It's a very beautiful bronze/copper color with black lace. The cups are padded, not quite as much as a push up, but more than a t-shirt bra(?). The lace, while pleasing to look at was getting a bit irritating because it wraps around to the inside edge of the cup. But maybe that's because the straps were too tight?
The band isn't the tightest 32, I can wear it on the second column.
I love that it's convertible, so I can change the straps to cross the back.
This bra is gorgeous! It has a pretty metallic fushia colored background with a light icy-pink lace overlay on the cups, along the front of the bra around the wires and extends a bit along the wings. The rest of the wing is made up of a very soft silky nylon fabric that feels wonderful against the skin. Everything about the inside of this bra is soft and smooth. The inside of the cups and straps are extremely soft and don't irritate. The cups are plush and padded in a graduated fashion, with the thicker padding toward the bottom to give a beautiful lift to the breasts. It gives a nice rounded shape and provides wonderful cleavage in lower cut tops. There is a pretty pink bow at the gore with a small crystal tied to each end. It has 3 sets of 4 hooks, which make it feel incredibly stable and supportive against the back. I love this bra! But sadly, it doesn't fit me.
This bra is gorgeous!! The materials are very pretty. It's a metallic copper color with black lace overlay that extends a little bit out onto the wings and along the front bottom edge, making it look very pretty. The rest of the wing is made up of a very silky soft nylon fabric. There are 3 rows of 4 hooks on this bra which help make it feel very stable and supportive on the back. The hook closure is slightly padded so it doesn't dig into the spine. There is a thin bow at the gore with a tiny crystal at the end of each side. The inside of the bra is super soft and plush against the skin. The padding is graduated, being thicker at the bottom and thinning out as it reaches the top of the cup. This really helps to lift the bust and give a beautifully rounded shape with excellent cleavage. This bra is a stunner! Sadly, it didn't fit me.
This bra claims to be a 34H, which in Parisa's system translates to a UK 34FF. However, this bra is easily two cup sizes too small once the padding comes into play. This bra is heavily padded, and pushes the breasts up and in. However, the outer shape of the bra has the cups pointing out and to the side. This creates an incredibly strange flat front, with tons of tissue spilling into the middle.
I'm not sure if that shape would happen in someone who fits the bra. It's a shame, because the color is utterly goregeous, and the entire bra seems to be well-built. The wires seem to be a bit wide, as the bra doesn't lie flat when the band is clasped.
Ok! So, this was my first attempt at buying a bra with the 'US' sizing. The site I ordered it from said that a G-cup in the US sizing was equivalent to an F-cup in the UK sizing. My 38E and my 36F are probably my most comfortable bras at the moment (my 36FF Deco might be just a tad roomy) so I decided to give the G-cup a try first.
Note that this IS a push-up bra - I was going to try a little surprise for the husband with this one and it came close to achieving the desired effect. But whether this brand runs a little ...small, or just because there is added padding in bottom of the bra cup - it is a little small for me. I have boob spilling out the center and as a result the gore doesn't tack against my sternum. I wouldn't have minded a little spillage if it was over the top of the cups, but it just doesn't look the part with breast oozing out the center. Just looking back at the bras I've previously measured ti seems that the ones that fit me best all have a roughly 11 inch cup depth; this one is closer to 10 inches.
Depth of the cups aside, I love the look of the materials this is made from. I ordered the Wild Orchid color. It is a little more pink than purple, but the fabric has a sheen to it and a great texture. The lace is lovely and is very securely attached as an integral part of the bra; not tacked on as an afterthought as I've seen with some companies. The inside of the cups is made with a wonderfully soft fabric and the wires are well contained; no poke!
The 4 hooks per column on the band seems a little overkill, but I appreciate the wide band holding everything in. It is worth noting that the lower portion of the band is stretchier than the top due to the lace arching along the top of the band. The lacy portion doesn't really stretch at all.
I'm exchanging this for the 36H cup version (UK 36FF) and we'll see if that helps the fit issues. Read more 264 more words
