After loosing some weight it fits me better. I have about this same horizontal breast perimeter (29.5 cm to 29 cm), but now I have less tissue on the top (27.5 cm to 24.5 cm vertical). Before loosing weight I've been thinking that it fits ok, cause there was no quadboob effect or anything, but it gave me pain after an hour of wearing. Now it is really supportive and comfortable...
I am a great fan of Fantasie's Helena bras, both the construction and soft materials used are outstanding quality. This is a very good everyday bra. Cupwise a size bigger than what the label says , more like a 30DD, maybe due to the stretchy material used for the cups. Out of rotation due to weight gain, just sitting at a bottom of a box and needs a loving home.
It’s comfortable and seems to fit correctly, but the cup shape is really unflattering. The fabric has a lot more stretch on the lower half of the cup, which gives it a *very* natural shape (meaning my breasts look just as flat and saggy as they really are...).
Extremely comfortable and sexy. I usually don't like tall gores because my boobs are pretty close set but the gore on this bra is so narrow that it really works and the tall gore just helps keep everything contained. I feel very sturdy and supported in the bra while maintaining a natural shape. This makes a good t shirt bra for being unmolded.
Band length: The band is a true 30" band, so on my 27" underbust, it feels a bit too loose and rides up on me.
Cups: On my 28FF/G breasts, the cups are too small. However, it doesn't look too bad since it is a full cup and it doesn't cut on top of my breasts. It also have a side support so my breasts don't have the east-west look in it. The centre gore also comes high up on me, which is not a problem for me because I don't mind it. At first it looks like it sits flush against my sternum, however, after I took it ...off, the red marks shows that it sits on my breasts tissue, albeit not too much. The cup separation also is a bit too wide for me. I will have to take in the centre gore. The sides don't come up too high, so it doesn't poke my armpit.
Lift: It doesn't lift too much, even though I have shorten the straps quite a lot. Maybe it's because I'm wearing a band size too big. Nevertheless, it doesn't look droopy either.
Appearance: The colour 'blackberry' is a gorgeous deep purple. Unfortunately the seaming where the lace part on top meets the satin part shows under my thin knit top.
Overall: It's a beautiful and comfortable bra. I'd still wear it even though it is too small for me. Read more 126 more words
The cups give my breasts a weird Madonna-like cone shape and there's not enough lift for them. The band stretches too much and rides up even in the tightest setting. The center sits flat against the sternum but it comes too high, so it keeps poking. The plastic "sidewires" bend from the bottom and poke to the sides.
