Wow! Natori does it again https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> I think I just found my new fav bra!! This thing is amazingly comfortable and adorable! I LOVE the colors, the pink and lavender overlaying each other. Too cute. And it's like I'm not even wearing a bra! So lightweight.
This bra is like a jazzed up version of the Feathers. Same cut, same style, but THIS one has 3 rows of hooks....YAY!!!! That's always a major selling point for me. I just wish the band was a bit tighter, or that they made this in a 28G! But it's still def wearable. And I'm sure ...I will wear this one out by the end of the summer! Lol!! This is gonna be the perfect bra for those hot days to wear under a tank top. It gives such a nice rounded shape but without all that padding and bulkiness. I love that it's a plunge, too, very low-cut! My only gripe is the band being a bit too loose but that was expected. I'm def hanging onto this one, and highly recommend it https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> Read more 85 more words
Given the visual similarities to Natori Feathers Contour Plunge (730023) I thought the fit would also be great. However, the band on this bra is a layer of lace over a layer of mesh, which gives it a much firmer and tighter band.
On me, the extra pressure warped the molded cups so that they flattened along the underwire and billowed along the top. A 32DD probably would have fit better since my ideal size is closer to 30DD. (I'm just not ready to go directly to that snug of a band after spending 20 years wearing 34s!)
Luckily, an extender made the bra serviceable under scrubs; not sure I would wear it under anything fitted.
Another bra that I am keeping even though the fit is poor. The bras itself is lovely. The construction is similar to Feathers, with a smaller molded interior cup and a plunge lace overlay. The band seems firm and sized correctly. I can't really comment on the size of the cups because I don't understand American sizing or what this 32DDD would be equivalent to in UK sizing. I probably would have gone up a cup size if it had been available the day I bought it. The straps are fully adjustable.
This fits me the way pretty much all plunges do, which is horribly. I ...have extremely soft, FOB breasts and they basically just ooze out of the center as soon as I put it on. This is the case with literally every plunge that I have ever tried. But I will only use this maybe 4 times a year, with one dress that is very low cut and demands a plunge, so the fit is good enough. I expend my bra energy looking for a near perfect fit on my everyday bras, and am happy to accept "good enough" in these situations. Read more 89 more words
I really wanted to keep this one!! The lacey upper sling things are really nice, comfortably forming a tapered edge between the bra and the boobs. But unfortunately, on me the 32DDD was just slightly too small and made my larger left boob bulge out. And double-unfortunately, this bra doesn't come any bigger than a DDD in 32, or in a 30 or smaller band. :C
I normally would not buy a 32 band, but it was on sale for $9.97 at the clear the rack sale. The band runs almost a full size small, which is nice. The cups are very light and the lace overlay is slightly stretchy. I am going to alter the band smaller so it fits more like a 28E, but I really like this bra already. It is so comfortable! Gives a nice shape under shirts too. I wonder if this fits like the Natori Feathers Contour Plunge (730023)
Holy cleavage, batman! But really, I love the way that this bra fits my boobs. My tissue is pretty soft and is spread pretty wide, and this cup pulls it a little towards the center without distorting it, leaving a very nice shape. The construction is a little weird - the lined part of the cup is a bit smaller and is covered in slightly stretchy lace, and the lace provides a bit more coverage than the padded part. It's really hard to describe. But the stretchy lace is pretty awesome. It just has a little bit of give, enough to contour itself to the shape of your ...breast. I imagine if it was too big or small, there would be quadraboobage or gaping, but it sits flat on top of my larger and smaller breasts, which is a first!
A few downsides. The place where the straps and cups meet is irritating my skin. Right now, there is no way I can wear it a full day without rubbing that part of my skin raw. And the sides are just a little low so a little bit of tissue won't go in the cup. It is wide enough, just not tall enough. Currently trying to decide if I should keep it or not!

Low wires fit comfortably on shorter/smaller torsos, fabric texture and stretch make it pleasant to wear. The stretch lace overlay creates a smooth transition zone that minimizes the appearance of the cup edge, so that although the cups are slightly too small, the bra is close to invisible under clothing. The straps, band and cup lace are all fairly stretchy. Well supported.
Cons: Do not stock smaller bands than 32, nor cup sizes above DD at that range. If I could get this bra in a 30E it'd be spot on.
The band runs really small on this line; I couldn't close the supposed-30, so I had to go up one. I actually wound up with a pretty good fit; I can tell the band is not quite right, but it's comfortable for all-day wear. I wish the lacy overlay thingy didn't come as high or as wide, but it helps with the extra room I have at the top of the cup. It cuts into the pectoral muscle more than I'd prefer, but not badly enough as to be distracting.
