I have wide roots and even, full all over boobs that are close at the top and splayed at bottom. This bra pushes all the fullness of my boobs out to the sides making me look very bulky and matronly.. I hate it the only good things are that it’s a good looking bra, feels sturdy and well made and in profile makes my bust look rather perky but yet somehow still low and heavy :/ Anyway stupidly I bought this bra because I doubted myself and listened to others who criticised my preference for having my boobs pushed together.. don’t let anyone tell you what bra to buy or what is acceptable or not.. the only way to know what you like is to try different bras and stick to what you believe looks and feels good, you are the one wearing it.
I have very wide, full all over boobs and quite short roots. PROS: • The relief I get from the lovely cushioned straps, their wide (but not too wide) and pretty • The perky projection, rounded and uplifted shape I get from the cups • The thin padding is v comfy and moulds to my shape more like a contour bra • The low centre gore allows for my high tummy and centre fullness, also can easily wear low cut tops as it is a plunge bra. • Brings my boobs front and centre with no east west side bulge problems. CONS: • I think the cups are a little more separated than I would like, I prefer ...them closer together. • There's only 2 hooks, 3 is always better in these sizes. • The straps only adjust half way, I normally like to tighten them as much as possible, although its fine as is in this particular bra. • The thin padding slightly shows the shape my nipples sometimes under v thin clothes, never bothered me before though but as age and gravity takes its toll I mind more now …but it doesn’t show all the time and is not too obvious anyway, so, I can live with it. The wire pokes me a little under my right arm, which is my smaller boob, so the wires are very tall and supportive at the sides.
Band seems TTS which is good for a black bra. The shape is wrong for me. Too shallow and the apex of the cup is an inch above my apex so there's space at the top. The wires don't contain my side tissue so it gaps in no time.
I wouldn't suggest this bra for someone with a similar cup shape; although the width of the wires is just right, the cups are very tall, giving both gapping and wrinkling under the breasts. They would suit someone with taller breasts, a fuller shape through the top of the breast or firmer breast tissue. The band is a good fit on the tightest hook at the time of purchase (I'd estimate true to size, since I had to size up to get the 28) and the straps aren't too wide for narrow shoulders, which is nice - I wish I could stitch different cups onto the frame to get a perfect fit, because these cups aren't going to work with these boobs.
I needed a beige t-shirt plunge bra and I wanted to try something new, so I decided to try this one since the straps are thinner than the ones on the deco.
Pros: - thin 1.5cm straps (this might be a con for some) - the eyes are padded - you can criss cross the straps in the back
Cons: The fit is terrible. The band is too tight, but with a extender it's fine. The cups are awful, it felt too big and too small at the same time. I couldn't fill out the bottom, near the wires and it looked like the cups were collapsing even though I don't have heavy breasts. It cut in at the top edge on one side but not the other. Shape was not good either kind of lumpy, but I'm assuming it's related to the fit of the bra as well.
