This bra is the dreaded "Grandma" bra that I wear to scare away my husband. Ha ha. One look at this thing on me causes him to fall asleep immediately, as if I wasn't there at all. The thing is, we ALL need to have a basic, boring, functional bra. There's no choice. There are times in life where we simply cannot get away with wearing pretty bralettes. Sunnie Full Coverage is my "lecture" or "before an audience" bra for times when my boobs should attract 0 attention. Because it fits me perfectly, it works perfectly for this. It keeps "bounce" ...to a minimum, it covers nearly all my breast tissue, it has almost a minimizing effect because it's wide set, and it completely covers my second set of boobs (underarm rolls from wearing the wrong bra size). This bra comes in many colors, which I enjoy very much, but nude bras are necessities in our wardrobes. This is my second favorite "basic" bra, falling just behind Panache Porcelain. I still prefer the Porcelain because it gives me more rounded shaping and front/center uplift. The Sunnie is lightly lined (ordinary foam cups) and its shape, like most T-shirt bras, follows exactly that of my East-West breasts. This makes it extremely comfortable and functional, but, I must admit, I do like the "lift" I get from Panache Andorra, Panache Porcelain, and even Bali Flower Bra. The Sunnie is my all-purpose, support, coverage bra. It's soft, comfy, and quite inexpensive. I find it very similar to Soma Embraceable bras, but Aerie is more lightweight. Read more 168 more words
Some background context: I resumed wearing regular bras five months ago after years in bralettes. Using bratabase's calculator, I measure closer to a 30e/f, and and am currently looking for my first proper-fitting bra. I think that I'm FOB, projected, narrow & short-rooted, wide-spaced with soft tissue.
Band's far too big, throws off the whole fit. I'm not particularly keen on moulded bras--they just feel weird to me. After scoop and swoop I get overspill, but my breasts settle pretty quickly and I end up with a gap. I think that this model is too shallow in the base of the cup, and that the cups are too tall for me. Before I gave up on bras, I'd gotten it into my head that full-coverage was the best way to go to prevent quad-boobing, but now I know that I just had the wrong size entirely.
I have shallow conical breasts that was measured at a 28DD. This is quite a full coverage bra as it comes up relatively high. The band is a little more firm than some other models of Aerie bras, but is still quite stretchy. There is very slight quad boobing on my larger breast right after I swoop and scoop, but kind of settles back into the bra after a little time. I am still undecided if I want to keep the bra. Everything else is comfortable and has soft material.
