    My favorite bra ever!
    Great shape to dress up or go out, since it's the vintage, torpedo shape (rare find in large sizes like mine).

    Biggest problem is the squeaky wires (at both ends of both wires).

  2. I knew this bra was the right shape for me based on other sizes I tried, but it took over a year to find the 38h because it's discontinued. how bittersweet the victory knowing ill only ever have one!
    needless to say, I TRY to save it for special occasions... which is difficult since it's the first (and only) bra that has ever fit correctly (and, not surprisingly, the first and only that has ever been comfortable).

    Sexy, lifting, and comfortable! But hard to find (& I don't think I got the item no. Correct 142787).
    I have this cut/style in many sizes and prints.
    It is solar to Cacique's regular french balconette, but the lace is stretchy (which is GREAT) and the support cup is cut differently (and satin) creating the vintage/torpedo/Madonna lifting-shape. :)

    My favorite bra ever!
    Great shape to dress up or go out, since it's the vintage, torpedo shape (rare find in large sizes like mine).

    Biggest problem is the squeaky wires (at both ends of both wires). Most of my cacique bras squeak and I fix them by cutting a small hole at with end of the channel and inverting a sharp, metal nail file to rough-up the ends of the wire.

    What makes under wires squeak?

    Another problem (that I, like many, ignore) is that the center gore doesn't lie flat.

      What happens if you push the gore to your chest?

    • Nothing much... the stretch-lace at the top of the cup stretches a bit more.
      When I push the gore down on other bras, it creates (or worsens) quad-boob.
