I am fairly happy with this bra. It is a pretty, comfortable everyday bra and it fits fairly well, although the shape/style is not perfect for me it is pretty close. The back is really really tight! I usually wear 28 but this is good for me on the loosest hook,
Edit: I stopped wearing this bra. I think the size was right, but the shape not quite. Not sure exactly what was wrong, think maybe the wires were the wrong shape (not wide or open enough???) for me. Also I didn't really like the shape (or more lack of shape) that I got with this bra. But it is still a pretty, everyday bra. Just not quite right for me.
It's a well-constructed bra that's great for narrow, projected and even/FOB shapes. The lace on top is stretch lace so it can accommodate a certain amount of top fullness but there's an elastic band running from gore to wing that closes off the cup pretty quickly. If you're significantly FOT it might not work so well.
The cup was great for my shape. The wires are narrow but softer; they start to distort quite a bit before the 28.5" stretched length so I doubt the cup diameter when I'm wearing it is anywhere near as small as what I measured. But ...it definitely is narrow. The band is very tight for a 30 and it's firm. I've had to wear it with an extender (and I prefer my Cleos with a 28 band!) The straps are super short - fully adjustable, but I'd like probably another 3/4 inch in length to get it as long as I'd prefer.
The material is of a lower quality than my other bras, but honestly that doesn't surprise me for the price point. It's still decent. It's not the smoothest - the lace and mesh can get a bit scratchy, but it's nothing too irritating. Except the straps, but the length is a huge contributor to that problem. If they weren't digging in, I don't think they'd bother me.
In my opinion, it's a very good bra for my shape/size. I'd say to sister-size up or plan on using an extender to avoid band issues. It would do better with someone whose boobs were a bit higher set or who never has problems with too-short strap length (this isn't the first bra I've had a problem with and it won't be the last). It's especially good for anyone looking for a well-made bra at a lower price point. It retails for $33 USD, but I got mine on sale for just over $13. Read more 233 more words
This bra is almost amazing. It comes in many lovely (lacy) colors - mine is grayish-lavender - and the shape is round and high (but not cakes on a plate high!). The cups are very comfortable - unpadded but fairly firm. The band is pretty firm. It's most noticeable after many hours and when laying down, and it could be uncomfortable in/on the ribs.
This is a great everyday basic bra, comfortable and pretty. It runs small in both band and cup, I had to go up a full size (32F instead of 30E-F). The shape is rounded but still natural, and fits more like a full cup than the average balconette, which I personally like. The lace is soft and a lot better quality than I expected from a budget brand.
For the price, it's a solid bra. The shape is smooth and slightly rounded, not pointy, and there's a little bit of lift. It's a low-key shape that's neither the lifted-to-the-sky "Hi, we're boobs! Look at us!" look nor squashed/minimized/droopy, but a happy medium. The lace isn't itchy, but the wide-set straps irritated my armpits, so I did an alteration to move them closer together. I gained weight and it's now a bit too small all over for me, but it was a decent bra while it lasted.
The band is very snug. Good for less than 28" under bust. Love the red lace. It's very pretty. I like the band because it's good for people who don't have a V shaped ribcage above their under bust. The straps are too wide for me and if I wear an extender on the middle the cups don't feel too wide anymore. There is a flap of extra bra material above my nipple towards the middle of the cups, like the cups are too tall for me.
I like this bra a lot. It's very pretty, is simple and elegant, and gives an excellent rounded shape that enhances the silhouette. It also has thick straps and thick wings which give great support without bulges.
I dislike how high the underwires come up. It sometimes causes pain on my sternum or the adjacent ribs. The high gore also appears to sit on some of my breast tissue (tall roots?). There are also big rings that hold the straps on the back; sometimes these dig in.
I'm normally a 30G-GG and the volume of this bra is about right. It's slightly minimizing on my very projected shape, but gives a nice round shape.
The stretch lace is very acommodating, but the top of the bra still cuts into the top of my slightly tall boobs. That's a chronic issue for me, and one that I can fix by removing the elastic from under the top of the lace and opening the upper cup up a bit, so not a deal breaker.
The straps just barely adjust long enough for me, though, and the front of the cup cuts into the front of my armpits, I'm ...guessing because the cups are too wide for me, and would be fine for someone who had a less extreme root width. (Mine is about 5 inches, at most.)
All in all could be a great casual everyday bra for someone, but it's not the magical neutral for me that I was hoping for.
If they would extend the Just Peachy range to GG, I think I would have a winner in a 30GG.
UPDATE: With the elastic under the lace removed, bra is comfortable and very wearable. I don't like how close the cup is to my armpits (due to wires too wide for me), but it's a much better fit than my freyas. Still think a 30GG (maybe with an extender) would have better proportions for me, but will call this a success and probably eventually but it in black. Read more 142 more words
