So pretty on the hangar, but . . . this bra was a weird fit for me. Although I fit into the cups, they seem too tight and yet the inside edges at the center of the apex don't lay flat - the lace isn't stretchy like the Panache Andorra, for instance. The design seems to flatten my breasts outwards in a sort of minimizing fashion. Looking at the bra laid flat, it appears that the cups are very wide and shallow so it makes sense that the fabric pushes my soft, round boobs into a sort of east/west pancake shape. The vertical seams are ...placed too far to the outsides to provide any lift for me. This is a perfect example of "just cause it fits don't mean you oughtta wear it" and I'm not convinced that it serves the intended purpose in this cup size.
I like that the band is a little wider in back, but it only has 2 hooks. The band is very firm (I've heard this brand runs smallish in the band) so the 34 is perfect for me. The wider, tighter band with only 2 hooks seems like a bad combination to me; a 3rd hook would make for better distribution of the stress placed on each hook. I can easily see one of these 2 hooks coming out prematurely which is why I didn't give an "excellent" quality rating.
I like the contrasting trim colors - it is pretty. I like the look and feel of the stitched-on underband. (I'm firmly in the banded-bra category; I don't own any unbanded bras.) I feel confident that it would be comfortable in the band, but that I would ultimately spill into the center if I wore it all day. Read more 195 more words
I quite like this bra. It fits really well, band is nice and snug, the cup doesn't quadboob or wrinkle, but I think it may be a better fit for a full on top breast than full on bottom like mine. The straps are a bit far apart for me. Overall, I'm a bit on the fence about this bra. Its super comfortable and even though its probably not the perfect fit for me, it doesn't look terrible on me.
Very pretty color and contrast details. Low gore. Cups have a little less coverage than I prefer. Elastic at top of cups has lost its snap, so there is a little wrinkle in the lace even though I'm plenty full enough for the cups (but I also did not wash this as delicately as I should have).
Love love love this bra. The lace material is soft and lovely. Color combo (light peach and aubergine?) is fantastic. Very comfortable and doesn't put my breasts into a shape that is not their own. Works really well for my close-set, rounded, even boobs. The soft lace on the top has plenty of give for my slight upper fullness.
Pros: Wide band is comfy A+++ materials Looks really lovely on, but still is supportive and comfortable enough for all-day wear
