I received this and a white version on Reddit's RandomActsOfBras, so both are gently used. As such, band measurements might be a bit off, although neither seems heavily used to me.
Talk about full coverage! this bra comes very high up, it shows under anything that doesn't end at my neck. This is probably great for ladies that need more coverage, and its great for not having a top seam under tight shirts, but its just too much for me. I feel like im wearing a very sexy vest =P its also too large in the cup for me slightly, right at the front of the cup it wrinkles. I think it probably needs someone with more projection than me, perhaps more full breasts in general.
Even so, this is a very comfy bra. Nothing digs and i feel supported. The shape is decidedly "retro", another no for me. It doesn't go into crazy pointy territory, but its very close to my naked shape, and just not something i'm comfortable with. part of this probably has to do with it being too deep; i think id get a rounder shape with less depth. The gore doesn't sit flush at the very top, but does everywhere else, which confuses me but doesn't cause any discomfort. The band has 3 hooks, feels snug without being awful, and didnt ride up on me at all.
Note: this has a very curved band. i took some pictures both clasped and undone to show, i dont know how that affects fit but its worth mentioning.
Looks wise, this is very classic black lace and cream mesh. There's a small bow and flower gem on the gore, very cute, and the band fabric has little dots (harder to see on the black bra). I'll be passing these on via Reddit, sad to see them go!
This bra is not owned any more
