I have been buying this bra over and over since '01 or '02 and it has always been a perfect fit, even as my size changed. It manages to have just the right balance of firm, practical construction (3 hook band, high center gore) without sacrificing sexytime appeal (lots of top boob exposed, thin lace and fabric). I've never had a problem with the cups two layers of fabric puckering and I love that there is no boning in the wings. The straps are set a little wide for me, but that's a problem I have with most balconettes. It's not an everyday bra for me because I work 10-12 hour hospital shifts, but I imagine it would be if I worked a 9-5. I really love that the cups are set in such a way that my breasts are pushed to the front and out of the way of my arms.
I no longer have this bra (haven't had it for many years,) but I did add it to my bra log so I figured I'd add the data here.
The cup depth entered (14") was the max cup depth as measured by stretching over the knee. The flat cup depth (measured by hovering the cup between the knees and placing the tape measure in the cup without any resistance) was 11.5".
Gore is too high for me and digs in. I get wrinkles on the sides of the cups and on the top because I can't fill them out. straps are too wide and nearly at my armpits. The actual 1cm straps are overlaid with another layer of stiffer fabric with scalloped edges on the front.
Pretty! Deep purple with a light magenta underlay that peeks through a bit. Interesting narrow strap design with a padded felt backing for comfort.
Very narrow and projected bra. Although the tag says 32DDD (stupid US sizing, which bratabase didn't want to accept), I think this would fit a F or maybe even an FF. Band is soft and a bit on the stretchy side.
While the wire width is great for me, as a GG I just can't make the cup size work unfortunately.
I bought this bra in a search for an unmoulded, pretty bra that both fit (as opposed to some of the 34D bras I wear for want of anything else) and was more or less affordable. While I do like it, and wear it relatively frequently, I wish it was little more supportive. I think the cups may be somewhat too deep for me, and not tall enough, because I find myself wishing the cups pulled my breasts up and in more. I've also found that the lace layer puckers some, especially if you tend to readjust your shirt by pulling it down over the day. This is a great bra to wear with thicker fabrics.
I love this bra. It's the perfect shape for me - full coverage bras tend to slide down and leave empty space at the bottom of the cup but this one allows my boobs to be their natural shape without squishing them. The band is just tight enough to hurt a tiny bit on the first wear, and I measure 31.5" snug. I thought I had lost my cleavage forever now that I'm wearing properly fitted bras but it's back with a vengeance in this one.
