I have quite soft breast tissue on a wide root, but with a decent amount of upper fullness. This bra was cut for a shape very different than mine, so when my breasts filled the cups and conformed to their shape it ended up looking quite strange. This bra was also slightly too small for me which didn't help matters.
I think that someone with narrower breasts than me (in need of narrower wires and with more of a "tall" shape to their breast) would find this bra quite flattering. It is cut loose enough in the top that someone with moderate upper fullness could fill it out, but ...tight enough that someone with a somewhat full on bottom shape (shallower above the apex) could do well in it as well.
The gore is very, very slim. The underwire channels actually touch, so the gore is a small triangle between where they meet and the bottom of the band. Moreover, the straps are fully adjustable which made it awesome for shorty me with the high chest.
All around it's a quite pretty bra well suited to those with a narrow chest, just not the right size or - more significantly - the right shape for my bust. Read more 97 more words
I really love this bra. It is so cute and feminine. I love the lace and the detail on it. The bra is very comfortable and I have no problems with the center gore at all. I have the white bra thats in the picture. I bought this bra from another user.
This is the only bra I own that fits me perfectly. It's light, pretty, and supportive! I wish the center gore was a little bit taller below the underwires, but even that isn't really a complaint, this bra fits me like it was custom made!
This is one of the most beautiful bras I've owned. It's delicate, feminine and wholly sexy - this is the kind of thing my Parisian alter ego would wear as she looks out onto the Seine from the open window of her luxury apartment on the left bank. I'll be honest - it's not a very practical bra in that there's not a ton of support, since it's all a thin, veilly see-through material. But these bras composed my first brastop purchase, before I knew such terms as "shallow breasts" and "wide root." Because of that, the bra is entirely wrong for my shape. I've also gained a cup size since then, after having previously been incorrectly sized as a 30DD instead of a 30E. I also found the band to be rather tight, but this could easily be attributed to wearing the wrong cup size. I also find that it fits rather small in the cups, but again, 30DD is not my correct size so I cannot attest to the fit with any certainty.
There's just something strange with this bra for me. I tried it in 28e and 28f and had the same problem with both. The thicker bottom fabric is much more stiff than the flimsy lace. The result is that the lace is almost baggy on me and the bottom cup too tight.. It was the same in both sizes and the 28e was slightly too small.. I just think this style doesn't suit me. It is a very pretty bra though. One other warning is that it's very sheer so not great for wearing under a light coloured top!
It seemed like a good fit at first. But even with the straps tightened beyond comfortable, the shape is a bit droopy and I get an uncomfortable bounce with the slightest bump in the road. After a few hours, the wires start pinching my chest. If I tighten the straps to a max, the support is obviously better but my shoulders aren't happy. The shape also gets weird. I've only worn it a couple of times and plan on selling it.
I really, really like this bra. It's not much to look at - quite plain and simple - but it's incredibly comfy and the fit is really good for me. I think Flirtelle / Curvy Kate's cup shape on this style of bra is always going to be really good on me, and I'm slowly collecting as many as I can.
There's no digging in on the sternum or straps, the band fits well and it seems to have survived a good few wears and washes without stretching out too much. The only con is the fact it's a bit boring, but for an everyday bra that'll work under most clothes and stay in place all day, it's a good one!
