This was another shot-in-the-dark Brastop US order.
The Nessa Angela is a beige bra with black and pink accents. What drew me in on this one is the black band and straps combined with that beige and pink. It’s pretty but also somewhat ordinary.
The quality is pretty good, it’s on point for Nessa. The embroidery is beautiful.
Comfort-wise, I think the 80 band is a better and more comfortable fit than the 75 (note: I have visible bruising/scabbing from my 75M - Nessa » Simone Soft cutting into my skin in the front between my breasts from the last time I wore it...I literally wore ...a sock under the band of the bra I wore today to work because I’m trying to let it heal but I’m not comfortable enough to go braless for work). The cups are larger and are fairly comfortable as well.
My fit for this bra is what’s got me so on the fence. It seems like it might have enough projection, but then there’s wrinkles towards the center of the cup. The gore tacks. The top of the cups wrinkle, like the bra is just a tad too tall so I can’t fill it out. It’s more of a fuller coverage than my Simone, which is fine, but I’m just not sure about the wrinkling. Granted, I have wrinkling at the top of my 75K - Kris Line » Scheherazade Soft (L1105) and I kept it and it’s not noticeable. I’m pretty sure I’m going to keep this one, but I think if I go with Nessa again, I’m going to go with an 80L. I think that’s going to be my “best fit” in this brand (at least when I feel like looking sexy with my boobs popping up like a push-up bra).
UPDATE 1: this bra creaks so much! Hoping it will settle down a bit after more use. Honestly, I think this is my best fitting bra of the bunch. While I said that I would try 80L for my next Nessa bra on my initial review, I ended up ordering a Nessa Koral in an 80M like this one. Hopefully the fit is similar, otherwise I guess Nessa might have scaling issues! Read more 267 more words
Purchased this from zathiya's closing sale. Only tried on and it never fit. Straps are thick and softly lined. Pretty bra. Too east/west but that definitely isn't helped by the band being too tight and the wires were already too wide to begin with.
Just wow, I adore the design of this bra! Really wish it was closer in fit to my shape. It gives me the typical shape that I always get with Ewa Michalak, Nessa and Curvy Kate (a sort of d shape haha) It fit perfectly on one breast, but the other had quite some space in the bottom, which I was told would mean I should go a cup size down (but perhaps in retrospect maybe that breast is smaller yet more projected?) I sadly did not think of going down a band size while keeping my cup size (a 75J). I really liked it but didn’t think the shape was that good on me, but then again I’m used to full coverage Primadonna bras...
what a stunning bra. The lace looks very pretty from afar. Up close it's a bit meh but who is looking that close and cares anyway lol
The band is a true 34. It barely stretches further. So it's very TTS. The gore height is nice, it's not as high as Panache etc, but not low like a plunge so I feel secure. It hits me nicely just before my my boob-distance becomes tiny so that's a plus. It also has about 1cm worth of "empty" wire channels just at the top of the gore, at first I thought it didn't tack but it's just that the wires end ...a little lower than the actual fabric part of the gore, if that makes sense? I don't mind, it doesn't seem to affect the fit.
It gives me great uplifted shape. But because it's not stretch lace I do quad ever so slightly when I breathe in, but I'm sure I can manage.
The fabric is soft on the inside and on the back/sides, the cups are lined with a sort of soft tulle fabric. The top lace part isn't lined so it's not soft. It could be scratchy to some I suppose if you are sensitive. It has side boning but it's pretty soft.
The wires does creak when moving, hopefully won't be super noticeable. It's fairly comfortable overall, I just wish it either had stretch lace or that I got it in a 34JJ (and risk it being too big).
Edit: On second though I've decided to return this and possibly order it in a 36J instead as I feel the snug band and slightly small cup of the 34J might irritate me during long work days. Read more 176 more words
This is a really well made bra and is a lot cuter in person than the pictures show. The embroidery is beautiful! I ordered it from Tina at Aphrodite's Closet in Texas. She is super nice, quick to reply, and very knowledgable about Polish brands. As far as fit, I had to take in the straps and the elastic along the armpit edge. These are a lot wider set even than Ewa Michalak bras. After the surgery, however, it fits me a lot better. There isn't stretch lace on this model, so I was worried it wouldn't lay flat along the top edge. I was pleasantly surprised when it did. The wires aren't as U-shaped as other Polish brands. Overall, this is a nice Polish brand, but I prefer Ewa Michalak.
This is a very, very pretty bra. The quality is top notch and the materials are very soft. It's very light, but very supportive. 3 sets of 3 hooks on a band that's pretty TTS - I.e. just a little looser than a Ewa M. 65.
The wires are more narrow than a UK bra, but definately not as narrow as an EM...you can see that in this size, I have more than 1.5 cm extending empty out towards my armpit.
The cups are projected and I get very little wrinkling at the bottom...however, I get wrinkling at the top of the cup, so it's too big.
I doubt that a G cup would fit me. If I go down a size to fill the top of the cup, I won't have enough depth.
Back it goes (I'll add measurements to Db though. I also have size 65I in hand)
