Me: very soft tissue; Measurements: UB 68/72 cm (26.5/28.5"), Bust 87/92 (34/36.5")

What a difference going up a band size in this style makes! I am literally right between Ewa band sizes (tight UB 67 cm, loose UB 72 cm) and sometimes 65s feel too tight and sometimes 70s feel too loose. However, I decided to try a 70 in this style because have been noticing that the wires in the PL and 3D styles are more flexible and that the tighter 65 bands were pulling the cups too flat (and therefore affecting the fit).

And it looks like I was right, because I get a much better shape in this size. Not only is the projection better, but the cups are closer together which gives me actual cleavage. And I never have cleavage! The top edge on this plunge is a little more closed than others I have seen. This is a positive for me actually - it feels a little more secure and I have less jiggle. This fabric feels quite stretchy - I am happy with it (there are four hooks after all), but some people may want to size down.

The fabric is very soft and smooth and has a bit of shine to it - some people will like it and some won't. Personally, I do. The pinstripes, buttons and oversized bow all go together in a way that I find very appealing. There are a couple of loose threads here and there, but easily trimmed off.

All in all, I am happy with it. I'm glad I decided to try out another PL.

    SO glad you posted this comment and the measurements. I'm sitting hear waiting for this to arrive. And I was terrified because people kept saying they run small and wide, but that wire measurement gives me hope! And the depth! Thanks for making me excited again!

  • The more I wear this bra, the more I love it! I only own one other PL (Onyx in 65E), and the cup measurements are the same (but the cup placement and proportions in the 70DD are so much better for me.). The difference is that the top edge is a little more closed, so maybe that's why it feels small to them?

    It could be that people are comparing styles also. I posted on someone's bra adventure that I wear 2 different sizes depending on model - more of a 70D/65DD in half cups and a 70DD/65E in PL and 3D.

    I think you will love this bra once you put it on!

  • I'm hoping it's not too closed for me! I just want it to arrive already so I can find out!
