Bardot is great for a projected, FOB, short rooted shape. If anything, I could have used a little more projection at the wire and a little less at the apex, but that's a minor quibble. The band runs a smidge tight, not quite as tight as I'd prefer, but such is life.
The wires are a smidge wider than I'd prefer, but I actually don't mind at all because they're so flexible. It makes it a million times more comfortable. Looking at you, Panache!
Aesthetically, this bra is even nicer in real life than in the pictures. I'm especially a fan of the unusual double bows at the gore and straps. This is the first (non-Polish) bra I've owned in multiple colorways, which is pretty awesome.e
This bra was a surprise! I wasn't particularly looking for a sheer bra but it is a novelty in this size and my last sheer bra was too small (75K - Ewa Michalak » Sm Czarna Mgiełka (481) ) I bought this just because I was trying every style in the new season.
I'm surprised because other than the underwires being a tad too tall and poking me/digging in, it's pretty good fit. Since the gore pretty much tacks, when you separate your boobs they seem to stay separated. When I bend, only my larger boob threatens me but then they seem to go back to ...their place. It's a projected look and not a difficult fit. The cups could be higher near the gore as I'm always complaining of but besides making feel insecure it doesn't seem like it's an issue. Minus the underwires comfort is good.
If I decide to keep the bra, I would absolutely need to do something about those poky underwires, so I would add felt and/or cut them down a tad since they are almost OK. The wires in a 34K are fine on me, it's just the 36 and up. If I encounter any spillage issues after long wear, I will definitely come back and complain here. Otherwise, take a chance and get yourself a lovely sheer bra. Sorry no side pics because - well, it's SHEER. Read more 127 more words
This is surprisingly comfortable to wear, the band is true to size. The cups seem a little small, they need to be deeper for my shape, so I have some quadboob in the middle. Otherwise this is an almost-fit.
Why did they have to go and discontinue this bra? This is the only one I've tried that doesn't gape on the top due to my semi-conical shape. I get some wrinkling on the bottom and it feels a bit shallow compared to the Ellace. After wearing it all day the wires start to dig into my ribs.
This is one of the few bras I have ever tried that my boobs don't push down my chest over the course of the day! It's nice to have so much projection at the wire without the entire cup getting bigger. I don't have a lot of volume on top and frequently have gapping at the top, but the Bardot is pretty smooth along the upper edge, and the embroidery there is incredibly beautiful.
The fabric is surprisingly stiff, given how sheer it is, but that's okay, since it wouldn't be very supportive if it was softer, and I need it stiff to ...push my splayed breasts in a bit. Since it's so sheer, though, I can really see where the cup isn't against my breast around the bottom of the gore. I can live with that, since it doesn't actually hurt.
My biggest problem is that the apex is pretty high for me. My tissue is soft enough that I can rearrange myself and aim my nipples up into the apex of the bra, but then I get wrinkling along the seams. If I just aim straight ahead, the top of the cup collapses just a bit along the horizontal seam. This isn't a deal-breaker for me, but it does make me shake my head.
The wires seem pretty narrow to me, but I'm still trying to figure out how narrow something needs to be to be considered narrow. Read more 145 more words
Curvy Kate gives me an odd fit. In almost all styles. (sigh). The top of the cup doesn't accomodate for my full on top shape. This flattened me out, and was just too east-west for me. eh. I'm tired of trying ANY of CK bras in hopes one might fit....
I want this bra to work so badly, but out of the box it just didn't.
The wires are delightfully short and narrow, and overall the bra is a great one for a full on bottom person. I took the advice to go up one cup size from your usual and it worked out for me: the cups fit me very well. However, the wires were too stiff initially, and even with many weeks of attempted bending they still pinch me at the outer edge of my ribs. This is such a weird place I don't even know how to fix it. Additionally, the band was too tight, without ...enough stretch in it to get me through a full day. I got an extender and it fixed that.
The shape the bra gives is a nice, rounded one. It looks great on me from the front, too. But I didn't like the look of this bra nearly as much as I'd thought I would. The embroidery comes down so far on the cup, and took up most of the upper section. I also hated the pattern. So I'm taking it out, slowly but surely. Read more 84 more words
