    Fauve Aurelia Padded Half Cup is another well-constructed, artful piece that makes the demise of Fauve all that much sadder. Although this style feels a little smaller in the cup than my gold-standard Emmanuelles, and still a hair wider in the UW than I'd prefer, I have nothing but love for how good this feels on. I have yet to try a Fauve bra that hasn't been well-constructed and secure. This style is no exception - my breasts feel contained, controlled, well-displayed and stylish in this lightly padded model. There are no irritating internal seams to chafe my nipples. The amount of projection is ... pretty darned decent and my breasts do not travel around the bra during the day - they stay where they were put. This has become a cue for me that a bra is a good fit. Ladies, if you have center-full breasts this style may not work for you - I have some obvious quadding near the gore. If I were to buy this again I'd go up a cup size - but otherwise would not change a thing. This magenta/pink satiny garment with lovely flower embroidery is a delight. Grab up those Fauve's on clearance, while you still can!

      ummm....2ks-rddit-80 , that's Aurelia, not Dominique. I think for the sake of the database you probly have to do a re-do with the measurements and all. :/

    • Thanks for the catch, I have no idea how I made that error but I've corrected the bra/measurements!

    • I figured out what happened when I pulled a bra out of my drawer this morning - it was Dominique! I have both. Hah. I took the measurements and photos at the same time yesterday but logged them to the wrong placeholder, which I added the day the bra came in. They are similar colors and styles so I just confused myself. I will need to measure and photo Dominque still.

    30F

    Didn't fit

    I got the Fuchsia Pink Fauve Aurelia Padded Half Cup Bra in 30F yesterday and decided almost immediately to return it. The top edge of the cups gapes. This is in contrast to the blue Fauve Emmanuelle Padded Half Cup Bra in 30F, which I have been wearing every third day since it arrived a couple weeks ago. The 30F Fauve Aurelia's band is noticeably looser than the 30F Emmanuelle's. I can't tell if this would affect how well the bra fits because the loose edges of the cups are totally distracting. I would consider exchanging for a 30E, hoping the underwire went far enough back on the ... sides, but the Aurelia's pink color is less vibrant than in product photos. In real life, the "Fuchsia Pink" is slightly muddied. The white, pink, and green embroidery and appliques are lovely.

    Fauve's high quality is evident in the Aurelia's fit and finishes. Like the Emmanuelle, the Aurelia does not pinch or poke anywhere. The cups are lined in the same soft, smooth fabric, and the underwires seem to be well cushioned.

    36F

    Didn't fit

    I love Fauve. I wish I could afford to buy all of them. Right now, I wish I could afford to just replace this one with a 34G - meaning, I think, that the darn thing is true to size. The band fits, technically, but I prefer a tighter fit. The cups are one size too small.
    I have a sheer Fauve in a 34G and it fits great, if a trifle large in the cup. With the padding on this one, I think a 34G would be spot on. I have considered taking the back in, but there is lace applique on both sides of the hooks. Alas.
    Pros: Absolutely the most beautiful bra I have ever seen - better than pictures even though it's more coverage than I'd expected. Attention to detail is just wow. True to size. Quality, comfort, shape.
    Cons: It's not my size! No really, the embroidery & lace overlays are impractical under many things. (Although I would work outerwear around it if it fit!)

  4. This is indeed a gorgeous bra that I bought from a fellow Bratabaser. (Then again, I'm partial to anything purple!) It was listed very high on my Recommendations. Not a perfect fit, but I should be able to modify it.

