    34HH

    Hasn't set fit

    This is up to date my best fitting bra. It flattens my boobs so much that I'm actually having the same amount of projection as I had in my 34F Freya Millie and Pollyanna. I kind of miss the east and west spread I got used to now suddenly looking all BrasIHate in shape, but it is my shape so I better get used to it.

    This is the first bra I seem to be able to move around in and still having the same fit.

    I get a very subtle look, with an ever so slight hint of cleavage.

    This is my first bra that doesn't rest ... on breast tissue in the Center gore and while the center gore doesn't sit flash, due to the bra being ever a smidge too small it's not a problem really. Neither is the slight cutting in I have on my larger boob. It's kind of interesting now in the correct size beginning to see how big the difference is between my boobs.

    This bra will probably become too small pretty fast as I do have a feeling it actually can be a good migration bra. I would have never thought that about a half cup. But it comes pretty high up on me.

    The cup depth without stretching is 34, but I have a 35cm perimeter with the bra on so it stretches a little. It stretches just some milimeters above that when measuring over the knee.

    The wires stretches from 18.5-21 Not that bad really.

    The problems are the wires being just a tad bit to low in the bottom front. And the straps cutting in on the sides of course. But I can live with that too.

    And the straps. My god, the straps. They are very thick and very comfortable. Probably the most comfortable straps I've tried on a bra so far. But the bra is so firm I can almost wear it strapless :)

    It's vintage looking, it's very me and I will update this review in the future.

    • Branarchist Hi, I was searching for someone with similar measurements, and I stumbled across you and while you don't have similar measurements it seems like you are struggling to find a size and bra that fits.. I hope I can offer some advice I would suggest that you get a skype fitting with the ladies at butterflycollection.ca they offer skype fittings and since your sizes are all over the place maybe they can pinpoint your size a little better. Since you have a large array of sizes I think it would really be beneficial for you. I wish you the best of luck and I hope that this will at least steer you in the right direction.

    32HH

    Didn't fit

    Oh @Mademoiselle, I love you so much, you are so gorgeous, and in possibly my favourite colour way ever (the matching pants are SO cute). But you don't return that love, you mock me and make my boobs look all wrong, but not wrong enough off bat that I kick you to the curb - you tease me by starting off making me look all pretty and wenchy, and then as the minutes (note, minutes, not hours :( ) tick by, you leave me looking very much like a teenage boy, devoid of any bosom at all, other than a weird quad boob lump ... thing. Sigh.

    This is a pretty comfy bra, but as we all probably know by now, Mademoiselle is *shallow*. With a capital SH. The wires and cups extend around to just on my back, which feels odd and is one of the reasons this doesn't give any projection at all, but it combines with the shallow cup to give my (probably a 32F boob measurement now) weird quad boob - how does that happen on something this huge? I've tried to alter the cups slights by bending the wires, but haven't managed to do much, but this has possibly altered the measurements slightly.

    As can be seen by the photos this band stretches a bit, for a 32 I think its comes up a bit big - the back view isn't the most flattering, as for reasons only known to my weird head I did an odd holding my arms out in a bizarre manner for this shot, which gave me weird lumpy back fat above the band - to be fair to the bra it doesn't really do that when your arms aren't all twisted in a bizarre manner.

    ETA: This review was written when I was bigger in the bust. My boobs are a sad former shadow of themselves now, so don't look at any current fitting bras on my profile in regards to this, as its horribly out of date for my boobies now (hence listing it).

    30DD

    Didn't fit

    I exchanged the 28F I ordered originally for this 30DD because I thought the band was too tight -- not because of my ribcage, but because of the way the tension distorted the very flexible wires and flattened the cups -- and the cups, when relaxed, slightly roomy. On the day I received the bra and fitted it my breasts were slightly on the fuller side though. I will revisit this review in case the fit changes over the next few days.

    General comments:

    (copied from my original review of the 28F version) I am finding that horizontal cut half cups are best for my shape, so I couldn't resist ... ordering the Mademoiselle. It's a bit too ornamental for my taste, but the subtle colour scheme appealed to me anyway. Also, the idea of possibly getting a complete lingerie set is tickling :)

    Bra description:

    (copied from my original review of the 28F version) I must say, this bra is even prettier in person that it appeared from the online photos: the 'blush' colour is the palest of pinks, which works really beautifully underneath the black lace overlay. On pale complexions it actually appears close to nude. The black lace itself consists of a delicate all-over floral pattern on tulle with a wide, detailed, yet flat embroidery border along the cup edges. Bold, embroidered parallel lines finish off the design. The pattern is perfectly mirrored on both cups, a detail that pleases me greatly (CK Entice, I'm looking at you!). The wings are made of a single layer of black powernet and the edges are finished with decorative elastic. The centre gore is embellished with a fairly large black organza bow, a delicate piece of 'blush' ribon and a small black rose. The strap connections are adorned with a simple 'blush' ribbon bow and small black rose. The straps are fairly wide, fully adjustable and feel lovely and soft. Instead of rings, sliders are used to connect the straps to the wings in the back. All findings are black coated metal. The bra is unlined, unpadded, completely synthetic, and very light weight.

