- Center gore comfort:
- Underwires dig into sternum, because they are too high
- Cups separation:
- Too separate for my boobs

I had long admired the Parfait Charlotte from afar, knowing that the fit would be a horrible mismatch with my shape. Luckily PetiteCollegiate reviewed the new Floral Shimmer colorway and revealed that it’s actually narrow and projected! So I couldn’t help but order this from Large Cup Lingerie during a sale, especially with the free shipping they provide. It was recommended to size down 1-2 cups for this colorway, depending on your fullness. I decided to size down one cup size since I’m more FoT, and it turned out to be quite correct. I was amazed already when I opened the package at how deep and narrow the cups were! Cup depth and wire width indeed measure very similar to a 60HH Comexim plunge.
Although Charlotte fits pretty well, it’s not perfect for me for two reasons. First, the cups close in quite abruptly at the top. It doesn’t cause major quadboob but I'm still bulging over near the center, especially my bigger left breast. And I cannot wear this during the bigger times of a month. I think that extremely FoT/tall-rooted girls may want to stick to their usual cup size, or skip this one. Secondly, the gore is pretty wide. It’s apparently narrower than in the previous colors, but there is still space between the wires. And well, basically any gore that is higher than 5.5-6 cm will sit on my breast tissue. The wires are firm enough to kind of tack, but not so much that they would try to stab my boobs (like Panache ones).
The band runs pretty tight, and it fits me perfectly on the loosest hooks. The cups are very sturdy. Charlotte feels very supportive and pretty comfortable. Still, I can feel that I’m wearing it, and it’s not necessarily something I’d choose to wear on a day off.
As an unpopular opinion, I was not incredibly fascinated by the new colorway of Charlotte, and would have preferred the older dusty rose or peach versions. I just loved those color combinations, and I felt that the seam pattern was more apparent and the style more vintage-looking in the solid-colored ones. However, now that I’m holding this beauty in my hands (or on my boobs) I don’t really mind so much anymore. I have never seen a pattern like this. It's just incredible.
I also got the briefs in size S, because XS wasn’t available (Large Cup Lingerie team told that Parfait had decided not to make them). Unfortunately, these were quite big on me and baggy in the back, so I returned them. However, this bra would look great with any pair of black panties.
Despite small fit issues, I’m very happy for this beautiful and original addition to my bradrobe!
