Sooooooo.... this bra is beautiful, that can't be denied. The navy lace on red is such a great colour combo.
Unfortunately, for me this bra shows perfectly why I dislike and don't wear padded bras (even if it's a touch too big). BTW All the photo are with (both) cookies in except those where I say there's no cookies.
See when you have tissue as soft as I do, it tends to do the yoghurt thing. It just flops into cups and settles in there and that's really it. So being slightly FoB (even with my freakishly tall roots) it shows perfectly here I can barely fill out the top of ...the cup. Add to it I probably could have done with a 70G when it comes to this bra because the cups are most definitely too big, and it's a disaster all over.
I don't know if Pl is one of those cuts you need to size up in? I did size up to 70GG and I think that I could have easily done with my calculator size 70G.
I don't think I can say much about the Pl cut that others have not said. I will say that the cookie pockets are brilliant, but the whole 'construction' feels incredibly *bulky*. The band on this is extremely loose, more like a loose 75 than a 70, honestly! I absolutely hate the shape this bra gives, lol. It looks SO unnatural to me. I wasn't feeling the support. Maybe due to size, or maybe cause I'm just not used to that kind of support where the bra does all the work for you. Most padded I ever wore was spacer foam.
But I will say the experiment was successful. Now I know not to purchase Pl, Chp or any of those cuts. I do wonder if the S is a lot different. In photos it doesn't seem to be and it looks like I would not have a good time with it either. So I guess my absolute hatred towards padded bras continues to be completely justified.
With the bra I also got the thong. At size 38 it's very stretchy and fits perfectly (I normally buy like size 42 and even 44 in panties I wanna be reeeeally comfortable in). So that's a surprise.
Overall, IDK what to do with this bra. I don't necessarily want to sell it because it would be a pain shipping it, lol. I might just keep it in case I experience yet another growth spur but fingers crossed that doesn't happen. Read more 308 more words
As of now, this is my best-fitting bra but it is going to need some improvements and alterations and I am still going to need a custom. As far as Ewa likes to fit their bras, I am sure this would fit my back and my smaller breast to them, however, I need a tighter band to hold up this weight and I already have it set on the smallest hook. My smaller breast JUST fits with a bit coming out but the larger one has some noticeable spilling out. I also bought S Szykus which cut into me more but the plunge wires magically ...seem to accommodate more tissue. My breasts are also very centered.
It is truly a beautiful bra and I was surprised at how thick the padding is on this. I am not used to wearing padding but it just looks fantastic- on and off. The straps are very stretchy and I have them tightened all the way. The band is very stretchy as well and made of two separate panels sewn together with the outer panel soft to the touch. I would prefer a heavy duty band like the fabric Kris Line used on their Brilliant bra in black- PERFECTION.
Despite having very narrow shoulders, I can't say that the width of the straps is very noticeable. I have only just tried it on and haven't worn it around but perhaps the straps don't slide because I have them tightened all the way and they are stretchy and digging into my shoulders. This is not a problem for me, however. I'm used to it.
The only thing that does bother me about this bra is the wires, which still feel wide but thank goodness not high like Panache Jasmine/Envy! Kris Line wires are still the best for me. Hopefully all this bra will need is some bending to my shape
The cleavage in this baby- OHHH, MY. I haven't seen my girls look that amazing in five years when I was about a 30HH and hadn't nursed any babies yet.
I'm on a weight loss track as many of us are in January so this is a keeper. Read more 268 more words
It fit! Woohoo. I had originally ordered this as a 75J, which was too small after scooping and swooping but upon initial placement looked fine. This fits perfectly after scooping and swooping. I'm so excited that it worked.
Just like my previous review,the bra is absolutely lovely. It is a bright red with a navy lace (almost looks black in some photos). The plunge style seems to be very nice for me. I'm glad to have a bra which actually can work with lower neckline blouses.
Wire width is on the narrow side. They fit me well, but are much more narrow than similar sized bras from @Panache or @Cleo. ...They feel very comfortable and don't feel too tall as to poke my armpits and the gore seems low but not so low that I feel like my breasts are going to fall out.
The band is supportive. I could probably go with a 70 band, but the 75 does the job (perhaps as I am losing weight I will order future Pl bras in a 70 band). The straps are very tough to adjust, though they feel secure.
The bra is very comfortable. I am super pleased it fits upon reordering it up a size as it is so pretty. Read more 99 more words
My first plunge in who knows how long! I'm pretty excited about it.
The gore fits nearly flat, only maybe the top 1/5 sits off my sternum but I'm not sure how well a plunge will tack anyway. Wires are comfortable, narrower than my @Panache and @Cleo bras and pretty comparable with my other @Ewa Michalek bra. The cup depth is almost shocking. When the bra is laying flat, it seems like it'll be too small, but once on it accomodates quite well. After scooping and swooping, it is still a great fit. I have a little quadboob but I'm not positive it's enough to warrant going up ...to a 75JJ. I think maybe without the pads it might do the trick. It might just be due to the shape. The band fits like a typical 34 band, and it's quite comfortable. I love the shape this bra gives.
I didn't need to adjust the straps on this one, but they are also a smidge on the thicker side. The lace is such a beautiful navy over the bright red cups. I think this bra is absolutely lovely. Read more 80 more words
