I'm surprised no company is marketing a petite bra - the issue I often have is that the space between breasts is too wide, thus pulling breasts apart and reducing cleavage. I also find that the straps sometimes can't be decreased enough, resulting in that annoying strap drift.

It's been pretty tough to find regular bras that fit as my size changes. Originally I was glad to downsize my cup to a 30C, because I was suddenly able to fit into styles I wasn't able to fit in before. After my weight loss success I rebounded years later and am now heavier than I've ever been in my entire life. So I'm back in the "big girl bras" I had before and REFUSE to buy a new everyday bra if the tag says 34DD. But my sports bras no longer supported me at the gym. I was wearing a regular underwire with a sports bra over the top. Getting a sports bra to support me properly was the best decision I could have made. Although I haven't shaved off the new pounds yet, frequent zumba classes and weight lifting has allowed me to tone myself so i can wear my old sports bras without the added help of a t-shirt bra underneath, even if I am overflowing abit. At least I can work out without issue.

Try going to a nice bra/lingerie place and have them measure you there - then you can take that knowledge somewhere less expensive to actually go shopping!

(Personally I wear a lot of very tiny bras from the adolescent section off Target, haha, but I've also had some good luck at gap and aerie - I wear a 34AA or A... though I did once get measured at bloomingdales and get told I was a 28B (no freakin way, lol) which is why I suggest trying to go to a specialty store - I had a good experience getting measured at journelle, though I don't think those exist outside of NYC)

Mine was all the way around, I went down but not cup size but band size, from 34 to 32.

I believe and is my understanding that from the size that you are right now you should add another cup or double.

Have you tried odd places like Marshalls or TJ Maxx you never know. I've tried VS and Fredericks but they are quite expensive, also Ebay is another place to find underwear.

Hi all! I'm new to this forum and wondering if any of you experience issues with finding a bra that fits. I haven't had a lot of disposable income to go bra shopping, so I've been wearing ones that don't really fit for a while now. It doesn't help that I've lost inches from my bust and waist, so I think they're not filling the cup any more. There seem to be different methods of calculating the right size. My below the bust measurement is 28. Some say that's the band size you should use, and others say add 4 to it. Where I'm really surprised is the difference between that and my fullest bust measurement of 35 -- that equates to a 28F or 32F. I've been wearing 36C. I never thought I should go up in cup size. Anyone else have this issue?
