This is the best fit I have found so far. The gore lies flat, the band doesn't ride up, and it's very comfortable. The cups are a little too wide, and there is empty space near the outer edge of the underwire. However, in the next cup size down (a 30DD), the underwire sits on top of breast tissue near the outer edge. There seems to be a large difference in cup size between the 30DD and 30DDD, although all the cups seem to run small for their size. The bra is lovely though, with very light moulding under mesh.
Super flattering! This is probably my best-fitting bra to date. The band is a comfortable length. I have owned it for about two weeks and am currently wearing on the outermost hooks. I am 15 months post-partum and still nursing my son several times daily. The cups fit best when I am at my fullest. When I am not full of milk, there is some wrinkling in the lacy mesh part at top. The wires are wide enough to not dig into the edge of my breast, but outer edges of the cups dig into my armpit. The gore is a great width for my natural breast separation. The cups are lightly lined, but not padded. Plungy enough to wear with v-neck shirts, and easy enough to slip aside the cup for occasional brief nursing.
All I can say is Wow! This is a wonderfully fitting bra. I have to say it's much prettier in person, as I wasn't very impressed by any of the images online. But it could be that the incredible fit is influencing me in some way. This bra would be good for shallow breasts with a wide and/or tall root. Largely invisible under shirts, and the narrow straps are perfect for tank tops. I'm really in love! This bra has a molded cup that's overlain by a stretchy mesh. The mesh is edged in a soft stretch lace. The wings are made of a very pretty lace, and I was surprised by the firmness of the band despite its stretchy material. The one drawback is that the lace edging along this cups is a little bulky, and is visible under some t-shirts.
This is one of the first bras I purchased (or haven't returned) since finding out my correct bra size. I have narrow shoulders and separated breasts. I find this bra does a good job of providing some cleavage while still looking relatively smooth under a stretchy tee shirt. It stays on my shoulders without slipping and without digging into my underarms, as I find to be the biggest problem I have with so many bras. most "seem" to have wide set straps. I think the difference is that the the very top of the cup on this one turns inward slightly instead of outward towards the my armpit. ...The straps are fully adjustable which is nice.
About the only negatives I can find with this bra are that the lace, although pretty, comes up fairly high on the straps making this the wrong bra for many wider style neck openings. For instance it looks great under a tee but I cannot wear it with a tank top. Lastly the band only stretches to 30", at the very most, and is quite tight on my 29" frame. (It is still new so it may relax some - For now I am using it with an extender and it is working quite well). Read more 103 more words
I thought I liked how this bra fit me in the past, but it's not working now. This one is black, so I thought it might run small, but the measurements I took of it are pretty comparable to the measurements of my past pink and beige ones in the same size. Wish I had the cup height measure for all of them. Could there be something the measurements aren't accounting for? I feel like the other colors were more full coverage on me. Or maybe cups run more or less shallow by color?
Also possible that I measure a bit larger and am in denial of weight gain putting off measuring.
This bra in black feels classic and sexy, but it's just too small and shallow for me with quad and not staying in my IMF.
I am in love with this bra! When i saw it on the hanger, i thought it was nothing special. but when the fitter at Nordstrom put it on me, I fell in love. It fits really well and feels very comfortable and light on my body. Really pretty, love the sheer details and the lace! Smooth under clothing.
This bra is a decent everyday t-shirt bra. It does nothing for creating cleavage or lifting wide set and low lying breasts like mine, however, the bra is still rather pretty and provides decent basic support.
It's the only comfortable bra I own which actually fits. The band is a little loose, but I hardly care. My only complaint is that the lace on the straps is visible with certain low cut tank tops, and it likewise can't be worn with spaghetti strap tops. If it came "lace free" it would be perfect.
