    Used to fit

    This bra is wonderful.
    I was a little concerned about shape, given that I had tried this on a few times, and some of them (same make and size) gave me a weird " > " shape. Not perky, almost downward 7. This one gives me a more rounded shape, it's extremely comfortable, gore has little separation(thank God ), fabric is one of the most unnoticeable/ comfy I've owned/tried, wires aren't too wide, really as good as I think I'm going to get (I'll explain), and band is snug, but not too snug.

    As for those wires, I've come to the sort of depressing conclusion that because of my tubeyness, ... even if it isn't super severe (which makes me really sad for more severe cases), I'm never going to have "perfect" wires that come just an inch or so from my boobs, without sacrificing the depth that I really need. Looking back, I think this is why fitters have given me 32D and 30DD and said they fit. When I go up, the wires are too big, but depth is perfect. If I had the wires of most 32D/30DD's and the depth of a 32DD/30E, that would be perfect, but I may be sacrificing shaping then also.

    The Freya Rio was the best I've tried, wire and depth wise, but those wires were also incredibly painful if worn a whole day.

    There's a little extra fabric in the sides of this bra, but, that's how it's going to be for me I've realized. My biggest issues have been extra fabric in the sides and bottoms because I'm not fully developed- and even losing the fullness I did have. I'm not super comfortable with photos right now, as they're just looking more constricted and deflated. I've been wearing my Freya Deco way too much to hide it, but even that is becoming large in the cups.
    I think I mentioned that I haven't had a car to get to doctor appointments, so I stopped taking what is basically an androgen blocker, which had caused a little boob growth.

    Aside from making my own bra, a perfect bra doesn't exist for me because of my tubies, which has just become exacerbated by not taking Spiro and losing some boobage.
    Depressing, and that's why I've lost some excitement over trying new bras -and it's sooo costly- but this is close enough, and it provides good support and everything else that I really think I need in the long run.

    I'd say for those who need more narrow wires and projected cups in general, the Susanna is really great. I wouldn't recommend for anyone super shallow, but I think this may work for someone "average" also.
    As for unlined, the wires are less narrow than the Rio and Curvy Kate that I had, but overall, shape, support, style, fabric, depth, and comfort, this bra is up there next to my Freya Hopscotch :p
    I'm super happy that I found this for less than the near $80 Nordstrom sells it for!
    It's one of the best bras I own.

    • Claudette bras are my personal narrow-wire heaven, I wonder if they would work for you. I ordered a 30C Paramour from their encore sale. The band runs larger and the cups deeper than Cleo bras (that is what I happen to have to compare). I can't find the link on my mobile but it's on their corporate website.

    • runs_with_scissors Thanks for the recommendation :D I'm kind of kicking myself because I just passed up 2 Claudette Paramours! haha
      I love the style, but I've become so worried about buying the wrong thing.

      I'm glad to know they should work, I'll be sure to look around for more ! :D

    • My new one doesn't totally work for me, I just wrote a really long review of it and I'll eventually get around to posting some pictures.

    I'm in two minds about this bra. At first I thought it fit perfectly swell and was terribly excited about it, being the first bra I've found to do so since starting This Whole Thing. Now that I've worn it to work a few days, I think it might be be a little too snug and a little too light on coverage on the sides.

    Overall, it's gorgeous. The fabric is a little scratchy, but I haven't washed it yet and it may yet soften.

    Thought it was a good fit, but now reconsidering. Too small?

    Very pretty bra, but I should know by now that this style doesn't work for me. The bra itself is lovely and it looks well made. The band is snug and the fabric is comfortable.

    This bra is STUNNING! Wow - sexy yet elegant, incredibly soft lace. I am so sad that it doesn't work for me. I didn't get a very good picture of it but on my larger side the top of my breast tissue escapes out creating a 'lump', despite the fact that I ordered my standard Fantasie size, 30E. And it certainly doesn't cover most of my breast even though it is supposed to be a full coverage bra (athough I don't get quad boob due to having sloping breast tissue). It almost feels like the cup is half a size too small. Also, the back feels stretchier than other Fantasie bras I own - I would probably try to size down in the back and up in the cup if Fantasie made a 28 back. Alas, it was not meant to be - so jealous of the women this bra will work for :(
