Magenta/orange colorway:

I found this NWT very inexpensively on Ebay and thought I would give it a shot, as I love my Cleo Marcies but have had trouble finding a good size in Lily since it's been discontinued. Previously I tried a 30G aqua and a 30FF magenta, and neither seemed to work. This fits nicely with a couple hooks of an extender to start out, as my underbust is 28" and this one runs quite firm in the band, so I find the shape is optimal when it's not being pulled to max tension. I think my best size would be 30FF, the same as I take in Cleo Marcie and Alexa.

I don't love the colorway at all (especially the neon orange straps) but I'm totally willing to overlook that because the uplift, centering and rounding this bra provides is just magical! It makes your frame look narrower from the front, and from the side it gives a beautiful globe-like profile. It feels very contained and secure, at the same time that it provides a very subtle cakes on a plate effect, almost like an unlined half cup would. There is excellent depth at the bottom of the cup and near the center gore, the fabric is smooth under shirts (even if the color is more difficult to disguise), and it's comfortable to wear all day. Overall, it's a great fit for my narrowish/projected and even shape, and I think it will be a great workhorse bra for me.
