Over-the-Shoulder-Boulder-holder

In short. Am going to a wedding and need an underwired bra to lift and seperate those breasts from the jelly mass that is my abdomen. Got measured by a trained bra lady who told me that my bras are far far too big and got me the correct ones.

This morning I put the new bra on (also bought new nursing bras) only to find that she was wrong, oh so bloody wrong, and I am now in possession of three bras that make me look like I have four squished together breasts....

Oh, so disappointing. Take 'em back!

That's really curious. Did you not get the opportunity to try them on? I spent hours once in the M & S changing rooms being measured and then exposing my breasts to the fitter (bra, not gas) as I tried on a variety of bras, some of which were just not the right shape for my boobs, even though they were all the same size.

There's nothing worse than disappointing bras . . .

Take them back! There is nothing worse than ill fitting bras.
I have these fat pads which hang out under my arms, so I also look as if have have 4 mammaries! But I am old now, & hide them always, so in my case, it doesn't matter. I have an added oddity, being a b cup one side, & a d cup on the other. Never noticed when I was young, but now!
Now I hope the TMI has cheered you!

Definitely take them back. The fitter needs to know if they're fitting wrong.

Not to mention you still need a proper fitting OTSBH.

Oh dear! The dreaded double boobs!

I wore an older push up bra today to work and it's the last time it will ever see boobage. It was my favourite last summer but it's lost something and my back ACHES today. (and no, not any kind of weird size, either!)

Like daysgoby said: take them back - it's too big an investment to put up with the wrong fitting.

(And more about the wedding outfit, please?)

Oh, boo-hoo from a flat chested one!

Oh I HEAR you!!

God I hate my bras, even the ones that supposedly fit.

I must be a weird shape or something, because I cannot find an underwire bra for me that doesn't give me the third nipple in the middle. In fact, that sticks out further than my ample other two!!

Take them back, see the same lady, complain.

I have troubel with bras too - I think I am an 'inbetweeny' size, and ANYTHING that has the SLIGHTEST amount of padding in it ( ie: t-shirt bras ) push me out and over and give me udders x4

But padded bras are cool and in apparently, because even if you have larger size bazoongas, apparently you STILL want padded bras ?!?!?

And everytime I get 'fitted' ( never again ! ), they try to get me into those fat-shoulder-banded, pointed Madonna 80's bra( in beige ), the ones that really really old ladies and your nanna probably wear ....
