Apparently this bra is often sold as part of a bridal set, and I can't say I'm surprised! Despite the poor fit I had in this size, it is truly lovely. The entire bra, including the band and straps, is covered in soft stretch satin, making it the softest and most elegant bra I own. The bow over the center gore is a gauzy white, making for a nice romantic touch.
The shape from the side is very round and uplifted. Since it's a plunge, it takes a little adjusting before my boobs sit properly in the cups. Of course, this may also be due to the fact that the cups themselves are a little small on me, but this bra sadly stops at a G cup, so sizing up is not an option.
Appearance aside, this bra absolutely did not fit. Once I received my shipping info email from Breakout Bras telling me which bras I could expect, I looked the Tiffany up and discovered that the band runs large. Again, THE BAND RUNS AN ENTIRE SIZE LARGE. Since my underbust currently measures 32-33 inches and is still shrinking, a 34 that fits like a 36 won't work in the slightest. Even on the tightest hooks, I can feel that it is too loose and see the back riding up before my eyes. To make matters worse, the elastic is extremely stretchy, so not only is the band large, it is not firm enough either. The final problem with the fit is that the bottom elastic on the band turns up. This may not be related to the too-large band, but instead be the result of the difference in stretch between the inner lining of mesh and the outer layer of stretch satin.
In spite of all these fit problems, this is probably one of the most comfortable bras I've ever tried on. It's crazy comfy! I only wish I could exchange it for a smaller size. I'm currently planning on altering the band to fit, because otherwise this is pretty much my dream bra!
EDIT: Sadly, this bra is just not going to work out. I will be listing it for sale in the near future. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
