    My shape: Projected, narrow, shorter roots, even/functionally full on bottom, soft tissue. Cleo Lily fits me best.

    I have been looking for a comfortable wireless bra that has a tight enough band. Unfortunately, this one didn't quite work out.

    The band runs about one size larger (but it has 6 columns of hooks), and the cups are pretty much true to size (I get the tiniest amount of cutting in on my larger side).

    There's very little lift with this bra, but I wasn't expecting much anyway. The dealbreaker for me is that this bra cuts into my tail of spence pretty painfully.

      I also found that this provides no support. I think they would have done better with 3 columns of hooks instead of two.

    • I also have an Alisha which I bought for lounging and sleeping. It definitely does not give good support, or shape. That wasn't a huge deal to me since I wasn't going to wear it out. However, I rarely wear it because it also tends to cut painfully into my tail of spense. If I do wear it I put it on the last of the six hooks so that it is less likely to cut in to me.

    • decent exposures . . . they fully customize . . .

    I bought this bra for sleeping/lounging and it fits pretty well, but provides zero support, putting the weight of the breasts all on the neck and shoulders. There are only two hooks per row. It is closed on top so those with FOT breasts might not fit into it.

    I've been sleeping in this bra for a couple of weeks now. Between this and the other bras I've been trying in that time, I'm beginning to suspect I have narrow shoulders. Sleeping at night, this guy stabs me in the shoulders with it's straps. A lot. I quad in this like crazy, but weirdly it wrinkles and gapes in spots too. It can't seem to decide whether it wants to be too big or too small. The six columns of hooks are all well and good, but why only two rows?! Plus they itch and pinch and pull! It gives me crazy cleavage, but that also means a bit of boob sweat during the night which is sort of yuck. Overall I feel very MEH about this bra, and I'm super glad I got it for cheap on the listings here rather than paying full price for a new one.

      sounds like an anti-sleeping torture device! :o

      Yeah, i'm wondering what you are looking for in a sleep bra? I only wore a bra to bed for a short while, when the pill was making my boobs really hurt. But i saw one woman saying she cant stand them touching each other. This thing doesnt look like it would accomplish much at all as a sleep bra?

      I am honestly not very impressed by the wireless unpadded options from Panache and Freya. This design is not at all suited to a larger or heavier bust, or indeed even just a projected one like mine. If you really need to be supported for sleep I recommend the old fashioned, super cheap granny bras like the Playtex 18 Hour Original (See my profile) or the Triumph Doreen (available fairly cheaply on ebay from European retailers offloading past season colors). These designs are still sized vintage-style meaning you will probably need to size up in the band and size down in the cup. But they are super supportive and are built for comfort!

      So I shouldn't mention that I sleep in a corset then...? ;)

      I sleep face down so having a corset on in the process is last on the list of concerns. I did sleep in a bra a lot years ago, mostly because I fell asleep with one on along with my clothes and sometimes shoes still on. It was during the years when I was burning the candle at both ends so to speak with college and so on....

      I had a soft cup Bali "double support" I think, couldn't handle how itchy it was even after several washings so it went out with the other clothing I was donating. I wouldn't wear it out in public anyway, even under clothes it gave me a horrendous profile - sort of square and lumpy.

    • Nayanya - I would very happily sleep without one except that they fall into my armpits and when I roll over they sort of get stuck and that is indescribably painful and for obvious reasons wakes me up. I've admitted that to hubby and a couple of close friends but having typed it sounds really ridiculous and embarrassing lol!

      wendybien - I always look forward to your comments. You are like a bra encyclopaedia. I'll see if I can find one of those maybe in a couple of sizes since I haven't pinned down where I'm supposed to he yet. Thanks for the suggestion! I was thinking of maybe trying one of the wired baby dolls from CK or Panache Sport since the one I have for exercising is so comfy, and just sizing up a bit because it obviously doesn't need to prevent bounce and be so tight.

    • You could look at the unbra from Decent Exposures - i wear them most of the time, but I'm trying to build up a 'real bra' wardrobe so when I go back to work next year, I dont look so dowdy. but they are very very comfy, and come in sizes, and are all cotton or cotton blends. not much support, but might rein them in for you

      I used to have hubby lay on the nipple somehow? Oddly that doesnt seem to happen any more. But i LOVE taking off my bra for bed. I have on occasion used a pillow between my boobs, but now I usually have my arm in between them, I guess? But never in my arm pit.

    • My husband and toddler are constantly leaning or lying on me and crushing my stray boob tissue (typically the nipple) when I'm lying in bed. I suspect it is not nearly as rare or weird as it sounds!

      I would love to be able to sleep in a bra when I'm pre-menstrual, but I can barely stand wearing them during the day!

