Used to fit

Purchased in Oct 2015, this Alana in teal is still comfortable and supportive although perhaps a little less so now in 2020. I purchased a white Alana on the same order and the white seems to be just a little bit less supportive, especially in the cup where I have a bit of sagginess compared to the teal. To be fair to the white, I wore this teal maybe 6 times a year and the white maybe 6 times a month.
If you don't mind a tendency to a cakes on a plate look, the Alana may become a staple for you as it is for me. Through the course of time, I have noticed that my Alana's tend to initially have the cakes on a plate look but will soften and become a rounder shape with frequent use. This teal Alana seems to mask my nipples a little better than other colors but I still try to wear layers of clothing.
Before I became aware of Bravissimo and the Alana, I was stuck with matronly fullcup bras with very tall wings that quite often didn't breathe well, especially in the summer. With the Alana, my excessive summer boob sweat seems like a distant memory.
Bravissimo appears to have altered the design and materials of their newer Alana colorways. My most recent Alana purchase has newer straps that tend to roll up and dig in so I prefer older versions such as this teal.

Center gore is not a problem. The straps are close to being an issue as they may start falling off of my shoulder.
