I bought this bra after trying it on in my local lingerie store, knowing the size I would need, and seeing it for only $30 on Amazon (I know, I know, support local - but you all know how expensive bra shopping is!!) I decided to get it even though it wasn't quite perfect, because I'm low on well-fitting bras and needed something to tide me over. The problems I have with this bra are similar to others I have had in the past: annoying crease on the bottom (not filling the bottom, but I think the problem isn't the cup size but more the shape), and straps are way to far apart for my narrow/petite frame. Usually I spend 10% of my day shimmying my bra to raise the underwire, and also adjusting the band back down, and moving the straps back in to rest in a comfortable spot on my shoulders. I'll keep this for now.
I love the look of this bra and I'm amazed that something so delicate looking can be so supportive but damn is that lace under the bottom band scratchy and irritating. I'm going to have to look in to doing some kind of fix there. I don't wear this with an extender but if I gain another lb I might have to.
This is probably the bra that fits me the best at the moment (30 weeks pregnant). It fits quite comfortably on the loosest hook, but I can also wear it on the middle one without pain. This should give me some grace for water weight loss when the baby is born. What I love the most is that it has a nice cut out at the bottom of the center gore so it is not cutting into my pregnant belly. The lace will also be quite forgiving should I go up yet another cup size (already up 4!!), though at this particular cup size, ...I don't think it could handle any loss of tissue and still fit well. Some cons are that the straps are really wide on my narrow-shouldered body. If I try to hug myself, it cuts into the fronts of my armpits. I can remedy this with a "hide-a-strap" if I wanted to. Also, it's a little high under the armpits, but not that it digs in. It peaks through some tank tops though. I wish the center gore wasn't so high as well. It digs in a bit when I slouch, but that's just encouraging to sit up straight. The biggest complaint about this bra is just that it doesn't easily hide under v-necks (high center gore) or tank tops (wide straps and high underarm wings). As I come near my due date, I'll probably convert this into a nursing bra. I really like the side support and the structure created by the 3 part cups, which is something you don't find in nursing bras in this size! Read more 174 more words
The lace was as stretchy as they say, but not quite as comfortable. It felt much itchier than I expected. The shape was soft and rounded, which I liked, but the cups weren't quite large enough to fit without cutting in on my larger boob. I would have tried to find this in a 30H if it was more comfortable.
