This is a beautiful bra for petite full bust and plus folks. At first, I believed this bra didn’t fit. The flexible wires pulled too wide (although these snap back into shape unlike the majority of Elomi wires). This led to slight cutting in/ flattening and the gore twisting. However, once I replaced the wires with firm Panache wires these problems went away for the most part (the gore still slightly twists, likely because the gore hits me higher than most of my bras and at the top my breast tissue is firm and touches). The wires are blessedly short at the sides, allowing my arms to move without hitting the wire and causing range of motion issues. The straps, thick stretch smooth elastic, are also set more narrowly so they don’t slip off. They are longer to accommodate a racer back hook.
The cup is all nonstretch and is lined in beige cup lining under the lace. There is slight elastic on the edge but very slight. The fabric is all very lightweight and breathable. It’s honestly so nice to wear on hot days- much cooler due to the cut out gore, lightweight fabrics, and open weave mesh band. The deco charm in the center is gorgeous and unusual.
With the new wires the shape is natural but softer. The lace does shoe under some shirts but this is my only black bra so I will take it.
With the Panache wires I wore this bra all day and didn’t feel the need to take it off. No shoulder or back pain, less sweating. The perfect summer bra for plus petite full figures.
