VERY pleased with this bra.
I don't get slight quadding when I scoop like with my Hopscotch Longline.
That is still one of my top bras, but I think I need a 30F or 28FF in this style.
Speaking of 30vs28.. I think I chose the wrong day to try this.
I was on vacation over the weekend, which inevitably means little sleep and always hungry.
I gained 3lbs, and 1-3 inches almost everywhere. It'll go away in a few days, but right now my ribs are measuring about 30.5" or more as opposed to 29.
But otherwise I love this bra.
The cups are just the right depth and the material is nice.
The wires are, as usual for half cups, too wide. They do not however come up too far, so it doesn't bother me under my arms.
I do want to make a note for sellers and swappers, and I want to bring this up in an adventure later, but please PLEASE wash your items before sending them.
I never had a problem with this until recently, and I've recieved 4 unwashed bras- a combo from ebay, here, and reddit.
It's not a big deal, but just out of consideration for whoever is ending up with your personal items.
I'm sure the majority of us do, but I've gotten 4 in a row, and one a few months ago, so I wanted to bring it up.
I look at it similarly to giving someone unwashed used panties. It's not as gross, but it's still kind of gross, especially when it is visibly dirty and smelly.
I did not receive this from Bratabase, which is why I'm bringing it up in this review since I don't want to make anyone feel awkward or bad. It's ok, just stop for pleases.
Anyway- this bra seems good for shallow, wide rooted boobs. It can work with projected, narrow rooted ladies, but I'd suggest moving up in the cup if that describes you. The wires don't come up far, so it's possible to get away with them, and they're not extremely wide, so it's not a huge problem. This bra does extend 1.5-2" from my actual boob though. If that sort of thing doesn't bother you, go ahead and try this.
I do wish I had gotten a bigger band in any case. I don't normally have an issue with longline bands being too big at all, and find them very supportive.
I'll be giving this a wash and deciding whether or not I can handle the band or want to swap for 30F.
In any case, this is a very pretty, comfortable bra. I'm glad to know going up a cup works.
This bra is not owned any more
