I'm finding that plunge/tshirt bras are never going to work for me because of how center heavy I am. I think this bra is also made for shallower breasts, similar to the Casey- which mine are decidedly not. I don't fill the bottom of the cups (Parfait by Affinitas is the only brand in which this happens) and while I quadboob near the bottom/center, there is empty space at the top. It is definitely the wrong shape for me. The straps are on the thicker side, which is nice, as is the molding. It's not enough to be called padded but it holds its shape quite well. The little bow/heart pendant at the gore is kinda cute. Other than that, it's a very plain bra.
I size up from my usual 32 as the band for this brand run tight. Visually, it's beautiful. Comfortable as well. But, sadly, due to my inner fullness, I was experiencing major spillage after a couple of hours of wear.
I may have gotten some bad intel on this bra. I was stuck between this one and the Parfait By Affinitas Casey (2801) ; coincidentally they both went on sale for about half the original price, so I decided to try both. I read a ton of reviews on a bunch of sites that said the band ran tight and the cups were small, so I decided to get a 30G (I was resized at a 28G and recently I've been branching out into 30FFs and having some success there as well). The band fit fine, but the cups felt a little too large, and the ...straps were spaced much too far apart for me--even after adjusting them to the right length and getting everything settled, it just felt really uncomfortable, and the straps just felt...wrong. Like, 'my shoulders hate me right now and I don't know if I should be shrugging or slouching to make this feel better,' wrong. On top of that, the outer edge of the cups cut in under my arms (at first I thought it was the underwire but it's the cup itself), and the inner edge of the cups come up too high to be worn under my deep v-neck tees, which is what I bought the bra for in the first place. It didn't give me much of a cleavage boost, but it also didn't push me out to the sides or flatten me, which was nice. If not for the fact that the plunge isn't quite plunge enough, I'd try it in the 30FF.
Appearance-wise, this is good, plain bra. It's got a little charm on the gore, but that's about all the decoration you get. It's nice and simple, smooth against the skin and under shirts, and it looks to be of very good quality. Unfortunately it just won't work for my purposes. Read more 205 more words
I actually have worn this bra a decent amount. It's a little bulkier than I'd like but mostly because it's a little big and I prefer non molded bras. This creates good cleavage but not popping out of a person's shirt. And parfait bras have less gapping, maybe the cups aren't as tall, as I typically get with molded cups. The gore does start stabbing me at a certain point.
I really like the style of this bra. The cups are probably not a perfect shape for me, I get a little gaping at the very top near the straps but it's not an issue for me. Wires are a good length but holy hell are they firm. It's probably the hardest wire I've come across. I was able to adjust the shape of the wire with my hands but for a second I thought I'd need pliers. The bra is a little too wide set at the top, not sure if that will be a deal breaker yet. The band is a bit tight, also. I really ...love the 3 hooks, I don't find it very often in my size range but I can feel the extra support, and it doesn't give me as much back pudge as 2 hook bras. Because I have soft tissue and this is a plunge, it almost looks like I'm about to spill out of the center. I'm not, though, and I actually like it because it actually gives me a semblance of cleavage which will be great for lower cut shirts. The straps are also very hard, which will hopefully lessen with washes and wears. All in all, very beautiful, mostly comfortable. Read more 103 more words
This bra's band wasn't as giving as other 30 bands I ordered. However, the rest of the bra fit well, so I purchased an extender. Setting it on the tightest hook of the extender made it perfect, and now that I've owned it for a while, it's stretched enough to wear without it. If I bend over, there is some spillage out the middle, but I'm guessing that's more of an effect of plunge style bra + close set/pliable boobs. Upright, my cleavage looks amazing. Ha.
I am 26", 33"...round, even, wide shoulders, very close-set but wide boobs.
The material is very nice and the cups are sturdy yet soft and flexible. I wish the cups had less coverage because it's pretty useless for my shape. Not low enough for low-cut tops. I heard the band runs tight in this brand and it's not terrible, but not tight enough for me to wear it on the regular. I like to sleep in this bra.
Seems to fit better now than it did when I first bought it, I think because more tissue moved into my boobs to hold the band down, as it was sliding up when I first got it. But it still isn't as supportive and parallel to the floor as I would prefer. A comfy bra though! No pain. I would recommend for real 30DD wearers and maybe real 28E wearers. But not 27" or below.
