Fauve, so superior materials, quality and construction. The colorway is like a watercolor in shades of peach, purple, hot pinks and orange; all translucently running into each other on a background of palest dawn pink. Its gorgeous, and I hate pink. It is also slightly shiny,almost iridescent. Being a Fauve (details!) the pattern continues on the mesh band all the way around The lining of the lightly padded 3 part half cup is pale pink; the trim and straps are also. A scalloped layer of non stretchy orchid-embroidered pale pink net lies flat along the top of the cups and a narrower matching orchid lace runs along ... the front bottom band, up the straps halfway, and adorns the clasp. The seams and lace lie flat under tight knits, it comes up in a little scallop above the cups. Double bows of satin orchid and micro-narrow pale pink ribbon in all the usual places; the gore bow includes crystal drops (!!). The band is very stretchy. The velvety soft straps are not. The wires are very narrow and covered in softness, as is the clasp. The wings and gore are quite low, no poking and great for my close set girls. Overall shape is high, round and hello ladies in your face, that nice apples look. I think it is not quite as deep at the wire as some of my other Fauve half cups,though. In spite of the measurements saying this should fit perfectly, it is slightly too small on my larger boob and cuts in at the top. I don't feel exactly enclosed/supported either, but I do feel precious and tres femme! Idk. Don't care,I feel like a French candy shop window display in this beauty! I am however thinking of buying the last remaining one in a G cup just because...also buying a balcony in the same colorway...which is really confusing to me, because my entire life I have deplored pinky girly! LOL - I read somewhere that menopause brings a new appreciation for hot colors like red, pink, orange, so maybe!!
