A lovely looking bra with a nice tight band. Sadly I can't fill the cups of this bra. My settled bottom heavy boobs are not big enough fog a 28G but 28FF is too small. Compared to Lucy (witch is very good fit on me in 28G/30FF) it seems the cups are about half or a quarter a cup larger.
I ordered this bra in 28G despite being a 26GG/H because I had read reviews on how the band can be tight. When I tried it on, the band fitted really well for a 28, so yes the bands do run a little tight in this bra. I was a bit skeptical of this bra at first since it was unpadded, and I don't usually like wearing those sorts of bras, however this bra was very firm, so it didn't really feel like an unpadded bra to me I also really love this pattern, it's the main reason I bought this bra, and the little swallow charm in the ventre just adds to it! The cups could fit me better, my breasts are not the right shape for it but considering it is not my proper size I am not complaining that much
As pretty and lovely as this bra is, it really doesn't work with my breast shape. More so than any bra I've tried before! I've heard many people say that the fit is tricky on this one.
The cups are really shallow at the base, which I didn't like as I have a lot of lower fullness. From the base this meant my breast tissue was pushed upwards, but the top of the cup did not lie flat. I don't think it would have fit if I'd gone down a cup size and it might have worked a bit better after washing. However, there were other fit issues that made it not worth keeping. My breasts are very close together and the centre gore on this dug in a lot. The wires are also far too wide for my shape. The band is probably slightly ...tighter than the average 28, but not tight enough for me (25" underbust).
On a more positive note, the straps are fully adjustable and I felt the support was good, despite the bra shape not being good for me. It's also a really lovely design. I don't normally go for unpadded bras but I couldn't resist the print on this! Read more 59 more words
It's quite comfortable, but I feel the wires might still be a little too wide for me. The gore doesn't quite sit flat, but then my boobs are very very close together as well, which could influence this. This bra gives me a bit of a pointed shape and the cup gaps when I lean forward. The top of the bra sits really funny and kind of flattens the top of my boobs, not sure why this is? It's quite tight which is good, doesn't feel too loose in the band
Too big in the cup for me, so I resold on Ebay. Really cute bra, I wish it had fit but I also tried a 30F and that one cut in on the top...I would say it's a better bra for those who are full on the bottom. It didn't shape as well as my Lucy or Marcie bras either. Still the bird print is very attractive, the little charm on the center gore is a nice touch. Fabric felt very stiff but I didn't wash it so I don't know if it would have softened up. Seemed to be supportive though. Band was a typical 28 and felt comfortable on my 28" ribcage.
