    I have loved everything I have received from @Claudette so far. I have the Fishnet Plunge in 28:4; http://bra.pe/XXwQ/ and I have the 30:4 in this same bra; http://bra.pe/XXvC/ . I was SO HAPPY with how the 30D fit me I was ecstatic to try my 28:5 Dessous. These are unfortunately two completely differently fitting bras. The comfort level on this bra is great. The band was lovely and snug. The under wires were a fine width, and I of course had my typical problem with Claudette under wire/gores. They sort of dig in and hurt to begin with, this ... either goes away or I push the wire down the channel towards the outside of the cup since there is always a bit of room in the wire channels. The shape this bra gave me was a very natural one, not at all like the 30D which was lifted, gathered, and mostly rounded. There were quite a lot of horizontal lines on this bra and a couple vertical ones on the arm pit side of the cup. I couldn't figure out what was going on with this bra till I took it off and went to measure it. This 28DD CAN NOT fit a 28, or even a 26, rib cage without the cups & wires stretching and warping. Laying flat the band measures 20.5"; certainly not unheard of for a 28 band. But then I went to stretch the band and only got to 23" before the wires & cups started warping. I think this bra would be best for a tight 24:8 (24H) with narrow roots. Although the cups/wires may be a bit warped as I wore this bra once for a ten hour shift at work. The bra band can easily stretch to at least 26" (that's where I stopped stretching it), but, again, the wires/cups begin warping after 23".
    I have no idea what I'm going to do with this bra.....I'd like to try a 28D/E respectively. To see if this is a problem among all @Claudette size 28 band @Dessous bras. I plan on doing a comparison page.

      I know yogurt ! The best color description I can come up with is highlighter pink. SO very bright and in your face. I just wish the wires/cups didn't start warping after a 3" stretch of the band. :-(
      I'm hoping this one is just a one off and I can get another where the wires don't warp when the band stretches to at least 26".

    Very pretty bra, but the cups seem to run a bit small. In Freya and Curvy Kate, I'm a 28D, but I think a 28E would be a better fit for me in this bra - the 28DD gives me a bit of spillage over the top. It's not enough to make the bra uncomfortable or anything - actually it's quite supportive and comfy - just a very minor cosmetic thing. The band is just perfect for me (my ribcage is closer to a 26 than 28), though, and the colour matches my skin tone quite nicely.

    This, this bra came out a lot more highlighter pink than I expected. The color isn't for me, but that's the least of my problems.

    For some reason, Claudette 28 bands always dig awfully into my left ribcage. Why? They're not even that tight....

    Aside from that, there are numerous fit issues. The cup is altogether too deep for me and too closed on top, resulting in an elf shoe look. The wires are quite wide, which is something I don't need but I don't mind either. As is usual for Claudette Dessous, the mesh is a bit scratchy at first but pretty comfortable in the grand scheme of things and the fully-adjustable and easily-slideable straps are a treat. This bra has a weird hard wrinkle in the cup seam near the nipple, which means an unfortunate poking through of the seam into any shirt that I might wear. The band is on the lose side of TTS.

    Just too big and the wrong shape. Band is nice and snug and the bra is beautiful and well-made.

    • This one runs way different in the sizing than my bright yellow one, otherwise I would buy it off you. :(

    • Hmm different in which ways? Mods have asked me to verify a bunch of my recent bra measurements so I'm beginning to think I'm doing things wrong and/or am very bad at reading tape measures. Definitely willing to double check if there's a measurement you're concerned about.

    • With a lot of bras different colors can have different sizing so I don't think it's necessarily your measurements that are off. However, if you could check the cup depth again that would be great!

    Update:

    I bought an extender for this bra and have worn it a couple more times. I think I need a 30C in this model. The cups are just a little bit wider than I like them to be and I get a little bit of wrinkling when it's not that time of the month.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~

    This review is for the SS 2015 model of this bra, I think I read somewhere that there have been year-to-year changes.

    Tight band alert! I couldn't stretch this to the full 28". If you need a tight band this bra is for you. Today my ribcage is measuring an even 27" and this feels sooooooo ... tight. I have only worn it for about 10 minutes and it isn't painful, just way more snug than I'm used to. Based on my experience with my old 32A - Claudette » Dessous Mesh Underwire Bra (CD2000), I think the band will relax over time, otherwise I would probably exchange it for a sister-sized 30D.

    I would also say that the cups run small. I bought a 28D and a 28DD to try in this bra only because I was seeing really small cup measurements posted on Bratabase. Right now I fit mostly into 30C and 28D bras and I would not have otherwise ordered a 28DD.

    I absolutely love the bright yellow and pink. Photos do not do this bra justice. It is traffic-stopping bright neon.

    My pictures turned out super weird. I guess my phone camera hates the light in here and for some reason I look blue. Also, the slight cup wrinkling on my smaller side wasn't there after I took the bra off and then put it on again. Huh.

    I'm sure I'll have more to say about this as I break it in. You can see how tight it looks, I might pick up an extender.
