    Hasn't set fit

    Melody 28KK
    I am adding this bra for data/informational purposes only. This Bra is not owned by me at the time of addition to the database.

    Melody is an unpadded underwire balconette bra. I tried it in black, though I think it comes in other colors as well.

    The band measures 26” to a max of 31.5” making with 3 hooks and 3 rows of eyes.

    Cup Depth as measured by:
    1 Hovering the cup between the knees, then placing the tape measure into the cups without any resistance.
    This measurement is: 15”

    2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, ... to the maximum resistance.
    This measurement is: 16.5”

    I feel these two figures give you a general idea of the minimum and maximum depth that the cup can accommodate, just like the flat and stretched band measurements do with bands. Since Bratabase only has one cup field, I enter the larger of the two, as it’s this larger number that determines if a cup is going to fit me or not since I am on the max end of the cup scale, but do realize that some may need the lower number to determine fit for their needs, so I will always include both figures in the reviews for full disclosure.

    Love the unique lace details in this bra and the material feels very nice and soft. Plus it it isn't very tall overall - stays out of my armpits.

    But I found it uncomfortable. The band didn't fit tight but the wires were instantly digging in and creaking. Wires were a bit wide and the top of the cup was a bit too closed off for me.

    This bra cuts into my breasts along the top and gives me the weirdest shape! Not exactly quad-boob, but truly awful. I wear it only for working out.

    Didn't fit

    Disclosure: This bra doesn't actually fit me in both the cups and band, so that is the reason for a lot of my fit issues.

    The Melody is a pretty bra with a nice band of lace at the top. Unfortunately, the band is too big and the cups are probably two sizes too big for me (I think I would do better with a 28J or 28I). The gore is too wide for my very close-set breasts, so even though it tacks (and is the first bra I've owned to do so), it pushes my breasts east/west a lot. The underwire is also too long and ends somewhere in my armpit. I have a small frame, so I'm hoping to have more luck with Ewa Michalak or Comexim.

    The bra doesn't dig or pinch anywhere, and it's fairly comfortable. It just doesn't fit my shape and it's far too big for me.

  5. I love this bra! It gives me a nice mix of natural and uplifted shape.
    It's a tad too tall/wide at the gore, but not enough to bother me at all. When gores are this tall there is almost always a problem with that.
    The band is tight even though I bought this used and there are only very minimal signs of wear. I am glad I took a chance on this bra!

    I thought at first that this bra was a really good fit for me, but then I noticed that the centre gore had folded in on itself at the top (boobs 1, underwires 0), and when I took it off, I noticed that the wire marks on the side extend the best part of an inch past the edge of my breast tissue. It's very comfortable, though, and I can happily wear it all day!

    Well, I didn't like this bra. I thought the material of the cups was too soft and stretchy. My nipples were too evident under light clothes (a little I don't mind). While I didn't have a quad boob per se, it did give the look of it, while not cutting into tissue. One boob had a nice/normal shape to it, the other (smaller) didn't, it was this quad effect with smooth top. I'll still wear it, just not under thin clingy clothes. The wires were too narrow for me, I'm much more comfortable in slightly wider wires such as the Harmony, though the Tango Luxe has similar width and fits me perfectly. The bigger issue is really the fabric, too stretchy for me.

    Edit: I stretched the wires to make them wider, so it's MUCH more confortable now, and the fit looks slightly better. It's wearable. Pictures are unaltered.

    Months later edit: didn't keep this bra very long, just too stretchy over time.

    The centre gore is quite painful on my sternum.

    I had to go down from my usual 28J, so this runs large in the cup. I've also found that despite the fact that the cup is narrower at the top of the wire than most of my other bras, there is a lot of empty space to the sides, in fact the wire pretty much goes half way around my body

    I've tried on this bra three times now, and each time it fits me differently. I guess this is normal, but it makes it difficult to decide if I want to keep it or not.

    First try gave me a weird shape on larger boob. It cut in on the top of the cup? It looked super awkward. Second try fit better. It wasn't perfect, but it didn't have as much of the awkwardness of the first try. This third try gives me the best look so far. There doesn't seem to be any cutting in on my larger side. The smaller side is still too large (was for ... all three tries) and it looks kind of empty on that side.

    The band is a bit loose and would need to be taken in to fit best. But I don't know what that would do to the cups and how they fit me, and I know this bra doesn't look good when the cups are too small.

    I'm also not entirely convinced on the overall shape given by this bra. It's kind of pointy and not in a way that's flattering, at least to my eyes.

    Overall, the bra is comfortable. The cups are just fabric with some mesh on the inside and lace along the edge. The straps are fully adjustable. I picked the teal color, which is just lovely.
