My shape: Low set, soft, narrow and short rooted, slightly centre full and pendulous.
I've wanted this bra for quite some time, but wasn't sure how it would fit or what size to try, so I was glad to see it pop up on bratabase. I decided to give it a go. Pre ABTF I used to only wear push up plunges but, since finding ABTFs, I find that half cups and balconnettes give me a better shape (less pointy). I do like plunges though...
Anyways, this one has some slight signs of wear on the gore and band, but the cups and straps are in really good shape. I ...think the satiny material is really nice, and the bra is light. I like that it is made of satin material because it'll slip off my shirt instead of making a bra tent. The shape it creates is fairly round.. a little bit pointy on me, but then again, this bra is slightly too small on me. I get some bubbling on my centre tissue. Perhaps with a tiny bit bigger cup I would get a more rounded profile. Still, it's pretty good compared to some plunges I've tried.
The comfort is great... like I said, it's a nice light bra with a satiny exterior. It's good quality, but I wouldn't say it feels high end. The band is stretchy though, and too big for me. I tried it on the tigest hooks, which works for me, but then I have no more hooks to use if it stretches anymore. Not sure if that's because it's used or just because the band comes stretchy. I have a feeling it's probably a bit of both. The straps are very adjustable, even on my tall frame. The black flower pattern is pretty and I can match it to a bunch of different colour bottoms, which I like.
overall, I marked it as non-fitting, but will keep it and wear it (especially on my pre-ovulation days). I don't need a bra to be 100% in every way to be happy with it. As long as it's wearable and mostly fits, I'm happy! Read more 248 more words
This is my best bra at the moment. It's gorgeous, comfortable and fits well. I've had it for a few months and it was great to wear from the first time I tried it on. I bought it full price (about £30) and don't regret a penny.
The fabric is soft and feels great against my skin. The floral design is extremely pretty, though it does show through lighter fabrics. The smoothness of the material means that it doesn't show as patterning through my shirts. I find it great to wear under opaque fabrics.
I like that it's so low cut, and that the gore is so tiny. My breasts ...are fairly close together, so I struggle to find bras that won't into my tissue on either side. This one poses no problem whatsoever.
In all other aspects, the fit is great. the band is maybe a bit looser than it could be, but I honestly don't mind as it doesn't ride up or stop holding my breasts up properly. It just means it's comfortable, and it hasn't stretched out yet. My breasts fill the cups nicely, and I have no spillage or quad boob at all with this model. I also like that the wire is sort of cut low under the armpits, so it doesn't dig in or wrap around too far under my ribcage. Read more 117 more words
I saw this bra in the Bravissimo summer catalogue a few weeks ago, thought how pretty it was, and dismissed it as not worth trying because Bravissimo's own brand balconettes and half-cups are appallingly bad fits for me. But then last week when I was putting in an order for a new Panache Envy Balconnet Bra (7285) I decided to add this one on since the returns are free, and to my astonishment, it fits! It's remarkably comfortable too - so much so, in fact, that I'm going to order the regular Satine as well to take the place of my now sadly much too small ...Ewa Michalak 3D Wodzianka bra 70DD - Ewa Michalak » 3d Wodzianka (504) . I could possibly have gone up a size to the 30G to avoid getting any hint of quad-boob, but I find I prefer occasional quadding to gapping when I lean forward, which I suspect the 30G would give me on my smaller side.
The flower design is very bright, and it has a small button on the centre gore, which makes a nice change from the usual bows. This bra does have one very peculiar feature, though: a fold of net just below the hem at the top of the cups. I can't see that it serves any purpose other than to make the design more cluttered, and it may well show up under tighter clothes. Read more 131 more words
I specifically made a stop into Bravissimo while in the UK to buy some of these! I wanted black and tan and also got a wonderful dark floral print! They are much more rigid than my old, worn Satine and they feel like better quality too!
I know the Satine has a big following, and I can understand why. Unfortunately, this bra is probably a size too large--my breasts do not fill the top of the cups. I love the low gore, rounded profile, narrow cups, and satiny smooth fabric. I'm tempted to buy it in a smaller size. This bra seems like a great substitute for folks wanted a t-shirt bra but don't want a shallow, molded cup model.
Bravissimo Satine - one of my favourite bras! I just cant stop buying them! I want all possible colours and models! One of the most comfiest bras that ive ever owned in my life. I love their satin softness. The wires are comfy, short and on the flexible side. 30FF has a tad too wide wires for my fairly narrow breasts. 30F has my perfect width of 13cm, in 30FF theres 0.5cm difference. As im already experienced with Comexim and its flexible, sometimes too wide wires, I decided to improve fit of Satine and bend its wires. It was quite simple as I mentioned theyre on the flexible ...side rather than what we get in Panache or Ewa Michalak bras. Wider wires were causing a bit of gapping as my boobs had too much space inside the cup and were running to sides, now with bended wires, the breast tissue is well contained and gapping is gone. The gore is relatively low and also does not cause any pain. The band is perfect on me, however it is made only of 1 layer of mesh, which I really hate as this gives to bra shorter life unfortunately. I feel secure and comfortable on loosest set. The cup depth is good, much better than in 30F. This bra seems to be better for short roots, that I do not have. in 30F, my boobs were okay with small quadboobs after I wore it, and then after some time im kind of falling out of the middle (lol my boobs are more on the sides so thats very unusual, it happened only once before in one of my EM bras!) Ive decided to try 30FF, and as I said, with bended wires, cups fits well, better than in 30F, so Im going to give it a try as see whether my boobs will fall out or not Straps are good, they nicely hide under my tank tops, also theyre made of soft and easy to adjust fabric. I love that theyre wider so they dont dig into my skin.
Overall Im very pleased with these bras and definietly will buy more of them (even for sleeping!) ! Read more 255 more words
