    Didn't fit

    If the Easter bunny were in the market for a cute bra, this would be it. I was pleasantly surprised by how adorable this bra was in person. In the powder blue colorway, Florence is definitely my pastel pick for Easter. 💙🐣🐰 Sadly, I have the same fit issues with Florence as I do with all Curvy Kate balconies: uneven band tension, gaping at the side of the cup/underarm area, tight at the apex, yet not able to fill the top lace. Full review on my blog!

      I have the same problems with this bra.

      I tried to fit into Florence with 5 different sizes. Didn't work. Like you and cupandahalf, similar fit issues.

      cupandahalf Love4Pollinators So frustrating :(

      I think the band fits folks with a tapered back best. Ellace does that too to me. I think I would have to be very FOT or have tall roots to fit this one.

      cupandahalf Ellace was the worst culprit for me, even worse than Florence, iirc.

      cupandahalf it's funny you say that. I tried this bra (different color) and I love it. (I hve tall roots, and I'm FOT- but I dn't think I'm VFOT)

      I am not always sure about fit due to my unevenness, but this very same bra seems a decent fit for me in 30F atm. I used to think I was FOB, but probably more even with tall roots. http://bra.pe/XWMh/

    • erispe in the 2nd pic, your roots look like they're short, maybe average, imo. Is it possible that you have average height roots, with FOT breasts? (That's how it appears to me)

      It is entirely possible Prettyncharmeuse. Truth to be told, this is still confusing for me. Without a bra my teardrop shaped soft pendulous breasts look FOB and I'd say they're kinda low set, too. But when wearing a bra they mostly just flow into the cups and take up the cups' shape. They are chameleon boobs I tell you. :) Oh, and they give a FOT impression when the pics are made with a flash, but not with normal light. If a bra is a tiny bit roomy, they can look FOB, but can also be pushed up almost to my collarbone. So, really I haven't the foggiest what they are - may fit into various categories, so I can pull off quite a few types of bras. I can never, however, wear strapless or non-wired soft bras without a disastrous outcome. I just may have a very average shape in more ways than one...

      erispe Boob twins... I swear, you are describing mine perfectly.

    • letstalkaboutbras Im new to this, and I JUST found this post too late. Lol. This is super upsetting. So, I just bought these bras on Amazon and I wear a 32H (in panache Esme--first bra that fits after U.K. resizing, which fits beautifully!) And because they were on sale, I ordered a 30HH (thinking mesh bras stretch out) but now, don't even know if this band will stretch to fit me since the materials are non stretchy. Is the BAND stretchy, or should I have gone with the 32 band? Please help someone? Thanks.

    • Sugarbaby416 for me the band ran true to size or a little tight, but you might find it ok. If you're​ new to this, you can get yourself some cheap bra extenders to test the fit. At least Amazon has easy returns :) All brands do scaling above G differently, so your experience might be totally different from mine. I hope it works out for you. Even if it doesn't, be sure to measure and add fit info to your profile for all the bras you try. It helps so much when trying to pick the right size in different styles and brands in the future.

    • letstalkaboutbras Thank you so much for the reply and the tips. Unfortunately, I just cancelled the order, but they have a 32HH on sale, despite my regular Panache size. If I'm brave, I might go for it. Wish me luck! XD
