    Short, projected, omega shape, slightly narrow, close set, center full, even breasts....

    If bras were fashion models, this bra would have the highest paid contract. Absynthe photographs effortlessly. :-) Seriously, I deleted six photos and still have ten displaying. The details throughout the construction are amazing. The lace and flowers are feminine and tasteful. The color....the color....luminous and unique.

    The straps are half adjustable and half stretchy. So, half of the straps are the most supportive, soft, non-stretch fabric. If Cleo used fabric like this, I would hold their straps in high regard. The quality here in Absynthe is significantly higher....as is the price. I ... will pay for this level.of comfort and durability. There is no doubt these bras are good investments. The Cleo Skye I just purchased arrived with fraying at the gore and wings. wendybien had previously owned this bra and there is no sign of wear or aging. I dont know how long Absynthe lived in your closet, but she aged well ;-)

    The mesh cup lining is the finest mesh I have encountered. The stretch satin band is supple, soft, and retains its shape well. The wires are low under the arm and at the gore. And, consistent with @wendybien's recommendation, Absynthe has good center and immediate projection. This is a well-engineered bra.

    Without an extender, the cup was too shallow. Again, my 28" underbust needs a longer band. A bit of research has led me to believe I may have a slight omega-shaped breast. This explains why a longer band helps and why I require 5.5" wire width in addition to a narrow gore. Sigh. Chasing a narrow-enough-gore with closed, short, slightly narrow cups is like chasing rainbows--seemingly unending. This bra, despite the too wide gore, almost fits.

    Exceptional.

    I might get a slight "orange in a glass" effect with this. The flower lace doesn't like to lay flat so a cami or thick top would be best. The fabric is non-stretch. Very beautiful spring looking bra.

    Band runs tight as usual for Lejaby. Very pretty. Cups surprisingly large for the labeled size (more like a 28FF or 30F). Wires unusually low, too short for me, I need a little more containment-- but would be great if you have shallow underarm breast tissue that needs to be spared from poking. Comfortable to me though I only tried on and did not wear it.

    Apricot colorway

      Love4Pollinators the low wired Lejaby I was telling you about!

    • I think it may fit! I'm interested :-)

    • ok well do what you need to do (research, measure comparable bras etc.) and pm me if you're sure!