    (copied from my original review of the 28F version) One thing one doesn't see mentioned often in a bra description is smell -- this is the first time I myself find it necessary to mention and unfortunately not for positive reasons: the moment I opened the (beautifully wrapped) package a strong 'plasticky' whiff caught my nostrils. Really, this bra smells so strongly of plastic that's it's quite off-putting for me -- I'm terribly sensitive to smells and this one is giving me slight headache. I can only hope it lessens with time.

    Bra fit:

    Where the 28F seemed to fit when I put in on for the first time, this one obviously doesn't. The centre gore doesn't stay flat -- it hovers about a centimetre away from my sternum. The wires are still too wide though: even though they are decidedly less distorted from the band tension, there's a significant amount of space between my breast root and the wire. I'm suspecting that with narrower wires the cup volume would probably have been just right, but as it is, the whole construction is simply too wide and shallow for my shape.

    The band feels very comfortable. It doesn't seem to be riding up at all, which surprises me as stretched it measures about 7 cm more than what I've come to consider ideal. The straps are wide and soft. Despite the ill fit, I must say the whole bra is extremely comfortable. My only gripe comfort-wise is the connection between the straps and the wings: for some reason this point interferes with the movement of my shoulder blades.

    Conclusion:

    This is an odd bra. It's so comfortable that I'm tempted to exchange it (again) for a 30E, although there are many things I don't like about it:

    - it doesn't give the same uplift as I get from Ewa Michalak HM or Masquerade Rhea (but it is still a nice shape and could be considered just a bit more subtle)
    - the wires are ridiculously flexible and too wide for my shape (but they are hardly noticeable whilst wearing the bra)
    - the band is looser than what I have become accustomed to (but it doesn't ride up and feels very comfortable)
    - it's completely synthetic (but to me the materials seem much nicer than the materials used by Curvy Kate and they don't seem to irritate my sensitive skin)
    - it smells horribly of plastic.

    In addition to the fact this bra is crazy comfortable, though, there's also the fact it actually looks really nice AND it comes with a choice of knickers and suspenders ... to exchange, or not to exchange?

Really, this bra smells so strongly of plastic that's it's quite off-putting for me -- I'm terribly sensitive to smells and this one is giving me slight headache. I can only hope it lessens with time.

    Bra fit:

    In a previous life, I would have said this bra fits me well enough. Now, however, I'm quit sure it doesn't. The main reason is the wires. Oh, these wires ... ! They are some of the most flexible, least stable wires I've ever encountered. They are so flexible that they distort to the point where the centre gore barely stays put on my sternum. They also stretch way too far back under my arms and the bottoms of the cups are visibly flattened. One could argue that this happens because this 28 band is too tight for my 69cm/27" underbust (!) -- I'm obviously using part of the cups as 'band' -- but these wires really ARE extremely flexible. As to tightness: the band actually FEELS perfectly perfect, although I can SEE it obviously isn't. I don't know how a band size up would work with wires this flexible ... wouldn't the whole thing simply feel too loose?

    Having said that, I think the shape is otherwise reasonably nice. As it is, the cups are quite shallow and flattened this much they give little projection, but they do indeed suit my shape and with sturdier wires they would almost certainly look *really* good. I AM tempted to exchange this bra for a band size up and a cup size down just to see what happens. I'm thinking I could always replace the wires ... the thing that makes me pause, though, is the high level of 'syntheticness' of this bra. Do I really want to wear a 'plastic' bra?

    Conclusion:

    What to do, what to do? Exchange and perhaps fiddle around with replacement wires or just return and give up on the thing? I'm impressed with the looks of this bra, but not with the quality of the materials used -- at £32 this is NOT a cheap bra, and I'm really not convinced it's worth the money ...

    Edited To Add:

    I tried this bra with and extender and with the worst of the strain off the band and wires the cups definitely look better. It also shows they are actually too roomy. With an extender the band definitely feels looser, but it may be worth a shot after all as I DO need unpadded bras more than anything ...

    Incredibly, ridiculously beautiful. Also very comfortable, I've worn it on long walks and it kept me from getting the usual back/neck/shoulder pain. Wires come up very high and smooth in center, very nice.

    I found this bra gave me a very smooshed shape, and I'm too new at understanding bras to know why. The wires are quite wide, which I found quite comfortable, but I think the cups themselves just didn't have enough projection for me.

    The colour and design of this bra is gorgeous.
    I get quadraboob, so probably need a cup up, plus I think my boobs need an ever so slightly more projected cup. Otherwise it was comfortable.

    The cups are slightly too big--they're not filled completely at the top. The straps attach to the bra too far to the side--they dig into the side of my armpit. The band can be fastened comfortably on the tightest hooks.

  10. I really like the cups of this bra. As long as I scoop into the bra once in a while, the center gore is fine but after a while if I'm working and unable to rescoop, the center gore digs in. I found that the band of the bra stretched out quickly and started off a little too big for me. If I were to get this bra again I would get a 36G. I think that if I got a better fit in the band I'd be able to stay in the cups better.
    I call this bra my pirate wench bra because it is shallow in the cups and gives me a good wench shelf look. It's my boyfriends favorite in look and I like the look a lot.
