This is the same cut as my 80F - Aubade » Aubade À L'amour, a half cup designed for larger cups. I bought the Aubade à l’amour in 80F(65F) but this size is only available on special order. So when I stepped into their boutique I decided to try on the sister size in the hope it runs tight. I tried two models, the Soleil nocturne in red and this one. The Soleil nocturne runs rather loose and I didn’t like the shape it gives even though the lace is breathtaking.
I now mostly wear 70 bands in EM. The older I get the looser bands ... I need https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";-)" /> On the one hand it’s because my skin is more sensible, on the other hand I have back pain when the band is too tight. The band in this one is a little bit tricky. I think it runs true too size, it’s wearable on the loosest hook but I have the impression that it rides up even though it actually stays in place. I wear in on the second hook and it feels stable and comfy. I think this impression of riding up may be due to the straps – in all Aubade bras they are partially unstretchy which, I think, makes them pull on the band more than with stretchy straps.
I’m a huge fan of this cut. It seems Aubade managed to design a perfect unpadded half cup bra that gives support and nice shape. Even the HM cut from Ewa Michalak doesn’t measure up ! The cups are quite high so there’s no spilling and everything is kept stable during the day. The center gore is very high so it might be stabby for sensitive sternums. This model seems to run big in cups compared to other I’ve tried so far.
Aubade is definitely killing it when it comes to the design. The Femme romantique is aptly named: the cups are made out of black tulle adorned with multicolour floral embroidery. The cups are lined with black mesh. As mentioned above, the straps are only partially stretchy and adjustable. The front part is unstretchy, covered with violet ribbon and black embroidery. The wings and back band are made of two layers: black lace and mesh.
