Parfait reviews seemed consistent re: the gore being divisive, so I was happy to get to try this one on in store. The gore does press firmly but it feels fine to me. The colors and pattern are much nicer in person. Band is on the tight side but not too tight for me. And I fill the cups very nicely with just a sliver of room at the top, not enough to wrinkle. I will definitely stick with this size for unlined Parfait.
Tried this one in the 34F also and that one fits much better for me, the 32FF seems to have a shallower top on the cup but deeper near the center so it was cutting into the top for me but wrinkling all over like it was too big.
The interesting thing about this brand/style is that the FF cup has a 3-hook strap whereas the F cup only had a 2. Amazon said the difference was between FF and G, I believe, so I wasn't expecting either of them to come with a 3-hook strap.
I really loved this bra. It's a really pretty design and seemed to fit the cup pretty well, but I tried wearing it for an hour or so and ended up having the gore dig into my sternum so badly that when I took it off I was afraid it was bruised. So sadly sending it back.
A really pretty bra that I couldn't bear to wear for more than a few minutes. Most pressing issue (literally!) - the band is too tight. I would say this is better for a 32 than a 34. The cup isn't awful, but there is an obvious shape discrepancy - it is too shallow on the bottom, and too open on top, at least for me. Also, the line fabric is a kind of itchy mesh
Beautiful bra that fits wonderfully, but the wires are EXTREMELY thick and stiff. It takes some time to break it in (I've bent it with my hands several times, it's TOUGH), but after that I love it and it's a great bra for sweaters.
This bra was WAY too big for me. For whatever reason, I thought maybe the bigger size might be okay for me, but I was wrong. I generally wear a 28FF/30F.
The gore digs into my sternum really badly. I do like that it has three hooks, feels very secure. It digs into my arms like crazy which is also really painful. I think it is intresting that at the top of the bra, there is a little bit of plastic sewn onto the lace so that the lace top part won't move. I can't say much more about the fit since it was so big, it just all hung wrong making it impossible to tell what the actual problems were.
