This Le Mystere is another bra I bought last year at the beginning of this ABTF journey. I guessed at the size and was very wrong. At that point I still didn't understand how bras should fit and I wore it several times until one night it was so uncomfortable that I ripped it off my body in the car while we were driving home.
I love the plunge style and it looks great with low cut tops. It has convertible straps and soft memory foam cups with some padding.There is a thin edge at the top of the cups which in theory makes it ok for wearing with tshirts. In this size the cups are tall and wide. I'm closer to a 34FF in Le Mystere so I can't comment on fit but I am going to try it again in a different size.
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.
This is a very sexy, comfortable bra. I lost a lot of weight so it sadly no longer fits me. It didn't get much wear because I bought it relatively close to the weight loss. I'm a big fan of this brand.
This review will be somewhat limited since the bra did not fit me.
I used the size calculator on the Le Mystere site since one Amazon reviewer of another Le Mystere style said she was successful in getting the right size using it. For this style the calculator didn't work so well. With a 33.5" snug underbust I need a 34 or 36 band depending on the make and style. From the scant sizing information I could find about Le Mystere it didn't seem the bands are very stretchy but this style has a very soft and stretchy band that is also a bit ...longer than a lot of size 36 bands. When I put it on I fastened it on the tightest set of hooks right out of the bag. The cups are also larger in proportion to the larger band. I returned this one and reordered in 34G which I'm hoping will be a better fit for me.
All the materials used in this bra are very soft and it seems that it would be very comfortable in the correct size. The lower portion of the cups and band are a stretchy microfiber, and the upper cups and band are stretch lace. The whole bra except for the upper cups is lined with with very soft tricot fabric that has just a little bit of stretch. I like that they matched the pattern of the lace on the upper part of the cups. The center bow is not overly large and the rhinestone drop is not gaudy. The straps are a little on the wider side but the satin and matte finish on them makes them look more narrow than they are. All in all it's a very pretty bra that's quite wearable and versatile for every day. Read more 203 more words
I needed to find a bra to go under a strapless bridesmaid's dress, and the saleslady said this size would be closest to what I need. The band doesn't move one inch because of the silicone grips, but the gore is firmly on top of my breasts. Not the best fit, but it has good enough support that I'll be able to get through the night without adjusting too much.
Very tight band, left deep indents all over ribcage. The cups are really thick, so it feels almost like armor, and holds you in tight. The lace is pretty, but there's not a lot of room to adjust the straps if necessary.
Was way too tight for me, and I almost always wear a 36 band. Forced myself to wear it one evening and had to unsnap the back. Cups were way too large. Still do like the construction of this bra, especially for t-shirts.
This bra has a very firm tight band. It's actually very uncomfortable. The wires are to wide for my frame but I like it because under scoop neck shirts it offers full coverage. Most of my bras are plunge or deco and look weird under high scoop neck shirts. I hope to find other comfortable full coverage bras that are slightly padded and still give round look. But in the meantime I'll keep it and wear it occasionally.
