My shape: round-ish to teardrop, low-set, close-set when supported, even top/bottom fullness, outer full, east/west.
I’d been looking at this bra for a while. Levana Bratique didn’t have a 75DD, so I took a chance on a 75D. It’s a beautiful plunge bra in allover midnight blue lace with slightly lighter blue accents. The color is amazing - almost black, but much prettier! There are matching midnight blue bows in the usual spots. I think my favorite part is that it has crystal charms on the top of the straps as well as the gore. The extra touch of bling is lovely! The straps are fully adjustable stretchy ribbon with loopy edging, which looks nice but makes them difficult to adjust.
I was a little surprised by the quality - it’s not bad, but it just doesn’t feel as nice as my other EM bras. It not uncomfortable, but the materials do feel rougher than I’ve come to expect from EM, and the band, straps, and edges of the cups feel a little scratchy against my skin.
The band is very firm - I can clasp it without a problem, but it’s tight - an 80 band would probably be more comfortable for me in this style. I loosened the straps all the way, and they still felt like they were digging in. The gore tacks and feels fine, but not surprisingly, the cups are too small. They look much shorter on me than intended. Even without cookies, my larger boob is almost spilling out after a full swoop and scoop. With a cookie, there’s no gaping on my smaller side, which is nice.
I’ll be returning this one, but it did teach me a couple things about EM sizing: 1) size up in lace EM bands, and 2) if going with a 75 band in a plunge cut, I definitely need DD and maybe even an E.
