    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 review is for the color “Lime”, purchased from Bravissimo. First off this color is more than Lime, it is NEON LIME!!!! Whoooo boy! It almost looks like it could glow in the dark. Not for the color shy that’s for sure. LOL. Now on to the review.
    This bra has a three part cup that provides good lift and a gives a rounded natural shape. The straps are spaced apart nicely and don’t fall off my shoulders. The straps are lined with a felt like material for the first six inches of the strap from the front of the cup. The fabric is nice with embroidered flowers ... and a hot pink bow on the center gore. The bottom two sections of the cup have lining to give more structure to the cup. The band is sturdy, but on the stretchy side, I find with this style I start off on the middle hooks but will eventually need to take the band in.

    The following is taken directly from the Bravissimo website.
    -Underwired balconette
    -2 hook fastening
    -Polyamide polyester elastane
    -Fully adjustable shoulder straps
    -Lime is exclusive to Bravissimo

    I also reviewed this bra in the fashion color “Yellow”. I have found that this style of bra is now one of my favorite bras and can’t wait to collect all the colors

    This review is for the white bra. It is supposed to be the same cut as Kali. However it fits me better than my Kali and I'm not sure why. My guess is that it has more immediate projection and accommodates my very center full boobs better.
    Shape in a T shirt is also slightly different than the Kali. It has slightly less lift but still keeps my very dense boobs up well.

    It measures almost identically to the Kali, except that the length of the band is several
    inches longer.
    The gore at 2.5 inches tacks pretty well, perfectly on my smaller boob side, but is very slightly on breast tissue on my larger side. I just don't have much room for a gore since my boobs touch in a bra.

    • I love Lucy (lol) and I expected to love Kali too - but for whatever reason the straps on the Kali dug into my like crazy....to the point of being painful. I thought they were the same cut too so this confused me.

    I've had this bra for while, not sure why I hadn't added/reviewed it! The bra is beautiful.. delicate and lacy, very feminine. I found this at the beginning of my "bra journey" on sale on Amazon for a great price. The quality is good, comfort is okay, but the fit is not ideal. My boobs are round and FOT.. this bra has more of a pointy shape which doesn't work well for me... this also causes the top of the cup to dig in a bit (slight quad-boob effect). The band is a little tight, but not unbearable. This isn't the type of bra that I'd wear regularly... for me it's more of a "date night" bra... a little something sexy that doesn't have to necessarily stay on for prolong periods of time lol.

      If you're FOT, you may do better in Cleo Marcie, Panache Jasmine, or Panache Floris, all of which are unlined, lacy, delicate, and FOT-friendly.

      imabratinfluence I do have the Cleo Marcie and it most definitely fits better.. will have to check out Panache Jasmine and Floris, thanks for the recommendations!!! =)

      I don't know about Floris but Jasmine may not work if you're sub 28. I've been eyeing it for a while but the band only goes down to a 30. I wish that Panache/Cleo would take a bigger risk and offer more for us 28ers.

    Shape is pointier and lift is minimal. The top of the cup cuts in and does not push breasts inward. Straps are short.

    Hasn't set fit

    I bought it way too small, but kept it since it was better than the bras I currently were using.

    I bought this bra through Amazon because currently the only bra that I have that fits is a Cleo Lily 28GG and this was recommended as being the most similar. I have a little bit of gaping at the top of the Lily, and I had the same on the Lucy...but when I brought my shoulders back to kind of smooth that out, it cut in just a little bit near the gore of my larger breast. Even starting in the second set of hooks, this band didn't feel very supportive to me. Sadly, I think this will be a return.

    This the the best fitting bra I own. I find it similar to the Confettit bra from Panache but not nearly as wide, or tall on the sides. I'm FOB and this perfectly encapsulates all my tissue without any gaps, or digging in.

    I don't think the wires are wide enough and are distorted from my tissue pulling them back. This is causing the cups to be pulled back and not have enough projection in the bottom of the cups which created a line. The band feels snug, but not too tight.

    I am a fairly even and projected breast shape. I have average-to-narrow roots with a slight omega shape. My best fitting bra is a Cleo Lily in 28GG, though I think a 30G would be more comfortable in terms of band length.

    Has a nice rounded shape even to slightly full-on-bottom breasts. Construction is solid, and the purple colour is gorgeously saturated and full. It's a really great bra all around. Design isn't necessarily anything special, but it's a great everyday sort of bra.
