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
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!
This is the first bra I ever altered. It had been my favourite bra, and a favourite bra is certainly not a place to learn about bra construction. I messed this one up by removing too much of the band on the right side. It is now tricky to get on because the clasps and hooks are by my shoulder blade. The right cup now pulls back, and the right strap is on the wrong side of my shoulder blade. Meanwhile, it quadboobs on the left. My error made the shape of the cups worse off than they started. It's wearable, but itchy around the straps and wings
Prior to the alteration, it was aesthetically pleasing, comfortable, soft, itch-free, and way too big in the band. Alas.
