    Renee is a pretty bra with nice contrasting colors (thank you Mandapandarawks for sending it to me!). I love the tiny daisies. I got this in two sizes and I'm sticking with the larger. It's a shallow, half padded cup with stretch lace at the top. As my usual, I have difficulty filling out the top lace but the bottom of the cup stays in my IMF so I'm happy. The straps are wide and a little wide set, but they stay in place. The band is very firm.

    I really like the looks of this bra! It has tiny daisies in the pattern with wide white straps, black band, and red accent bows. Lovely! (Thank you Mandapandarawks for sending it to me!). The style is shallow and I think I'm caught between two cup sizes. While the smaller cup looks better, it doesn't want to stay in my IMF and the gore doesn't tack. However, the height is a good fit. Stretch lace is attached to the stiff padded cup. This seam shows through my shirts as a sharp ridge and I think it's because the gore is being pushed away from my sternum.

    My shape: full on bottom, soft tissue, narrow shoulders/roots.
    (Special thanks to MamaPagan for sending me this to try out!)
    Appearance: Padded, 3-part cup with white stretch lace. The pattern is dark gray with tiny white daisies. The back strap, however, is black, which is ok, but doesn't really match the rest of the bra. I think it would have been better if it was dark gray or white.
    Anyways, I cannot comment on the fit, as it's too large in the cup for me.

    Appearance: Padded 3 part cup with dark gray fabric and tiny white little daisies with red centers all over. The lace top of the cup is white and stretchy, and the fabric is silky soft. The back part of the band is black? which is weird because it totally doesn't match.
    I can't comment on the fit, as it's not my size, unfortunately.

    I am adding this bra for data/informational purposes only. This Bra is not owned by me at the time of addition to the database.

    The Renee Maxi is a semi soft bra with light foam lined bottom of cups and a very stretchy white lace on top. The pattern is a dark grey with little white daisies and red centers, and a black band in back. In comparison to the regular line Renee, which has the same cup pattern on the full band, the regular line Renee is prettier and more esthetically pleasing.

    Renee was one of the first Gaia bras I tried. I fell in love ... with the stretchy lace tops which were far more accommodating that most bras I’ve tried that have a stiff lace. This stretchy lace is great for asymmetry, as well as hormonal and weight fluctuations, plus softer breast tissue.

    The band measured 26.5” and stretched to a max of 33.75” with 3 hooks and 3 rows of eye loops.

    Cup Depth as measured by:
    1 Hovering the cup between the knees, then placing the tape measure into the cups without any resistance.
    This measurement is: 11”

    2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance.
    This measurement is: 13”

    I feel these two figures give you a general idea of the minimum and maximum depth that the cup can accommodate, just like the flat and stretched band measurements do with bands. Since Bratabase only has one cup field, I enter the larger of the two, as it’s this larger number that determines if a cup is going to fit me or not since I am on the max end of the cup scale, but do realize that some may need the lower number to determine fit for their needs, so I will always include both figures in the reviews for full disclosure.

    I tried the Renee Maxi in 70K and 70L, as well as the Renee regular line in 65J, 65K, and 70J.

    In comparison to the other Renee bras I tried, the Maxi cups run smaller than the regular line Renee, even though the cup sizes are larger. This seemed to be a general consistency with the Gaia Maxi line bras that I tried.
