This is a beautiful bra, it fits and is comfortable, so I should love it, but I don't. It's because the single layer net cups are just not strong enough. My breasts aren't super-soft, but medium soft and pendulous. I need cups that are firmer on the bottom that give some lift. The only way I can get some shaping from this bra is to shorten the straps a lot, and even then the shape I get is only meh.
I would also like a firmer fabric on the back. The single layer stretchy satin bulges out between the top and bottom elastic. As MiskiDwie ...noted the floppiness of the back makes it hard to fasten. I'm afraid I'm going to put a finger right through it.
I haven't decided yet if I'll keep or return. It is very comfortable and I do love me a grey bra. I have a Fantasie Allegra on the way in purple. If I like it as much as I did when I wore 34FF I may order another in silver and then I'll return this. Read more 80 more words
My shape: Projected, narrow, short rooted, even/functionally full on bottom, soft tissue.
I'm a 30G currently, but sister sized up to a 70H (32FF UK) since I'd read that Gorteks bands runs small. Unfortunately I found this bra to run true to size in the band, and slightly small in the cups.
I agree with some other reviewers that this bra feels flimsy. The straps are extremely stretchy, the materials are thin, and in general I just prefer a sturdier bra.
The wires are too wide for me, and the top of the cup cuts in a little bit on my larger side. I don't think it's worth trying this in other sizes, and I'll be returning it.
I really love this bra! I got it in fuchsia and it has a vivid pink colour. It's an unlined lace bra with seams that do a good job of covering the nipples.
The cups are quite close together and I imagine someone with a bit more close-set boobs than me could wear this even better, it does work well enough for wide-set boobs, though. There are definitely not enough issues for me to consider this "not fitting". However, the cups hold everything in, there is no quadboob at all, and the bra makes a nice shape.
The straps are definitely short enough for me (I have a quite small frame) but they also adjust very long for taller people. The band could be tighter, but since this is a sister size, it's not the bra's fault. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":D" />
This one is a very sultry, classy bra. I like the mocha embroidery, it is sexy yet understated. The florals looks a bit like tattoos on skin and tgis might be a good nude bra for someone with a darker complexion. As in 65H - Gorteks » Cleo Soft Bra (B2) I need a tad less depth.
Update: Despite numerous washes and wearings, this bra continues to saw into the front of my armpits horribly, leaving my skin irritated. I also am not a fan of where this bra is shaping my breast apex, I feel like it points the ladies down too much. I find the Kinga Michelle is a much more comfortable alternative for this style of balconette that gives me a better shape.
This is the second bra I ordered as part of my first foray into Polish, and my oh my do I see why everyone raves about them. The fit of both is amazing compared to anything else I've tried, and ...I'm never going back! About this bra: The fabric is very feminine in design. The flowers are embroidered onto the net, so it won't rub off. The texture doesn't show through a T-shirt. I do find it a bit scratchy, but hope it softens with more washes. I do not feel it is too flimsy, in fact I feel very supported in this bra. The band is firm, I would pay careful attention to size charts to choose your fit. There is side boning, which previous experiences with Wacoal's Retro Chics had me very nervous about. However, I barely notice it after hours of wear. It is flexible and also short enough to shift in the channel, preventing it from poking my fluff rolls. The shape is nice and somewhat natural. I get great lift and forward projection, and it has a nice slimming affect to the figure. Lots of projection, including at the wire. I like that the top edge accommodates my uneven breasts so well the size difference is not obvious. The bigger side almost quads at the top, giving a roundness, but remains contained. The wires are the stiffest I've encountered so far, U-shaped and somewhat narrow. They tuck into my IMF pretty well, better than most bras. The more bras I check, the more convinced I am omega-shaped, as no bra so far has been able to tuck into my IMF towards the center. I had to bend the gore out, it was poking painfully but thankfully is now quite comfortable. The gore is nice and narrow, tacks firmly. I also get a lot of pinching and poking in the underarm, I am testing how bending out the wires just at the top of the side helps. Overall, I have found that I've had to do a ton of bending and shaping of these wires to get a comfy fit, as they are so stiff they do not flex to accommodate my body at all while worn. The straps are wide and soft, but the edge is textured, so it is not easy to adjust the sliders. It also contributes to some of the scratchiness I'm feeling. They also could stand to be a little closer-set in the front, they rub along the front of my armpits. If it gets too annoying, I may try altering it. They don't fall off my shoulders, though. Verdict: I really like this bra, I think after a few washings it will become more comfortable. I am a Polish convert for sure! Read more 418 more words
This bra is gorgeous but it did not work for me, sadly. The construction is nice and feels of good quality. I found that the band ran very small and the cups did not fit. The wire width seems like it would have worked well for my pendulous bottom full shape. Unfortunately, the store I ordered from did not have any larger sizes so I had to return.
