|Strap width||1.2 |
Spilling out in the center, wrinkling at the straps. The underwire wants to sit well below my IMF. I think all of that means the cups are too shallow for me. The lace overlay does help disguise some of the issues, but not enough for me to make it work. I'm not sure why a 32 was recommended for me. Supposedly it runs small, but the band is stretchy and too big for me.

Give it a try! This bra gives me a subtle amount of cleave-adjacent shape, which is odd for my low, kinda wide-set shape. The lace layer has a smoothing effect, which is nice. It's a bit of a delicate thing, though. Try not to yank on the band or stretch it too far. I damaged mine due to adjusting while sweaty and angry. Still, my #1 favourite right now.

I am tall, with low, wide, shallow, widely spaced, FOB breasts and a promient sternum. This bra felt awesome from the second I put it on! I have sensitive skin, so the band feels a little scratchy, but I'm hoping that that will go away with a wash. The cups feel exactly right. I am normally a 32/34 D/DD (all combinations depending on brand, but I lean towards a 32 band and just wear bra extenders til the bands are stretched out) and this fits exactly how I want it to. This is my first Natori bra and I'm definitely going to explore more from this brand!

I typically only wear t-shirt bras, but this is great "special occasion" bra. The lace is gorgeous, as is the cut-out detail by the front strap. I love having an actual plunge neck bra too! I wish the outer edge of the underwire were slightly firmer/higher, but that's probably because I'm used to t-shirt bras.
When I was trying to determine my size (I'm typically a 30 band with DD or DDD), I had previously ordered this online in a 30DD and then returned it because I had the "orange in a glass" effect. My local bra shop said that Natori tends to run a little small and kindly recommended that I try this on in a larger band size (32DD), which was a much better fit.

I bought this bra in both 32DD and 32DDD, and both seem to fit pretty well. I'm almost, but not quite, quadding in the DD, and not quite filling out the DDD, so I guess I'll wait and see how the migration goes. Not really a fan of the lacy band, but I really love the shape this bra gives me. The wires are wide and comfortable, and the super low gore is wonderful.
ETA: After a few wears, I'm beginning to think this may be a tad too shallow for me. I'm getting a tiny bit of wrinkling at the bottom of the cup and it's riding down a bit, so that the wires aren't truly in my IMF. Hrm.

Comfortable. My sensitive skin approves of the lace. My prominent nipples are concealed. This bra actually makes cleavage for me which I had almost decided was impossible. Comfortable and lovely, but it is the wrong shape for my projected, narrow breasts. It is so comfortable, I find myself longing for it in a modified design....Natori, I hope you are reading.

A very comfortable bra!
This is the first Natori bra I got and I had to guess the size. I sister sized from my usual 28F. Unfortunately the cups are tad too small for me, I have quadboob. It is not that noticeable though, because of the outer stretchy mesh fabric. I think 32DDD cups would be spot on. The band is obviously too big for me, rides up, but I think the band runs small in general. I think it fits more like 30, not 32 (compared to UK bras, Panache, Freya, Mimi Holliday, etc).
What I like is that the cups are wide ... enough and shallow enough. I have shallow boobs, tall + wide roots. Plus it feels very comfortable when wearing.
ETA. I just wanted add that this bra has become one of my favourites! The quadboobing disappears when I wear the bra but due to strong wires, boobs stay in place. I guess the stretch lace is so forviging? So if I was to purchase another one, I could probably stay in the same size and not go up a cup.

Love this bra! My absolute favorite for fit.

I just received this in the purple color, a band up and cup down.
In the 30DDD I have an issue with the cups puckering, as the band has little give (barely any stretchy material, mostly non stretchy lace) measures about 27".
This band seems a lot better, and my issue with the puckering is gone.
This model fits my shape nicely, I like the sling-like cups. It is somewhat wide and shallow, but I don't have much of an issue with this model as I do with other wide/shallow bras, for whatever reason.
I don't have the issue in the 32 band like I do with the 30 where I scoop ... and swoop and quad but still pucker on top and bottom, which is nice.
In my experience with this bra, you should probably go up a band and down a cup.
As I mentioned, the cups are a little shallow and wires semi wide, but I have very narrow boobs, so I think this is intended for average roots and a bit of shallowness.
I'm very projected in the center and shallow on top, with soft tissue, so my tissue is mostly pushed down in this and distributed throughout the top and bottom of the bra. I'm assuming that's why it works for me.
If you have firmer tissue and need projection, consider going up a cup (or if you go up a band, stick with your usual cup instead of going down.
I don't have any problems with the cup separation either, which is unusual for me in plunge styles. This one doesn't taper off as much to the sides as I've experienced with many other plunges.
If you need straight, up front cups with little separation, but want a plunge, this should work.
Even if your boobs appear somewhat separate like mine, watch for tissue being distributed there after being lifted if you're not too perky-I need under 1" separation, preferably wires touching.
This bra's somewhat sling cups has also been nice for my tall, shallow roots, and doesn't cut in. If you have tall roots that project out more, I'd assume you may have issues with cutting in, especially soft tissue.
I also have lower set boobs and don't have any problems with strap length with this bra. I don't normally, but I guess I just luck out with straps.
The appearance of this bra under shirts is also one of mg favorites.
Very rounded and perky looking, but not semi artificial looking like the Decos.
I personally like the Deco shape, but for those who want padded bras with a more natural look than the Deco, I find this really nice. It gives a somewhat teardrop, perky look on me.
And as mentioned, this band had very little to no stretch. The lace band is very tough, not stretchy, so consider going up a band unless you're losing weight and have extenders or something
Edit: I noticed that the band rides up jusy slightly in this. Ah. Can't win.
Also, the cups pucker AND quad when scooped. I believe it's because the wires are just too wide for me in this and the actual cups have little coverage(NOT the mesh).
It's not noticeable under shirts, but it's not a perfect fit.
I'm only keeping this/ going to wear it and probably purchase a black because this model is my boyfriend's favorite, it's not major, and it's still comfortable.
For fit though, not spot on.

My first well fitting bra. I fit just as well in the 30 DDD, but band was a bit tight. I chose the 32DD but I can wear it on the middle or tightest hooks so I hope it doesn't stretch too quickly. I learned Demi's fit better than full cups. It is so pretty with the sheer part on the tops of the cups.
