This is my first Anna Pardal bra, in the "Sophisticate Balconette" cut. I'd almost completely given up on Comexim after 3 failed attempts. But what a wonderfully pleasant surprise this bra turned out to be!! THIS bra is that "perfect fit" I've been searching for!!
I never would've even come close to achieving this amazing fit if it weren't for Jaimie's help at Bra Obsessed!!! If I had ordered this bra myself, I know I never would've ordered it in THIS size! Thankfully, Jaimie knows exactly what she's doing! She's terrific! After reviewing tons of pics and analyzing my size and shape (mostly by looking over my entire Bratabase ... profile) she was able to recommend the correct sizes for me to try. If they didn't fit, I could easily return or exchange them. But there is no need. Every bra (all 4 of them) that I ordered thru her with her suggestions has fit to a tee!!! I'm so happy!! And I'm super grateful she was kind enough to take the time to help me so much!! I can't find a single thing wrong with this bra. It feels like a perfect mold of my own boobs!! Haha!! I've never had such a perfect fit in a bra!! The gore tacks perfectly, without digging in, the cups are filled perfectly without any gaping or quad boob, the edge of the cups lay perfectly against my boob, the straps are perfectly placed, the wires hug the outside of my boob just right, the wings are perfect height and the band is exactly how I like it - tight and snug on the first hook. And with 3 rows and 3 columns of hooks I feel the extra support I like without the band moving an inch up my back. I've kept the bra on since I first tried it on over an hour ago and still no complaints. A bit snug, but not uncomfortably so. The cups are a little crinkly right now but the bra just needs to be broken in.
I will say, the band and cup on this do run on the smaller side. Just to give you an idea, I normally wear a 65FF/60G in Ewa Michalak, and a 28G in most UK brands (32DDD in VS). So I wasn't expecting this bra to even come close to fitting in a 30GG!! But I'm very happy I listened to Jaimie and took her advice The band on this bra only stretched to about 27.5"!!! It's more of a true 28 than it is a 30. So I would def suggest sizing up in both band and cup.
Overall, I'm ecstatic with the fit of this bra. And I HIGHLY HIGHLY suggest you shoot Jaimie an email at Bra Obsessed if you're having a hard time pinpointing your size! The bras may be a bit more pricey, but it's so worth it!!!!!! That price includes special, individualized, personal fitting/sizing assistance, along with the convenience of not having to special order in Polish!! Lol!!
Finally decided to pull this baby out for a nice, cozy rainy day. Wore it all day and night but when the time came, I couldn't wait to get it off!! Not the most comfortable bra I've worn. And I just prefer a smoother fabric under shirts. I also feel like it was a bit too minimizing. I'm a padded bra kind of girl, and I like a bit more "oomph!" It's a shame, esp since Anna Pardal is no more But I would've loved another one in a different fabric and perhaps with cookie inserts. It would be my dream bra! Hopefully, it just needs to be broken in, it's still pretty stiff and scratchy.
