I love it. I know it's a seasonal print, so my girls and I need to know if there is a more "permanent" model name for this one is other prints, or if there's a very similar cut bra that just changes colors every year, etc. It really is great.
It fits just tight enough on the loosest set of hooks. There is NO boning in the sides outside of the cup wire, which hurt so much in my old bras.
The cups are almost just right. I don't fault the bra though. One of mine is just slightly larger. It isn't a whole cup size, going a cup size larger would be too much on both sides. It's not even an all-the-time problem. It's only an issue after a while if I've done quite a bit of moving and some breast tissue shifts out. I'm new to a lot of the technical terms, but I have seen the helpful blog post on full on top vs. full on bottom. I classify as full on top, but at 30, having had 3 children within 4 years, I'm more "full, yet loose" on top. It's not the typical quad boob of the teenage and early twenties days. They wrinkle out instead of pop out, so it isn't terribly noticeable in clothing. So this isn't a big issue with the fit of the bra and an extra cup size up would be too large on the smaller side and likely the larger as well. But when they are in place right, they look round, and young and happy again. I love this bra for that, and it would've been worth full price for that alone.
I was actually a bit scared of non-padded, molded, or lined bras, apprehensive of the shape mine may take, wanting to avoid that 1950s look. I will say now, that the Minnie has changed my mind. It took a couple of wears to get used to, but the shape has grown on me. my boobs are the shape and size of the cup, the cup makes the shape and size of my boobs, and there is no extra. My old bras had a lot of extra cup at the top and by my arms and I do not miss that. They "look" straight ahead of me. They are rounded. The straps are not massive with regards to width. I wore a racer back tank with the tiny (to me) red straps showing and did it happily.
Centered on the chest, rounded, and projected forward, all in an adorable and sexy print. So far, I cannot complain!
