This bra is a swap from Sonya. I’ve always loved Ingrid with her soft autumn colours and delicate design. I remember seeing it reviewed in the Dreams and Underthings blog. It’s one of the bras that’s been on my mind for at least a year. When I borrowed the 30G (65HH) Jade Plunge from Sonya, it was a great help to see the fit. The things that bothered me most about the Jade were the tall cups and wide straps. This Ingrid was supposed to be altered with straps moved in, reduced cups, increased depth at the wire so I was certainly interested in trying it, despite her saying that she was pretty sure that the cups were not reduced.
So I sent her my 65G S Mojito because, as much as I loved the colour and look on me, I hated having to wear with cookies for the cups to fit other than a few days around my period as it created more shallowness when I need depth at the wire. I think it’s a good trade. The mojito fits her better than me, and this one fits me pretty well. I feel like I might have a little more room in the cups for swelling, but it’s not obvious that it’s slightly too big in the cups because of the way that they sit on my tissue. I feel like my nipples sit a tiny bit lower than the apex of the bra. I can concur that the cups are still pretty tall and don’t appear to have been reduced. Straps do appear to be in a little bit and fit a bit better, but I think it’s another armpit eater. Depth at the wire seems good, and feedback from a friend that has had Ingrid before is that it looks like it’s got the extra depth alteration completed. I think that the cups would be perfect if they really were reduced.
I noticed that it is a 3 hook back, which must start at J cups and up. It’s a little bit difficult, depending on how much trouble my hypermobile joints want to give me. Some days it’s quite easy and a struggle at times still. The straps are a ribbed texture...quite thick. Not the easiest to adjust, but they will stay put. Band seems comfortable with my 28”-28.5” under bust.
Overall, it’s a pretty good bra. It would be ideal with reduced cups, but for now, I think I can manage, and this tells me that a 65J with reduced cups and straps moved in should be a winning combination. My soft tissue is contained, and the added immediate depth gives my pendulous tissue the space at the wire to keep the wires in my imf. Being center full, I’m always going to get more spilling in the middle, but it’s not bad here. Wires are pretty narrow. Cups are soft, though not as soft or light in comparison with Ewa’s PLs.
I’m glad to have a chance to try this bra at long last.
