I picked this up because the Parfait Marion fits me well. Unfortunately, this bra has some of the typical problems that I experience with molded bras.
While it doesn't look too bad in the pictures, there isn't enough projection at the wire for me. Therefore, my breast tissue gets pushed up out of the bottom of the cup. This is exasperated by the firmness of the band because my tissue can't push the band out much. On the upside, the top of the cup is filled out well. However, the line can be sometimes seen under clothes when I move. Additionally, the straps are set too wide for me and the cups cut into my Tail of Spence. The overall effect results in some great cleavage, but it isn't the most comfortable.
I don't plan to keep this bra, but I could see how it would work for specific occasions.
Great bra, beautiful color. I love the minimalistic style. I own the Casey, but it gives pointy boobs. The Jeanie is less pointy. I have lots of center fullness that isn't enclosed by the cups, but I tried this in a cup size up and it was gaping too much. The wires of this bra are short, but are the perfect length for me as I'm high waisted. The band is rather tight for a 30, but I know it'll stretch and be more comfy over time.
Beautiful color, bra feels comfy and fits like my Casey, but the wires are wider. They are the perfect width for my breasts. I need this in 30D because the cups are too deep, but then the wires will be too narrow https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />
The cup on this bra is too big on me, despite Bratabase's recommendation. Fabric is super soft, the gore does not come up too high to squish center breast tissue. Band seems to run true to size. Just wish it fit!
Everything fit on this one except it gaped when I 'slouched'. Gore was low enough not to sit on breast tissue, hence not as much center support, and consequently gave butt cleavage. I would have kept it if it weren't for the gaping.
The cups ran about 1/2 size large on this bra. The band seemed wide too...I laid it next to my other 30 band Parfait Affinitas bras and the band is longer. The cups are also larger than the 30Es (aka 30DDD) by PbyA that I own! I exchanged it for the Casey style instead and it fits much truer to size.
Update: I still stand by my statement that this bra fits. However, it only truly fits when I'm standing perfectly still with my shoulders back after I've just put it on. The minute I move or bend over, the cups stay in their shape and pop away from my chest. Makes for a slightly awkward fit, but the size is right. It's a comfortable bra to wear, just not my favorite.
I feel like this is the first bra I've found in a very long time that legitimately FITS. I have relatively wide roots and close set breasts with pretty even projection, so it's difficult to find bras that are plunge-y enough to not have a painful center gore while still being supportive throughout, and this bra fits the bill. It doesn't pinch in the center or the sides, and I feel like I can actually fill the cups instead of spilling out to the sides. So happy with the Jeanie!
