I would recommend this bra for someone who has a long torso and likes a minimizing effect with wide wires and low-medium projection. Probably best for even fullness (I am even-to-FOB). Accommodates tall roots. The gore is the kicker: I do not know anyone who could tolerate the 4 inch tall gore that they have made in this size. I recently tried a different Chantelle demi (C chic sexy demi) in 32F, but the cups were just a bit too small, so I thought I'd give this 32G a go. Now I know why Chantelle doesn't make most of its bras in 32G: they have no idea how to ...grade them.
Gore: 4 inches tall. 4 inches! Digs in at the top. Cups: single layer of mesh. Single vertical seam. Minimized shape. Some loose fabric at the top, but fits well elsewhere. The sides of the cups are digging into my armpits. Wires: wide. Bra does not lay flat on a table when hooked on the tightest hook (dead giveaway of poor grading). Straps: not fully adjustable. In fact, the adjustable portion does not even reach the top of my shoulder. I never complain about too-long straps, so this is odd. The cups are already digging into my armpits with long straps anyway, so no sense shortening them. They have done a split strap in the front for sexy effect. Band: accurately sized. Fabric: soft. Cute and unique mesh print continues along the band. I ordered the purple (barenecessities sale) and it is accurate to online pictures. Read more 144 more words
I find this to be an incredibly pretty bra. I love that it's sheer, and it looks delicate but does support. I need a 30dd in this, but I had the 32d band taken in and it works nicely. My very soft breast tissue does jiggle on top as it's a demi, and the straps do dig in slightly by my armpits, so I don't frequently wear this bra. Since it's a demi, it works well for my shallow breasts. The seams show under thinner clothes, but I like wearing this under sweaters. Despite the short comings of this bra, i do like it. I feel pretty sexy in it. My spouse enjoys it too
I grabbed this bra at my local Nordstrom on a whim. I went to try on strapless bras but this one caught my eye and I thought I'd try it on since I've never tried this brand before. The first one I grabbed was a UK 34E on the label, and it was too big. This one reads UK 34DD and it fits perfectly. I'm a bit full on top, so I get a lot of bras cutting in along the top of my breasts (like the Fantasie strapless I tried on...ugh). This one fits really nicely. It also accommodates the immediate bottom projection I've got, ...which another common issue I have with the shape of bras. The only other bra I've found that fits this well is the Cleo Lucy (5851) and other sister cuts of that bra. This one is definitely going to be a frequent wear for me, and it's black so it's easy to match! AND I ordered a decent strapless bra in the same trip. There's nothing quite like the feeling of a successful day of bra shopping. Read more 79 more words
