I bought this bra in a desperate quest to buy a flesh toned bra for my light brown skin. I didn't expect much from it, i just wanted something decently supportive to wear under my Rythmic Gymnastics leotard for competitions (it has a see through back and the sports is quite high impact).
This bra has exceeded my expectations.
The cups are cut and sew padding, which is thin and supple with a little stretch to it, making it easier to fit than rigid foam bras in my opinion. it shapes and supports the breast but it adapts to the shape and minimize asymmetry.
The cups give a medium amount ... of cleavage on my full on bottom breast but still feels quite secure, and the shape from the side is quite round.
the back is wide with three rows of hooks and eyes, it is stretchy but relatively firm and it hasn't stretched out in a few months of owning it. I wear 28 in brands like Freya and a 30 in the middle hook in Cleo these days. while this is a true 30 band I feel like it doesn't affect the support and doesn't cause me back pain like too big bang usually do for me.
regarding the bra's appearance, the colour is mocha with some warm undertones. It is pinker than my skin tone but PERFECTLY disapears under clothing for me, including white tops (and the aforementioned see-through beige powermesh). I feel like it would work as a neutral for quite a range of light brown women. the lace is also much prettier in person than in the stock photos, and the bra also looks better I feel.
Overall, it's very comfortable and supportive. And very affordable. It's not the prettiest bra but I bought one in another colour because I appreciate it so much.
