Bought this bra via the Claudette Encore sale - it had been my number 1 bra on my 'Most Wanted' list for a long time. This colourway is soo swoonsome that when it appeared on the site I was so excited. I expected the bra to be very tight and possibly too shallow based on the reviews I'd read.
It is just as stunning in person, and made of great materials - very soft, matte cotton on the front of the cups, silky ribbon straps and powermesh back which makes it really comfortable to wear. The band is perfect for me, DEFINITELY not too tight, ... and three hooks - totes dreamy y'all! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" /> The straps are notably thick which I like.
The bra is quite shallow - think it's the first time you can actually see cleavage in my pics (for some reason cleavage seems really hard to photograph, sometimes I have it in real life and yet it never seems to translate to the pics I post here - but check oot my cakes on a plate in this bra!) as the bra is shallow at the top and bottom, meaning my boobs are pushed straight up. The cups are taller that I expected which is good - I think if they were much lower then there'd be too much quad-ing which would result in half my boob falling out the top! As it is, the cups are nicely tall so manage to contain the tissue mostly with just a bit of quad at the top - not too much to deal with (and to be honest it's quite a novelty to have this type of look!).
The wires - oh how I love you LONG LONG wires that contain all my boob tissue at the side, you are perfect. Your width is delightful, your length is fabulous. Love your work.
Gore is high but not problematic at all.
Verdict: better fit than expected. Wonderful wide band + angelic wires + soft materials + heavenly colours = good bra for me https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":-D" />.
