Didn't fit

This is such a cute bra. I like that it's light and wispy, good for a summer day. Although it's made of plastic mesh type fabric, it's finer, softer, and more comfortable than most. The Sapphire/Amber is a nice colorway, a good deep periwinkle blue with cheerful carrot-orange ribbons. It gives a nice rounded bust appearance and, for such a thin bra, it hides headlights surprisingly effectively.

I was pretty happy with the CK Portia at my previous size, and once again, the fit is strong. Unlike most CK bras, this one has plenty of depth and there's enough immediate projection. The gore doesn't quite tack but the gap is minimal. Given that gore hardly ever really tacks for me, it's good enough.

The wispy lace on the cup edges is pretty forgiving for my top-fullness but the ribbon detailing can create a bit of an odd look. Although there's a smooth line along the top of the cup, there's a bit of a weird dented shape along the ribbon channel on my larger breast because the ribbon is less stretchy than the cup. This is generally only noticeable "that time of month" and is helped by loosening the strap on that side, although there's some loss of shape when I do that. I wish the ribbon itself was adjustable or stretchy.

EDIT: After wearing this a few times, I'm quadding over the course of the day. The band is also stretchier than I thought initially. Going down a band & up a cup size.
