This is my first attempt at getting the S and wow! What a bra. I think the S might work for me! This padded bra does not give me the same issues that Comexim padded bras give me (square boob shelf.) Aisha suggested I go up at least one cup size from my BM size and this is the result. It appears to fit perfectly when I first put it on. But it isn't tacking… at all. Not even a soft tack. It's close and it's hard to see that it's not tacking bc it's so deep btwn my bosoms. But I can feel it floating. As ...long as I don't move, I don't quad. As soon as I start walking, I got big mounds on top of my boobs. I already took out the pads so that's not the problem. Also this band… lord is it tight. I thought I was good until I saw the pics of my back. Thoroughly disgusting. This band is much tighter than a 65 BM band. Plus these straps are comically short - not sure what happened there but I have them all the way loose. I have emailed Aisha to let her know my issues. I guess I need to try a 65KK or maybe even a 70K.
Also of it just me or do my boobs look really low on my chest? The breasts are nice and round and awesome looking… just seem to be riding low.
There was no doubt for me that this bra is an absolute must have, I just had to decide which cut to choose. As a new, and very enthusiastic, convert to the S cut, the choice was pretty clear, even if I love the CHP cut and I visually prefer it to the PL or S, regardless of the design. I just can’t praise enough this pattern, it’s so colourful and bright and I love the watercolour style. I tried to figure out why it’s called Opium and I concluded that these flowers are supposed to be poppies. The straps, the cup edge and bows match great the pattern. ...The cups are covered with a very soft material (I hope it won’t pill in the future). As in the Glamour, the straps are a little shorter that in Pralinka and Letnia noc (or even in my BMs). I was unsure about the cup shape that seemed weird to me on stock photos. I knew that the fit was different, but I didn’t know why – was it because of softer wires or a closed cup edge? Finally, in my size, the difference is barely noticeable. The cup edge is, indeed, a little bit more closed on top than in Glamour, but I don’t need to size up (very accommodative breast tissue). The only visible particularity is a more pointy shape. To top it off, Opium is very comfy, but these days I feel good in all of my bras, probably because of my weight gain. Read more 144 more words
The cups are a bit small, and the band is tight. My UB was about 32 inches and 75 is perfect. I'm used to wearing 34J in UK, so I got 75J, but it appeared to be at least 2 cup sizes too small, even without the padding. The shape was really good (I'm very projected and narrow, fuller on bottom), so I will try a bigger size. The padding on the bottom is removable.
This bra is Beautiful. The color is gorgeous, as are the detailing. Unfortunately The cups are way too large for me as is visible in the picture. I only wore it to check the fit and take pictures, all done within an hour of receiving. The straps are wide and comfy. And there are more hooks to help with most band issues.
