Used to fit

I'm cheating slightly as I know the straps are actually too wide and within a couple wears will start falling off my shoulders because it has that new-bra, straps-fit-for-now feel, but since it fits in the important aspects I want to have a bra listed as 'fitting' for once! And for the time being they're staying put so it's not really inaccurate. Everything else miraculously seems to be fitting?

The band was a bit tight/ill-fitted on my first trial and started becoming painful after about a half hour. I was getting quite a bit of gaping at the top of the cups though it wasn't noticeable under clothes, with a strangely prominent horizontal seam on the right cup, which I asked Jaimie about. Jaimie suggested I try tightening the straps and to my surprise that actually did improve it a lot. (Side note: Jaimie from Bra Obsessed is awesome, if you did not know. She's been so very helpful giving me suggestions and recommendations, I highly recommend shopping with her.) It's not 100% smooth under clothing, even with two layers you can still see a bit of the edge where the horizontal seams meet, but it's not like a tiny cliff in my shirt now and matches the visibility of the left, so at least it's not lopsided.

With the tightened straps, the band seemed to stay put better, too. It didn't seem to start riding up, so I don't think the band was too big, but it was sliding down a bit before the strap adjustment. That seemed to dig in a bit and was causing me some discomfort. Wore it for a couple hours lounging around the house though and felt okay.

I have to say this is *not* the most supportive bra, though the look it gives is super uplifted, forward facing, and pointed in a way I enjoy. It seems fine for my sort of daily activities; I typically sit or stand at a desk all day and do not run or jump around or do anything else that would require more support. But if I try to do a small jump test there's significant movement and lands on the slightly painful side. It's the first time I've really experienced this in a wired bra, so I was a bit surprised. The straps do attach pretty far on the sides, though, which I'm sure helps with the forward shaping, but does mean the middle is relying on band and seams alone, especially with the short gore. So I think that makes sense there's less support, but it's something to be aware of.

It wasn't my first choice in design, but I actually do like it. The base is a nice medium warm beige, and the lace has coral accent flowers It's a bit dark and not yellow-toned enough to be a true 'nude' on me, but it'll at least be more subtle than the bright green/purples I currently have. I have a feeling the comfort may go up for me as I break it in more, but I'm not 100% on that yet. I'm excited to possibly have an actual fitting bra, though!
