- This bra's measurements have been altered
Runs quite small in the cup and large in the band. The band measurements are identical to my Ingrid plunge in 70G, and like that bra, I could wear it without an extender if I weren't worried about strain on the hooks. The cups measure smaller than my Freya/Fauve 30Gs, even though this is equivalent to a 30GG. It does have much more immediate projection than those bras. The cup measurements are also nowhere near 2 volumes larger than the 70G Ingrid. They're a half-volume larger at most--too small for me.
Which would be fine, if the cup were open on top like Ewa and Fauve half-cups, but this is very closed at the center, and gives me quad boob. I don't think I can size up, because these wires (and therefore straps) are about the widest I can manage.
That's a huge disappointment, because I love the profile this bra gives otherwise. It's much more subtle, much less locked-and-loaded than a Ewa half-cup. But the quad is JUST significant enough to be noticeable under clothing.
Back to the drawing board on this one.
This bra is not owned any more
