Why, oh why did I ever buy this bra? I typically wear a 30DDD, and yet for some reason purchased this ill-fitting 30C on a whim. Perhaps I was simply excited to see a band smaller than 32 in a store? Whatever the reason, this bra has never fit correctly, and I have no one to blame but myself.
This bra is an extreme push-up bra, with thick padding at the base of each cup. It also sits pretty low on the rib cage, furthering the va-va-voom push up effect. For the right person (i.e. a person who actually wears this bra size!), I think it could be very ...flattering. For me, it was a constant struggle to stay contained in the bra. My nipples like to escape out the top. Because nothing says party like a bra that won't contain your nipples!
Perhaps the saddest part of this bra saga is that I actually wore the darn thing, quite a few times. To the point where I think the band is pretty stretched out. To the point where the straps are now dissolving into ribbons and mesh? Although I think that's more of a laundry problem than anything else. But I'm turning over a new leaf! I'm going to invest in bras that actually fit me, using this website as a guide! So this bra is going away. Far, far, away. I will no longer settle for ill-fitting bras that refuse to contain my curves! Read more 136 more words
I bought this from Zulily, which described it as a t-shirt bra, not a push-up. And it is a serious push up! It would be great for a shallow shape to get some cleavage. The fabric is very smooth, and wouldn't show under thin knits. The straps are only slightly stretchy, not made of elastic, which is nice. As for the band, it is a lot tighter than some of my other 30s.
I usually wear a 30F and have shallow, wide, even-to-FOT boobs that are a little close-set.
1) This bra gives an excellent shape--comic book heroine levels of boobiness! 2) The color is great--the tan color disappears under most clothing. 3) The straps are nice and thin, and do not cut into my shoulders. 4) The cups width was great for my wide boobs.
1) The gore is way too wide as is, and was resting on my breast tissue in the center. This lessened the comic book heroine boobs effect. I took in the gore so much that the underwire channels were almost overlapping and it fits much better ...that way. 2) Band is a bit too big, but that was to be expected since I sister sized up. It's firmer than most 32s, but not as firm as a true 30. I can get away with using the 2nd hook for now. 3) There is serious gapping on top. Taking in the gore fixed some of the problem, but it still gapes if I slouch. 4) The bottom of the cup also has space I can't fill out. The pushup pads fill out some of the space, but I still feel like the cups are just too tall in general. Read more 99 more words
This bra doesn't fit me right. It has a lot of gaping at the top of the cup. Band runs a bit tight for a 30. Cups seem really tall and wide. Really nice, smooth material. Very pretty, I love the accent color on the inside of the cups. This would make a great push-up t-shirt bra.
Surprisingly comfortable. I don't usually get push-up bras but I got this on a sale website and it wasn't mentioned. This bra is a nice tan color and very smooth such that it largely disappears under clothing. The straps are nice and thin and the band is as well. The cups seem like they gap in the top and I don't super get why. It's really comfortable, regardless.
This bra is a beige satiny fabric. The cups are lined with non-removable push up pads. I did not know it was push-up when I purchased it online new, and I'm not looking for push up styles generally. The straps are fully adjustable. But the cups gap when I wear it and I can't fill the cup shape. The foam is pretty stiff and the band is a normal to looser 30 band. The E cups are more generous than usual.
This bra is really great for those times when you want some "oomph"! It is padded and gives a fantastic full, rounded shape under clothes. It is seamless and a great push-up style T-shirt bra. My only complaint is that the wires seem super wide for me. My girls are very front and center, and there's a lot of excess cup on either side that isn't containing anything.
Definitely a pushup bra (which makes measuring the cup depth tricky!) The gore on this I think is a smidge too wide for me; combined with a slightly too-small cup that's also a weird shape for me, I had a bit of spilling and cutting in at the center, and gaping on the sides.
