This bra is so close to perfect it makes me sad that it literally doesn't come in the right size for me. I am usually a 32FF/32H (UK/US).
This comes in my sister size of 34F/34G, but the band on that was clearly too big for me. It doesn't come in a 32FF/32H, but I figured I would give the smallest 32 band a try anyway. The smallest cup it comes in is a 32G/32I. I tried it on the outside chance it would work and it almost does.
The band feels good - snug enough to be supportive, but not too tight. The cups are a nice shape thanks ...the the seams/boning in them. My tissue fills the bottom decently (thanks to good projection at the wire), but I can't fill out the top. I think I truly need a cup size smaller. Unfortunately, it literally does not come in the size I need. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> I'm honestly considering adding some padding to make up the difference, lol.
If anyone knows of a similar bra that does come in 32FF/32H, please let me know. Read more 79 more words
I'm looking for a strapless bra to wear with a bridesmaid dress. Most strapless bras are made with molded cups that cater to a shallow shape so they don't work for me.
The Goddess Adelaide Strapless Bra is made with seamed cups. It has boning in each cup that helps give it a shape that works with my breast tissue instead of against it. Unfortunately, the size (34G US/34F UK) doesn't quite work for me. The band is too big and I only expect that to get worse as I break it in further. Ideally, I would try a 32H or even a 32G (US size). Unfortunately, it doesn't appear to come in either of those sizes.
Anyone know of something similar for me to try that comes in a 32H or 32G US size (32FF or 32F UK)?
My favourite day to day bra is the goddessmichelle, and a number of the qualities I love about Michelle are also evident in adelaide: a comfortable wire that isn't too firm, making it instant friends with my squish, pretty lace that isn't too frilly, and a supportive but comfortable band. Michelle was made specifically for small cup/large band, though, and I don't believe Adelaide was, so that's kind of where the comparison stops. Adelaide might be the first strapless bra I've seen that isn't molded or even lined; it's thin and soft, with a lace band across the top of each ...cup. Giving each cup shape are two pieces of boning that curve outward when worn, helping the bra maintain its shape when worn. It's an interesting bit of engineering, and not uncomfortable at all, since the boning is flexible, but the cups are VERY tall. For someone with taller roots that probably isn't a problem, but I have quite short roots, so the top of the cup gaped and wrinkled. The wrinkling wouldn't have happened were the cup molded, but the gaping would have happened regardless. There also isn't nearly enough immediate projection at the wire, which is one of the most important things I look for in a bra. The comfort of the cup, and the softness of the band and underwire compared to a brand like panache or even Freya, means I probably could have survived wearing it, but I'd like to find something better than "surviving".
