Didn't fit

This lined half cup bra gives me classic cakes on a plate cleavage. The color, called Butterscotch, is a clear, honeyed version of beige. The cups fit extremely well, as most of my Fauve half cups do. Fauve's half cups are on wide and deep, compared to some other brands' half cups. Each cup has two vertical seams. My theory is this helps make the shape very round. My breasts are round, even in terms of top or bottom heaviness, and neither shallow or projected. Out of the dozen or so Fauve half cup bras I've tried, only the blue Lucia and the Pearl have been too deep. All the others, including the unlined ones, have been great fits.

The fit and finish of Fauve account for the line's higher end pricing. There is no break-in period for these bras. Nothing scratches, pokes, or presses unevenly. This is a nude-for-me bra, but it's not boring. The cups have tonal embroidery pattern that resembles stylized leaves. There are flat, squared off bows at the gore and straps. The fully adjustable straps have a ruched texture that prevents slippage. The wings are mesh. Elastic at the top and bottom of the wings do not dig in. The tension created by the elastic doesn't overpower the tension of the mesh in the wings. Unlike some bras, this one doesn't cause back fat..

If I had a decent amount of space between my breasts, my boobs would be completely happy with this bra. The center gore is not high for a half cup bra, but my breasts require an abnormally low gore to be comfortable. I can comfortably wear this during a 16 hour day, but wearing such bras day after day causes semi-permanent bruising on my sternum.
