My shape: full on bottom, soft tissue, narrow shoulders/roots. Special thanks to MamaPagan for sending me this bra (and many others!) to try on! She actually threw this in the box for my sister to try on, so I can't really review the fit of this as well as it's much too small for me. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> Appearance: The royal blue color of this bra is so pretty! The fabric is a stiff, embroidered lace. The embroidery travels up the straps, too. There is a thin piece of blue elastic at the top of the cups, and a tiny gem charm on the gore. This bra is super pretty! Hopefully it fits my sister! If not, I'll offer it as a giveaway here.
Allegra 30FF I am adding this bra for data/informational purposes only. This Bra is not owned by me at the time of addition to the database.
Allegra is an underwire, unpadded side support bra. I got it in electric blue.
The band measures 25” to a max 34.75” with 2 hooks and 3 rows of eyes.
Cup Depth as measured by: 1 Hovering the cup between the knees, then placing the tape measure into the cups without any resistance. This measurement is: 10”
2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance. This measurement is: 10.75”
I feel ...these two figures give you a general idea of the minimum and maximum depth that the cup can accommodate, just like the flat and stretched band measurements do with bands. Since Bratabase only has one cup field, I enter the larger of the two, as it’s this larger number that determines if a cup is going to fit me or not since I am on the max end of the cup scale, but do realize that some may need the lower number to determine fit for their needs, so I will always include both figures in the reviews for full disclosure.
The cup material is quite stiff. It feels very scratchy, but may soften with wash and wear.
I bought this bra as it was incorrectly labeled on eBay as 30H both US and UK, but was in fact a 30FF UK, making it too small in the cup. Disappointing as it is gorgeous in color.
This bra is great for those that need that side support to control side boob. Also great lift for those with bottom heavy boobs. It gives them a nice lifted appearance. And this bra is so beautiful. I just wish I'd gotten the right size!
The best bra I have at the moment. Good coverage and support. A bit high under the armpits, but not enough to be uncomfortable. I would have liked the straps to be a bit more elastic, they are very firm.
