Didn't fit

I had a hard time figuring out what didn't quite fit about this bra until I started taking photos. I've pointed at the empty space below & beside the cups. The wire is nowhere near my IMF at all. Not enough projection either.

Comfort-wise this bra isn't nearly as bad as it looks. The band lays mostly flat all the way around and feels surprisingly wearable for a 30. (I wear 28, but I think Clara only comes in 30+)

Clara has a wide-feeling gore. It's quite close at the top (so it fits my close-set boobs) but quickly widens and separates. The gore isn't uncomfortable, but I think the end result is a little...... splayed.

But only a little. If I was a true 30, I think the shape would be fine. The side support panels work hard to keep everything forward.

I have tried a lot of Claras because I really like how the Clara style feels & looks on. I find the wide band sits comfortably and the gore also sits fairly smoothly. The lace is too cute and I don't find it scratchy. I like that they provide a side-support panel and feel this adds to the comfort. It's really too bad the wires are so far off where I'd like them......... but if I found a Clara that was comfortable enough to wear anyways, I'd keep it. This 30FF wasn't quite right but the larger 30G ended up being keepable. I'd not buy this bra full price but older colors can be had for < $40 (nude, charcoal).

    I have a friend who takes photos of every clothing item she tries on and then looks through them before deciding to purchase. I decided to try it with bras and I'm not sure why but it helps me diagnose fit issues and see so much more detail. I do it with every bra now. It's so much easier to see wrinkling at the bottom of cups.
