Like I said in my review for the 28E this is a beautiful bra, it's well made and definitely reminds you of a Vegas Showgirl. I received this in a bra grab bag special otherwise I probably would've ordered two sizes up on this particular bra. I have slightly more areola coverage but it's close. I could probably "make due" wearing this since the underwire doesn't hurt but I still have quite a bit of lift on the front gore.
A bra that fits my shallow shape quite well, aside from the stretchy, loose band. I'm not a huge fan of the colour combo, but it does give a nice shape, though there isn't as much uplift as with the 28DD - Curvy Kate » Entice (SG1601) . I do get painful digging in from the center gore, not sure why.
This bra is beautiful . This is the first bra I have that actually, for the most part, fits me. It's not perfect, but I don't know if anything will ever be given my very difficult shape. The band on this may be slightly too big for me, but I can't go down past a 28. It actually fits when I sit down, and does not move around much. I might have even been able to go up one cup size, but I like the appearance it gives. This bra actually manages to make my empty and sagging breasts look somewhat round, so I love it. The only problem I have with this is it doesn't exactly look great under tight clothes because it gives a square shape and looks lumpy under clothing.
I am somewhere between a 30E and a 30F (29.5" band measurement, 36" bust standing, 37" bent over), depending on the bra.
Some people have mentioned that this bra fits fairly true-to-size (whatever that means! ) so I opted to go with a 30F. It fit my bigger breast pretty well, but as you can see from my photos, the smaller side wasn't filling the cup at all.
Also, the bra had kind of a weird shape -- potentially from the shipping process -- being almost flattened on the sides and wider in the center, if that makes sense. Not sure if this is how this ...style is meant to be, since I do not have a Tempt Me or Tease Me bra to compare.
While I had no issues with the bra band riding up (I usually don't, honestly), the band is definitely generous and stretchy. I could easily have gone down to a 28" band.
The straps are also very stretchy. I felt like I was tightening them to half or more to get support from them -- something I don't normally encounter from bras.
Overall, not a bad bra if you can fit into it. It's certainly gorgeous, and I had no issues with the underwire, but it just doesn't suit my bust shape very well. Read more 113 more words
This is a beautiful bra! The mesh is quite pretty and it's well constructed. I was sad that it didn't fit, the side underwire cut into me enough that it hurt for awhile after I took it off and the center gore I could fit a thumb under (top down) with wiggle room. The top of the cup was almost low enough that my areolas were barely covered.
Lovely color combo and very Marie Antoinette-esque design, but unfortunately this bra is too small for me and creates a very square shape because of it. I think it would ordinarily offer a beautiful, rounded and "purple" shape on someone who fit it better! The open top is very accommodating to upper fullness, and the bra is overall soft and very comfy.
I'm narrow and projected with fluctuating breasts . .right now I'm about a 26f or 28e. For the most part, I really dig and enjoy this bra. Aside from that the top of the gore digs me far too much. It's only bad (potentially painful) when I slouch though. Kind of a good re-enforcement to better my posture. Sitting/standing properly it's possible for me to not even notice the gore. This is a normal problem for me with bras that have a gore higher than ~2". The band wass probably a true or somewhat loose 32 - I've altered it down by ~4 stretched inches and it's still ...an inch or two too big for my 27" underbust. Though this bra was used when I bought it and that could account for the band being stretched out a bit too. Otherwise, this is a comfortable bra! The straps are almost out to my armpits, but they don't rub or chafe them like most bras with the same placement are prone to. The underwires are too wide, but not by much, and it doesn't have a negative impact on the fit despite how firm the wires feel. My larger breasts spills over slightly while my smaller one gaps a little - the cups seem TTS. Lots of projection on the bottom, though the bottom most seems to start off shallow, only 1/8in?. It doesn't result in any wrinkling that I see. Lovely looking design! Does give some cleavage, in the style of cakes on a plate I think? It's mild on me, certainly not like a plunge. I wish I'd bought this earlier instead of letting it rattle around my head since it was announced!
