This bra does not fit me at my current measurements. I wore it when I was about 25 or 30 pounds heavier than I am now. So I did not fill out the "how does it fit" portion of this review.
That said: when I was a 38G this bra fit me BEAUTIFULLY. This was the first bra to introduce me to the virtues of a very tight back band. It was usually very comfortable. After about 8 hours of wear, though, it would start to get a bit ouchy/feel tight in the band. And, I am kind of short-waisted so that was a LOT of bra for ...me. If I didn't watch my posture all the time, the band would poke into my ribs uncomfortably. This is a very robust bra and I have been known to refer to it as "my breastplate."
I got a lot of great wear out of this bra! It is cut somewhat high in the front. I could wear it under most v-neck tees without show-through, but in a more low-cut shirt it would show. If I wore it out dancing it just looked like I was wearing a camisole, though, as it is very plain, so I had no problems with that.
Some other women have mentioned that this bra is too wide in the front and moved their boobs to the underarm area. I did not find that this to be the case for me. I suspect that those people were not properly fitted. In my case this bra moved everything front and center and kept it there. I looked slender and not bulky. It had a slightly pointy, but round, silhouette. I think the pointiness is inevitable when very large breasts are on a narrow torso. The silhouette this bra gave me was very sexy, and made me feel very good about myself and my figure.
I loved this bra and found it to be a very good bra when it fit me. I would recommend it to anyone who has a large bust and likes contoured cups. Read more 239 more words
This bra unfortunately makes my breasts more pointy than round. It doesn't budge once I get it on. It is extremely uncomfortable for long periods of time. I did force myself to wear this style for a long time, and they do last forever, if you wash them by hand and hang to try. The boning digs into my armpits and sides when I sit, and I can't stand to wear this style anymore. The Le Mystere Lace Tisha Bra (965) seems to irritate me less, and I would much rather wear it, although I prefer the plainer details of the Dream Tisha for some of my tops.
I bought this bra because the 34G Lace Tisha was SO small in the cups (which was to be expected since my true size is 34FF/G UK. However, this bra is ridiculously large compared to the 34G Lace Tisha. It is bizarre really. The cups are outlandishly larger AND the straps do not cinch down nearly enough. I will look for a 34H Lace Tisha to see if it fits right. From my online research, the two bras are SUPPOSED TO BE the same except for the lace. These two bra styles are FAR FROM THE SAME.
Bought this bra and wore it around the house hoping i could make it work. Of course it was too small for me and ive had it in my drawer for about 2 years now and dont think i will ever get down to that size.
Cups were slightly too large for my breast shape and did not fill them out. There was room left at the bottom and tips of the bra. Band was extremely tight. When used with a bra extender, the band felt better and felt secure. Straps are comfortable thick.
