After 7 long weeks of waiting for my EM package (5 weeks of that being 'in transit'), I was not as happy as I'd hoped. If I had to pick a winner of my two purchases though, it is this one! Thankfully because its so beautiful (love teal and black together) and I also got the matching panty! When I first pulled these bras out of the (horribly beat up) package, I actually thought they looked a bit small! Wide and thick but small. I am used to pulling tall Comexims out of the package and thinking they could never fit, yet always do of course. I was ... worried about these for the complete opposite reason.
When I put Pl Rapsodia on, the cleavage was out of this world! My boobies were beautifully lifted and squeezed together so tight! However they were also bursting out of the top. A lot. I ended up experimenting with the cookies and when I took out the one from my bigger boobie, it wasn't so extreme anymore. I liked how it looked leaving the cookie in on my smaller boob, and next time I will probably try doubling up. I do think the cups are a little small still but it is wearable. It passed the shirt test https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> The tag on the side of one of the cups says XL. I am assuming it relates to the wires? It is a good choice for me. Too wide but not by too much. I have accepted that bras will always be somewhat too wide for me, even in the most narrow of brands. The gore feels like its in the perfect place! Although I usually need to wear it for longer to really know. I am pretty close set and I have a really bony sternum so I tend to get uncomfortable no matter what. The material is really beautiful on this one too! I love the flowery lace overlay.
On the flip side, it does have its fair share of problems. The band is really stretchy and loose. I had tried a 70 band like they wanted me to and I was swimming in it so I special ordered these and I feel like they are still more like 70s. I went straight to the second and third hooks on both of them and the band was still riding up in the back! Measuring them they have SO much give. They pretty easily go beyond 32" I just didn't want to pull them any further. I feel a bit cheated on that lol. The worst part is the armpit area though. The wires may be a good width but they come up so high! I have high set boobies so both the wires and the wing dig into and rub in my armpit area. It isn't very comfortable but I am hoping after it is a little broken in that it might feel better. I don't think there is a fix to that so I'm not sure EM is the best brand for me. I will probably wear this one in a bit before I order more. Sadly https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />
Oh and I ordered the thong in a 36. I sort of went according to the chart. I was on the cusp of 36 and 38 with 35.5" hips. It technically puts me in the 38 measurements by like mms. But I am glad I did not go with that because it fits really well and if anything its a little big. It doesn't cut in though which is nice. This is a beautiful set and I love the way it makes my cleavage look! But I hope it gets more comfortable with wear.
