Got this from another bratabase user and was excited when it came in. I like most everything about this bra. The color and sheen is nice, the lace that looks pretty but is practical, i.e. smooth and invisible under shirts - just like the upper rim of the cups. The band runs tts and the straps don't slip. Nice shape, sublty sexy in every way. Very comfortable - excellent t-shirt bra. But. Too big in the cups for me. Not the bra's fault, but mine. Not visibly too big under a t-shirt, but I probably need a cup size (maybe two...?) less, although then there might have been depth issues. (Not nearly as shallow as other moulded bras I've tried though!) I've been struggling with my size recently (weight fluctuation, I'm growing tired of measuring and re-measuring), so am in doubt whether to re-list or hold on to it in case I can actually wear it someday.
I liked this bra quite a bit -- sexy, lacy, but it also *worked*. I would still love it, but since I've purchased it, I've lost a bit of weight and now the band size no longer fits me and these no longer feel comfortable. I'm here to try to share the love, and pass on a great and sturdy bra so I can re-invest in ones that are once again my size!
For reference I'm currently in between a 32F and 32FF in Cleo.
I got this in a 34E since I read Masquerade runs tight in the band, and I also read this bra runs a cup size big. However, this bra runs true to size in the band, and about half a cup size big. The band is too loose for me even on the tightest hooks, and the cups fit well since I'm in between sizes.
The cups fit well, but the tops curl out a bit. That's just how the bra is molded, they curl out even if it's not being worn. For this reason you can just barely see the outline of the tops of the cups in a tight tank top. This was not noticeable while wearing a dress with a gathered top, however.
I'll be selling this as it's just too big in the band, even on the tightest hooks.
This bra is the best fitting molded cup I have found. I have narrow breasts, so a lot of wires are too wide for me, but these hit in pretty much the right place. It's also nice and low under the arm and at the gore, wouldn't be a great fit if you have tall roots, but great for me.
I did find this bra ran very large in the cup, and pretty stretchy in the band. I tend to be most comfortable in a 36F/FF, but the 34F is what fit me best. I wear a 36F in my other Masquerade bras, including @Ardour and @Ilsa.
This bra is gorgeous, and gives me nice "soft hills" cleavage, with the tiniest bit of "cakes on a plate" cleavage as well. If a @Cleo Lily is a good fitting bra for you, you should try and find a Capella.
Wow. Narrow and projected. I'm impressed with the projection at the center gore.
Definitely runs roomy in cups.
It isn't projected immediately at the underwire at the bottom of the cup because the molded foam is curved downwards to be sewn into the underwire channel. Despite the underwires having to sit below the inframammary fold the bra is very supportive, it has a nice wide banded design under the cups.
I love the kind of cleavage it provides, very tasteful with slight separation.
The only minus for me so far is the top edge that wants to curl a little outwards. I might alter it but the bra is so beautiful I ...might just make do.
Speaking of looks, people say it has printed on lace but the lace pattern is actually a part of the top layer of fabric. It is literally part of the fabric, it isn't painted or printed on. It is rather smooth and minimally textured. The bra is stunning with its light taupe satin fabric, black lace center gore bow and silver metal detailing.
From a comfort standpoint the construction and materials are great. I love the fabric choice for the band, it's a double layer of that nice silky swimwear-material like synthetic fabric that Change Lingerie likes to use too. It's a pleasure next to the skin. The side wing is double-backed with fabric for extra sturdiness. Read more 119 more words
I wanted to love this bra. A molded, projected, nude with this beautiful applique on the bra. It is larger in the cup than most in the 38G category. And it fit everywhere but on top. Great center fullness, bottom fullness and side fullness. Not too wide. Not too talll. It also needs top fullness, which with my short root I lack. So I gape badly at the top of the cup. This would be a great bra for people who need all over fullness without having a short root. Just not for me.
I bought this bra because I heard it was similar to my beloved 30DD - Masquerade » Amor Sweetheart Moulded Bra (6766) . I don't find them too alike but the main similarity is that they're both simple enough to wear everyday but yet very pretty. The Capella especially is wonderful because it has a lace detail on the cups without any of the bumpiness that usually comes with lace. The champagne colour is a nice neutral so I end up wearing this bra when I have something sheer/ tight on and don't want to wear a boring nude t-shirt bra.
The strap fits like a loose 30 but I don't need to move to a tighter hook yet. The fabric feels great on and the straps covered in it are an added bonus. Another bra I wish came in more colours so I could own more than one!
Got this bra in the process of determining my size, an it was waay small in the cups.
The quality of the bra is remarcable - nice smooth fabric, nice finishings (no loose threads, etc.) I loved the design of the bra, it's very elegant and sexy. It's smooth uder the clothes, a real T-shirt bra.
This bra has a pretty tight band initially, but it stretched quite nicely to my underbust in a matter of weeks. There's no way I could fasten it on anything but the loosest band setting, so this bra could also fit a 28H person. Also note that as this is a 30G, the cups run at least one cup size large. I'm really more of a 30GG or 30H. To find your sizing in this bra, try going up a band size if you're not a tight-band wearer, and going down one to two cup sizes.
Other than the initial discomfort of the band, this bra is easily one ...of the most comfy bras I own. I've worn it to 8 hour shifts at work and not needed out immediately upon arriving home. I'm really more of an unpadded or lightly-lined type, so it's rare that I find a molded cup to be so livable.
This bra is also a great match for my full-on-bottom breasts. I find it to be a wonderful alternative to the Deco, which didn't work well for me. Anyone whose breasts don't take well to plunges but miss the cleavage of a Deco-ish bra (or any cleavage at all--it gets particularly hard to find in well-fitting larger cups) would do well to try this one. I was pining for a bra like this through a lot of my teenage years.
I found the faux-lace detailing and overall look of the bra appeared better to me online than it did in-person, which rarely happens. I'm really picky about lace patterning, and this particular one didn't jive with me. The bra's color is more of a pearlescent-metallic "nude" than the deeper metallic color than I was expecting. It's a really cool effect, but on me it's not a nude bra at all. Read more 196 more words
