I only own this bra. In multiples. I've gotten myself into a bra-rut.
It's reliable, if you don't mind that it's expensive and the underwires break like clockwork every six months in the SAME place where the wing meets the cup and it only comes in four colors (black, white, beige, and light pink).
It's fairly invisible under clothing if you don't mind a little quad boob now and then, and the uni-directional nature of this bra's fabric only causes your clothing to twist in odd directions some of the time.
The poking of the underwire into your upper arm is mostly manageable, and over time, you barely notice ...the mild nerve damage occurring.
It's a sensible, no-frills bra, nothing pretty about it, but then again, why would you want to bring attention to your femininity, you crazy, over-feminine nut! No pretty colors or lace for you, you've already got huge boobs, so that should be enough.
Generally, it's an ok bra to wear when you've given up hope on finding anything better. It'll get the job done, for a while at least. Read more 75 more words
Surprisingly comfortable even though it is a cup size or so too big. Overall its just a blah bra though it the kind you have just to cover your nipples. No lift, or separation just overall not that great.
The balconette bras by Cacique are wonderful. I have loved them for years. While they have extended their size availability, I will soon size out of their options again. Brand new, this bra fits on the tightest set of hooks. The straps were way too long but I took this to a tailor and had at least 2" taken out. Now the straps are barely short enough. I should have had the tailor take out more of the length.
This is one of my less well fitting bras.It's really, really comfortable. However, it stretched out fairly quickly and it continues to stretch as I keep wearing it. I have had to take out 2" from the band and I'm tempted to take more out. It's held up very well, in any case. If you can deal with a tight bra for ~2 weeks and you're in Cacique's size range, go for it. the comfort and smooth cups is pretty worth it.
