    Didn't fit

    For kicks I decided to take a trip down memory lane and dig up an old model bra that used to be ubiquitous. Way back when, after we grew out of the "Teen Form Training Bra" days, we didn't have Victoria's Secret, or Aerie, or Soma, and we had nothing like Bralettes to soothe our distorted boobs. Shopping for bras created quintessential memories of Body Shaming to the maximum. In high school, I think everyone I knew wore a 34 (not because they fit!), in basic white Playtex, or Maidenform bras that looked just like this.

    I loved Bali "natural woman" bras, but I was ... most partial to Olga bras. I can't remember the model name (Bodysilk maybe?), but there was a certain "front-close" bra that basically got me through high school and college. It seemed front close bras were more available then. This was good for me, because the alternative was (as shown in these photos) to have my tissue smashed down all over my ribcage, with weird extra pointy unfilled fabric at my nipples. I used to think this meant I was "flat-chested". And maybe I am, but not in the way I thought as the time! This particular Bali Flower Bra doesn't look very good under my clothing because it's shape is really out of date. This thing provides lift like no other, I'll give it that. However it tried to project the lift (literally) into the tips of the cups so boobs look like thin tubes with conical ends.

    I am so grateful for the invention of the T-shirt bra! We've come a long way!

    • I remember these, too :-) :-)

    • Thank you for the throwback! I relate - my first bra was a Playtex 18-hour bra in 36C, which didn't fit in sooo many ways.

    • The Bali Flower I used to have was a soft cup. And like you said , extra unfilled pointy material at the nipple area.
      My favorite bras I had when I was in high school in the 1980's were made by @ Vanity Fair and @Lilly of France. I had a front closer made by @Lilly of France that I thought was really my most comfortable bra.

    • This was my every day bra in high school...size 34DD. Later, in college, I wore "minimizers" by Lilyette, Wacoal, Olga in 34DDD. I now wear my correct size of 30FF.

    • The Bali Flower is still made today, not sure who it actually fits.

    • I graduated from high school in 83, and Olga were the bras I wore the most too. I think I wore a 34DD, which sort of maybe almost fit? I couldnt wear front closures even then, because the gore on those was always too wide for me, and hurt. I wear a 32JJ now, but I weigh like 45 lb more than I did in high school, so you know I was never really a 34. Or a DD.

      oh, and - no t-shirt bras in my size still

    • I think I've blocked it out of my memory, lol!

    • My first bra was similar in shape, only worse. And it looked hidiou and I hated its. It was 34B and SO ill-fitting :( I wear 28F now.

      I had a few of these, my how times change! Yep always pointy, but they were comfortable. Probably why they are still being made.

    Overall, I think this fits well. It is comfortable with no wires poking me. It seems to have nice support.

      The one thing I forgot to mention is this is definitely not a minimizer bra. It certainly is very noticeable under tops.

    • 1

      Just wondering if you are "scooping and swooping" when you put your bra on? Here is a video tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ks6BCcsvrrs
      If you get bubbling or cutting in after you scoop and swoop, try a bigger size or different shaped cup.

    • 2

      Thank you so much. I did watch the video, and mimicked the "scoop and Swoop". It made a difference in that there was now more projection. The bra still feels very comfortable.

    • I am not sure if this is the right place, but, I have more than one color in my bras for the same model. Is there a place to put how many bras or can you only submit one bra model?

      Thanks,
      Bobbie

    • Submit as many as you want. :-) When you first add the bra, there is an "Additional Information (optional)" box. Select that box, and you will see a field to enter color and acquisition date. Because some colorways run larger or smaller, the color information can be very helpful. : -)

    • Thanks...:)

    • Thanks...:)

    Grabbed this from a free box. In gently used condition. Previous wearer must have worn this white bra with black shirts as there is black fuzz pilling all over. I've washed and dried and will list this for free soon. Band was hard for me to measure the stretch, so it might stretch even wider.
    Wire are extremely bendy and the material is very light and stretch. This would be very easy to alter to a smaller band size.

    I've worn this fantastic bra as my everyday bra for many years. The wide band supports most of the weight of my "girls",so the shoulder straps put very little pressure on my shoulders, even after a full days wear. In fact the fit is so good that I rarely have to fiddle with the straps or tug at the band. For those of us with "more up top" the support and cup coverage make this a great bra to wear while working out. There are a few downsides however; the firm support and construction give a look that is too "pointy" for some wearers. The cups are seamed and will show though some tops, it's an underwire bra so get used to the idea of hand washing it if you want it to last the longest. Also the color selection is pretty limited as your choices are white, beige, and just recently midnight. I was thrilled to find this bra offered Midnight at last.

      I love the Midnight colorway! Hmm, maybe my old school/pointy bra experiment needs to be revived :-D If you get a chance, it would be really awesome for the community if you could measure this and enter your data. I see that the Flower has no consistent measurements in this size, which makes it hard for other users to determine how to choose a size. Large band sizes are very underrepresented so every entry is very helpful to others!

