    30E

    Fits

    I love this bra so much! It's so feminine and ballerina-esque. I love all of the rose gold details and cutouts in the band and gore. The band runs super tight (only stretches to 26 inches) which is perfect for me. The cups are nice and short. They could be a bit more immediately projected, but they do give nice lift. The gore is narrow and comfortable. Thanks erispe for swapping this one with me! :)

      OMG - this is amazing! I am so happy it fits so great. Yeah! Success! :) I kinda want to open that champagne I've been chilling for a week now. :)

      I'm so happy it works! I've heard it's a quite specific fit so I'm glad it works on me. And any day is a good day for champagne so do it girl :)

    30DD

    Didn't fit

    - Received in a giveaway and the previous user narrowed the gore by overlapping the wires which is amazing for my close-setness. Such a pretty bra. Subtle silver thread in the cups and rose gold hardware.

    - It definitely runs small in the band and feels more like a 26 which works for me.

    - For me this bra not a match in the cups. They want to sit a little too low (why is this? Is is something to do with construction or how I'm putting it on?) and the tops are not open enough for me. Or maybe the cups are also too small. I'm 26 underbust, 34 leaning bust, even or maybe FOT, tall, close, average/maybe narrow roots. I will pass this along in another giveaway.

      This is gorgeous! A fairy bra :-) :-)

      Are the gore wires off of your breasts near the gore base? It looks wide and center fullness may inhibit the wires sitting further up. Just a theory :-)

    • 2

      I'd say the cups are just too small for you. What a shame, it's such a pretty bra.

      Such a pretty bra! Too bad it didn't work. I agree Love4Pollinators about the gore width possibly being the problem.

      How did you find the projection? I've always wanted to try this bra but I wasn't sure if it would have enough immediate project for a FOB shape

    • Love4Pollinators i think i remember that the wires were off my breasts, yeah, but my roots meet (where one ends the next begins immediately), so all gores are too wide :(

      Impossibletofit i don't think it asks for serious immediate projection. i feel like if i were to size up, i would not meet the apex projection (but i often have trouble with that area in bras). i do think the cups run a little small overall.

    • Ahhh thanks for the info. It would probably be a shape mismatch for me as well then

    • 1

      I tried this bra in 3 different sizes and none fit. The 30DD definitely runs smaller than usual for Gossard. A shame about its fit as the fabric itself is wonderful.

    Didn't fit

    This bra runs reeeaally small in band and cup.
    It's like a 26F-28 E..I think! Haha cups are like what a 30DD/32D or 30D/32C would be on me.
    I can get the band on and it feels alright. If it were just the band I could deal with it. The cups constrict my boobs and make them into a downward 7.
    Getting ready to list this one. I still love it. If I could swap for a 32E or 30F I totally would.
    Would consider 32DD as long as cup depth is around 9"

    • yup, I've been trying to inform everybody in this community that most Gossard bands run tight. In fact, every single gossard I have runs tight except for the Superboost satin plunge. generally most gossard 30 bands stretch out to 29" or 29.5".

    • Saskia That's great that you're trying to get the word out! I took it out of the package and I was like..yep, that's not going to fit well. Haha
      Otherwise, in your experience do the cups tend to run small too, or do you think that's just influenced by such small bands?
      I'd like to order a new one of these.

    • I find that Gossard cups run true to size.

    • Saskia Ok. Thanks! :)

    • I think there's someone on /r/braswap who's looking for this size!
      A good idea is to check measurements and reviews here before buying from new brands. I have the Phoebe as well and I think the downward 7 might have something to do with the seam on top of the cup. I have it in a bigger size than I usually have in Gossard, and it's a bit loose in the cup on my smaller side, but it still cuts in on top and I don't even have that much tissue there.

    • I own and tried on about a dozen 30 band @Gossard bras, but I must say none were/are as tight in the band as the Phoebe. I just treat their 30 band as if it were a 28 - but this is more like a 26 band. The Superboost Lace collection isn't tight at all though - true 30.

    • erispe That's good to know! I was looking at some of their other bras, but was concerned about ordering the incorrect size.

    • erispe I don't think mine is any tighter than the other Gossards I own, it's a 30FF and fits like 28G, but definately not like a 26-band.

    • Staaldrigstill I found 30DD and 30E really tight - extender case, while the 30F was good bandwise. I suppose it doesn't come out consistently through all sizes. And it is a different feel with the narrow, one hook band, I find.

    • erispe that might be the case, as mine has 2 hooks

    • Staaldrigstill While I'm not crazy abut the one hook band, went to compare the 30 Gossard band lenghts and can conclude that the Phoebe 30E is on average 3 cm shorter than most others (DD&E cups) I own and a whole 7cm shorter than the 30DD Superboost Lace 7715 in beige. Given that yours in 30FF is of normal length and I found the 30F OK, I'd say that something went wrong with the sizing at the lower end of the size range. Now I need to get a one hook extender...

  4. *Feb 2016 Update* I tried this on again, with an extender, and the results are surprisingly much better. I think I also had the wires sitting too low before, so now that I hiked them up to right under my root, I fill the cups a little bit better. The wires are still too wide, and there's a little bit of space not filled in the cups, but I fixed this with cookies. I MIGHT still do some altering to the cups, but if I put push-up pads in the cups, I can use this bra with more loose-fitting clothing when I want my bust to stand out ... more. :P I kinda get a bullet boob look with the pads I'm using, but hey, it prevents my tummy from sticking out further than my breasts in sweaters and shirts that have no waist definition, haha! (I'll try to add more pictures when I feel like it.) The wires don't dig into my sides with an extender, so comfort is a plus too.


