I love this bra. It is my absolute favourite bra I own.
The lace along the top edge of the cups makes a big difference, as it helps bring the cup in a bit closer to my full-on-bottom boobs, and also makes the cups a little bit taller, unlike some of the more recent Mimi Holliday super plunge models, which tend to put nipples on show unless you kinda tuck them away somehow!
I had this bra sitting in my drawer unused for a good year or two after I bought it, as I was convinced it was too narrow for my wide-set boobs. However, once ... I lengthened the straps a little and got well-practiced at the swoop & scoop method, I realised that it actually fits me perfectly, better than any other bra I've tried before or since.
With all the four Mimi bras that I now own, I have to be quite extreme in my swoop & scoop to avoid any tissue escaping to the sides, but provided I do this well, the bra fits very well and is incredibly comfortable.
The only slight downsides of this bra, for me, are:
- If I was to be really picky, there's a very tiny amount of overspill / pinching (visually, I can't feel it) at certain times of the month where the straps join the cups, I suspect the wires might be just a tiny fraction too narrow.
- The straps are part elastic and part satin. The non-stretch nature of the satin makes them inclined to fall off my shoulders very occasionally, if I'm having a day where I'm on the move a lot.
- The bra is made out of such a lovely delicate satin and lace combination that I know it'll eventually fall apart (I always wash it in a mesh laundry bag) and I won't be able to replace it!
