Used to fit

I was concerned about getting this bra after my unsuccessful attempt with the Parfait By Affinitas Danielle Contour Bra (8501) - I thought perhaps I may have similar problems with the shape of the molded cups and find the padding uncomfortable. But my worries were for nothing! This bra is great.

Aesthetically, I LOVE the styling of this bra. I'm a fan of the retro pin-up look, and this bra definitely appeals to that sense. The red is a super-flattering color (red tends to be a good color for me, as I have pink undertones in my skin) and I really like the black piping along the seams and cup edges. I also liked the use of both the shiny side and the matte side of the satin - parts of the cups (the center gore, side slings and wings) have a glossier finish to provide contrast to the matt fabric elsewhere. The matching panties also use the contrasting finishes as well. A note about the panties - they do run small. I normally wear a medium, but the seller only had them in large. I figured what-the-hey and took them and to my surprise they fit quite well. So to those of you who want to buy this bra with matching undies, I recommend sizing up.

As for the bra, I could not ask for a more perfect fit. Everything about the cups and band simply works for me, despite my issues with other padded bras. I find the padding is not super thick, more like a light foam lining. It is definitely not as flexible as an unlined bra, but certainly not as thick as to cause fit issues or to feel like uncomfortable armor. I would say the padding is on par with the Deco as far as thickness and stiffness go. The wires are the perfect width and the straps and armpit edge of the cup are shaped nicely so as not to cut in. And as this is the plunge version of the Charlotte, the gore comes up to a nice height for low-cut shirts. Considering how low- and wide-set my boobs are, I get pretty good uplift and some modest cleavage. I know some people claim that Parfait bras run small, particularly in the band, I didn't really find this to be the case. I would say it is about as tight as my 32F Cleo Lucy - I find the band and cup volume to be rather comparable. They are both firm bands that I would place it between a 32 and 30, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend sizing up.

Overall, I'm super pleased with this bra and am glad to have another mainstay in my wardrobe.
