    The cups on this bra are unfortunately too short and closed on top for me. I wouldn't recommend it for FoT shapes, and even shapes may want to size up. The cup depth is under 8 inches, where most of my unlined bras in this size are 8.5-9". I think sizing up might help these issues for me.

    I thought, despite the small cup depth, the fabric would be stretchy and forgiving. It really isn't! It's not nearly as soft as I thought it might be, but it might get better with wear.

    • Closed and short--a bra for me ;-) ;-) I had hoped this was soft. Thanks for your review!

      It's still $14.99 in the Encore sale if they have your size!

      I have one too. I thought it was soft enough but short and closed off. Gave me bubbling in the right size

    • 1

      Oh and the right size for me was a cup size up :) - but it had the bubbling. I've just made this confusing. I just meant to say the cup runs about 1 cup small and also it's short and closed on top. And even if you size up its not for people full on top or with tall roots

    I've never owned a cotton bra before. I thought this would be a fun bra to try. I wasn't expecting much from the fit and went for the largest tolerable band size with the largest cup size. As expected, it's a bad fit. I'd compare it to my 30G - Claudette ยป En Dentelle Lace Underwire Bra (101012005). The shape it gives me is identical. The band is definitely too loose and the cups cut in at the top. I do like that it's cotton, however I have pokey nips and I'll want to have nip covers if I leave my condo. I might remove the wire and just wear it around as a lounging bra. I'm reluctant to because I fear my boobs will slip out of the bottom.

    This material feels lusciously soft and the mauve color is so lovely. The little button details at the gore and waistband of the panties are adorable. I love the shape of this cut on my body. The band is much firmer than Claudette Dessous Mesh Underwire Bra (CD2000), so no need to size down from my usual. If the Claudette Sophia Minx Sweetheart Demi Bra (101025) is the same cut as this (which it looks like) I will definitely have to get my hands on one!

  4. This is for the mauve colorway - The color is nice and the bra gives a slightly relaxed shape that's good for weekends. Unfortunately it isn't the most comfortable bra, the gore is a little bit higher than I like and it isn't very supportive. I think this is due the fabric (cotton) stretching out over the course of the day. I bought this on Claudette Encore and am glad I didn't pay a lot for it. I wouldn't buy it again. I also bought the white color and it's less supportive than the mauve. Like the Dessous the cup runs about a size small.

    I couldn't resist this on huge discount at Herroom. Love that it was signed by a woman to be what she wanted in a bra, & really love the muted mauve the brand offers as a neutral in place of the usual tiresome dingy beige.

    Unfortunately, the band runs huge. I wear a 36GG in Freya, but as their bands run quite generous, I was hoping this would be more snug, like most US brands: Wacoal, Lunaire. But this fit more like a 40. The cups fit however, so I there's not much hope of a36G working, especially as it is stretchy cotton, & they stop at G.

    The fabric is lovely: super smooth, silky cotton that felt great on my skin. And the cups were a straight across balconette shape, more like Cleo than Freya. Vertical seam with a very rounded shape; quite different from their mesh bra, which I likely won't try unless they expand the cup range.

    This bra runs a cup size smaller than the label. It's still a touch too shallow for me so I get a little orange in the glass effect and some bubbling. I also need a slightly more open cup. wish it worked for me; someone with short roots probably wouldn't have this same issue. Love the cotton, it's very soft. And it's sort of a unique bra in the full bust world.

      Sad it didn't work for you! I want to try a 30F since my failure with 30E, but i think I would have the same problems.

    I love the fabric of this bra, and the color on my makes me feel like I'm wearing a retro bra! Not sure why, it's not pointy & its low coverage cups, but it feels that way to me. No issues with this bra from first try-on. Wore it for the 1st time today and didn't have an issue until hour 4 or 5 when the gore started to hurt a bit. This is always an issue for me, not 100% sure why but I suspect close-set tissue is the cause. Maybe gore too low, or, too far apart?

    This is more of a lounge around the house bra for me. Very comfy but just ok in the support department. I would say the band is true to size and that the cups run small.

    Pros: Very comfortable, gentle fabric, thick straps for comfort, cute design
    Cons: Not projected enough, too low under the arm, too wide set, pointy cup shape

    I love love love the cotton fabric. It's cool and breathable and comfy. The wires are slightly flexible which adds to the comfort, although at the expense of some support. It gives a slightly droopy shape, but feels so nice. I'm so sad that it doesn't fit my shape. It's too wide for my short narrow roots, and the cups go up too high on the sides. The side of the cup cuts painfully into the front of my armpit. I get some orange-in-a-glass wrinkling underneath. Would probably be great for somebody who doesn't have my narrow roots.
