This was my first bra that was close to a good fit.
The boutique didn't have any 28 bands at all, so they put me in what they considered a snug 30.
This bra is incredibly well made in my opinion. At first I thought it was very matronly, since I had been wearing the wrong size for so long and was not entirely used to the wires being where they are supposed to and the gore going where it was supposed to. I was so used to a giant band with narrow cups that didn't fill out correctly, with a hollow under my bust, and was taken aback that this was how a bra was supposed to fit.
I have been wearing this bra consistently for about 3 years. This has been my "go to" daily bra since I couldn't find any retailers that had 28 bands until recently.
I am disappointed that they don't make it anymore, considering it is a very high quality bra. I have gotten 3 years of use out of it and haven't even gotten to the last hooks yet, it still looks new, and the bra doesn't look cheap or old yet even. It is definitely still in rotation for me and one of my "sophisticated" bras.
If they could find it, I would recommend it to a friend.

    Good review. I love Fauve bras. Not only are they beautiful, they're also, as you said, incredibly well made, durable, and comfortable. I'm glad you found the Mia Balcony on your bra journey.

    Thank you!
    And they are. I actually got this on clearance from the boutique, so comparatively to regular price it was a steal. Do you have any recommendations about any more Fauve bras specifically to try?

    Unfortunately my experience with Fauve is all with their half cup bras, padded and unpadded. If the Mia Balcony fit you well, you probably have more projection than I.

    However, from the dozen or more Fauve half cup bras I tried, I'd say chances are good you will find good consistency in fit and sizing if you buy the same size in other Fauve Balcony bras. I only found two or three of their bras that were noticeably different in fit from the others.

    I'd start stalking,,, Since Fauve is now a defunct brand, if you eventually decide to buy duplicates of some Fauve bras, you can then start buying from smaller boutiques whose return policies aren't as forgiving as the larger retailers.
