A friend with similar boobs would be: wide-set, average projection, mostly even but a little full on bottom.
I measure as a 34FF/32G. I was a little skeptical about buying a 34G, as well as about the depth (it measures about 10.8" which I thought was a lot). However, this bra fits me really well!
The shape is more like a demi or half-cup. There is an average amount of projection (I feel). The wires do not poke, and they don't come too far back. They're the perfect length. While the bra itself is designed to be open, there is a little bit of cleavage, but there is still ...a smooth line from breast to bra, and there's no quadboob after I scoop+swoop. My breasts are comfortably enclosed on each side.
I was warned that the straps were wider than most bras. This is actually good for my frame. Being taller and having more broad shoulders, I find that the straps are perfectly distanced. They don't dig in like some of my other bras that have narrower straps (this is not to say that the other bras are unsupportive. I just have a little fat pad on my shoulders I guess).
The band is small for a 34, which I don't think is necessarily a bad thing. It feels supportive and sturdy. It's not going anywhere. It'll have a longer wearable lifetime.
I love that it only has 2 hooks. Can't stand 3-hooked bras when they're so hard for me to undo.
The design is BOOTIFUHL. I love bras that have lots of colors and designs. The lace is a nice touch, although it sticks out a little bit. It can be hard to smooth down. That's a minor thing.
Definitely one of my favorites. I absolutely love it.
Short, projected, omega shaped, close set, center full breasts....
This is yet another of a 200+ list of bras with a too-wide gore, top and bottom. The cup volume felt great, but my shorties rested comfortably below the lace. It doesn't effect the fit, but the appearance is unappealing.
The pattern is colorful and fun, the cups lined in cotton, the straps substantial and supportive, and the fabric smooth.
Lightly-padded 2-part half-cup style bra in a 2-tone speckled mint (pale aqua) background print with an allover graphic/floral/botanical design mostly in saturated blues, pinks, yellows, and leafy greens. Approximately 1" wide mint lace edging on tops of cups in a diagonal mesh with wheeled circles on the very edge. Mint bow with deep pink rose in center. Straps are partially adjustable in the back only. The fronts of straps are padded and have the same print fabric as the cups. The width on the padded portion of the straps is about 0.5" at the cup attachment and widens to about 0.8" at the shoulder.
Have worn it once. It ...doesn't really fit. I am sad. It is gorgeous and I want to keep it so bad, but I won't.
CUP DEPTH: Seems okay, but does push up my boob at an angle because the apex is too high for me. Actual depth is slightly too small for my boobs. CUP WIDTH: At rest is to narrow for me. Can sc/swoop to fill. CUP HEIGHT: Too tall for me, of course. I fill the cup, but the lace on top flies in any breeze. Would fit a rounder shape much better. WIRES: Seem fine and sturdy. GORE: Low enough I love it. Doesn't dig in on me at all. WINGS: Fine for me. STRAPS: Too wideset for me. They do this weird rolling thing because they're trying to stay on my shoulders. I kind of love the padded portions of the straps, but because they're being pulled in weird directions due to my narrower frame/shoulder width, they are not working for me in this size. BAND: Sturdy. Slightly too tight for me. Does not seem as stretchy as most. AESTHETICS: Absolutely gorgeous. It's an unusual color and print. I so wish I could keep this.
OVERALL: Love love LOVE. Cannot keep it. Does not work with my shape and frame.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Update: I've lost much weight since I first got this bra, so the pictures are from somewhere in the middle. Initially, the bra fit much better and was only really flappy on top where the lace is. Now it's just silly big.
Very obviously too wide and shallow for me now. Before, the cup depth was not enough, but my boobs squashed sideways and up enough to "fill" out the fabric parts of the cups. The fit is even looser on me since the pictures.
I really do want this in my actual size, but I think the shape will not fit me. I currently have another Masquerade half-cup (cakes to me) that almost fits in a 34F, but I want in a 32FF. Maybe I can try this one in that size, too. Read more 341 more words
I love, love, love this bra. So much so, I bought two in different colors! Harlequin makes such adorable bras, I've bought four already and intend to get more if I can. It's very comfortable and makes a very lovely shape underneath any of my shirts.
The Pandora model has lace along the balconette cups, which is very lovely!
