    The Arabella was one of my first bras in my real size and so far it's the one that fits me the best. It says that it doesn't fit because the band does run large and it's very stretchy, but the rest of the bra fits very well. It's like it was made for my shape (narrow, FoB, a lot of projection, wide set). I did find the wires uncomfortable so I bent them away from my body both in the sides and in the gore. Once I fixed this and altered the band (made it shorter, but the pics are before alteration) , it fit great.
    The ... shape is natural: not completely round but not pointy either. It wrinkles in my smaller side and it quadboobs the tiiiiiniest bit on my right, but it's almost unnoticeable and even less so with clothes on. This tends to happen in all my bras though: I have about one cup size difference between my boobs, so I just adjust the straps and move on =)
    The design is gorgeous: I wish it was easier to find more colors. The cups come up high, but maybe I'm just not used to balconies and I tend to like very low cut tops. Good support, even when I prefer to go braless half of the time anyway.

    First, I'm even/FOT. This bra cuts in a bit at the top of the cup. I've since shortened the band since I was able to easily fit it on the tightest hook (and it was riding up like a shame on the loosest) but this just brings more attention to how it does not fit me well. I can undo this alteration easily, btw.

    Received this second hand...the wires are bent in a way that I'm not sure how to make them feel normal. It also has a defect in the threading (didn't find this too bothersome, but some may). Sexy but not the most comfortable bra, IMHO! Better for a different shape.

    While the bra is really pretty and I've tried really hard to love it, I simply can't. The wires are very short, and have 2.5cm of space in the channel under the armpit. Not only that but it gives me a shape that I'm not keen on- I don't mind pointy, but it makes the top of my breast flat, and then rounded at the bottom. Further, the mesh material that Arabella is constructed with simply doesn't work for me. It is itchy and hurts at times when I'm cold.

    It was the first Arabella bra I bought, and I went for my chart size, 32E. In some aspects it is ok for my measurements, but I need wider wires and Arabellas have narrow underwires. The outer ends of underwires end on breast tissue and they are also too low, so it doesn't look good and doesn't feel quite comfortable. It's not obvious at first, but after a while I can feel the wires digging into my body. I later tried different sizes and found out that 30FF is much better for me, because the wires are wider. I decided to keep this bra, because it's wearable, though ... not perfect and I wouldn't wear it for a long day of work etc., but it's ok for some uses.
    I guess the chart size is perfect for people with narrow roots of breasts and women who need wider wires should try a different size, like me. I tried on Lyla bra in the same size and it's exactly the same in size and fit.

    Look:
    It's beautiful. I adore Arabellas and this is one of best colours. It's pale shell pink combined with pale teal details. On paler skin tones it looks almost invisible in some light and the teal details look like glued on. I guess on darker tones the pale pink gives a nice contrast. It doesn't work like an ordinary nude bra, because it's too sheer. If your nipples are positioned right under where the seams meet, they will be less visible, but still not enough to be worn under translucent clothes. Maybe it would work for women with nipple colour similar to skin shade. I also have an Arabella in Cassis and it's better in disguising nipples, due to darker colour.

    Comfort and hold:
    It's very comfortable and great for summer. This size isn't 100% comfortable for me, but 30FF is, so I consider this model to be perfectly comfortable. It provides great support and hold, though it creates rather natural shape. With narrower wires it gives me more protruding shape, with wider ones it's more natural.

    I'm keeping this bra, because it's so pretty and I can actually wear it, even though it's not perfect, but I have another one I bought before I realised I need 30FF. So I would like to exchange one Arabella 32E in Oyster for another Arabella in 30FF.
