    Hasn't set fit

    Astounded to find a padded half-cup working on me, but it does, amazingly well, though the shape it creates is definitely closer to the body than I expect to see. Tons and tons of lift, authoritarian construction and a VERY firm band appear to be the key. It has more depth in the bottom than most padded halfcups and thus accommodates my projection, but without actually giving a projected look. I have a lot of fullness on top and a tall root, with a slight slope above up to collarbone as well as the flagrant FoT, so I'm beyond delighted to find a workable half-cup. It gives a ... ... well, a less projectile than I expect yet absolutely perfect cakes-on-a-plate shape. It does not budge over 18 hours' wear, literally not an iota of downward wire crawl, wire mark perfectly placed right up in the inframammary fold, hallelujah. It's so comfortable there is literally zero to notice about it being on -- even late that night -- other than how awesome-looking one is and how little one's back hurts.

    The same size as in my far duller, utility Fantasie side support bra, Susanna, worked perfectly here. The wire width seems very similar i.e. medium or maybe a tidge on the narrow side, and comes up plenty high enough at the sides -- very nice wire shape to find in a half-cup. (I did not have any gore issues. I'm wide-set as hell and the gore's a bit narrow for me, but I'm also splayed and firm so central support is wasted on me anyhow, it's all about uplift and push-in.)

    (Note: Bratabase won't let me enter that it fits me without doing the whole measurement rigmarole. It absolutely does fit. I'll fix this eventually.)

    If you are in my size range, which is at or near the top of Fauve's cup limit, and you're browsing for a padded halfcup because you're wide and shallow and have been told that that cut's a good bet, and you're just wondering hmm, what about Fauve, then I suggest another choice may suit you better. (I've just reviewed the Dali, for instance. It seems more along the usual shallower/wider lines.) The Evangeline seems to be that rare and precious foothold in this category for us comparatively deep, projecting, narrow, firm full-on-tops.

    I bought this bra because I found it on sale for cheap, I like half-cups, and I know Fauve and Masquerade bras are comfy.

    It doesn't fit me properly in the least: it's too shallow and small for me in this cup volume, the gore doesn't tack, and the band is very slightly too stretchy for me, even on the tightest setting, because I wear a 30 band.

    But it sure is pretty!

    EDIT: Another unfortunate casualty of tissue migration... Still a gorgeous bra, though.

    This is a new favorite! Truth be told, the band is a bit big, and I'll probably have to alter it down before too long, but it is a gorgeous bra, and I love the rounded shape. It's also super comfortable, with nice narrow wires.

    The cups in this bra have empty space along the top edges, and the gore doesn't lay flat against my chest. It's not uncomfortable to me, but I'm still new to wearing bras that fit, so anything is better than what I was wearing.
