I have soft breasts with pretty much middle fullness (though because of the softness they act like FOB) and this bra is a great fit.
The "push up" aspect of the bra isn't drastic at all, just a bit more thickness in the foam on the bottom of the cup. It feels supportive without warping the shape of my breast tissue. Actually, if you are looking for a true push up bra, this isn't it. The cup is rather full and my breast are mostly covered and contained as opposed to bring forced up and out.
I rated comfort as excellent, though after 8 hours or so I do find ...the wires become a bit painful and the lace where the band meets the cup gets irritating.
The only thing I don't like about this bra is the decoration. The little roses look a bit cheap and I don't think the beige lace contrasts enough with the white fabric. It can look like discoloration instead of decoration. But the fit is fine and I use it as an everyday/t shirt bra, so I'm not really worried about appearance. Read more 77 more words
My problem seems to be more shape than size. Scoop/swoop = quadboob, resting = emptiness. More of a boob cover than boob support, and the "push-up" factor is nonexistent. The band is very comfy, but far too stretchy. Straps comfy and adjustable enough.
Another bra that doesn't fit me anymore. i only wore this one a few times and have the matching thong with tags on it still. i think the cups are a little flimsy compared to other bras and it's not as suportive as one would expect. Overall, a pretty bra with some nice lace details.
This is a bra of ironies. First the idea that this is called the soft-touch push-up. Well in DDD and G cups, the straps aren't padded, so no "soft-touch" for me. Then there's the fact that I was able to find a push-up bra in a 30DDD (30E) at all. They are hard to come by, presumably because bra makers assume that the only reason a woman might want padding is to look larger, whereas in my case, I just want to equalize my breasts on top.
But most surprising of all is that I think this is my favorite bra. It gives me the shape I most ...favor: rounded, lifted but minimized. And it's surprisingly comfortable. I put it on right out of the box and literally didn't take it off until bedtime.
The irony is that it is also the cheapest. I purchased it for $30 USD, less than half of what I've paid for some of my bras. I think that a lot of it just reflects how much I'm learning about what I need from a bra. And on closer inspection, you can see some very clumsy stitching around the gore and inner wires. The materials are cheaper as well.
The center pull straps (a feature more bras should offer) are nice and narrow and the white lace detailing, combined with the black fabric and little pink rosette at the center gore made me think of prom or homecoming and girls' corsages.
Which is appropriate, I suppose, since b.temptd seems to be Wacoal's junior or starter brand. The band is surprisingly snug for a US 30, though not as snug as the band on Parfait by Affinitas' Charlotte.
Not all of their 30s are just as snug though, so be advised.
All in all, I thought I'd never pay just $30 for a bra that actually fit me. What a nice surprise.
After some wear, I've decided the band is too long after all. Will be returning. Read more 223 more words
