Fits

Fauve Rosa was a completely random purchase from eBay. There wasn't much info on this bra before I ordered it, but I was able to get it for super cheap, so I decided to give it a shot. I currently only have one true strapless bra in my collection, the OnGossamer Beautifully Basic Strapless, but unfortunately that bra is heavily padded. Luckily, Rosa turned out to be a pretty good fit! It is much more beautiful in person than I imagined, and the fit is pretty solid.

Since this is a 30DD, I already expected the band to be a bit loose on me, but this works. The band is firm and slightly wider than normal, with a very wide upper edge elastic, and there are three strips of silicone for grip. In addition, the wings have some boning at the sides for better stability. Despite the fact that the band measures quite big, it feels ok and stays in place, and fits much better than my other Fauve 30DD, the Aurelia. I would definitely prefer it smaller, but I don't feel that it is in danger of slipping down. Due to the silicone, altering the band by hand may end up being tricky, but I might attempt this in the future as the bra gets older.

The smooth, molded cups are actually quite similar to the Freya Wilder Bustier that I also purchased recently. It is a foam cup with no push-up padding, and the shape of the cup is a bit more projected than you would find in a standard US department store brand. The cups are a bit on the wide side, and are also a bit tall, which might be the only critique. The shape is round and slightly closed off at the top as it curves back in. On me, it fits well with no gapping, although I feel that the proportions look a little too tall for my body.

I am very pleased with the quality of this bra, as I think it is well worth a higher pricetag. The overall appearance of the bra is somewhat bridal, but it can easily be worn in a daily setting. I was surprised to see that there was so much detail on it, since the images made it look like a rather plain, un-Fauve-like bra. The cups are smooth, cool microfiber. The outer edge of the cup is trimmed with floral lace. The cradle and band are full lace, and there is a ladderwork detail at the center gore and seam between the boning and the back of the wings that adds a lovely touch. Tiny satin bows adorn the top of the ladderwork, and the center gore has a white and baby blue bow (hence the bridal touch) with a horseshoe diamante charm set in rose gold. The hook closure is trimmed with padded satin ribbon for a very finished look. Straps are medium width textured satin with picot edges, and are fully adjustable as well as convertible with two front and back tabs on each side.

An elegantly-made bra, I am very impressed with this strapless option from Fauve. I think the Rosa collection would suit average shapes that are not overly narrow, conical, or shallow. The slightly closed top might be an issue for those with a lot of upper fullness or very tall roots, but I think this would work nicely on a lot of different shapes.
