As always, Parfait runs a cup and a band small, so this is really like a 28G (UK).
I adore the look of this bra. Gorgeous dark teal color with unusual cream embroidery. Straps are fully adjustable with a pretty scalloped edge.
The fit of this bra is just okay on me. It's a little bit off in a lot of ways...a little too shallow, wires a little too wide, etc. I'm purging my bra collection of anything that doesn't fit perfectly, so it's got to go.
This bra is cut the same as the Charlotte and shares the characteristics of wide and shallow cups, wide and fully-adjustable straps and lightly moulded cups that give a rounded shape. The band also runs slightly small, but not to the same extent as Charlotte. I would say this fits like a 28 band, whereas Charlotte fits like a 26. The cups are also slightly bigger - I wear a 30G in Charlotte and the 30FF in this just about fits (I think I could do with a size between a 30FF and a 30G!). For reference, my 'usual' size is a 26GG.
If you are narrow-shouldered, this is ...a bra to avoid. The straps are very wide set and while I haven't worn this one, the Charlotte is exactly the same and caused me a lot of pain on the first few wears. After this I did find the straps softened up and I can just about get away with it, but it's still not hugely comfortable. I only tolerated the pain because Charlotte is so beautiful, but I don't feel like this one is nice enough to put up with it. Read more 84 more words
It's a beautiful bra of moderate quality. I spill out of the firm, padded cups just a very little bit -- the bra is still wearable. Someone with firmer breasts may not have this problem (mine are quite "compliant" and like to take the shape of their container, and will spill out at the slightest provocation).
The dark teal color is amazing, and the silvery-gray embroidery is gorgeous.
It is also moderately comfortable -- I've worn worse and I've had better.
I've tried this in the 30FF and now the 30G. I like this bra, definitely love the color and detailing. It's comfortable, and like pretty much all my Parfait bras, fits quite well with a great look. The only complaint I have with this one is that in order for the cup to fit my smaller side, I have to adjust the strap a bit and it causes the side of the cup to rise up a bit too high and irritate a little. I just need to find a happy medium I think. The embroidery across the top of the cup keeps it from being a great t-shirt bra, but it's not bad under shirts that are more loose. Overall, another great bra from Parfait by Affinitas.
This is another beautiful bra by Parfait by Affinitas. The color is just amazing. It's a deep teal blue that my pictures can't even come close to showing how nice it is. The embroidery across the top of the cups is in a very pretty silver. This fit much like any of the other Parfait bras and I think it's just that I've gained a few pounds and have gained a little size in the process. It's a very close fit, but enough of a quadboob effect that it just wouldn't look good with clothing. Hopefully I will be able to exchange it for a 30G and a better fit.
