Should the center be touching the center of my chest?
I ordered a 36G and I notice that the center of the bra doesnt sit against my chest like other bras. I did however notice in the description pictures that the bra sits on the chest of the smaller framed women but the full figure female's bra doesn't sit flat in the center of her chest.
Is this a bra that when you are full figure you shouldn't expect it to rest on the center of the chest? I'm not full figured but my breasts are large hence the size G cup!
Otherwise the bra seems to fit very well and is pretty comfortable compared to others once you break it in.
Thanks in advance!
The center gore of a well fitting bra will always sit against your body, it's one of the signs that it fits... or doesn't. If you aren't full figured, you probably aren't a 36 band size. (You shouldn't add to your underbust measurement to get your band size.) The center gore might be protruding because the cups are too small, the band is too big, or both.
You might want to check out brands like Freya, Panache, and Curvy Kate which have better sizing options. They are uk sizes, so check out the size charts.
I tried to make this bra fit before I realized that everything I knew about sizing was wrong. I wear a UK 34G ( generally), which is a US 34I. My chest is not remotely huge, as conventional wisdom ( in the US at least) would have you believe. :)
