This was one of the first bras I ordered in my Brascapade2018 and naturally I was still searching for the right size. I ordered this in 34E. I had to have it delivered to my friend's address in the USA because Bravissimo (gutted about this) doesn't deliver to me. Hence why one of the first bras I ordered I am getting among the last.
Even though the size is completely wrong (band is probably two sizes too big, and it's one cup too small), I can tell the shape this bra gives is exactly what I like. It's not rounded, but it's not pointy either... just, natural.
Now, the band I'm pretty sure doesn't run tts. It is extremely stretchy. Usually I can fasten a 34 on the loosest hook and it will still feel at first like it fits. Not with Dina... it is loose to the point of just feeling not supportive at all. I had to immediately fasten it to tightest hooks and even then it was still stretchy enough that it was riding up.
The cups seem to run true to size. I'm a 32FF and at 34E it was a cup too small. Really I just needed that little bit extra for it to fit... bummer. It's a three part cup, and it's really sturdy. I wasn't getting in cup quadding from the seams which happens to me a lot. Naturally the tops of the cups were cutting in because yeah, it's just too small. Even so, it felt like at the right size, it wouldn't have happened. I was getting some side spilling... again, too small.
IMPORTANT: the cup has no stretch at all. None. Zap. Nada. Asymmetry ladies might wanna watch out for that.
The gore is wide, but I'm pretty wide set so it's bearable. The reason it wasn't tacking perfectly is that overall the bra is not the right size. The wires felt perfect, seemed more narrow than wide, but again, the size is wrong, so it was messing up everything about the fit. They are very soft and flexible... really I barely even felt the wires.
Now the reason I bought this bra is because it's a basic black bra, nothing special, and then there's the little straps above cups that give it that special flavour. The straps are extremely stretchy but tight at the same time, and very very soft. I would say out of the whole bra, it's what fit me the best. They moulded perfectly to my breasts. The straps do seem a little delicate. I don't wash my bras in the washer or dry them in the dryer but I do know some ladies do it. I would absolutely not do it with this bra.
Dina is covered in nice soft mesh over the sturdy material used for cups. No nipples will show through it. Actually all the materials used in the bra are very nice and soft and comfy. The straps are amazing, a rare case when I don't have to loosen them all the way for them to not cut in to my shoulders.
I have to say, I am seriously considering getting this in 30G (actually now looking at the photos I'm thinking I might need a GG). I'm afraid that a 32 band will still be too loose for the way I like my bands (completely tight and unmovable). It's the first bra I actually want to order in the right size out of all I tried, that's how much I liked it.
