Usually love goddess bras, but this was mostly useless. I'm returning it because it had very little support. You do need to go up at least a band size, I'm usually a 44 and the 48 was a bit big, just be sure to compensate by going down one cup size for each band size you go up.
689 is one of the most supportive bras we make. It’s built for the ultimate in support and shaping, featuring light boning in both the cups and the body of the bustier.
However, even the best bra in the world can’t do its job if the size is incorrect. As you’ve discovered, most of the support should be provided by the body of the bra, so it’s vital that the band is snug enough around the torso.
It could also be you need a larger cup size to give you the fit and support you’re looking for.
You might try Elomi 1231, a bustier in our Elomi brand. It offers seam-free cups, for a lovely smooth look under clothing, and it gives you two more cup sizes in a 44 band than 689. Remember, Elomi is UK-sized (please refer to size comparison chart). I would recommend a 44G in this style, as there’s no need to go up in the band.
