This is s cute bra with a vintage look. The satin fabric and the lace are beautiful and the quality is excellent. For me, the shape of the cups was too projected leading to loose fabric in the cup. I read somewhere that this bra would work for shallow wide rooted breasts, but for me the wires sat on my breasts. The cups are very projected, in a vintage way, which gives a very different look under clothing, but this is not very practical for everyday use. Even though the bra didn't fit me it did feel quite comfortable.
I bought this bra because it was gorgeous and I wanted to own at least one "sexy" bra. Believe it or not this bra is AMAZINGLY comfortable. It surprised me because it really looks like a just-for-show bra. But NO! It's very soft, the lace is supremely non-irritating, and it feels like a gentle hug on your bosom. The cut is extremely flattering and easy to fit into because the stretch lace accommodates asymmetry well.
I'm very impressed with Miss Mandalay, I've also tried a lot of their bikini tops and they are very well made and fit the best out of all the bra-sized swimwear I've tried on. I think Miss Mandalay is becoming one of my favorite brands. I just wish they made 28 bands. However, this band feels fairly tight for a 30 band, so I can probably get away with wearing their 30 bands just fine.
Short roots, functionally full on bottom , very center full Gore is always a problem for me since I have touching breasts. Got this in the ultra violet which is a gorgeous very saturated color. The side slings are in a satin and are not attached to the lace cup towards the center. I think band is comparable in size to a Cleo. This bra has really good immediate projection and is quite good for for my center fullness. Wires barely on my breast tissue and not uncomfortable. Stayed in my IMF pretty well.
I quad in my larger breast, so ...I think I need one cup size up . I think in one cup larger wires would probably be outside my breast tissue. Unfortunately it doesn't come in a larger cup size in a 28. The 28 band is good on me and so debating whether to even try a 30GG. Measurements on this site for a 30GG seem a little off to me. Can hardly believe the 5" wires on this size jump up from 5 to 5.8 and I think based on these measurements the band in a 30 would be too big.
Amelie, why are you so raved about? I don't understand. You're not very supportive, you're even more stretchy than Andorra. I'd agree you're soft and pretty and that you do give me a very natural breast shape that actually do look very nice. And I agree you do give me comfort, and I do think your wires are stable.
I do agree that I absolutely love your high wires and wings, no doubt. But why would you on that perfect construction of yours only have 2 hooks?! Why do you have to have so thin straps? Why do I get the feeling you're more of a fashion ...statement than an actual bra?
The sad thing is I would probably even say you fit me, apart from the fact that my boobs does push your gore out of course. But fit isn't really that important. The only thing that matters is comfort and performance. After all you're supposed to be a bra and not a fashion statement.
Compared to my Andorra you do have better wires and wings. But compared to Andorra fabric and top lace, you're lace is very unsupportive. Also your lace curls on top of the bottom section even when you fit. You are so strange to me. Read more 104 more words
Aesthetically, this bra is fantastic. I looove that they made a design element of the supportive side panel by making it a contrasting color of satin. Plus, the lace which makes up the bulk of the cups, in addition to being very pretty, has a gentle amount of stretch which helps with fit. It seems extremely well-made and the fabrics are wonderful to touch, so points all around there! Also, the bra is very comfortable, due in part to the really narrow wires - this bra I think has the narrowest wires I've ever tried, form a ...full U shape rather than a wider crescent. The end effect of this is that even though it offers a lot of coverage, it does not cut into my armpits (unlike SOME BRAS [read: most bras])
My main issue with this bra, despite all these pros, is the shape it creates. Not sure if it's because I'm naturally on the pointy side, or if that's just the way it's supposed to be, but the look is very torpedo-shaped, like a retro pin-up girl. Some people may like this look, but it's definitely not for me. So, despite all its nice points, I'll be putting this one up for sale. Read more 112 more words
