I really like this bra a lot, it's pretty, gives a great shape and is quite comfortable. Unfortuntaly it seems to run large in the cups, I got this in my usual 32F but I think a 32E would be better.
There is gaping right at the top of the cups. Although, I think this may actually be due to how high the cup comes up. Also because the cups come up so high, the strap placement is a bit too wide for me.
But overall, I DO like it and plan to try it again in a cup size down.
I've done it, I think. I've finally found my bra that fits! It's absolutely gorgeous, the black mesh overlay the lace detailing, the bows at the strap/cup meeting, the button on the gore... Absolutely breathtaking. The band feels like heaven, soooooo comfy. The gore tacks without digging into breast tissue, and I feel so freaking sexy in it. It's a shame I'm only just discovering this after they've discontinued it, I'll have to look into the Curvy Kate brand and see if they have current bras with the same cut. <3
so, yet again, i ordered a Tempt Me in a size unlikely to fit, because i just really held out hope that some magic would occur and it would fit one day. I love the styling of this bra sooo much! at this point though, I've tried pretty much every combination of band and cup sizes (except a 32f which miiight work? maybe? sob!), and i have to wave the white flag. this bra is not for me.
style wise this is beautiful, and i have to say the raspberry is actually prettier to me than the original one i wanted, coral. its a sort of deep magenta color, ...hard to capture on pictures because of the sheen of the fabric. the other details of the tempt me remain- gore buttons, swirly lace, mesh band. in short, perfect!
fit wise, this is just all wrong. the band is of course too big, like i expected, i would say definitely size down in this band. the straps are right in my arm pits, blegh. The cups are a strange thing-the under wire seems placed correctly, but the cup almost reaches my collar bones! I get gaping on both sides, especially towards the top, and more so on my small side. it looks more like a fuller coverage bra to me in this size, but when i go down a cup (i have a 34E) it ends up being too small and cuts into my breast tissue at my underarms where they don't come over enough.
The cup also creases severely in the bottom, probably from the shallowness that many people note with the cup. i always assumed i had full on bottom and shallow breasts, but maybe i'm wrong there? i don't have much upper fullness and id consider myself with wide set breasts, which may be why im getting zero cleavage even in the sizes where the cup is too small- my breasts just slide back apart after i scoop myself in and it looks pretty awkward.
i don't know who to recommend this to, since i cant find a good fit for myself. if you can try it on and it works, i envy you! its definitely a very pretty and well constructed bra, just not for my shape. back it goes to bare necessities, unless i can sell it on braswap! Read more 281 more words
EDIT: wore it about all day yesterday and while driving, and realize the cup could probably be one bigger, as i experience some cutting in near my underarms. it also seems to drag my breasts apart and give an all over unattractive look once ive had it on for a while.
After struggling with finding the Tempt Me I so desperately wanted, i got one off Braswap in my almost-right size, and I'm pretty pleased with it! This is used, so just a fair warning that the measurements may have gotten slightly larger from stretching, although from the looks of it the previous owner didn't get much use.
Appearance: ...The gold and black combo is very nice. its a muted, very soft gold, sort of champagne-tan, with a satiny finish. The black mesh has concentric circle swirls on the top, and ends with a scallop. there are two gold fabric buttons on the gore, and small black bows on the top of the cups where they meet the straps. The band is mesh. On this particular bra, there are a few loose threads and minor wrinkling in the satin overlay of the cups, probably from previous use.
Fit wise, this is nearly perfect. I could have sized down in the band, because it is definitely very stretchy. That being said, on the loosest measurement i don't feel any slipping, just slightly less support in the cups. Its odd- it feels very secure, but it can stretch a ton. might be good for anyone who needs a larger band size than is offered. On the tightest hook i feel most comfortable, and my breasts don't move about. The straps seem to made of the same magic material that can stretch super long. When wearing it they feel snug and don't move or slide, but i can pick them up off my shoulder a good 5 inches without feeling like i'm taxing the material- crazy! For me it isn't an issue, and they are fully adjustable, but if someone needs very short straps it might be a deal breaker.
I can fill the cups well with no overspill, just cleavage. My breasts hardly ever get any as they're far apart, and i wouldn't call this "extreme" for me, just gentle. For someone closer set, i can see how they would get the vavoom style as seen on the models! I don't think i get any added size when looking at it in clothing like i do from padded bras, but i feel like this bra isn't meant for that anyway. I have a minor issue with some creasing in the bottoms of the cups- even though i've got the bra high enough. It doesn't bother me comfort wise or show under clothes, so i'm wondering if the cups are shallow? again, no idea, but it doesn't seem to cause problems.
I haven't worn it longer than a few hours doing housework so far, but it is one of the most comfortable bras ive ever worn- ironic considering its apparent design as a sexytime bra. Ive got the Wild coming to me in a 32E (ordered before i got this one in) and hopefully it will fit perfectly and not need to have been a cup size larger! Read more 433 more words
Wrong shape and too big- I don't know what got into me ordering this- this is like the third size I've tried in the Tempt Me https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" /> With straps tightened all the way, the cups fit pretty well and there's not any spillage, but then they dig into my armpits. Runs small and shallow. I love the raspberry/charcoal colorway. It's a very dark charcoal, not a light grey like the pictures show.
This is my first review and entry- apologies if i screwed anything up!
First off, i usually wear a 34DD, and have wide, spread out breasts that are more full on bottom, and when im not wearing a bra they basically disappear. not sure if that makes them shallow or not, but perhaps that helps some people decided on shapes. I saw this on sale and thought, why not, its hella cute, and i have free returns and shipping.
I heard this ran large in the band and anywhere from a cup size to several small as well, but it was only available in a 32 DD, and even ...though i KNEW that was probably waaay too small of a cup, i was hoping maybe it would somehow work? Wrong. the cups are so laughably small, they end before they even reach the halfway point of my breast tissue. its like a teeny tiny string bikini that just covers some nipple. this is half my own fault, since its at least a cup size away from even being a sister size, but i don't have the opportunity to try it in one higher so im not sure what that would look like.
the band i can fit into, a bit tight but not unbearable. the material also feels very giving, and i feel like it would easily relax over time. i measure a true 34 underbust, so this at least makes me more sure that if i had ordered a 34 band, it'd be far too large. It seems like i would get some great cleavage and lift from this if i could get it in my size, but again, since its so heinously off, cant be certain of anything to do with fit. the design is beautiful, the straps are thick without being ugly, and its such a pretty coral color, sigh.
