    Since my 28FF Marcie gave quad boobs but the Envy was fine, I concluded that 28FF is my size, but I need the stretch lace for my top fullness. So, I ordered this bra which is supposed to fit my projected, fuller on top & centre boobs, with tall and narrow roots, close-set and soft tissue.

    I'm not sure what's happening here - are the cups too big or the wrong shape...? I'm having lots of wrinkles on the mesh portion of the cups. Despite this, I feel supported and my boobs look good. The cups are deep and narrow, and the stretch lace definitely accommodates my top fullness. The band is snug and nice.

      I think it looks pretty good! Maybe you could size down but I don’t think I would if it’s comfortable for you. Wrinkles like that aren’t necessarily a problem.

      Looks great to me but I think it’s wrinkled because of the material being thin and silky. You might try a size down as this one is known for being a little bit big.

      If the wrinkles do not show through clothing and you feel supported, I do not think they are a big deal. I had some similar wrinkles in Hettie, in a couple of sizes, despite KNOWING one size fit/was a smidge too small. I think sometimes fabric just wrinkles a bit, and it is not necessarily a fit "issue". Certainly in this case, it does not look like they are a result of a *functional problem* that would affect support or comfort, and they are minor enough that I would not expect them to be an aesthetic problem (showing through a shirt). It looks like it fits well enough that I am not sure another size would work better.

    • I'm glad to know the wrinkles aren't a big issue! Pretty sure a cup size down will be too small as I had spillage in the 28F Jasmine which is supposed to have even more room at the apex and top than the Hettie.

    Straps are too wide for narrow frame. Underwires are long and shaped for wide root.
