this is a very pretty bra- the teal with polka dots is a cute combo, and the cream lace at the tops of the cups is a great compliment. there are also bows on the cup/strap connection and gore, and a tiny trim detail along the bottom of the band.
It does technically fit me, aside from the fact that i fasten the band on the middle. It seems quite stretchy, but as i haven't worn it for long periods of time, i'm not sure if it would become too large after a few wears and need to be sized down.The demi cup is great for my shape, with the top of the cup laying flat against me but not cutting in. i would say i get a gentle lift and slightly rounded shape. the straps dig slightly into my armpits, but nothing extreme. Under t-shirts, the seams and the top of the cup show through.
The major downside to this bra is the fabric choices- they make it very uncomfortable. The cup lining is softer, but the outside is a sort of weird crinkly overlay, which doesnt feel the greatest. They use the same material to make the straps, and it is chafing and scratchy like sandpaper- im red even with them too loose. This is especially bad in the fronts where they rub on my underarms. If this were in a different material i would keep it, especially since i'm having such a hard time finding a well fitting bra. But, i know with something this irritating i would end up throwing it in the dresser and never using it. Its probably better as a "fun" bra than a functional bra because of the show through and material choice.
This bra is not owned any more
