Zara is a bralette, made of stretchy lace. The sizing is more like in underwire bras which is very nice, cup size and band size separately! I usually wear 28F / 28FF in underwire bras, or 30E / 30F if the band is tight. The customer service from Bravissimo adviced me to get Zara in 28E-F and the fit is spot on. Cups don´t cut in, band is perfectly supportive, cups stretch slightly and the shape is very good - not too pointy or droopy. The band rolls up on me though. Beware that straps are NOT adjustable at all, so it is a hit or miss. For me it was perfect.

So I like the Zara bralette very much! What I don´t like is the cut of the matching shorts. I don´t know why, but at the website there is always only a front photo of matching bottoms - I would definitely need a backside photo as well! I thought the "short" cut would cover my buttocks but it doesn´t. The cut in the back is like in brasilian briefs which I don´t like - I might cut up the shorts and use the lace parts and sew something more comfortable myself. Size M in true to size in my opinion though.

    Welcome to the Zara club!! :D I don't like the matching pants too. While I love brazilians these are uncomfortable and hardly ever wear them. I foung better ones in Tesco to match my black and lilac bralettes (and sooo much more cheaper)

    I really like the look of this bralette. It looks good on you. However, the straps not being adjustable would be a deal breaker for me since I'm so low set/tall. Too bad because it looks comfortable.

    Is this the new Cornflower colourway? I didn't like it on the website, as it looked like a washed out blue, but on your picture it looks like a lovely shade of grey. There are mixed reviews about sizing up or sizing down in this. I might end up ordering two sizes.

    Yes, it is the cornflower blue. I was afraid it would be too blue to my taste, but it has this greyish tint. I think the colour is seen best in the photos where I´m wearing the bra. The ones with only the bra look too gray - it is not that grey at all in reality.

    I was also confused by reviews and asked Bravissimo about sizing advice. They told me that it runs small and is not made in my size and discouraged me to try it. (I'm a 30JJ/32J)

    I love the color. It looks the same as on my Lacey bra it's also called cornflower blue.

  • ^^
    That´s too bad :( But the Zara is available in HH-J cups. If the cups in bigger sizes are the same, then maybe 32HH-J could fit you. I guess you´ll find out by only trying it.

    I actually googled "cornflower blue" because English is not my native language and I so hate pale blue colour. I am very pleased with Zara´s colour :)

    I wish I can trace out the pattern in this bralette, or else I have to wait till it is old enough to retire - and then hack it.

  • Maybe I still risk it one day... but I'm still building my everyday staple collection after my weight loss. First have to get the basics. Although Zara is a good basic too. I was surprised they talked me out of it, I thought more likely they try to make a sale. I'm not sure if I can trust them since they gave me false information about other bras too. I mean it's obvious Zara comes up to J cup but they said it does not come in HH.

  • Wow I just read again what you wrote. They told you to size down from F/FF to E/F?! Interesting.

    @Fairy89 Thanks! I've been waiting for a new colourway forever. I already have a black bralette. The neon orange was sold out in my size and I was afraid of the white not staying white for a long time.

    ^^ Yes they told me to size down! Note: both sizes were available, 28E-F and 28FF-G. They told me the fabric stretches and the person who wrote to me said she also wears 28F / 28FF in other bras and Zara fits her in 28E-F.
