Comfortable, attractive bra with more of a swoosh-shaped underwire. I needed to size up for depth -- this is shallow, but not as shallow as Natori Feathers. Pay attention to fit near the bottom of the wires, since the lace may make it hard to see creasing. Wide wires comfortably contain tissue with a natural look and position, but this isn't a bra that's meant to bring things front and center. Band in 30D and 30E(DD) is mesh with only 1 hook. I think a wider band would have been more comfortable, but the band is reasonably firm, except that I had to start on the 2nd hook ...in. Straps are fully adjustable and not too far apart, but they do still fall down on me sometimes. Stretch lace conforms nicely to tall roots. Not quite a T-shirt bra, but easy to wear under most tops. Good as a higher-end everyday bra.
Watch out for manufacturing defects, though: I've owned one copy in Nude Blush on which the channels were sewn overlapping at the gore such that they created a stiff, scratchy bump -- had to exchange. Inspect when buying to make sure the sewing is flat and smooth at the gore. Finish is otherwise good on "good" copies.
Similar cuts, but more shallow: Parisian Allure (looser, plusher band), Passionata Manhattan Plunge (stiffer lace) Read more 115 more words
At first I thought this was a great fit for me! With flared bottom ribs my sternum seems to "dip" inwards meaning many (pretty much all) bra gores don't tack. This one, is so close but still not flat. I can still poke one finger between. It sits very, very low. I liked that the lining is barely there, so I feel my modesty is somewhat protected but I still get a lot of flex. My issues though... The lace overlay is pretty separate from the lining, and i found myself tugging at it throughout the day. The gore feels itchy by the end of the day. For ...my 30F bust there is not enough support in this bra for all day wear. I will be saving it for nights out when I want to wear fashion or lower cut tops. The wires are nice and wide for me, but similar to anothe review, I'm guessing because the lining isn't adhered to the lace overlay that this causes it to fold under the breast. By the end of the day I want to rip it off for a more supportive bra. What I do like, however, is the high apex so there's no rough join between strap and cup. Read more 101 more words
Even though the gore on this bra doesn't seem particularly wide, the cups sit so far apart on me! I like low coverage and get along with some plunges, but this one isn't working. The cups aren't giving me much support, but the band and straps don't offer much for me either. The band is a looser 30 and the straps are a bit stretchy and run longer.
I was hoping for a fit like Natori Feathers, but find this one a bit more difficult. Feathers isn't perfect but I find the cups conform to my shape and are pretty comfortable. In this bra there is empty space at the bottoms of the cups that folds over.
The lace on this bra is so pretty - wish it worked!
First off, I have to give this particular bra a "poor" rating because the left strap was sewn on twisted. I could not give it a "wearable" rating because a twisted strap would drive me crazy!
I LOVE the lace overlay on the cups! Unfortunately, it keeps pulling towards the apex and won't sit flat and causing the quad effect. (However, it's not an issue under the cups themselves. Kinda unusual.) The contour cups themselves are very thin, just enough for modesty. Just lining, no padding. The band is a single layer of mesh with elastic edge, and feels like it would stretch out quickly. The wires ...are a little wide for me, but manageable. Generally feels like it would be a comfortable bra. Overall, just a little too shallow for me. The straps are flocked on the underside and are soft. The top is very shiny. This color "Nude Blush" is basically a soft peach; a nice change from boring Nude! Bottom line as for fit, I think if I went the next cup size up then the wires would be too wide for me. As of yet, there is no data on Bratabase for that size. Read more 89 more words
I love this bra honestly, it's very comfortable. It has very little structure but still feels supportive. It does give coverage but you can still wear a low cut top with it. Especially if you like the bit of extra fabric that goes past the cup. The gore is sometimes itchy by the end of the day though, that could be because I move and drive a lot for work though.
This bra is very pretty, and I love the low plunge. The band is pretty stretchy and runs big. The lace is a stretchy overlay that lies loose on top of the cup. It's begging to get ripped - my fingernails have snagged it repeatedly just trying it on. While it's comfortable, I don't think it's the best fit. Even after scooping and swooping I've got space left over in different places, mostly ( I think) due to the cups being a little shallow and wide.
