Used to fit
I bought this bra on a whim a few days ago, because it was just THAT pretty. Charlotte is always a good-looking bra - I really love the retro styling - but I think the wine purple/black colorway is my favorite version so far. It's just so sumptuous looking - you wouldn't be surprised to see this on a pin-up model of some sort.
Happily, in addition to looking beautiful, it feels beautiful as well! This is the first time I've chosen the padded contour bra version of Charlotte instead of the balconet. I was surprised at how well it mapped the shape of my breast. It's not too tall - as many bras are on me - and the apex is situated nicely. I'm not really sure if there's enough room at the bottom for my immediate projection; I have fairly malleable breasts, so I won't know until a few wears from now. That's generally how long it takes to make a crease at the bottom of the cup.
The wires are still a touch too wide, still, but closer than almost everything else I've tried thus far. This bra goes pretty high up the sides, but it's still pretty comfortable. The band is a little firm, like all Parfait bras; however, I've always liked that. I guess the only bad thing about this bra is that it is HOT. It's made of fairly thick foam, so I wouldn't want to wear this bra for a day wandering the city - this is definitely an office bra.
However, aside from that it's really nice! I would love to buy the same bra this spring in the newest colorway.
