(Bra identification note: this Camille Balconet in cherry blossom, a muted dark pink, is labeled as Chic by Change.)
I finally ordered some Change bras in an attempt to fit my wiiide, shallow, small breasts. This one is as wide and shallow as expected, maybe even a bit too wide, and unfortunately a bit too big in the cup for me on all but a few days of the month. The cups have pockets for adding padding, which I will try. The cups are also significantly lower-cut than my other 30B Change bra -- sexy!
The straps can convert to racerback or halter, but they are only half-adjustable and I already have them adjusted as short as they will go, so it looks like I'll have to sew them shorter. The band is also quite stretchy (to 33") so I may sew that too.
It looks like Camille is a best-seller for Change, so I'm looking forward to trying this bra in 28B soon.
The cups seem to run smaller than standard UK sizing too which is business as usual for the Change brand.
Often when I'm wearing this my nipples will slip out! You have to stuff your boobs deep into the cups. So, yeah, for a "balconette" bra, this bra plunges quite a bit. Would not recommend to people who have boobs that are fuller on top. I am more of a "full on bottom" boob person and yet this still happens to me.
This bra is heaven. Comfortable, practical, secure.
It's a lighter purple plunge bra with a really smooth stretchy synthetic upper that'd look seamless if it wasn't for the vertical seam and purplish pink lace ribbon detail on the top edge of the cup. The cups have stiff lining. Straps have a stylized plant motif.
Underwire fills the channel almost fully. On the side the underwire ends luckily for me not too high. The underwire is definitely wider than the 75G cups but not enough to be an issue.
The shape is very similar to Rita and Stella but fits better. The loose fabric issue just where the straps end that I ...have with all of these styles is much less pronounced.
Just as with those styles the center gore comes relatively high for a plunge. Speaking of center gores this one doesn't tack but next to Change's full cup bra I also reviewed it's the second best center gore fit I've had on my sloping and curved ribcage. The underwires are vertical and don't push out.
I wouldn't suggest Rita or Stella for full on top breast shapes because the fabric curves inward a lot from the outermost point of the bra and will heartlessly quadboob when you're in too small a cup even with full on bottom breasts. This bra doesn't seem to have as extreme a curving back in but I can't really say it'll fit full on top breasts. Read more 129 more words
