I love a lot of things about this bra. It is made from gorgeous fabrics and has great hardware. The blue is deep and silky. It fit well when I was wearing a 38e. It has nice narrow and low cups which I have a hard time finding. (I wore it when I was smaller, and so my fit comments are for a 40f wearing a 38e bra.)
Breast shape: more conical than I'm used to Fabric: a little scratchy Shoulder strap: not a lot of give since it's only partially elastic. I definitely feel it more than I do other straps Underwires: definitely cases me in. They feel a bit narrower than I'm used to. Cup depth: Right cup just fits, or maybe could use a bit more projection even. The left cup definitely needs a cup-sized insert. Even with a half-cup insert, the cup doesn't fill out.

I love the look of this bra and the shape it gives me - very rounded from the side. I am FOT (and FOB - even), for sure, and i find that the tops of these cups are VERY roomy. When I am not standing up perfectly straight, there is some looseness there (not enough to affect how it looks under clothes or anything. it's not even really noticeable except from my top down view). I tried on a 34GG and it was quad boob all over the place, so this is definitely the right cup size for me.
I do love how it keeps my boobs closer to ...my body on the sides. Very little east-west action, so it's great, in that respect. Wire width is absolutely perfect, cup depth is perfect.
The band rides up on this one a bit and the wires don't sit up in my inframammary fold like they should. I need to try a 32H to see if that helps things, but this band may just not be thick enough (it is only 2 hooks) to offer the support i need for my very high set boobs.
Assuming the 32H fixed that, my only other complaint about this one is the lace edging on the straps...the way it's sewn, it feels very rough on the underside of the strap that sits on my shoulders. I think that, because the band is not doing as much work as it should in this size, there is more weight on that rough surface pressing against my skin than there should be. These straps are also very wide-set and stick out of anything sleeveless. I'd be more than willing to forgive that, if the support were better. Read more 178 more words
I like this bra quite a bit. The wires are medium width and almost perfect for me. The center gore is nicely narrow and the cups allow for quite some volume towards the center, which I need and haven't found in too many bras. However, I have very full-on-top boobs and that means even though the cups fit, they cut in a little. The shape it gives me is also a little pointed, but that might well be because the top section is too constricting for me.
This is a tricky one! It's a lovely bra with a unique design. The satin band is comfortable and firm. I'd say the cups run true to size, but they aren't very compatible with my wide, shallow shape. They cut into my tissue at the sides but I don't completely fill out the cups.
I never really thought of myself as a full on top boob person, but as it turns out I have a bit of top tissue that doesn't quite work with this bra. I found the upper panel flattened the top of my boobs in a weird way.
This bra fit pretty well otherwise. I just didn't like the shape.
