I realize now that this is the wrong size for me, but in my ignorance I thought it fit great. It's soo comfy. After 3 years, no stitching has come out & the underwires are still in place. Tho, the light padding on the top is starting to roll or something and the straps have sssstrrreeeched so bad!
I hate that my boobs don't fill the top and at the same time I get quads in the bottom center because they fall into each other. This bra is really for shallower, maybe firmer boobs.
This bra would fit perfectly except for the straps. The band is comfortably tight without digging, the gore tacks, and my breast tissue fills the entire cup comfortably. The underwire doesn't dig anywhere and there is great support. But the straps are set too far apart and like to try to fall off, and where the strap meets the cup digs in and chafes my arm. Perhaps if the strap was a softer material, it wouldn't dig in as much. I may try to alter this and add a pad.
I love the patterns and softness of the fabric that Maidenform uses, but I have full on bottom boobs and I don't think this is a good style for them because though I get quadraboob near the bottom of the cup, there's still a little gaping at the top.
The wire for this bra is 1/2" shorter than the wire channel, and in my bra it tends to migrate to the back of the channel during wear, which pulls the center gore away. The wire does not poke my underarm even when it's at the back of the channel.
I have this bra in about five different colours, because at the time, it was the best-fitting bra I could find.
It's the classic bra issue: the band is too big and rides up, the cups are too small, and it gives slight quad-boob. The fit is close, but not completely correct. I went from these to a Freya Patsy Padded Half Cup Bra (1223)](model:9479) in 30FF, and the Freya fits much better.
If this bra fits properly, it's a nice bra. It's a moulded-cup, so it holds its shape very well and prevents nipple show-through. It has a teeny-tiny bit of padding to provide a bit of ...lift to the bust, but not a ridiculous amount. The fabric is soft and comes in many colours, and even has matching undies, if you're the sort who likes matching undies. The undies, however, are made of the same polyester material that is on the external part of the bra, and it doesn't breathe. I bought one pair because it was so darn pretty, but the fabric makes them uncomfortable. The shape is comfy, though!
The straps are too thin for my liking; they dig into my shoulders, but this is in part because of the too-large band. The straps had to compensate for it.
The circle of shiny things glued onto the front is VERY tough. They don't come off, even with years of wear and washing!
All in all, if it fits properly, it's a cute t-shirt bra, but it's not the bra for me. Read more 144 more words
My first DD bra & still my favorite. Very comfortable. This bra seems to me to fit more like a 32E. It is the only 32DD bra I bought that I don't quadboob in after tissue migration. There's a little touch of orange in a glass, but it doesn't show up under shirts. One of my go-to bras, and probably will be until it falls apart.
