    65E

    Fits

    I tried this bra on at a Change store here in Norway and this was the first that I ever went out to look for a proper fitting bra instead of just a set that doesn't really fit (little did I know in my ignorance) and looked cute. So the saleswoman came in with this bra. At first I was kind of scared of it tbh, because it looked like my nipples would show. I still put it on and looked at myself in the mirror and I was really surprised at how it made my breasts look! When the saleswoman came back with another batch of bras ... for me to try she also had a surprised look on her face and she wanted me to take my t-shirt on. You could see me nipples if it was cold, but I told her that I didn't care much about that since my breasts got proper support.

    After almost a month of regular wear, the part of the band where the hooks are will curl inwards when not in use, I don't know why (as I've been hand washing it), but maybe someone else knows? Also I think the band has loosened up a bit since I bought it, because now I'm starting to feel that it's too loose on the loosest hook and for it to be comfortable I have to wear it on the tightest hook. So far that's the only negative thing I have to say about this bra, which is why I put the comfort as "Okay" and quality as "Good".

    So in short, this bra did not only open my eyes as to hos comfortable a bra can be, but also that you shouldn't be afraid of a bra even though it looks like your nipples will show through. But be aware that the band loosens up quickly and if you try it on in a store, you should consider trying a tighter band than usual, or else you will end up like me.

      Good review. Do you think you'll add pictures later? I've been wondering about Change bras. I don't trust the color rendering of product photos, though.

      I hope I've fixed it now, so you can see the pictures. Seems like I forgot to make them public along with the review. :)

    70J

    Didn't fit

    This is a size 70J. I did not like that it didn’t tack and I know it can, my friend has one that fits her like a glove.
    When I pushed the saleslady for a cup size bigger, she simply told me “it clearly can’t tack with your size”, something I know to be very faulty as I’ve tried Primadonna bras that do tack. I don’t know if they simply did not have a size 70K (their size system is weird) or if she actually thought this fit - I have scoured countless sites and images to learn to recognize The Fit, which I am very sure now is not this bra.
    I also tried it in a balconette version, but that was also too small. They did not have it in larger cups.
    I still have the issue of fabric folding under at the bottom, possibly orange in a glass effect?

    Today I go to the Change Lingerie shop at Cologne, and finally find a bra that fits well and looks really good. I love these lace decorations forwards.

    Didn't fit

    Doesn't fit. Just plain doesn't fit! I'm projected and Change Lingerie makes mainly (if not only) bras for shallow shapes. So needless to say there is not room for my breasts in this, in addition to it being the wrong sister size. The cups sort of collapse in on themselves near the gore, the band seems slim and soft rather than wide and supportive.
    The overall design is nice, it's got lace patterns and ribbon detail on the straps and the gore. If it fit I'd feel cute in it!
    The straps have a soft underside and stitch details on the surface and the edges. Overall it's quite a decorative bra. Ribbon detail, two bows and a gemstone on the top of the gore are a plus!

    65H

    Didn't fit

    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.

    • 30F and 30H are 4 cup sizes apart. I don't get how this compares to one much smaller. Does that company really make bras 4 sizes too small? Also vertical seams are very supportive, if not more than traditional 2 seamed-3 section cups (depending on breast shape though), because the seam is not on the bias.

      (This is something I do when measuring bras on here: flip the cup inside out, put it over your knee but without stretching, then measure where you would normally at the tops of each underwire end with the tape curving around your knee but in as straight a line from each end as possible. Can you get back to me with the cup depth? Interested to see if this gets better results for others as well =) )

    • Yes, the cups (on the non padded bras) are very small or should I say shallow. I tried on 5+ bras when I was there. I had a very pronounced double boob at my usual 30F, and even at 30G (they don't make FFs). I even tried on an I cup and the wires were too wide, but I wasn't swimming in extra fabric. A little wrinkling but no baggyness. I think that's just how their sizes go, although I haven't tried their padded bras. Also their cups have a bit of stretch in them so maybe the shallowness accounts for that?

      To clarify, my comment about the support level wasn't about the seams, but rather the number of sections the cup has. Although I think the actual stretchyness of the cups has more say in the level of support.

      I'll get you the measurements tonight. :)

    • The cup depth with the bra over my knee is the same as I got before at 23.5cm.

    • Thanks. I was curious to know if it works out better than measuring it flat a little at a time. For me it does, and it gets a more accurate number.

    • Change uses the European sizing system, so no double letters. According to the saleswoman there, my UK 30F ought to make me a 30G in their store, but I too found that I had to size up one cup size to a 30H in most models. Although their bras are very pretty, I found the large cup size engineering to be a bit lacking. Most of their bras had a decidedly unflattering flattening effect on me.

    • As Change uses the European system all out their cup sizes has a 2 cm difference instead of the 2,54 cm the UK brands use. That means that a UK 4 cup sizes difference means really a 5 cup size difference in Change bras.

      The result, a Change 65H/30H should be about the same as a UK 30F.

    • Good to know! Thanks. I feel slightly deceived now by those supposed "equivalence tables" for bra size conversion. It would be neat to see the sizes plotted on a continuum instead.

