    Didn't fit

    I bought this at a boutique today. I tried on 3 colorways: latte (nude), black, and red. The nude bra was the first and it fit perfectly and gave me good projection. It fit flat against my sternum and the narrower cups seemed to work well for my close-set breasts. I now understand what many of you mean about getting more projection with narrower cup styles. This definitely gives a front and center look.

    The black is gorgeous in person! Much prettier than how it looks in the picture. I like it better than the nude and the red. Unfortunately, the black in 38GG was not the same size ... in the cup as the nude and red colorways. It was a tad small and cut into my breast tissue on the sides under the arm. I'm not sure if all the black bras run smaller or if it was some kind of quality control error. I might try a 38H down the road, just to see.

    I'll post back later once I've worn the Ellace for a day or two, so I can comment on any fit issues after wearing it all day.

    Update: After wearing it all day, there is a bit of an issue with the wire on the right side. It rubs a bit at the top under the arm, so it looks like the latte is having a similar issue to the black bra, but I didn't notice it until wearing it for a couple of hours. I'm hoping there's a way to adjust the wire since it fits well everywhere else. I was aware of the center gore pressing on me, but it didn't feel painful or chafing. I think it's just that this bra tacks completely against my chest (which doesn't always happen with my close-set breasts). Since it is new, it hasn't been broken in yet, but probably as the band loosens, it won't press as firmly. I will measure the bra today and see if the cup is a tiny bit too narrow or if the wire is short. My guess is that maybe I need the cup a tiny bit wider on the right side.

    Latte colorway

      Black dyes require higher temperatures and the materials shrink when dyed at those temperatures. As an engineer very familiar with foundries and metal shrinkage, these bra patterns can be designed to compensate for the shrinkage. If we can design 3D molds that replace 200+ separate components for molten metal, fabric would be, relatively, simple. We need more engineers in bra design ;-) ;-) Giggle.

    • It looks like the latte has a bit of the same issue as the black (with the right side wire ending on breast tissue), so now I'm not sure if the black and the latte were the same or if it is as I suspected and the black was cut a hair smaller and I just didn't notice the problem in the latte at first.

      Love4Pollinators what you said makes sense, so it's possible the manufacturers didn't adjust for shrinkage.
