Didn't fit

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.
Sad.
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

    Making sure the bra is totally dry before sending it is also important or else it starts to smell moldy.

    uniteacher I did that once with a skirt. I try to ship things as soon as I can, but that time I was apparently in too much of a rush. It took a week to get there and she said it smelled like a dirty basement. I felt so bad! I refunded her and now I wait longer to pack up. I'd rather be a slow shipper than have that happen again.

    Queequeg0925 I love the just flew in, it's a pretty color and the birds are a nice pattern without being juvenile.

    If you decide to list it, I have a 30F that i would love to swap!

  • uniteacher jlcl119 Oh gosh, yes! I accidentally did that once also, but didn't receive any bad feedback.
    At the time, I was more worried about shipping late, but I felt so bad after thinking about it
    :(

    jlcl119 I feel the same :)
    I was a little concerned that I'd dislike the print, but I find it so much prettier in person, and I totally agree about the birds!

  • immodestmouse Yay! That makes me super happy :D
    I'll let you know for sure by Friday, if that's ok?

    I'd like the smaller band, and I did temporarily go up an inch or two, but just having it on for 10 minutes to take pictures today reeeally hurt my back, so right now I'm leaning more towards swapping and 30F sounds perfect :)

  • Yeah that's fine! It only stretches to exactly 30", so it wouldn't be too big of a jump, but just a little bit more room than the 28 :)

  • immodestmouse that's great :) I will let you know for sure then ^_^

    My goodness, this is a really pretty bra! I love the purple, it's my favorite color, howwww I don't have any purple bras yet is beyond me. Regardless, really stunning! I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for a 28G lurking somewhere.

    Wanabee Yes!!! :D I finally got to the beach and Smithsonian, it was super fun! :)

  • lcl0706 I know! Purple is my favorite too, closely followed by cerulean and green, and I JUST got this and a purple Natori the day before. I'm so happy to finally have some! Now if I can snag a Cleo Lucy 30E in purple I'll be set :P

    Good luck! I'll keep an eye out for you also :) I browse /r/ABTF and ebay just about every day haha
