First off-this bra is one of my bras from before I knew my approximate correct bra size. When I first got it, I thought it was tight in the band, but now I realize-it's just because the cups are too small! I can wear it easily on the tightest hooks, and can still pull it away from my body enough to fit two or three fists in there. It also rides up on the tightest hook. After measuring the band, I instantly knew why-unstretched, it measures 26 inches! My BTT is 26.5, and relaxed is 27, so of course it's too big. However, I added it here for ... science/measurement purposes to help others, and it will be listed so that it can go to a good home.
Gorgeous color-a true red that I hope to find in a correctly fitting bra someday! Red can be tricky with my coloring, but this one is really pretty.
Seems very well made, I think it would last a long time for the right person.
Medium Narrow wires, though for me I need a touch narrower, on a correctly fitting bra.
I quadboob, but this is understandable, since my actual size is 26HH or J, and I usually wear 28H or HH bras. (The cup volume of this bra, if my math is correct, is closer to that of a 28FF or G, since it goes 32E-30F-28FF and the cups seem to run a bit large, since they are about the same depth as another 32 band bra I am listing in a F cup(which also runs a tad large). Because the band is so loose, I couldn't get a picture where the full extent of overspill is visible-every time I stepped back to wait for the timer, my breast ended up moving around and the quadding at top became less visible.Probably why I thought these sizes fit for so long....)
Straps don't adjust short enough for my narrow shoulders and higher set chest. (My root starts pretty high up)
Band runs large, which could also be a pro depending on your measurements.
Overall, a lovely bra, and I hope it can go to someone who will enjoy it!
