I first purchased this bra in 2008. I was in a 42G then. I can tell you I loved the bra, wore it while working my cleaning business. But, after a couple wearings, the band rolled up. I have a consistent problem with the band rolling and the straps having to be let out all the way from the time I first begin to wear it. So, when I purchase a new bra, I have each time purchased the next band size up, and down a cup size. But, after I wear it a while, I seem to get bigger, and wind up purchasing the G cup again. I have gained more weight. Right now the 46G the bra feels too tight, and the cups are a bit small, for I have a 2 inch cleavage above the cup, and girls are completely touching each other, (which they normally do not). So, I like this bra, but the band rolls and the straps are short for me. However, when I have purchased a Glamorise front hook 1265 in a 48F and in a 48DD respectively, they were both too large in the cup, and I had the straps taken up to about an inch below the top. I had to keep the 48DD, having already paid once for an exchange. So, I have worn it around the house for three hours. The band rolls up. On every bra I ever wear with a band, the band rolls up. I had not ordered this style again because I am no longer working. But, I'd like a well supporting bra for everyday wear. Perhaps I SHOULD order this style again instead to trying to go with the front hook bra. If I do, I'll try a 48G. At some point, maybe the straps will be long enough. FYI my under bust measurement is 42. My measurement above my bust is 46. My bust measurement, in this bra which is pushing me in, is 50. My bust measurement in the front hook 48DD is 51.75, but I am sliding down in it so the nipple is not at mid cup, and there is fabric I can pinch in the top of the cup, about 3/8 an inch fold. And the 48 has my girls pointing outward in the front hook 1265. I did call and speak with a consultant before I exchanged the 48F. I am a bit frustrated now, not knowing what I should order.
