    Didn't fit

    At my old measurements(about 36" OB) I hated the fit of these bras but I've always loved the look.
    I'm closer to a 28DD/28D-30C/30D now and lost a ton of upper tissue, so I think this would work wonderfully now. It's a bit closed on top, so not good for FoT shapes. I'm more even now, but "functionally FoB" due to my shape(tuberous/conical-so thin with lots of center projection).

    This size is Unfortunately too large for me now. Wish I'd kept my tan and navy 28E as I recall that being smaller than this one. But yay, I think I can finally wear the Dessous! I just need a 30C ... or 30D. By the amount of wrinkling in this, I'm going to guess the former.

    The band on this one is also larger, at about 32" stretched. It kind of hovers on my 28" ribcage. In my experience with this style, the bands have either been pretty tight or super loose(I have another one,same color, 30 band that stretches to 34").
    Hopefully Claudette has more true to size bras now that some time has passed.


    Would recommend to more FoB,projected,narrow types. The fabric is a little scratchy in my opinion, but not enough to bother me. Would be more annoying to me in a band that was closer to my UB,I think.

      Love Claudette has been closed since the end of 2016! :-(
      I am incredibly sad about this as I love their bras. I now have a fishnet plunge, 28D, Dessous in 30D & 28DD, and two more of the other styles on the way. I'm grabbing them up as quickly as I can. There are some left on Amazon and breakout bras. Her room may have some as well. I know Prettyncharmeuse has a 28E and it's red so it may have a looser band than the black ones. I'll post pictures of my 30D soon, I have everything else about it posted.

      LeProfessor omg, I had no idea! That's so sad :( I have some in my cart on Amazon- I'll have to get them now.
      Ohh, I'll take a look, thanks for letting me know!
      That's such a bummer that they closed. :,(

      Btw, the wrinkles I see in this picture is not really bad for dessous. I see you don't have a lot of inner fullness like I do, so the 30D cuts into my tissue. I get these vertical lines/wrinkles in my 30D but i have taller roots and less outer fullness compared to my inner & center fullness. The cups are filled though! If you have any in your cart from break out bras through Amazon, I suggest grabbing those. Mine was literally here like 4 days after I ordered it!

      Hi Queequeg0925 I remember you! I never could get Claudette to work for me at any size... fingers crossed that this is better for you in a lower cup volume!

      Thanks for the review, Queequeg0925 . I always read with interest how size changes affect fit changes in beloved makes/models/colorways.

    • LeProfessor that's good to know :) I have a few in my cart that I'll order ASAP then ^_^ there's a slightly different style that I've had in my cart forever. Think I'll finally order that too haha

      @Love4Pollinators Thank you :)

      @wendybien I remember you too! :D Thank you! I've always loved the style of these. Keeping my fingers crossed :)

      @learningaboutbras you're welcome ^_^ Glad it can be of some help :)

    Runs VERY small in the cup and actually (surprisingly) tight in the band. Wires are quite narrow and straps are lovely and thin for summer tops. The edging will cut in to any upper fullness (I probably could have gotten away with it in a bigger size)

    Basically fits. I think the cups are wide enough but the wires are just a bit too narrow for my frame, so by the end of the day they're digging a bit at the sides. I get a tiny bit of bulging in the stretchy top panel, not really enough to call it quadboob but I'm hoping the elastic there will relax a bit with time.

    EDIT: after a couple months of wear and breaking in, this has turned into the winner of my collection. The wires have relaxed enough that they don't seem to dig anymore, the cup fits smoothly, and I find myself wanting to reach for it every day but resisting because I want it to last a long time. Will probably acquire one or two more if the opportunity presents itself.

    A well fitting bra, aside from the big band (expected), and a tiny bit of fabric wrinkling on the sides (barely noticeable, especially with my Leopard patterned bra). Surprisingly enough, there's slightly more wrinkling on my bigger breast; I believe it's a shape issue.

    Please read my full review for more info!

    Cups are too small and I have to wear band on smallest hook. Didn't wash well...but the design is so nice I'd like to try a 28F.

    WRINKLING EVERYWHERE. Totally the wrong shape in so many ways. Band is easy to hook on the tightest hook. Mesh would irritate someone with sensitive skin. The wires are narrow for me and I do not fill out the cup. The top edge is nicely elastic and doesn't cut in and the gore tacks just fine. I feel like gores always tack on me so that's probably not useful information.

    Alas. I love the colors the Dessous line comes in but destiny is just not with me.

    When I first went to try on this bra it seemed like the underwire was going to be just way too small. After some adjusting as all bras require, it seemed like a good fit. The only issue I have is due to the fact that I am breastfeeding currently. Sometimes the cups seem to small. Otherwise I love it.
