This is my absolute favorite bra, and I would buy three more in as many colors I could find if Wacoal/b.tempt'd chose to carry it again! I've had it for at least two years, possibly more than that. While it may have stretched out somewhat with time, it's still one of my favorite bras. I think my favorite aspect of this bra is the mesh/netting that extends .5" to 1" above the cup. What I've found is that the mesh is incredibly forgiving. If I've gained a few pounds around Thanksgiving, the mesh prevents/disguises any instance of quadboob. It creates a smooth line under clothing, and I wear this bra under *everything*. I love that this is my most practical bra, but that it also looks sexy when the clothes come off.
This is a very comfortable bra. It's a bit shallow but the netting on top helps hide gaping and gives a bit more coverage, so it should fit most "average" shapes. The band does stretch a bit over time, so if you prefer it tight or are between sizes, you may want to size down in the band.
This was part of my first purchase after getting properly measured. It really is a good looking bra, and it looked great in the fitting room. The rep helping me thought it fit well, too. However, once I got home and wore it for a full day, I realized that the extra netting on top of the bra was disguising a poor fit. The netting clings to the top of the breast, and hides the fact that there was wrinkling on top. My breast was not filling the top of the cup. So, if you are interested in this bra, make sure to pull that extra netting down a bit and check for fit. Don't be fooled by the pretty design like I was!
I like this bra. It's very comfortable. But like most moulded bras on me, there is a space between my breast and the bottom of the wire. There is a small space between the gore and my sternum. I have the straps at the longest for them to be comfortable. Although this would probably be considered an ill fitting bra, I'd get more in different colors.
Eta: I wore this bra all day to work yesterday. There was one point in the day where it bothered me a little, it was at the bottom of the wire on my bigger breast, but it went away after 5 minutes. I kept it on all night until about 11pm when I realized I was sweating (no fan or AC on in room). The 'red marks' were in the right spot according to the shape of my breasts (the wire mark was at my IMF, not below it), so this is definitely going to be a keeper.
This bra is pretty much perfect. It has broad, but not too broad wires. It is shallow but not too shallow. It is neither too closed nor too open at the top of the cups. The cups are the right distance apart for my far apart spaced breasts. The gore is not too high.
PLEASE NOTE: this bra was not purchased for myself.
This bra is quite a catch! It was purchased for a woman with immediate projection, and a strong dislike for a big/flattened/round silhouette that many 32D bras have given her in the past. Although she measures as 30E, this bra fit her well, with only slight hints of quadboob in her larger breast. The genius of this bra is that the cups themselves are sort of balconette, but there's a sheer overlay in the same color that comes up a bit higher on the breast, and is a very forgiving stretch material. The shape of the cups produces a ...lifted, perky, and a projected, slightly rounded shape. The end result is that this bra fit her better than anything yet, and is SUPER cute to boot! We picked it up in purple and yellow, on sale at Macy's for less than $15 each. B.tempt'd seems like a surprisingly youthful brand, considering Wacoal's usual shape. Good quality materials and stitching. I will definitely be looking to them in the future for her! Read more 72 more words
I need to go up at least one size. I have another perfectly fitting bra by b.tempt'd by Wacoal that is a 30DD but in a different style. I thought I could order another in the same size online, but that was not true. Bummer, I think that this would make a perfect T-shirt bra except for the whole quad boob thing.
While this bra looks OK, it doesn't feel right. I like the unusual design and the bright color, but the fit is off. The gore is too wide, causing an "east-west" feeling. This, coupled with a very stretchy band, means there isn't much support to speak of. This bra reminds me very much of the Calvin Klein bras I've tried: springy, stretchy bands and straps, wide cup separation, little support (and no lift). Because of the lack of lift, it makes me look flat, and naturally at my size I don't appreciate that.
On a side note, why did they use dyed-to-match hardware in the back, and metallic in the front?
