I love it. SO happy I got it for free from runs_with_scissors . It's comfortable and does seem to run a little small in the band; fits similar to Freya 28s. The cups fit me like a demi, which I assume is not what they're supposed to look like, this being a balconette, but they're so open on top it doesn't even matter. Little to no quadraboob spillage. Edit: okay, SOME quadraboob. I'm not sure what bra construction witchcraft is making this work, but this flimsy looking bit of lace with underwires actually makes my boobs look more rounded on top, rather than the straight ski slope ...from my collar to my nipple that is my naked boob shape. It's flattering is what I'm trying to say. The seams are slightly bumpy under clothes but not hideously so. Not that I care when it looks this good when the clothes come off.
Note on the pictures (again): the bra only pictures (taken with the main camera on my phone) are accurate colourwise. The front cam, however, is fond of turning everything blue. This bra is charcoal grey.
Edit: the seams do leave marks on my skin. not a deal breaker for me but thought I should mention it.
Edit 2: I got a 30C Lulu Tout Juliette from bluebelle2 which is the same cut in a bigger size and it's a perfect fit. I find that one more comfortable so I will be relisting this one. Read more 137 more words
Not a bad lacy bra. It fits on my shallow and wide rooted breasts though the wires could be a teeny bit wider if I had to be picky. The center panel has a hole in it for extra stretchability. The lace on the top of the cups flares out a bit and it doesn't lay flat on my chest even though the cups do. I really like that the straps are fully adjustable.
The only thing I'm concerned is the quality of the bra. It's fair for the price, but I got mine new but it already looks a little worn and frayed. The underwires are also pretty thin and I fear they may be flimsy. The cloth incasing the wires twists and turns around the wire pretty easily. Also a thing to note is that this bra is flammable as noted in its tag: "Keep away from fire"
The band feels very firm, I am glad I sized up one size from my "measured" size. I still might be in a slightly too small cup size but the fit of this is far from tragic. This is a great looking bra with really nice quality hardware and a slightly transparent yet structured lacy look.
Update: upon taking some pictures, I have decided that this bra is a little small on me. It has that "just barely a nipple cover" look to it. Because the tops of the cups are open it doesn't visibly quadboob me, but I definitely need to go up 1-2 cup sizes and/or maybe seek out other styles.
I received this bra as free offering and glad I was able to try Lulu Tout in such a way. I live in a town with little sub-32" band opportunities, so a big thank you. I wore the bra two days in a row for 13 hours each with no discomfort on either day, even at the end of the second. The cup colour reminds me of denim while the band is a darker grey. A nice alternative to black and I hope to go undie shopping to find something co-ordinating. I am pleased with the fit as the cups are more open on top and the ...volume is focused front and center which is good for my shape. I thought that the band was a smidge too big as I had a little migration so will try the hooks on a smaller setting next time. It is not a T-shirt bra but worked under a cotton, button up shirt. There are two layers of thin, sheer fabric which kept my nips in check so I do not have to put a wee liner in.
I am now confident to try this brand in other models or even this model in different colours if still available. Read more 103 more words
