  1. I am very happy to volunteer in this product testing! I do fit some 34D bras but am unsure of my exact size.

    • Hi Naomi,

      Thank you so much for your interest. I have actually recruited all the volunteers I need for this current batch of testing now.
      I will be looking to test again around February time so if I could keep you in mind for that, i’d be very grateful!
      I would also be more than happy to bra fit you around that time too so we can check your size.
      If you could drop me an email, then I can take your contact details.

      Best Wishes,
