailed by my mother in law. Now, the new one is still so big in the cup that my breasts do not completely fill it out, and it crumples when you poke the tips of the cups. The band feels pretty good, but could be a bit snugger and would still feel fine. I need to send this one back and try another bra, which is very frustrating as I cannot get my gown fitted since I do not have a proper bra, and have had to keep canceling appointments both in the midwest and now California. Has any one else found that the molded cups are strangely shaped and too large for their boobs?
Elomi Reponse: First of all, congratulations on your upcoming wedding! Please consider visiting HerRoom's Bra Fitting Page to help determine your correct size. It sounds like you should possibly go down in the band and cup.
The following 3 steps may also help you when putting your bustier on:
1. Stoop-Lean forward from the waist, allowing the breasts to drop into the cups
2. Scoop-Then, with the opposite hand gently bring the breast tissue forward from the back towards your cleavage
3. Swoop- it in front of, and on top of the under wire into the cup…Take your two forefingers and separate the breast tissue, smoothing it back into the cups.
