This is a beautiful and simple bra that has now become my favorite. The top has elasticized mesh that is very forgiving and the satin on the bottom section is super comfy. I find this is much easier to wear than my next best-fitting bra, Cleo Lucy. It get a rounded shape from this under all my shirts - even knit - and I hear that is unusual in this one. In my photos it looks pointy but it really isn't. Honestly, I love the way it looks under clothes and it is the first time I haven't been self-conscious wearing an unlined bra. Can't say enough how ... much I love this bra.
The size is perfect in width and depth. My shape usually puts me in between cups so I could probably wear the next size up (32F) but I think that my smaller side would have a lot of wrinkling. More importantly, the shape would likely be compromised to less of a round appearance so I am sticking with the 32E.
The band fits perfectly but I am not sure how quickly it will stretch out. (For reference, my ribcage measures exactly 32" and I prefer a tight band fit.) The material is a nice quality and doesn't itch or irritate my skin and I don't get that I-hope-this-mesh-softens-over-time feeling like I do with Cleo bras. I have lots of days where I wear this for 10+ hrs and never have to make an adjustment. I mistakenly fell asleep in this bra and that is something I could never do with my other unlined bras. Super comfy.
Like I said, this is my new favorite bra and a perfect fit for me. I am heartbroken that it is discontinued but I plan to scoop up as many as possible before they are all gone and hope that Claudette puts out a similar bra in cut and fabric soon.
