  1. Shades Of Grey Bra (PRRESGIN)

    36N

    Hasn't set fit

    Absolutely love this bra. So comfortable as it totally wire free!

    It's impossible to provide the measurements because Optifit bras are custom made to your individual measurement. Plus the company doesn't use traditional "2D" measurements. So you can't just go online and order a 36N or 32KK etc. The Optifit bra is based on 3 measurements taken with a patented elastic strap (the optimeasure) using colour, letter and number combinations to define frame, depth and volume. There are 8 colours for the frame, 3 heights (short, medium and long) and 1 to 21 measurements for projection/volume allowing for potentially 504 sizes for the whole range ( red S ... 1 to Turquoise L21). So, for example, a woman who is normally a 32DD might find herself wearing an Optifit bra that is a Red, Small, 4.

    The Optifit bra fits in a different way to conventional bras. It sit low on the waist line at the back rather than below your shoulder blades. Immediately I could feel my back supporting my breasts instead of my head, neck and shoulders. My whole posture changed as a result! I can definitely tell that the Optifit bra redistributed the breast weight of my breasts to my core because I don't experience the neck and shoulder pain and strain on my upper body. Also, the Optifit bra has totally eliminated the bulges of back fat above and below the back band, because the back band is worn much lower down compared to other bras.

    The Optifit bra contains no wire yet gives great seperation. The shape under clothes is therefore rather perky because the Optifit bra doesn’t allow your breasts to flop down or to the sides. It makes your boobs project forward. So there’s no chance double boob or side boob!

    Can't recommend this bra enough. I think because it's so different to other bras you really have to experience wearing it to understand just how comfortable it is and how incredibly different it is to other 'off the rack' bras.

    Also REALLY pleased with the price. I was a little apprehensive to contact Optifit with my original enquiry as I thought they'd be very expensive, but it was only £59.99 plus P&P which I think is very reasonable. Many women I know who are above a K cup needed to spend around £200 to obtain a custom fit bra!

    The fabric in the 'shades of grey' style is lovely. Although its lace fabric on top it creates a smooth line under t-shirts etc. The top half of the Bra is sheer with a lace overlay, which makes the full cup look a little less huge and clumsy.

    As I am particularly big busted, I opted for padded shoulders on the strap to prevent the straps digging in and leaving impressions. Optifit did this for me with no additional charge too which I think is great.

      It doesnt look like there is any separation between your breasts? This is a big reason I stopped wearing the unstructured bras I used to wear - I always had a rash in my cleavage if they touch

      I am curious how this even works. How does this stay in position? My underbust measurement is the narrowest part of my torso, something like this seems like it would just slide upwards.

    • Are you able to post more or different pictures? I wonder if there might be some confusion because English may not be your first language, but I am having trouble connecting the images to the text. You say your breasts don't touch, but there seems to be a pretty clear line of contact between them under the bra... and I can't really tell where the band does sit.

    • The fit seems off if the breasts are touching and also look squished into each other. Pulling down at the back further than 90 degrees also will cause flattening and squishing so maybe that is why. I also see wrinkling in the cup which is another sign it is not fitting.

    • Also I am not sure pulling it down at the back is the reason for elininating back fat...it looks like a wider band could be the reason along with leaning forward and pushing arms forward. It would be better to see a picture with arms at the sides and standing straight up to confirm that idea.

      As someone above a K cup I can assure you I can buy a custom bra (and have) for around $60 usd.

      I'm glad this bra is so comfortable for you. I believe its main selling points are a nice wide band and a lot of forward projection. Band width is a key indicator of comfort for me. Although I do wear my band level with the bottom of my breast root, which is high up on my chest because I am high set, I find the wider and firmer the band, the more comfort and less back pain I feel.

    • Thank you for your comments cupandahalf

      I live in the UK and don't know any custom made bra makers who will make a bra for less than £200. One company I contacted stated their prices started from £305 for a bra anywhere up to £800!!!

      Hi Elodie and dbmamaz

      Sorry perhaps separation in the wrong terminology. I meant that rather than having one big uniboob or mononoob there is now a clearly defined shape to two separate breasts under my clothes. My bust now looks perky rather than round and bulbous. Hope that explains a little better. x

      littlebigreid Thank you for sharing your review. If you would like a yellow flexible measurement tape, I will post it to you, free of charge. Just send me a private message if you are interested.

      littlebigreid if you are interested in a custom wired bra, check out Comexim. They make up to size 40N and sister sizes up to a 50 band. They are a Polish company and their custom bras cost around $60 usd. They will add asymmetry pad pockets, lower center, wider band, nearly anything you can imagine!

      cupandahalf "nearly anything you can imagine" --unbelievably true. Amazing customer service. I'm hoping they will make unwired bras soon :-)

      Please remember this is a fitting site so if members here see glaring fit issues with a bra and its fit there will be comments to those points which is neither unconstructive criticism nor aggressive. We have many knowledgeable members here who can may also be experienced bra fitters.

      Perhaps read the fit guide on ABTF: https://www.reddit.com/r/ABraThatFits/wiki/measuring/

      They also have beginner guides and terminology outlined on ABTF that are useful. Please also consider adding measurements. A ruler works fine when you lay a bra flat for the flat measures like band length and stretched band at minimum. Data is what drives this site and even if it is custom someone can gleen a lot of info from these measurements even if not the same size.
