This bra is utterly gorgeous unclothed but under clothes the embroidery is quite prominent. The cups are super shallow at bottom. Taking in the gore helped overall with wrinkling at the bottom as well as creating more space in the cups, but I'm still quadboobing. I think 1 or 2 cups bigger would fit much better on me as well as providing more coverage at the top.
The underwires are not particularly wide when unworn, but they bend wider as the band stretches.
Also, this was on my recommendations under poor, which are the only ones I have.
Overall, I like this bra quite a lot, but I definitely need larger cups.
The shape from the side is round and uplifted. This bra is a bit too small on me and my nipples sometimes try to make a run for it, so I think a 28J would work better. However, the material already comes up high on the sides and rubs my underarms near the straps and is quite itchy in general. So I think the 28J would just rub my underarms even more. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> I hate that the wires come underneath the band. The bow on the center gore is long and sometimes tickles my underbust. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" />
I now have this bra in black and ivory, and the fit is almost identical (as it should be), but the cup seaming in the ivory seems to be a touch off; the seam between the top embroidery and the mesh bottom causes a bit of "internal quad-boob." I'm not sure how else to describe it, but even though overall the cup fits well, I bulge out over that seem. It's not a enough to make it unwearable, I just have to wear a thicker shirt or a cami underneath. I really like the shape this style gives, and the appearance (very feminine and soft), but it is not the most comfortable bra. The underwires are 1-2 inches longer than some of my other bras, and this causes some rubbing under my arms; it's not the wires themselves causing the problem, but the material running between the high wires and the straps. Still, I wear these pretty regularly. The straps themselves are slightly padded or fleeced, which really helps at the end of the day.
The short version: The cups are wider and shallower than the Freya mesh bras I’ve tried, but not so much as the Curvy Kate Emily. The gore doesn’t come up very high on me, and feels on the wide side. Three hooks on the band, which makes everything feel nice and supported.
I ordered a 30GG instead of a 32G. This was correct for me- the band is quite quite stretchy. The cup is one of the best fits I’ve gotten in a fabric bra! I need to readjust after six hours, but I tend to overspill after several hours in every cut-sew bra I’ve tried. Confetti has another potential fit issue- The underwires are long and wide and can poke you in the armpits if you’re petite, shorter-torsoed, or have higher-set breasts.
This is replacing my stretched-out Emily in my drawer as my single cut-sew bra. The fabric is amazingly soft for the job it does, even the embroidery!
I bought the Confetti when I knew very little about fit and was still trying to work out my basic size; my first impression was "the cups are just too shallow and wide", but in hindsight I probably could have done with trying a cup size smaller (28DD). It definitely runs shallow and wide relative to the Tango balconette, and it's a bit more open on top as well. In cup construction and overall shape, it's somewhat similar to the Cleo Lucy.
