Adorable bra. Fits a little low but good front projection. Has a bit of a minimizing effect, which I love. Worth it for how cute it is. I love that it isn't in my armpits like a lot of bras are. Any fit issues are probably because it's a 34g instead of a 32gg. Band has lost its shape fairly quickly but I'll just sew it in so I can keep wearing it. Overall a super comfortable bra that I use a lot.
This bra has notoriously weird sizing, and runs extremely large in the cups. I bought & returned 3 other sizes before arriving at this one, which fits fine in the cups but is a way large in the band. I would do better with a 34FF/32G, but I'm kinda worn out now https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" /> Anyway, it was worth stalking because it's very pretty AND very practical. The molded cup, lace print and beige-y gold color don't show under almost anything. I got the matching thong and it's a beautiful set. It's very comfortable, too. Only 2 hooks. Update: I am going to frankenbra it by having the cups/front section sewn onto the back band of a spare strapless I have. Crossing fingers. Update #2: Frankenbra complete. Genius. Support for days, convertible straps in the back, 4 hooks, reduced armpit and back fat. Damn, I'm good! Well, my sister in-law the seamstress is.
The Masquerade Capella is a very nice looking bra but for me the fit is quite odd. The band is comfortable in fabric and fit. I usually have an under bust measurement of around 70-72cm and this was a good fit for me, although I must note that I do not like to wear tight bands. The straps are fairly comfortable due to the satin-like fabric but they are quite thin and not as supportive as I need them to be - an issue exacerbated by them being too wide set for my frame. The wires are too wide for my liking and they poke at their outer edges. I don't ...think that the wires are necessarily too long but rather that they end in an uncomfortable place on my ribcage which is probably in part due to their width. The centre gore is too high and too separate which causes the wires to sit on breast tissue. The wires also dig in at the sternum but this is a problem I experience in almost all bras including my best fitting, Ewa Michalak bras. The cups are too tall, too wide, too separate and too shallow on the bottom for me. The middle of the cup has a surprising amount of depth and the top is quite open. I didn't experience "gaping" as such but because the cups were too tall, the top of the cup was not optimally filled out. Downsizing in the cup would most likely not work due to the shallowness at the base at the cup so unfortunately this bra is just incompatible with me. I think it would work for someone who is full on top and around the middle & not particularly high set (at least not in the larger cup sizes). Masquerade make bras that match my taste very well but the more Masquerade bras I try, the more I am disappointed. Now that I have some well-fitting bras, thanks to Ewa Michalak, I am able to more easily identify fit problems with other brands. I constantly find that cups are too tall, too shallow and often too wide, so I am losing confidence in many brands, including Masquerade https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />
A pretty bra, and doesn't show under most tops despite the delicate black detailing. The shape is natural and rounded, and coverage is a little higher and with less cleavage than my usual Freya Deco (4234). At the time I bought it the store owner didn't have a 28G and also advised me that Masquerade ran smaller in the band than Freya and encouraged me to take the 30FF. It was fine for the first few wears but the band stretched out after while and I now don't wear the bra as I find the band is too loose and rides up. I have found this with all of the Masquerade bras I own - the bands and straps on their bras seem to be a bit softer and stretch out - probably because they are often made out of glamorous satiny materials. I like the bra, if I were to buy it again I would definitely go for a 28 band.
This is a beautiful bra, I absolutely love the smooth shape it gives under clothing without adding too much padding.
When I first bought it the band was quite tight and I went up to a 32DD from my Freya/Fantasie bra size of 30E. Three months later, the band now feels loose. I wonder if I should have stayed in my ordinary size and used an extender as I am now wearing it on the tightest hooks and I feel I could use a slightly larger cup? At any rate, it is a beautiful bra and quite comfortable. I just don't think it will last that long due ...to the rapid 'stretching out' of the band.
Although I love this bra, it is definitely not a perfect fit, nor is it the most supportive bra I own. I would say it would work for women on the smaller end of the 'large cup' spectrum such as myself, but not for women with larger, heavier breasts. I also don't think it is a bra that will last for a long time. Read more 74 more words
I wear this bra a lot. Good points include the colour and material which is a much nicer alternative to a lot of other "nude" bras. The top of the cups doesn't quite match up with my breasts, but under clothes it is fine. I think this is because of the way the satin folds over the top edge instead of finishing with a trim like a lot of other bras do, any slight gap is more noticeable. I love the fabric and design of this bra, it feels luxurious. Even though it doesn't fit properly any more I still find myself reaching for it when I need a nude type bra.
The cups are super deep on this bra! It's such a shame it fit so horribly because it really is so beautiful. It would fit someone with more depth to their boobs. I have a shallower base, wide rooted so even though it cut in at the top a bit, there was a ton of room left in the cup. It made my 36G Rhea look tiny! The wire width was the same in both cups yet the actual cup depth looked at least 2 sizes bigger in the Capella than my Rhea. I am exchanging this bra, measured it for Bratabase.
It's a lovely bra, and fit okay on the tightest hook, until I broke it in, and it stretched out. (I normally wear a 28f, but this was supposed to run snug in the band, and the 30e was on sale).
I like that the straps are thin- unlike all of my 28 band bras. It's a good option for molded cup bras- the underwires are narrower than Panache's porcelain, and it may work for people who find the deco doesn't work.
The shape that this one gives me is a little more pointed and lower on my chest than I prefer.
I'll have to see how it does once I alter the band.
The band on this bra is a little long, but I couldn't find it in a 30 so I'll just have to alter it. The satin is very pretty, and the black 'lace' is printed on, so doesn't show through clothes (it would if you were wearing white, though, since it's black). The straps are partially lined with satin, so they are not fully adjustable. I can shorten them to the correct length, though, which is something that I sometimes have problems with. The bra cups are molded, but the front of the cups has 3 darts for shaping, which is something I've never seen on a bra before but looks really pretty. The molding is not very thick, so it does hide nipples but won't add bulk.
