I really like the roundness of this bra. However, I followed the sizing advice and ordered a tighter band size and larger cup size. I normally wear a 30E in the Freya active bra (which I love), so I ordered a 28F. The band was pretty snug, which is fine because they always stretch out one hook within a week or so. The cup, however, was too loose toward the front. What I mean is that the wire was the perfect size, but the cup sticks out too far to the front, so that there is a space between me and the bra. I'm thinking that a 28E in this particular bra may do it for me, and I will make an attempt to exchange it. However, I'm a little afraid the wire will be too tight because it is the perfect size right now. I would just go with my normal 30E, but I feel I will have to wear it on the tightest hook, which either shortens the life of my bra or I have to take it in at the hooks. I refuse to pay $60 for a bra and still have to do that.
It’s so important to “swoop-and-scoop” the breast tissue forward in front of the under-wire in every bra you put on. This will ensure that all of your breast tissue is in the cup and none is sitting behind the wire, where it does you no good at all. Usually this solves the problem of that ‘space’ between you and the bra.
Judging by what you’ve said, I wouldn’t recommend going down in the cup (to a 28E) as the wire spread will probably be too narrow to encompass all of your breast tissue –I think it would be uncomfortable.
