After some changes in my body and a period of time when bras weren't a priority, I've gone to get fitted at a store and this is the result. I was thrilled at first as it was significantly more comfortable than the bras I've been wearing before, but after wearing it for several full days, I've noticed some things that weren't as great.
First, the good. It's a nice nude bra with a touch of femininity with the lace. It provides good support and I love the J-hook option. The extra mesh side support is really nice. It's practically invisible under clothes. I am not a big fan of ...plain T-shirt bras, but this one works for me. It's also the first seamless cup that works for me. I like the soft material, it feels like the boobs are resting on a pillow.
I have to say I am not a fan of the full coverage style and minimized shape this bra provides. While it is subtle, I prefer my boobs up, front and center (so they make my stomach look smaller in comparison https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" />). For some people this might be a selling point, though.
The big problem for me is somewhere along the lines of underwire or band shape. I'm not quite sure what's going on, but if I put the band in it's rightful place, the lower outer part of the underwire is not quite where it needs to be, sitting a little away from my IM fold. This allows the cups to travel down my body over the course of the day and when they are forced back, say, by sitting down, it pinches the bit of skin below my boobs. In order to prevent this, I need to wear the band higher up in the back than I am used to, where instead of smoothing things over it creates a bulge. This is mitigated somewhat if I switch to the tightest hook, but that is not entirely comfortable and hey! I don't want to wear a new bra on the tightest hook. There's just something that doesn't entirely click with my shape, I think. Still, it's a good wearable bra for me, it's just that it's not perfect - and what is? Read more 271 more words
This looks good under t-shirts, gives a rounded, seam-free appearance. I believe it is a cup size too big for me. I'm able to fill the cups vertically, but the cups are too wide and the gore pokes into my sternum. There was enough projection at the wire for my full on bottom, projected breasts. The spacer foam is the lightest of any padded/foam option I've seen, even to the point showing slight nipple projection (not visible with a shirt, visible without a shirt). I discovered that I dislike the molded cup in general because there are no seams to give support to my breast tissue, and the ...bottom of my breasts are sore at the end of the day. I kept having to adjust the bra throughout the day to re-position it in my IMF, perhaps because the cups are too wide. Appearance wise, I dislike the thick straps and the bows, and I dislike the beige, which looks a bit sallow or something against my olive skin.I do like the lace pattern, and the bra does give a nice shape under clothes, so it gets a solid "ok" for appearance and is definitely one of the prettier nude t-shirt bras I've seen. There is a racer back attachment at the the top which helps address the wide-set strap issue, but that means the straps are visible. Read more 121 more words
Very nice bra. My favorite t-shirt bra. Very confortable, gore tacks (but inicially hurted my closed set boobs), wide cup though, nice for wide rooted. I love the material, it is soft, maleable, it is moulded but adjusts to the shape of the breasts.
I think this is a great bra that would fit a lot of people. Because the spacer fabric is really thin and flexible, it can conform to your shape, so it's able to accommodate more projection than most t-shirt bras and the top edge isn't closed or constricting. I'm wearing Nippies in the photos; otherwise there's some slight show-through. I had to push the wires down in the channels and bend them outwards slightly at the top, but I'm extremely close-set and I don't think the gore would be a problem if you're not. After I made this adjustment, the bra is overall very comfortable and I plan ...to use it as an everyday t-shirt bra during the summer. The design has a lot of attention to detail, from the pretty lace on the band to the flat ribbon bows to the tiny loop trim under the edges of the cups. You have to see it in person to see how pretty it is! The straps are a good width, not noticeably wide but not so thin that they dig in, and are fully adjustable (but there is a j-hook above the adjusters, so if you pulled the adjusters to the front of your shoulders, the j-hook would be in the front too). The back is u-shaped, making the straps are set a bit closer in, which is great for anyone who struggles with straps digging into their armpits or falling off their shoulders. The bra seems true to size for a Panache 28E. Read more 145 more words
Very short roots, projected, slightly narrow, even, close-set breasts....
The immediate projection feels fabulous. However, as is a common occurrence, when there is enough space near the wire, the cup is too tall, wrinkles in the top, and bites my underarm. Although the volume is comfortable, the oversized height is not. Compared to the 32F, this dramatically reduces bounce. But, the height of the 32F fits better on my very short breasts.
Like the 32F, the wire channel is longer than the wire. When the wire is moved furthest from the gore, the gore height is 2.25" tall and 1" wide: still requires a substantial alteration to fit my close-set ...breasts.
I have not attempted alterations on a molded cup before. But, after 92 bra purchases and not one fitting, I'm quickly warming to the idea. Sigh. This will require major surgery https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";-)" />
Great everyday bra with just enough padding to create a smooth surface. The padding is thinner than Comexim, Curvy Kate, and Ewa Michalak. Additionally, this model has good immediate projection and narrow-ish wires. The gore, however, requires "surgery" to fit close-set breasts.
Many thanks to my "boob cousin" for sharing one of her favorite, readily available bras. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" /> https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" /> If this gore were narrower, I would purchase a Cari bra. The spacer foam is thinner than the foam Comexim and Ewa Michalak use. The immediate projection is good: there was a bit of buckling near the wire. The concentric circles around the cradle were both tasteful and interesting.
However, I strongly prefer three columns of fasteners I always receive with my Comexim orders. The band on Cari feels less supportive because it is more narrow. Additionally, I appreciate the .75" straps on Comexim bras. Finally, Comexim will both narrow and overlap the gore wires which I require for my close set breasts.
This is a great bra if you need immediate projection and you can tolerate a .9" Gore width.
This bra is AMAZING! I am so happy I bought this bra. It is so smooth and light, and my breasts actually stay in the cups. This bra actually makes me feel proportional, not like I'm wearing a massive bra to hold up a massive chest. I have aready bought another one!
