I absolutely adore this bra <3 it is soo comfy - I feel safe and secure thanks to the wide straps and underband. The cups are very supportive and uplifting and the cotton fabric keeps me cool and fresh. The only problem is the shape its very east - west, so I guess it needs some form of side support. any suggestions on how Icould add that myself?
I'm a 30G and this bra fit me like a glove in my size. It's true to size in that the band feels tight but not too tight and the cups are perfect. One of things I love about this bra is that it's 60% cotton. I also love how supportive it is. This is a very industrial bra. It's not exactly pretty and won't cause explosions in the bedroom but it's the kind of bra you'd want to wear if you have a ton of errands to run, including laundry and possibly moving and heavy lifting. The sheer part of the bra is a little stiff but ...it's perfect and lies flat against my breasts. The shape it gives my breasts is very pointy, like a torpedo, and I generally prefer a rounder shape. But once you put a shirt or blouse on, it's completely different. There is absolutely no pointy shape and in fact, it has a very slimming effect. I look leaner and more supported in this bra and it's quickly become my favourite, especially for business meetings and such. This bra is extremely comfortable in that there was no digging whatsoever by any wires. The straps did not dig into my shoulders and the band gripped my ribcage without causing me to suffocate. If you have soft breasts then this could be the perfect bra. I often get this gap at the top of the cup because I'm not full on top. However, with this bra, that problem does not exist at all. It really feels like the bra was tailored to my breasts. I love this bra and highly recommend it. I bought two more, especially with the price being so phenomenal at brastop.com. It's worth every penny!
Note: the black version of this bra runs a tiny bit tighter both in band and cup. It wasn't enough for me to go up a size but if you're on the edge of a band or cup, then you may want to go up in size if buying the black version. Read more 238 more words
As a woman with a larger bust I cannot praise these bras enough. It is such a shame that Best Form discontinued them.. The reason this bra is so great is because it addresses an issue with larger busts that other bra manufacturers dont seem to be aware of or care to address. This bra has deeper cups. The deeper cup draws the breasts out & gives a far more svelte appearance when people are looking at you from the front. So instead squashing your breasts down and out to the sides with badly shaped cups & thus spreading them across your upper arms which makes your boobs look ...HUGE and makes you look like a 'big bertha', the Best Form Rebeccas deep cups make you look slimmer. I have huge boobs & a tiny waist and small back, this bra is great for that as it keeps me looking slightly more in proportion. by providing deeper cups so your boobs arent squashed out to the sides. I think alot of thought went into this bra when they created it. Its such a shame other manufacturers dont give it as much thought when making bras for larger busts. Read more 87 more words
I used to love this bra. It was all I wore through my teens after being fitted into it at 16. I had it in a wide range of sizes, everytime I could snatch one of these babies up cheap on ebay that was remotely close to my size it was mine. Starting out with 40DD, going to 42D, 42DD, 44DD, 46D, 48C,44F,... When I finally found I needed a larger cup and a tighter band, the first thing I did was order this bra in 42G (UK), the cup and bandsize combo closest to my size.
The bra is a fullcup and the cup of this bra ...runs huge. The bottom cup is nicely hollowed out and perfect for my bottom-heavy boobs. Sadly I cannot fill out the upper cup in the 42G, so the bra sags and gives a ... not so great shape. Scratch that, it looks like I wear no bra at all.
The fabric is a very soft cotton that feels great on the skin. Sadly this is also one of the pros and cons of this bra, bc the cotton-heavy material stretches a lot. Since I wore this bra in a 44DD when I really needed a 40H(UK), a stretchy cup was great. But it is an epic fail in 42G.
However the real killer are the straps. The cup is cut too high under the arms, it cuts in horribly in the armpit area. I am in constant pain in this bra. I already had this problem in 44F, but in 42G it really is impossible to bear.
In 44DD the cup was too small, so my breasts pulled the fabric and the strap out of my armpit area. A friend of mine who wears it a 38J tried it in 42G, on her the cup was too small - and so the fabric got pulled out of the armpit area.
