  1. This is my first underwire bra that I've bought since being properly fitted. Based upon my measurements, I should be a 40KK in Bravissimo sizing, but after reading reviews on it that it runs a bit small, i decided to size up to the L cup. Great thing i did! This bra is very supportive and very sturdy. I've been able to wear it all day and not worry about unnecessary jiggle or having to readjust my breasts in the cups. The only issue i've had with this bra is that when i wear it on the loosest row of hooks, its still a little too loose, and straps end up digging into my shoulders.Luckily on the tightest setting, the band is tight enough... i dont need my straps trying to support the weight of my boobs lol. Other than that, this is a great bra!

    Hasn't set fit

    I really hoped this bra would fit, because the star pattern and white fabric make a nice style (and there are so few white bras out there!), but unfortunately the fit is a somehow off.

    First, the construction - the cups are made from a single layer of non-stretch fabric. It's a full-cup design, made from four parts. The seams on the inside of the cup have some loose threads, but otherwise the sewing is reasonably tidy. The band is also made from a single layer of stretchy powermesh. It looked to me in the pictures like it had side boning, but it doesn't.
    The materials feel sturdy ... and are quite soft. Compared to an older Bravissimo Alana, the materials are significantly softer, both in the cup and the band.

    Since the fabric on the cups is completely non-stretch, the cups really show any asymmetry or a too large/small cup. The shape is very projected at the middle of the cup, but average projected at the bottom, giving more of a "green" shape. The wires are a bit too hard for me and the gore is stabby. I'm having a bit of a shape mismatch, a better fit for me has more bottom projection but creates a rounder, flatter shape - that's why the Bravissimo Millie in the same cup size works better for me. For me, full cups don't usually tend to work.

    Regarding the sizing, it seems consistent with the usual Bravissimo sizing, in that the band runs true to size/tight-ish and the cups run one size small compared to the usual British size.

    Didn't fit

    My shape: Projected, narrow, shorter roots, even/functionally full on bottom, soft tissue. Cleo Lily fits me best.

    The band runs about a size larger (32"), and the cups are pretty true to size.

    I had high hopes for this bra, but it just didn't work for me. It gives a fairly droopy/"upside down 7" shape, and the side sling creates a weird tension in the cups that cuts into my breasts. The middle and inner part of the cups seem to have enough immediate depth, but the outer part of the cups are a strange wrinkly mess (partly because they're too wide). My search for a Cleo Lily replacement continues...

    Purchased in early 2019, this white Selina seems very utilitarian. It is white. Very white. White all over. Fit and comfort is very good all things considered. My boobs in this bra are more front and center than other bras I have while also lifting just a little bit more than what my Alana's give me. Like my other Selina's, I feel like this minimizes me, more than my Alana's do.
    The one remarkable attribute of this bra are the wings, which to my mind are the smoothest, softest wings of any bra I have had. In terms of luxuriousness, these wings compare quite favorably with my Panache Melody's ... which I seldom wear. In spite of this softness, I cannot feel anything from the wings while wearing it. The Selina has potential as a great t-shirt bra but it is not boob sweat friendly.
    I also have the Selina in the white/grey colorway and they both not as luxurious as the Selina Lace.

    July 2020
    After another hot and humid day, I was taking/peeling this white Selina off and noticed something for the first time. I had mentioned in the initial review that the wings seemed extra soft and so fully expected to feel that softness after unfastening the hooks but what happened surprised me. I was able to feel the inside and outside of the wing material slide against each other, which suggested there were 2 fabrics to this wing. I am not referring to the upper and lower seams but the panels, if you will, of the wings. I have never noticed any of my bras, ever having more than 1 fabric unless there was a lace layer overtop. What was even more surprising was that there 2 very different levels of softness to the wings and perhaps even more surprising was the softer of the 2 materials was on the OUTSIDE of the wing. No wonder I could not feel anything different in the wings when I first reviewed this bra. The material the hook and eyes are fastened to are very special, the thickest and at the same time softest material I have ever noticed in a bra. It's taken a year but I have become very happy with all of my Selina's and especially with Bravissimo.

      It's been 3 months since I last wore this bra...

      The band on this white Selina has the softest wings I have ever had in a bra although the softness is something I cannot feel while wearing it. The material supporting the hooks and eyes is to die for, it is so soft and luxurious to the touch. I do find it odd though that both the grey/white Selina and the Selina lace that I also have do not have the same softness in the band or the closure material.

      I do get a very nice, round uplifted shape with this and my other Selina's. I used to think I this was a minimizer for me as it seemed to push my boobs further up and in compared to the cakes on a plate I get with my Alana's but if I measure my bust perimeter (bra on of course) I get equal measurements!

      The one thing that does bother me though is the fact that I still get substantial wrinkling at the vertical cup seam. It's almost like this Selina is saying I can't fill the bottom of the cup... "are you serious Selina?" lol.

    Purchased in early 2019, this white/grey Selina is my least favorite Selina. Fit and comfort are similar to the white Selina and Selina Lace, which is very good all things considered. My boobs are more front and center compared to the other non-Selina bras I have while also lifting just a little bit more than what my Alana's give me. Like my other Selina's, I feel like this minimizes me, more than my Alana's do.
    There really isn't anything remarkable about this bra and the pattern of this colorway can be visible under the wrong top. This somewhat indifferent attitude almost steered me away from .investigating the Selina white ... and Selina Lace but if you read my other reviews, you will see how much I love them.
    The Selina has potential as a great t-shirt bra but it is not boob sweat friendly.
    I also own the Selina in the white colorway and they both not as luxurious as this Selina Lace.

    July 2020

    I wore this Selina yesterday for the first time in at least 3 months, maybe 6, and was very pleased with how the day went. I had a bit of a hop in my step and I think it was because of how I felt wearing this Selina. I felt like I had boobs of steel! I had one of those days where I wore the bra the whole day and was in absolutely no rush to change out of it. The bra did not feel like a band with straps and 2 cups but rather like a complete, well designed mechanism for supporting my boobs. It was almost like my boobs were 2 pounds lighter and I felt like my posture was way better, more upright than usual.
    I have worn my Selina's a lot the past few weeks. With these Selina's, I have found some of my best bras ever and they were right here, sitting in my drawer the whole time!
    I am still not too fond of the star pattern though as they do show through on lighter colored tops.

    Hasn't set fit

    Another bra that certainly couldn't fit me, but as I have it in my hands brand new and there is very little about it on Bratabase, I've measured it.

    This bra is unlined. The straps are a bit stretchy and fully adjustable. The cup is sewn of four pattern pieces. It's nice that the navy stars on white background print covers the whole bra band and not just the front.
