This bra is so pretty! So pretty! Wearing it makes me feel like a model, and I'm discovering that I carry some of that confidence into my day even when I'm the only one who knows about my gorgeous underwear. If only it felt comfortable enough for all day I'd be completely delighted. As it is, there are some problems.
The cups on this bra are the right shape, size, and placement for me, so that's a good start. I wish the band were a little longer and more stretchy, though. I bought this 28D knowing that I'd need to add an extender -- ... a 30C would have fit me better, but they don't make that size. With the extender the fit is okay, but I still am working on fine-tuning it so I can be comfortable all day. The straps are a little on the short side, but I can work with that. The wires are very stiff -- the whole bra feels stiff -- and I am still figuring out whether sliding them in their channels helps, or whether I can bend them a wee bit to take some pressure off my sternum. When I take the bra off there are red marks in the various too-tight places, which I'm using to guide me in where to bend.
But -- so pretty! I'll have to update you next year about how this bra holds up under washing and wear, and whether I was ever able to make it feel good for more than occasional special uses. It looks well made at the start, and I'm very hopeful.
