I think this is my favourite of Katherine Hamilton bras. I love the gold metal detail and that the bra looks see-through due to their tan mesh lining, which looks super swish against black. It looks and feels really high-end and crucially is incredibly comfortable with an amazing shape. I've worn it for a week now and it's held it's shape and lift perfectly. I'm basically now living in this bra!!
~70J/32G ~65K/30GG, projected, bottom and center full, tall roots, avarage root width, soft tissue ----- I don't even know where to begin. I knew exactly how to write this review until I sat down and was actually about to type. I really, really wanted this brand to work for me, so much. I just love them, their designs, their motivation, it all really spoke to me, but I realised that it's simply not meant to be.
Good things first: KH bras designs are just perfect, they're incredibly classy and simple but at the same time fancy, they are silky and lacey and feel good on the skin. Abbies Cups are made ...out of the most soft and delicate lace, then you have the buttons in the middle, and the shiny silk parts. I feel like even victorian royalty would enjoy this if bras would've been a thing back then. The color is more purple then I guessed from the photos on the website, wich is not a problem at all. It's kind of a light mauvey pastel violet color I haven't seen in lingerie before, I love it, it matches well with the golden details.
As someone with really sensitive skin fabric is often an issue for me, I had bras where alone the fabric or seams made it unwearable for me, Abbie is pretty much the opposite of that. It's the nicest feeling bra ever, it's really soft, the cups are the softest thing ever, without beeing unsupportive in general.
Well, this bra is not supportive FOR ME. The gore doesn´t tack at all, and the wires, like so often, are too wide. The side support sling clearly cuts into my breat tissue and the wires are too high up. The straps are too far apart and cut into my skin. And here I had my revelation. If the wire is perfect, the cups are too small. If the cups fit me, the wire is too wide. It's the curse of having big boobs on a small, short torso.
Also, forgott to mention: The bottom part in the front also digs into my skin and almost immediatly leaves red marks, probably because the whole cut does't fit me and the gore doesn't tack on the top. On the photo with the little bit of redness and slight little mark I literally only wore it for a few seconds to take photos. I wore it all day yesterday and it was pretty painfull and red, almost bruised.
EDIT: I added the measurement. So, the wire width is actually 14,5cm, the same as other bras where the wire fit me nicely wich is wired, I could swear it was too wide. It is definitely deeper/taller tho. I guess I just got a problem with tall wires.
EDIT2: Also forgott to mention: I got thiss a little cheaper from the outlet section, the lining of the cup and the wirecasing are a lighter color then the full price version. Read more 382 more words
This is a really soft and lightweight bra that contains my breasts throughout the day. I'ts really hard to show the colour in the photos but I think that 'Vintage Rose' is a good description. I'm fairly pale skinned and this colour works as a really great 'nude' for me; I wear it under all of my pale colour clothes. I get a really nice smooth round shape with no cutting in and their wires are perfect for me.
It's really soft which I think it makes it particularly comfortable.
