I bought this on recommendation that it was a similar cut to the Cleo Marcie but a bit more closed on top. I found I couldn’t quite fill the upper stretch lace on Marcie in the same size, so thought the Blake would be THE BRA. Sadly, it wasn’t to be.
I found the band too stretchy and it rode up on my back. My comfortable measurement is closer to 40 so the Blake band definitely runs big. The centre gore sat flush, however the cups were loose pretty much all over and more so on top giving me not much uplift and a slight torpedo shape. Having further researched how to actually use Bratabase, I’m going to try a band and cup size down to see if that gives me a more supportive fit.
I really like the cerise colour and the geometric fabric. The straps are lined with a really soft fabric which I appreciate, I would love if Panache lined their wires with this stuff too.
