I'm about 4 hours into my first day wearing this bar. Here's how I feel so far:
I tried this bra in a 36DDD (what I measured as) and it was a smidge too big in the cups. This size feels perfect so far. The underwires don't seem to be poking my armpits; however, the cups feel like they may be too wide? The underwire width isn't bothering me at the moment, so I can't complain too much.
I'm used to wearing padded bras, but this one doesn't feel too exposing. It's just the right amount of thickness.
The line where the lace and the main ... bar part meet up sits a little strangely, but it doesn't appear to be too noticeable under a t-shirt. Something more form-fitting may have an issue.
The gore isn't sitting flat against my sternum, but it's less than 1 cm away.
The band is so comfortable! It's not cutting into my backfat painfully, which is a definite win.
I've been wearing these bras for a couple of weeks now, so I think I have a better feel for them.
The good news is that the band still feels nice and comfy. No complaints about that whatsoever!
My biggest complaint is the underwires digging into my armpits (negating my first review). That's pretty much a constant battle. If they were just a little bit shorter, I don't think it would be an issue.
The second problem is the center gore. It's so tall on me, that it always feels like it's pointing outward when I'm sitting for a while.
The third problem is that I think the straps are too wide set for me. I feel like I keep adjusting them and can't find that sweet spot.
A fourth, and completely superficial, issue is that I feel these bras make my boobs look small.
The more I wear these bras, the more I'm realizing they're just not right for my body.
