Used to fit

I was actually quite surprised with this bra. I bought this off Ebay used and when I opened it up i thought there was no way my boobs were fitting in this. It looked small for a 28FF. It is a bit tight, esp for being used, but its actually a pretty nice fit. After trying my CK Gia in a 28G, i wasn't really sure if this would work or not. The Princess gives a much nicer shape under clothes, not too pointy but nothing too round, very natural. My Gia is pointy boobs all the way and the top lacy part of the cup wrinkles. It doesn't seem to do that with the Princess. But it does show thru on light shirts, the little dots and the bows are visible. But i feel like my Gia sort of pushes everything front and center so there is zero side boob. The Princess has a little bit more east west projection and not as much lift as the Gia, for me. But it still feels very supportive. One of my fav things about CK is that they use 3, instead of just 2, hooks and eyes on the back of the band for larger cups. I wish ALL brands did this, or at least made it an option, because for me, it seems to make such a difference in the overall support.

The gore isn't too high for me which is unusual with my close-set boobs. But it did start to dig in my sternum pretty quickly and left a nasty red indentation when i took the bra off only after about 30 minutes. I still marked this as a fit in the system since this was my only real complaint. The straps are so pretty but the decorative flower design doesn't allow them to be fully adjustable. But it's not really a problem unless you were to tighten them to the max, which doesn't seem too practical anyway. Lol. When i first put the bra on the straps were tightened all the way. But I don't know why I thought that would work honestly (too lazy to adjust them i guess, haha) and it gave me massive quad boob. So i loosened them completely and the bra fit perfectly after that https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />

Overall, this is a pretty bra. I'm not as crazy about the shape it gives without clothing as I am with it under a shirt, if that makes any sense. It's actually the complete opposite of my Gia. With the Gia, I LOVE the look and shape it gives...until i put on a shirt. Weird. I think the Princess looks better in my pics on me than it does in person. It's not a bra I would spend big bucks on, but it seems like it could be a great "summer" bra, nice and light.
