The Rihanna bra is based on the shape and style of the Juna bra by Cleo. The Juna comes in Ivory, Nude and Black and the Rihanna is a Teal/Pink/Grey print that reminds me of a pixelated 80s video game... or a 80s watercolour. I can't place it but I like it https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
I tried on the Juna and Rihanna in a million sizes and couldn't get the shape to work on me - puzzled the hell out of two fitters - and by luck tried on a 28H.
I usually wear a 28 or 30 band in Cleo and in this style I most definitely needed the 28 band - the fabric is soft and stretchy and if you're between sizes definitely go the smaller size. The Juna model feels loose on me in a 28 band, but the Rihanna feels good in the 28. The fitter said that the Juna runs a bit large in the band due to slightly stretchy fabric.
This shape - padded balconettes that smash your boobs to your chest and just end without a 3rd, horizontal top section - work terribly on my shape. The Juna and Rihanna was no exception.
Both the 28GG and the 30G (my "normal" sizes) give me OK coverage but the moulded top of the cup kind of cuts in a bit leaving a lot of fleshy stuff pushed up against the lace edge in the middle but the lace kind of poofs out towards the center gore. It's a mess. And if I bent over I'd start to fall out.
The lace edge on the Rihanna is tighter than the lace edge on the Juna. Going up a cup size gave me more coverage with the cup ending a bit higher up the breast allowing the tighter lace edge to hold me in place a bit. The Juna lace just kind of stuck upwards and didn't follow the contours of my chest at all.
The fitter (the Juna was her favourite bra) assured me that end of the moulded cup and the lace edge soften up and sit better after a few washes. Will have to see how that goes.
I found that in my normal size - the 28GG - the top edge of the bra just finished at a bad place on my shape.
This is my first and only 28H in my wardrobe.
I also find that the straps on the Juna/Rihanna very wide on my narrow shoulders. That said, this is nicely padded around the underwires so it should be comfortable to wear.
I wore this for a day of shopping with my niece (a toddler) and my sister and I found I kept falling out of the top of this bra. It shows under white/pale tops. Good for a day at the office wearing black perhaps? Or on the weekend? Not a great everyday bra for me!
