This is a really good fit for me, when I sized up one cup size. The tag is marked cupsize I in all different sizing systems, and it confused me a little bit. I am normally a UK 30FF (best fit in a Fantasie Rebecca), and since the EU conversion of that reads 65H, I would say that this bra runs small in the cups.
The band is true to size, and the lace is very stretchy, so quadding is not a problem. The shape is rounded and minimized, but not in that wierd and unflattering frisbee way. Its more up and close to the body than smushed and wide!
This bra was purchased on a mall date, since I'd been curious about Change for a while anyway. I didn't REALLY want to buy it, but I felt like I had to buy one because I'd taken up some of their time and a dressing room. It's spilly on me, but the band feels nice. I was tempted to ask for a bigger band size in hopes that would fix the cups, but I couldn't do it. Shopping related anxiety is a nasty thing.
This is Change Lingerie's answer to minimizers - full shapers. They doen't really push your breasts to the side, they lift and elongate the breast upwards and also push some tissue towards the center.
It's a white unpadded bra with three layers of fabric - mesh inner, an opaque stretchy synthetic material inbetween and a patterned mesh upper. There's simple geometric lace detailing along the elasticated top edge. Straps have small scalloped edges.
I have high-set breasts so a lot of people won't have this problem but the straps definitely don't adjust short enough for me. I had them shortened by a tailor a tiny bit. The work done ...doesn't show.
This bra is majorly shallow towards the bottom (I think that's part of how it works) and will move downwards during the day so expect to have to adjust it if you have at least average bottom projection.
Change Lingerie tends to vary the cut of the bra a little bit when they change the color. The blue version of this bra is updated with a vertical seam towards the bottom - my bras have a two part cup, the blue version has a three part cup allowing more bottom projection. The full shaper variants with an almost vertical extra seam tend to fit projection a lot better. Read more 108 more words
This bra is very comfortable due to its super elastic and soft fabric (bands, cups and straps). The shape of it is a little weird because it is very wide. the underwire even pokes me at my underarm. I bought it because it was very cheap... it makes a great breast shape and the seams are not very visible under a t-shirt.
It would better fot women with wide set breast, or that are bigger on the bottom, wich is not my case.
Not sure of the actual name for this bra, but for Change it's the shape that matter anyway. (I feel as though the only difference between Change bras of them same shape and different name are the colour and detailing (lacing, bows, beading.)
I've had this bra for 2 years now so it has stretched out a bit, but is otherwise holding up very well. It has a seam an inch from where the cup and strap connect that goes all the way down to the base of the cup. This is very visible under clothing, making it unflattering for tight and light-coloured shirts. Change does not appear to sell any seamless bras in 30H so this is unavoidable.
