Tried this on in the store though it was a few sizes smaller than my usual (32F/FF (UK) vs 32DDD(US)) because it was on sale. =) It surprisingly fit well. Guess that confirms other peoples assumptions that this style runs big in the cups. Center gore tacks and is gloriously low (ignore my crazy underwire marks from my other bras) for my narrow set. I ultimately did NOT purchase this bra as I was concerned about the width of underwire despite the fact this bra WAS VERY COMFORTABLE. For reference, I am FoB, short/wide rooted, narrow set and projected. What do you think? Should I go back and pick up this bra? (There were a few on the sales rack yesterday)
The softness of the materials is the first thing I noticed. Straps, elastic on the band and wire channel are all flocked on the inside. Straps and band feel like they provide nice support and probably won't stretch out too quickly. The underwires are very flexible and conform to your ribcage easily. Fabric is very smooth. This is such a comfortable bra! It's too bad it's the wrong shape for me. If it weren't for my crazy short (but projected) roots it would mostly fit very well; and it does (when I stand straight), but it doesn't (when I roll my shoulders forward). The straps are pretty far set (however, still comfortable), which is probably another factor causing the gape with shoulders rolled. They tend to buckle next to the strap when I do that. I ordered the Mink color, which is a beautiful rich taupe. Very classy looking. Wish I could keep it!
This was one of two Paramour styles and tried, and both were too big in the cups, making me wonder if Paramour tends to run big there. It felt like a completely different size than other dozen or so 32Ds I've tried on lately.
I'm keeping this one because it's the closest thing to a well fitting bra that I have right now. It is very soft and comfortable. The gore doesn't lay flat, but I can live with that (for now). The band on this one is very stretchy.
