THE BRA This bra's cut is identical to Curvy Kate Vegas, AKA The Flamingo Bra. If the Ellace almost worked for you, but you got in-cup quadding from the too-stretchy lace, then Tropics and Vegas are definitely worth a try.
The band runs big around this size, at least compared to Panache (the brand I have the most experience with). I fastened the 34JJ on the tightest hooks and was able to wear the 32K comfortably. The straps are pretty stretchy too.
ME I'm still learning my shape. I know I have soft tissue and narrow roots, and I need lots of projection at the wire. I think I'm omega-shaped, a little ...FoB, with center fullness. Wires like to slide out of my IMF. Wire ends like to stab me in the armpits.
THE BRA ON ME At the beginning of the day, the Tropics was wonderfully comfortable and gave a nice, natural shape. After a few hours, it slid about 2" out of my IMF. It was still pretty comfy, but the shape got pointy, my larger side was quadding out, and I had some serious bounce. I also started to notice some east/west action (which may have been there from the beginning). Read more 91 more words
This bra was closer to fitting comfortably than the other 30 band bra I tried. The cups were too wide for me, and their shape didn't work great on me–– I didn't fill them out very well. The gore was too high, too. However, it's very well made, and I like the fabric a lot.
Very pretty and comfortable. The netting does wrinkle a little on me, but I believe I'm more shallow than projected. However, this bra makes me look VERY projected, and "erases my splay." No longer fits....
Absolutely stunning ; great support for the back ; underwired at the perfect size for my breasts ; but the cup does not cover enough the breast, creating an imperciptible quadri boob when not moving : when moving the breast isn't contained well enough and : the quadri boob
