*UPDATE after wearing for a 10 hour shift* NO.No.no. This bra does not work for me. At least for any lengthy amount of time. Perhaps I could wear for short periods. While the band was super awesome and kept the bra impeccably stable, the straps and under wires were intolerable as time went on. The cups go all the way up to the crook of my arm pit, and the straps too short (and frankly rough) and very wide. This mostly kept all my tissue and even my tail of Spence in the cup. I did find that I had to pull it in from time to time to ...keep it from getting trapped under the too tight strap. I could feel ever micro movement of my breast, after the first four or five hours every time I stepped down and my breast followed suit the under wire would dig into my chest even more than it already was. Between this and the straps the bra became unbearable. The top of the under wire dug in so bad on my side that it looked like I had a puncture wound when I took it off in the morning. Definitely made my bust look quite nice, not a whole lot of cleavage though. Perhaps the bra would soften with wear, but I'm not going to test this. *Original Review* This bra is quite gorgeous. I'm starting to wonder if I can actually fit molded cup bra's in my post-BtB size. When I first put on this bra my immediate thought was: "Wow,I don't actually need the straps." I then had to completely loosen the straps for comforts sake, they are quite firm and not very soft. But not uncomfortable. I never thought I would run into a bra that was too tall (on the outside of cup) with straps too wide! The cups do not feel too tall without the straps, so I believe if I were to move the straps in then I would no longer feel like the cups were too high. The cups are stiff and the under wires are fairly wide (although I do not think they are wide for the size). The cup is pretty small for the size as I am used to seeing a 6.5" depth on 28D, so I'd definitely say it's more of a 26E. The gore is quite low and the space between the outside of the wire casings is only about a centimeter. These cups would definitely be great for average spaced breasts that are FOT/even full everywhere except for the bottom of the breast. I imagine this is supposed to push the breast up, but there is no bump pad to assist with this. If I could get the cups to stay and not be pushed away by my breast, I would begin quading. I believe this will happen if I move the straps in as this would better help the cups stay where they're supposed to stay. A bra has to hold my breast quite firmly against my chest to make it take the shape of the very shallow bottom of the molded cup bra; such as this one and of the Deco. Which moves into my next point. I cannot get bra to stay in my IMF. Which I am sure is because it is too shallow at bottom of cup. I swore I pushed it up as high as I physically could. I thought it was IMF. Then I took it off and saw the clear wire marking below my IMF. I definitely think I could do with a bit more narrower of a cup, but it was perfectly acceptable. I yearn for the bra that will lift me, push me center and give me lovely rounded shape. Read more 517 more words
November 2015 Update: I know for sure I took pictures of this bra originally, but after changing computers and phones a few times, they're probably lost forever. I've added new pictures. The band is definitely tiny, better for someone who needs a 24 or 26 band. Obviously, the cups are WAY too small. When I first put it on, I thought that maybe I could get some good uplift or cleaveage, but after swooping and scooping, you can see that all it does is cut in and STILL not push together even though my breasts are bigger. The cups are just way too wide apart. Apparently this would ...better fit as a tight 28D, so like a 24E or 26DD probably.
Original 2014 Review: Not sure how this is different than the T81075418118G Plunge, other than the measurements. They look the same, but the plunge has an average depth of 7 inches, and this bra has an average depth of 6.7 inches. The second number is closer to mine, which came to just above 6.5 inches, which means the cups are definitely too small. While they are very open on top, they still cut in a bit. The give great uplift, but as others have be saying, the cups are oddly wide and outward pointing for a plunge bra that's advertised to give cleavage. Even with "chicken cutlets," I can't get cleavage out of this thing, which is what I was hoping this bra would do. Maybe I can make the center gore narrower? I have wide-set breasts and the only bra to ever give me cleavage was from Braologie but it's gone and been way stretched out and warped by now. I just want one "sexy outfit bra"!! XD
I'll probably do a more in-depth review later. Read more 190 more words
While this bra technically fit me, I didn't really like how it felt. The band was very tight, and the underwires were extremely firm. The cups were also very stiff and overall the bra was very uncomfortable.
On me, I have found that the 28G (28FF) and the 28F fit very similarly, this is why they both sorta fit me. The 28G is larger only by a little with higher cups and more of it going into your armpits. The band on this bra is very firm, it fits like a loose 24 or tight 26 band. I can fasten it, put 2 fingers under the band, etc but it feels quite tight.
I dislike the wires the most. They are very stiff and quite painful. I need to bend them to relieve pressure off certain areas.
