Turns out the user who sold this to me was correct, this bra is too small for me. It fits my smaller breast well of my smallest days, but my larger side quads way too much. The gore still tacks.
Gorgeous design and sturdy materials. The metallic accordion-style-ruffles show under most of my shirts (and are surprisingly stiff to touch), and the pom-poms are there to stay. The band seemed TTS before I altered it. Nice narrow wires and good projection - the wires fit me wonderfully. The tops of the cups may be a bit closed due to the trim? Hard to tell with it being too small for me already. There are 3 columns of 2 hooks and NO cookie pockets.
I know that Ewas HPs are the best bras for me when wearing lowncut tops or plain shirts. So when got my fingers on this one I bought it even if I really disliked the design. I don't know what so say about it, it fits like my two other HPs (round, not too projected, very low cut, perfect for my FOB breasts). I noted that the straps feel very stretchy, but its okay when wearing the bra. As i relly disliked the appearance of the bra I dyed it in brown. Afterwards the bra feels tighter and I need an extender but this was not before dying
Pros: This bra is gorgeous and sexy! I love the vertical seems, ribbon and embroidered straps. It seems very well constructed, and as long as I have the underwires high enough, it holds me in very securely and comfortably. Definately, the best fit I've found for my full on bottom pendulous breasts.
Cons: On my first day out with it, I wore it to a rave, and the centre gore started stabbing me half-way through the night, but this could have been due to all the extreme movement on my part (and it held me in even so).
I am not very fond of the shape it gives me, as it seems to have a minimizing effect. So, I will definitely try to find a CH next.
I just got this bra in the mail today from another user and so far I think it fits really well! I was apprehensive at first because it looked sooooo small! I also got a 65 in band which correlates to a 30 in band in USA/UK (which is what I wear currently, I measure 27 in tight, 29 loose) and everyone said it ran really tight so I was super nervous it'd be too tight. I think it feels great! The cups lay great, it feels very comfortable, the material is very beautiful. I'm in love so far!
Very pretty bra, but much more obviously pink than the stock photos. The cups seem large for a 30E, however, and the bra is constructed in such a "sturdy" way that it can be uncomfortable if you don't have much padding around your ribs, even if the band is big enough or even too big. The band seems tight for a 30 yet feels stretchy. It ended up being too big for me in the cups as well, sadly. I really wanted this bra as despite being pinky and flowery it gave some kind of a "snow recon" look (only in my opinion, of course).
