Fits

This bra is hard to review. Partly because I have wanted it for so long and partly because it’s not a great fit, despite the pictures. I’ve held off reviewing it for ages but I really want to get the pictures off my phone. Lol.

So this is one of the bras that I was always told that was narrow and projected like Polish bras. I must have a lemon. It’s 5.5” wide, which is not the end of the world, but I have a little bit of space between the wires and my roots. I could do with a 1/4” narrower. It’s also slipping out of my imf which is unusual. It does not look like it is shallow on me. Something about the fit is just weird.

My big breast fits fine but I’m getting empty space on the small side. I have not tried it with a top on to determine if it’s problematic or not yet, but I probably won’t, given the rest of the issues. Cup height seems ok but maybe a bit tall. But it’s got a bit of a closed edge, I think, so I don’t think I can go down a cup size. While I am comfortable with the loosest hooks, I get a better fit with the middle hooks. I’m not sure if I can get away with the 28 band. I think it’s dependent upon whether or not I am flaring or not.

So while the pictures look amazing, they are lying. I have tried the bra on several times, never removing the tags or putting clothes on overtop. I really love the look of this bra, and want so bad for it to work. I’m not sure if it’s worth trying a 30F in it.

  • Oh man. I’m bummed for you it didn’t work. I can see why you wanted it so badly. It’s gorgeous!! I know you say the pics are deceiving in fit, but the color and pattern looks really good on you. I hope you can find a size that works for you. :)

  • Thanks Happy2BraShop. I’m just not so confused about the fit. I love the colour and print. I want it to work so much. I’m not sure if I would fit a 30F. All the data shows that cup depth would be too small. So as far as I know, this is the right volume. Would a 28G actually be better than the 30FF?

  • Calluna How do you feel the back-band on the 28 would fit? If it runs stretchy and less tru to size, it could be worth a shot since proportions in the actual cup change even though they’re sister sizes and it might be in your favor. If the 28 band runs firm/short then you might risk having the wires distort and get pulled back, basically causing the same issue of wires feeling a tad too wide If it fits too tight. But you could also add an extender if it’s just a tad too short till it stretched out. If your bigger boob is fitting the cup now, sizing down in just the cup might not work. I’ve had this happen where I was literally in between sizes on back-band and in between sizes in a cup. At some point it comes down to how comfortable you feel in it when you’ve decided on a size and if you could live with a minor fit issue if it’s still there. Is it possible to order the other two sizes and choose best out of three?

  • Yeah it’s a stretchy band. But it might be too tight in a 28 still. Theoretically, it should stretch to 29” which is obviously a lot for a 28 band, and is the smallest I’m comfortable with. If I’m flaring, I need closer to 30” even though I’m a 28-28.5” snug.

  • I actually got this as a trade. So I might try other sizes if it’s a good price. The 30Fs look like they’re not even 9” deep. I need 9.5-10” usually, depending on the shape and material.

  • I also have one of this, and just in sister size 32F. It is too big, maybe also a little bit too wide. I guess a 30F can be a good fit for me.
