    65E

    Didn't fit

    I bought this bra on an impulse, as it was the only nursing bra with a band size below 70/32 I have been able to find in local shops. I SHOULD have got a size 60/28, but the model doesn't come smaller than 65/30, so I'm wearing it at it's tightest hook until I find the time to stabilise the band somewhat and reduce its stretch.

    General comments:

    The Change sizing is slightly odd: A B C D DD E F G H I J (not all available in all band sizes). The online bra size calculator in the Change webshop (find it here: http://change.com/fi/bh-guide -- apologies ... for linking to the Finnish site) translates my measurements as 60F, which seems quite spot on in this case. I have been breastfeeding for 10 months and counting -- in this brand's sizing, the size and shape of my breasts seem to hover somewhere between 60E and 60G.

    Bra description:

    This cups of this bra are slightly stretchy -- they're made out of stretch lace over a microfibre lining and they're shaped with darts. The front edge of the cups is stitched onto some elastic resulting in a lightly gathered lace 'ruffle'. The underwires are very flexible and very wide. They come up all the way to the top of the centre gore, but stay about 1 cm short of the upper underarm edge. The band is very stretchy. The plastic nursing clasps are easy to open with one hand and stay closed when they need to. The strap support 'frame' is made of a layer of microfibre over a layer of soft jersey with overlocked edges. It doesn't offer much support to the breast when the cup is down, but it does prevent the strap from slipping.

    Fit:

    I was amazed to find that this bra works for me, as no bra ever seems to: under normal circumstances (*) the fit is surprisingly 'okay' despite the band size not being optimum, the centre gore lies flat on my sternum, the cups gives me a decent-ish shape (which is rare for me in a soft cup bra) without cutting in, and the underwires are WIDE enough for a change to accommodate my wide-set and wide-based breasts. I wouldn't mind a somewhat more 'up front and centred' look, but on my peculiar frame (narrow ribcage, wide shoulders) this really isn't too bad as it kind of echoes my 'natural' shape. The darts/seams don't bother me at all and the lining fabric of the cups feels smooth and soft against my skin.This bra also seems to offer enough support for my size, although with all the stretch going on I wouldn't call it a 'heavy lifter'.

    (*) The fit of the cups is quite forgiving for my changing shape: when my breasts are at their emptiest I don't fill them out completely, but this isn't too noticeable as the elastic gathering along the front edge of cups prevents them from gaping and masks potential ripples. I only find the edge cutting in very slightly when my breasts are very full -- with my breasts at their fullest this 65E is clearly too small as the centre gore will no longer lay flat. As neither extreme situation occurs very often though (my breasts are usually somewhere in between, although I've recently been experiencing a couple of days of persistent engorgement), I find this bra reasonably well-fitting, comfortable to wear, and quite practical.

    Appearance:

    It's a very full cup and definitely not the sexiest of designs. Also, the construction is a bit 'clunky', and finishing is lacking. For the price I would expect more obvious quality, to be honest. Despite the lace, I don't find it shows under clothing.

    Conclusion:

    I find this bra reasonably well-fitting, comfortable to wear, and quite practical. In my opinion it is a serviceable, everyday kind of bra that works for my shape with the lace and ruffled edge adding just a touch of 'cuteness'. It definitely isn't my 'dream nursing bra' though, so I'll just keep on looking ;)

    65DD

    Didn't fit

    I ordered this 65DD bra after I had bought the 65E version, just to see how much the sizes differ. You can find my earlier review of the 65E version here: http://www.bratabase.com/browse/change-lingerie/florence-nursing-29704363/65E/#review-3309. I will be returning this one and possibly exchange it for another 65E as it doesn't fit me as well as the larger size does.

    General comments:

    This cups of this bra are slightly stretchy -- they're made out of stretch lace over a microfibre lining and they're shaped with darts. The front edge of the cups is stitched onto some elastic resulting in a lightly gathered lace 'ruffle'. The underwires are very flexible and very wide.

It doesn't offer much support to the breast when the cup is down, but it does prevent the strap from slipping.

    Fit:

    For me, this 65DD clearly fits less well than the 65E. The centre gore does not stay flat on my sternum due to the fact that the cups are too small for my breasts, especially for my larger right side. The left side seems to fit okay though and the whole bra might be just fine when my breasts are at their 'emptiest', but that doesn't allow for much flexibility, which for me, unfortunately, IS quite necessary in a nursing bra. (*) The edge of the cups cuts in slightly, although again, this is more noticeable on my fuller right side. The band is obviously too wide, but reasonably snug as long as I wear it on the tightest hook. Despite the sub-optimum fit, the cups gives me a decent-ish shape (which is rare for me in a soft cup bra). I have some quad-boob tendencies, but no other spill, because even in this smaller size, the flexible underwires ARE actually WIDE enough to accommodate my wide-set and wide-based breasts. The look is not what I would call 'up front and centred', but on my peculiar frame (narrow ribcage, wide shoulders) this really isn't too bad as it kind of echoes my 'natural' shape. The darts/seams don't bother me at all and the lining fabric of the cups feels smooth and soft against my skin.In the right size this bra also seems to offer enough support for my size, although with all the stretch going on I wouldn't call it a 'heavy lifter'.

    (*) The fit of the cups is quite forgiving, but in this smaller size clearly not enough to cater to my breasts: when my breasts are at their emptiest I might fill them out completely, but my breasts seldom are/remain in that state. The edge already cuts in slightly on my fuller right side and this will only get worse as my breasts 'fill up'.

    Appearance:

    It's a very full cup and definitely not the sexiest of designs. Also, the construction is a bit 'clunky', and finishing is lacking. For the price I would expect more obvious quality, to be honest. Despite the lace, I don't find it shows under clothing.

    Conclusion:

    In the correct size, I find this bra reasonably well-fitting, comfortable to wear, and quite practical -- a serviceable, everyday kind of bra that works for my shape with the lace and ruffled edge adding just a touch of 'cuteness'. I feel a bit like a broken record, but the underwires of this model are definitely WIDE, in part probably because of their flexibility. Underwires seldom even come close for me, so this does mean something. It definitely isn't my 'dream nursing bra' though, so I'll just keep on looking ;)

    This was my first properly fitted bra. I bought it sometime after my first child was born and wore it almost daily until I was done nursing my third child, 5 years later. During that time the bra held up surprisingly well. The underwires did eventually poke out, but I used moleskin to tape them back in, and they held until I eventually retired the bra when I finished nursing.

    It was so comfortable and supportive, and the stretchy lace accommodated the frequent size changes my breasts went through during those years. The lace was pretty and looked discreet beneath clothing. The lace also made me feel pretty, which was something I really needed at that time in my life.

    Definitely not my type of bra. Slight quadraboob going on, but the top of the cup is also empty and wrinkled. The cup is too wide too.

    The insides of the cups have too much stuff going on: the "sling" system for nursing (which is completely useless in this size anyway IMO) and thick seams against the skin. I don't know what's going on with the seams, since I don't recall the regular Florence style having such bad seams. The cups are stretchy and not very supportive, and they don't give much shape to the breast either.

    Not top quality, not comfortable, not my style and yeah - I still bought two of these.
