I bought this bra while in the Journelle shop in Manhattan. To begin with, this bra is aesthetically really beautiful, in varied blush tones with lighter lace over slightly darker cup seams, a delicate bow, and detailed straps. The band is much more like a 28 than a 30, and is really firm and sturdy with its three-hook closure. As for fit, everything on this bra was perfect, with the exception that it didn't meet my personal shape preference of the look that lightly-lined cups give, but that's not the bra's fault! The band was plenty tight enough for me and the cups fit perfectly, with no ...empty space at the bottom and the lace laying *perfectly* over the top of my breast; quite a feat since the cups are rather full coverage and I don't have a ton of tissue at the top. The gore and cups are also quite narrow, something I didn't expect from any non-Polish brand. The wire channels at the gore are not overlapping, but they are touching, making them narrow enough for me, especially because the gore is rather tall. This bra itched just a little when I had it on, but I imagine that would go away within a few wears if I decided I was going to actually wear it. The actual mesh of the inside of the band and the straps are really soft. Overall I would be keeping this bra if I didn't know in my heart of hearts that it would just sit in my lingerie draw garnering longing looks but not actually being worn! Read more 164 more words
Hello secret sexy lacy bra! Didn't anticipate the blush/nude/cream color being anything but boring. Maybe my skin tone? Maybe I have weird taste? But the lace and all the feminine details make me feel like I'm wearing lingerie under my clothes
ok, i am about to post a lot of bras that don't fit. my reviews truly wont be helpful but hopefully my measurements are. I recently lost 75 lbs, so I need new bras. going from obese to healthy weight, well it is a big change, so I am pretty much starting from scratch. I took my measurements and ordered a heidi klum and a couple panache in the sizes closest, but all were just way too small in the cup, so obviously uncomfortable for me, but i wanted to get the measurements up here for others as once i start to zero in on correct size, I find others measurements helped me al ot with the right brand and style
The boning on the side makes this lacy bra a lot more supportive than I'd imagined. That said, the band is definitely big on me since I usually wear a 30 band. I followed the band suggestion on the Heidi Klum Intimates website, and unfortunately, I should have stuck with my usual band size. If I wear the bra on the tightest hook, I can get away with wearing the bra. However, I wouldn't be able to make this bra last once the lace stretched out.
Also, there is a slight quad boob effect on my right, with both breasts' apex being tilted downward rather than my usual, natural upward tilt. It isn't the most flattering bra underneath clothing, but it'll suffice.
