|Strap width||1.2 |
The shape of the cups just don't really work for me. I am shallow and somewhat FoB. There was a bunch of bunchy fabric in the front and top of the cups, suggesting that it's better for more projected shapes. The top did lay against my boobs though and the wire width was fine. I'm going to stick to the 3646 version.

Although I have some fit issues with this bra, I'm going to call it a win since it's actually comfortable. I tried a 65F previously which should have fit based on my measurements. I just couldn't fill it out and the wires were wide enough for the bra to cut in at the front of my armpits. Sizing down in the cup to the 65E works much better. Nice smooth line at the top of the cups (I most often gape), and comfy strap width. Wires are still maybe a touch too wide, but not uncomfortably so. There's some unavoidable wrinkling along the outside bottoms of the cups- I'm somewhat wide rooted, but my inframammary fold is more V shaped on the outside of my breasts. Since wires are U shaped, when they're wide enough for me at the top of the cup, they tend to leave a gap of empty space along the outer bottom. I'm happy enough with the rest of this bra's fit to live with it.

This was the bra that the fitter at Nordstrom used to fit me, and it is absolutely fantastic. I don't usually go for bras this lightly padded, but I love the way it fits itself to my breasts - the padding is just enough so that my nipples don't show through at all, but the cup completely molds itself to my breasts, and feels fantastic. The straps don't fall even when I slouch, which has always been one of my biggest issues with bras. Of course, the lace means it isn't wearable as a t-shirt bra, but a thin camisole or a thick shirt can solve that problem. ... I almost want to buy another one in black - I could see this becoming a great bra!
What surprises me most about it is how great my cleavage looks even without any padding. It's no push-up, but in a low-cut shirt, I'm hopeful that it will impress.
The straps are ridged on top, which you can feel against your skin if you shrug your shoulders high enough, and it's not the most pleasant feeling but otherwise this bra is totally awesome.

I picked this up (final sale) during my sizing learning curve, and assumed a 30E was the same as 30DDD. However it's not, with Chantelle! This is a beautiful bra with so many design elements; the pleated straps, lovely lace, geometric fabric, and a sparkling gore ornament.

This bra is pretty and gives great support. It works for shallow, but maybe not for very shallow breasts. The wires are wide and rather short. The straps are rather wide. They are made of a rough fabric with many tiny folds. I guess this helps against slipping, but the fabric is very uncomfortable. For me, the cups are slightly too large, but the bra doesn't show under a t-shirt. Such a pity to have to return this bra.

I had wrinkling on the top, either because the cup was too big or because I have shallow breasts and he plunge wasn't the best fit for me. Even though it stretched out, the band felt a bit tight, and the wire poked into my underbust so I ended up returning it.

The band on this bra holds firmly and hits its maximum length quickly, so there's not a ton of leeway with that measurement.
I usually love plunge shapes, but I'm not sure this one is built correctly for my body. I don't have a lot of top or center fullness (cleavage is not a thing that happens on me ever) and though the top edge feels like the right size when pulled into place, it rapidly slides down and wrinkles the upper cup. (Now that I think about it, though, it could actually be that the elastic there is a bit too tight) Tightening the straps does help a fair amount, and the pleated ribbon on the strap prevents it from budging once it's been adjusted.
The shape is nicely round, but in a natural and relaxed kind of way without much lift. Despite the sexy styling of this bra, the impact when fully clothed is fairly modest.

Loved the C Chic so much that I went back and bought another one when I returned my other Nordstrom bras, this one in purple and on sale!
