My first Corin! I've realised this bra is new to Bratabase, so hopefully this proves helpful https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
This is the beige colorway of the Susanna. This is a lovely little bra - technically a three-part balconette with light foam padding and a stretch-lace section. If you're full on top/even and need plenty of apex projection but not quite as much immediate projection, this is definitely the bra for you. The fabric feels decent, the lace is soft. The seams are unobtrusive and this could be used as a t-shirt bra quite happily, although the lace may cause some jiggle. The Corin brand ... logo is melted into the top side of the hook end of the band, which is a cute and unobtrusive touch.
The band is VERY stretchy, and I would say this is quite a loose 32 - I would also consider this to be a true UK 32FF, or even a firm 34F, rather than the tag's measurement of 32H (which I believe is its US size). The fabric on the wing also comes up quite high on me, although the wire channels have 1cm of empty space here. The straps are lovely and thick, they're only half adjustable due to the lace detailing however this bra sits so high on me that this doesn't affect me.
The wires are narrow, the wires are VERY soft and I can barely feel them against my skin. This of course has the downside that they're subject to distortion, especially if you opt to go down a band size to counter the stretchiness. This also means that the gore doesn't tack on my evenly full breasts, it barely soft tacks however I'm not sure going up a cup size would fix this.
Ultimately this bra doesn't work on me as I need way more immediate projection than this can give, and the wings make me feel a bit too wrapped-up in combination with my high-set breasts - a pure shape mismatch.
