Blakely is a "lightly lined" T-shirt bra designed for everyday wear under most clothing. It isn't designed to lift and it's not padded. It encloses breast tissue and keeps it firmly in place. There's not much bouncing or jiggling, but it's not so tight I get sore, either. This style is well suited for my breast shape. If I wanted some va-va-voom, I would wear this style with just a little bit of bottom-cup padding (i.e. Aerie Bridget bra), but for t-shirts, and any other casual clothing, the Blakely is perfect. I don't know what's different between the Sunnie and the Blakely, but Blakely seems to fit me better. It doesn't cut into my tissue in the front the way Sunnie does. (To be fair, my Sunnie is a 30D, so it may be the size.) Blakely is a soft bra, and the underwire is gentle and not squeaky. There's a lot of bra for your buck, so it's not one I forget I'm wearing, but it doesn't leave lines or bruises either. Some Racerback bras can give me a terrible headache, but this one is very comfortable. The lace on the side panels and the little tassel on the front makes this bra especially cute.

  • Adorable details and lovely color!! Looks fantastic!

  • If the Sunnie is cutting into your flesh at the top edges of the cups, it is probably the size. The Sunnie has the most space at the top parts of the cups; in fact it is the only one I can wear due to my tall roots.

  • I have the opposite issue. The Sunnie is my BEST fitting bra and the Blakely doesn't fit me at all.

    Saskia_C Thank you for the information. I am so happy to learn it may not be the size not the style! The more bra options the better!) I need to try a Sunnie in a 32D. I have tried it in 30D and 32C. They never have them in stores, so I have to order them online in order to try them. It's not the top parts of the cups that dig in, it's the part right above the center gore. The cups cut a cross-section in my flesh. I will certainly try a 32D. Apparently Aerie doesn't make DDs.
    thelittleone - What is it about Blakely that doesn't fit you? I'm trying to gauge where the styles are different to see if I should order Sunnie in a different size. Depending on where it doesn't fit you, it could be that the Sunnie would work as well as Blakely if I can find a size that works. It's worth the trial and error for me. These bras are so comfortable.

  • Here is the link that shows the Sunnie digging in.

  • Aerie makes DD and some DDD bras, but they might only be available online and not in stores?

  • 1278 - Have you seen the DD, DDD, etc. with a size 30 band? That would be idea for me, I think. The online Aerie has the DDetc. beginning with size 32 band. I'm a little worried about Aerie's extensive sizing, because some of their newer models don't go down to size 30 (ex. Sunnie Wireless).

  • ShaniSunAZ - Sorry for the late reply. I hadn't tried the Blakely in a couple of years so I had to go try it on again so I could remember why it didn't work.

    On paper it should be a perfect fit, however the shape of the top line of the cup didn't agree with me at all. I quaded at the top of the cup and didn't fill out the cup when moving up a cup size. The way the side of the cup comes back in and attaches to the straps caused it to cut in and I had boob escaping out the side. I think I just require taller cups which I think the Sunnie has.

  • thelittleone - It sound like you have very similar shape issues. I'm about to pore through your reviews because I think they will help me very much! (Thank you!) I'm going to revisit Sunnie in a 32D. :-)
