    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.

    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.

    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.

    White/Nude color is great for under lighter colored shirts. Fits wide root, shallow breasts well. Bra makes minor creaking noises when worn.

    Great fit for shallow breasts with wide roots. Slight creaking noises from bra during sudden movements.

    Much brighter pink then most online pictures show, almost neon pink. Fit is nearly perfect. Slight quadboob on larger breast. Wires are wide enough to encase the tissue under my armpit instead of squashing it. May have to go up a cup size after a few months as I have extra tissue that is finally in a bra cup that fits for the first time ever. Minor creaking noises from bra with sudden movements.

    This bra is very soft and mostly comfortable but unfortunately takes on the color of dark shirts and becomes dingy very quickly. The band is very strong and resistant to overstretching and the straps are thick enough that they are comfortable and do not cut into the shoulders. My only complaint is that I wish it provided more lift. It is comfortable for supporting my breasts where they are, but I am much more bottom full than top full and could use a bit more lift!

    When I first bought this bra, it fit very well, but again, I should have paid better attention to it's washing needs and not washed it in a machine. (Even on a cold setting in a garment bag - should have at least been doing a delicate cycle! Permanent press aint good enough.) The band has stretched out quite a bit already (though I have been hang drying it) and the underwires are beginning to poke me in the sternum pretty badly - by the end of the day the spot is red and sore. Such a shame, because this bra is a darling design.

    Main con besides my inability to take care of things is that, even if you did a machine wash on a proper delicate cycle, lint from any other garments gets trapped under the top layer of soft mesh which, in the light pink color, shows pretty obviously.
