  1. This seems to fit pretty well. The wires are wide enough, and the general shape is good. It's a foam-dome, so I can't really tell 100% sure if there's gapping underneath, but there's no gapping on the topline or armpit areas.

    The mesh band material feels a bit flimsy, and the elastic doesn't seem top quality so I have questions about how long it'll last, but fit is the most important thing.

    Not a fan of the bows and junk either. Personal preference!

    • I have had mine for a year now and they are still in very good condition.

      hahaha...foam dome...never heard that one, I hope you don't mind if I plagiarize that.

    • thelittleone Plagiarize away. :) I can't remember where I got it, but I thought it was funny too!

      Saskia_C Great to hear! I will treat it carefully and have high hopes then.

    Didn't fit

    I was uncertain about this one when I first tried it on, as the band was incredibly tight and my breasts spilled out a little over the top. I thought maybe it would relax/stretch enough, but after a few weeks, that hadn't changed. AND I discovered that I wasn't scooping my breasts into my bras properly. When I did that, I decided that it was definitely the wrong size. Otherwise, it was comfortable with no itchiness or poking.

    32DD

    Fits

    My first attempt at finding a well fitting bra without adding inches to the band measurement to get my size. I tried on dozens of bras at Nordstroms and only found a few that seemed to fit my wide root/shallow breasts. The Betsey Johnson Stocking Stripe bra was the best fit by far for me. I've been wearing 34/36 A and B cups for decades and could never understand why I couldn't find anything that fit right. I've got excess tissue under my armpit that is finally in a wire wide enough to encompass it. There is a very slight quadboob effect on ... my larger breast in the 32DD of the Betsey Johnson Stocking Stripe. The 32DDD that I tried on fit perfectly but I was afraid that I wouldn't like how high the side goes up on the larger cup (possible chafing), so I'm trying out the 32DD for now to get used to my new fit. I'm anticipating the need to go up to a 32DDD in a few months anyway, so this has been a good place to start for me. For the first time ever, I fill up the inside of the cup and there is no gaping on the top edge of the bra. These bras are so comfortable and I'm loving the colors. I'm so sad to see that this bra is now discontinued and is being clearanced out of many online stores. My only slight con so far with these bras is that I get some creaking noises from them when I bend or twist my torso. It's very minor, though, so it's not a big deal to me.

    Fits

    Great fit, though it felt a bit tight at first I know it will stretch a bit soon with wear and wash. I just switched to 32DD/34D from wearing 36B/C cups and that is also why it feels so tight in comparison.

    For having seemingly even, inner full breasts, the line of the cup is right near/at the fullest part of my boobs. Despite this, quad boob is almost nonexistent even after a proper swoop and scoop. The Gore tacks nicely and is very comfortable.

    The wire is nice and wide and long, it goes past my armpit which is very comfortable for my wide roots. I can't believe I was trying to squeeze into B cups for the last 10+ years, even if the band size was 36.

    The style is cute, I love the partially transparent wings and band with the opaque striping.

      I'm glad you like the Betsey Johnson Stocking Stripe. I have been a Betsey Johnson fan for a long time and I have owned multiple bras in that brand. The band will indeed stretch out over time as Betsey Johnson bras are known that. Also, the Stocking Stripe runs larger in the cup than some other styles so if you are looking for other Betsey Johnson bras, try them in 32DD and 32DDD just in case.

      Thanks for the comment and recommendation for DDDs on the other Betsy Johnson styles. It completely makes sense, I really liked another Betsy Johsnon Balconet style bra but found in 32DD and 34D it wasn't quite large enough in the cups. I couldn't find it in a 34DD or 32DDD to try.

    • As far as I know, the only styles that come in 32DDD are the Retro Glamour and the Forever Perfect Demi bra.

    • Ah, great to know. I've added them to the list of styles to check out.

  5. Cute, nude color is a nice fair tone that matches my skin color nicely, lace ruffle across top of cups is soft and comfortable, band made of mesh material, might remove the three black bows as they might show through clothing, straps connect together in the back

    32DD

    Didn't fit

    This was a desperate impulse buy from Nordstrom Rack. I was excited by how pretty it looked and how comfortable it felt in the dressing room. Unfortunately, it doesn't remain so comfortable with regular wear. Basically, the cups are laughably wide and shallow and not suited to my shape in the least. Swoop and scoop doesn't work because it doesn't fit well enough to keep the tissue in place. When I do swoop and scoop, I end up with some quad-boob. The straps are VERY stretchy and not fully adjustable. I was able to wear it for a little while with it hooked into a racerback, but that ... put too much pressure near my neck. Despite the gore being low, it still pokes me. The band fit okay for me when I purchased it: it wasn't as firm as I would like, but I didn't have to fasten it on the tightest hook to get it tight enough - if that makes any sense.

    Overall this would be a bra to try if you have wide, shallow breasts, if you're shoulders aren't narrow or sloping, and if you like/don't mind very thin, stretchy straps. It didn't give me much uplift, so it wouldn't be very good for that. I might still use it when I need a plunge bra, but it certainly isn't suited to everday wear for me.

    This bra is too shallow and closed on top for me, also probably just too small. 30DDD would be more appropriate, but I would probably run into the same problems.

    Hasn't set fit

    Super cute. Bought for growing stepdaughter. Something I did notice is the band seems incredibly thin/cheap and very stretchy, I question how long it will hold up. Also, the cups kinda seem to point east to west all on their own.

    32DDD

    Didn't fit

    Shape is perfect for shallow breasts with wide root. Straps dig a little into my shoulder fats, but not enough to cause great discomfort. Band is a smidgen on the tight side, but is comfortable on the loosest hook. My size is 32DDD and I think next time I will go with 34DD in this brand. Great every day bra!

    I really wanted to like this bra. I think it's really cute and looks a little like a pin-up style. I also love the fact that there are hooks built in on the back to make it into a racerback. Unfortunately the cups were too big for me and it doesn't come in a smaller cup size.
