OK, the 34G in this didn't exactly work for me either. The band was a teeny bit tight, nothing that an extender wouldn't solve. The cups were the right size but wearing the bra I just didn't like the shape. My breasts were neither particularly uplifted nor projected. It seemed to flatten me at the top and pushed my breasts sideways a bit. Then when I looked at the pictures of me wearing it I could see how the wires slip far below my imf so it seems the cups are a little shallow at the bottom or else it's some other kind of shape ...mismatch. I debated about returning it because it is very soft and I liked how the lace in the upper cups was matched and the color, but in the end I decided not to settle for "almost" so back it went.I am becoming very discriminating about how my bras look and fit - after all, it's my money!
However, if the shape works for you this could be a very nice everyday bra. As I said, it's very soft and comfortable. Well-made too, so definitely worth a try-on if you are within their size range.
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
