Fits

I quite like this bra. It's pretty comfortable and the fit is good, except for the wires being a bit wider than I need and the gore is a bit stabby. It also provides decent support for such a thin, lacy bra. As others have said, this is a great choice for short, FOB breasts. I have little to no upper fullness and this fits snugly all over and gives a great rounded shape. The profile I get is similar to the 28G Marcie I tried on in a boutique, but this closes off better on top. The band is snug for a 28, which I prefer, and I like the colour and aesthetics of the bra. It does, however, seem to showcase my asymmetry more than most bras.

  • I might have to give Lucy another try. When I tried it a couple years back, it was the wrong size, and I didn't get a great fit. This one looks like it fits nicely... maybe worth another try for me.

  • I saw that you added this and pictures and have been waiting on you to review it. I’m glad that you like it. Gives me hope about the size and fit though I had been under the impression that the Lucy bands were stretchier than the Kali, but both of yours look like they’re tight. I probably need a 30FF if you aren’t getting to 28” stretched.

  • The colour and fit on this bra are beautiful! Its good to hear that you got a firm band. I may have to give cleo another try. My last 28 band from them (Skye) was super stretchy

  • Thanks, all. I got this from Your Bra Store in Canada for $20 Canadian, so it's definitely a win. I love the super rounded look it gives. I'm pretty sure this wouldn't work for even or FOT breasts.

  • It’s weird. It’s listed as still being available on the drop down menu of sizes, but as soon as you select it, it says sold out (in this size). I’m glad that I didn’t get this one now because it would have been too tight. Plus it’s fantastic on you.

  • Thanks, Calluna. Yep, this is tight for a 28 band. Do they have it in a 30FF?

  • No they don’t. But I have found a parrot print Lily in 28G that’s tts that I am figuring out how to get.

  • Ooh, that sounds cute.

  • It is. I have wanted a parrot print Lily forever. I am just worried about it stretching to 28” which is the same as my under bust. I can use an extender, but then worry that it will skew the fit of the 10” deep cups. I am thinking about it seriously if I can come up with some money for it.
