I tried a lot of unpadded bras at Change and I noticed that their cup sizes run quite small. I'm usually a 30F in Panache. In terms of cup volume, this is the size where I don't get a double boob, although the wires are a bit wide for me. I found the band quite similar to my other 30F's that fit me.
The cups are double layered, with a mesh interior and lace exterior, and the layers are put together so that the seams are hidden on the inside. Unlike other bras I've tried, the mesh has a little bit of give. Also ...unlike other bras, this one only has two panels on the cups. Because of that, and also because the wires are a bit too wide, I think it'll hurts the support level a little bit. It's probably fine for the office, or a date, but I wouldn't really run around in it. Too be honest, I didn't really notice that the wires were too wide as the cups hug really nicely around the breasts.
In terms of looks, it's prettier when I'm wearing it. The lace is covered in roses and the colour is grey (labelled Moonrock on the label), and I almost didn't buy it, but after trying it on I noticed that it complements my skin tone nicely (I'm fair skinned). It also gives a nice rounded shape as well.
Update: Wore it for the day. Does not give as much support as my other bras. I probably won't be wearing this one too often. Read more 165 more words
The gore didn't tack on this one. I think it's cause Change bras are quite shallow which is not good for my projected boobs. Too bad it's the only relatively cheap brand that I can actually try on in a store where I live It's really pretty though.
This is such a pretty bra, with a beautiful roses-and-leaves lace overlay on the cups and lace on the straps. I wish it fit! I included a 30A in my recent Change order just to confirm I don't wear that size -- and I don't, at least not in this style. The cup volume is very close to right, but the wires aren't wide enough, and the half-adjustable straps aren't quite short enough when adjusted as short as they go.
Fit: Fits well overall, but quite oddly. It is cut low and dips down a bit to look like two U's. The lower cut would work better if it didn't go up so high on the sides where the strap attaches. Therefore, if it was more horizontal all the way across, this bra would have a better shape. The outside material of the cup wrinkles even though the inner material (against the breast) is flat. Look at photos to get a better idea of the fit.
Straps: The straps are only 1.5 cm wide in terms of the elastic part that provides support, but there is a lace covering the makes the bands 2.6 cm wide.
Look: It is very pretty and feminine, "the most beautiful bra in the store" according to the clerk.
