Used to fit

I just received this bra so I might update it in a few weeks to let you know my final review.

I purchased the Jolie balcony in 30J after I previously ordered a 32HH Freya bra (my usual "Cleo size") but I found the band too large so I had to send it back.
The band on this bra is about the right size, but it's a bit tight so I will have to get an extender to give me an extra row and some room to breath. I hope the band stretches out a bit in the future.
I hesitated between the HH and the J cups, being a 32HH going down a band size, but I don't regret getting the J cups because it fits like it should.

The center gore lies flat against my chest although I have the constant feeling it doesn't when I look at it. The top of the wires in the center are a little bent outwards that's why I have this feeling.

The straps are large, which I liked in the previous Freya bra I bought (the one I sent back) but with this one, they have a tendency to slip from my narrow shoulders.

I love that there are 3 hooks instead of only 2. There is also a side support in the form of a flexible vertical straight wire on each "wing" of the band.

The fabric is soft and airy but not really see-through on my skin, which I like.

I didn't have the choice of colors and received the "chili" color which is a very bright red, almost pink color. I thought I would dislike it because red isn't a color I'm comfortable with and I don't think it goes well with my complexion, but I was surprised to be pleased by the "chili" color !
There are cute little red roses with navy "bows" between the cups and on the end of the straps.
The cups are made from a cobweb-like fabric, with a pattern of simple flowers. I don't like the flower pattern much, it looks like it has been drawn by a 5-year-old... It doesn't go well with the overall adult silhouette of the bra, in my opinion. It is not very obvious when you wear it though.

This bra gives my breasts a rather natural shape, which I'm not used to with the brand Cleo I usually buy (which gives me the best rounded shape), but I don't think I look bad in this bra so that's ok.

On first try, I thought this bra wasn't as comfortable as my Cleo ones, especially around the wires, but I hope that will change once it becomes nicely worn in.

So in conclusion, I have mixed feelings about this bra, but the overall feeling makes that I am keeping it and hope for the best between me and this Jolie piece of underwear" alt=";)" />
