Used to fit

I've now worn the Ciao Bella all winter as my "sweater bra," and have enjoyed this style thoroughly. Since it comes in so many lovely colors and the price is affordable, I've picked up another one, and am excited to add more to my collection!

I've been wearing this size when I measure 28DD/30D and now at 28E/30DD, and I'm pleased that the bra still fits me despite an increase in cup size. The band seems pretty solid and hasn't stretched out due to wear, and I've found it to be TTS though not all B. Tempt'd bras are TTS in the band. I originally had concerns about the straps since they are only partially adjustable and I have them shortened all the way, but so far they haven't been a problem either. The twinned satin portion of the strap is very rigid and has no stretch, so overall the straps have not stretched out at all. Shortening the straps is a fairly simple procedure, but this really should be designed with more flexibility in the adjustable length.

The only flaws I see in this bra are due to the materials. As noted in my previous version of this review, the lace can snag rather easily. Because the style is a lace overlay over foam cups and the foam cups have a center seam, it doesn't give a totally smooth look under clothing. This is why I am only wearing it under thicker items like sweaters and do not wear it under lightweight tees. There has also been a lot of inconsistencies in sewing and some bras give an odd or pointy lumpy appearance due to the sewing. I'd recommend ordering from a source that accepts returns so you can try multiples and not get stuck with a badly sewn bra.

Overall, a great bra that suits me and is comfortable and easy to wear. It worked for me at my smaller size with more of a FOB/shallow shape, and it works for me now with a fuller, more rounded shape. The top of the bra is open enough not to cut into my roots but doesn't cause any gapping. The underwires for me are comfortable and never dig into my bony ribs, which is a problem I have often when it comes to properly fitting bands. So glad I finally gave this bra a try, and glad that I tried multiple sizes (30D and 30DD) in order to get the right fit!

Band is ok, but cups are now too shallow and short. Major overflow at the top of the cup.

Underwire length:
Is too short on the side, boobs escape
Top of the cup:
Cuts into breast tissue (quad boob effect)

Band feels ok, cups fully enclose the breasts and fit much better than 30D.
