The latest opinion : It's sometimes too tight for breast. Also the size caused the orange in the glass effect. I wish to have bought 70c size. I wear it loosely just to cover my nipples, not expecting any further functions.
The older one is below. ---------------------- The fabric is soft and the color is not looked through white shirts. I have fair skin with yellow undertone. Since the band size is larger than my true size(28D), I can't use the first column of hooks but it doesn't matter much. I feel comfortable and it's not loose with the third one. I am planning to shorten the band for better fit.
It's empty in the middle when I wear it. I think it's because the cup is soft and my breasts are wide-set. It doesn't matter to me at all.
The bra is wireless. I measured the seam looking like wire channel as wire length.
This bra is very wide. It fit fine for me as full on bottom, but spread out to much due to the width. Wish there was more projection. Probably better for shallow. Seems comfortable, but there is probably not much support due to the lack of an underwire.
Great softcup bra for those needing a break from underwires. I am glad I went ahead and ordered this in 32D (see my previous review at http://www.bratabase.com/browse/calvin-klein/perfectly-fit-wireless-contour-f2781/32C/ ), because it fits so much better -- no more binding feeling. Interestingly, the band on this one is small (measures 30.5" stretched, which would be more consistent with a size 30 band), so CK may have some issues with quality control! It's OK in this case, because the band still works for me. One tiny thing I wish it had, and that's side stays (aka boning). I understand though why they left them ...out, being a wire free bra.
Overall, I am very pleased with this bra's fit, comfort, and quality. It is supportive too (!), which is nice to find in a wireless bra. I bought it to replace a Mimi Maternity softcup bra in size 34B, which was comfortable, but way too big in the band and small in the cups. This CK bra is the perfect replacement and I definitely recommend it for anyone wanting a wirefree bra with light lining for modesty. Read more 85 more words
This bra doesn't fit me, so my review is limited. (It's hard to see in the pictures, but the cups are too small, and so they feel binding (squishing) rather than supportive.)
It's a comfortable bra in general, especially because it is seamless and tag free. The material is nice and smooth, but can't say how it will hold up to wear. (My other CK bra is doing pretty well.) The 1/8" thick foam lining is very soft and flexible. The 3/8" wide straps feel a little too thin, and I prefer a wider back band as well. The band is surprisingly true ...to size; it is marked 32 and it measures 32" when stretched. I am thrilled that Calvin Klein does such a good job with their sizing, which is unusual for an American brand.
*** SIZE REMARKS *** I wouldn't normally order a 32 band, but I am currently pregnant and my ribcage has already expanded by an inch. This bra WILL NOT FIT a 27.5" ribcage, which is what my profile says.
