Too wide for me, and even though it's a 32, is SO tight. But that could also be because of the sticky material that's made to hold it up. Fortunately I don't have to wear strapless bras that much, I'd probably hate this thing more if I did!
This is the exact same bra as the Parfait by Affinitas Kimberly balconette.
I had a feeling this wasn't going to fit in the first place, but I didn't give up all hope. Well, as it turns out, it doesn't fit. Oh well. When I first looked at it though, I thought, "Wow, these cups are huge, there's no way..." Color me surprised when I tried it on and it actually had cut into my breast tissue on my larger breast. I'm starting to think Parfait isn't right for me though, which is a bummer, because I like much of their stuff.
The band is quite tight. Stretched, it got ...to 32, and I probably could have gotten it longer, but let's say that if you don't like your bands very snug (like I do), then you're not going to have a good time. My measurements are actually 30 under (31 on bigger days) too, so if you are a solid 32 or large 32, you really aren't going to have a good time.
The bottom of the cup isn't filled on me. It's all puckered up, like a molded Panache Porcelain bra I tried on at my not-DD+-friendly Nordstrom Rack. If I adjust myself a bit I can get it mostly filled, but after moving my arms it slides right back into place. The same goes with the cup cutting into my breast. If I push the breast down and to the side a little (where some tissue likely slips out of the cup), it fits in there, but if I ensure nearly everything is in the cup, it cuts a bit. On top of that, the cup is clearly too big on my smaller breast. The gore also doesn't stay flat, but is pushed out because of my breasts. My measurements put me in around a 30GG/30H, but to be honest, I found that to be so unbelievable because a short two months ago I was a 32F. I guess that's tissue migration for you.
The wires are a bit too long on my sides. If they were a centimeter or two shorter, it would probably be fine.
The straps aren't fully adjustable, which I don't care about, but others might. They can be removed though. There is also a silicone strip along the band to hold it in place were you to wear it strapless.
The bra itself is very pretty, very soft, lovely to look at, and comfortable despite it being illfitting. There are some loose threads on it though, namely on the center of the cup and by the hooks, but that's easily fixed (not that it matters anyway). Read more 330 more words
