ABOUT THIS BRA
This is a seamless, unpadded, full-cup, underwire NURSING bra.
* Purchased while ~8 months pregnant guessing at my post-partum size. Guessed wrong so tried on but never wore.
* One layer of smooth stretch mesh.
* Wing support: seaming.
* Full band - band is straight beneath wires.
* Back close with 4 columns of hooks (yes, 4).
* smooth elastic
* soft (don’t stand up on their own)
* full adjust
* leotard back
* single position nursing clasp - side squeeze style
* seamless full cup (nearly a full cup, straps are just outside of apex)
* Inner support is a single circle (donut shaped) with a seam below the apex (not just the ... usual strap of elastic).
* unpadded, soft underwire
* Inner top edge of cup is edged with stretchy seaming. Outer cup edge is elastic that continues to top of band.
* Both inner and outer cups are contructed of a single layer of non-stretch, opaque knit.
* Soft, barely molded cups (no foam).
* Drop cup nursing access.
ABOUT ME: petite with wide, horizontal oval, slightly conical breasts
* average projection (not shallow nor super projected)
* average-set (one finger width of space between breasts)
* very wide roots (extend past the mid-axillary line)
* even horizontal fullness (just barely outer full)
* short root height, average vertical placement
* mix of firm & soft tissue (front molds to shape of bra, sides push wimpy wires away)
* conical shape (but will squish to round)
* full on top (2/4 shape, not even or very full) - BUT functionally even to FoB due to short roots and soft tissue
* petite (5'3") so have narrow frame
* front (anterior) rib flares (not usually a fit issue, but I like that longlines make them disappear)
Note: This is how it currently fits me. I don’t remember how it fitted post-partum, just that it didn’t fit.
* length: band rides up
* wings: height good, smooth line
Gore: Tacks. Height & width fine.
* Feel wide-set but don’t slip with movement.
* Adjust short enough.
* Wire sits on axillary breast tissue.
* Top of cup: wrinkles or gaps (expects more upper fullness)
* Bottom of cup: wrinkles or gaps (not enough immediate projection at wire). Wire pushed down to find more cup depth.
* Cup apex: fits (not too deep, too shallow, nor off-center)
* Give a round, projected shape.
Assessment & Plan:
* Didn’t fit when nursing and never returned, probably due to new parent exhausion.
* Have weaned last child so no longer need. SELL.
