I'm usually a 32J in (Bravissimo) bras (Candy Bliss balconette styles) and 32HH in bikinis, but because I have got bigger in my body (size 14-16) I have bought this in a 34H. The 34 gives more coverage of my bottom than the 32 which was far too skimpy, and although the 34 is a little looser on the back it hasn't affected the support (as yet!) My boobs sit low and I am 5'4" with a short waist so the wires are positioned pretty much OK for me, and the body length is OK (if your boobs sit low but you're an inch or two taller - and your tummy a tad flatter than mine! - it might still be OK in the body for you) The only problem I have is that my boobs are bottom-heavy and so even in a (much) smaller H cup there is a gap at the top, especially on my smaller side (I tried a GG cup but it was to narrow in the wires) Although the suit looks 'OK' with the normal straps it does look 'pretty fab' with the racer clip on. I thought this would be hard to do up myself but found it's easier to reach over your shoulders as it sat fairly near to my neck (I'm not that flexible any more but found that fairly easy to do!) Even though it's a plunging style I didn't fall out of it either; in a Thalasso Therapy pool it was fine. One last thing - the colour is nicer in the flesh; I thought it was black and beige, but it's black with a pretty pale peachy-pink.
