    36G

    Didn't fit

    Even getting this bra at a deep discount (more than 40% off regular retail of $38 USD) was not enough to persuade me to keep it. This is my second bra from Felina (this brand's parent company) and I'm about ready to give up them for good. I have one more coming from kohls.com, a Paramour Sophia vertical seam half cup. The cut looks similar to the Felina Lana I tried which did look pretty amazing on, so maybe Sophia will be a keeper.

    The band in this and in the Felina Lana I tried felt a bit tight in a 36 on ... my 33.5" ribcage. If I needed a larger cup size I'd consider getting a 38 as this only goes up to a US G (DDDD or UK F) but cup volume was not the issue for me. It's so useful to post and review pictures here on bratabase because I can often see fit issues that I can't feel when the bra is on or see looking in the mirror. In the case of this Captivate Lace it turned out to be the apex projection of the cups; basically there is none. My boobs look squared off, lol!

    This bra is undeniably pretty, especially (imho) in the black/blush combination I purchased. The sheer lace is lovely and and is matched on the tops of the cups, though not on the bottoms. I like the combination of floral lace on the front with the sheer pointelle pattern on the back. There is even lace on the straps. But then there are so many places where they cheaped out on quality. The lace on the top of the cups has no stretch and is not fitted well to the bottoms. I have wrinkles in the top of the cups and in-cup quadding at the horizontal seam. They could have used clear elastic at top edge of the cups to help fit the lace better, but instead they used a thin plastic(?) strip to stabilize the lace. It looks and feels cheap. The band is powermesh which is also not the most comfortable thing, and this bra has side stays which did not bother me while I wore it but I can see in my side view picture the stays are cutting in so after a day's wear they would probably hurt.

    Felina/Paramour has some really great looking styles. I just wish they would concentrate more on fit and quality.

    Hasn't set fit

    I saw this bra on Amazon and thought it was exquisite. In real life it is even prettier than the picture. Three hooks in the back and just enough stretchiness to be comfortable. There is no space in the gore. The wires could not be closer together unless they were overlapping. So pretty that I might be tempted to wear it under a semi-sheer white blouse or shirt

      Very beautiful!!! Looks like it is supportive, too.

      @Love4Polinators, it feels quite supportive. Paramour is made by Felina and I have had pretty good luck with those bras. The gore does widen out pretty quickly, so this may not be a good fit for you.

    34G

    Didn't fit

    The Great Amazon Prime Wardrobe Try-On, Part 3
    My shape: full on bottom, soft tissue, narrow shoulders/roots.
    Appearance: This bra is striking in the contrast of the black lace on the white lining. Remind me of fancy, floral Oreos.
    Fit: Ok, so I tried on a different Paramour bra with my first Prime Wardrobe order, and that one was a 32G. The band didn't even stretch to 30 with that one, so I went ahead and tried this size, 34G, thinking that it would fit closer to my actual size. Nope, this band stretches to 34 pretty much exactly. Whaaaaat. This brand has some weird band sizing issues, or the ... first bra I tried was some freak one-off. Who knows!
    The wires are wider on this one; they remind me of Curvy Kate wires in shape.
    Anyways, as you can see by the pictures, this definitely does not fit me. I'm quadding all over the place. This would probably fit if it was one or two cup sizes larger, but I'm more than likely not going to be trying any more Paramour bras. (Mostly because my sizes are hardly available as a Prime Wardrobe option.)

      Thank you for trying it & adding the data! The more bras we have entered, the stronger the database, so even the "fit" fails are BtB wins.
      I wonder if Amazon realizes that their new wardrobe option is helping build this bra community? Woohoo for Amazon!

    • Oh! And another note, Paramour 32G would be another UK 32F situation (32:7 instead of 32:9) so that also explains why this 34G was too small in the cup as well.

      If you browse the brands before hand and click the size range tab, it will let you know their sizing method.

    • Super cute-- "fancy Oreos" :-) :-)

    32G

    Didn't fit

    This was one of the 8 bras I tried in my first Amazon Prime Wardrobe Box! (Sadly, 8/8 did NOT fit)
    HOLY SHALLOW CUPS! This bra is like, seriously, at least 2 sizes too small. I didn't do enough research on their size range, obviously, hahah! I don't understand how they can call this a 32 band, when it doesn't even stretch to 30 inches.
    Despite the fact that it's so small, this bra is really pretty. I ordered the aquarelle color, which is a nice shade of blueish green/teal. I also liked the delicate lace on the straps; makes for a nice feminine touch.

    32DD

    Didn't fit

    This isn't a style of bra I would typically wear, but I was at Kohls and decided to see what they had in 32DD. I was pleasantly surprised to find this and a 32DDD on the clearance rack, that were returned from online orders. I went ahead and tried on both. This bra fit surprisingly well, although I didn't buy it since I didn't care for the look of it under a shirt. The band was a bit on the snug side, but I think it would have been alright after a few wears. I do feel like the cup fit quite well ... other than the fabric being a bit wrinkly, and I don't think that was a fit issue so much as just the thin delicate fabric at top, although it did seem to be wrinkly on just one side. I also typically have issues with IMF and the underwire sitting too low, it seemed to be good on this bra. Overall I liked the fit of this bra, but it is not a style I would wear especially since it is a bit visible under a shirt. I was mostly trying it on in hopes it would give me an idea of Paramour's fit so I could order something in a different style online and at least have a good starting point for size. If you are looking at Paramour at least in this style I would possibly recommend a larger band size if you don't want it to be really snug.

    I didn't have a measuring tape with me so I could measure the bra, but I would appreciate opinions on the fit. lcl0706 wendybien pics are here http://bra.pe/ME67/ and all of me unless some get added, but it's the white lace with tags on it.

    • This looks really much better than the VS. You can see a difference in where the underwires are sitting underneath your boob, right in your IMF. The wire width looks good on the sides. The volume of the cup looks good. The wrinkling lace is probably just a slight shape mismatch - this bra looks to allow for slightly more upper fullness than you have.

    • Thanks for your help, hopefully their underwire in their other styles is cut similarly I might try to order one of these online. Also going to try Norstrom as someone else recommended, hopefully they have at least a few options in 30/32 so I can get more familiar with the band fits of other brands.
