This bra is so weird to me. The U shape of the wires mean it's narrow and I've never seen one of their narrower wires listed as a balconette before. The cup's shape looks like a full cup too. But it does not give me the downward sloping shape that a Bravissimo full cup does. It gives a somewhat minimized, rounded shape.
I wonder if I just needed a bigger cup size to accommodate my deep/narrow boob shape. I'm pretty happy with the nice wide, not too stretchy, not too stiff straps and all the lovely space near the gore for my inner full boobs. But the gore ...doesn't tack so I don't feel as stable in it and the cup even wrinkles just a tad so it bugs me quite a bit. It's also not as attractive as the one on the model (surprise, surprise) so at full price, I'm not sure if I'm keeping it.
It all shows up under shirts, the lining that is. It is of course comfortable and decent otherwise but I have become pickier in recent days. Read more 76 more words
This is a very comfortable bra! The band feels a bit loose on the loosest hook, but it stays in place, so maybe that's just a feeling. The cups fit well, it doesn't give a completely round shape, but not exactly pointy either and the wires are a really good width for me. The top of the cup has a small ribbon sewn unterneath, which isn't stretchy, but since it comes up high enough, it doesn't cut in. The colourway is just beautiful! It's a very pretty dark green shade, which goes really well with the leafy embroidery.
Now I just hope it lasts, cause I heard some Bravissimo bras tend to fall apart quickly...
