As they say - if the shoes fits... in this case, The Bra! Very comfy to wear everyday and the girls don't mind the occasional pinch, if you're an active lass like I am. This bra is very sexy, just too bad the store didn't have the matching panty. Last one in my Size! WHOOTS! It was on sale for $5.00 and it was red tagged as a clearance item, so I got an additional 50% off! My only regret is that they didn't have more!
Pretty bra, but not much there structurally. The cups feel very stretchy which doesn't help to support. I'm bouncing while I'm walking. Haha. The wires seem to be softer than what I'm used to with my Cleo bras so they don't lay flat. If I press the gore down, I get quadding. Also the straps seem to be too wide and I feel like they force my boobs away from my center chest and almost flatten them? I'm still going to give this one a try with a tight shirt and maybe that will improve things.
The cups are a bit large for me at least on my smaller side. I get some wrinkling if i don't have the straps tight. I also feel as if the gore is a bit wide giving too much separation. I think I can easily fix all my issues though. I plan to alter the cup near the gore and also make the gore a bit narrower. This will be my first at alterations, but I think it should be fairly easy since it's not a molded cup.
The color is a bright magenta with a brown lace overlay. The band fits nicely and is not as tight as the contoured version of the Angelina. The cup depth is nearly perfect, and I am not experiencing any gaping at the top or wrinkling at the bottom of the cup. My only two issues are the width of the bra itself across the front (it digs into my armpits) and the width of the wires (over an inch of space between my breast tissue and the wire under my arms).
The Angelina is a beautiful bra. It fit in the band (this was a little snug, but I suspect this would loosen up a smidge with wearing, and really a smidge would be all I'd need), and too big and too wide in the cups. Decided it was simply the wrong size for me.
I thought this bra would be a sexy bra that you can wear every day, but after trying it on, I think it's a bedroom only bra. The cups are made of two layers, the lace overlay which is black and an underlayer which is grey. In terms of construction, it seams like each cup is made of one piece of fabric and one seam to form the shape, as opposed to having several pieces to create the shape.
Pros: - I like the colour scheme and the lace - I like the keyhole detail - It's unpadded (I prefer unpadded bras) - It feels comfortable - The band feels nice and firm. Comparable to other bras I own and that fit me with the same band size.
Cons: - The cups are made of a stretchy material so it's not very supportive - There's not really any lift - The centre gore is too wide for me
Overall, nice to look at but otherwise not too great.
