Used to fit

This review is for the color "Yellow".
This is my first soft cup bra, and at first I was a little afraid to try it because I have breast implants and most sewn cup bras just don’t fit me right. They usually are too pointy and cut into the top of my breast causing the dreaded double-bubble. After reading all the reviews, here on Bratabase, I ordered one. I have to say this bra is wonderful. So now on to my review.
The under-wires are the perfect shape for my breast and come up just high enough on the sides and don’t poke me in the arm pits at all. The center gore is the right height and has just the right amount of space between the cups. The cup provides the right amount of lift and gives a rounder shape, but still looks natural under clothing. Since I’m really not used to the thin fabric and have a fear of headlights glaring at people when it’s chilly out, I slip in my Wacoal No Peeks (size M=C/D, in case anyone is interested in what size to get if you are a 28GG) and that takes care of the problem. The band fits me best on the middle hook, but that seems to be the norm for me and my 26 inch ribcage. I also do not get any of the side bulge flap-a-doodle thing around the armpit. The straps are the perfect width apart and don’t slide off my narrower shoulders. Overall I think I like this bra well enough that I want to purchase more in other colors. The color I got is yellow and I just love the fun cheery look of it. I also want to add that since this is my first non-molded cup bra I find it absolutely awesome that I can fold this thing up flat and put it away. All my other bras have to be stacked in such a way that the cups don’t get dents in them. Overall I am pleased with my purchase. ^_^

*Update 7/12/12 - This band is stretchy and I have been wearing it on the tightest hooks. I will be taking this bra band in to fit as a 26 band size. It’s my most comfortable bra to date.

This bra is not owned any more
