Fits

This is a beautiful bra, it fits and is comfortable, so I should love it, but I don't. It's because the single layer net cups are just not strong enough. My breasts aren't super-soft, but medium soft and pendulous. I need cups that are firmer on the bottom that give some lift. The only way I can get some shaping from this bra is to shorten the straps a lot, and even then the shape I get is only meh.

I would also like a firmer fabric on the back. The single layer stretchy satin bulges out between the top and bottom elastic. As MiskiDwie noted the floppiness of the back makes it hard to fasten. I'm afraid I'm going to put a finger right through it.

I haven't decided yet if I'll keep or return. It is very comfortable and I do love me a grey bra. I have a Fantasie Allegra on the way in purple. If I like it as much as I did when I wore 34FF I may order another in silver and then I'll return this.

    Thanks for this review. I've had this bra in my cart for a while. I have very soft tissue and prefer a more supportive cup, so now I'm not so sure.

  • letstalkaboutbras I think the cup might be a hair too large for me. Maybe if you size down? I would exchange mine but I don't like the soft back either so I'll probably just return.

  • letstalkaboutbras I am soft tissue as well and soft cups are tricky. If you size down you may find it more supportive but then there's the in cup quadding that can occur around the seams. That drives me bonkers.

    finallygotboobs It looks like you are holding your shoulders back to get the cups to tighten? Beautiful bra though...very ethereal in color.

  • fabulouslyfullfigure In-cup quad is the bane of my existence :( I get it in so many unlined bras. Nearly every one. It drives me crazy, too.

  • It is tricky for me too letstalkaboutbras and I like soft cup so much...I kind of live with a little bit of it in some of my bras I just can't part with :)

    fabulouslyfullfigure Same here. I just ordered 2 more unlined to try. xD

  • fabulouslyfullfigure no, not holding my shoulders back. I was actually leaning forward a little.

    I tried it on again this morning and the cups aren't too large after all., just not that supportive. The tops of the cups are somewhat open though.

  • Probably the camera angle then 😉 Are you keeping it? It's a beautiful bra!

  • Love this color!!

    Btw, Gorteks Marilyn Soft Bra (B-202) is the same cut as this, but it's made of a thicker, sturdier stretch jacquard type lace. Maybe that would interest you. :)

  • wild_muses is Marilyn closed on top? I like that one but I was afraid it would cut in.

    finallygotboobs it is unfortunately, it has a trim on the edge.

    fabulouslyfullfigure not sure if I'm keeping it or not. I'll wear it around the house and see if it grows on me.

On Apr 2017 It fit her! View measurements

Fits well, but have to shorten straps a lot to get lift, so they cut into my arms a little.
