First I'd like to mention that this bra's rose gold metal parts have started staining the bra green after 9 months. Even though I didn't pay full price it's still disappointing.
This bra technically fits but it's just not the best bra for me. The band is snug enough, the cups are deep enough, the gore tacks, etc... but the way it was constructed makes this bra useless at supporting heavy breasts. The straps on Phoebe don't connect to the cups. Instead they stop near the cups and are attached to the very thin mesh that acts as a slide sling both outside and inside the bra. You're getting your support from 2 layers of mesh! It appears that the band is very rigid while the wires are too malleable. So instead of the wires remaining stable while the band stretches to fit your ribs, the opposite is occurring. I will admit that I loved how tight this band was because I'm in between sizes and this was just right for me. Honestly, the design/construction is the worst I've ever tried on. I get more support from my pre-bravengelized size of 36D, that's how bad it is.
It's such a gorgeous bra but it's useless to me. I loved the color, the stitching, the rose gold metal, the cage back, the keyhole at the gore, but all those cute details mean nothing when my breasts aren't supported. I really wanted to love this bra and I had such high hopes for it, but the Phoebe just couldn't live up to my expectations.
