I am in love!!
Prepare yourselves for a very long rave.

This bra is magic. I want to sing. It's just about everything I've ever wanted in a bra. I haven't measured it yet because I put it on as soon as it arrived today and I refuse to take it off. I'll get to it.

I was honestly about to give up on unlined bras, but this one is it for me. So comfortable! No wrinkles! Perfect wires! It even gives me enough side support, which is where many bras that 'fit' lack for me. I'm ordering it in two or three more colors right now (it's the first bra to fit that isn't discontinued yet! Woo!). I swear, I could cry. AND it's the least expensive bra I've bought (that wasn't from a fellow Bratabaser, that is). I can't speak to its durability yet, but if it doesn't hold up terribly long, I won't be too heartbroken at this price point.

The stretch lace cups are very adaptive, and give my slouchy, conical breasts a surprising amount of lift and rounding, while still looking natural. It definitely allows for a good bit of jiggle, but in a much more comfortable and secure way than my Natori Feathers. It actually makes my boobs look bigger (even through clothes) by some sort of witchcraft I cannot explain. And the lace is sooo soft! The gore is nice and wide enough to prevent any wrinkling or gapping, which is basically a miracle in my far-spaced center-shallow world. This is also a true demi, and it is VERY low cut. On me, it is as low as it can possibly be without my areolas peeking out, and they try. Be warned.

The band is probably a bit too large (my snug underbust is 26" and this is supposedly a 32), but I'm surprised to say it is actually staying in place pretty well. I think it helps that the cups allow for enough immediate projection, so my boobs don't move them around to find more space. There is only one row of hooks in the back, and I'm thinking it would be pretty simple to alter the band a bit smaller if need be. I have it on the tightest hooks currently.

The straps are wonderfully long and fully adjustable. Little thing I love that most bras don't do: the adjuster section starts at the -front- of the bra instead of the back, so you don't have to take it off to tighten/loosen them. Awesome.

If you are much larger, more center-full, or close-set, I can't say whether or not this would fit and support you well. But if you're similar to me... try it. Trust me. I measure about 26DD (almost always wearing 28D), so I didn't think this 32C would fit very well, but apparently it runs small in the cups and band. Size up for sure.

Note: These bras are made of a somewhat shimmery material, so the wine color is actually not such a bright red as it appears in my photos. It's a little bit darker and duller in person -- which I really prefer.

    Sounds perfect!! So happy for you!!

    Oh, I really like the look of this! I'm going to be on the lookout for one in my size.

    gratiat Why thank you! :D

    Love4Pollinators Yay! Me too! Haha. And I love your username. I miss the bees around here. :(

    alexad The sizing is definitely weird. I just posted the measurements for mine (though depth is always a tricky one). Apparently they don't make it in cup sizes larger than C, but the stretch ratio is kinda huge... So I might suggest you try it in 34C first, if you can get free returns.

  • alexad Depending on your shape, though, the 32C (70C) might work for you as well.

    Omg. I have been meaning to try one of these. Brb, ordering.

    runs_with_scissors , same! It looks like the rare unlined bra that would work for shallow breasts.

    I think I'll wait until I'm done altering my current bras though. I've got quite a few alterations I want to do first.

    Oh that looks like a good fit! Glad that you found it! I would like to try it, but I don´t think it is available here.

    runs_with_scissors Seriously. I think you'll love it.

    bellea It is definitely shallow-friendly because it's so flexible. The cup basically looks completely flat when it isn't worn, and it stretches outward, so it conforms really nicely.

    Ah, shame it doesn't come in larger cup sizes! Looking at the measurements for 34C, I don't think it would work, unfortunately.

    Looks great on you though!
