Profile is somewhat pointy and bumpy. Gore bands are too wide, compressing my breast tissue. Tightened straps as much as I could, causes discomfort around armpit and still did not support breast tissue enough.
This is a strange bra. My review is a bit unfair because I knew when I bought it that it would be too small, but it's such an oddly scaled bra. I was hoping to quickly pick up a wireless bra that was more or less wearable while I continued my bra search, but this won't work for me. I didn't mind sizing up in the band (since 36 is the smallest they make) because Glamorise is known for being somewhat tight in the band, and I picked the largest cup they seem to make. However, I kind of think that they just scaled up their smaller bras ...without considering how they would hold a larger bust, especially with a smaller band. I expect tight bands from Glamorise, but the band was actually too big for me, even done up on the last hooks. 36J is slightly too small a cup for me, but this is so incredibly small and weirdly fitting that I question whether it might comfortably fit someone who otherwise can wear a 36J in US sizing; I think the cups actually run small. The straps barely adjust at all; the top of the cup is more or less sitting just below the shoulder and does not adjust longer. The deceptively shallow cups squash boobs to the side in every direction, with much of the lower part of the cups taken up by an ineffectual, flimsy, and poorly connected sling that collapses on itself but somehow still manages to be in the way. I can't judge the bizarre shape they gave me since it was too small, but it was definitely odd. Normally I can just about get away with a too-small wireless bra, even though it's uncomfortable, but there is absolutely no give in this bra, so even for a wireless, it's very particular size-wise, and I'd keep that in mind when purchasing.
It might fit someone with very shallow and wide breasts, but I think this brand does better with the proportions of slightly smaller busts and might need to rethink how they handle smaller bands and larger cups. The proportions are off and there's just very little room in the cups. Read more 259 more words
