    Such a pretty bra - just not quite the right shape for my breasts. I'm FoT with a lot of center fullness, and while I fill the cups well, as with every other bra I own - even if it's 2-3 cups too small - I have some gaping near the top of the cup where the strap is sewn in.

    Adorable ditsy floral pattern, powder blue straps, 3 clasp band, plunge-style cups. Compared the Satine (the padded version from Bravissimo) Maisie's cups are not as wide-set in the middle and the wires are a bit narrower. The band is a Bravissimo 30, notably a bit tighter than ... the Freya 30's I'm used to, which are notoriously larger, more like a 32. The Bravissimo 30 feels good to me.

    Comfort is great, I'm wearing this now even though the shape I get could be better. Band is nice and firm, straps adjust all the way so I can hike the girls up when needed!

    All in all, a beautiful bra, I'm just a bit too narrow and full in the center - so my boobs tend to fall inwards throughout the course of the day. If you do well with plunges, I highly recommend this one!

      I have this problem with Bravissimo bras too. Although they are meant to be good for FOB, I am even to full on top, but the important part here is I am short rooted so therefore I fit well into the cups ( could be better right in the centre due to centre fullness, I tend to overspill / quad a little) but I don't have tall enough breast tissue to fill the top of the cup where it meets the strap, and if I did then it probably wouldn't fit as I would then quad as it would be too closed on top.

      I hope that makes sense? I still like my Alanas as they are really comfy and I haven't had any wire problems, but I do find Cleos (Marcie, kira, erin ) fit me better and give more uplift as they are cut for a shorter root.

    • and yes, centre fullness means I cant plunge either! depending on where you need the low cut, half cups can be good as they are the same height at the gore to support the centre, or if I need the "plunge" I wear a panache idina plunge which isn't quite as low in the gore as others and keep an eye on it through the day.

    • Wow, bravo - thanks so much for your insight! I've never really understood what in the world short vs. tall roots is about, but it seems to explain why despite having what I consider to be enormous boobs which are definitely NOT saggy or dropping, I still can't quite fill out the tops of most cups. Good grief! *mind - blown*

      So appreciate the rec's - esp. the idina plunge. As for the Cleos, I am not sure if I just ordered the wrong size, but they seemed to be TOO short for me. :p

      The Marcie seemed to be a good possibility in terms of fit, but the construction wasn't very comfortable - lots of digging in with the underwire, scratchy heavy straps, etc. Does it soften up with wear?

      Anything else that works for you? :) Thanks again for your help!

    • I'm afraid that's pretty much all of my bradrobe! Panache Floris may be good for you as it is based on the Cleo style but has a thicker band and is perhaps slightly taller - I find it not quite as good for me for that reason so may be good for you (I think Olivia is based on floris too but I'm not sure how they compare).

      I have read on here that some of the Elomi plunges can be ok with centre fullness but if I remember correctly they only start at a 34 or 36 so you would be sized out. I don't know if they are based on any others from fantasie or fauve though.

      sorry, that's about it from me. Good Luck

    • Oh and I prefer Minnie to Marcie although not sure why!

    • bravo - Well, at the weight I'm gaining weight, it's not impossible that I may be into the 34 range in a few more months, so I'll def keep the Elomi plunges as an option in future.

      Thanks again for your insights and suggestions! :)

      bonjourhi :) True - nothing wrong with being a 34 - I've just always been 28-30. So for my body, that's an indicator I'm putting on a lot of weight - as is expected if all goes well over the next several months. ;-)

      OMG, I laughed at your second comment.....you do kinda have a point there - but - honest engine, even some of the ones I posted DO actually gape a bit around the straps, I just may not have shot the right angle. But I take your point!!! lolol

    It looked alright. At first.
    But it did nothing to lift or shape, and it really pulled my boobs downwards and outward. Also slight tendency to look pointy.
    I wore it for a few hours and I got horrible back pains and muscle tension. Also had to readjust ALL THE TIME, since my boobs tried to escape upwards and inwards. Half my boob would literally hang out of it, towards the center.
    No cleavage what do ever. Slightly lifted, but made me look bigger with clothes since the cups are so far apart.
    Really tight at the top of the cup, but a little wrinkly at the middle/bottom.
    Will probably work a lot better for bottom heavy breasts.
    Mine simply wouldn't corporate with this bra.
