I LOVE this bra!!!! Go figure, since it was the only bra I've purchased in recent weeks (in an effort to find a better fit than the not-at-ALL-fitting bras i have been wearing) that was a "meh, maybe it'll kinda work for me" sort of purchase. I'm discovering which brands and models work best for me; this is by far the best so far. It is snug where it should be, the cups hug my breasts and chest the way i would hope for my breast type, the comfort level is next to top-notch, the straps aren't diggy, the wires aren't pokey either in the gore or my underarms, ...my extremely soft-tissue pendulous breasts don't spill out when i bend over--I mean, seriously! This is amaaaaayzing! Only slight con is that there's a bit of creaking in the underwire areas--LOL. I've never experienced this before. It's a minor thing for me, considering all the wondermousness of this bra, overall. The cups are nice and soft inside (and the pretty outside is soft, too, btw!) and a good balance of projection and shallowness so that I can get that nice rounded shape (which in my case is achieved through smooshing the boobs against the chest wall, hehe). Since my breasts need SO much support, though--due to being high on my chest and very-heavy-tissue pendulous--I wonder if the cups will eventually wrinkle from the weight. You can't stop a tidal wave, kid (or at least not forever)! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";-)" /> My pre-pregnancy go-to bra, the panache sport in 30H, wrinkled within a couple days of use, and this amazing Ava bra still has zero wrinkles, so... Just sayin... Read more 168 more words
Beautiful thistle flower pattern, grey-blue outlined print on a nice light blue undertone. Cup edges and bottom have a pretty lacey border. Nice detailing like a little 'knot' on the centre gore. Materials feel of high quality, soft and well put together. Inner cups are lined with a cottony fabric, very comfy.
I like how this bra's design is really feminine but in a little more edgy / original way than your standard pinks, hearts and florals (though admittedly I also love 'kitsch' bras - but there's a time and a place for everything https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" /> ).
On me this bra unfortunately doesn't work though: ...mainly because the cups are too tall. For reference, My height is 1.68 m (around 5.5) and my boobs are not low on my chest (not sure if they're high set either, I guess 'medium'?). In any case, I often have issues with underwires + cup edges ending too high under my armpits and I really dislike that feeling. Sad, because apart from the tall cups this bra is pretty great!
Rest of the fit is quite decent: tacking gore, band is nice and snug, no overspill. Maybe slightly shallow in the bottom for my projection. Fits like a UK 30GG / 30H I would say. As for who this bra would fit, I'm mostly FOT but I guess this bra would also work for even fullness. FoB I'm not sure.
Anyway I'm listing this bra: it's brand new with tags. Read more 140 more words
I'm so happy for you!!
What a gorgeous bra!
I have the same bra in 65J, yes it's pretty and the fabrics are great!
Sadly for me however it comes up too high under the arms.. Thanks for the review, good reminder that I need to list this (and many more 😬)