I would say this is a great bra if only for the dratted strap. Also if you are wearing it chances are high you are stuck in the wrong size. Read more 241 more words
Protrudes more than I do, but less than average. Doesn't quite cover my entire root, but it's not a huge deal. The nipple area wrinkles a bit. Doesn't gather up my tissue into one place, so I remain quite spread out.
This bra is soft, light and comfortable. However the band runs big like 32 bands, and I was able to fasten it on the third hook the moment I've got this. Besides that, it's a nice T-shirts bra which does its job. Cup seems little big too, I'm somewhere between 30DD and 30E but more to 30E, and 30DD (80E in French size) was just fit. I compared it with other Lepel bras that I have, and its wire length and cup volume was similar with those of Lepel Matilda & Balcony 30E. It was way bigger than 30DD of those two. The cup shape goes well with my wide and ...shallow boobs. When wore under a T shirt, it gives you a green shape - can be pointy to someone but not too much. Overall it's a nice bra and I'm keeping it, but consider sizing down both band and cup size (like 28e instead of 30e) when you want to try it on.
additional info Since the band was too big for me, I've shortened the band to make it fit like "29" bands - which, in result, gave me quad boobs. I guess cups are true to size. They were just mistaken because of the loose band. Read more 97 more words
Ne careful. The full cup is really annoying to me. It is too small and that band is too Loose. I love The style, but The 34 d did not fit as well and as a wear a 28 band thos panama bra would ne top Loose even in Size 28.
I feel very secure and confident in this bra, it just feels very well made and gives me good support without cutting or digging. It is super comfy and quite sexy looking imo - black, lacy, sheer - to look at it off you wouldn't think it could give such good support. wore it outside today and was excellent - like invisible support - so comfy yet secure. I would like my bust to be lifted higher but I think tightening the straps just a little will prob fix that. I totally recommend this bra https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
This bra is ridiculously comfortable. Whether this is because it's used and broken in, I don't know, but the moment I put it on it's easy to forget I'm wearing it. It is absolutely perfect for my shallow shape, giving a round and natural shape while the top of the cup fits snugly. It's supportive and the mocha colourway is prettier than I expected. And to harken back to the comfort again, the material used makes this the softest bra I've encountered. I've ordered it in charcoal too and hope it will be just as comfortable.
This bra is very supportive and comfortable, and doesn't show through under clothing. It's colour is more pleasant and flattering than I was expecting. Flattering, round shape and very comfortable material, just not suited to my shape.
My mom owns this bra, she likes it very much for the support and shape it gives her. Since it is very sheer and airy, it is perfect for hot summer days. The only bra that I've found that is similarily breathy is the Freya Rio. Sadly the lace rubs on her nipples. She cannot wear this bra for longer than two hours max. for this reason. Update: Looking at her I think the main reason the lace rubs is because the wires are too wide and the band a bit too loose. She is more of a 36GG but in denial, she does not want any "weird double letter sizes", so she keeps buying 38G. In the Bestform 740 this results in a too wide band. Together with the wide wires this makes the cup feel loose and the lace rubs.
I like the shape of this bra. I feel perky in it and it holds me up high. But because the wing height is so high I feel like my armpits push the bra down while I'm wearing it. Also, even on the smallest size the band is too loose.
Constantly needs adjusting to put it back up where it belongs. It is comfortable so long as the wires fit right up where they're supposed to. But it slips down too easily.
I purchased this bra because it looked good and because it was on sale. The fabric is gorgeous and not uncomfortable to wear (with a few washes, it will be perfectly fine). However, the straps are very wide set, which makes the shape of the cups just a little off. This would probably be a great bra for those who are full-on-top.
Super cute style, but my God those underwire, it's like they were designed to hold a lightbulb. Clearly designed for top heavy tata's as the cup wrinkles like crazy on the top. Band fits snugly, gore is flat if not a little pokey. Would be great in a smaller cup size, maybe with wider underwire.
