    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!

    Fits

    This 32DDD version of this bra fits me a little better than the 32DD Betsey Johnson Stocking Stripe bras that I have. It encompasses more of my breast tissue and I don't have the slight quadboobing that I get from the 32DD's. The only problem that I have with the cup size up is the height of the cups. They come up so high that they are right under the crease of my arm pit, which is a little uncomfortable. It also causes the cups to gape a little when I put both arms forward. My arm movement actually pushes the top of ... the cup forward. I had the same thing happen when I tried on the 32DDD size of the Natori Hidden Glamour Underwire bra. I don't have any problems with any of my 32DD bras, just when I try to size up a cup. Not sure what I'm going to do if I get sized out of my 32DD bras. Most of the cup shapes that fit my shallow shape on top are plunge or three-quarter style cup shapes that come up higher on the outer edges. Full coverage cups that are farther away from my armpit just don't fit my breast shape well, and half-cup balconette styles are hit or miss. I'm starting to realize that I'm built a little higher up on the chest wall than I realized. Oh well, guess I'll figure out what to do when it becomes more of a necessity to size up to 32DDD!

    • I think at that point you'll have to find a different brand. That often happens as our sizes change

    • So, are there different brands and models that fit shallow shapes that don't come up higher on the outer side of the cup? That seems to be a defining feature for what style of cup fits shallow breasts.

    • Sometimes half cups do better. And just different brands sometimes fit differently. and then there's always the custom-fit cut-lower cups from Comexim.

    • I'm sad this one didn't work out for you. I will say that if you're having trouble with the side wall and wings being too tall, and you want to try the half-cup styles I have, you probably won't have much luck with them. I had problems with Orange In A Glass and quad boob, but never had issue with the sides being too tall, and a lot of my Fauve half-cups (and the Freyas I've tried) come up even higher. For me, that was great! For you, it sounds like it may or may not.

      Natori works beautifully for me, for reference. I think I have more projection than you do, though.

      Oh, I wouldn't say it didn't work out for me. I love the color of this one, such a pretty and intense blue. The armpit thing is just a minor irritant, but it doesn't make the bra unwearable by any means. It will be going into my rotation of bras to wear.

      It just made me more aware of the problem of needing slightly shorter cups on the top outside edge so they don't end up in my armpit crease. The irony is that the taller edge of the cup along the center of my chest contains my really soft breast tissue much better than the 32DD cups.

      I actually love having higher wings on the side of the band. That plus wider wires helps contain all of the breast tissue that actually sits under my armpit, which is at least a third of my breasts, unfortunately. I just don't need my Tail of Spence in the cup!

      Looking at the pictures of the front on shot of both of us wearing this bra it's really obvious that you've got more length from the bottom edge of the underwire to your shoulder line than I do. The top of the cup comes up much higher on me. It kind of looks like it's trying to crawl right over the top of my shoulder. lol

    • I did notice in the photos that the distance to your shoulder looks a lot shorter than mine. I also noticed in recent photos that I tend not to notice when side walls are almost-in-my-armpit (as opposed to actually in it), even though in photos they look SO HIGH, so that definitely affects both our perspectives!

      I am glad you like it! The blue is why I got it. It was never technically perfect, because I have tall roots and it cut me off sometimes on period days, but I just couldn't say no to the color. :)

    Used to fit

    My shape: slightly shallow teardrop/FOB with super wide/tall roots and very close-set tissue in the middle.

    This review is for the Satellite colorway.


    The blue and the stripes on this bra are irresistible, I tell you. It is a lot brighter than it looks on some photos on other sites, but the Nordstrom site has a pretty accurate color depiction. It really is that vibrant! I love it.

    Super comfortable, not itchy, and the cups are moulded foam, so there is padding, but not too much. The plunge is great, and I am really pleased that I can wear Betsey Johnsons now (they used to be too big in the band) because they are all adorable.

    I am really in love with this model's design, mostly because the stripes are super cute, but also because it reminds me of a bra I once loved and could not afford (a Passionata Passio set that had the white-on-ivory stripes and looked sort of pseudo-Victorian).

    This model is super comfy and soft on the inside of the moulded foam cups. The stretchy crochet lace across the top might be a little on the tight side, but it's really not noticeable and it will relax after a wash or two, I'm sure.

    Almost perfect. There is the teeniest, tiniest bit of overflow on the top cup on the right but not enough to be problematic. It doesn't even show through a thin shirt. I'm pretty comfortable calling this a fit. Very comfortable bra, no pokey or scratchy parts. And it's really cute.

    ETA: Unfortunately after I few hours of wear, I started to get a pretty major quadboob. Not a fit after all :(

    This bra is too shallow for me, but I wish it fit. I love the way it looks!

    I want this bra to fit so badly, but it's just too shallow at the bottom of the cup for me. I love the look of the bra but it just doesn't work for me!

    This bra was comfortable, but the fit wasn't right for me. Too much coverage at the top, maybe? It was also a size too small--or smaller than what I'm learning is my true size. And I wasn't crazy about the colors.

    This is a cute bra that to be honest I don't think works for me. So close and yet so far! First off, the band seemed really stretchy and I had to put it on the first hooks in order to get a snug fit. My underbust measures about 31" snugly and 30" pulled super tight so usually I have to try both 30 and 32 bands depending on the brand. This bra also seemed kind of …flimsy? But that may be because I'm getting more used to Freyas and such. Or maybe it was because it was so stretchy. That said, it was very comfortable.
    However, the biggest ... problem area was the (I'm guessing) width of the cups. While the underwires seemed to come up under my underarms enough, when I aggressively scooped and swooped, there was some quadboobage and also the bottoms of the cups didn't feel right, like my breast tissue wasn't getting to the bottom of them.
    It's a shame because I really liked the striped design, so I'll probably look for a different brand with a similar fabric pattern!
