This bra is a gorgeous shade of green with mint straps, with beige underneath, and beige cookie pockets. I love mint, a sadly underutilized clothing color. I’m still experimenting with EM cuts and I think I found one that actually works with my shape. The pictures were taken with the cookie only on the right side, as placing the cookie on my larger breast makes the cup painfully too small.
The band on this one is tighter than the CHP Noir but not unbearably so. Also, despite it being taller than the CHP, the angle makes it work for me. There’s a small gap along the top edge of ...the cup that closed up after I washed the bra. There’s an odd point on the cups due to the stitching, but this cannot be seen through clothing. Under clothing it gives me a nice rounded shape.
The gore on this bra is the best part. I always have wire marks on my breasts from the gore. I had resigned myself to this being a constant issue. No wire marks with this one. I’m very pleased with this bra. Read more 78 more words
I spent about a month doing various returns/exchanges with Zathiya before I settled on a 75GG in this bra, and I am pretty sure I snagged the last one in my size! I'm going to say it's true to size because all the bras I've bought recently (Panache, Cleo, Curvy Kate, Fantasie) are in the 32H/34GG neighborhood and this fits just as well. The band is comfortable on the loosest hooks; I have to wear the asymmetry pad on my right (see pics) but once I do that the cups fit just right with no gaps or spillage.
This bra is so, so pretty in person! The aqua color ...of the lace in all the stock photos is true to life. The straps are a very light blue. The lace goes all the way around, which is both a nice aesthetic detail and adds some structure to the band. In some of my other bras the elastic on the top and bottom of the band is much tighter than the band material, which leads to extra back rolls, but this one doesn't do that. I tried to add a picture of my back so you can see how nice and smooth the band is.
My bra has a tiny spot on the left cup at the T-junction of the seams where the lace doesn't lie flat. It's not a fit issue, it's actually from the way the bra was sewn, but it's not visible under clothes and I think it will probably smooth out a bit with time. The bra was shipped to me in a polymailer, and it was folded right along the seam at the top of the cup, and I think that is contributing to it. I think this is also making it a bit pointier than it would normally be.
This is the only bra I own that actually gives me cleavage! I have very very short roots and it's nice to own a plunge so the gore doesn't come up to my chin. I wore this bra for 8 hours at work the day after I received it, and it was comfortable enough I forgot I was wearing it. Despite the way it may appear in the pictures, the gore does tack very well.
Pros: Great cleavage, makes me look thinner from the front because it pulls everything in to the center, the material used on the band is appropriately firm
Cons: Lace is very textured and shows under thin shirts; minor torpedo shape (will probably get better once bra has been washed, see above comments about it getting crushed a bit during shipping) Read more 327 more words
This is a GORGEOUS bra that sadly doesn't fit me. I wanted to try some EMs so I snagged this one from Zathiya to try, and it'll be going back. The band is just too big; I would need to wear t on the tightest hooks. The cup is at least a size too large as well, even with the cookies. I'd need a 75gg or possibly 75g in this one, but I can already tell I love the plunge shape!
