Didn't fit

I started off trying a 34HH, because it was available on Amazon with free returns. It seemed good, but the cups were small, so I went ahead and ordered a 34J from Brastop. Welp, it was a bit of a disaster!

Bras I Love and Hate wrote a post about how CK bras tend to lose their shape over the course of the day. The Charm is living up to that for me. When I first put it on, it looked quite good. But when I tightened the straps, suddenly the front of the cup took a nose dive - literally. It hooked straight down giving me what looked like a square boob. Yikes! I tried returning the strap to how it was, but no dice, nothing worked.

The next day I tried it on again, seeing if it would be ok if I started fresh. Nope. But I did make an interesting discovery that miiiight save this bra. The Charm wants my nipples to point down. I can lift the wires into the IMF, but then I have to adjust the nipples down, and the cup stays round. If I push them up, it goes square. Whatever, Charm. But the wire was also kind of digging me in the side, so it may be a tosser.

The reason I wanted it was it is fully sheer mesh, cool for summer with a plum colored embroidery embellishing the top edge of the cups. Nothing too fancy.

Black/Plum colorway
