I really wish this bra fit me. Like the other EM bras, it is well-made, with a firm band (that has just enough stretch), supportive cups, and nicely covered underwires that don't seem to be going anywhere. The four sets of hooks is great for those who anticipate fluctuations, and the gore is SO narrow! I love narrow, high gores, and this delivers.
The outside of the cups is covered with a slick, satiny fabric that gives it a more expensive feel, as opposed to the strange cups of the HP Nina. I like the lace edging, and the decorations on the straps, which don't impact the strap adjustment ... as much as I feared. The inside of the cups is a smooth, gentle cotton. My boobs often find every single bra itchy, so this is just what I wanted from my new bras.
The dark tan color shows against my pale skin, and is too dark to wear under a white shirt. The lace and seams *barely* show with my thin, clingy fabric. Someone with a darker skin tone would do just fine.
However, when ordering these bras, I overshot my sizing. So the 55 cm band is a little too small for my 65 cm chest. (The 65G Nina is much too big in the band, and a little too small in the cup.) This is fine with an extender. But the cups are a half size too big for one boob, and a full size too big for the other. The cut of the bra means that my boobs feel like they are swimming! (In my 55HH HP Koktajl, the bra pulls my breasts towards my chest, so this is less of a deal.)
My boobs are bottom-heavy, not full on top at all, and losing their firmness. I suspect that if I were more full on the top or had a firmer tissue, the too-big cups would be less of an issue. After all, I am too big for the next cup size down.
