    I purchased this as a replacement for my long outgrown Bess Balconette. I still prefer the look of the balconette version of this bra. I had hoped it would fit the same as the sister cut Parfait Fiona I have in the same size. Unfortunately Bess is much more closed on top so I do get some quadding, especially near the gore, almost the exact opposite fit I have with Fiona. The somewhat poor fit does give me more of a cleavagy look than I usually manage which can be nice. The texture and quadding can show through shirts though. It's nice to have around as a fairly comfortable white bra, but if the Fiona fits you well, I wouldn't recommend Bess.

    Beautiful bra. Runs small in the band. Probably needed a 32 D on this bra. Perfect for wide set shallow breasts. Gave it away.

  3. Beautiful bra but it has a very pointy and east/west shape.

    It's lovely, just not the right shape for me. I think it's an "orange in a glass" type of thing going on despite other parfaits working for me. It's adorable and has great silky fabric but just not a good shape for someone who's really shallow

  5. This is for the pink Bess. Please see my review on the cream. This is exactly the same. They are both beautiful, but at this point, not a good fit for me.

  6. As soon as I saw this bra, I wanted it. It's very pretty. I would have preferred to get the pink, but it was hard enough to hunt this down in my size in any color, but I was able to get the cream/coffee color. This is a satiny bra in the cream with a floral design in the coffee color. Of all of the Parfait bras I have tried, I would say this is my least favorite. Here's why: I think it gives me kind of a pointy boob look, with the pointy being almost outward, and who wants their boobs pointing out ... to the sides? Not me :D That being said, it's not horrifically so, and with clothing it did not seem quite as pronounced I didn't think. There is a very pretty 3-button column on the center gore, a different touch than a bow or something like that. It goes along with the styling very well. As with other Parfait bras in a 30FF, there are 3 rows of hooks and wider straps. I would guess that the 30F would have 2 hooks and narrower straps, like others I've tried. The cups have what I guess you would call pleated or folded detailing that goes side to side across the cups. This does show through t-shirts, but thicker shirts/sweaters I think would be fine with it. I'm not a big sweater girl, so I don't know that I'll get a ton of wear with this one, but I like it too much not to keep it. I think I need to buy stock in Affinitas to offset all of my purchases...
