This fits and it only cost me $15.95 cad!! You know how I bargain shop people!
My first Nessa. I don't know why it's so cheap! There's nothing wrong with this; it was a brand new bra & I can tell that it's never been tried on. It's just an older style from Nessa. This was bought through Fruugo.ca (the same ... website is Lingerie-Superstore.com for people in the US); it's probably worldwide on Fruugo, if you have that website in your country (I thought they were worldwide like amazon).
The Band: very interesting b/c it's not like any other Polish brand I've tried on, tbh. Not super stretchy, it's firm, I can't tell it's going to last a while. Like the fabric is...stiff, I guess. I stretched it to 29 inches for a 70 band (32 UK). I *could* stretch it farther, but I just give it a gentle stretch, until the wires distort.
Underwires: you know, Nessa (at least this bra) is not that much wider than Gorsenia underwires in the same size. I compared a Gorsenia bra that currently fits me now as well (70I in Gorsenia) The Nessa underwires just slightly go a bit wider towards the armpit than the Gorsenia underwires; the Gorsenia underwires are more U shaped. But I was surprised, somehow I was thinking Nessa underwires would be WIDE, they're not at all. They're not anything like Freya at this size! (I know b/c I currently have a Freya in my possession that I am returning through amazon). They're typical Polish underwires, imo.
The cup: compared to the Freya bra I just tried, the lining in the interior of the cup is soooo much better. It's silky! The Freya cup was so rough and scratchy, and totally see through! The exterior has embroidered fabric. I don't have one embroidered bra, this is my first!
Bra straps: very thick. built for comfort.
Gore: does not seem to bother me but I only wore it for five minutes (I have a scratch on my underarm, so I can't wear a bra currently, until I let it heal) I'll report back if the gore is problematic, but it seems it will be fine.
Immediate projection: you know, it's interesting. I do have some wrinkles under my smaller boob, while my larger one seems to fill out the cup better. I'm not 100% even on both sides (as most women).
Overall feel of the bra: Firm band, I feel like the construction is quality, like typical Polish construction.
I don't know why it is soooo reduced. I can tell it's brand new; it's like it just got stuck in a drawer somewhere at the Mio Destino store, then someone finally found it. ; )
Update: It's hard for me to judge comfort, I've only worn it once. So, I won't comment on comfort at this time. Also, this Dusty Pink colour works well as a "nude" if you have colouring like mine! FYI.
