    Didn't fit

    Well the band is two sizes too large (I measure in as a 28e/f), but it otherwise fits pretty well. I do well in halfcups, being on the shallower side of average, and very wide rooted. The gore is actually narrow enough for me, which is unusual and surprising. I LOVE the pistachio color, the pale yellow lace, the little double bow details. Fauve makes the must beautiful bras

      I wish Fauve were still around. Their bras are stunning. I got my first Fauve this year and ordered 2 more right away. Sad to have missed out before now. So pretty on you!

    So, I'm working on getting my bras to 100% (because I'm a completionist) and took pictures of this today.

    It doesn't fit :( it's obviously too small in the cup and the band is so loose. I bought it quite a while ago and it's in my cedar chest until cool weather, so it hasn't been on my body since I bought it.

    It's really soft and it's really pretty. There are lots of nice little details that made Fauve popular. I particularly like that the lace is gray and not white.

    I thought about keeping it anyway, but I fell out on the left side when I bent over. That's a deal breaker for me.

    My shape: slightly shallow teardrop/FOB with super wide/tall roots and very close-set tissue in the middle.

    This review is for the Spice colorway.


    After having noticed that almost all of my bras have wires that are too narrow for my boobs, and having coveted this adorable bra for a long time, I found it on clearance and decided to buy it. I probably should have gotten a 30FF, but that was sold out, and so I took a chance on the sister size. The cups are still not quite the right shape for me under my arms (it seems I need some flatter pointing-toward-my-shoulder-blades shaped wires instead of the standard ... round ones), but they encase all the tissue better than any of my other bras and are definitely wide enough, which makes them the best fitting wires I own.

    Having the band one size up means that I don't think the lace around the bottom of the band flips up as much as it would otherwise, which is nice, although over the course of the day (which was admittedly more active than any other normal day on which I would have worn this bra) I still found myself having to adjust a lot. It feels pretty snug, and the boning definitely keeps it in place, but I can pull it away from my back way more than 2 fingers' worth. I may try to alter it as it stretches. Also, after a day of inadvertent heavy lifting, sweating, and generally working harder than I meant to, the bottom ends of the boning started to chafe a teensy bit and itch, but I do not intend to put this bra through the ringer again. It seemed to shift down to sit slightly too low on my ribcage after about 6 hours, too, but I'm not sure if that was the workout or the 32 size band at fault.

    Looking at the photos makes me realize that the band in back seems to sit higher than the rest of my bras, making it look too tight at the top and giving me a bit of a muffin top. Hooking it on the tighter set makes the pooching worse and doesn't bring it down any farther, so I'm not really sure what to do about that.

    I always have trouble with center gores, and not because the wires dig into my sternum, but because my breast tissue is so close in the center that the wires simply sit on top of it. For this reason I have always had to love balcony and half-cup bras from afar. This was true at first for this bra, but to my surprise it was not only better than any other I've tried, but it also didn't bother me. At all. And I am a sensitive, fussy lady about my clothes! I don't understand it, but it makes me love this bra so much more. Seriously! It comes up so high, and I didn't care! So good.

    It's super supportive, too! Considering how open it is on top, it held me up throughout the day and was a great shape and the light padding is very natural. (Plus, squishable cups are great for not worrying about when traveling, which I do a lot). This is the only bra I have ever worn that I know for sure doesn't cut into my super-tall breast roots at all, while still having a short enough cup to not gape on the top and a tall enough cup to cover me. (In most cases the cup is too short and my nipples pop over the top because my boobies are shallow and so tall, especially with padded balconettes.)

    Orange is a color I didn't think to find in a bra, but I love brights and this one is just so adorable. I have been sad ever since they discontinued it because it's so good, and I don't think the color, satin fabric, or details make it look cheap at all. True, I would be happier if the lace on the front of the band or the straps extended past the side seams, but you can't have everything, and it is my new favorite. A++

    Didn't fit

    My oh my. These are some very wide cups. I don't think I've experienced this sensation since I wore my old three-sizes-too-big Curvy Kate Emily.

    It's a very pretty bra. The Jade colourway is a lovely antique green with black vines and florals swirling across the three-part cups. There's wavy black lace on the top of the cups and bottom of the band, on the centre gore is a bow with another bow on top with little teardrop crystals hanging on the ribbons, and even the back closure has some nice detailing. The straps have a little bit of decoration, but honestly I wish there were more.

    The gore doesn't ... lie flat, probably because of the wide gore and maybe also the wires. Since it's a longline, it's still rather supportive, and my boobs aren't attempting a jailbreak. The fabrics are soft and comfortable.

    The quality feels a lot better than sister brand Freya's longlines. I've read that the lace at the bottom of the band flips up on some, but on me it doesn't, or at least it doesn't feel/look as bad as it does in my Freyas (which usually have the band sneaking up in between the wires and my IMF - it's a weird feeling)

    I went up a size in this as it stops at a G cup and I've always wanted a 30GG in these styles. The band feels good, not too tight (important in longlines as it compresses a larger area of your ribcage and therefore your lungs), but it still stays put. The cups, as I mentioned, have sufficient volume, but are too wide. Why is it so hard for designers to make half cups for projected and narrow boobs?

    One thing that's worth mentioning is the lack of more than 2 colums of eyes. I noticed there are 4, 5 and even 6 hook extenders cheap on Ebay, which I will be buying and adding to it.

    30F

    Didn't fit

    This bra is very very beautiful. The satin is a beautifully bright orange and the lace is pretty and delicate and classy. However, there are two issues which made me not mark "Appearance: Excellent".

    First, the longline band flips over the top of my belly. Second, the side boning bubbles a little and sticks out. This does not look perfect, but it is still a very beautiful bra. The cups are small for the size, and I quadboob a bit in the inner part.

    It still gives me full, round cleavage for low-cut tops and is very sexy. It is currently not comfortable as I gained weight and the band is a little tight. However, I hope to lose a couple of kilos. For now, it's a sexy bra to wear for shorter periods of time.

    So beautiful. And comfortable. I'm happy I found this in a sister size. I will be shortening the band significantly.

    This bra is great! I don't know why people spemd so much money on Ewa Michalak of there is Fauve.
    At least for me Fauve is perfect. The details are stunning and I love the romantic style. They are bras like baroque pillows for boobs.

    I'd say this bra does allow centre fullness and immediate projection.
    It's stunning and verry good quality!!
    So sad it doesn't really fit me! :(

    Simply beautiful. I usually wear a 30D, but this one only came in a 32B and I just had to try...I knew it probably wouldn't, but it breaks my heart that it didn't fit. It's true to size and well-made overall, though it arrived with some flyaway threads from the embroidery on the front of the cups. Will have to sell this one; it deserves better than just sitting in a drawer.

    Such a lovely bra! As i was happy with my plunge version, bought this one. Because there was no 32DD, i took 32D and unfortunately is too small..such a shame. Love the pattern on it and the quality as fauve always provides.
