The Great Amazon Prime Wardrobe Try-On, Part 4! My shape: projected, soft tissue, narrow shoulders and roots, FOB Fit: Not sure in what universe this bra would be measured as a 32 band! I couldn't even clasp it all the way. WAY tight. Be warned if you are thinking of grabbing this bra! Wires are quite wide, as well as the straps. Reminds me of the width of Curvy Kate wires and straps, if that helps give a good comparison. Appearance: Pretty black/charcoal lacy bra. The straps have this weird crinkly silver fabric halfway up them? I'm not really all about that, personally.
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
I loved the aesthetics of this bra and hate cleavage, so I was glad to find this unlined, full-coverage option. Unfortunately, though I tried to convince myself that it looked good on me, it just didn't.
I sister-sized to a 32F (my true size is 30G), and the band fit well enough, though there was some gappage between my sternum and the gore (the cups were possibly a bit small for me). My squishy, full-on-bottom breasts were squeezed into a sort of flat spheroid, (American) football-on-its-side shape, spilling into my underarms and making my torso look wider than necessary. Also, the prominent horizontal seam was distorted in a strange and very unflattering way. I thought immediately of a funhouse mirror.
The mesh lining is fairly stiff. The straps are narrow and without much room for adjustment, so if you need lots of support, I might pass this one up.
Very sad this didn't work out. I might try it in a 30G if I can find one, just because I love torturing myself.
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.
