Fitting Room Diaries: Entry #005, Size 40DDD/G, Top-Full
Customer: Shreya, Size 40DDD/G
Shreya came in and told us she usually shopped at Victoria’s Secret, but didn’t think she was wearing the right size. She was looking for something comfortable, and didn’t have strong preferences for style.
We took her measurements: 40’’ relaxed underband, 38’’ tight underband, 47.5’’ bust. Because there is a more than 7’’ difference between her band and bust, we recommended that she use the tighter measurement for a more supportive fit. We gave her 40G to try.
Shreya is very full on top. Her roots are wide and short, with nipples pointing outward. Her breasts are relatively firm and self-supporting. She’s taller than average and has a longer torso.
Bra #2: Petal in 40DDD
Petal works best for someone with more breast tissue above the nipple, so it’s a good match for Shreya! We noticed that Petal runs bigger in the cups, so we gave her a smaller cup size (40DDD) for this style. She fills out the cups well, and the center gore stays flat against her sternum. The wire can be a bit more open at the bottom.
Bra #3: Zoe in 40G
One thing we didn’t love about this fit was the spillage. Because Zoe offers medium front coverage, very top-full breasts tend to spill out over the cups. Besides this issue, Zoe was a good fit for her. Shreya said the wire was very comfortable, she could barely feel it.
Bra #4: Harper in 40G
Harper is a full coverage bra disguised as a strappy demi. The straps are more than decorative elements – they actually help hold you in, even if most of your breast tissue is at the top. The straps cut in a little bit here. Besides this issue, Harper is a good fit on Shreya. She said it felt secure and supportive, and liked the look of the style.
For dramatically top-full breasts, we recommend Petal. The higher center gore and stretch lace help hold you in and prevent spillage.
