    Used to fit

    *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.

    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!

    Initially I ordered a 30DD, which was two sizes too small for me and exchanged it for 30F, which is now one size too big in the cups. The band is classic Gossard tight, would pass for a 28" in many other brands. The bra itself oozes with luxury, gentle soft material, but firmly holding. I couldn't say how it fits in the right size. This one fits well, apart from the cups that are too roomy.
