It's a really pretty bra. My issues with it are that the straps are really far apart [I have broad shoulders], The lacey second layer doesn't sit flat which is annoying, the band I guess will be fine for a true 30 band [I couldn't say for sure] but obviously not great for a small 28 that I am. I have quite soft tissue and I don't like the shape it gives me, I think with firmer self-supporting breasts it'd look better [seen it on my friend who has these characteristics and is a 28G]. From the front it's quite sexy. Great for the bedroom or casual days at home but I wouldn't wear this out.
So happy with this bra! I was very hesitant to buy it because there is almost no information about the Midnight Grace Figleaves line on bratabase, blogs, or even the Figleaves own website. I'm very happy I took the risk.
First of all, this bra does run a little tight for a 30 band. This is a plus for me, as I prefer 28 bands in a lot of bras. The stretched band is just under 30 inches, which makes it smaller than 3/4 of my recent Ewa 30-band purchases and 2-5 inches smaller, stretched, than 30-band Freya bras I've tried. If you like a looser 30, this is ...something to keep in mind.
The wires on this bra are narrow, very close in width to my Ewa bras, which was another plus for me.
Cups run true to size, and construction seems to be of good quality. Under a shirt, my breasts have a nice shape - lifted but not too out there, and somewhere between Freya and Cleo bras in terms of roudedness.
One thing of note is that the top layer of lace does not sit flat against the cups at all areas. It's only attached at one part. Therefore, the profile view of this bra makes it look super-pointy and/or like the bra doesn't fit properly. This is just the overlaying lace. If you put a shirt over the bra, none of this is visible.
I would definitely buy this or another Midnight Grace bra in the future. Read more 139 more words
