S - B.tempt'd By Wacoal » Lace Kiss Bralette (910182) is an unadjustable wireless bralette made of somewhat itchy, floral-patterned, stretch lace. It is unpadded and wireless. The elastic seam/band which connects the bottom of the cups to the rest of the band offers some support as do the cups themselves.
The cups are see-through and do manage to shape breasts nicely. Although I've noticed my chest sometimes looks "rectangular." Not "uniboob," but just sort of boxy. It's hard to explain and it's very subtle.
The band is made of the same stretch lace as the rest of the bralette with an elastic strap effectively going the length ...of the perimeter. It seems to me that in the front of the bralette, the band has semi NON-STRETCH stitching on the elastic while the back stretches as one might expect. The band, at least in the small and medium, has no closures and is not adjustable.
The straps are elastic too and have two parts -- meaning they are not fully adjustable. The front part of the strap is elastic with delicate scallop detailing. The back part is plain, flat/smooth, similarly-colored, elastic with metal adjusters. The straps are fairly thin and -- with no underwire and no adjustable band -- are seemingly doing all of the support work, causing them to dig in a little. If one were to use the bralette as a sleep bra, though, they wouldn't notice this.
The instructions say to hand wash it, but I've machine washed and dried it with no problem.
Even with all of its "flaws," as far as bralettes go, I think this is one of the best -- especially if you're looking for one that "does it all." It has received several editor's awards. I'm a 30E/30DDD, tall and wide roots, average projection, fairly even, and it fits me in the small and medium. The small gets more traction because it's tighter and consequently feels like it offers more support. I mostly use it as a sleep bra and for those times when I'm hanging out around the house or running light errands. I wear a lot of cotton t-shirts and under them, the bralette looks like a normal t-shirt bra for the most part which is a huge plus. I haven't tried wearing it with anything else. Now, it can be a little itchy at first but it softens over time to become very comfortable and light. One could wash it in a fabric softener if they didn't want to wait. Overall, I think this is a wonderful product that would be great for summer and/or lounging around, and certainly one to try if you're in the market for a good bralette. Read more 342 more words
This bralette is made from stretch lace. It's not very supportive, and it doesn't do anything with my natural boob shape. I wasn't expecting that from a bralette in the first place. It's comfy, slightly supportive and not restricting - perfect for lounging around and spending lazy days at home (which is exactly what I wanted).
Size wise, I'm a 30E/32DD and size M fits like a glove. I'm positive this size would also work 1-2 cup sizes smaller. The cups are stretchy. I would not recommend it to anyone with a cup size larger than 32DD (I'm already very close to quadboob).
Mind that different colorways of this bralette may run ...differently - I tried on the "rose violet" before, and it ran smaller, so I had slight quadboob at the top and near the armpits. I'm glad I tried on the blue one - it fits perfectly.
The front of the longline part is curling up when worn, but that doesn't bother me.
All in all, it's a nice, inexpensive lacy longline bralette and it fits far better than most S/M/L sized bralettes I've tried so far.
I'm not familiar with the quality of Wacoal products yet, so we'll see how it holds up with wash and wear, and how quickly it's going to stretch. Read more 102 more words
This is a very pretty bralette. Finally one I do not spill out of the cups. It is not super supportive, especially since the band is a bit looser on me, but supportive enough to be a comfortable (and cute!) relax at home bralette. The bralette has stretch but not extremely so. The band is about an inch or so looser than I prefer, so I may alter it a bit; ordering down a size wouldn’t be an option because then the cups would be too small(I assume). The straps do dig into my shoulders a bit due to lack of band support and thinness of the straps - I wish the straps were thicker! I am a projected 30DD and my breasts fit the cups pretty good, though I suspect if your band is less than a 30, or breasts are larger than a 30DD volume (unless perhaps you are shallower) the medium may not fit too well.
A completely sheer bralette. The bright colours are beautiful. There is no mesh lining, just stretchy lace that looks like a net. It's a tiny little bit supportive thanks to its stretchiness. I like to wear it in Summer at home when it's hot, and sometimes I use it as a sleep bra.
This one seems odd because there is no side seam or cup edge of any kind. It makes it pretty hard to measure cup width and depth. This bra feels so delicate I am scared to wear or handle it much. It is just one layer of lace with no reinforcement. Feels like wearing nothing.
Very sheer, it also does not hide your nipples. I wore something over the bra to smooth things out. Other than that the bra is very cute and comfortable. The only issue I had was one of the straps sat on my shoulder blade so after almost 12 hours of wearing the bra the skin started to get sensitive in that spot. It's very light which is nice when it's still so hot out.
I bought this bralette in my quest to find a comfortable sleeping bra. This didn't work simply because the fit was way off for me. The bralette is beautiful and comes in many vibrant colors. It's completely sheer and there is no lining. There are no hooks and it fits much like a sports bra so there is no gore to tack or underwires. The straps are not fully adjustable, but they do partially adjust. The lace is stretchy. My problem is the lace didn't stretch enough. I bought the largest size and it's still ridiculously small. I measure as a 30 GG and found the cups multiple sizes too small. It feels very delicate and I'm not sure it would last long.
