One of the most comfortable bra I ever worn. The material of bra is very soft, it does not scratch. The top of the cup is elastic so it will fit your boob perfectly and won't make quadboob. Very comfortable and soft straps. The wires are firm.
It's a shame That there is a tight, uncomfortable piece of elastic on the side of the bra between the strap and underwire which cuts into the side of your breast. I could just cry since the rest of this bra is so comfortable. It is an all cotton bra with nice narrow, short wires. I have tried to stretch the elastic on the sides to no avail. I am actually thinking of cutting it, but I have done this to bras before and then the hand stitching cause irritation.
Backstory: I have another Gorgeous by Debenhams bra in 30E. It almost fits me although my usual size is 28G. I don't have noticeable quadboob in it and no noticeable side spillage either. So I was curious how a 30FF would fit me if 30E is not that bad. Boob type: Firm, FoT.
So I got this bra in 30FF. And what you know, it fits perfectly. The wire is narrow, which is what I need, and it seems sturdy as well. The cup doesn't cut in on top of my boobs, although there's a ribbon on top of the cup. That usually causes problem for me, but ...not this one.
The band is really firm and tight, so even though it says 30, it is actually 28.5 (If I pull it to 29", the wires start to distort a little). I think Gorgeous bras run tight in the band? My 30E also doesn't stretch out to be 30", more like 29". On my 27" underbust, it is still snug while being comfortable. These days I'm leaning more and more towards 30-bands instead of my usual 28", simply because I feel it still gives me support while not compromising comfort.
As for the bra design itself, oh it's so cute! There's ruffles running along the band. I usually hate ruffles, but this is small and cute enough to add to the aesthetic of the bra. The flower embroidery on top of the cup is really bright pink, so it gives a nice contrast between the white and the pink. There's ribbon running along on top of the cup in mint green and white, plaid pattern. The ribbon on the centre gore is also the plaid pattern, with a pink ribbon on the loop. The straps are partly adjustable, but it doesn't cause problems on me. Others might be put off by this fact.
All in all, I'm really loving this bra, and I intend to find more Gorgeous by Debenhams bras to add to my arsenal! Read more 225 more words
This bra has a 4-section cup, i.e. with side panels for added lift which also help to bring the breast tissue forward and center it - this was the main reason I bought it. The fabric of the cups is not stretchy at all, which is why the top lace section cuts into my breasts giving me a bit of a quadraboob effect (which is a shame because I love everything else about this bra). Straps are fully adjustable and nice and wide (1 inch). The band is made of mesh stretchy fabric but seems firm enough.
This is the first time I took on a bra and was able to say without any doubt "this fits me". The underwire shape is exactly made for me, the cup is shaped almost as I am... On top of it, it looks really beautiful. Only little downside in the fit is that there is a band of fabric running on the top of the cup that cuts into my breast a bit - but it is a minor and easily removable problem. It dosen't seem to serve any other cause than avoiding wrinkles in women less full on top so I can put it away.
The bra gives a very pleasant rounded shape and puts the girls exactly where they should be, but they have a little more freedom of movement than I'm used to. But this actully adds to the comfort for me somehow - they're not as pressed as with those more fixed bras.
I did notice a few threads that haven't been finished very neatly, but I'm really happy with this bra
This bra fit while I had more milk, but wasn't very comfortable. The way it's cut makes the material rub against my arm and is quite sore by the end of the day. The band is a tighter one, which for me is a good thing since I have small ribcage. Definitely not for a true 30 band size. While the band fits, the center gore doesn't lay flat against me. Tons of room in these cups now days too. The straps are way to far apart for my liking. That's actually probably part of the problem why I get the painful rubbing under my arm after a full day's wear.
The cut is narrower than my regular brand (Fantasie) and seems good, but there is too much fabric on the sides--possibly because this is called a full cup and not a balcony. I did try their balconies and would have called them half-cups. The cups are too tall for me but just a little. The front (clothes) looks like the cup wrinkles but it's because the seam is too bulky and I think the lace material is not the highest quality. Overall, I am not unhappy but I'm not going to say this bra is wonderful either!
Update Apr 2016: been wearing this bra because I have it, but the cups and wings are much too high and rub a lot. I have been shrinking some too so the straps slip.
The under wiring sits quite lower than necessary. Its not tight but to give you an idea i have about an inch and a half gap of extra bra space under my breasts where my bra should end. I suppose the attempt is to fit like a balconette bra. But this feature does not affect the cup size. Also the dots stand out and likely to show through a plain blouse. The bra is quite thin and contains no padding whatsoever. The name given to this bra from the site was red and cream polka dot. I will say the sizing of these bras is inconsistent in regards to the band measurements. The cups fit the same on both so I'm guessing the red is a true 32FF mislabeled by the company.
