    S-BUSTY

    Fits

    I want to preface this review by saying that I am not pregnant, nursing, or planning to do either. I have fibrocystic breast changes and my doctor recommended I sleep in a bra to deal with the cyclical pain that I have. So this review is not aimed at pregnant or nursing women, I don't think, but if you find something useful in it, all the better.

    The size chart said I should have gotten M-Busty, however, seeing as outside my cycle my breasts don't fluctuate too much in size, and to make sure that the band fits properly, I got S-Busty.
    I think it was the right call. The ... cups already stretched out and I fill them out nicely, no quadding, no empty space, just a boob in a cup :).
    It is extremely comfy around the band.

    Some issues: the elastic in the band doesn't seem very durable. I put it on and took it off, and put it on again, and now it's already sort of folded over inside. I managed to straighten it but I can see this being an issue. The crossover cup does not give a nice look to the boob where the cup goes under it (idk how to explain this). However, since I will be using it as sleep bra (around the house bra as I call it), the appearance does not matter to me. The straps are obviously non adjustable, but they are wide and stretchy so that also does not matter much to me.

    update: After wearing it all day I will say the unadjustable straps are giving me some major shoulder pain. I'm pretty low set so I should have known this would be an issue.

    This bra has great support! The band-to-cup ratio is pretty perfect for me (30G in @Cleo balconette bras). It is really important to make sure the side seams are lines up properly, or the material for the left cup will dig into your right breast. When put on properly, it's comfortable and well-fitting.

    Immediately projected, center full, close set, short waisted, omega-shaped breasts....

    1. SO soft; softer than Bravado Original Nursing Bra (http://www.bratabase.com/browse/bravado-designs/the-original-nursing-bra-plus-style/S/)
    2. Accommodates a wide variety of breast shapes including center-full, close-set breasts
    3. Wide, supportive band provides excellent support
    4. Somewhat minimizing
    5. Effortless nursing access
    6. Band does not ride up on my 28" underbust: the band stretches to 28". Wonderful :-) This is a marked improvement over Bravado's Original Nursing Bra S+ whose band stretches to 34".
    7. Only the 'busty' sizes have elastic in the band. 1/8" of the band flipped up on one side. I did not find the flip irritating or bothersome.

    Disadvantages:
    1. I don't ... want to take it off.....which is why it does not yet have measurements ;-) Soon.
    2. This left some red welts on my neck and grooves from each wrinkle (gathering under each cup) along each breast. I may need an Extra-Small Extra Busty....when such a model is available.
    3. Lengthening the straps a bit may remedy the red welts. Because the straps are non-adjustable, I'll add fabric.

    This bra is incredibly soft and comfy. It doesn't give a ton of support and gives a somewhat minimized appearance, but is great for sleeping/lounging. You need to pull it over your head, but it's not too hard for me as I'm flexible and have a small frame. The band is slightly looser than I am used to, but it might be hard to pull off and on if it were much tighter. I am about a 26G with short, narrow roots and FOB and centre-full, soft, pendulous breasts.

    Didn't fit

    My shape: Projected, narrow, shorter roots, even/functionally full on bottom, soft tissue. Cleo Lily fits me best.

    I'm currently a 30G, and WOW this bra is really hard to put on and take off. I could barely stretch it enough to get it on. Once I was able to get it on, the band was a little looser than I'd like. The cups were definitely compressing my chest, but not uncomfortably so.

    The dealbreaker for me is the straps. I should have known better than to buy a bra without adjustable straps. I'm pretty low-set (straps usually have to be adjusted as long as they will go). The straps on this bra are just too short for me, and the pressure from them is pretty painful.
    Pity, since this bra is wonderfully soft. If only it had adjustable straps...

    • It IS difficult to get on and off. Try removing it after perspiring: frustrating.

      Disappointing the straps were too short! It is possible the compression you are feeling is related to how short the straps feel. Because of the design, if the cup is too small, the straps will absolutely feel too short. I hope adjustable straps are added soon. From what I comprehend, this bra as first available March 2017. So, it is new to market.

      If you have time and motivation, would you send Kindred Bravely an email requesting an xs-extra-busty and adjustable straps? Thanks :-) The owner keeps a rally of requests....

    • Autocorrect. "Tally" rather than "rally" and "as" in the 2nd paragraph, 5th sentence should be "was".

    • Love4Pollinators Emailing them is a great idea, thank you!

    I like the band being tight enough but it is SUPER difficult to put it on or take it off, even if I am only around 28DD/E. It is great that there's finally something available for those who need small bands and medium/large cups, but why do they expect busty people to pull over a bralette over head?

    I also found that such seamless bralettes makes my breasts a little too rounded, which is not the greatest thing because I have very firm and naturally pointy breasts. The busty size definitely feels much better than most bralettes (which often end up to be either too loose or like a compression sports bra), but still I can feel its existence more than a normal wired bra.

    I had hoped for using it as a lounge bra or for running errands during the weekend, but it seems a regular bra is more comfortable and easier to put on. In the future I will look for more structured bralettes with hook-and-eye closure.

    S-BUSTY

    Fits

    Blissfully soft. Supportive. Wide band. This is a marked improvement over Bravado's Original Small+.

    However, I really need an Extra-Small Extra-Busty for the best fit. The larger "small band" rides up over the lower portion of my breasts. It doesn't hurt, but I prefer the elastic under rather than over my breasts. Perhaps adding 1/2" of length to each strap may be all I require to make the Extra-Small Busty fit. Hmm...

    The Extra-Small band (28" stretched) provided excellent support on my 28" underbust. The Small band measures, roughly, 32". Still, this is 2" shorter than Bravado's Original Small Plus. But, ideally, Kindred Bravely would make an Extra-Small ... Extra-Busty. I will request this size soon. :-) Edit: I have placed the "first request" for an extra-small extra-busty. Many more people will need to place the same request before this will become available. Sigh.

    This bra is my most comfortable, breathable, and supportive. This is what I wish my Blue Canoe Organic Cotton Bra had been. Mecca. Heaven. Utopia. Kindred Bravely French Terry Nursing Bra. This is the bra I forget I'm wearing. The Organic Cotton style is fantastic, too.

    Runs smaller than pink and nude colorways, but is most similar to nude in fit. Neither nude nor pink cut into my upper roots, but gray does. It is not visible under thin knits and causes me no discomfort.

    Still, the most comfortable, supportive bra I've found. Tied with the Kindred Bravely Organic Cotton Nursing Bra.
