It cracks me up that they've named this "big bra" haha. Every step I'm getting a bit closer. I retook my measurements because I have lost a small amount of weight and my ribs went down nearly an inch it seems. I believe this one would fit a little better if I went down in the band/up in the cup. I've got such narrow shoulders that I'm not surprised the straps are too wide. I found it for about $29 on amazon so that's a bit of a win. I'm not a huge fan of the seam on the cup where the lace meets the padded bottom, I'm sure in certain t-shirts it'll be noticeable.
This bra does NOT fit like a 30HH. It's probably more like a 28H.
I usually wear a 30GG or 32G. I tried this bra in 3 sizes, and this was the closest I could get to the right fit in the cups. The band is definitely tight - I could not fasten the 30 without an extension, and the 32 was tight, but bearable. At the end of the day, though, this bra was just the wrong shape for me - not enough projection in the bottom of the cup.
All that being said, this is an absolutely gorgeous bra. ...It is covered with a beautiful and subtle embroidery on the cups, and has lace detailing along the tops of the cups, the center of the band, and the front half of the straps. It is incredibly well made, the fabric is soft and very comfortable, and there is side boning. The wires are nice and narrow, and (at least for me) the wings were high enough to hold everything in, but not so tall they were restricting my arms. I am really crushed that I could not get this bra to fit! Read more 97 more words
I never thought I would have anything to do with a padded mall. For heaven's sakes, this is a 70HH. I don't need any more padding. But when I tried this on, it was so incredibly comfortable, but has such nice lovely lace detailing so that it's not industrial-looking, even though there's so much fabric to it due to its size.
After trying a lot of very uncomfortable UK branded bras, this seems to suit my projected shape so much better. Instantly comfortable and not making me feel like I'm going to have to suffer for a little support.
I did find when I was trying them on at ...the shop that Kris Line sizing is wildly inconsistent. The same size in different colors can be vastly different in fit. Where one bra in the same size may have been slightly loose, the same exact size wouldn't fit around me and hook at all.
Speaking of hooks, one of the great things about this is that there are not three but four rows of eyes on the back of the bra for the hooks. Hopefully this will help with its longevity. Read more 82 more words
I got this bra through BraStop where it was called the Pearl Bra, but based on the pictures I believe it is the same model.
Sadly this one is too small for me. The band fits perfectly, but the center gore won't lay flat and I get quite a bit of quadraboob on my larger side. The fabric of this bra is nice and satiny. The lower opaque panels of the cup are padded and the upper lace panel is not. I like how sturdy/wide the straps are.
Overall, not a bad bra. I just need to figure out my size in Kris Line.
