This is a really gorgeous bra that I got from Wendybien. Lots of really nice detail even on the back of the band where it hooks.
I am narrow, short rooted with touching breasts and have a lot of center projection. The gore is a little too wide and tall for me. The wires sit on both breasts. However they are softer and more padded than the cleo wires and so don't bother me as much. There seems to be enough immediate projection, but perhaps not enough center projection. (I'm not quite sure on that). The 2 Empreinte bras I've tried seem to be ...better on center projection, at least the gores on them come closer to tacking even when they are as tall as this gore. The 8" high cup is a little too tall. I barely fill the upper half of the cup. The straps do not fully adjust. Right now they are shortened all the way. I'm only 5'1" and short waisted . The portion of the strap that is not adjustable is very firm and that is nice. Makes the bra feel very secure. I don't know if in time I might have to shorten the adjustable portion . I think the band is small for a 30. It fits like a 30 Cleo, but smaller than a Freya 30 band. The shape this bra gives is slightly more pointed than the round shape of a Cleo and also a little understated. Lift isn't quite as good. Maybe the cup is a little big on me??
I love this bra. It reminds me a bit of the SM Ewa that I tried as far as the shape it gives me but it fits me better. The cups are narrower and I get better lift. The embroidery lays flat under my t-shirt. I love the detailing... I'll probably take off the rosette on the gore but just because I don't usually love stuff tacked on the gore... But pretty much every bra comes that way. I do love the additions to the band. And the scallops where the cups attach to the band and at the top of the cup. ... I like how there is a ribbon added underneath them for stability but not elastic to close off the top of the cup. It does fit large imo for a 30E but I compare all other bras to Cleo unlined bras because they been the most consistent in sizing for me and I've tried a dozen of them probably. I have a little issue with the strap cutting in at the armpit if I'm moving around a lot Read more 82 more words
I'm basically just an fool in love when it comes to Lejaby. I KNOW the cups (apart from a few select models) run huge in the Elixir full bust collection and the band runs supertight. Yet I still bought this. Predictably it is too snug in the band and too big in the cup. Sigh. It's beautiful though!
I loved the colour and design of this gorgeous bra so much that I ordered it in a size larger hoping it might fit. Well, it didn't. Melusine fits pretty deep, larger than expected for its cup size, but wires narrow. I'd say it fits almost like a large UK 30F or even a 30FF. Band excellent quality elastic and TTS. The design reminds me of Fauve Chloe balcony, but with softer wires. I just love love love this bra and will have it in a smaller size, so help me God!
An absolutely gorgeous bra from Lejaby. This is the full cup style of the Melusine model and fits like a large 30E or small 30F I guess. It is a touch too roomy in the cups, which are narrow and deep. Lovely colour and detailing, light blue mesh with a solid soft but firm band. Love love love Lejaby and will seek out this bra's sisters.
The most comfortable bra I own. Never digs, pokes or pinches and doesn't require adjustments, even after 12+hrs wear. Good lift & support and gives a nice, natural shape (not too round or pointy). And it's sheer! The only downside is that being a full cup with close set cups, it comes up too high to wear with a v-neck shirt.
Edited: Finally learned how a bra is actually supposed to fit and the band is too big and the underwires only cover half my boob on the side . It feels fine but gives no support - thus the back issues I've experienced! I should be in a 32 but it looks like Elixir only goes up to a G cup, which makes me sad because they really do make the most comfortable bras!
