I ordered this bra in 'cassius'. It's a deep purple with fuchsia ruffled lace along the top (no elastic), and a funky multi-colored bow. A nice touch is the use of pink hooks which stand out from the purple band. The straps are fully adjustable.
I ordered it in my usual band size and would probably wear it with an extender initially as it starts out a bit tight. The cups were about one size too large for me, as compared to the Michelle in the same size which runs larger.
I had difficulty getting the gore to lie flat on my chest despite the ...fact that the cups were too large, so I think it may not be the best shape for me.
Although the website is completely in Polish, it was easy to contact them and arrange the order via email. I paid by bank transfer. I ordered on 22 February and the package was at the post office on 12 March (within Europe) although I wasn't able to pick it up until 13 March. This time includes the time it took for the payment to reach them, so it was quite reasonable. Read more 89 more words
Wow, the first ever Bratabase review of an Avocado bra - and I get to write it! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":D" />
First about the brand. It's Polish, and high-end, which shows in their prices (almost double compared to EM, for example). Since all Polish bras I've seen look stunning, they're not distinctive in that regard. Avocado does not have an english site yet, but their very friendly customer service (they speak excellent english, by the way) informed me that they'll be taking steps in the near future to better serve international customers. I hope this means they'll add PayPal to their payment options - I ...paid via money transfer. About the bra: The Annick is a balconnette, made of see-through black lace. Pros: - Beautiful design - Excellent quality - Low underwires - Soft material
Cons: Since this bra was at least two cupsizes too small for me and the band was tight, I can't say anything definite about its shape. - Underwires felt soft - Band stretchiness a mystery (may be very stretchy) - Cups run small. According to the Avocado size chart my overbust measurement 104cm should fit fine into their 65K which has an overbust measurement of 106cm, but it's WAY too small. I'll be exchanging this to 70L (which in Comexim bras is too small for me...), hope it fits. If not, then we can write Avocado off the list of brands that cater to really big boobs. That would be a shame, for their designs are beautiful.
BTW. I didn't add the stretched band measurement as the bra is going back. Read more 157 more words
