My shape: FOB teardrop with lots of upper fullness and shallowness that makes me functionally even allover, loads of immediate projection but only moderate overall projection, mid-height, center-set, with a small conical ribcage and super wide roots (on me, anyway), and very firm tissue that fights back when pushed around by padding.
This review is for the Rouge colorway.
I found this listed on reddit as a NWOT steal, and while I really wanted the biscuit colorway, I jumped on it. It's beautiful! I'm so glad I did, because it's a great fit on par with my 30F - Fauve » Pearl Padded Half Cup Bra (0221) ... and my 30F - Fauve » Marla Padded Half Cup Bra (0291) , but less open at the neckline.
This bra is kind of shallow in the bottom of the cups, but Fauve Magic means it doesn't matter on me, and I get a gorgeous rounded shape out of it instead. It is a little more minimized than I might want, but overall it's so comfy I don't care. I think it's also a little shallow right around the gore, but aside from a tiny bit of quadding when I stick my chest out, it's otherwise not noticeable.
The wires are lovely and feel like the perfect width on me. After checking with my fingers and wriggling around, they might be slightly wider than my Fauve Pearl, so the side fullness is a little more spread out in the side of the cup.
The straps are embellished! I love that sort of thing. They are wide and comfy and adjust plenty long for me.
I started out on the tightest hook, so the hooks are going to have to move. I'm pleased that it's so tight, because as I move into usually-28 territory, all my Fauves are starting to be too loose even on the tightest set. The top edge along the wings also rests flush against my underarm, which means that either the elastic is tight enough or the band is conically-cut enough for my silly ribcage.
Now I definitely need the other 3 colorways, if I can find them. Hooray!
