I love my first taste of Samanta! This style was not compatible with my shape but I now have an idea of what ones would work for me. From my understanding, this is a full-coverage style which is where most of my incompatibility comes from.

Pros:
Super cute, tts band that is comfortable and soft, awesome shape, depth is tts

Cons:
Samanta does not ship to the US so I cannot order directly (boo!), cups are too full coverage for me, cups rub and harass my armpits, and not enough immediate projection (very minor issue that I would have overlooked if I kept the bra), and the wires are on the wider side of average.

I would love to try more Samanta styles but I'm having issues finding stockists that ship to the US. Samanta does if you ask specially, but it's very costly. Their styles are so gorgeous and I'm so bummed that it's so difficult to order them.

This bra is not owned any more

    Beautiful bra, and it looks great on you! too bad you didn't care for the cut more. Your drawings on the blog post were helpful, and very well done! I admire your computer talent :)

  • So beautiful!! <3

  • I know A Sophisticated Pair sells Samanta and they can probably order styles/sizes you want.

    Zulily stocks them on occasion and I do believe sopisticatedpair.com was going to stock more and may have started already. I love their bras too...very luxurious but finding them here is no easy feat. Love this one too! Looks great on you!

    Broken link... sophisticatedpair.com :)

  • How is the fabric tension on the upper half of the cup? If it is at all loose I wonder if you could actually get away with sizing down to a smaller cup, because I bet this would help with wire length and the excessive coverage. In bras made with really high end materials, like Samanta, Avocado, Empreinte, sometimes at first you don't realize the cup is slightly too big because the mesh is such nice quality that it doesn't bag or wrinkle despite the cup not being really filled.

  • wendybien I was also thinking about sizing down in this style if I try it again. It wouldn't hurt to try but I think for padded styles (since those tend to run a smidge less deep) I'd be okay with a 65G.

    Thanks everyone for the recommendation to check out Sophisticated Pair! I'm definitely going to reach out to her and see if I can order a set (or two-I deserve nice things!). I'd love to try a cut that isn't 'full-coverage'.

    Btw, check out her blog post about styles of Samanta here, because it might tell you which style works better for you, especially since they make the same colorway in a lot of different styles. So you might get a Mintaka, just a different style Mintaka!

    Sweet Nothings did a review of a couple Samanta bras here:

    She did a couple more reviews of Samanta bras as well, you can search her website for them. Really helpful!

    I'm almost positive that Cakes On A Plate did a little series on Samantha as well.
