My shape: slightly shallow teardrop/FOB with super wide/tall roots and very close-set tissue in the middle.
This review is for the purple orchid colorway.
This is a beautiful bra, and probably the closest I will ever get to a full-coverage dealy. It's super comfortable, and since I got it to be full-coverage (i.e. worn under tops where it wouldn't show anyway), I went ahead and got the bright purple, which is gorgeous, by the way. It has 3 sets of hooks!
These cups are almost exactly my shape! It's nice because they don't cut in on top but they also don't gape, which is a very tricky balance to strike for me. There is a slight bit of empty space in the bottom, but the wires are so flexible they don't shift much.
Overall: Incredibly pleased with this bra, and really glad now that I caved and got it.
I got the matching shorts too, since they were on sale. Super cute, super soft, and gloriously PURPLE! Read more 142 more words
The bra is discontinued but I saw plenty left at Nordstrom Rack. The measurements made it seem perfect for me but unfortunately I don't think the underwire is wide enough given my breasts are separated. I also have a shallow, short roots so I found I couldn't quite fill up the top. The band is fairly stretchy; I'm sure I would be fine with a 30 band given I'm 28.5" underbust.
I have 3 of these bras and find them to be comfortable for everyday wear. The nude doesn't show under a thin t shirt. I also like that there aren't ribbons/flowers at the gore, just the little gold coin thingy you can cut off if you want. 32DDD used to fit but is too small now. When it fit, worked well for FOB (no gaping at the top). The wires could be a little longer and hold in sideboob but not very bad as is.
Just starting on with properly sized bras, but so far this is my favorite! I got it to be an every day bra that will work under most of my work shirts/t-shirts, and this is perfect for that. The subtle pattern gives it a little elegance but doesn't show through, and the padding is just enough for modesty. I can't comment yet on durability/stretchiness, but I'll update after time.
These seems pretty perfect of my natural shape, which is projected, slightly full on bottom, with tall shallow roots. My breasts are a little conical so unlined bras have too little shaping; this rounded them out nicely. My breasts are ...also fairly close-set, but the gore on this is so low it's not an issue. I think my roots are pretty average, not particularly wide or narrow, and the wires seem to extend far enough without poking.
For overall look, I have to say nothing amazing is happening. My breasts are supported and look full and natural, but they're more pinned to the side than anything else, so no stunning cleavage. That's fine, though, because cleavage is not what I was looking for in this one.
Overall, a great low-profile, comfortable every day bra. Read more 92 more words
Gore is slightly too wide at the top for me, and the wires were just the tiniest bit too narrow. Definitely quadboobing a bit out of the top as well. The band stays in place only when fastened on the tightest hook. I should be in a 30 band (if they made one), but I wouldn't want to try it due to the fact that the elastic along the bottom of the band is really flimsy. It tends to fold over on itself, and even on the loosest hook it leaves a very deep welt in my skin around my sides. I can't imagine this bra would have a very long lifespan.
Full coverage, nice shape, good support. Band started stretching pretty soon after purchase. Now (2 yrs from purchase) it's pretty well-stretched and I'm going to tighten the band to get more life from it. Paid $60 new.
It's comfortable. It's not itchy, doesn't pinch or poke, and I can jump around like an idiot without my boobs falling out. After a full day of wearing it, I'm not in a rush to get it off. Under t-shirts, it's invisible, so it's a great every day bra. It's not very pretty, but it does it's job.
