This bra fits just like the Eyelet Lace style except it's not so good for tall roots. The Eyelet Lace has a lot of open space at the top edges of the cups but the Starlet Lace is more closed in at the top edges. Otherwise, it's not bad. If you have a shallow, broad rooted, and short rooted shape go for the Starlet Lace.
I picked this up on sale at Nordstrom. I got it because it's really soft and think it's really beautiful. Molded cups don't work for me( too wide and shallow), so I knew it would need some tweaking. It was cheap so I got it as an alteration project.
To help combat the wideness and shallowness, I took in the gore as much as possible. I bent the wires and they held shape pretty decently. Still too wide for me but better than it was. The band needed reducing, but since it is thin mesh, it works nicely for that. And finally I moved the straps in because they were extremely wide on me.
Not a perfect fit, but it's close and I wanted one molded cup bra in my bradrobe so here it is. It's soft, comfortable, and I love how it looks so I would call this project a success. It's perfect for when I want something comfortable but still good enough to go out with.
This is a beautiful bra, personally I should've ordered a 32E instead of 30DD, but with a band extender it fits fine. My only qualm is that, after only a couple weeks (of admittedly daily wear but with hand washing only) some of the edges are starting to fray, namely the piece between where the strap connects to the cup and the underwire on the right cup, but the problems I have with it are more from buying the wrong size and excessive use, so I really can't fault BJI, overall this is a great bra.
This bra would work perfectly for me as a strapless bra as the straps are in my armpits and not long enough. The wires are also pretty wide (like an inch too wide) which points my boobs to the side a bit. It seems like the wires have a lot of stretch (?) there is a horrible creaking sound when I put on and adjust the bra and the band is a touch tighter then I prefer (except for strapless bras)
This bra is weirdly creaky. Amazon reviews mentioned it, and wow, yes, it is a problem. It's not as noisy when it's being worn, but any move that stretches the cup makes the creaky noise. It's far more noticeable when handling it.
This bra fits, mostly. I can't see any obvious fit issues, but something about the fit bothers me. I think it's the way that the cups just barely fit me, and how any movement basically causes gaping. I expected it to fit since I've tried similar cuts by Betsy Johnson (the retro glamor, I think), and that one fit like a dream, except for the too ...large band and too loose straps. The straps were fine on the Starlet Lace, but the band was likewise too big. I tried it on on the tightest hook straight off, and it could have been tighter.
It's a cute enough design. It's quite comfortable, though I can't speak to long-term wearing, since I put it in the return pile.
It's a good bra for wide, shallow roots. I think I was just a tad too shallow for it, though perhaps it would work better during bloat week. Read more 88 more words
