Why, whyyyyy, WHY do I want to keep this bra?! I really shouldn't - but I just fricking loooove this bright green color!!
It doesn't fit horribly, but to be honest the dimensions don't really agree with me. As it is now, it's uncomfortable to wear.
Projection is actually pretty decent?
This stretch lace is quite forgiving (ideally I'd go up ... a size, but Ivory Rose stops at G, at least in this style, on ASOS). Apart from some in-cup quadding the cups fit okay.
The longline band is surprisingly comfortable, considering I don't tend to do well in longlines.
FYI it does run a bit big for a 32, but in a longline that's okay with me because of the larger surface area tension.
Mostly, the wires come up too high under my arms and poke uncomfortably - the added strip of boning in the wings is not helping with that.
I'm thinking the wires are too narrow, too, as they kind of stab my tissue on the sides.
Then, the straps are too wide-set (story of my life) so they end up in my armpits.
Also I would've -greatly- preferred a ballet back, instead of it going straight across - which somewhat unflatteringly cuts into my back fat.
So yeah, the reasons not to keep it do add up ):
Realistically I should send it back - still deciding.. - but THIS GREEN IS TOO GOOD!
Long story short, I'm actually considering some surgery on this glorious green longline - by lowering the wing area?
Oh and I couldn't find the model on here, and there's no name or serial number on the label? Even removed the quality control sticker to check. ASOS just listed it as 'fuller bust emerald lace longline bra' or something like that :/
* edited for better overview of pros and cons (trying to convince myself it's fine to keep haha?)
