    Didn't fit

    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!

    • Beautiful! I debated whether or not to get that one because of the band measurement. I do still want to try one of them though.

    • What a beautiful bra! This looks fabulous on you.

      Calluna thanks, it looks like we're wearing the same size these days, and our measurements are so close!
      rachaelll thanks.

    • Actually, your measurements are better for the band than the listing had so I could probably do it. I’m happy with 29-30” stretched bands right now, sometimes 29.5-30” if I feel more swollen. I think that we are pretty close, but you can do slightly snugger bands than me.

      Calluna , I am a little bit conservative when I stretch bands. I follow the instructions on this site...I only stretch them until I see the wires bending, and I measure from hook to eye (not from the hook to the end of the band). Not sure how consistently people measure like that. There were a couple measurements for the 30FF that said the band stretched to 32-33", with the previous owner of this particular bra measuring it at 32.3" (which would have required a firmer stretch for sure). It does feel stretchy though. I definitely could use a 28 in this model.

    • Yeah, it was closer to 32” which is why I passed on it. I’m also a conservative measurer. I initially measured hook to band end but now do hook to hook. I’m super nervous about over stretching as well. But the one rachaelll posted looked too small for me in the 28 band. So I think 30FF is right for me. Should you decide to part with this one, I might take it off your hands.

    • Calluna , I'll let you know. I have only tried it on so far. I need to wear it to see how it will work, and I'd like to try it during 'low tide' to see if it still cuts in. I'll keep you posted though if I plan on selling it!

    • Oh of course. :)

    • It's a beautiful bra and it looks great on you!

    • Thanks Sonya

    Used to fit

    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.

    Hasn't set fit

    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!) !
