QT Response: We're not quite sure why you couldn't get this over your head. Your only option in this style would be to try a larger band size, a 40 or 42, so you could get it over your head or thighs. There's no way to know if the bra part will fit. We suggest trying a 40C next time. This would give you more body size to get over your hips and the cup would be the same as the 38D cup.
