Didn't fit

I wish this bra came in a 28C. Actually, if there was a half cup size inbetween C and D, I'd probably take that. The wires sit about a quarter inch too wide on the outsides for me, and I have a significant amount of wrinkling/gapping on my smaller side. On my larger side, it appears to fit well depth-wise, but the cup could be a slight bit tighter before giving me any quad-boob.

The gore is quite wide on this one, so I would only recommend it to those who are particularly wide-set. This is the closest I've ever come to finding a perfectly wide-enough gore, but it actually goes about an eighth of an inch too wide if I'm being nit-picky.

The lace on this bra is just gorgeous. It is just so pretty I want to keep it just to look at it sometimes. It is very delicate, but seems fairly high-quality at the same time. Unfortunately, I found this bra to feel uncomfortably tight and somewhat rib-squeezing (something to do with the wires, but I can't put my finger on it - I just know my breathing is constricted a little, but when I flip the bra around, the band doesn't feel too tight), so it's hard to justify keeping it. For the record, I do have a strange and flare-y ribcage, so this may not be an issue for you.

I have somewhat broad shoulders for my size, but I also found the straps to be just a bit too far apart. They dig into my armpits, and are also not long enough for me. I have them let all the way out, and I wish I could loosen them a half inch more or so.

    Oh wow. You are my new favorite person. This bra has been in my Amazon shopping cart for a few weeks and you just saved me from ordering it! The gore is definitely too wide for me (looks like for you too) and the cups run big. Too bad, it's so pretty!

  • runs_with_scissors Glad I could help! :) Yeah it's so pretty, I'm bummed I had to return it.

Fit information

On Jun 2016

The width of the wires and gore are ALMOST perfect for me, but both are a touch too wide. My larger breast fills the cup just enough with minimal gapping, but my smaller breast cannot fill the cup. There is noticeable wrinkling and gapping on that side, which shows under clothing. The gore is also very stiff, so it feels like is compresses my ribcage. The straps are also kind of short, I have them let all the way out and wish they'd go a bit further.

Top of the cup:
Wrinkles, can't quite fill it
Cups separation:
Too separate for my boobs
Band fit:
I can fasten it, but it feels too tight
Cup's width:
There is empty fabric on the sides (Cup too wide)
Center gore comfort:
Underwires dig into sternum, because they are too high
Strap separation:
Are too far apart
Straps adjustment:
Straps don't adjust long enough
