A workhorse of a bra!

* Stretch satin microfiber outside cups. Plain stretch microfiber inside cups. Thin layer foam bonded to inside, just enough for coverage. The cups have just enough stretch to conform to your shape. Great rounded shape without looking like bowling balls!
* Very firm wires. Don't flex much at all! Great support! No need to readjust during the day.
* Gore is nice and low. Stays out of the way of center closeness. The bottom width of the gore matches my IMF perfectly" alt=":)" />)) Very comfortable, I forget it's there.
* Limited stretch band. Beautiful lace outside, sheer mesh inside. Has stitched "boning" (fabric only) under the arms. Exposed elastic top and bottom of band, but flocked and soft. Ballet back. Great support!
* Flocked straps are limited stretch. More than 5/8" wide but less than 3/4".
* Overall design of the bra suits a V-shaped torso so much better than most.

I have many of these bras, in many colors, for many years. All very consistent in sizing. And they don't stretch out with time!
There's only two things to say about their wearability. #1: The fabric in the cups do tend to take on deodorant stains more than other bras I've had. (But I've had good success with Shout Advanced Grease Busting aerosol spray). #2: The wire casing and elastic will pill up from friction, probably because of the flocking.

  • Hi! I’m considering getting this bra. Would you say this is better for someone who is FOT? I’m a 32F (UK) which works great for unlined lace bras but have found that for molded bras (only tried one brand to be fair), I had to take 30F and add an extender. I’m FOB, even fullness on top but don’t do well with bras that require FOT. So I’m wondering what size to get. Are you also one cup or band size down for unlined lace bras?

    Also does the seam on the top of the cup show through t-shirts? And are the cups very close to the armpit area/ tail of Spence?

  • I would say, in an ideal world, someone with self-supporting even fullness would get the absolute best fit with the Lace Affair. But it works for me because I am somewhat FoT with settled tissue, so it more or less behaves as if I'm FoB.
    I don't think you'd see much of the seam along the cup edge... it's barely noticeable on me (certainly a lot less noticeable than a 3-part seamed cup). And the outer cups don't bother my Tail of Spence; I think it's a combination of the cups being soft and flexible, the wires are not rigid, and the band is supportive and not too tall.

    As for unlined or lace bras, I really only have one of each because they generally bother my skin (lots of allergies!). But in my unlined bra I could have gone up in the cup and with the lace bra I should have gone down in the band. So the size really depends on the particular bra.
    I hope this helps! :)

  • Thanks so much! :) does this bra have any push up effect at all?

  • You could say there is a pushup effect because it gives nice lift, but there's no push-up padding whatsoever. It's thin (about 1/8") foam throughout. The inside fabric is bonded to the foam and the outer cups are covered with stretch microfiber low-luster satin.