    The band is a little big on me, where I started off on the middle set of hooks. If I want to go snugger I can easily manage on the smallest set of hooks. Tag is still attached, so maybe that's from others trying it on before me. Or maybe I just need a 30" instead of a 32". Who knows!
    I noticed the wires ... are a narrow guage (1/8"?), feel much smaller in diameter than most, and consequently are quite flexible. The wires feel much wider while wearing than when measuring it. The cups are suited for FoT and fit me well only with good posture. Once I move around and live life they gape along the outer cup...enough for me to know it's there, and moreso on my smaller side. Somehow, it doesn't really show under clothing. (I should be able to cinch in the top of the cup just a bit by tacking the outer layer to the lining. I was able to do that on another bra that had developed an outward curl, and it was very successful.)
    The gore is definitely wide on me, and high. But because the wires are flexible they form into a V between my center full breasts. So even though it's not completely flat against my sternum, it's still manageable.
    The front straps are way over to my armpits...very annoying...again, a modification I can handle.

    As for personal preference, the cups give the appearance of pulling the girls too close together by a full 1-1.5" closer than normal for me. (It measures only 6" apex to apex). So combined with the wires being slightly wide on me it gives a minimized profile.

    Reduced open cups: prevents gaping.

    32F

    Hasn't set fit

    This review is based on trying this bra only briefly. Ultimately I decided to return it, as the gore seemed much higher on this particular model than on the other Fauve halfcups I own, at the same time that there was also less center projection. Also, I didn't care for this shade of dark pink (it looked more fuchsia in the stock pictures), however it's very reminiscent of Sleeping Beauty with the pale pink and bright green floral embroidery! The shape was quite flattering and very reminiscent of Cleo, lifted and very "green."

  6. This could be the epitome of a bedroom bra! The decollete-baring half cup is all cakes on a plate, heaving bosom stuff. Add purple satin, lace net overlay, abundant embroidery in shades of rose and red; I like to imagine this bra in candlelight... The rich embroidery detail is repeated at the straps and back clasp. Its a stunner. The luxurious quality is all Fauve, too: attention to detail and comfort. Very soft felt along the straps, band and wires; lightly padded cups lined in a smooth satiny fabric. The wires are wide to average, the band is quite stretchy (I had it on the tightest hooks), and the gore is low but narrow. Straps adjust almost all the way and are firm, giving good support, but I think they are fairly wide-set. Fauve has 2 cuts for their half cups, and while many fit me perfectly in a 32F, the Coco cut does not, it is too shallow for my immediate projection and also closed a bit up top. I wonder if Aurelia is cut more like Coco?

    32G

    Didn't fit

    Such a pretty design 💕 gorgeous detailing and a non-standard dusky shade of pink.
    This could be in the 'Disney princess' collection, then it should've been called Aurora!

    Sister sized to a 32G because this beauty was on sale: Sadly it's too small for me.
    My most common size is a 30GG but I've been leaning towards 30H. This 32 band is pretty loose (seems common for Fauve, Fantasie & Freya). Cups seem small for a 32G, or at least quite shallow! Gore doesn't tack in the least, lots of bulging and quad. Wanted to make it work but I can't ignore these issues.

    Anyway it's been sleeping in my drawer for a while now, tags still attached. So unless I loose a lot of weight and go down 1 or 2 sizes, I may have to let it go.

    Bra is very pretty and would fit well, but the cups are probably too small for me. This is probably my issue because I don't think I measured correctly

    This bra was a very weird fit, it's not a true half cup in my opinion more like an awkward balconette. The wires are also *very* wide. The widest I've ever seen on a bra. This would be a dream come true for some, but not me. I have an average to narrow root, shallow and FoB breasts so this was the perfect storm for creating the strangest boob shape ever.
    The same is true for the following other bras:

    -Fauve Emmanuelle Padded Half Cup Bra
    -Fauve Veronique Padded Half Cup Bra
    -Fauve Lingerie Aurelia Padded Half Cup Bra
    -Fauve Dominique Padded Half Cup Bra

  10. The colour and detaliling is gorgeous, but despite thinking any half-cup bra with cups constructed from 3 pieces would suit my boobs perfectly (because of Fauve Carlotta Padded Half Cup Bra (0101) ) , this is not the case. My boobs look somewhat flat on the top, which is disappointing. Also, the straps are too far apart, so the cup sticks out on the side because I force the straps to sit narrower on my shoulders. The bra is very comfortable, and so far stretched only a bit.
