First day of wearing: The support is really poor, but I feel SO DAMN SEXY wearing it! I will remove the bows from the straps and will sew just little pieces of black ribbon instead to cover seams. Masculine way of sexy... I look at my boobs in this bra and I think: Oh gosh, I am such a hot dude ;D Sounds funny, but I feel just great this way. Now I need some fitting sexy pants or boxer briefs and I can go and undress in a front of a girl I like https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_razz.gif" alt=":p" /> ...I feel it for the first time, nice thing. I feel that my boobs make me a hot dude xD I have to find more bras like this one! I want to share so badly, I hope you don't mind https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
Sorry for overuse the word 'feel', I can't help it. My English is a way too bad to replace it with different ones. Read more 68 more words
The band is a bit snug on the largest hook as this bra has little to no stretch. It feels very sturdy. The cups aren't too big on me, and they give me a rounded shape (I seem to be in the minority). The stitching on the cups is visible through thin, light colored tops. It is a bit minimizing, so I wear it with my snug tops if I need help to fit into them comfortably - the tight band gives me more definition.
ETA 1/23/14: An update, more than a year(? I don't really remember when I got it) on. I cycle these bras through with ...my others, but generally only wear them when I have 2 layers (a long sleeve under a tshirt) or a tight tee with a design on the chest. Why? These are my lowest band bras and as such give me the best definition, so they help my tight tshirts fit better and I look bustier to top it off (a plus at my size, I think). My design tees tend to be a bit thicker than plain ones and the print on the front (or two layers) disguises the lines on the cups so they don't show through. These have worn pretty well, the band has stretched enough that it's quite comfortable but I haven't had any riding up, regardless, I've just moved to the middle hook on my older white bra (not yet on my 6 months younger black version). However, the fabric of the sides and cups has become discolored in the white version, which is kind of disappointing. I don't wear it for consecutive days and I swear I shower every day, so I don't know what it is. Besides sad. The underwires are still in good shape and these have actually become my most comfortable bras. That's good, because they certainly aren't lookers on their own. Read more 210 more words
Simply the wrong shape for me. Cups are too high for me, I don't have breast tissue that high up. No gaping at the top though, just minor empty space in the cup. Straps fairly wide, gore very low and is trying to stab me, only one hook in the back which might be an issue for larger busted ladies - doesn't bother me as such. Band is too wide on me even in the tightest hook, I'm a 26 band. Band is not very stretchy. Nice lightly padded bra for every day, bottom part of the cup is slightly textured, bows on the gore and straps are very cute, band has little cut-outs in the back. Seams are definitely visible though light tops.
I have very soft, malleable, liquidy, not very full boobs, that seem to be more on the full on top side. I wear a 30FF in Freya padded Half Cups (Ivy, Piper, JFI Longline, Lauren Halfcup) with a teeny bit of gapping, and I pop out of a 30F Deco Halfcup. All if these give me a nice, rounded, slightly upward-pointing and slightly projected, full look.
I got this bra by accident during a figleaves order and figured it wasn't worth the money to return it. I had ordered a Lauren padded Half Cup in white, in 30FF, and realized I would do better with a 30F and ...changed it with customer service before it was shipped. Unfortunately, they misunderstood, and I got a Plunge instead, which I already knew would not work for my boobs.
And I was right. To begin, my boobs aren't 'tall' enough to fill out the upper parts of the cups properly. Second, my FOT boobs give the cut an unattractive, downward pointing, tiny looking coneboob. The underwires are a good inch too wide for my ridiculously narrow boobs too. My boobs, being so light and liquidy, aren't heavy enough or full on bottom enough to give the bra the shape it could give someone else. The underwires are not the right shape, being too 'U' shaped at the bottom for me to fill out.
TLDR; my boobs are the problem. Any bra with the 1 vertical seam never works for me. Read more 138 more words
This is a VERY plunging bra that still manages to provide very firm support and great cleavage. The only downside is all of the seams are very visible not only through T-shirts but also thinner knits. As this is most of my wardrobe I returned the bra despite it's fantastic fit. I'll only buy one if I can find nothing else that works (I don't usually buy lace for the same reasons).
I had another of these bras under a different style # that I barely ever wore due to the seam showing reason despite the great cleavage it provided.
Also of note. The cups ...are firm fabric with no give which can be less comfortable than moulded cups. Also the back is very narrow, just strips of elastic going to one hook. This is good if you need it to hide under something, and I never found it less than comfortable, but I carry very little fat in my back even when I was obese. Someone with more might find it to produce a visible line or to be uncomfortable.
I didn't wash the one I had much due to wearing it very little, but looking at both that one and this one it doesn't seem like they would hold up to washing as well as others, they just seems a little cheap.
This bra has a subtle stripe to the fabric on the lower cups that makes it more attractive than a basic bra. If it wasn't for the seams showing through clothes I'd buy it in a heartbeat. Read more 161 more words
Alas, a plunge bra that works for my wide-rooted, shallow boobs... but it's not aesthetically pleasing to me.
Pros: The wires are wide enough for me. I don't have quadboobing or gapping (unless I really hunch my shoulders forward. I like that has some padding, but not too much.
Cons: Not a fan of the material. There is some strangely textured striped fabric going on. The cottony knit stripes are an odd contrast against the smooth nylon/polyester fabric. The seams do show up a bit under clothing. One hook per column. Not a huge deal for me, but I could see it being an issue for people with larger boobs.
The shape of this bra on, literally disgusts me. It makes my boobs look pointy, even more so than they ever could be on their own. TERRIBLE SHAPE. It claims to be padded, and is not, at all; there's more of what I would call a thick lining. The description boasts great cleavage and it supplies little. Would suggest getting a cup size or two smaller, if I were actually interested in trying to make this bra work (as maybe an ill fitting cup would make it look less terrible). In coming quickly down the stairs, I had to support my breasts manually with my hands to be comfortable. If the straps were tightened much tighter than they need to be for fit, this might be remedied...but again, no one wants to have to do that.
This bra is too small for me and I returned it. The band and cup were too small, causing the wires around the gore to dig into my breast tissue and a little bit of quadboob up top. I tried using an extender, but it caused the straps to be so far apart that they fell off my shoulders.
