    I loved the look of the Dessous for ages, so when I saw it for sale on ASOS in my favourite colourway ('pink lemonade') it was time to BUY.

    Internet research suggested I should go down a back size and up a cup size...so after a strange thought process I can't quite replicate now I decided to get 34ff instead of my current standard Eveden 34f.

    The 34ff is definitely the wrong size. I would strongly recommend going down a band size - and I say this as someone who prefers a looser (+2 or even +3) band. However, I'm not sure it's all about looseness; the Dessous ... band is really stretchy and just seems unsupportive, somehow...

    As for cup size. Well, I sized up as suggested - and I can't actually tell if this was a mistake. I don't know if the cup is too big for me or just completely incompatible with my shape. Maybe both? There is a massive amount of room at the top of the cup, and some at the bottom. However, the width of the wires is pretty much spot on, and there is not quite enough central depth, so my poor sad nipples get squashed.

    My theory is that the Dessous is suited to shallow breasts with tall roots (if that makes sense). I have an almost round breast root, whereas the cup of the Dessous seems designed to fit a breast that covers much more the chest vertically. The cup cannot cope with projection, either, at least on top. I feel like I'd need to get at least one cup size smaller to fit vertically, but then the bra would cut in at the top. Plus the wires would sit on my breasts at the side. Sigh...

    I've thought about this so much because I LOVE the look of the bra and wanted to get another that fit. It is completely, perfectly sheer, and the 'pink lemonade' colour combination is gorgeous. The mesh is a little rough to the hand, but perfectly comfortable on the breast. It's a beautiful bra, and I'd get another if I thought it would work on me. Sadly, it's just not going to happen.

    Claudette Encore is a wonderful thing! $10/bra, so of course I tried my size down since the fit on 36F wasn't perfect. The 34 band is nice and supportive, and the little bit of wrinkling I had in the cup on the 36 is gone. Checkmark the size on this one.

    The cups flattened me out and they showed under everything as they are very tall. The band was way too big