    Even if this bra fit me right, I don't think I'd keep it. Brand new and fabric is already frayed at the gore and on the straps. The hardware on the straps also feel like cheep, not durable, plastic. Though, for <$20 I guess who cares. On second thought, for $20, if the cups weren't so laughably empty, I'd keep it, but this one I returned.

    Only a subtle bullet, and it puts my breasts closer together so my arms don't crush them. I kind of like the pointiness - even with t shirts that are meant to be worn with round, moulded cups. I feel like such a badass with pointy boobs! It does cut into my breasts, but it's the best fitting bra I've ever had. It is nice and low in the armpits, so it doesn't even dig in. It is nice and supportive and gives me a flattering silhouette.

    It diggs into my upper breats tissue, but it's the best fitting bra I've had.

      This is a consequence on how encapsulation pointy bras work. They channel all in the cups from all directions, upper portion included.

      Doreen bras, the real ones, can be still found in your size range. By experience, they are deliciously pointy, durable, usable as daily wear and their design solves the described probem.

    About this Bra
    This is an unpadded, seamed, underwire, full cup, vintage-styled (bullet) bra that is easily available and crazy cheap.

    Purchasing:
    * $17.99 on Amazon with free Prime shipping & returns (not Amazon Wardrobe)
    * available only in black, white, and beige

    Band:
    * One layer of a stretch mesh.
    * Wing support: boning.
    * Full band - band straight beneath wires
    * Back close with 3 columns of hooks.

    Straps:
    * smooth, non-stretch satin
    * soft (don't stand up on their own)
    * full adjust
    * leotard back
    * CENTER PULL
    * FRONT ADJUST

    Cups:
    * 2-seam (3-piece) full cup
    * unpadded, very flexible underwire with a deep U shape
    * Wire is advertised as having "cushion tip," but I can't feel anything ... special at the ends of the wires.
    * Inner, top edge of cup is a non-stretch seaming. Outer, top edge of cup is elastic that continues to the top of the band.
    * Top panel is non-stretch mesh (unlined).
    * Center panel is two layers of a non-stretch, opaque knit.
    * Lowest panel is one layer of a thicker, stiffer, non-stretch, opaque knit (unlined).
    * Soft cups (no padding or molding).


    About Me: petite with wide horizontal oval, slightly conical breasts
    * average projection
    * average-set (one finger width of space between breasts)
    * very wide roots (extend past the mid-axillary line)
    * even horizontal fullness (just barely outer full)
    * short root height, average vertical placement
    * mix of firm & soft tissue (front molds to shape of bra, sides push wimpy wires away)
    * conical shape (but will squish to round)
    * full on top (2/4 shape, not even or very full) - BUT functionally even to FOB due to short roots and soft tissue
    * petite (5'3") so have narrow frame
    * front (anterior) rib flares


    Fit

    Band:
    * length: back rides up
    * wings: good height

    Gore: High but comfy. Tacks, spacing fine.

    Straps:
    * Not too far apart
    * Adjust short enough, BUT already at shortest setting. Since they are non-stretch satin, this might be ok.

    Cups:
    * Wires enclose tissue nicely. Smooth line on top of cup.
    * Super shallow at wire -- oodles of wrinkling.
    * Tiny bit too deep (small wrinkles at the apex).
    * Give a round, projected, pointy shape. A good pointy. Slightly wide shape, but better than most. Works well with my natural shape.

    Appearance under Clothing:
    * Seams NOT visible under thin T-shirt, but apex wrinkles are.
    * Top edge of cups VERY visible under V-neck.
    * Very visible (~1 cm) in armholes of sleeveless shirt. And edge of straps visible on the back of shoulders (not in front).


    Comfort & Fit Summary
    * Band too big, cups slightly too projected.
    * Want to try next band size smaller with the same-to-smaller cup. Unfortunately, the 32 is the smallest band made in this model.

    Best fitting bra I own. The band sits as it should but the gore between breasts isn't strong enough to stay against my ribcage, creating a sports bra type fit... Which is good... But I still hold hope there is a 2 boob bra that loves me somewhere out there!

  9. Center gore tacks. Good

    Wires could be wider but my breast tissue is not spilling over the side.

    Band is not tight, jufging by how far I can pull it away from my body.

    Thinking of sister sizing down to 40:7, 40F but Bali does not make that size so I will have to try Elomi or Goddess perhaps. :\

    Fits

    Gives a slightly pointed shape, much more than most bras today, but definitely not pointy enough to be a bullet bra. Gives some structure to my soft tissue, though a bit more structure would still be helpful. Bottom of the gore tacks well but the top is pushed out slightly because there is not quite enough structure to prevent my soft tissue from forcing it outward as my tissue tries to pool in the bottom of the cup. But I have this problem with multiple high-gore bras and it is not as severe as usual with this one.

    I can jump up and down in this bra with very little bounce. It's more supportive in that way than any sports bra I've ever owned. I saw an Amazon reviewer mention using this as a sports bra and I think it would work well for that.
