My shape is teardrop, with breast tissue spread out over my ribcage and all the features (and problems) shallow breasts have - tall roots to within two fingerwidths of my collarbone, wide roots wrapping around my ribcage, and firm unyielding tissue - with a lot more projection, as well as close-set and almost touching in the middle. The tail of my breast root is shaped like the Nike symbol and stretches back past my armpit.

This review is for the Willow colorway.

Shimmery! That is the best word for this bra. It is one of most gorgeous bras I have ever owned and is on par with my 30F - Fauve » Marla Padded Half Cup Bra (0291) in terms of sparkle. My potato camera does not capture the color or the effect with any justice. The combination of shimmery sage green satin and ivory lace, not to mention the embellished straps and beaded bow details at the base of the straps and the center gore, makes me feel like I'm wearing a priceless antique! I almost never get matching knickers, but now I absolutely cannot wait to get them!

The gore tacks and is comfy! Hooray! This is a constant problem for me, and always a big IF when I order a bra online. However, since I am US-based and Fauve is now out of business, I didn't really have a choice. The gore on my 30F - Fauve » Maya Padded Half Cup (0271) was one that just didn't work out, for instance, but this time it was my birthday, and I have been eyeing this one for a long, long time because of its 30s look, so I took a chance and got lucky!

I fill out the bottom of the cup on this one! Hooray! Fauve half-cups are more forgiving on me than most, and this one is even better than the rest of the ones I have.

The photos make it seem like the top of the cup wrinkles (like it's gaping), but it is much less than it appears. That is to say, all my half-cups gape on me a little, especially if I slouch, but in this case, there is a crease in the fabric on the left cup from its postal journey, and the super shiny satin exaggerates and highlights the smallest of anomalies in the cup fit.

The wires are aaaaalmost wide enough. Still too steep of a curve, but since it's comfy and I have yet to find a bra that can truly accommodate the shape of my roots, I don't mind. I do like that there seems to be a little room on the sides of the cup, though, since I have a lot of side boob and I definitely fill it out!

The straps are lovely. Lots of ladies don't like embellished straps because they're harder to move the sliders on, but I like them too much and I will put up with it so that I can wear this delicious bra. They are wide and comfy and easily extend long enough for me without worrying about having to take them in someday.

The band is perfect. I am amazed because the back panels are powermesh, and powermesh always bulges even when you have the right size because of the difference in stretchiness between it and the elastic at the edges, but this one really doesn't. It's firm but great on the loosest hook, and I think it will last a long time.

On the subject of how stinkin' pretty it is, this is the bra, out of the dozens that I have owned, that finally inspired my fiance to mention that he doesn't think it's fair for me to keep buying such lovely things when no one else gets to see and appreciate them, so I guess the Coco is going to be paraded around the house a bit!

My only complaint is that sage green is not the best color on me. It's a silly thing, considering I knew that and bought the bra anyway, but it means I want the pearl pink colorway about ten times more now, and it is so much harder to find. Plus, can you blame me for wanting to look as nice in it as it looks by itself? Excuse me while I go ogle it some more.

Fit information

On Jul 2015 It fit her!

Comfortable, even though wires are slightly too narrow and too steeply curved for my breast root, but not a problem! Gapes at the top when I slouch like all my half cups.
