The Margot is the bra that made me realise the world of DD+ cups was So Much Better than the matrix and its sea of foam cups I'd been hating, but thinking I was trapped in, for years.
The bra is just as, if not more beautiful than, its promotional photos promise. The mesh is incredibly sheer, the embroidery delicate but cannily placed to provide a slightly anchoring top edge and also hide any peekaboo nipples. (Seriously. It's amazing.) I'm not a fan of bows on bras in general, simply because they're everywhere, but there's something about the boldness of the oversized burgundy bow on this one's gore ... that appeals to me.
In this size range the cups have only a single vertical seam. Fully adjustable straps. I'd read that the band on the Margot runs extremely firm, but in fact I find it one of the loosest/stretchiest of my EM bras -- but I've also heard EM bands have been running increasingly firm/tight lately, so perhaps the Margot was simply the first of that trend. Four columns of hooks on the band -- hallelujah!
Low and narrow gore is wonderful news for those with close-set breasts, but may not be overly friendly to those with very soft tissue or loose skin.
Gives a very forward, lifted and rounded shape. I'm totally addicted.
