I typically wear a 30D but wanted to try this one because it was super cute. The cups fit my shallow breasts perfectly. The cup is open and there is no gaping at the top. The band is big, but runs snug. The shoulder straps do not shorten enough. The fabric has piping that is raised in places and the patterns are all a little loud, so you probably have to be judicious in what you wear it under.
What a cute bra! The style is a bit vintage, and the fabric quality is fantastic. The color has yet to fade after a few hand washings, and my particular choice was (of course, gotta be bold) bright teal/green leopard print.
The band size was too large for me (as I knew perfectly well at the time of purchase) but I'm assuming—since this one felt pretty snug—that the band size runs a bit tighter on this particular bra. I couldn't quite fill out the cups on a normal day, but they practically spill out when it's shark week (do you like my euphemism?). I think, matched with the panties that come with this, they make a great pair for a special occasion but shouldn't be worn too often.
What sold this bra to me, however, was the J hook! Using it made this bra fit almost perfectly, whereas without it, it feels a bit off.
I had this in 32B, which I spilled out of, so I got it in 32C and it's such a cute bra. Being a "corselette" this has a wide band with three hooks, along with a low gore that site comfortably against my breastbone. The band feels like a 30 more than a 32. It's a pretty good fit for me and I really love the look of this bra. I plan to wear it on special occasions, if not for extended wear.
I got this on sale at Nordstrom Rack and while the size isn't perfect, it's comfortable enough for casual wear and I love the bra.
Ideally I would have a 32DDD, but my sister size of 34DD isn't too bad. There is a slight bit of gaping at the top of the cups near the strap, but this is a common problem for even my best fitting bra's that run this high.
The straps are soft and very comfortable, the cups feel nice and the longer line doesn't bother me in the least. I love the fun look of the bra so I am keeping this one.
I sewed ribbons into the band of this to make it a 26. I figured the three hooks/longline might make it more supportive and thus easier to make smaller. The demi cups fit absolutely perfectly on my shallow breasts--- they don't really look shallow now! This definitely runs a cup size big. (My correct sister size would be 32D, and the underwires are identical to a 30DD I have.)
