Got this from a bratabase user for my mommy and just got an exultant text that "It FITS!!" https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":D" /> Will update with more info when I go see her Monday.
I bought this bra way back when, before I'd been fitted properly (and before the weight gain AFTER I'd been fitted properly and subsequently gained two cup sizes)... For obvious reasons, I don't believe I can adequately review the fit. Back when my boobs could feasibly at least make it into the cups, I remember this model of bra being reasonably comfy, if (with hindsight) ill-fitting. This used to be my go-to - I had five of them in different colours, because it was the one bra that sort-of worked. Berlei seems to have decided to continue the prints on these to the wings, as well ...as on the inside of the wings (the part that lies against your skin and isn't visible during wear). This is an interesting contrast to all the full-bust bras I've tried, where only one extended the print on the cups to the wings and even then, left the insides of the wings plain (the CK Smoothie).
I have to also give Berlei credit for trying to make an extension onto their normal sizing system and resisting the urge to go for monster straps. This bra's got the thinnest straps of any that I own, so I can respect them trying to make something that won't be completely unwearable with tank tops, even though I can't wear this myself. The materials it's made with are also very soft and comfortable.
In short, although this bra is unwearable for me personally (I had a bit of a laugh trying it on), I am a fan of it on behalf of people who would actually be correctly fitted into its size range. Read more 176 more words
