The band is too large for me. It moves around and creates discomfort. The straps fall off my shoulders often. It's covered in lace and the band is made of mesh. It's lightly padded. Because it is covered in lace, the material irritates my skin. The colour is gorgeous. One downside is that the bra feels cheap and looks cheap the more you wash it. It is not meant to last a long time.
This bra is not confortable. It is too much padded for my taste: it is a true push-up with heavy padding. The center gore is floating and I don't feel supported. The band rises up and the fabric is not strong enough: I am feeling like I will broke the bra every time I put it on and I don't feel secure wearing it.
I own 2 of these bras in nude and black. I wore them exclusively for about two years before I gave up on them and found bras that actually fit me.
They're not terrible bras. They're comfortable, seamless and give my breasts a nicely rounded shape. The criss-cross gore adds just enough visual interest to keep it from looking boring. It has a high gore to keep my centre-full breasts from spilling out of it.
Unfortunately, it doesn't come in a 30 band so I had to size up to a 32. The bra is a little looser than I'd like and it moves around a bit. Not the bra's ...fault. I blame La Senza for that and their ridiculously small size range. The bigger problem is that the bra is rather shallow and I am not. Because of that, my breasts force the top of the cups to curl outwards. I also get a small bit of quadding because of that.
To solve those fit issues, I resorted to wearing one of those super thin zero support sports bras over it. That adds just enough to the bra's structural integrity to keep everything where it should be.
If this bra fits you, it's not a bad bra. It's decent quality and you can get them on sale for a reasonable price. But if you have to struggle to make it work for you, there are better bras out there. Read more 129 more words
I had to sister size up one size for this because they don't carry my size. Because of this, the band isn't as snug as I'd like. Still, it's a fairly tight band - the 32 only stretches to 29.5. The cups are fairly projected fairly true to size. I don't spill out of the cups and all my tissue is well contained, but after trying it on for a couple minutes I noticed the the top edge of the cups are starting to curl outwards, which is a problem I run into a lot with La Senza bras. To me, that's a huge warning sign that this bra will not last long.
There is no silicone to help this bra stay up. Some people might like that, but my boobs need all the help they can get.
I had to sister size up one size for this because they don't carry my size. Because of this, the band isn't quite as snug as I'd like. Still, it's a tight band - the 32 only stretches to 28.5. The cups fit shallow and run small. Because of this I spill out of the cups and push the bra down and the underwires into my ribs. Ouch!
The inside of the band is lined with some sort of sticky treated fabric to help it stay up. The saleslady told me that it isn't silicone. My only concern with it is that I don't know how well it will hold up to repeated washing.
Much too big in the band for me and purchased before I knew what to look for in bras. The cups are very shallow because of the extra push-up padding, very close set, and have a satin trim along the bottom edge. There are 3 strap attachment points so it can be worn with a variety of clothing necklines, and a plasticized ribbon running the full length of the bra to minimize downward slipping when worn as a strapless.
This is your basic black t-shirt bra. You can change the straps from straight to criss-cross, which is a plus. La Senza doesn't make bras in my size (30E) so I bought this years ago in a sister size. I've since shortened the band quite a lot and it fits much better. It gives a nice round shape but not a lot of lift. Honestly I'm not sure why I still have this bra, since I have better ones now. I guess because it's the only seamless black convertible bra I own, and you never know when you'll need one.
This is my favourite style of La Senza bra. The gore higher than most of their bras, which I need. The cups are smooth under clothing and pretty projected. It gives a really nice silhouette and a nice lifted appearance. This particular bra didn't fit me, because I trusted a saleslady when I shouldn't have. I have another one in 32DD that fits much better. If it came in a 30DDD I would be all set!
