I so wanted a vertically seamed balconette, and this bra is a stunning aesthetic example of one. It features lovely, scroll-patterned lace in an understated neutral shade and a darling tear drop pearl bauble detail at the gore.
I have the vanilla color, it's a lovely ivory-cream-oatmeal shade, and since I'm quite pale it works as a nude under light clothing. Although the lace does show a bit under thin tops, it doesn't bother me.
It runs so tight in the band and small/shallow in the cup that I'd definitely advise going up a band and cup size. I wear it with an extender, which solves the tourniquet band, but there's spillage at the top of the cup and I find myself frequently adjusting during the day. Despite this, the shape it gives me is lovely and round. If it had fit me better, I could see it being a favorite bra.
Well made, beautiful bra. I wish it had fit better, or came in larger cup sizes.
This bra is not owned any more
