This is a fantastic bra, especially since I got it from Claudette's Encore site (so it was on huge discount!) I'm fast falling in love with seamed bras and I love the fun colors Claudette puts out, especially in Dessous. The fabric is softer than I expected on my skin and it's quite comfortable to wear for a full day of work on my feet. One thing I've noted about Claudette's bras is that their bands are very stretchy. This hasn't proven to be a problem for me thus far though.

Claudette, being a relatively young brand, has played a lot with fit from season to season. And while I'm not a huge fan of this colorway (Papaya/Olive) this season definitely has the *best* fit. One thing I have noticed is that Claudette bands tend to be stretchy and loosen a lot over time - I'm probably closer to a 30F-FF in this one. Such a chore, figuring out bra fit without trying it on! Let me just list out the pros/cons.
Pros: so, so comfortable. Love the Dessous in this season and earlier ones (beware the ones from spring 2015!). Love the natural, relaxed shape, the shear cups. And as with all Claudette bras, it's really well made and is lasting a lot of wear.
Cons: I don't like orange, and I'm on the tightest hooks. May have to bust out a Rixi clip if the band stretches any further. All the fluctuation between seasons make it difficult to pinpoint which bra in which season will fit best.

It's been a while since I've tried the Dessous (and I don't think I ever did try on the proper size the first few times). It's a really good, basic every day bra with just enough visual interest due to the unusual color choice and sexy sheerness. I got the magenta/lime color way, and wasn't sure if I would like it or not - I definitely do. It's unusual, but still pretty. Plus, damn do I love a sheer bra. Both visually and comfort-wise, beats molded cups any day.
I like most of the changes they've made over the past few seasons. The top sheer portion of the cup ... used to cup up much higher as it met the strap, and it seems they've decided to bring it in at a lower angle. I like the tweaks in fit and shape for the cups, except for one minor thing - what else? the strap separation is a bit wide. Not so much that it will chafe my armpits or fall off my shoulders, but not *perfect* either. Claudette seems to have been straying from their narrow-cup, narrow body template, which is... not ideal for me. Well have to see how this pans out in the next few seasons.
All told, I'm really happy to have this bra in rotation. It looks great, it fits fine, and I barely notice I'm wearing it. That's all I ask in a bra anyway.

Straps were too long, boobs were sad and saggy. But worst of all? The sheerness! I didn't anticipate how weird and unflattering that would be. If you have small, pretty nipples you might not mind -- but I don't https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />.
