*Gorgeous* bra. Wanted it to work but it's the first Gossard I've ever tried. Wire seems mostly a good shape, it comes up underneath my underarm but that's ok with me. The band is well fitting brand new but it is stretchy so it's no good to me as a strapless. I could only consider wearing this as a regular bra or cross-back. This is too bad. I hoped the "long line" would provide more support as there is more material and there's a 5 hooks closure. Also, the extra material and wide under-band just roll up and don't hold the effect unless you are standing still. The ...G cup is a bit too small for my bigger side and Gossard really only go up to G and I can fit a finger between the cups so the gore doesn't sit flat. I still wish to try other cup styles in the future to see if they make something which will fit me better. Shape is pointy (see photos) but I really like the lightly padded style: It really looks like a "retro" bra! If this had fit, it would be a keeper for some special occasions.

The cups are a bit pointy. More like the usual cup-form in the 50's. I think this looks very cute. I wanted to have something different from the usual shapes so i can switch. But now its too small. I didnt get many opportunities to wear it, but if possible i'd buy it in my new size any time again
This bra is very beautiful, I wanted it to work but unfortunately its just not right for me. This fit totally differently than the Ooh La La corselette which did fit me well and I am keeping. The center gore is kind of wide and doesn't tack, though to be honest I don't really mind that, I probably would have kept it if that was the only problem, as I tend to find gores that do tack always dig in. The real issues with it is that it gives me a really odd pointy shape and also cuts into the tops of my boobs a little. The wires ...are also too wide, I get wrinkling on the bottoms of the cups. I think this bra is just too wide and shallow for me. If I try to hold the wire in place so that it lines up correctly with the edge of my breast tissue it actually fits much better, but there is no way to force it to keep that position. This is labelled as a 30FF but the band is super tight, it feels like a tight 28 rather than a 30. might even be a decent option for girls looking for 26 bands due to the fact that it runs snug and is a long line. it stays up well without the removable straps. I could see this being a great bra to wear on your wedding, it will definitely support you as a strapless and is a beautiful cream white lace. I want to be able to keep this so bad! but unfortunately the fit issues are too great. Read more 167 more words
A pretty bra with nice shape and uplift, and good fit. Unfortunately, it's very hard to fasten , the strap placement is really wide, and the gore & wires weren't very comfortable. The band's also a tad to big on me, but it's a solid 28", so you might want to upsize if you're a genuine 30. In the end I couldn't keep it because I didn't see myself wearing it.
Please read my full review for more info! - COMING SOON!
Beautiful bra, but sadly too small for me and SO uncomfortable, even after a few wears. This bra digs in EVERYWHERE! The band is snug for a 30 which was great for me, but the cups were too small (but I probably just needed the size up). Couldn't decide whether I liked the shape it gave me or not, it was quite old fashioned 'pin up' style, a bit pointy if you know what I mean. The longline strap looked gorgeous but felt as though it was dragging the bra down a bit- not what you want in a strapless.
