My size before Jockey:
Preferred bra before Jockey:
Important note: I went into a Jockey store, got fitted, then bought this.
Now, some women said there were issues of the band fitting oddly or that this bra was sticking into their sides. That did happen to me. BUT, I stuck through with it and now I have scrapped all my other bras.
These bras are different from any other bra out there. You have to give them a chance. At first I thought "My god, this is uncomfortable and it sticks into my side... I have to return it!" But, my boyfriend said for me to stick through it and try it. I'm so glad I did.
What made this bra fit me perfectly is that I washed it. All my other bras got ruined when I washed them, machine wash or hand wash. I should also note that this bra withstood being crammed into a stuffed suitcase without loosing its shape.
I really don't understand why this bra has such low marks. This is truly an amazing bra. BUT, keep in mind you have to give it a chance. These are very different from any other bra (I have tried) out there. Don't just buy it and return it. But it, wear it for a few days, wash it, then wear it some more.
If you are really in doubt go to a Jockey store. There is a return policy. But, as I keep saying because the sizing is so different it will feel awkward. Just wear it for a few days and wash it. It is a miracle bra.
My husband noticed that I was wearing a new bra immediately. He thinks that they are great too.
The only problem I had with this product-- besides the strap being a bit tight ( on my other bra--which I gave the same measurments-- it is fine)-- is the wastful packaging. I revceived two bras that could have been mailed in a simple mailer. However, I got a big box with two shoebox like boxes within it -- and a lot of 'Packaging" material with that. I would prefer that Jockey be more eco- aware. Perhaps people could choose eco -options in their mailing of these products. I would choose that.
We would recommend style 6701 here is a brief description:
â?¢Our Classic Foam Cup with 3-D Flex Support bra provides full support and coverage
â?¢3-D flex support replaces rigid, uncomfortable underwire and provides underbust lift and support
â?¢Lightly padded bra cups for shaping and modesty
â?¢Stay-put cushioned straps help prevent your bra straps from slipping and pinching
â?¢U-shaped back and padded closure helps prevent straps from slipping and the band from riding up
â?¢Recommended for average and full busts
We recommend you look at styles number 6701 our Classic Foam Cup with 3-D Flex Support, 6702 Modern Foam Cup with 3-D Flex Support, style 6703 Double Lined with 3-D Flex Support and our last one 6704 Classic Foam Cup Wire-Free. Our selections with the padding is a very light padding if you are looking for more of a modesty look. However we have the Double lined with the 3-D flex support if you would like something without padding.

and this gave me other choices. the straps fall down as they do in most bras i get. i am willing to try on others to see what fits best. At this time I'm still looking for the best fit. i should tell you i have had a bilateral mastectomy an have yet to find the best bras for me but for now this is good and I will be trying others from jockey. they look good and the quality is really good even if it will not work for me.

01 would be AA or small A, 02 would be full A, 03- A-B, small B, 04- B (my normal size) 05- full B or small C (the size I ordered after getting fit kit-- it was too large though so I'm trying the 04 now - and because I had to size down from there that made me think of it more along the lines of normal cup sizes and roughly 2 sizes per cup -- therefore the 05 would be too big for me lining up more with the C)
