    I took the plunge!
    I've never had problems with high gores so I've been a longtime fan from balconnet and ful cup styles as I like to feel contained and secure specially at work. Thing is great fitting bras gave me the confidence to finally embrace my boobs en consider low cut necklines never before on my personal clothes radar. When I saw the unpadded Elise and its subtle frill free design I had to try it.

    The cups are made of one-sidedly printed fabric and finished at the upper border with elastic mesh. The material overall feels lighter and suppler as for example in the Panache Jasmine ... Balconnet Bra (6951) but nevertheless this bra brings my breasts in and stays equally put troughout an entire working day. It is surprisingly comfortable.
    Never thought so low a gore would do the trick for me but it turned out I really like the natural tear-drop shape this bra gives me.

    The 1'' wide gore is definitely something to consider if this is your fitting pittfall. But for my FoB wideset breasts the shape of this bra works pretty well even if I could use maybe a tad more projection at the bottom.

  2. This bra is an unlined plunge with stretch mesh on the top half of the upper section.

    My shape: I am fairly projected, with fairly narrow roots, tall roots, and I lack fullness above the apex of my breasts. I am also close-set.

    This plunge is a pretty great fit on me. The wires are the right side of narrow - I also measured how narrow the cups would be if this was not a plunge (so I imagined the gore continuing higher) and got 4.9-5 inches. The wires are also firm, so they do not open up much when the bra is worn. The shape of these wires is ... more of a swoosh than UU.

    The gore is somewhat wide, which is a problem I have with Bravissimo's bras generally, but it is *just* low enough that it is comfortable nonetheless.

    Cups: these cups have a LOT of immediate depth, and a fair amount of depth at the apex. The top section is a bit closed, so this style would not suit FOT shapes or most tall-rooted types. I can get away with it because I am shallow where it closes and the stretch mesh stops it from cutting in - if you have upper fullness generally you'll likely not suit this bra. Looking at the cup construction, I think the shape could work for centre-full breasts.

    The fabric is firm/not at all stretchy, yet supple, so this bra gives good support, but will mould a little to the shape of the breasts. The fabric is also smooth, so this works well as a t-shirt bra.

    Band is on the tight side of TTS, as I find with most Bravissimo own brand bras (unlined ones). This one stretches to around 27-27.5 inches before it feels strained (the Mia was similar, as was the Becca bra of theirs). This suits me because my snug varies between 26-27.5, I find roomier 28s don't last long before I need to hook on the tightest hooks to keep the band in place, even with handwashing. So smaller 28 wearers and 26s would get on well with this one.

    Look: the bra is simple, elegant in a low-key way. The gore is adorned with a metal triangle shape rather than a bow, which gives it a lovely, modern look. It's unfussy but interesting, I really like it. The matching briefs are ever so cute, too, with a small triangle cut-out on the back. The back is also edged with the same stretch mesh used in the bra, so no double-bum, no VPL.

    Material feels cheap. I sized up in this one, but there is still not enough projection at the wire for me. Hardware is cheap; hooks are loosely attached.

    I loooove this bra. I love that it's a plunge, so I get a firm tack without it bothering me and pushing my tissue out of the way, which happens to me in higher gores with hard wires (if the wires are soft, I get a soft tack).
    The straps are comfortable, and I like that they are closer to the centre of the bra in the back, than to the sides. Due to this, they do show under some of my dresses, but it's great for summer tops. It's very comfortable, and the rosy nude tone, while it doesn't match my skin tone, looks nude under white and ... thin clothes, since I'm quite fair.
    The band and cups fit very well, even though the cups are a bit too wide, but it's not a problem. They wrinkle a little on the sides, but it's not noticeable unless the bra is visible on the sides (which I avoid).

    It's somewhat uncomfortable for lounging, though, so I avoid wearing it if I know I'm going to do so, because then the wires dig into my skin. It is very comfortable for daily wear though, if you're doing anything else other than lounging, even if you're very active.

    My new favourite! Light, unobtrusive, supportive enough for day-to-day wear (if not for jogging), surprisingly minimising. I also personally love the triangle. Creates a somewhat pointed shape without much lift. Note that wires are stiff and cup sizes run small. I've heard rumours that this bra isn't too durable, so I'll update this in a month or so to let you know if it's falling apart.
