    This is a very pretty bra. Props to MamaPagan for sending it to me to try! I really like the color combination of royal blue with a black dot stretch lace overlay.
    This bra didn't fit me quite right. A couple of years ago I would have been happy with it, but now that i have been spoiled by polish bras I am awfully picky, haha. The bra is about one cup size too big, so it is a little loose at the top. It also doesn't have quite enough projection for me, and it wrinkles at the bottom. The gore is a bit taller than I like, and eventhough it isn't wide, I am so close set that my breasts try to force the wires closer together. I could try it in a 30hh, but it did not provide as much lift as I like, so I think that this is just a shape mismatch for me. Eventhough it wasn't perfect for me, I'm sure someone else will livd this beauty.

    Hettie 30J
    I am adding this bra for data/informational purposes only. This Bra is not owned by me at the time of addition to the database.

    Hettie is an unpadded underwire balconette bra. While it comes in a variety of colors, the one I got was a black dot lace over cobalt blue. The color looks far better in person than photos show. The top is very stretchy.

    The band measures 26” to a max of 33” with 2 hooks and 3 rows of eyes.

    Cup Depth as measured by:
    1 Hovering the cup between the knees, then placing the tape measure into the cups without any resistance.
    This ... measurement is: 12”

    2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance.
    This measurement is: 15”

    I feel these two figures give you a general idea of the minimum and maximum depth that the cup can accommodate, just like the flat and stretched band measurements do with bands. Since Bratabase only has one cup field, I enter the larger of the two, as it’s this larger number that determines if a cup is going to fit me or not since I am on the max end of the cup scale, but do realize that some may need the lower number to determine fit for their needs, so I will always include both figures in the reviews for full disclosure.

    The lining of this bra is looser than the outer lace, making a full fit not smooth like it should be. The top lace of the cups is super stretchy so you don’t get quad boob, and it works well for those with asymmetry as well as fluctuations in weight and hormones.

    I love the look of this bra. The color is gorgeous, and I love the stretchy top. But the wires are painful both at the sternum and under the arms, digging at both places. Horrible painful red marks by the end of the day. The band is loose on me even on the tightest hooks, so it’s not due to the band being too tight. The cups fit nice and full so it’s not due to the cups being too big either. So disappointing as I really do love the look of this one.
