This bra is comfortable, and at first I really liked it. Then I started getting picky with it and I found a few issues: the gore gaps a bit at the bottom and I get a small amount of pinching at the top of the cup. I think also it may be a bit too full coverage for my liking. It is a really nice bra in general.
After losing 30 lbs I decided it was time to treat myself to properly fitting bras. Who knew it would be so difficult? Went for a pro fit, wound up with a Chantelle Full Coverage 3816 70F. Both fitters pronounced it perfect, but I don't particularly like the fit of the cups, feel they go too E/W and a little flattened, not sexy enough. Second pro fit put me in Freya Deco Moulded Plunge Bra (4234) in 32F. Sexy, but cup gap all over the top. So much for the pros.
I've been doing a lot of ordering online and returning. I thought if I can narrow down my breast shape it would help, but I can't even do that! I thought I was FOT, now I think I'm FOB. Thought I had narrow roots, now I'm convinced they're wide.
The more I read, the more confused I get! Any advice for someone who is a total novice at properly-fitting bras would be appreciated.
I tried this on at Nordstrom Rack today. It was very comfy, but as often happens with me and molded bras, I had extra space between the apex of the bra and my boob. I also didn't fill out the bottom of the cup completely.
Accidentally bought this at a boutique for a lot of money when I was first getting some new bras, and it doesn't even fit all that correctly. It cuts into my armpits, the gore floats, the cup's too small, and any number of things now, but it could probably be comfortable for people it fits (so long as they don't have problems with the armpit).
While this bra initially fit well, it quickly stretched out, to the point where it is uncomfortably loose. I also experienced some tissue migration after wearing it for a while, so the gore no longer tacks and I quad boob when I scoop and swoop. I also had to get rid of the tag because it was crazy itchy, and the straps refuse to stay up and adjusted properly - I often have to fix them several times a day. The bands are much too wide for my breasts as well.
First specialty shop purchase from a pro bra fitter. Fits well, comfortable to wear, chafes a bit around the armpit / strap attachment but might break in a bit. Overall a quality bra, but a bit matronly looking. I could learn to love it.
