Purchased in June 2019, this is the 1st of 2 Selina Lace bras I own. The fit and comfort are naturally the same. My boobs are front and center while also being lifted just a little bit higher than what my Alana's give me. Like my other Selina's, I feel like this minimizes me, more than my Alana's yet when I measure, my breast perimeter is nearly identical.
This blush pink colorway is a light creamy pink that is growing on me more and more. This Selina Lace looks luxurious with the lace covered wings and the copper/gold colored fasteners and I now consider it to be my favorite ... non Alana bra. Lately though, I do notice the gore to be folding onto itself but since none of the gores tack on any of my bras, this isn't a major problem. I find my arms brushing the side of the bra a little, which I do not recall happening when I first purchased it.
I also own the Selina in both a white and white/grey colorway and they both not as luxurious as this Selina Lace. I also have the matching high waist panties and the combination just adds to the luxuriousness of the bra.
In spite of the bras name, the cups are not lace covered and makes for an acceptable t-shirt bra with the seams generally not visible. I find this bra retains body heat a little more than I prefer so it's not a good bra for a very warm day but then again, what bra is.
I am beginning to regret acting on my initial reaction to new bras. This Selina Lace was not a favorite of mine when I first purchased it but the more I wore it, the more it stretched and molded itself to my body. Had I worn this more often early on, the sooner I would have developed my appreciation for this Selina Lace. I have parted with many bras over the years, not having given them a chance to be broken in, as it were. Perhaps the 38K and 40K Bravissimo and Panache bras I no longer have might have eventually fit.
I thought it would be interesting to compare my original measurement data for this bra to what they are today.
.......................................... original / current / difference
band length un-stretched..... 34.00 / 33.00 / (1.00)
band length stretched........... 40.00 / 39.50 / (0.50)
cup depth.............................. 17.75 / 18.25 / 0.50
cup height............................. 12.00 / 14.00 / 2.00
The (1.00) inch change seems normal as hand washing may have caused this shrinkage.
The (0.50) inch change in stretched band length may be the result of my being older and weaker haha.
The 0.50 inch increase in cup depth is possible
The 2.00 increase in cup height seems excessive but possible
The results of this re-measure are within the realm of possibility. This Selina Lace is softer, more comfortable and as supportive as it was when I first got this in mid 2019. This is 2 bras in a row now where the re-measured stretched band length is less than the original data, a curious result.
