  1. I did not want to give up on this bra. I have been searching for an unlined bra made of a knit or cotton fabric that wasn't absolutely hideous. This is pretty much the only one I have found so far (someone, anyone, help me!!). I ordered it in the size that I have had the best luck with at my current weight first (30FF). With the 30FF, the top of the bra cut into my tissue, so I ordered the 30G. I think the fit is pretty great with this one BUT there is a wrinkle on the seam on the right cup. This makes me wonder if the cup is a little too large in this area with a bonus of looking like a nipple through Tshirts. Hmmm. I am not sure, but I want to like this bra so much I might just walk around looking like I have headlights.

    • Thanks for sharing. I, too, have a short frame.

    • ^The comment above was intended for your Deco ;-) Oops.

    • Giggle. The fit looks great! Perhaps washing it will help...? Good luck :-)

      Lol, glad I can help! I thought the same thing about washing. I hope so!! Love4Pollinators

      Just to say, I can only see it on the t-shirt shot because you mentioned it and I am looking for it.

      I see what you're talking about on the bra but not the shirt picture. Otherwise, this looks really pretty!

      There's the Flirtelle Leila Balconette Bra (7301) which is made of a cotton blend knit. There was also the Claudette Cool Cotton Underwire Bra (CD8008) which is discontinued but there's a few listed here and a few on eBay.

    Fits

    I was excited to find a full cup bra in soft, stretchy 100% cotton without irritating seams or edgings, since I am apparently really sensitive to this. Of all the bras I've tried since beginning this Bra-Odyssey, this one fit the best and was the most comfortable. Unfortunately, the softness and give of the fabric wasn't enough support for my 40+ year old boobs, which are so soft they pretty much take on whatever shape they are poured into and are easily mashed by clothes. As a result, I didn't get much lift or projection in this bra under clothes. Because gravity has taken it's toll, I do ... prefer a bit of a push-up effect to give me back at least a little fullness on top, but this bra did not do that. Another consequence of the stretchiness: although I marked the "stretch band length" at 26" -- the point at which the distance between the tips of the wires began to spread, flattening the cup across the top -- the band actually does stretch from 23.5" all the way to 30", which could unwittingly warp your fit if you are above 26".

    Another huge problem with this bra for me was that even through a heavy weight white t-shirt, the contrast between skin color through the top lace panel and solid white cotton in the wavy shaped cup showed right through in a really distracting way.

    In addition, the workmanship of this bra was poor -- wads of thread in spots and bumpy vertical seams that also showed through clothes. It would be worth buying for $10; not for $50.

    For those who are short torsoed, this bra had a very minimal underband width -- just .7 inches including the wire, so the relatively deep gore didn't cause issues, even when sitting.

    I had very high hopes for this bra, it looks so well on the model! Here is what I found, the gore is high and a bit uncomfortable, but I could possibly become accustomed to it as it is fairly narrow. The band can stretch unusually far, but feels decently firm and supportive while new. The cup volume is perhaps slightly large for me, because the seams are rumpled and don't quite lay flat, but the wire width feels nice. The top lace portion of the cup has a narrow rubber elastic strip that digs in a tad on me. It looks rather rough under a t-shirt- all lines and ripples. Overall it's pretty and fairly comfortable.

    The cups ran a bit small in this one for me so I sized up. Lace elastic edge cuts into bigger breast ever so slightly, but not enough to make a difference. My smaller breast has a little extra room so can't size up. The gore dug into my sternum a bit, but this was mostly resolved by bending it back w the help of some pliers for stabilization. The band seems to run a bit snug; think I will try a 34dd. I may keep this anyways-- the first bra I have tried that I can say actually fits!!

      Looks lovely on you!

      I would not size up in this if I were you! The band will stretch with wear and wash! I looks really good and I am glad it is comfy. It looks like you could still push it up into your IMF just a little bitty bit.
      Wanted to note to you that these wires are about the same width as your curvy Kate bras. I think you just prefer a more full coverage, taller side wire/wings than the curvy Kate bras you have tried.

    • LeProfessor, I think you are right about preferring fuller coverage. I have always worn full coverage bras. I have worn the VS perfect fit bra for at least 5 years or so, and it pretty much encapsulates your boobs.

      Any recommendations for bras w similar fit/wires that are fuller coverage/higher wings?

    Very slight wrinkling at mid bottom of cup. Lace cut in very minimally at the top of the cup, but is stretchy and wasn't very noticeable.

    Cup didn't quite encompass everything on the sides, so there was some wrinkling. I've not had this problem yet with a bra, so this bra could potentially be geared towards a wider root (I'm more average).

    Band/cup was accurate and material was comfortable. Did not give me any shape though.

    Depending on the shape you prefer, this bra might be better for someone with more rounded breasts as opposed to conical.

    Bra is not lined, so I would feel a little exposed.

    This bra is not owned any more
