Like virtually all of the 30F Fauve Padded Half Cup Bras I've tried, the Sabine fit great, was comfortable, and created massive cakes on a plate cleavage. My boyfriend didn't like this bra, so I returned it. He pretty much never likes black bras.
The center gore on this is too high, but it is still comfortable. For some reason, all bras cover a much greater portion of my torso than they are supposed to. It's probably because my frame is very petite, except for my broad shoulders and 30F chest. My boobs are extremely close set. Any gore higher than 1.5" will rest on breast tissue. Sometimes ...this causes discomfort or bruising. The Fauve Half Cup Bras are the least problematic in this regard, though their center gores are quite high. They have this in common with every single half cup bra center gore on earth.
I think the premium price Fauve bras command really comes through in the comfort of the materials and construction. They also look gorgeous, of course. However, it's easy to make a bra look cute or pretty or seductive or whatever. It's much harder to make it function--and I include comfort in that heading--well. Read more 91 more words
I bought this at Intimacy on sale about 6 months ago. I'm a 28/30 band, so this was obviously too big. Thankfully, they were able to easily take it in to a standard 28, and now it fits perfectly. It's a lovely bra, but the straps have a crinkle detail on both sides that ends up bothering me after a while-not to mention the marks they leave on my skin. I wear it still (wore it today actually), but I think it's going to have to make its way to my 'occasional lingerie' drawer -where the things that aren't quite right but I still love them because they're pretty-end up.
The band feels exceptionally tight but is also too big. I can still fit a whole hand between the band and my back. Even on the loosest settings though, this bra makes my back and shoulders ache. This bra just does not fit me.
