By measurements, this should fit perfect. However there is no measurement in bratabase for strap to strap width and cup height (like at HerRoom). So this bra eats my tail of spence as it gets pinched between strap and cup. Going back down to 30DD as that width is about 1/2-3/4" less between shoulders and 1/2" lower on cup height.
Update: I didn't wear this on my IMF and my boobs escaped, that's why the wires were sitting my breasts at the end of the day. The band of the bra fits much better after wearing this twice and doesn't feel too tight anymore. The wires are hard but do not annoy me.
This is the closest I got to something that fits! I finally seem to know what to look for. The wires are almost wide enough. Finally a cup that works when I try to place it around my breasts without wearing the bra. However, I've worn this for a day to work, and it is ...still (!) sitting on the outer part of my breast, so it's not wide enough!!! I don't feel this, and wonder how important it is to have the wires fit right, especially since the sides of my breasts are super shallow. I guess I need an even shallower bra than this one I get no quad boob anywhere, and no gaps. The band seems the perfect length (29.5 stretched), but it is actually very uncomfortable. It might be because the hard Cleo wires poke me with a tight band. With an extender on the widest hooks it's more comfortable, and the wires don't bother me too much. I love this color, and think I will keep it because the bra seems discontinued and I cannot find a 32DD in this color online. The cups are a little tall for me, but they're only a tiny bit annoying under my arms. Read more 154 more words
Shape: round, projected, even to FoB, close set, average root width.
Heads up my projected friends, this bra is SUPER shallow. I wanted a molded t-shirt bra and this worked out okay until I learned a bit more about bra fitting and realized that while this gives me FANTASTIC cleavage (seriously stunning) it is far, far too shallow for my shape. The wires sit a couple cm below my IMF because I require more immediate projection than this bra offers. That said, the plunge shape is lovely for my close set breasts (no gore digging into my breast tissue!) and it really accentuates my center fullness. However, I find the band excessively tight and uncomfortable, and I suspect that has less to do with the actual band being too firm or too small and more to do with a shape mismatch / cup fit issue.
Anyone have suggestions for a good nude molded/t-shirt bra with immediate projection that I can replace this with?
I love this bra! For a while, it was my favourite bra, and I had it in a few different colours. Unfortunately, I think I would do better with a 30F now, so it's less comfortable to wear. However, the ones I own still have lots of life in them, and the underwires feel pretty sturdy. Plus, it gives great cleavage!
I'd say this is better for someone with wider roots, and a fairly shallow bust. I think I have slightly too much projection for the bottom of the cup, but it's very open on top, so quite forgiving when it comes to quadboob. It gives a nice ...round shape, which I love. I'd say the band runs slightly small, so if you're in between band sizes, definitely size up! The bra is moulded and seamless, so for the most part, it does not show through t-shirts, but there is a visible line at the top. This bra would also be good for people who need a low centre gore, but for that reason, it probably wouldn't work for women who are more full in the centre with softer tissue. Read more 82 more words
I didn't get a chance to measure the bra, since I was in a rush to ship it bag, though I did get the cup width. The width was 6 inches on the both the 30E and 32DD that I tried. The edge of the cup was visible under a shirt and it somehow managed to gape slightly, but give slight quad boob. The side of the cup where the strap attaches seems to cup rubs in my armpit as well. The bra gave fairly good cleavage, but the underwire isn't a good fit for me, I had a hard time getting it to stay in my IMF, making me think I could go up a cup size, but don't think it would work since the cup already comes over to close to my armpit. I have much better luck with Decos.
This bra has the most potent 'new bra smell' I've ever encountered. It fits fantastically. The fabric is smooth, and it makes my breasts appear very flat/round - so perfect for a t-shirt, just as advertised, I suppose. I dislike the tags and will probably remove them. This bra is a pleasing salmon colour and makes me want sashimi.
This bra fit pretty well despite some issues. The main one is that the edge on the left cup naturally rolls outwards, while the right one is fine. I guess they pulled the fabric too tight while manufacturing it? Either way, it makes the bra look very obvious under a shirt, even a flowy one, and especially bad on me since the left is my smaller breast. Defeats the purpose of a tshirt bra, really.
I have slightly shallow (I think), slight FoB, and firm boobs, and I didn't have any obvious empty spaces in the cup. The gore tacks nicely, the wires are a good width, and the band is true to size. I do find that the straps are a touch wide, but not enough to fall off, just enough that it cuts in when I hunch. This bra doesn't give me epic cleavage or anything, but it feels supportive and comfortable.
I'm amazed that this bra actually fits, I usually wear a 32E. I think I must have misread the label when I picked it up in the store this afternoon. It gives amazing cleavage and the band is tight, but will hopefully stretch out after a few wears and washes.
It's a really comfortable bra, no pokes or itches anywhere. I love the fabric they use and how even the trim isn't scratchy.
The width and depth of the cup seem to be good for my shallow breasts (not too deep). Unfortunately the shape doesn't seem to work There's a significant gap at the top when I lean over, and also in the bottom of the cup. Maybe if there was a way of trimming the extra cup from the top... But I guess not. I'm returning this one.
