This beauty, this gem, this gorgeous bra is mine at last. But you know what? When I first put her on, I was completely underwhelmed! I’ve *loved* my 32FF - Anna Pardal For Comexim » Lady Grey Sophisticated Balcon since I got it, and I’ve always loved the grey satin trim on the cup edge of the 3HC in addition to the rounded profile, so it’s baffling to why I felt like that when I first put it on, and I can’t figure out what it is about the fit that makes me feel like this.
True to its sister, the Lady Grey is a ... buttery soft satiny material that feels so luxurious. The peachy salmon base with the grey print is so classy, and the grey straps with the grey satin trim on the cups and bow at the center gore are nicely accented. The print on the cups has almost a navy blue tinge to the grey. Personally, I love the straps on these bras, even though they are thinner and many people prefer a wider strap. Like its sister, this bra also share a 3 hookset tape.
The fit of this is sadly a bit too snug for me. If we’re talking strictly technical fit, then this band is it. It’s snug and I can get two fingers in between my skin and the band. From a comfortable fit perspective, it’s digging into my ribcage and not the best option for lengthy wear. The cups are pretty good but you can see how the satin cup edge ribbon closes the bra off a little bit more than I need and therefore I have a bit of a dent in my boobs from it. But it’s super minor. Were I to find the correct size extender, I might have a little more cup space as a result. The straps are fine, cup width, height, and depth are all pretty good...narrow wires with moderate projection, and because the cup edge is a little bit closed on top, it minimizes a potentially too tall cup height on me in this size, unaltered.
I have not decided what I’m doing with this yet... keep it and wear it for short periods to stretch the band out or resist it? While it’s growing on me more as I try it on, part of me feels like my original Lady Grey is the better fit on me.
