If I had tried it on with a shirt over it, moved in it like I typically do, and adjusted the straps to where I would be wearing it. I would have noticed how it was digging into the underarm area of my smaller breast. If it was my appropriate size, I would for sure be comfortable. As is any article of clothing. If it fits, it's comfortable. I unfortunately cannot take it back to the boutique I purchased it at as I've worn it, removed the tags, and washed it. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":-(" />
I ordered this bra in a few sizes hoping they would work and I've written other reviews for those well. Bottom line, I'll probably keep trying until I find one that at least contains all my breast tissue because I'd love to have a basic bra like this in my wardrobe. I'll probably just have to ignore the gapping along the underwire and strap. It's a fantastic looking basic molded bra. Reminds me very much of my old favorite Freya Deco. It's probably not the most ideal bra for my projected breasts, but I'll ignore its flaws for its versatility.
I wrote a more detailed review for this bra model in the 38H size if you're interested.
This bra is gorgeous and I wish it fit, but I think my breasts are too projected to really get a great fit in this kind of molded cup. It's possible I need to size down in the band and up in the cup to get a closer fit, but since my breasts are having trouble filling the cup top and bottom but is spilling out all around the cup, I think my breasts and this lovely bra are not meant to be.
I WANTED to love this bra. But sadly, I think my breasts just can't do a molded cup at this size. I am very projected with immediate projection. Evenly full on the top and bottom, somewhat center full, pendulous, very wide root, tall roots, close-set, breastfed one child, and I'm 5'1" 180 pounds. There was gapping at the top and bottom of the cup even though my nipple area was being kind of squashed so I felt unsupported. I thought maybe I could get away with it, but as you can see with a tight cami on, the top wrinkles show right through and overall the bra can't ...hoist me up enough to give me a nice rounded shape, instead giving me a pretty unattractive slope. That's NOT my idea of a good look.
Back when I was a 30G, the Freya Deco was my favorite bra. I was so excited to find this lookalike in my size. And it reminds me SO MUCH OF my beloved Deco. It's plain enough for every day but the little ribbon detail on the outside (where it does not come into contact with skin-genius!), the little polka dot bows, the J hook, the overall comfiness and versatility make this bra attractive as well. It's also super comfy. I love how once you're in it, nothing really rubbed or poked. It just feels like a very easy-going bra, if that makes any sense.
It's so nice I may keep playing with sizes to get a good fit because it's SO nice to have a basic seamless bra to go with everything, but I can't really see this one being a winner for my current shape. Read more 172 more words
An Amazon Wardrobe try on. Band/ straps/ wires all fit comfortably. I'm not using the J hook, but I think there should be enough strap length for that if I fully loosened the straps (It is an awkward place to reach to for me). I was afraid the gore would be too wide, but its low enough that its not a problem. I puff out very slightly in the center above the gore, but the is honesty the best for how close set I am that I've tried besides the Elomi Cate, which encompasses that tissue. Cup volume is fine, however I do have the slightest nipple bump coming ...through the molding/padding.
two month wear update: I have this in both black and tan now through Ebay. I really wish the padding was thicker, because I still get nipple bump issues. I'm a little close-set for the shape, and a little more projected in shape, so I do have to push the girls apart and let them be a little flattened to get it to fit well when I put it on. Still one of the best-fitting options I've found so far for a padded 34H bra. At the end of the day I occasionally have some irritation where the top of the cup/band connection area will rub/annoy my tail of spence area. I wish it was ever-so-slightly shorter there.
Month 3 update: The front of bra fabric at the top of the cup is now peeling off the cup foam- it's not the fabric unraveling, but just the thread seems to have pulled out. I'm treating these bras excellently- not wearing twice in a row, rotating with others, washing every 5th wear or so. I'm really disappointed that they haven't held up better. Read more 184 more words
