Normally padded/balconette cups are not for me, but I ended up with this bra as, to my surprise, it fit very well when I tried it on, is very supportive, and is nice and comfortable. The straps are wide, but I have wider shoulders so this is not a problem for me. They are also fully adjustable for us with shorter torsos! The cups are a lightweight, stretchy foam, rather than being stiff. Normally I have an issue filling out these kind of cups as I don't have a lot of projection (reconstructed breasts) but it was no problem here because of the stretch.
There is also good lateral ...support even though there are no seams due to the way the straps are attached at the cup. This is important in my case due to the reconstruction to prevent implant migration. I have also read a few reviews on the internet that complain of higher wire on side..the wire is higher, but I again prefer this in my case for better support and to really encapsulate the implant (and I expect would do similar for breast tissue!). Shorter wires just don't feel as supportive in this sense for me. Though higher, it does not dig or pinch.
The lace trim at the top at this point is a bit snug over my "D" shaped breasts, but it does not exactly make a quad boob either on me. It might be an issue for some though. The lace adds some interest and is not visible under my tops.
Band feels snug, but stretchy.
I really like this bra, and it surprised me that I did! I got it in Lilac as that was all they had in store even though purple is not exactly my favourite colour, but I intend to order it in a black and/or nude as well. Read more 199 more words
This bra is not for the narrow of boob. Something I didn't realize I was until I wore it. Wide wires. It is also a size small as I have some quad boob going on. Straps are a little sharp, but refreshingly small. Band is comfy (I have a snug 29" under bust). Good lower projection. Cups come up a bit high in the front. I have close set boobs and the gore is weirdly unobtrusive, so that is a plus. Overall nice bra if you have a wide root.
The underwires on this were really wide. I could fit into this bra, but the shape wasn't the best. It makes breasts look really nice and rounded, but kind of flattened from the side, like a minimizer I guess. The band felt pretty true to 30, nice and firm.
The material is incredibly soft, it feels great on the skin. The cups are lightly padded with a soft, foamy-cottony cup, very malleable. Also the lace detailing barely shows under a tight top, which is good on a nude bra.
If the shape wasn't so awkward on me, I'd have kept this. The softness is amazing.
I am very pleased with the Porcelain Viva 6701 bra. I have wide root breasts that start near my underarm. This bra completely encases my breast tissue comfortably. I fill the cups well without overflow. Beneath a thin knit top, the cups look smooth, with an uplifted, rounded shape.
The size, shape, comfort and appearance are very good for me. I would purchase this bra again.
The fabric of this bra is VERY soft and comfortable, but the shape just didn't work for me. I got massive quad-boobing, which makes me think I either have taller roots or am more FoT than I originally thought. It could also be because the top of the bra does close off anything above it, making this bra best for short roots imo.
Love this bra! In regards to design: It has a casual but elegant design, it's incredibly supportive (while very comfortable imo, the cups are quite stiff) and man does it hold up well over time. As for fit: I have a pretty narrow ribcage but have splayed breasts that are much fuller on the bottom than the top so this center panel design and cup height work great for me. I do wish the straps were inset more and that the band were a bit tighter (but I can wear both 30's and 32's) but I have yet to find a better fitting bra! If the cups fit snugly on this bra (32D) you might be interested in the Antinea (Lise Charmel) 3D spacer cup bra in 30E as well
This bra looks very good! The fabric is comfortable, it is made of a light padding, which is jut thick enough in my opinion.
The band is a little bit big for a 30 (feels like a 32), and it is very strechy. The cups are one or two sizes too small for me. I don't know if is is due to the cups being too small, but the bra tends to sit too low on my ribcage.
I liked the look of this bra as it's plain enough and the shape is not bad. The creasing at the bottom of the cup, visible in the pictures, may have been due a slightly small cup, but the bra felt like it would just sit an inch too low (as is my experience with any moulded bra). Not being a fan of moulded/padded bras, I did not feel it was worth ordering other sizes to try.
