I have a wide root and shallow boobs. I do need flat cups but not extraordinary wide wires. I almost don't have any volume on top. I usually wear this bra when my boobs are smaller during the first weeks after my mestruation.
The band appears to be true to size, the cups also does. This bra has really wide wires which are about 1,5cm too wide for me. Since it demands more volume on top than I can acutally offer the upper cup wrinkles a litte.
This is a very pretty bra and I love the floral embroidery on it. It's my first fabric cupped bra and I'm very pleased, the cup seems sheer upon first inspection (I have this in black) but once on it's more opaque than I expected. I love that the gore is wider because it fits my wide-set, shallow breasts very well.
The only fit problem I have with this bra is that the top of the cups where the finer lace is does wrinkle and I don't quite fill it out even with swooping and scooping, however I'm fuller on bottom so this makes sense. The bra is also a little tight and since there is no padding the underwires dig a little after a few hours.
Overall it's a very nice bra and it will be staying in my drawer despite the small fit issue.
Great shape, gives surprising cleavage for an unpadded bra! Unfortunately, I could fasten it on the tightest hook immediately and cups are just a hair big (not surprising; I'm a 30G). If the cups were smaller, I would just take in the band, but I tightened the straps and band all the way, which caused all the fit issues. This would be prefect for me in a 30G/28GG.
My breast tissue is very soft around the areola area, though they are elsewise firm. Unfortunately this does not work with this bra, as it seems so be shallow in the bottom, deep from the middle and quite unsupportive in the central area - therefore creates wrinkles in the fabric and a pointy shape.
The bra that fits me best so far, I think I finally figured out my real size as 32J: no spillage, whole boob is inside the cup, wearing the new bra on the loosest hooks.
However, the center gore is either too wide/ too high for my close set boobs. So much so that after wearing it for a few hours, the right underwire naturally migrates on my right boob (the smallest) and only the left underwire is left between my breasts. And there's clearly no room for more than one there. Even altering the bra and tucking in the center gore (which is pretty wide) doesn't solve the ...issue. As a result I end up with angry red lines on my belly from where the underwire has been pushed away from my chest and down.
The shape is pretty nice, overall round but with a squarish/flat look if one looks closely. The seam between the lower half of the cup and the mesh seems to be digging into my boob somewhat. But my breasts are not very dense at this place, so it might not be a flaw of the bra itself. It doesn't show anyway when I'm wearing a top. No quadraboob effect though! Read more 95 more words
EDIT: The recommendation thingy says this bra is suited for people with close boobs. No way in heck. XD
The wires are too wide for me, and this causes quadboobing and empty space at the bottom (At least, I think that's what's at fault). I took the gore in and this took care of the quadboobing, however, I still have a space at the bottom of the cups. I am pretty sure I am not wearing the bra too low, since when I take the bra off, the underwire marks sit almost on my bra tissue (possibly on the breast, but I'm not sure where normal underwire marks are supposed to sit yet. Also, the underwire is MURDER on my ribcage.
This bra is for someone a bit more wide-set than me. Possibly, if this bra was made in my size (24F) it might actually have a better fit. Such a shame, it's a really pretty bra too.
