There are several things about the Confetti which I love - it's small and sheer, optically minimising the boobs and making it an awesome choice for heat waves. I'm also a big fan of the rounded and uplifting shape it gives from the side and it is quite a pretty thing with all the floral embroidery and whatnot.
The straps are only semi-adustable, but still adjusted long enough for me. Also, the bra is sold as ivory, but I'd say it was lighter - I'd call it off-white rather than ivory.
Although the bra fits me very well and when I breathe out, the cups seem even a little larger, ...I got a little quadraboob after wearing the bra all day long and bending up and down a lot (spring cleaning the flat). It's also not a bra to run aroun in https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":D" /> (fixed this in the end by stitching the wide center gore together - boobs don't escape anymore). I'm tempted to try a 28J next time I order the Confetti (because I'm definitely getting a black version!) to see how it works out... but as it is, this size fits fine as well.
(EDIT: After wearing it for a few months, the cups stretched and now fit me absolutely perfectly - I was quite surprised! Also, while the underwire poked sometimes in the beginning, this has now also stopped)
Lastly, the only two things I don't like about the Confetti are of a rather cosmetic nature: the metal clasps on the straps are gold in color (gold/white? Has to be my least favourite color combo ever) and the white bow in the middle of the boobs tickles and is generally a nuisance. But that was easily solved by cutting the excess bits of ribbon off https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> Read more 198 more words
The wires are shorter than the fabric tube (2cm shorter!). So they can be moved either to the arms or to the center. Therefore the outer end of the wire is not at the end of the bra and the pointy end of the wire digs into my side/armpit. Very uncomfortable.
This bra is really cute, and I wish it fit... But the seam that connects the two bottom parts to the top part of the three-part cup cuts into my breast tissue. I think it may be because the bra is missing its lining- I got it used. It looks good and fits pretty well otherwise; I think I might line it and make it into a bellydance bra as per these instructions: http://www.shushanna.com/bracover.html
Pros: Pretty, high-quality lace. Cute gold embellishment for the strap toggle things instead of the usual plastic.
Cons: Seams are less stretchy than the rest of the cup, so they cut in https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> Band is a bit stretchy.
I misjudged my size in this one. While I'm usually a 28H/30GG, I had to go up a cup size in the Confetti and would probably be better off in a 28J. I refuse to give up on this bra, though,because it's just beautiful, so I'll write a proper review as soon as I get one which fits me properly https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
This is my first non-moulded cup in many years. Confetti is really pretty (mine's black), very nice embroidery. I'm finding it doesn't itch at all. Because of the detail on the cup it's not much good for fitted tops.
The underwire is quite wide and the bottom third of the cup is definitely shallow. I'm pretty sure the shallow-ness is what creates the lift. Viewing from above it creates a nice round shape.
Thanks to the lovely brasihate, I now finally own the gorgeous Confetti! Yay! This is the most beautiful bra I've ever seen. I was really worried it wouldn't fit me, but to my surprise, it fit like a glove! It gives a very nice round shape and perfect lift. The embroidery is so pretty and the fabric is soft. I really can't think of anything that's not good about this bra. I love it!
EDIT: Due to weight gain, this bra no longer fits like it did https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> The band is not so bad; still fits comfortably snug but the cups are waaay too small. Would be a much better fit if it were a 30HH or 32H. Not sure if I'm ready to let this bra go since it's one of my favorites and the most beautiful one I own at the moment.
I really had high hopes for this bra, but it fell flat. I had heard this was a good bra for FOT boobs, but I had terrible spillage issues and the seam at the tops of the cups cup into my breasts very deeply. I had, not a quadra-boob, but a sextuple-boob effect! I don't know if the cup was just too small or what. The gore was a bit too wide as well. I prefer the gore on the Marcie or smaller than that. The bra was very well constructed and the appearance was very nice. The straps were slightly padded in the front, which made them very comfortable. And the band was also very comfortable. I appreciated the 3 rows of hooks instead of 2, as well! But, overall, too much spillage and cutting in. Very sad. Will be reselling.
