Didn't fit

This is a beautiful, sturdy bra, but I really had to wrestle it on. It was clear more or less from the beginning that it wouldn't work out, but I wanted to try the 34HH cups to see if that was a closer fit for me than the 34GG - Fantasie » Belle Full Cup Bra (6001) from before. But it's a clear shape mismatch. It gave a really nice rounded, almost minimizing effect, without pushing them down or under my arms, and it didn't hike them up uncomfortably high on my chest (like balcony bras tend to). Honestly, this is listed as a full coverage bra, but it fit me almost like I imagine a balcony bra is supposed to fit. There was significant jiggle (and quad-boob) up top, but no real bounce, and they absolutely stayed put when I bent over. I didn't come anywhere close to falling out of this bra even with the spillage. So that was really nice. But a massive amount of boob was showing on top, so much so that I forgot this wasn't supposed to be a balcony bra and instead was supposed to encompass much more as a full coverage bra. But the depth was the problem. The cups were way too shallow, so there was nowhere for my boobs to go, and because the cups were especially shallow at the wire, I can't be sure, but I suspect I might not have been totally filling the bottom of the cup. It looked fine and I couldn't necessarily see any extra fabric or detect any when I tried to feel around, but I strongly suspect that there was a bit of room underneath, considering just how little projection there is at the bottom.

The very hard underwires dug in and hurt my ribs, and they wanted to keep migrating down my rib cage past my IMF. The band ran pretty small and inflexible. The straps felt okay, but I loosened them all the way before I put it on and I didn't even try to adjust them because I realized that the fit was all wrong.

You can see in the pictures that most of the room in the cup is all lower, and how little there is up top. That's why my boobs just wanted to hang out up top balcony-style in this thing. They're very full on top, with a lot of projection. It was never going to work with such a shallow bra with so much lower room. So the center gore was about an inch away from my chest and the underwire surrounding it was pushed away, too. Just too shallow. The gore might have been too wide for my close-set boobs, too.

I actually really liked the shape I got in this, and the uplift was good but not so high that it was overwhelming, so I'm sad that it didn't fit. It was interesting that there was so much jiggle up top but my breasts were at no point in danger of escaping, even when I leaned over at 90 degrees and really tested it. I'd really like to achieve this same shape, but with more breast tissue enclosed up top. For diagnostic purposes, I put on a bra extender and tried it on a bunch of different hooks, since it was so uncomfortably tight. Any looser and the band lost all support. However, it did become clear that the cups were a little too wide for me and, yes, too shallow, as with the band slightly looser, the cups gapped slightly at the sides and the top still didn't fit.

But the quality seems good and the band is nice and stiff. I really think someone with bottom full, wider breasts would be very comfortable and secure in this bra. It's a beautiful shape--just not mine.

Fit information

On Jan 2021

I really had to wrestle this bra on. It was clearly the wrong shape for me. The cups felt fine on the sides, but they were clearly too shallow, so it fit me like a too-small balcony bra and I'm sure there was some room at the sides even though it felt alright. The wires hurt my ribs and the wide center gore couldn't lay anywhere near flat; the wires themselves were pushed away.

Center gore placement:
Doesn't lie flat against sternum
Bottom of the cup:
Can't quite fill it
Top of the cup:
Cuts into breast tissue (quad boob effect)
Cups separation:
Too separate for my boobs
Band fit:
I can fasten it, but it feels too tight
Center gore comfort:
Underwires dig into sternum, because they are too low

This bra didn't fit her, but these did