    • these 'real' bras are so painful for me - i cant let my youngest lean against me because it hurts so much. I keep wondering if there are other very short 32Js who have the same experience? Because of the wires being so very low on my rib cage .. . its just so painful. I am so jealous of people whose wires dont hurt so much.

      I can take it for 10 hours, though.

      but really the unbras are a totally different beast.

    • I'm one of those oddballs who horrifies other women by sleeping in the same underwired bras I wear all day. I've always, whether they were the right size or not, felt more comfortable sleeping in bra -- this goes all the way back to my first "training bras" when I was 10. I think it all goes back, once again, to my tiny little roots -- it all just flops around really uncomfortably and gets so sweaty underneath without something (and I don't think wirefree will cut it) to pull it up and away from my ribcage.

    • It horrified me at first, until I realized that for some people its comfy. For me, taking off my bra is one of the most wonderful things I feel most days . . . the pain stops and I can breathe!

    • I like sleeping with a not too tight tank top. That seems to keep my girls in line. lol :)

    • dbmamaz sounds like you need some extra soft padding on your wires. :)

    • I tried an extender once to make my Envy hurt less - it worked better when I tucked it under my wires than when I put it where it belonged. I'm really struggling to figure out what to do about my pain. It might just be I can only wear a bra for 8 hours. But there is literally only an inch from the bottom of my boobs to the bottom of my rib cage, and I really think thats part of the problem. I start to wonder if I'm more full-on-bottom than I think, and maybe I could get the wire sort of up under my boob? so tis not on such sensitive spots? Idk. I need to keep searching for an answer. I guess I could start be searching on how to pad your underwires.

    • dbmamaz In one of those videos on youtube there was a woman cutting up a pantiliner and sticking it to the part of the wire on the bra that was hurting her.

    2nd of 2 bras, same style, same size.
    Nearly identical, though this one is "newer" and more snug, in general.
    (Less worn.)

    It's slightly too small in the cup in depth and total "around" measurement. The fit is more like a sports bra since the center gore doesn't do anything a wired gore would. It's a little too tall in the cups for me (as usual).

    I think I will get more of these if they show up on sale. I will also try the 34H.

    The only bad points:
    - shaping is... meh.
    - the band is not stretch material really, so sometimes rides up and front curves under boob because of that.
    - straps slightly too wideset, but they don't hurt, so it's mostly okay.

    If you're having issues with wires and pain ... and fit in this size range, it will help.

    ==========
    Update after losing a little weight:

    Still fits okay. I wear it on the 2nd to 4th set of hooks, depending on where in my puffy cycle I am in. (This bra has 6 sets of hooks.) The cups are okay, but I still think they don't do much for me. It's still my "comfy" bra that I wear when I am going to move around a lot. If I lose much more weight, it's not going to give me much support and I'll have to size down.

    32FF

    Didn't fit

    This bra is incredibly odd. I was hoping to find a sleep bra, but I am not sure about this. The band is incredibly tight. There are six columns of hooks, and I have to wear it on the 4th-5th hook for it to fit comfortably. I understand that this is meant to be a pregnancy bra with room for growth, but the band is incredibly tight and the cut of it us just awkward. I find myself having to squish my pit fat into the cup fairly regularly, although in the long run that might not be terrible. I really wanted something to sleep in, as my breasts are incredibly dense and heavy, and this cuts of circulation to my arms in some positions.

    Aside from my personal gripes, hopefully at least some of which will go away after I have broken it in a bit more, this bra is incredibly soft and very cute. I wouldn't wear it as an everyday bra, as it gives me a pretty awful uniboob, but it might serve its purpose.

    30G

    Didn't fit

    Was fitted into this bra by a professional fitter who told me i was definitely a G - and that a FF wouldnt fit. This size only was on sale for $10 so i got it as i am in desperate need of some underwire free bras for the next few months.

    tried it on again when i got home - needs to be on the tightest hook (think there is 6!) to even come close to being tight enough (i usually fit 30s fine). The fabric wrinkles unless i keep adjusting it. the band that acts as the underwire goes wayyyy back onto my sides, which wouldnt be a huge problem as there is no underwire - however it causes the fabric to rub under my armpits and the straps are too far apart.

    It may fit better in a 28G/FF not sure but it is so uncomfortable that i dont think i will ever wear it!! plus it is wha i think of as a 'nanna bra' on me - not particularly pretty!!

    32D

    Didn't fit

    This is a soft cup bra with no underwire. The band of this bra comes with a whopping 6 columns, which would be great except that it feels too loose even on the smallest hook. If I were to buy this again, I would go down to the smallest possible band size and find the cup that fits the best. The cups also seem larger than they should be for a 32D. This has the potential to be a very comfortable bra, except for the sizing issue. Because it didn't fit right, I couldn't get the straps to sit correctly or comfortably, and the band seemed to run large even on the tightest hook.
