What I like: - it's a great, basic, t-shirt bra, gives a nice shape and looks good under shirts. - it's comfortable (the cups fit me well, nothing digs in or pokes where it shouldn't - I got it in a cute burgundy color.
What I don't like: - the cup is very full-coverage, which is not my first choice.
85% nylon, 15% spandex. That's not that different from most other bras, right? I mean, the tag does make sure to point out that it's Tactel® Nylon and Lycra® Spandex, but we all know that brand names don't usually mean anything. I look at the rest of the tag: the band is made from nylon, rayon, and spandex, and the cup linings are also nylon and spandex. None of this seems out of the ordinary to me. So how on earth does this bra feel so amazing?
When the fitter put it on me, she said "this bra feels like butter". Not quite, but very very close. After a ...few minutes it's harder to remember, but every time I put it on I'm surprised by how soft and how smooth this bra feels against my skin, not to mention how cute it is. A pretty blue with cyan and blue lace on the straps, and a tiny gold medallion on the gore, this bra makes me feel like a mermaid. The matching boyshorts feel amazing as well, made of those same nylon and spandex brands, with lace at the top and around the leg holes - the lace is mildly uncomfortable, but beautiful.
As to the fit of the bra, it's not the slightest bit uncomfortable. It is in my sister size of 32D, but I'm wearing it on the loosest hook and everything is staying where it ought to be. When I slouch, the cups come forward the tiniest bit right above the gore, but the top stays mostly in place, and I shouldn't be slouching anyway!
This bra hides nicely under all my t-shirts, but doesn't do too much for maximizing cleavage - it's lightly padded all over the cup. A good everyday bra that's also something sexy. I probably wouldn't get another one, though, unless it was cheaper - at $70 it was in the middle of the price range of the bras the fitter brought me. It's a wonderful bra, though, and I look forward to some quality time with it. Read more 235 more words
This seems like it could be a pretty good fit, but I received it in awful condition. The cups are pretty warped and wrinkled and won't sit right, and the top edge is curling up. Probably machine dried and not a testament to the bra's quality. I guess this one goes on my wishlist.
Super thin molded cups, it reminds me of Wacoal's Embrace Lace but for a different shape.
I have two other Natori bras that are comfortable that I like quite a bit (the lynx and the geo icon contour varieties), but this one has underwires that are too narrow for me - they cut into my breast tissue on the side and are uncomfortable; I'm guessing that the wires are wider on the other Natori models that I wear, because I don't have that issue with them. Also I'm popping out a little bit on the top on my larger side in this bra, so I'm probably a 32E rather than 32DD. It's too bad, because the fabric on this bra is so dreamy and soft; it's very smooth, and the straps have a nice lace detail. If you have more narrow-set breasts, I recommend trying it.
Very comfortable. This is my go-to, everyday bra. Creates a nice, smooth line under thin fabrics. I can get by with either a D or a DD cup in this bra style, but prefer the DD when I'm a few pounds heavier and the D when my weight is a bit lower.
The band on this does stretch quite a bit, so I'd be interested to try a larger cup size on a 30 band in this style. An older version of this bra that I had developed an issue with the material at the top of the cups rolling outwards after numerous washings, due to the padding ...not really being stitched to the covering material at the top of the cups. They seem to have fixed this issue now with a small, smooth seam at the top of the cup. (You have to look at the inside of the cup to see it, as it is invisible from the front.)
It's not the most exciting, romantic bra in the world, but it is great for discreet, comfortable support that you can wear all day. Read more 76 more words
I wish this bra fit me well actually before I knew I was putting on bras wrong --not using the scoop and swoop method-- I thought it did fit me! Then I scooped and swooped and sure enough there was the quadboob in full effect, while there still being spillage over the sides of the bra. Oops. The material of this bra is really soft and comfortable. A little too comfortable, in that I have to use the tightest closure on the band pretty much, for a snug fit. But I like the material. I would definitely like to try this same model in a 32DDD or 32G or something, if they make it.
This is a very comfortable bra wish I could find it with a 30 band because it feels most comfortable on the tightest band. I'm lactating so the sometimes the cups fit well and sometimes they are a little bit loose but nothing noticeable. The underwires are comfortable/wide enough for me and don't press on any breast tissue. This bra gives a nice shape. I like wearing it under smooth tops.
The straps are a little long though (I'm petite and have adjusted it to the shortest setting and hope that they don't stretch out too quickly). The shoulder straps have regular elastic straps underneath and are just covered with lace over a portion of the straps.