    First impression of this bra: Wow. WOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOW. This bra is STUNNING. It's light pink shade, rose gold colored hardware (when have you seen that color in bras before?!), and gold thread embroidery on the cups makes this one of the most gorgeous bras I have ever seen. My photos don't do it justice! Alas, we must face reality... This bra *technically* doesn't fit me.

    The cups are too deep. The only reason why it looks like it mostly fits is because the wires are actually more flexible than the back half of the band (??? huh? When has a bra ever been made with elastic stronger than the wires??) so the wires are stretched WAY beyond my roots. If I had rock-hard breasts, I could probably manage to fill the cups and stretch the band, but it would probably squash me and hurt. :P I have added a photo showing that the wires are approximately the same as the Ritzy bra, but the wires are MUCH more flexible. I held the bra up to my breast with the wire in a more realistic place around the root, and you can definitely see that the cup has a lot of wrinkles and empty fabric. Other signs the cups are too big: pointy appearance at apex, serious east-westing because my breasts can just do what they want inside the cups.

    This band is INSANELY inflexible. My max stretch of 29" was warping the wires. If you're a very low 28, or a 26, this is perfect because the band is really really firm. I honestly wish I knew how to stretch out the band already so that it has more flex. I wouldn't want to replace the wires with more stiff ones because the firmness of the band was already pulling the wires into my tissue at both the center front and sides. After only about 5 minutes of wear, I had really bright red divots in my skin on my sternum! I plan on trying this bra again tomorrow with an extender to see if the pain at my sternum and sides go away.

    To address the cup depth issue, luckily this bra doesn't have any thick foam going on, so I can hopefully just sew the seams in a little bit. I have a lot of sewing experience, and I hope to take some techniques from the tutorial "How to make a pointy bra rounder" by Bras I Hate & Love to make the cups more shallow. http://brasihate.blogspot.com/2012/08/how-to-make-pointy-bra-round.html

    I absolutely love the look of this bra, and would rather alter it and rip the tag right off than give it away. :) But I'll definitely pin it in place first and see if I waffle, but I reallyreallyreallyREALLYreallyreally want to keep this bra!

      Ahhhh this color is perfect on your skin too!! This really is beautiful, one of the prettiest bras I ever met. I can tell you it looks 1000x better on you than it did on me, so I so hope you can make it workable for you.

      The bra is very pretty! Sorry it wasn't the best fit, but it is really lovely.

    • Aww thank you :) I really hope I can come up with a solution!

      So my bra is settling down finally. :) Have you tried it with an extender?

    • erispe I did try it with an extender, which solved the stabbing into sternum issue, but the the band was definitely too loose and the straps dragged it up my back. :P But since the wires are so flexible, I am able to bend them to any shape so I'm experimenting to see how I to best bend them to take pressure off the largest pressure points. :)

      This is such a beautiful bra, but a tricky fit. I hope you can hack it to work.

    This is a gorgeous bra, really. And I'm sad it doesn't work for me. The cups are the shortest I've ever met, so fantastic for short roots. It fits my smaller side fine, but cuts in on my larger side just enough that it's not justifiable to keep it.

    Such a pretty bra with so much bad regarding fit at the same time. This would work on FOB shape and separated breasts.

    The band of this bra is way too small. The cups are rather low and cut in a little, even though it's not very visible, it bothers me. Maybe this is because the band is too tight, but taller cups would probably have worked better. The cups look like they are the right volume, but I may have an orange in a glass effect, as the bottom does show some wrinkles. The wires seem rather wide, not sure if this is because they are pulled outwards by the too short band. I like the fabric of this bra, the side panels, and the look, but it just doesn't work well with my breasts. I'm going to try this with an extender (which will be half the price of what I payed for this bra on Amazon). If it works, I might replace the wires, as the gore is poking me too much. As I got this so cheap I'll probably tinker with it a little before I give up.

    First I'd like to mention that this bra's rose gold metal parts have started staining the bra green after 9 months. Even though I didn't pay full price it's still disappointing.

    This bra technically fits but it's just not the best bra for me. The band is snug enough, the cups are deep enough, the gore tacks, etc... but the way it was constructed makes this bra useless at supporting heavy breasts. The straps on Phoebe don't connect to the cups. Instead they stop near the cups and are attached to the very thin mesh that acts as a slide sling both outside and inside the bra. You're getting ... your support from 2 layers of mesh! It appears that the band is very rigid while the wires are too malleable. So instead of the wires remaining stable while the band stretches to fit your ribs, the opposite is occurring. I will admit that I loved how tight this band was because I'm in between sizes and this was just right for me. Honestly, the design/construction is the worst I've ever tried on. I get more support from my pre-bravengelized size of 36D, that's how bad it is.

    It's such a gorgeous bra but it's useless to me. I loved the color, the stitching, the rose gold metal, the cage back, the keyhole at the gore, but all those cute details mean nothing when my breasts aren't supported. I really wanted to love this bra and I had such high hopes for it, but the Phoebe just couldn't live up to my expectations.

    Beautiful bra and I really wanted this to fit! But unfortunately, I think this is the wrong shape for me. The straps cut into the fullness around the top of my chest and armpit and the top of the cups have a rigid seam. The band is surprisingly very snug and the back band is very attractive without being made of thick powermesh!
