Balconette with 3-part padded cups. Padding is thick, but not completely stiff. Outer fabric is matte and insides of cups feel cotton-y. Embroidery detail is in a gold color (more matte than shiny) with a circle/wheel design along the tops with scallops at the edge. Matching bow at center gore. I think the sides are some kind of powermesh. Straps are also blue with plastic blue hardware; they are elastic, but not super stretchy. Hooks and eyes are blue and are in sets of 3. Elastic runs along entire bottom edge.
~~~~~~~~ Not going to go into too much detail. Basically, this bra is typical fit for Parfaits on me: too wide, too shallow, and too tall.
I bought it hoping to help find my Parfait size. It helped confirm that I probably will never have a Parfait size. Their size/shape scheme just won't work for my boobs.
The cups run a little small, but sadly there's no one cup size up for the 30 band and they don't make 28 bands. It is very lightly padded, which is exactly what I need (really don't like bras that is too padded nor just fabric.). Very comfortable and no push-ups. It provides full coverage, and the band is pretty thick so it gets your back fat smooth out pretty good. Overall it's a pretty good bra.
The color of the bra is beautiful!! the band is very comfortable, feels like a true 30, i like how secure it makes me feel, it has three hooks wich is very nice and makes the band feel more snug (in my opinion) the strap separation is a little wide, but i have narrow shoulders and to tell you the truth it does not bother me that much, the straps are really soft and you can adjust them all the way. The cups have a really nice embroidery wich shows just a little over clothes, but is ok. Love how soft this bra is!! The only thing that i dont like very much is that the seam that goes horizontaly makes my boobs look a little pointy, not that much, just a little. The lift this bra gives me is amazing!! overall a great fitting bra!!
I have this in the blue and black. Band is snug and doesn't loosen after extended wear. Fits just like the Parfait Saffron padded bra. As usual for Parfait bras, the tag says 70DD for INTL/China, but when I try to enter it in it won't let me, it says that it is invalid.
Why, you ask? Because it is so damn adorable. I feel the construction on it is better than the Cleo bras. Rather than two flimsy hooks in the back, there are three good hooks. The band feels firm, not quite as stretchy.
AND IT DOESN'T FIT. I bought it online but GUESS WHAT they were using US cup sizes. Having it come in as a UK G was a rude surprise. :'(
A beautiful, comfortable bra. I think I'd fit a 36F a bit better, as my breasts don't quite fill the cups, but everything else seems to fit so well that I'm worried to try and exchange it! Very stretchy band. Good for breasts with a wide root.
Doesn't quite fill up the top--close, but not quite. Strange shape--the lined portions make that area lie flat and at an angle, instead of rounded. Fits wonderfully around the sides. Band is strangely short; I can hook the third hooks, but that's it. The gore doesn't lie flat, but it's close; the sides are pressed in, which narrows the seperation between the breasts. Lovely colors. Comfortable fabric.
