Etta is one of my favorite bras ever. I love the dainty floral print, the super soft lightly padded cups, and the smooth satin finish. It worked surprisingly well for my pendulous, FoB breasts and short roots. The 28G was too big in the cup after losing some weight and the 28F - Bravissimo » Etta Longline (LN412) was too small. It's now my goldilocks bra as I think I need a 28FF for the fit to be just right. The three-part, padded plunge style is reminiscent of a Comexim plunge bra. I've put more details and a full review of the fit of both sizes on my blog, plus a brief review of the 28FF - Bravissimo » Satine Bra (AU15), the cut on which Etta is based, for comparison. I hope to try the new pink colorway as well.
This cup construction is PERFECT. They fit me like how I wish my Comexim plunges would fit. I will definitely be picking up a Satine after trying this.
The wires are nicely narrow and cups are deep enough and shockingly don't gape on my short roots. They are very soft and lined with cotton. The wire channels are covered in a very soft material as well.
The band construction is similar to a Freya longline, it doesn't continue very far below the cups in the front and has no boning to keep it straight so it wrinkles on me.
My problem with this bra? As soon as I ...looked at it, I knew the sizing was amiss--this band is very large. It lays at 28 in and stretches to 34, making it run a whole band size large. Definitely size down in the band. I will have to contemplate whether to exchange it for a 30FF.
As a note, the panties run a bit large as well, again like Freya sizing. I ordered the large but I definitely could have gotten away with a medium. Read more 78 more words
