Boobs: Wide-set, mostly even, slight FOB, average projection, tall, broad-shouldered.
The Parfait Kimberly is another strapless bra in the hoards of strapless bras that suffers from collapsing on itself. By collapsing I mean wrinkling at the bottom due to the lack of supporting structure given (to regular bras) by the straps. This resulted in an unfavorable wrinkle despite being able to fill the bottom decently. However, it isn't that noticeable (at least to me) and is undetectable underneath clothes.
The Kimberly gore is determined not to tack. I believe this to be a design issue rather than a unique fit issue, as I see all of the other posters ... have the same problem. The gore is low and fairly narrow--it is just not going to lay flat. The bra gives great cleavage with a surprising lack of quadboob. The shape of the bra pushes breast to the middle, contributing to tackless gore.
The band is tight as all hell, which is expected. General Parfait rule of thumb is to pretend the bra band is 2" less than what the tag says.
I like the aesthetics of this bra. Very... Victorian? I can't really describe the exact style. I've never seen that combination of aesthetics before, which makes me feel kind of proud to own it.
All in all a solid strapless. Does it fit 100% correct? Of course not. No strapless ever will. Unless bra makers figure out a viable and wearable way for the bra to support itself on the bottom half of the cup, straplesses are going to have a slight droop and wrinkle. I have found that sizing down in the cup gets rid of that problem, but with the sacrifice of breast containing via quadboobery.
