Didn't fit

I'm so pleasantly surprised by this bra! Major fit adjustments have been made to Charlotte for SS16. It's now a great option for the narrow/projected crowd. This bra now runs big, so I'd recommend sizing down in the cup 1-2 cups depending on how FoB/short rooted you are.

Full review on my blog!

    This looks BEAUTIFUL on you!! I fell in love with this print the second I saw the preview photo. I thought I'd never be able to own it, since Charlotte was way too wide and shallow for me. Your review has given me hope! I've already ordered it in 3 different sizes; hoping one of them fits as beautifully as yours does on you. Fingers crossed. Thank you so much for posting this! :)

    No way ... a Charlotte that I might actually be able to wear?! Thanks for this review. I hope more measurements in other sizes get added, too. I've always been secretly jealous of this bra and the high waisted bottoms that go with it, but my attempt at Dusty Rose was also an epic fail. You mention that it looks great under a shirt - are the seams very visible under a thin tee?

  • This looks fantastic! If you come across another 28DD, that isn't $48, let me know!

    I saw this in the FB group and didn't realize it was you... Makes me want to try it even more!!!

  • This looks great on you! Makes me so happy too. I've wanted a Charlotte for so long, but the older shape made me decide against it.
    That pattern is so gorgeous too *_*

    Thanks for posting this! I bought it last night, and sized up in band and down in cup. I'm hoping it's a win! And in case anyone else wants to test her out, Bare Necessities has Charlotte on sale today for 25% off.

    Thanks everyone! I hope it works for all of you who try it! Make sure to add more measurements for it if you're trying more than one size. I'm interested to see how the scaling is in larger cup sizes.

    letstalkaboutbras The seams all lay very flat on mine, so I don't get any significant lines, but the pattern will show under a thin light colored shirt.

    RollsAndCurves Thank you so much <3 That's really amazing to hear!

    ginganinja Oooh thanks for sharing! :) I hope she works for you!

  • Lovely design indeed and it looks really awesome on you!

    One question - do you feel the wing height / armpit area has improved, compared to old Charlotte?

    2 weeks ago I finally ordered some try-out sizes in older Charlotte colourways, after AbracaBra posted a discount code for Largecuplingerie. I'm mostly concerned about the wing height / armpit rubbing.. 😐

    Still waiting for my order though. Excited to see if 'old' Charlotte works for me and if not, I'll know to give this new version a chance! Thanks for reviewing 😊

    To be honest, that's a hard question to answer because I really couldn't wear old Charlotte for any amount of time because of how incredibly painful the gore was on my breast tissue.

    I do have a very narrow frame though and I've worn new Charlotte several times all day and not been bothered by the wing height or any wire rubbing. The wings feel fairly low to me, and the straps are narrower set than my EMs.

  • Ok thanks! The possible armpit attack is what kept me away from Charlotte for so long. Good to know there might be a plan B (:

  • Is DD a different size from E in this brand?

    I wanted to come in and comment on my experience, because my Charlotte came in the mail today. I def agree with PetiteCollegiate assesment that this color way runs small in the band and large in cup. I straddle between 34G and 36FF these days, and this fit perfect in 38E. The cups are really deep (I recommend pulling the cup up, so your breasts fall into it as on first fit I thought it was too small but once I got all the tissue in the cup it's quite big enough), and the wires are narrow too. My only quibble is there at only 2 hooks in this size. I remember I previously tried this in 34GG and it had 4. Overall, I recommend this! Especially for those who had shape mismatch in previous color ways, and generally benefit from narrow wires and deep cups.
