Fits

Okay. I'm calling this a win, despite the band size. My underbust is 26 and this is a 30. I barely have to pull the band in order to fasten it on the tightest hooks (meaning it isn't really stretching to reach around my ribcage), so it is clearly too big -- but it also seems to be staying in place just fine. Let's hope it doesn't stretch out too much.

The cups add a little more size than I'm usually comfortable with, but they fit very well. They provide an attractive push-up effect without any gaps or quadding (when I adjust the straps properly), which is nice to have as a bra option. This bra is great for far-spaced breasts that are broad-rooted, and full on bottom and outsides, like mine.

I feel a bit irresponsible keeping this one, since the band is large and the level of padding is more than I expected -- but it fills a serious void in my bra wardrobe. I really needed (and have been searching for) a totally seamless, low-cut, beige bra with convertible straps (why aren't all straps detachable?). This completely fits the bill, aside from the large band. It disappears beneath my clothing, it is incredibly comfortable, and I think it's really pretty. The material is nice, and super smooth. I love that. The scalloped edge helps the outline of the cup to disappear under thin shirts, which I think is clever. If the band gets too loose, maybe I will be able to alter it somehow.

I may start petitioning Wacoal and Timpa to make their bras with smaller band sizes. Unfortunately, the best-fitting cups I've found have bands too large, and it's bumming me out.

  • I'm glad you love the b.tempt'd b.wow'd. if you would like to convert it to a "28D" try using a Rixie Clip.

    This was one I kept for a long time too, despite small fit issues! I'm still tempted to grab one when they pop up here. It made transitioning to my new bra size easier since it was more like what I used to wear.

  • Saskia_C That is a very, very good idea!

  • If you like the b.tempt'd b.wow'd you might like to try the b.tempt'd Sheer Delight.

  • There are a lot of reviews on Amazon that say this stretches out really quickly. I've tried it on, and I can see this happening. It's some odd material that starts off really tight but loosens up a lot really quickly.

    Altering bands down is really easy, and you have a much larger pool of possibilities once you get the hang of it. It also means you can keep your favorite bras for longer, so long as the cups are intact. :)

  • Why do the comments on this post keep double posting? :

  • you could try altering the band to make it smaller, I've seen lots of tutorials online and they seem pretty easy.

  • bellea & addictedtoyou -- I likely will alter all of my bands down eventually, when I get the courage to do so. I think I will actually start practicing on my super old 34A bras, so I don't have to worry about ruining a new/expensive bra if I screw it up. In the meantime, I will probably try something like a Rixie Clip or other band tightener. I worry about damaging the material with those metal teeth it clamps on with, though.

    I have no idea why comments are double-posting... That's really weird. :/

On Jun 2016 It fit her! View measurements

The cups add more size than I usually prefer, but they fit perfectly. The band is definitely too big, as I have it on the tightest hooks and it barely stretches at all to fasten -- but it also seems to be staying in place, so I call that a win.
