I tried on this bra at a Nordstrom different from my usual store - and found a very pushy sales lady to boot who, in spite of everything wrong about this bra, kept telling me "it doesn't look that bad to me" and "there's just something about it I like on you" - and I'm sure that "something" was her potential commission on the $70 price tag.
First off, it is zebra print, and I do not like animal prints so I wasn't going to buy it anyway. I really just wanted to try on the different cut to see how it fit, because it is listed on the Nordstrom website and Figleaves as a "plunge balcony", so I thought I'd give it a shot.
Secondly, the cups were all wrong for me. I could barely get my hands in to swoop and scoop, but even without doing it the problems were obvious: too short and closed on top (quadboob), too deep (very wrinkly cups), too narrow (poking at the sides), and too small on top of all that (I generally like a 30FF or 28G in Freyas, I think). Also, the seams went right across my nipples and had started to itch within the 3 minutes I had it on in the fitting room.
This bra went back on the shelf as soon as I could get the bossy sales lady out.
I would also like to amend the fit bullets to say that the center gore was high, but only about as high as the Freya Patsy Padded Half Cup Bra (1223) . This is still too high for me, sadly, but it's really not that bad.
This bra is not owned any more
