I found this babydoll for about 4.50£ on ebay, so I couldn't resist to give it a try since I always wanted to try a babydoll. The band on this runs very small in my opinion, I had to wear an extender to be able to close it. I couldn't do stretched band measurement as I feared to tear the skirt. But I did not find it very stretchy. The cups are as expected too small although it's not as bad as I expected it to be. (I usually wear a 32KK) I think I need about 2 cups bigger or maybe 3 for a really proper bra fit. ...Although I think that the bra is made for a bit less coverage and cleavage so I think one can get away with a slightly smaller cup for more cleavage boost effect. Also I think this bra cut is very good for full on top boobs. I don't get real quadboob (cup edge does not cut in) but I also cannot make the gore tack. The bra gives me great cleavage though. The cups are folding on bottom since they are too shallow for my boobs. The skirt is a nice length on me (mid-thigh, I'm 169cm / 5'6'') and falls nicely without flaring out too much.
The width and shallowness and shape of this bra's cups are about perfect. The band is too stretchy and a bit too long but I'm 26 underbust so that's normal. Despite the good cup shape this bra doesn't feel supportive enough for me because the cups are too short for my comparatively tall roots. The cup height is 4.5 inches at the centre, but a large area of fullness above the cup remains, enough for me to feel too unsupported. It's good to know I prefer a cup height of 5 inches or more. You can see my breast measurements and info on my profile page.
I got the babydoll for the bra mainly. If I didn't like the babydoll part, I planned on removing it. I love this babydoll and it will remain intact! I tried the bra (not babydoll) in 28DD and it was way too small. Given that, I am surprised that one cup size up and I'm juuuust filling the cups. The cups do fit, but it's close to gaping on me in the center. However, I think this is largely due to the straps being in my armpits, because I have to angle them in so much, it causes more space in the center of the cups than is ...meant to be. The gore comes up higher than I need and it pokes me in the sternum. It's not painful, but it is uncomfortable. The cups seem a little bit shallow at the bottom. I need projection, so there is some empty cup at the very bottom, but I fill out the rest well, it isn't noticeable or uncomfortable. This bra gives amazing cleavage! It's very sexy and my husband thought it was something only for the bedroom, but no I'll be wearing this out under dresses https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
Another issue is the band being too loose. My swoop and scoop is escaping a little bit due to a too loose a band. Even on the tightest hook this band is too big as it is a stretchy material. Other reviews were saying this band runs small, but not in this case. Maybe in this size range it is different. I would say the band is true to size but with a lot of stretch, so feels bigger. With the straps moved inwards and the band reduced, I suspect this bra will be a near perfect fit. It still fits well enough, and was a good enough price, to keep without alterations, so I'm keeping it. I will get around to altering it one of these days.
I got it in black/blush. The bow and charm at the center are crudely sewn on. I'm going to have to re-sew it (the back of the charm faces outwards), or I may just remove it all together. The bra I tried on in 28DD, which didn't fit was in the ruby/spice colorway. I prefer that so much more over this. The blush is still beautiful but the spice is really something special. If one comes along for the right price I will grab it, in either the bra or babydoll. Being a 26 band doesn't give many options, and I was hoping the band would run tight on the babydoll. I found that it does not run tight, but I like this babydoll well enough to keep anyway. Read more 358 more words
I own two Ritzy bras in 32HH and one in 32J and they all fit really well. I ordered the babydoll in 32J because I thought it would fit similar to the normal bras but it's way smaller in the band than the bra. I am not even close to being able to close this bra, to me it looks like its two sizes smaller than the normal bra. Very odd. The cups seems the same but I can't really tell.
I was excited to even find a babydoll manufactured in my size, 28H, so I can forgive some minor complaints with this one. I love the berry color and the design of the cups. I don't quite like how the skirt hangs- it's very clingy and bunched, I would prefer a looser/flowier silhouette. I also don't love the padded cups, they are unforgiving of asymmetry and my larger sides quads ever so slightly when fully swooped and scooped while my smaller side gapes a tad. They also functionally make the cup shallower at the bottom than my breasts want. While I can adjust my boobs to sit nicely in the cups with some effort, I do eventually get wrinkling at the bottom of the cups from lack of immediate projection if I move around a lot. It's a babydoll, so practicality isn't a big deal with this one. It's not nearly as good as my "holy grail" babydoll, Curvy Kate Belle, but it's nice to have another style.
