This bra is so comfortable. It fits perfect like all my other SMs, and I love the navy. I'm not particularly crazy about the embroidery. The lilac is pretty and looks nice against the navy, but the pattern itself is a little underwhelming. The band is nice and snug at 65. It's also very soft. It's pretty stretchy and I could probably wear the middle hook comfortably, but it doesn't ride up and I feel secure on the loosest. So I'll stay there for now. The straps are in a good place and are soft and comfortable. They're wide and I like that, they feel stable and they don't dig. The adjuster moves easily and stays in place. The underwires are perfect. Right along my root and in my fold. Totally comfortable and may as well not be there for all I can feel them. Shape is up front and center, nice and green and natural.
MY SHAPE: Narrow, projected, short roots, close set, center full, even fullness (technically FOT but my short roots make me appear even most of the time)
FIT: This fits really well! The band is very soft and comfy. There is a tiny bit of gaping on my smaller side, but you can't tell through a shirt, so I don't really care. It fits my larger side beautifully. It's amazing how much more aware I am of tiny fit issues with the transparent cups of my SM bras - I do have to position and adjust this one carefully to avoid wrinkling at the bottom, I think I could use ...just the tiniest bit more projection at the wire, but overall it's a really good fit and I have nothing to complain about! The cut is a bit lower than my SF and BM bras, which is not a problem and is preferable for low cut shirts, but I did notice more "jiggle" up top.
APPEARANCE/QUALITY: I really love the look of this set. I noticed Bratabase's description says it's navy with pink flowers, but this is incorrect; it's navy with light purple flowers. The bra gives a rounded but compact shape; it's like a less "in your face" version of the SF and padded S bras. The texture of the embroidery might show through very thin shirts but I wore this with a waffle-knit thermal shirt and had no issues. The quality of materials seems to be top-notch. I have the matching briefs as well, and they fit as expected; the do have a ruffle all the way around both leg openings, which makes them less practical under form-fitting skirts or pants.
OVERALL: This is a gorgeous set that I'm glad to own! Very comfortable and cute too. Read more 188 more words
This is a gorgeous bra. The embroidery, lace, and color choices couldn't be better. Just lovely. The quality is great, too.
That said, it's not quite a perfect fit for me. The band/wing height is much smaller than I'd like to feel supported, and indeed, this bra gives the most "jiggle" of any bras I own. Perhaps it's not a perfect size fit, but it's just about! And besides all of that, it's quite comfortable. Wires are a bit short for me on the sides, but they don't poke.
Really, this is a lovely, fancy-feeling bra. I almost want to save it for special occasions. This is probably the first time I've wished I could have the matching panties!
Not sure how I managed to forget to review this one, but apparently I did. So here goes...
Yet another marvel from Ewa. This bra is gorgeous. I adore the deep blue coloring and the cute lavender floral details on the cup. I actually hate florals for the most part, but this is just simple and pretty and really works on the bra. They do not overpower the bra like some (I'm looking at you, pink/green/orange Samanta bra that I saw via fb last week. Shudder.), they are just perfect.
Another mesh one that is very comfy and great quality. Love this bra.
Also to note about the matching underwear: ...They are FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC. Seriously. I have NEVER in my life-not once- found a pair of underwear that fits my butt perfectly and doesn't cut into my hips. Not a single pair until this one. I have decently sized hips, but not much booty. So usually I find myself with so much extra junk in the trunk in just a regular pair of bikini cut underwear that I nearly always stick to thongs now (I save those few dumpy pairs of bikini cut underwear for my period where they rightly belong). Even if I sized down to a small, there is always extra material my butt doesn't fill up. This pair is just magic. It fits perfectly, it's pretty, and I don't have to worry about it cutting into my hips unflatteringly-so I can wear it under dresses. I am SO HAPPY!
I realize I've just spent so much more time talking up the underwear than the bra, but really, both are amazing. The Motylowate is pretty much sold out, but if you have the chance to get this bra, I say do it. You'll be happy you did. And if you're of the small butt/wide hipped variety like I am, go for the matching underwear. You won't regret it! Read more 209 more words
