TLDR didn't fit me, but its really cute and soft and i really had high hopes when I bought it. I've been so bummed out about this not fitting that I've avoided writing a review for it tbh.
When I saw this in the online store and for a decent price, I just HAD to try it. It looks good ... in pictures and it holds up in real life. There's three different kinds of lace, each with its own pattern. The bottom 2/3rds of the cup have this flowery lace and by flowery lace i mean the lace itself is weaved in various flower patterns. It is heckin cute. The top 1/3rd has vertically stretchy lace weaved in a diamond pattern (extremely stylish!) and the cup edge is another separate piece of very elastic lace, weaved like a band with lots of holes in it. The cups are lined with non-stretch power mesh. The wings have stretch mesh. The straps are shiny, lined with little lace hoops and just a little wider than I'm used to (1,5cm). I got the feeling the straps would be hard to adjust because of the hoops (loops?), but when I tried adjusting the straps, it was easier than on most bras! The decoration on the gore is stylish, more elegant than cute.
Let's just briefly mention that COLOR tho. It's red, but somewhere around wine red and wine purple. It looked hella good online and I still like the color when I have the bra in front of me.
Ah yes, the fit. For me it was not good. Plunge styles never work for me because of my pendulous inner full/vertically even shape, I always spill out the middle. This bra was no exception. There wasn't enough immediate projection as well so my breasts were pushing the cup away from my body and not filling out the bottom of the cup. The cup edge was cutting in to my inner fullness also. At the time of writing this in February, I haven't tried this on since April last year. It didn't fit the first time and since then my band size has increased, and I haven't really felt like trying on a bra that's gonna be too small even with an extender.
I think one of the reasons this bra was a poor fit is partially a clear shape mismatch, and partially some pretty stretchy cup fabric. I need firm non-elastic cup material for optimal fit.
This whole bra is so. SOFT. Everywhere I touch it it just feels velvety and silky and it is very pleasant! The wings' stretch mesh is really silky and the hook-and-eye closing part is so soft it feels like microfleece. All of the fabric used in the cup is silky and I don't think the fabric would be coarse or scratchy anywhere whilst wearing it. Even the wire channels are really soft to the touch.
It feels like a solid construction like a bra usually should. All the seams feel solid, nothing feels wonky or flimsy.
