This review is for the red plaid colorway. Both this and the green plaid have a nice preppy look, potentially great for Christmas!
This is a nice and firm comexim, both the cups and the band feel like they will stay put and support you. I really like wearing this bra, particularly before I recently grew and am now quadding in it. I think it gives a nice round and lifted look from all angles, and my back stays looking smooth without lines or bumps. Now that it is a bit small I am getting breast tissue spilling out the side causing more underarm fat look, but previously this wasn't an issue.
This bra is so cute! I love the bright red plaid - which is definitely more of a pink red, than orange red. The band is very tight so I do need to wear it with an extender. I can close it without using one, but it feels uncomfortable after a couple hours. One or two more sets of hook would have been perfect. Which I did request the alteration of having a 2x4 hook closure, but only ended up with a 2x3 hook closure. I did have the straps moved it 2cm. I thought that this would help with the straps falling down… but for some reason it ended up making the cups feel more shallow or smaller. They still fit but it doesn't really give me the lift/silhouette that I like under clothing. It sort of flattens me a bit. Still, I do like this bra. It will just probably end up being my work or travel bra and not one that I wear everyday.
This bra has many alterations! Cookie pockets, reduced cups, straps moved in, and an extra row of hooks for a total of three hooks. There is lots to love about this bra: the pattern is gorgeous, the cookie pockets make the inside wonderfully soft, and the extra row of hooks make the band particularly stable. It’s actually a very comfortable bra, and it looks great when worn. Unfortunately, it doesn’t technically fit me. I tried the 75 band because some of my 70s felt a bit snug, but the 75 is way too big on me. I’m not sure how much is general variation in the sizing due to the fabric type and the handmade nature of each bra, and how much is just that I’d be better off with the nonexistent 73 band. At the same time, the cups are too small and shallow, and cut in sharply despite the cup height reduction. I love so much about this bra, I wish it worked for me!
This bra's measurements have been altered
Cookie pockets added; reduced cup height
This bra is GORGEOUS! Omg. So cute! I love it! Unfortunately my boobs have gotten bigger since I ordered this bra and therefore the cups are a bit too small … but I am definitely going to re-order it in a larger cup size. The plaid is a bright red that is more on the pink/cooler side (it is NOT an orangey red) and super pretty. The ribbon at the top does not close off the bra and i would say that this is good for FOT boobs. I am FOT and even with the too small cups I barely have any quadding. After I receive this bra in my correct size I will write another review https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