      Oddly enough though, I fit perfectly into 30Fs in French brands like Prima Donna and Lejaby.

    The wire width would have been nice but I probably could have looked that up myself, I just didn't think about it. So that's my bad.

    75G

    Didn't fit

    This bra is ridiculously comfortable. It has an east-west thing going on because the cups are too wide for me and push my breasts to the sides. but the comfort is 100% worth it. The profile is nicely rounded, though. It is my favourite lounging around bra.

    A regular problem with full cup bras for me is the elasticized part that goes from the strap to the underwire on the side. My torso widens at that point so often the elastic is too tight, but not with this bra. The whole cup is stretchy and the top edge is elasticated. This could mean this full cup fits well on ... women who are a tad fuller on the top as well. The elasticized edge of the cup is really accommodating - both my larger left breast and smaller right breast look like they fit perfectly.

    The elastic in the band and the straps are of a soft velvety material.

    The cups are slightly too small for me and the band too stretchy for me, but I usually wear 32G, this would fit a 34F perfectly.

    Beautiful push up bra. The padding is gradual and pushes my boobs closer together, giving me nice cleavage. The band runs tight (I have a 26" underbust). The center gore is a bit uncomfortable and I can't fill the cups (I'm halfway between B/C cup size). I get major gapping on my smaller breast. My larger breast is ok if I tighten the straps. The ribbon that stretches across the top of my breasts is loose. Might fit someone who's a 28D. My ideal size is 26D/26DD.

    70I

    Didn't fit

    I really wanted this bra to fit me. I recommend going up a cup size - my regular 70I is definitely a little too small and sadly they didn't have the size up.

    The bra fits somewhat like a minimizer for my bottom heavy breasts, it seems like my breast tissue is more shallow and goes higher than usual in this bra. The profile is nicely rounded though, if a little less curvy than usually.

    There is no elastic leading from the strap to the side underwire - the fabric just lies loose there. This could be bad news for people who need tightness in that area but the ... high-ish underwire and full coverage shape made it a non-issue for me.

    The band seems true to size.

    I really like how the bra looks, both the brown colour and the subtle embroidery. The pink detailing compliments the brown well. The embroidery and detailing lies rather flat and will only show under very thin materials.

    Bra construction is not as up to par to with what I'm used to from Change Lingerie. There were a few loose threads and imperfect seams.

    Sadly this bra is pretty hard to wear for one silly reason (and the other styles with the same fabric have the same problem) - there's the tiniest yet scratchiest decorative detail at the bottom of the band. It absolutely drove me nuts so I cut it off. Unfortunately the improvement was only marginal as the tiny ends of threads left over from cutting the detailing off are almost as scratchy and as the whole thing is sewn into the band it's impossible to remove completely. I cut off straps off a cami and wear it as a bra liner under the bra to be able to wear it.

    Be careful about those beige bras with pink detailing, make sure to run your finger along the bottom of the band!

    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 https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" />

    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:

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 https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" />

    The color is a beautiful light green between lime and olive green. Light purple polka dotted bow accents. Lace upper layer. Lined firm cups. Very attractive shoulder straps.

    Underwire is beautifully curved, doesn't end either too far or too close. It doesn't go too high on the sides, no armpit poking.

    It is almost a perfect bra for a bottom-heavy bust, it has a problem but it is only visual - there is the tiniest bit of loose fabric under the shoulder strap, the cup is so firm that it's almost molded and I can't fill that tiny spot. It doesn't affect comfort or fit.

    It feels very secure for a ... plunge bra. The fabric curves in more than usual from the outermost point.

    The center gore never tacks with any bras because I have a sort of a gap in the middle of my ribcage and it also angles in almost an inch from the bottom to the top of most center gores. I can't really count center gore not tacking as a sign of bad fit in my particular case.

    The underwires are a little shorter than the underwire channel, there's a bit of a weird fabric poking out thing going on in the front while the wired part of the center gore sits more closer to my ribcage.

    My left breast decided to start growing just after I got the bra so now that cup is a bit small.

    The puckering on the side image is due to me raising my arm, the fabric rests nicely otherwise.

    ---

    Center gore ends 6 cm from the bottom of the bra.

    Shoulder strap length can be adjusted from 31.5 to 38 cm. Comes with halterneck converter.

    Band and cup size both run small.

    I could probably drop a band size and go up a cup in this style (was sold out in store).

    Not suitable for anyone with close-set breasts or that has a problem with high wires in the side. Very elastic but keeps it shape well, I use it as a low-impact sportsbra since it doesn't matter if it tacks then. The fabric is a bit scratchy, especially the straps, but overall it's a fairly comfy bra as long as I don't wear it too long. It supports my heavy boobs very well.

    One of the most comfortable fit bras. Something is just too right about this one, the material, shape and fit. Gives nice shape, is well plunge and also lets my very close boobs sit without being squashed. Fits perfectly for girls, who cant wear balconette or any other high gore. It doesn't poke inbetween boobs or doesnt make your ribs ache. Color is slightly boring, but hey at least it's blue not some "yet another black/nude/white/granny"..
