Fits

I absolutely love this bra. This is the first bra I've purchased in my size that even comes close to fitting like a bra should, and it looks pretty great, in my unhumble opinion. ;) It fits in all the ways a bra should fit, and I get incredible lift and shape.

That being said, I do have two minor grievances (the first of which I have read is a common one with the Lucy): The underwire is a tiny bit too long, and the very tip rubs against the end bit of the inside portion of my TOS, giving me a minor friction burn. Also, the piece of fabric that stands between the middle of your back and the hooks of the bra is about 3mm too short, causing it to itch ever-so-slightly.

The rubbing was much worse on my right side than on my left... I've tried bending the last couple inches of the wire, which I think will help alleviate some the friction, and I am going to sew on a small piece of fabric to the end of the hook-cover. Both are easy enough fixes to make this bra more wearable for me, but even if the wire still touches, it was only annoying to me once I had worn the bra a good 8 hours while at work. Up until that point, I was aware of it, but it didn't really bother me.

These issues will not prevent me from wearing the bra, but I will probably not wear it to work again (or doing extra-physical activities, I guess)... I look and feel too good in it, but I will continue searching for that elusive perfect fit.
