In the spring of 2019, I decided to give the Georgia a try. I really loved the mint Alana I purchased a few years earlier and I feel the same with this one. Comfort and support are quite good with very little quadding on either side. The cup material is a little thin, an observation that a fellow bratabaser also made.in her review so I generally wear the Georgia when I know I will have an extra layer or two. I prefer the Alana and Selina Lace over the Georgia but all 3 easily surpass anything else out there for me.
I likely wore this Georgia fewer than 5 times over the first year. The material is certainly on the thin side and that made me think that it would lose support the more I wore it. However, over the past 2 months, I find myself wearing this more and more and perhaps more now than any of my other bras. I have been wearing fabric nipple pads whenever my bra does not hide them well and that has given me some confidence, especially on hot summer days. The shape I am getting now is a little less rounder and not so high and I end up feeling more comfortable. Plus, this mint colorway is without a doubt my favorite.
I recently noticed that my white Selina had a band whose wings were made of 2 materials, each of different levels of softness that I had never noticed before in any bra I have owned. This Georgia has 2 materials in the wings as well but unlike my white Selina, the inside and outside layers seem to be the same materials Less surprisingly, the cups are comprised of 2 materials and they also seem to be of the same fabric.
I am so disappointed. Yesterday, after an above average day of stress, I got home and quickly undid this bra but was in such a rush and a bit distracted that I forced the clasps a bit too hard and heard and felt a thread (or two) snap. OH NO!!! I took the straps off and slowly examined the clasps to see if I had damaged them - I did (sob sob).I had pulled two of the eyelets out of position and they will need some repair. I did the same thing with one eyelet to my Bravissimo Erin and although my re-stitching of the Erin seems ok, it is visually annoying. Lesson learned.
I thought it would be interesting to compare my original measurement data for this bra to what they are today.
.......................................... original / current / difference
band length un-stretched..... 35.50 / 33.00 / (2.50)
band length stretched........... 41.00 / 39.50 / (1.50)
cup depth.............................. 17.75 / 18.00 / 0.25
cup height............................. 12.75 / 15.00 / 2.25
The (2.50) inch change seems unusual, perhaps my original measurements were wrong. Shrinkage from washing might cause some difference but not to this extent.
The (1.50) inch change in stretched band length is also weird, see above
The 0.25 inch increase in cup depth is possible
The 2.25 increase in cup height also looks wrong
The results of this re-measure are quite puzzling. I tend to buy and measure multiple bras so I may have mixed up some of these measurements.
Soon after the above measurements were taken, I stopped wearing this Georgia. I was worried about damaging it further but also because I had splurged on the following new bras: Annie and Gemma in 38 & 40 bands, Satine and the Jenna both in the 40 band. I wore this for the first time in over 4 months on Monday and I have to admit that this Georgia has been so comfortable and supportive that I am seriously considering wearing it for a 3rd day in a row, without a wash in between...eewwwww!
