Didn't fit

Shape: round, projected, even, close set, on the narrow end of average root width.

Well, nuts. This bra is stupidly pretty. The delicate, stretch lace and the slightly shimmery peach-toned cream fabric is gorgeous, classy, and sexy as hell. The problem is that it doesn't fit.

Fit issues:
1) Band too stretchy for me in a 30E. It doesn't go down to a 28F, so I'm stuck fastening on the second and tightest hooks for best fit.
2) This is a somewhat shallow bra. Not enough immediate projection (check the fit pictures, tons of wrinkling at the bottom of the cup), and I definitely have more upper fullness than the bra is expecting. I get a tiny bit of quadding on my larger side.
3) Gore is too tall and awkwardly separates my very close set breasts; it soft tacks to breast tissue, not my sternum.

Also, I'm a bit concerned about the longevity of the stretch lace on the top of the cup. Some parts of the lace weave have little holes in them which I suspect could get larger over time if the fabric is ever snagged. It looks, and probably is, more delicate than other stretch lace I've encountered.

So, all that said, I am totally going to overlook the fit problems. I know, I know. The fabric and lace, in addition to looking flat out amazing, are very soft and comfortable. At least with this particular bra, the fit issues are not complete deal breakers for the trade-off in looks and comfort. It's not my best fitting bra, but if I want to feel comfortable AND look elegant, I will reach for the Clara.

    Nice review! If I may suggest, narrowing the gore by stitching the wires as close as you can will help you being more comfortable. And this will make the band a little tighter.

    charlielheureux That is actually an excellent idea. I may experiment with that modification :)
