Used to fit

For reference I have FOT and pendulous breasts with short, wide roots. My breasts are splayed, and high set.

I tried the Panache Harmony Balconette (which is very similar to this) in a 32KK with an extender to make it fit like a 36JJ, and due to the semi adjustable straps and bandless construction, the Harmony offered little to no support and really let me down, although the side profile was nicely rounded. I wear it to sleep because the material is really lightweight and soft. I received this bra in a grab bag from Break Out Bras, and wasn't expecting much. I ordered it in a 38JJ because my usual size of 36K was unavailable. When I tried this bra on, it confirmed my suspicions about why the Harmony was a let down. The fully adjustable straps and banded construction helped me out, and this bra is easily one of my favorites in terms of support, comfort, and shape.

The materials on this bra feel luxurious and silky. It's easily the softest fabric I've ever felt on any bra. The band is a little bit loose, but I'm planning on altering it to fit like a 36 because I'm already wearing it on the tightest hooks. The straps are adjusted almost all the way, which is normal for me because I'm short with high set breasts. I wasn't expecting to like the appearance of this bra because "nude" and "fullcup" are usually things I avoid like the plague, but the shade of nude and design of the cups are actually quite pleasant to me. Lots of bras in this size range seem to hide the size of my breasts, but I actually do feel quite busty in this bra for some reason.

The shape is very natural and rounded. It makes my boobs look supported and nice without being "in your face" about it. It looks very nice under shirts and on it's own. It makes me look slimmer than other bras I own that make my boobs look too obvious.

I wore this bra for 14 hours while running errands and such, and I didn't have to readjust at all. Because of my short stature I usually have to pull my bra down a little bit because the wires start to dig due to being too tall. I really never noticed it until I wore this bra all day and forgot I was wearing it. The lightweight material kept me cool and minimized boob sweat even on a really hot and humid day. The only reason I took it off was to measure it for Bratabase.

This bra is discontinued, but you can still find it on eBay and other sites. I'd seriously recommend it if you think your breasts are like mine. Feel free to look at my other reviews to see what else fits me.

    dbmamaz I love the Melody and the Rita. The Eliza is starting to grow on me. I just need to alter the straps and I'm probably going to love it. The Tango is meh. I'm honestly starting to get sick of that bra in general.

  • Makes me feel better about never having tried it! Of course, we know we dont fit the same bras tho lol
