I would tell them, first off, to BUY IT IN THE RIGHT BAND.
Just because it is there in the store, and just because it is pretty, doesn't give you any excuse to buy a band that is too loose on the widest set of hooks. Just because it fits at the middle or tightest settings is NOT a reason for purchasing it.
That is obviously all my fault, it is just incredibly difficult to find a 28 band where I am. Luckily, I have found a boutique that has 28s a plenty and will not be making purchases like this again where I am compromising with my breasts and the available selection.
On to the review:
-This is a BEAUTIFUL bra. I mean, gorgeous. Lovely. In pretty much every way you hope your bra will be lovely.
-The band actually runs quite snug for a 30 (which ... is a pro for me and anyone else in a 28 that has trouble finding them)
-Is close enough to a "peach" to be worn discreetly under clothes
-The lace, with a proper fit, is invisible
-It seems pretty sturdy
-The band is quite snug (pro and con, because if this is your true size you may have some mild discomfort at first as it stretches out)
-The top sheer lace could be of a sturdier construction, it's just so malleable from a bra that looks like it would be a supportive construction.
-The wires are TOO SHORT to effectively hold all of my breast tissue in the cups. They escape into the recesses of my armpits which simply will not do. I have to readjust the bra on occasion which isn't what I want to do. If this is an issue with the bra in the correct size and the wires just run short, this could be a huge potential issue. I have read CK's wires tend to run short.
I would recommend this to a friend if they were significantly smaller busted than I am and for whom rogue breast tissue isn't a problem. In something like a 28d I doubt the short wires would be as much of a problem as it is in an f and higher.
