this bra nearly works. It's very pretty, and the material is pretty comfortable, aside from itchy lace at the top of the cup. The bird print goes all the way around, and there are a ton of cute details like lace up the front seam, and bows on the straps and gore. There's even a little trim along the bottom and top of the band. The fit is where things get messy.
The band on this feels good on the tightest hook, but i think sizing down to a 32 would mean id need to wear en extender while it broke in so it didn't distort the wires. For ... this reason i marked the band too large in fit- it technically doesn't feel like its too small, but since i already have it on the tightest hook and the material is very stretchy, i know it'd be a matter of days before it was too loose.
Additionally, it wants to roll up which is SUPER frustrating. I think its because the material is thin and stretchy like a VS band, and its one of those "mesh with a piece of elastic on top and bottom" style bands. I cant stand this feeling, augh!
The cups are a bit too small. when im fully scooped into the cups, the tighter lace section cuts me off and i get a little quadboob, They seem to close off very wuickly, which is a problem for me in other styles like this. 34DD - Freya » Patsy Padded Half Cup Bra (1223) did the same to me, although that was definitely too small in the cups looking back. The shape i get from this is a little torpedo-y, probably because it's too small. I think I'd get a good shape in a proper size.
Under wire width seems good in this, i feel no cutting in or empty space. My breast tissue is trying to bulge a little over the sides of the underwire, but i think if i got a larger size that actually fit, this wouldn't happen. I feel like its because the cup is already tight and the tissue has nowhere else to go.
I probably wont try another size in this due to the band style, but i might give it a go if i see one in person instead of playing the order online game.
