A very pretty bra from Affinitas, unfortunately not quite in my size. I bought this in a 30C, and while the cups fit me beautifully and the bra itself is quite comfortable, I'm just not a 30 underbust. I wore it straight out of the box on the tightest setting, and it still has space in the band - to be fair, this seems like a somewhat tighter 30 band than my other bras, as it has only about 2 inches of extra stretch to it.
The bra has lace side panels that actually seem very sturdy, and completely removable straps that could be altered to a halterneck ...or crossback (or whatever else you fancy) style. Also, though the color is billed as 'navy blue,' it's no navy - the Affinitas website does have an accurate picture of the color, however. Also, note that this bra does have graduated foam padding in the cups, despite being billed as a t-shirt bra. I wanted this, but if you're not looking for a slight push-up effect, be aware.
Definitely a nice bra, and it's a shame it's not made with a smaller band size. If you can fit, it's a good buy! Read more 91 more words
This bra turned out to be a lovely surprise. I ordered it online because it was on sale for a good price, however, the Affinitas line is available in many USA department stores. I have owned Parfait bras, but this is the first time I tried one from their Affinitas line, and I like this particular bra much better than any of the 4 Parfait bras I have owned and worn. This T-shirt bra is extremely soft, malleable, and silky. The band is quite stretchy. For now it fits me well on the tightest hooks, and I hope the band will stay stable ...after a few wears. My problem with 32 bands is they rarely stay their original size after even one day's wear. This bra has made it through two wears and it's still firm. The underwire cups are contoured, with graduated, crescent-shaped foam padding along their bottoms. The heaviest part of the padding is about .5"/1.27 cm. thick, but, to me, it doesn't feel like "push-up" type padding. The band is snug and the cups seem to be shaped well for my shallow, wide breasts. Size 32C is often a hit or miss with me, because 32 bands can be far too loose, and, quite often, C cups quad-boob to the point that they are noticeable under clothing. These cups are wide enough that they don't cut off breast tissue; similar to a balconette shape. This bra is pretty and comfortable and I got it for a decent price, so I'm pleased with it. I look forward to trying more Affinitas bras in hopes that more are suited to my shape and size. Read more 181 more words
Fits ok, but the underwire is uncomfortable. The cups are a bit too small at the bottom and fit ok on top. The straps are comfortably wide, but for some reason the attachment points are about to come off. Looks pretty normal.
This bra is very comfortable and attractive. It would be great under low cut t-shirts because it creates a very smooth, attractive line. The underwire is very comfortable and is a standard length. I would prefer it a little longer on the outer sides because it digs in a lot a creates armpit fat behind the strap. I find myself adjusting it often because of that. I would recommend this bra for someone who has a small frame.
