Used to fit

This is a pre-loved bra for me, so the band feels a little loose on the loosest hooks - but it doesn't appear to be riding up, so it's supportive enough, which means I should get plenty of wear out of it.

The gore is quite wide for me, but it sits low and is very short, so it tacks properly without any problems. No surprise, being a plunge, but amazingly, despite my inner fullness and soft tissue, I don't fall into the centre of this bra the way I normally do in plunges. The cups are pure non-stretch lace, with a seamed non-elastic edge.

The trade-off for a plunge that works seems in this case to be the shape the bra gives me. It doesn't bring me forward, so from the front I look quite wide, and in profile the shape is not particularly uplifted and quite natural. It's not a bad shape, I just prefer to be a little more forward so my arms don't come into contact with my breasts.

The wire is quite short on this one; I normally need a much larger wing height to contain my tissue, but despite the wire finishing so low I'm not having any problems with falling out the side either.

All in all this bra is a bit of a mystery to me: by all accounts it really shouldn't work for me: it's closed along the top edge of the cup, the wings are too short, it's a plunge. And yet it does. I guess it's simply the cut of the cup!

Empreinte are a difficult brand to find cheaply, which is why I snatched this one up -- but if you do get a chance to try one on, nab it, because honestly the comfort of this bra is flawless. One thing to keep in mind is that this model at least runs large in the cup: I'm a 30FF in most everything I've tried so far, but the 30F in this is perfect.
