Didn't fit

My shape: Low set, soft, narrow and short rooted, slightly centre full and pendulous.

I've wanted this bra for quite some time, but wasn't sure how it would fit or what size to try, so I was glad to see it pop up on bratabase. I decided to give it a go. Pre ABTF I used to only wear push up plunges but, since finding ABTFs, I find that half cups and balconnettes give me a better shape (less pointy). I do like plunges though...

Anyways, this one has some slight signs of wear on the gore and band, but the cups and straps are in really good shape. I think the satiny material is really nice, and the bra is light. I like that it is made of satin material because it'll slip off my shirt instead of making a bra tent. The shape it creates is fairly round.. a little bit pointy on me, but then again, this bra is slightly too small on me. I get some bubbling on my centre tissue. Perhaps with a tiny bit bigger cup I would get a more rounded profile. Still, it's pretty good compared to some plunges I've tried.

The comfort is great... like I said, it's a nice light bra with a satiny exterior. It's good quality, but I wouldn't say it feels high end. The band is stretchy though, and too big for me. I tried it on the tigest hooks, which works for me, but then I have no more hooks to use if it stretches anymore. Not sure if that's because it's used or just because the band comes stretchy. I have a feeling it's probably a bit of both. The straps are very adjustable, even on my tall frame. The black flower pattern is pretty and I can match it to a bunch of different colour bottoms, which I like.

overall, I marked it as non-fitting, but will keep it and wear it (especially on my pre-ovulation days). I don't need a bra to be 100% in every way to be happy with it. As long as it's wearable and mostly fits, I'm happy!

This bra is not owned any more

  • Beautiful! I debated whether or not to get that one because of the band measurement. I do still want to try one of them though.

  • What a beautiful bra! This looks fabulous on you.

    Calluna thanks, it looks like we're wearing the same size these days, and our measurements are so close!
    rachaelll thanks.

  • Actually, your measurements are better for the band than the listing had so I could probably do it. I’m happy with 29-30” stretched bands right now, sometimes 29.5-30” if I feel more swollen. I think that we are pretty close, but you can do slightly snugger bands than me.

    Calluna , I am a little bit conservative when I stretch bands. I follow the instructions on this site...I only stretch them until I see the wires bending, and I measure from hook to eye (not from the hook to the end of the band). Not sure how consistently people measure like that. There were a couple measurements for the 30FF that said the band stretched to 32-33", with the previous owner of this particular bra measuring it at 32.3" (which would have required a firmer stretch for sure). It does feel stretchy though. I definitely could use a 28 in this model.

  • Yeah, it was closer to 32” which is why I passed on it. I’m also a conservative measurer. I initially measured hook to band end but now do hook to hook. I’m super nervous about over stretching as well. But the one rachaelll posted looked too small for me in the 28 band. So I think 30FF is right for me. Should you decide to part with this one, I might take it off your hands.

  • Calluna , I'll let you know. I have only tried it on so far. I need to wear it to see how it will work, and I'd like to try it during 'low tide' to see if it still cuts in. I'll keep you posted though if I plan on selling it!

  • Oh of course. :)

  • It's a beautiful bra and it looks great on you!

  • Thanks Sonya
