This review is for the black colorway.

This is another Fauve vertical seamed half-cup, which always suit me pretty well. It's very cute with the pink satin-stitched dots around the edges of the cups and the no-show trim on the band. I found it on closeout at Her Room, and it was the last one left! My size is never the last one left at a fantastic price like $40 with free shipping, and my only other black bra has stretched and is yet to be altered, so even though I probably shouldn't have, I bought it anyway.

As always, the shape is great on me. I am pleased to find that the 30F fits me well, so it looks like I dropped a cup size from last year, although I hadn't noticed in my other bras. It gaps a little across the top, but my tops hold the extra fabric against my boobs and it isn't noticeable, and I think sizing down a cup would cost me a lot of the good fit everywhere else.

No wrinkling at the base of the cup, plus a lovely rounded shape thanks to the vertical seams, and I think this might be another great one like my 30F - Fauve » Marla Padded Half Cup Bra (0291) . The band lays flat and is level across the back, lovely and tight on the loosest hook. The tag and some of the edges of the elastic under the arms are a little irritating (not exactly itchy), but I haven't washed it yet and I think it's just because it's new. The straps are wide, too wide for spaghetti-straps, but also comfy and will stay put.

My one complaint has to be the center gore/bridge, but this is the same ol' song I have always sung. I can't quite tell if the wires end too high or too low, because they poke either way. It's similar to the way the 30F - Fauve » Maya Padded Half Cup (0271) fit on me, but milder. I've tried to bend them out a little, but I may have to take some pliers to them (gently, of course!).

Gaping at top of cup, but clothes disguise the gap. Underwires are a little diggy.

Center gore comfort:
Underwires dig into sternum, because they are too low
Top of the cup:
Wrinkles, can't quite fill it
