Full name: Limited Collection Satin Padded Balcony Bra (T81/8242P) in Cream Mix. As far as I know, it's from one of the 2010 collections.
This bra is discontinued, but the shape and fit are pretty representative of Limited Collection A-DD balconettes.* The cups are wide and shallow, the straps are quite wide-set, and the band runs tight. The bra has thin, flexible padding in the lower part of the cup and a lace panel at the top, with a thin strip of elastic that (on me) cuts in really easily. I'm not sure if I just need a larger cup or if it's a shape issue - the cup ...edge is often problematic for me even when I've got the cup size right. On the positive side, it's a very pretty style with beautiful details.
*The Limited Collection range includes A-DD and DD-GG models, but the construction and fit in DD-GG is very different and they tend to run larger in the cup.
ETA, October 2012: I removed the elastic strip from the lace on this bra and my other M&S balconette with the same cut ( http://bra.pe/SB0u/ ), and it solved my problems with the cup edge cutting in; it seems that I just needed the cups to be more open on top. The bra is still too wide-set for me - nearly 28cm measured between the outer tips of the wires vs. 25cm in my Lepel Honeycomb - but removing the elastic has made it look and feel a lot better. The fit issues I reported reflect the fit before alteration. Read more 154 more words
This bra is extremely cute and quite comfortable. The band feels true to size, but the cups run small since my larger breast is right on the edge of quadboobing. I would recommend sizing up at least one cup size on this one. In addition, shallow breasts seem best suited to the shape of the cup.
Edit: Alas, the quadboob only seems to have grown more prominent/uncomfortable, which is unfortunate since this bra is adorable.
I love this bra so much! First of all it looks very nice. It runs tight, which is good for me since I'm not a true 28-band. It still rode up a liiiittle on my back, which could just be from my slouching awkwardly for the hour before I took it off. It hold my left breast nicely - perfect fit. However, the right cup is too large (My right breast is about a cup size smaller than my left). Overall, this bra is amazing!
