Didn't fit

This bra makes me so, so sad.
Let me begin by saying that it is exquisite. Probably one of the most beautiful bras I've tried on, ever. Ivory lace over a rich chocolate brown, an ever so slight long-line lower edge with an almost bandeau style shape. It checks all. the. boxes.

Except, unfortunately, the most important one: fit. To start with, the band runs EXTREMELY small, especially for stretchy Claudette bands. I almost wondered if there was a labelling error, because holy cats, I could barely fasten it around me. And when I did, there were several additional fit issues with the cups: slight quad-boobing, but also creasing at the lower portion of the cups, and the gore wouldn't tack. The last two issues largely stem from the fact that the lower portion of the cup is very shallow and take on a shape very unlike my actual boobs. Whereas the bottom portion of my breasts are very spherical and basically stick out perpendicularly from my ribcage, the cups on this bra are more like a 45 degree angle outward to the apex. Finally, since the band is soooo tight and the wires are rather malleable, the cups end up stretching width-wise and losing depth. All in all, the whole bra is simply too small all around, in addition to being at great odds with my shape. And, of course, the straps are too far apart and molest my armpits while falling off my shoulders. C'est la vie.

I would recommend this to someone with a much shallower shape, with very little lower fullness, and broader shoulders. And incredible taste. This bra is goddamn beautiful, and it's such a shame it doesn't fit.

This bra is not owned any more

  • Thanks for posting a review, pictures, and measurements! I was just thinking of buying it and now I know it's sadly incompatible despite how pretty it is.
