Didn't fit

Ok - someone please tell me the lace trim at the top of this bra softens up with washing. Cause if it does, it's going straight to the sink. Right now, I want to claw it off my chest. Since I practically stole it for $14, I reallllly want to make it work. The itchy though, oh the itchiness. This is why unlined bras and I haven't agreed thus far.

Back to the bra.

Pros: Nice firm band. 3 hooks - thank you Curvy Kate! So pretty, the "night" color is a stunning cobalt blue that is very flattering on my tan olive skin, and I can see how the nude and pale pink colors could be quite sexy. And the soft polka dots and silver trim and details are great little extras. Cups don't close in as much as the Bardot does, so there's no quadding. I feel supported and lifted, with a nice natural shape. The rest of the cup minus the lace trim isn't unbearably itchy, although I wish the whole thing was cotton lined.

Cons: My smaller boob doesn't quite fill the cup at either the top or the bottom, so there is some wrinkling on both that you'll probably notice in pictures. The lace feels like it's made of pine needles.

I like it. If I hadn't gotten it so cheap, I wouldn't have ever considered this bra. So really, it's a keeper.

UPDATE: Never softened up. So itchy. Too wide and shallow.

  • lol @ pine needles! I have it in pink. It gets better after washing but its still on the itchy side. Plus I don't like the wide wires. I just got my first unlined Ewa Michalak sm style bra and its just so much better than old CK and Freya unlined bras.

  • I'm gonna have to wash it cause it was a steal and fits really well overall. I need the wide wires lol. But dang, this lace.

    Ok, I washed it last night. I'll have to stitch in a lining or something. I'll to look for something soft that is the same shade of blue next time I'm out shopping. This lace. I can't, I just can't.

  • Well, I am happy to see that a non-molded cup worked for you! I keep looking at Princess for myself but feel like I'm breaking out in mild hives whenever I'm about to pull the trigger. Maybe I'll give it a whirl.
