Didn't fit

I don't know what it is about the Gladys that bewitched me into having to own it. I first saw it on Brastop and added it to my cart but didn't buy it, and much to my chagrin, it sold out in the size I wanted. So later when the opportunity to purchase it in a possible sister size came up, I bought it.

Perhaps it is the unexpected combination of the texturized dots and the lace trim with (I think they're called) rosettes, paired with the subdued color. The stock photos made it look almost pewter in color, but once it was in my hands I found it to be more of a light khaki color accented with silvery grey. The cups are seamed and lightly padded with a soft cottony material, similar to brands like Ewa Michalak or Comexim. The padding doesn't cover the whole cup, more like the bottom half. The lace part of the cups are unlined. The straps also have some trim on them, but this means they only adjust to a halfway point, which is something to keep in mind if you're really petite. Straps are usually a problem for me, but these were okay.

The Gladys is rather comfortable. It doesn't dig into my armpits or try to saw off my arms at the shoulder. The gore comes up a little higher than what I'm used to, but because the gore is so narrow, it doesn't bother me. Because I sized up in the band, I had to use the tightest hooks. However, after my experience with the Kris Line Mare Balcony bra I hesitate in ordering a 30 band. The Gladys also has side boning (!!) in the wings, something I consider a plus.

The bra is very much designed to give your boobs that "up front" look. The shape it gives my boobs is rounded with a slight point, which works well under clothing. It also lifts them up nicely. Rather than flattening your boobs, it gives some projection, which is nice. If you are looking for a nice bra to wear under work clothing or something subtly sexy with a unique pattern, I'd recommend the Gladys for you.
