    This is the first bra I've tried on in my newly discovered size that I think fits me perfectly! There is very slight wrinkling, and very slight cutting at the top of my breast, and some marks are left from the tightness -but anything less tight tends to move around so I just deal with that. It provides a decent amount of support, but I mostly love it because it is so darn cute. This is also the last bra I expected to fit me given that it's completely unlined and full cup, and most reviewers seemed to have fit issues.

      That looks great on you! I'm glad it worked out.

    Okay, so this is an example of Weird Bra Physics. I bought this bra in a 28D and 28DD as an experiment. This bra has a lot of wrinkling in both cups, and yet the larger size of the exact same bra (28DD - Claudette » Dessous Mesh Underwire Bra (CD2000)) has only slight wrinkling on my smaller side. It feels like this is mostly because of the height of the cups. The larger size better encloses me vertically and this somehow makes the whole fit a lot better. I used to think that wrinkling indicated that the cups were too large, but in this bra, ... that does not seem to be the case!

    I am also wondering how much of this is due to the fact that the band is too tight on me. This is slightly less pronounced in the larger cup size. However, if I were to try this bra in a 30 band, I wonder if a C or D would fit me better.

    For now, I think I'll keep the 28DD size and return this one.

    • Take this with a grain of salt because I am by no means an expert, but it looks to me like your roots are too tall for this bra. In the 28DD, it definitely looks better as far as root goes, but still cuts in slightly.

    Well, I thought I would try this one one more time. A Bratabaser had this listed and the measurements looked good so I scooped it up. Unfortunately something weird is going on with the the wires. They should fit me, but they end up too wide and hurt the sides of my ribcage! I thought since my measurement change this would fit better because the band would not be pulled as tight, but it does not.

    I'm really sad because it's such a pretty bra. I love the color!

    I bought the Peacock (teal and gray) colorway and it is probably the most "my style" bra out of the ones I've tried recently, but the shape is just not right for me. It's quite shallow, I have trouble filling the bottom of it and it cuts into my tall roots. The shape is definitely not the rounded look you get from moulded bras and I don't love the shape it gives me, but I think if you are shallow with a FOB or even shape and/or not tall roots, you would get a much nicer, rounder look. All in all, a very beautiful and well made bra, but just not for me.

      I thought this colorway is from a previous season? The band tightness seems consistent with SS15 Claudette so I don't know. Does the band feel super tight on you? I wear mine with an extender and it fixes some of the cup issues.

      I'll bet the cup width on this one is a part of the problem. The 28DD I have isn't even 5", and it's too wide on me when I'm not bloated.

      Another thing that I noticed with mine is that a slightly too-large cup brought the top edge of the cup high enough that it doesn't cut in on my tall roots.

      Claudette, I want to figure you out, and I want you to work for us petites. We are running low on unlined options here!

    • I don't actually know what season it's from. I got it off Zulily.

      The band is quite tight, yeah. I don't have a band extender though, but that might be a good option. I don't quite want to get rid of it yet, but I'm also tired of owning bras that I don't love.

      And, sorry that's a typo on my part. The width is closer to 4.85. I'll update that now.

    • It looks like there's a report from another user who also reported that the teal one runs tighter than previous years.

      Definitely get an extender if it feels tight. This bra becomes unforgiving of tightness by the end of a day's wear. I don't remember if you were the person who has a 25" ribcage, if so I'll bet this would break in in no time for you. Me, I'm getting a 30 band on my next Claudette, hopefully they don't change up their fit again.

      I have found most of my Claudettes to run more narrow in the cup than this, I wonder if you got an unusual one.

    • I'm more like a 26" but this is still pretty tight. Might be a good idea to have a bra extender in general.

      It could also be that I'm bad at measuring. I'll try again tomorrow along with my 28DD and we'll see what I get.

      Haha, I do want them to change the fit! Less shallow & FOB would be great.

    Compared to the Cameo version of the Dessous, the cups run really big. Either that, or my boobs changed a whooole lot, in very weird ways. Anyway, the band is loose, as per the rumours. The material isn't that soft, but it's not unpleasant, either. The colors are really nice!

    (Camo with limeade trim colorway) - Despite everyone saying that the Dessous runs loose, I found this bra fairly tight (this being the beginning of my bra journey, I was very concerned at the time about my ability to wear 28 bands due to this generalization). I don't know if it is this specific colorway or all bras from that season (SS13, I think? maybe AW13) but the band was pretty tight. The gore was quite comfy, but the wires on the sides dug into my ribs, which is something my other bras don't do. The wire width, however, was fine, I think they are on the narrow side of average. The fabric seemed like very hard and scratchy mesh but it actually wasn't uncomfortable to wear. The construction of the bra seemed very solid.

    As for the fit, there was a some room near the apex and in the sheer part of the cup, which was not super fun. Unfortunately, I returned the bra before I remembered to measure it :(

    Another gorgeous bra from Claudette. The colour (Peacock/concrete) is so rich and beautiful and is very flattering. The shape of the cups works great for me, and although it is an unlined bra it is invisible under clothes (seams, nipples don't show through). The band is noticeably firmer than my older dessous bra (from s/s 2013), so at the end of the day there is discomfort from the tightness of the band. It is still new so I am hoping it stretches out a bit more as I wear and wash it, so it fits as well as my other one.
