TL; DR — this is a comfortable, wireless bra that gives decent lift and nice shaping. I like it a lot!
I was very skeptical about this Evelyn & Bobbie bra. I saw it while I was browsing for bralettes, and I left it in my Breakout Bras cart for, like, a month. It’s a little spendy, and it looked similar to the Knix** wireless bras, which were not a good fit for me when I’d tried them awhile back.
Anyway... according to E&B’s size chart, this Beyond Bra would fit me (34FF-ish UK/ 34H-ish US) in a size Large so I finally decided to try it. I was surprised to put it on and discover that it lifted my breasts. I had been prepared for the possibility that my breasts would pull the bra down/forward, but they were lifted. It doesn’t separate as well as an underwire bra, of course, but I still had two separate boobs, and they were supported.
There are lots of hooks in the back for security and adjustability. The straps are wider in the front where they meet the cup, and they’re a little more narrow in the back with room in the length for adjustments. The cup height and wing height are high enough that everything is contained and looks smooth. The only downside to the height of this bra is that the wide band directly under the bust sometimes rolls up when I sit/bend because I have some squish. It doesn’t really adversely affect the fit or comfort so it’s not annoying enough that I’d want to return the bra, but it’s worth noting. So far the band seems to be holding everything in place. Hopefully it won’t stretch out too quickly, but so far, so good!
The fabric is very soft and smooth, but also supportive. (It’s similar to the Knix fabric feel, if you’ve tried their everyday bras, but more uplifting.) I haven’t tried to remove the removable pads, but I didn’t feel a need to remove them because the bra gives me a natural and comfortable shape with the pads in place. I don’t think the pads affect anything in terms of the lift (they sit in front of the breast), but they provide nice shaping and nipple coverage. All the lift is coming from the bra fabric itself. If you examine the fabric closely, you can see that some parts of it are knit more tightly, creating support on the sides of the cups (the sling) and where the straps meet the back.
I definitely recommend trying this bra if your size falls within their size chart, and you’re looking for a comfortable, wireless option! It fits true to size for me.
**Side note: it’s really irritating that Knix claims to have “the best bras for larger breasts” when their size range stops at an F/G cup in US sizing. I tried to make an H work... but nope. Yet another company that seems to think 38DDD is a “large breast size” but 34H and beyond doesn’t even exist.
