I hear ya… i kept buying the wrong bra’s for years.  I just tried something new .. i saw them on Rachael Ray (they DO SKYPE FITTINGS) they are called double diva’s and are on Lifetime.  It all makes sense now …. check them out .. and they are NOT models .. they are totally normal girls. ๐Ÿ˜€

I’m at the other end of the spectrum. Small ribcage, big boobs. Shopping is hard for 32E too.

Try a smaller band larger cup size.  I think you may actually be surprised. I was wearing a 36c…turns out 32dd fits so much better.

You’re not actually the size you think you are. Go to a Nordstrom or specialty bra store (NOT Victoria’s Secret!!) and get measured for real in a place where you can try a wide variety of sizes. Or, get measured, and go to a site like Bare Necessities and order a ton of different styles in that size to try (you can return with free shipping!).

@AquaGrey8962:  That BLOWS.  The weightloss will definitely help.  I’m in the process and have definitely lost inches around.  I bet you’ll be surprised at how little you may lose in the cup…especially if you didn’t gain there.

@crayfish:  I agree with NOT Victoria’s Secret!!!  Not to mention their bras are low quality.

Do you have a Soma?  I swear by that place!!

Go for a proper fitting.  I suspect you are probably not the same size you think you are.

Cups get bigger with band size.  A 32 b and a 42 b will not have the same cup sizes.  They are proportional.

Go to a proper lingerie store and get fit.  Seriously, it can change your life.

I went in wearing a 34C, and left wearing a 38F.  It has made my shape so much better, and they sit nicely and look great under tops. 

I can’t say it enough, get fit.

I don’t have any good tips, but I have the same problem. I thought I was a 40-42b- I have a bunch of 38b bras, but the band is too tight. I just ordered some absolutely gorgeous 42b bras online from Lane Bryant, but the cup size is enormous. It is very very frustrating ๐Ÿ™

Tell me about it. I was wearing a 34B- turns out that the reason my strap was always riding up was because I’m actually a 28E.

@kaylee26:  Girl, I feel you, I’m the same size.

I agree with many ladies above, going to a deparment store and getting properly sized is the best thing that ever happened to my boobs. You never know what you should be wearing and they can find the right bra for you. It’s amazing, my back has never felt better.
