I'm a little conflicted about this bra, because it has so many pros going for it:
It's totally cute looking. It's got a lovely lace detail along the top of the cups, a little fancy-pants button detail, some also-cute seaming on top of the cups, and it's a really great dusty rose color, which is functions as a beige under clothes but just looks nicer in general.
However, the con is really just one, but it's almost significant enough to make it a deal-breaker:
It's a padded bra. Or rather, I guess in bra parlance they would call this a molded cup. It's not even super-thick but ...the point is that there is extra stuff between my boobs and my shirt than just a thin piece of fabric, and it kind of bothers me. Moreso because the shape that the cups are molded in is juuuust slightly off. The bra's cups seem to point slightly outward - the apex is right where the vertical seem design is, but my own personal apex is just slightly inward from there. Or perhaps the cup is slightly pointier than I am, when viewed from above? Even though, I have pretty soft breast tissue and I do conform to it, so it doesn't cause any major fit issues. There's just something a little strange about it, and the fact that I and the foam are not an exact match, and the fact that it feels a little like armor, are exactly what I don't like about padded/foam-lined/molded bras.
That said, should this be a deal-breaker? I don't know. I don't have any remotely nude colored bras, and this is a particularly nice specimen. I really like the stylistic details. Technically speaking, aside from the minor cup peculiarities, it definitely fits. And should every girl have at least one padded bra in her arsenal for some reason or another? I'm going to sit on this one a few days and think about whether I want to keep it. Read more 236 more words
I've been looking at this bra for weeks now and finally decided to get it. Unfortunately, it is a shape miss-match for me. As you can see from the pictures, there is empty space in the top front of the cups that my shallow shape can't fill. This model seems to be for those with more projection at the top then I've got. I was also a little disappointed by the color. It seemed much brighter blue on the website were I bought it. In real life, it is a darker satiny blue that is still pretty but not what I was looking for.
The band fit true to size and was very comfortable. The wires were fine for my somewhat wide roots and the gore didn't bother me at all. The straps on this are only half way adjustable, but are very comfortable. The cup is thin and molded. The wings have thin, flexible boning in them that is very comfortable.
A lovely bra for someone, but not a good fit for me. It's being returned.
Firm band, just does not work with my shape. I don't know why, but it doesn't give me the rounded shape I usually have in bras, and there is some gaping on top. It's beautiful, but doesn't work for me unfortunately.
I ordered this after trying the 30E and finding that I couldn't fill out the top of the cups. Unfortunately it was the same story with this bra; the shape just doesn't work for my shallow breasts. I needed it taken in at one point in the front to be flatter if it had any hope of fitting me. I also found that this size was painful to wear; the center gore pressed very hard into my sternum. Beautiful bra, well made, gorgeous purple colour, but not for shallow breasts.
I was really excited about this bra because it's a beautiful purple colour, and has matching bikini panties. Unfortunately, the cup was far too big. I couldn't fill it out in the top. The band was comfortable though, and I like that the top of the straps is actually two mini-straps. I ordered a 30DD in hopes that would solve my cup problem, but it turns out that this bra is just not made for shallow breasts. I couldn't fill out the top of the 30DD either, and the gore bruised my sternum. Oh well.
I lovelovelovelove this bra! When i ordered these, i was little bit affreid that cups would be too small. I was really surprised that they fit, because i've read everywhere that this brans has smaller cups than usually. I've found that my band size should be 36 most time, but this 38 feels tight enough and dont stretch too much. I love that cleavage and rounded shape what i get wearing these. I'm just totally in love with these bras.
looked cute online, but in person the pink satin looks cheap and the bra is horribly uncomfortable and ill fitting. This seems more like a 30FF or 30G to me. The strap are half double straps which i hate!
