Me: Narrow roots, narrow shoulders, evenly round, lots of immediate projection, very soft tissue, slightly FoB, slightly centre full, splayed, never met a gore I didn't like, left-heavey by more than a cup size, 31" underbust, but prefer tight band with extender. Panache, Freya size 30GG
I keep trying Fantasie side supports because I like the shape, but they really are too wide and shallow for me in general. This is the best fit I've found: it has lots of immediate projection and accepts centre fullness - it soft tacks, but it is but wearable. However, the straps cut in on my smaller side even ...with the cookie, and the shape is pretty minimized and slightly upsidedown seven.
Straps are ribbed and scalloped and fully adjustable. No side boning, but good firm wires with taller centre gore and wings. Three hooks, but set at 2 cm so a little harder on my North American extenders. Cups and frame are no-stretch, but a little give on the bias, nylon with two layer no-stretch mesh on the top part. The back of the band is stretch. I got the "Violet" colour which is a deep blue purple. Read more 95 more words
There are no obvious fit issues, and it's a beautiful bra - I love the color and the lace. Unfortunately, I hate the shape. It actually seems to push my boobs downward, creating and the seam of the side support panel creates a weird groove in the side of my breast, almost like wearing wires that are too narrow. I get the impression it just doesn't scale up that well in G+ cups.
Measured on tightest hook: Even though cup separation was marked as not a problem since it was not digging into breast tissue- very flattened shape with wires going up to the end of armpit. Buy smaller band, narrow gore.
I also own the brown version of this bra in the same size, so much of this review will be repeated.
I really like this bra. It's gorgeous while also being very supportive and seperates my breasts nicely, though I have noticed that the black is slightly smaller in the cups than the brown, though not enough to size up. The straps are wide, though not wideset, and the wires' shape feels odd to me under my arms, like they slope back instead of coming up vertically to encompass my breast, which makes them feel slightly too wide, but not a dealbreaker at all. The quality is high, and the only comfort issue is that the pattern gets imprinted into my skin if I lean against it for any extended length of time. Overall, my favorite bra so far.
It's a nice bra! It definitely doesn't have a lot of immediate center projection, which I usually need, but the construction of the cups allows for my boobs to spread out a bit in the cup so they aren't cut off by the lack of immediate center projection. Comfy.
I really like this bra. The high gore seperates my center-heavy boobs much better than the t-shirt styles I have been wearing, and the mesh still feels quite supportive (and does show off half a nipple). The straps are quite wide and pretty, and the bra is true to size. The cup has two vertical seams, one that goes all the way up to the strap and one that stops at the middle of the cups where the mesh starts, indicating where the nipple should be. The detailing on it is lovely, it's very soft, and I've found it to be quite comfortable. The seams do show through a very thin or tight shirt, though.
I was really excited to try this bra when it first came out because I liked the pattern on the cups. There's something about side support bras that my breasts do not get on with. The side profile view is not...preferred. The ice blue colorway is a lot prettier in person too; I tried this on while in Nordstrom.
