This bra is fantastic! It fits just like the Cleo Marcie except only better! The wires are not as stiff and come up a tad higher in the armpit which I love, and it also has side boning which is a plus. I have it in every color except the leopard pink. The bands are a little tighter than my other Paramour bras which is nice. I had to sell a couple colors because they where sewn incorrectly at the top of the cup horizontal seem (it was only the polka dot ones).
I found this black and white polka dot confection at Nordstrom Rack. It is labeled Felina, not Paramour, but the model number 115702 is the same for both. I did not want to like this bra, but it successfully suspends my very lazy FOBs forward and outward. Sadly, it is often one cup size too small for me. A slightly taller and roomier cup would help control the jigglypuff and I would be able to wear it more often.
This is a 34:7 bra and I hover around 34:10 (34GG UK). I don't try 36 bands often enough because the straps seem so far apart. ...(I'm 5'3"and short-waisted). Strap placement and cup width could both be narrower, but they're both close enough. There is some wrinkling at the wire toward the center.The lace cup top stretches out during wear, so it doesn't look as pretty at the end of the day, but really, who does? The straps are more comfortable and substantial than I've experienced with Felina previously. The boning under the arms has started to make it presence known - not painfully - but at first I didn't even know it was there.
My current best-fitting and most comfortable bras are a 34GG Panache Envy (wrinkles at wire and slides down in front) and a 34GG Fantasie Selina (Jacqueline?) featuring a loose cup top and slightly too-wide wires. Read more 123 more words
It's pretty cute looking, and makes my breasts stick out front and center. There's good coverage, but I can still wear scoop neck or V-neck tops without the bra showing. The underwire width is good, and stops right where my breast tissue ends. The cup size is too small, particularly for my larger, left breast. I normally wear a 34 G UK [34:9 index] (34 I US), but this 34DDD/E [34:6 index] is technically 3 cup sizes too small, and it fits as if it's only 1 cup size too small (to me). Perhaps it's because the fabric is stretchy? The fabric can feel a bit itchy at times.
A cute looking bra and comfortable for the most part though I suspect the cup might be a bit small for me. The material is a bit thin and can feel a little scratchy at times though. I also do have trouble with the straps falling off my shoulders with activity and time.
I got the 38DD in this bra before I started getting my bra fit right. I got a 38DDD because the 38DD fit really well but needed to be slightly bigger.
I love this bra. It is my favorite for fit and one of my faves for how it looks. I stay in the bra well- don't really have to scoop during the day unless I'm working (daycare- kids like to wrestle.) and the band fits well. I plan on getting more of this bra and will look at others in this brand.
This bra is very cute, and it is close to fitting. My only issues are: The band is tight enough to provide adequate support, but it really stretches out quite far. Also, I get quadboob at the horizontal seam that is noticeable under everything. The band is itchy as well, even after washing.
