Review by assigned male at birth.
This is the second bra I've ever purchased.
I down size from my first bra(48D) because that is too big for me, and Bratabase suggests me 46A.
I buy 46B because I guess my breasts are bigger than 46A and there's only few products in 46A, And I want to try plunge bra because the first bra(which is full cup bra)'s gore is too long and it pushes sternum. I think plunge bras have lower gore, so it won't push. There's plunge bra in 46B made by Figleaves, so I choose 46B instead of 46A.
This model is molded, which is thicker in bottom. And there's ... no side bone and 1-layer wing. Underwire is quite hard.
First, this bra's size is strange. Figleaves's web site says UK size 46B is US size 46B(which is common for bra size conversion), but on the label, UK 46B is US 46C. WHAT?? And it says its EU size is 105C, so I have no clue what size it is accurately, but I guess it's more like 46C for standard sizing.
Anyway, it is too big for me. My breasts only fill for half ~ 5/8 of cups. It's 3/4 cup bra, so even considering its size as 46C, it's way bigger than I expected.
Besides of that, underwire digs into my outer side of breasts for first few minutes, maybe it's because this bra isn't made for male at birth. after few minutes with proper scooping and swooping, it feels not bad and I guess it's nice for body shaping.
Gore doesn't push sternum at all, proves my prediction was right. Band size is good either. When I wore first bra(48D) before, it fits but it will be with bit tighter, and this fits nicely tight.
Design of this bra is good. Big leaf pattern race is on the top of cup, ribbon and jewel-shaped plastic on the top of gore, and straps are geared with cups by metal(brass, I think) clip. Quality is slightly poorer than first bra, but it's OK.
