First thing I noticed after putting it on is that the center gore is very wide! The straps also cut in under my armpits a bit, but that's a problem I have with most bras just due to having a short stature.
The white/mink design has definitely got a quaint, vintage feel. It comes up a little too high on the chest. The material is also not very stretchy, and coupled with the scalloped top design, it gapped up top since I'm more full on bottom. If it weren't for the lack of stretch, I would fit perfectly in this.
I like the almost-sheer cups but the seams are very thick and white and show under shirts, even though the embroidered details are more subtle. It's very annoying.
I kinda went out on a limb in ordering this. There were nearly no reviews online, and I knew I would have to buy a 30 band instead of my usual 28 because this bra begins at 30. On top of all of that, this was the first unlined bra I've ever owned. It was so gorgeous that I just had to buy it.
While I'm not sure if the shape it gives is to be expected of unlined bras, I really didn't like the shape it gave me. Call me a sucker for moulded t-shirt bras, but this looked kinda pointy, kinda droopy, compared to the lovely roundness ...I'm used to.
When I first looked at this bra the wires seemed ridiculously narrow to me, yet after putting it on it wasn't a problem. Also, I get the tiniest bit of wrinkling in the cups, along the seaming down the center. It's not really enough to be a problem, but it's there.
I have to wear this on the 3rd set of hooks, a crime in the world of well-fitting bras, but this one was so cute I bought it in the wrong band size anyways.
So far I have yet to wear this anywhere but to bed as I can't get over how odd the shape looks to me under clothes. However, I'm planning to keep it because at the very least, I'll have an adorable pink and turquoise bra to wear to sleep. It's rather comfortable as well.
I thought I'd note that on first receiving the bra, a few pieces of the embroidery were already coming out, so I can't say that this is the absolute highest quality bra. Read more 176 more words
