guys, this bra. this bra! its the most gorgeous thing i have ever put on my body, and even if it fit terribly i would love it forever and never let it go. its BEAUTIFUL. i'd been lusting after the Coco for ages, and im so happy i finally took the plunge! pale green satin, creamy lace, pearls and bows and hnnnggg i want all of them forever! why did fauve have to be discontinued?! im going to be scouring ebay for them, especially the pale pink version.
the fit itself isnt too bad actually, though its not perfect. i bought a 34F, since 34FF ... was out of stock, and im never sure what size i am anymore anyway. i was also pretty sure the cups ran a bit deeper, and since all my fullness is on the bottom anyway, i thought sizing down would at worst make me look more pushed up. it feels like the depth and width of the cups are good, though i would love if the sides were higher and contained more of my tissue. i actually get a little bit of gaping along the top edge, but that happens with nearly every bra, because of the lack of upper fullness. its annoying, and bugs me when i move, but at this point ive been wearing freya halfcups nearly 24/7 and they gape way worse, so i can deal. the gore is a bit too wide, but i run into that everywhere, especially half cups (and again- not nearly as bad as the freyas!). from my cursory try on, the straps dont feel too wide, and they arent a scratchy material. the band is just the tiniest bit snug, but i expected that from fauve and a single hook on the extender is perfect.
all in all, i think i will be keeping this one around! its too pretty for me to want to ruin by wearing to work, but itll hopefully get some use on my free time. and if im lucky, i will collect them all!
