Knowing that they are discontinuing all the styles using this base, I wanted a few to replace my too small but much beloved gold Tempt Me. So, I tried this colorway twice. Once I got what I suspect was a manufacturer's defect, and then I got this one, which was more on par for what I expected.
Pushup for those of us who aren't B cups (and I need it cuz my boobs HATE each other)!
Has 3 Hooks (in GG+)
Low center gore for us petite and prominent sternum types (I'm both).
Pretty color combinations.
* Earlier I said it was comfortable, and this is true...to an extent. If you are of ... the narrow shoulder, narrow chest variety (if I measure from armpit to armpit across my chest I'm just a smidge under 12" wide--that's 30cm for you metric gals) you will HATE this bra. The straps will start under your armpit and will try to twist out of it--it's hard to describe, but you'll know it if you have it. Other than that, the bra is comfortable.
The construction quality on this style is kind of all over the map, though definitely hanging out more in the "not exactly excellent" camp. There's been snags in the lace, loose threads, etc. on every single one of these that I've ordered, and I've ordered 4 or maybe even 5 now I think. Even that beloved gold one has it, but I overlooked it because it doesn't really affect wearability, it's just a nitpick that bugs me as a seamstress. There may also be some issues with some of them getting the sizing mislabeled, but I would suspect that this is an issue that will be very unlikely for you to encounter.
I also have a bit of that "orange in a glass" effect that I didn't really understand until now, but I could (and would!) have ignored it if it weren't for the straps being set impossibly wide. I hope that helps!
