    UPDATE 12/2015: This bra is now much too small for me and I get even more quad boob. The band hasn't loosened up at all and I still need the full length of an extender to wear it. It's also still a bit itchy sometimes which must be related to the embroidery. I'd love to get this bra again in a bigger size though it's discontinued. I'm still wearing it because it's not uncomfortable and I really like how it looks.

    ORIGINAL REVIEW:
    I just got this bra in the mail not 15 minutes ago, but I thought I'd whack out an initial review now and update after I've worn ... it in case anyone else wants to pick it up while it's still on clearance.

    First off, the band of this bra is crazy tight. Mine measures about 28.5" stretched. I can wear it but it feels too tight. The hook spacing is very narrow so I'm not sure if I'll be able to make my extenders work with it. The wires are very bendy. Resting they're very U shaped but if I put it on they pull out to the sides a lot. This happens even if I very gently pull on the bra when I'm not wearing it. This of course makes the wires functionally a lot wider and more swoosh shaped and the cup shallower.

    The cup shape is a bit odd. It's pointed which I didn't expect from a vertically seamed bra like this. It's not a deal breaker (at least not for $12) but it's not really what I wanted. The cups also run a bit small. I got a 30DD and it's about perfect on me. I'm between a 30D and 30DD most of the time. I get a bit of cutting in at the top of the cup due to the thin elastic sewn along the top edge. I'll be removing this but it's complicated by the fact that the straps are attached with the same stitching as the elastic. I'll probably leave a chunk of it.

    Overall the bra seems a bit scratchy but I think it'll soften up. The rings on the straps are also extremely creaky which I'm hoping goes away.

    I got the matching thong and it's very nice. It's made of much softer power mesh than the bra wings so the sizing is a little more forgiving. It's more of a brazillian cut in my opinion but very nice. I think it runs a bit big. I got a UK 10 which is usually spot on for me (36" hips) and it's fine but if you're any smaller you should probably size down.

    If I'd paid full price I think I would be much less pleased.

    38DD

    Didn't fit

    Other reviews indicated the band was firm, so I decided to try the 38dd at $12(!) since I thought the balcony looked nicer than the underwire style and it only goes to DD. This size works comfortably for me in Panache and Wacoal, but the fit is off here. If I scoop the sides in, the gore does not tack and rests on the breast tissue (although this seemed to improve a skosh as it stretched through the day). This color is so so pretty though, I'm keeping it. I would try a 38E if it existed. I will not be buying another balconette from Lulu Tout going up only to DD. I'll stick to the D-G underside range and give my regular 36f a try the next time.
