It fits great initially, but as the day goes on the fabric falls down and the top starts cutting in across my breasts. It seems to be a FoB friendly, not FoT friendly bra. The band is pretty snug, so it's ideal for someone who needs a 28 band.
Wow the band runs small on this bra! I measure 26.5" underbust so an overly snug 30 band doesn't bother me but if you measure more than 28", I would bump up to a 32 band in this bra. The design of the bra is such that the back is higher than the front no matter what. It's not riding up because it's too snug for that but I question the level of support it provides with the back curving up higher than the front.
A review on the figleaves site had mentioned the cheap looking lace on this bra. I disagree, it's lovely and overall the quality of ...materials is very good. And this purple color is much better in person, online it looked too reddish. The apex is very high on the cup, so this might be a better choice for full on bottom breasts like mine. The wires are pretty narrow and the cup fabric is deep and stretchy, this is not a bra for wide-rooted shallow girls but works for me. The cups push all the breast tissue to the front and center, very forward pointing with smooth sides. The skinny elastic band at the top of the already stretchy lace panel seems unnecessary and creates a slight quadboob on my larger side. On full on top breasts, I imagine this would be problematic.
When wearing just the bra, I thought it gave a very pointy shape. But under clothes it's a rounded natural shape. I liked the fit and comfort of this bra until I wore it all day and my sternum was so bruised I couldn't wear an underwire bra at all the next day. I don't know if this is due to wires that are too high or low but I think I need to bend them.
ETA: I just bought 2 more of these in 30FF because my breasts seem to have inflated/grown and I am crazy quadboobing. Read more 211 more words
Good fit, depending on the day. Sometimes I get a bit of wrinkling in the cup but nothing major. This feels like a slightly better fit, cup wise, than the 34E, though sometimes by the end of a long day the 32 can start to feel uncomfortably tight. Really pretty and well constructed bra at a decent price.
My only complaint (and I've seen this mentioned before) is that sometimes when I'm moving around the wire makes a funny squeaky noise.
This was the first bra I bought after trying correct sizing, but I miscounted and ordered a cup size larger than I should have. The band on this bra is TIGHT. My underbust measurement is just barely under 30 inches and I can't get this hooked unless I exhale and stretch it all the way out. The straps are also short and dig into my shoulders even when fully extended. Because it's the wrong size, the cups are a tad too roomy in the front. I ended up altering the bra.
I love almost everything about this bra. The underwires are padded with a comfy material, the band is snug but not too tight (it's bigger than the 30f model I tried first), and the cups don't show through most of my shirts despite the lace and seems. Unfortunately, the straps don't extend very much and are fairly wide-set, which makes the bra uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time.
Band is just right, cups seem to be the right width, gives decent lift and shape. The only problem is that I have some wrinkling at the top of the cups. I think that my soft breasts (once again) need a shallower cup. Great bra for someone with a bit more projection, though. Comfortable, inexpensive , and it comes in pretty colors.
ETA: After a couple of days, the wrinkling problem is getting better. I'm not sure if it's a bit of tissue migration, or the fabric or what, but it's a pretty good fit now.
It's the scratchiest out of all the bras I own, but it's still really comfy. The lace is stretchy and accomodates a lot, but is still too small. Going to try a 30FF and see how that is in comparison. Narrow wire, which is great for me, but might not be for everyone. I feel like it gives me a 'soft hills' but a slightly pointy look, which is fine by me.
First off, I cut the last top part off the bra. The elastic caused it to wrinkle in a weird way even though it fit fine. It is now a half-cup that fits perfectly!
I measure a 30DD and fit perfectly into the padded version of this bra in that size. I heard you should go a cup size up in this non-padded version and it is true. I even have a slight quadboob but it isn't noticeable under clothes so it isn't an issue. This bra gives a very rounded shape which I love and nothing is too tight or pokes. It fits but it needed a little modification.
Very pretty and comfortable bra. Doesn't seem to fit my breast shape. It's been an everyday bra for the past few months. I got it a band size up and cup size down from my them normal 32G (this is now inaccurate) and it has since stretched in both areas in my opinion. The back is too large and I get serious wrinkles in the top of the cup. Really a shame as it's so nice and easy for an every day bra. The light blue is a gorgeous color but the lace shows through thin shirts. Great bra for the money, I'll probably order another in my new size.
This bra has two different types of material forming the cup - a more structured under-part, and a lacey top. The joining region wrinkles oddly if you don't fill the cup 100%, giving a look under a shirt like your nipples are poking out even if they're not. The straps sit far apart and end up in my armpits, but I have a very narrow frame. Don't get this bra if you can't handle very narrow underwires. The bra is extremely attractive, however, and fits rather comforatble except for the strap problem. The straps are fully adjustable.
