    Used to fit

    I finally found a beige, smooth, molded, seamless t-shirt bra.

    I can't believe I am getting a good shape from a partial band bra. Even though I quad a bit, it doesn't show under thin clingy tops. so I'm happy. I normally wear 30 bands, but this 32 band is tight enough on me. It is tight enough to push my firm breasts around, in this case to the front and center. It is not, however, as tight as a Cleo 30 band.

    If Ewa Michalak were making a t-shirt bra, I'd probably already have one of hers, if it were a plunge with low coverage ... cups. The Addiction seamless plunge has pretty low cups, though, just like the Addiction full cup bra I also reviewed.

    I found this line, Addiction Lingerie, in the Addiction boutique in San Francisco. I had never heard of this brand.

    The straps are partially adjustable. Luckily they go short enough for me, even though I'm petite. The straps are thick and soft if institutional looking. On the lower third outside of the cup is a very thin layer of mesh, which barely shows under a really tight top.

    The wires go high under my arms and there is side boning. I feel that this bra deals quite firmly with my side tissue. It's a pretty cleavagey bra, even for my super firm tissue.

    On the 32F size, it has 3 rows of hooks and eyes. The rows are really close together, compared to most brand's 3x3 rows. It's not sexy or pretty, but boy do I need this bra.

    It has removable pads, which are plastic packets half filled with water. I've never seen pads like that! If I leave the pads in, I quad boob severely.

    This is kind of a dark beige color with a not particularly attractive greenish gray cast. It will however function as a nude bra for me.

    The manufacturer's product photos show the model NOT wearing the wires in her inframammary fold. This is NOT how I wear it. My fit checklist and my review are of the bra properly adjusted and after scooping and swooping.

      I'll be interested in pictures, because a t-shirt bra is one of the few that I'm seriously lacking. Thanks for the heads up!

      I've been eyeing this bra on Journelle's site for a while, thanks for the review! It looks like it's miles too wide in the cup for me, oh well.

      Lynn, I'll get pictures up quickly. It took me years to find a workable t-shirt bra, so I know how you feel.

      Saphiro, your comment about wire width prompted me to remeasure. When worn, the Addiction bra places the wires under my arms in about the same spot my five or so EM 3Ds do. How was its width measurement so different from the Ewa Michalaks'? The latter brand is not known for super wide wires, even in my size range.

      I confirmed my Ewa Michalak 3D cups hew closely to 5.25" in width, but the Addiction cups are actually 5.875" wide. My initial width measurement was 6.3" or perhaps 6.25" if Bratabase rounded up.

      When I initially measured the new bra, I was in a dark room. I probably shouldn't have been in such a rush to get the measurements up, but there were so few Addiction entries and none of this model, I wanted anyone sharing my frustrations in the t-shirt bra search to have this resource. I've retaken all the measurements. The bra isn't as stretchy as I thought it was, so it is indeed a tight 32 band. The cup depth is actually 9" instead of my initial 8.5" if you go for the absolute deepest part, which is close to the upper edge of the cups. The other measurements were pretty much on target. I apologize for the data errors.

      If 5.875" is still too wide a cup for you, you could take in the gore, which is merely a strip of elastic fabric. You could narrow it by almost half an inch. This would bring the wires, where they fall under your arms, closer toward the front of your body. I do not recommend this alteration if you need a wider gore or if you don't want to escalate your cleavage. This alteration would also make the neckline more covered up, so you'd be exposing less boob. This might defeat the purpose of a plunge bra if you were wearing a neckline that was both extremely low-cut and somewhat wide.

      Okay, Lynn, I added pictures. This one I can take additional photos and measurements, if you want.
