Oh gosh. Okay, i know i have no business trying to squeeze my boobs into these cups. But goddangit, this bra is just so beautiful. It's a princess bra. I scoured the internet to find it and this was the only one i could find. If i tuck and pull and scoop with all my heart, i can get everything in with minimal side spillage. I'm keeping it just because it's so gorgeous. I'm wondering if the equivalent Affinitas Marilyn comes in a DDD. I'd probably be the happiest girl in the world if i could find one...
I simply love this bra, having small breast and a large rib cage presents difficulties in finding the right size but this one was bang on. Bra is comfortable even when wearing for prolong periods and doesn't poke. Extra straps in the front mainly for looks but also makes you feel sexy while wearing it.
Wanted to see how true to size a us bra would be in this size. I was pleased with how tight the band actually was. The cup maybe slightly smaller than my UK 30F bras. Cups too east west for me quads mostly near the gore, fits well on the sides of the cup. I have an older bra in this style, but before I knew my real size. I like the purple colorway of that one as compared to the new colors which look cheaper, but I'm sure thus size is new to these most recent colorways.
This probably isn't the strappy bra to end my strappy bra search, but I'm pretty happy with it. I was actually quite happy wearing it yesterday, but looking at some of the pictures I took in it, there are certainly fit problems. This was mostly with slight gaping in the cups as I moved around, which I can deal with.
The gore doesn't tack at the top. I hardly ever have this problem anymore, even in 32D or 32DD bras that aren't quite my ideal size. I wonder if it's partially the fault of the cutout gore? I've never had a bra with a gore like this.
The ...shoulder straps are so long and stretchy, but fully adjustable at least. I adjusted them to almost the shortest length to get a good fit ... but I'm 5'6 so this bra might not work for more petite or high set ladies.
The seam in the middle of the cup gives me a pointy shape and may show under clothes. Not my favorite cup shape.
The cage straps fit me well, unlike in previous bras I've tried, but they rub my armpit fat area in an irritating way when I'm sitting or moving because they're so tall.
I don't fill out the bottoms of the cups and the bra tends to slip down and not sit in my IMF, though I can make it for awhile.
The included bottoms run huge. The size chart pointed me toward a large, but I got a M. The M is a bit big - I could have done with a size S
Band fits tight/true to size
And now the question remains if I keep it and deal with these things, or move on to the next one. Read more 181 more words
I'm so happy I found this brand! Actually saw a commercial for Adore Me on tv and decided to check out their website, then downloaded their app. Very similar to Victoria's Secret, but at half the price! And as a VIP member your first set is only $19.95, free shipping and exchanges (in the US), and your sixth set is FREE!!! Doesn't get much better than that! And with my lingerie addiction, this deal was too good to pass up https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" />
As soon as I saw this print, I instantly fell in love with it. And I have zero bralettes, it was a ...win-win! I LOVE this set!! It's so simple, yet adorably sexy and feminine. The satiny material is super soft with a nice touch of lace trim. I wasn't sure what size to get in this simply because I'm unfamiliar with this brand and their sizing. But I opted for the Medium (normally wear a 32DDD in VS or a M/L in bikini tops). Since this is an unlined bralette, I figured the Small would be too small in the cup but the Large would be too big around (in the "band"), so I played it safe with the Medium. It's almost perfect, but the band is a bit loose around and hikes up a bit in the back (and a little in the front as well). But other than that, it's perfect. And did I mention how gorgeous it is?! Lol! The pics don't really do it justice. And the matching panties (Small) are so cute, and sexy. I feel they fit true to size.
I can not WAIT to buy more lingerie from this brand!! I wanna try out all of their styles!!!
So pretty and soft! I bought this one from the wonderful kerniss . Thank you so much for sending it so fast! Sorry it took me so long to review it. I love it! It's my first longline bra. The fit is very good, similar to my 30DD Wacoal Retro Chic bra. Pictures tomorrow when I have lighting that will show off the pretty subtle shine of the lace. There was 1 hook of the 5 bent but I was able to fix it easily. I only have 1 problem: the bottom edge of the bra wants to roll under itself a tiny bit. It never gets severe enough to be visible, but I do notice and correct it every 3-4 hours. I have a relatively short torso. It's not something that would make me let go of this pretty pretty bra!
I bought this from AdoreMe.com because it looked identical to Parfait by Affinitas Fiona camisole. I ordered my normal Parfait by Affinitas size of 30G.
The size is right on. The silky material makes me feel so sexy. The only issues I have with it are: 1) that clasp on the zipper bothers me if I wear it too long. 2) the gore is slightly too tall for me which then as it adjusts to my body pulls the cups down lower than they should be, since the wires do not want ...to lay on top of my breast tissue. 3) I did have to shorten the straps.
I almost think this this could be worn as outwear with a high waisted black pencil skirt to go out to bar or a nightclub on a special occasion. Or at least to Rocky Horror Picture Show.
I do wonder how this would compare to the same camisole with a Parfait by Affinitas label. I wonder if the finishing would be just a little more perfect. Like maybe, they send their rejects to AdoreMe.com. Edit: On the inside there are threads sticking out from the seams. On a camisole with the Parfait label, I'm not sure if they would send it out like that. But it could just be the nature of the fabric. I tried trimming the threads a little, but then I accidentally cut a hole in the body of the fabric, and decided it wasn't worth it to try and trim the threads anymore. Read more 178 more words
I got this bra specifically because the reviews indicated that it was big in cup and band, since Adoreme is know to run small in band and cup I figured this was a good shot at getting something good. And i was kinda right.
The fabric is very smooth and comfortable. The cups are titled slightly to far away from each other but there is enough fabric to neatly pull the cups and stitch in place. The wires are quite long... however they are metal... so I just bent them to be a bit narrower and seems to be working for me. Going to keep this bra and at the gore so that it is more narrow.
* sigh * well guess balconette with adoreme is a bust for these boobs. First tried a 30ddd and there wasn't enough room, sized up and it would have worked with a few alterations but I don't feel like dealing with that and will just be sending it back.
Need a bit of help ordering some bras. I have done a bit of research on here and it appears when you convert from 30 E UK to 30DDD US you loose about an inch of depth from 9" to 8". I just received my order which was a 30DDD US and this was the case. My go to bra is a 30E UK and has a depth of 9 but this new on is 30DDD US and is only 8". [For those of you who might ask that's what it was converted to in US increments.30DDD/G US. But G usually isn't an option to buy]
What should I order when 30E UK isn't an option? Should I try a 32DD US?
It's a great bra but completely the wrong size for me. So bummed! Strapless, very supportive long-line bra with slightly sticky cups to keep it from slipping, although it's hardly necessary because it's so supportive. Also very pretty navy color and lace pattern.
I ordered this bra, but accidentally ordered the wrong size. I only ever tried it on once (the tags are still on it). I meant to send it back but I got caught up with exams and work and missed the deadline for it. It has a contour plunge and the fabric is a polyester/spandex/nylon blend with lace & satin overlay on the cups. It is from AdoreMe where it has a five star review. The straps are completely adjustable (they each have one small rhinestone at the base of the cup) and it has a pretty standard double row hook and eye closure.
I love this bra, it's so pretty! But unfortunately it's not my right size. Provides great push-up if wanted and pads can be removed. Straps are also removable and the bra can be converted to strapless. I will be buying it again in another size! Up for sale.
