I know I said I said I'd wait for a full day of wearing it before writing a review, but apparently when it comes to sharing bra news, I'm impatient. So I'll add info if there's anything additional to add when I wear it for a full day.
So this bra works as an everyday staple. It's solid black and the lower half is made of a thicker material, that (to me) feels similar to the material on the bravissimo's sports bra. It's not quite the same. But they're similar in terms of thickness and stiffness (it's not too stiff but it does have some structure to it). It ... also has two vertical seams. The upper half consists of a folder over stretchy tulle. Now as much as a like the concept, what happens to me when I wear it, is that the top of that fold forms a little lip that prints through. So your mileage will vary on how you feel about that.
The maximum and minimum cup depth were recorded at 14.3 inches and 12.5 inches respectively. I had entered the maximum cup depth in the measurement table. he maximum cup depth was measured by stretching the cup over the knee and the minimum cup depth by hovering the cup between the knees and hanging the tape measure and recording that value. The band measures 23 inches not stretched and 28.8 inches stretched.
This bra has a few details such as a button at the gore and straps, as well as flower pattern on the straps, that takes it a step above basic. It really is a wonderful looking bra and quite comfortable at that.
The material is smooth against the skin and I have not found it to be itchy. As with other 65/30 bands, I hook it up on the second tightest hook and it could go tighter. Unfortunately, as it regards the cups there is some quadding on my larger side and a small bit on the smaller one.On a side note I just realised that one of the side pics may have made it look larger that it really is, due to the quadding on my larger side (it's behind the smaller one) and the lighting. So I'll make a note there.
I also feel like the gap between the straps and the body are more noticeable on this one, in comparison to the BMs. The gore doesn't lie flat either..it's maybe about half a finger - to a finger away from the sternum.
That being said, I really like this bra. I like the feel of it and the rounded shape it gives. So while this one is a miss. I don't count it that way.
Sometime in the future I'll probably try and SF again, but in a larger cup size and see how that works. The next on my to-buy list though, is the brownie bra.
