It’s on the loosest hook and the underwires are about 2 inches away from my tissue, causing the strange “fold” at the bottom. It’s a little hard to see in these pictures (taken just after putting the bra on), but after a few hours of wear, the bra would end up almost at my stomach and I could feel my breast tissue folding over onto my ribcage (eww and totally unsupportive).
Band on tightest hook and pulling up on the underwires:
Pull from the wire itself and then again from the top of the bra at the straps (photo is from top of bra).
The cups look HUGE now:
But after scooping, I fill out the cup more than I did when wearing it on the loosest hook:
And I always wondered why this bra looked so different on the models!
The bra does migrate a tiny bit over the course of a few hours, but it pretty much stays right under my tissue, which is great. I really thought my breasts were just “weird shaped” and would never look good in a bra… and that I’d just have to deal with my breasts folding over onto my ribcage, but this really seems to do the trick. So there you have it: the amazing effects of pulling up on the underwires (and a snug band)!
