Didn't fit

Bought from a bratabase user. The appearance is so beautiful yet the bra is very sturdy and if it fit better I can tell it would be wonderfully supportive. I love the relatively tall cups, wings, and gore; If this bra fit it would be probably my favorite bra ever. See my profile page for my measurements and breast shape info!

My fit: Band a little too big on my 26 back, I can fit my hand into it, but it's firmer than a Freya I'd say. Too open in the top of the cups for me, I gape in every position I try except standing up with good posture with my shoulders back. Too shallow in the lower cups because after a few hours I feel minor pain in my lower breast so that leads me to believe they are being pressed too hard.

If I grasp the cups and hold them against myself, the cups are filled with breast tissue, so I don't know if that means technically it's not too big, rather it's just too open up top. Straps and cups and wires are too wide: outer lower sides of cups are empty, the top of the cups painfully dig into my armpits big time, and my arms Touch the cups and push against them. Overall it was a miss but it was exciting to try my first padded/moulded/lined/whatever you call these type of cups. I may try to alter the cups to fit better.

    If you're up for some serious alterations, this bra may still end up fitting you! Charlotte is actually great bra for altering, because there's lots of ways to 'cover up' the bits you did bra surgery on.

    I had similar problems with my Charlotte (straps too wide, frontal 'armpit' cup-part uncomfortable when moving my arms).

    *Alteration*: I moved in the straps & reduced the outer front cup / armpit part - removing and then re-attaching the shiny satin side sling.

    First I used seam rippers to remove the straps and loosen the satin part - just leave this hanging. Then I removed a bit of the foam part underneath. Trial and error how much / at what angle the armpit area works for you - use pins to try on! If it needs some tweaks, try cutting off more foam or pin differently.

    Once you're happy with the armpit part, sew this new outer cup edge and try it on again (the satin is still hanging loose btw.) Works? Arrange the satin sling with pins and cut bits off where needed. Then you can re-attach the satin side sling (also helps to cover up your sewing underneath). Finally, re-attach the straps, set narrower and / or at a bit of an angle.

    Here's a link to a less specific but more technical explanation:

    This alteration also made my Charlotte fit smaller, which is why it may solve your gaping.
    If not, you could also (alteration 2) lower the cup edge by removing the black piping (or cutting part of the cup and adding new piping).

    bubblegum ahh you are a genius! I am trying to practise more sewing so thank you for this. i may work up the courage to do this bra surgery.

  • Edit: alteration 2 does interfere with alteration 1 (needs to be done at the same time). Pinning is your friend: in the first steps of alt.1, trying on with pins should already make obvious if the armpit surgery helps solve the gaping or not. If so, alt.2 is not necessary but if it is, you can do both.

    Hope this makes sense!
