I really, really wanted to love this bra. The Twilight Blue was gorgeous on the website and just as pretty in person. It was on the higher end of what I prefer to pay for bras, and the quality is definitely there, but it just didn't give me the shape I would have liked or the magical cleavage I expected based on the pictures.

I resized myself as a 28G a few months ago, as I have a 27" rib cage, but I'm finding that some of my 28G bras cause too much rubbing against my ribs, leaving them really sore at the end of the day. For that reason (and because this bra starts at a 30 band), I decided to try the 30FF. In terms of fit, I have no complaints. Looking at it in the packaging, I thought the cup would be way too big, but once it was actually on, it fit great. After a scoop-and-swoop I have a tiny bit of quadding along the inside edge of the cups, but it goes away once everything settles. The straps didn't feel too wide and they adjusted more than enough for me; the underwire felt comfortably tight, and while the bra did push the girls together, I didn't feel like they squished or flattened them any.

In terms of construction, this really is a lovely bra. It's a 3-section cup, so it's not as firm as my Cleo Maddie Moulded T-shirt Bra (7201) , but it is lined, so it's also not as flimsy-feeling as my Freya Marvel Side Panel Bra (1501). The allover lace didn't feel scratchy against my skin, and it looked pretty durable despite its delicate appearance.

Now, the reason I'm not keeping this bra is because it gives me a pointier shape than I'd like. Not super pointy, but 'natural' pointy. Still, I prefer a more rounded silhouette, so this is a problem for me. The other issue is that I don't actually have much cleavage in most bras, and I was hoping this bra would help out with that, but it didn't actually do too much. It helped a little, but I didn't really get much more than I get with Maddie (which isn't very much). I've seen reviews where people have said that you should go down a cup size if you want the amazing boost shown in some of the pictures, but I feel like there would be too much of an issue with quadding if I did that. I have FOB, self-supporting breasts with average-wide roots, and there's just a bit of separation between them--less than an inch, definitely, but still enough that I usually need to wear a bra with some kind of padding if I want really awesome cleavage. While this bra does have removable padding for smaller cup sizes (according to the website), there is none for larger cup sizes, so you have to depend on the bra's shape itself, and unfortunately for me, that didn't work out.

  • I found Jeanie Parafait Affinatas to give me more cleavage than pretty much any other bra I have. I have a superboost lace too but I did size down in it but not for more cleavage, I found my usual size too big

    What a coincidence! I tried both Parfait Jeanie and Parfait Casey about a week before this one, and Casey was the better fitting of the two (it was my fault, though, I think I got Jeanie a cup size too large). If I remember correctly, Casey gave me about the same boost as the Superboost did. I didn't bother to reorder Jeanie in the smaller size because I felt that the coverage would still be a little fuller than I prefer, but perhaps the smaller size would have worked better for me for cleavage.

  • I have the Casey too but I did the opposite and ended up with the Casey one cup small instead so I've never worn it as much even though I like the shape.
