Only worn for a few minutes to try on and review. Bought for $28.33 online (free shipping & returns) from asos.com in February 2014. Wires - Wide enough to reach nearly behind my arms, and tall but not uncomfortable under arms. I think the wires were so wide because I overstretched the band. Since the band doesn't continue under the wires, it is easier for them to be pulled and distorted. Comfort - Bandless, so wires sit directly on ribs, which is slightly uncomfortable but bearable. However, the wires seem to rub my sternum, causing irritation. Straps are wide-set enough to rub the ...front of my armpit, but I'm used to this. Fit - Band feels OK, but can be pulled a few inches away, and since I measure about 31 inches (comfortably snug), it is probably on the looser/stretchier side. (I measured the stretched band at 33.5 inches, but the wires seemed to get wider after stretching to only 29 inches.) The center gore does not tack. Cup cuts in a tiny bit on larger side and gapes a tiny bit on smaller side, but neither issue is visible under clothing. There is a fold at the bottom of the cup on both sides. Both sides have empty space at the top corners where my armpit/boob crease is. Under clothing - Very nice round shape; the seams are not completely invisible but not too noticeable. Overall - I'd like to find a bra with much narrower and deeper cups, and possibly lower cups where the strap meets the cup. Ideally the straps would be set close enough not to touch the front of my armpit. Read more 178 more words
This just about fit when I was wearing a 30JJ in most brands, and a 30J in Alexa/Olivia/Marcie. Truthfully, I wasn't fully scooping and I couldn't quite fill the bottom due to some orange-in-glass (too-small cups, not enough depth), and would have really needed a 30JJ. So I'd say to go for a cup up from Alexa/Olivia/Marcie size. This bra seems to work for a variety of breast types, both FoT and FoB.
Aside from needing a bigger cup, my main issues with this bra are the straps, gore and band. The straps are wideset, so they can irritate and slip off my shoulders a lot - not the best for narrow shoulders. The gore is quite wide, which is bad for my close-set boobs. Finally, the bra has a partial band rather than a full, so the wires stretch a lot more than they normally would, which makes the wide gore even worse, and the band runs about half a bandsize loose in the higher cup sizes. Not the best bra for close-set boobs or narrow shoulders.
It is the best bra i ever have in my life.. i really love this bra.. first i bought it in red but later i bought 3 more colors in it... i dont know why but 30 J in lucy fits me all the ways perfect.....
