I was in Toronto this past week, so of course I had to stop into Broad Lingerie, owned by Sam Conover. I'd say I've almost become friends with Sam and Shavaun, or at the very least we're all friendly and they recognize me when I come in. Last time I visited was for their first anniversary party in April, and when I talked to Sam then, she mentioned she had placed an order for this bra, and made sure to include my size in the order since she doesn't stock much in my size on a regular basis. Of course, I was ecstatic when she pulled this out for me to try this past week, and I was thrilled that it fit as perfectly as I could have hoped.
I'd been meaning to get more BM bras since they fit me so well and they're so comfortable! First of all, this bra is absolutely stunning. The lace is a slightly dusty purple and it has a neat triangular trim along the cup's top edge and band's bottom edge. The elastic is all a complementary kind of coral pink, and the thread is the same purple colour as the lace. However, I did notice a few places of uneven stitch tension, which I'm not sure if it's just this bra, or I've only noticed it now because it's a contrasting colour and I'm actually learning to recognize these things through learning how to sew. That's the only reason I've given this bra a "good" quality rating instead of "excellent".
The fit and comfort is exactly what I've come to expect from the BM cut. The all over lace is stretchy and very soft. The whole bra has a stretchy, fine black mesh lining. It accommodates bottom and upper fullness very well, but it does require at least averagely tall roots, I would say. The straps are fully adjustable, but if you need the straps shorter, you have to manoeuvre the strap adjusters over the transition to the decorative strap portion, which can be difficult at times. The band is very soft but very firm, from what I can tell. The texture of the lace does show a bit through thinner knit tops, but it doesn't bother me too much.
Overall I think I'm going to be very happy with this bra! Thanks once again to Sam at Broad Lingerie, and if any of you lovely folks have the opportunity to visit her store, I 100% recommend it!
