Didn't fit

Apparently a lot of people have trouble with the fit of this bra. I was desperate for a t-shirt bra for the summer, so I decided to give it a try anyway. The same was said about Cleo Neve Plunge T-shirt Bra (7196) , but that fit my shape okay (even though the gore was too low not to spill out over). This one has a higher gore and is more like a cross between a t-shirt bra and near a half-cup-ish style. 30G is my usual size in Freya and Affinitas (and most others).

The Starlet in 30G was waaaaay too tight on the band. It brought out back fat that I never even knew I had and would have been comfortable thinking that I didn't. However, the cup was a perfect fit. I mean an exact fit without an inch to spare. If I slouch my shoulders a little, there's a smidge of gaping on the smaller breast. But if I have a hormonal day, there will probably be a tad of quad on the larger one. The cups do have a somewhat shallow feel to them and I might have considered going up a size; however, I am short and the coverage of the cups is just shy of too high on the sides for comfort.

When I first put the bra on, I noticed the wrinkling at the bottom of the cups that everyone complains about. There was that odd upside-down "7" cup pointedness, too. So, again being short, I have to tighten the straps a lot to get the wire into my IMF. Once that is done, the wrinkling disappears. I'm rather high-set and would prefer a lower wing that doesn't quite reach so high into my armpits, but it's really not worse than most other bras.

Once adjusted to sit correctly, the shape of the cup is very nice. Smooth, contoured, not pointy and no show through my shirts. I am happy with that. I'm not sure I'd call it a very comfortable bra, but time will tell there.

I re-ordered a 32FF and the band was better and the cup more or less the same. I couldn't wear the 30G without an extender. Even the 32 band is tighter than most 30s I wear. Weird band sizing on this one.

One last thing: I'd recommended not ordering these bras from Amazon. Wherever they are storing them, they are all damaged. I had to send back 3 different ones.

This bra is not owned any more
