I managed to order this bra on the very last day Anna Pardal took orders. Grr. Getting the bra took months, and I must admit I wasn't too thrilled about the whole business since this was the first AP bra I ordered and now it would be impossible to exchange if the size was wrong. Yahoo. Well, eventually the bra arrived and I got down to trying it on.
Well, the cups are a perfect hit. The shape is gorgeous, almost as perky as EM S-style at its best, but achieved with less padding. The straps are bit more towards the center than in EM bras, which is ... a very good thing. The band, however, was too big. The original size was 34J and I admit that I shouldn't have listened to the general advice in the net "go one band- and cup size up from your regular UK size". No, I should have gone with my gut and taken the normal band and one cup size up. Well, no can do. So I shortened the band with 5 cm (2 inches). Problem solved.
The bra is very pretty and excellent workmanship. I love the boho/hippie print and the details are lovely. A shame AP shut down, basing on this one bra, the bra industry lost a real talent. Hopefully Comexim will keep manufacturing her styles, since I love the nuance shape so much that the next time I order from Comexim, I'll ask if the bra can be made in it.
