This is the second of 6 reviews I will do on a Polish bra haul! My New Years resolution was to not let hesitation or fear stop me from doing things, and buying bras is a weak spot for me. I'm constantly afraid of losing money, which means I never try new things and usually just buy bras listed, or buy deeply discounted off of Brastop. I've wanted to really try Polish bras for YEARS, and what happiness did worry and hesitation bring me??? None!! SO, despite a few mild spouts of panic, and lots of process of elimination, I took a risk and ordered... SIX bras ... at once!!! I ordered from OtherEden, and got them for I feel like a steal. I spend about 145 USD, so like $24 a bra, PLUS free shipping, AND the promise of easy US returns if needed. So... I took the plunge!! And luckily was happily rewarded. Now I need to hurry and see if I can get matching panties!! Anyway... On to the bra review!
Measures as wide, and does sit a bit wide on me, leaving some empty space on the side. Aren't sprung due to loose band. And despite that, THE most painful wires at the gore! What's with these tall gores and hard wires??! But, they're less of that dramatic deep U shape, which fits my root shape better.
Round, but shallow. The fabric is a bit stretchy, so cups are techinically a bit too big for me. I just barely fill it, but hard to tell and still very wearable. Due to the extra seam on the sides, it works as a tight side panel which means I don't slip to the sides of the cups after swooping and scooping. Extremely open on top.
Immediate seems pretty good for a balconnette, and there's definitely some at the center. Were the wires narrower, I could see this pushing me front and center more.
Too big. Needs altering. Doesn't seem to spring firm underwires much.
So damned wide!! Attacking my armpits. Due to lace and strap trim, couldn't move closer in. With shortening the band, they'll be closer together in the back at least. Fully adjustable excluding front trim, and I would consider short. I'm petite from neck to waist, and need to start them nearly fully loosened.
Wow!! What stunning embroidery! The photos made it look like RED on black, but actually, it's fuchsia! A bit disappointed as I've wanted a red and black sheer lace bra forever, but it looks SO pretty in person so I can't be mad. Looks good on too.
Gore is MURDER. Would need to replace with softer and possibly shorter wires. I could see straps being irritating to armpit after a while. Otherwise, fabrics are extremely soft.
I seem to be charmes by fabrics this time around, haha... Despite the painful gore, I think it's worth keeping. I know how to alter bras so hopefully that will happen soon!! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" />
