    30E

    Didn't fit

    I'm still trying to get used to 30 bands. After wearing 32s and even 34s for so long, 30s seems a really tight, at first. However this one feels all right to me. My breasts are tall with wide roots and full on the bottom and sides, and that shape seems compatible with this style. I'm a sucker for lace, even if it isn't the most practical under clothing. I have a small amount of quadding in this, which I think is due to the padding maybe. Anyway, I'm pretty pleased with it all in all.

      This is super cute! The hooks seem to be straining a little though, you might want to throw on an extender and this could also help with the quadding. Were your 32s riding up your back? If not, there is no reason to wear bands as tight as you can tolerate--you only want to go as snug as you need to get a secure fit. Leaner and/or more muscular people often need a looser band as there is no protection over sensitive ribs or muscle tissue, unlike a fluffier person. Some people mistakenly believe that buying bras that are too tight at first extends the life of the bra, but the "wearable life" you gain is canceled out by the wear caused by the strain on an overly tight band--the elastic will stretch faster, shortening wearability time.

    • Thank you wendybien , I think I might do that! No need to strain the poor bra until it burst. This one definitely feels a bit more snug than my Parfait By Affinitas Fiona bra! And for the most part, I believe my 32s to be keeping everything right and tight in the rib area (The only time they rode up really is when I had the completely wrong cup size) Only one of them was too loose. I noticed if I shimmied side to side in one of my gap body ones, I could feel the band moving too. It actually was kind of fun! Needless to say that one is gone! I will definitely look into getting an extender though! Thank you for the advice!

      I just ordered a Pour Moi Amour bra, the unpadded version. They're so pretty I hope it works for me!! :)
      One thing I did notice immediately was that in your 3/4 view photo, it appears your breast root is significantly higher than the underwire. Does this bra have push-up pads in the lower portion? If not, I suspect there's a bit of empty space below your breast inside the cup. If you try pushing it up so the underwire sits directly in the IMF, does it want to stay there? If it stays, it should solve the quadding issue, but overall it looks too shallow for your breast shape and it will continually slide down to sit too low on your chest. The bra appears to be trying to flatten your breasts into the chest, rather than lifting and supporting. Not good!
      Even if your roots are wide, since you're FOB, you'll need some bras with more immediate projection near the underwire, that should eliminate empty space at the bottom of the cup. Hopefully that all made sense and this helps!! :)

      Slava-Zone I am such a sucker for cutesy lace, but anyway! The bra does indeed have padding in the lower portion! Thank you for your observations, I did think it sat a little low on my chest! But I didn't consider that and the bra shape together, and the padding together! I will definitely keep my eye out for things with more space at the bottom! For some reason I'm convinced I'm shallow, but I have to keep reminding myself that I am not really that shallow. Thank you very much for your help!

    • 2

      I thought I was shallow for a long time too. I have quite splayed breasts so they kinda hide in my armpits until I lean forward or pull them forward, then I'm like "oh! i DO have boobs!" Finding bras with enough lower projection can be tough, but most padded and molded bras are shallow, so they can almost be entirely ruled out. The padding is supposed to push up, but if breasts are firm or very FOB, they just push the bra down! Yay gravity haha.
      An alternative if you really like push-up is getting a bra with enough lower projection, and make sure the top of the cup is very open, then put a separate pad in the bottom of the cup (foam cookies, silicone or gel pads, even a rolled up sock works!) and it should give a good, rounded push up effect without sitting low on the chest or having the top edge of the cup cut in.
      Glad I could help! ^_^

      Slava-Zone Ahh good to know! My chest is both firm and full on the bottom, so I see where the kinda clinging to the bottom of my chest, smashy smash look comes from! I used to think my chest was really east west, but I realized that it was more a by product of wearing too small cups. (I used to wear 32Bs, then reluctantly switched to 32Cs...then found bratabase) I'm not really wedded to moulded or push up. I do really like plunges though as they tend to be tall enough for me. For some reason, I have this irrational fear of unlined bras... I've seen some lovely ones, but I just think bah your sad little chest with leave those unlined cups withered and empty...but anyway I digress! Thank you so much for the tips! This place has been WAY more helpful than any store I've been visited!

      You're welcome! ^_^ I absolutely love helping others into good bras. Everyone deserves good fit, comfort, and aesthetic appeal!
      You can still have bras with foam in them, just make sure they have seams. :) Like maybe the Comexim plunges would be good for you to try.

    • Slava-Zone Thank you! I really appreciate that! In a world so full of misinformation about bras, its so nice to have good information! I was actually just explaining this to someone in my program. This woman was making fun of another woman, because the woman said she was a C cup. My colleague was convinced that there was no WAY the woman could be a C cup. I told her that its merely a 3 inch difference between bust and ribs. Cup size appearance and volume is based on the band and cup size. Its not static. Not all Cs have the same volume. Despite this she went on about how the other woman's chest is so flat, that even if her C cup fit she was clearly just vanity sizing to feel better about herself....what.....
      Some people will never have a bra that fits, because despite all the information out there they are determined to ignore it.

    30DD

    Didn't fit

    I have very shallow, very wide breasts that are slightly conical/tubular in shape.

    Many reviews here and elsewhere suggest going up a cup size in this bra, and I'm glad I did. The 30D would have been ridiculous. But the 30DD seems simultaneously giant and just right. I think it feels that way because when I shove all of my breast tissue into the cup, it seems to fit very well. But due to the ridiculous amount of pushup in the bra and my natural breast shape, my tissue all falls out the sides pretty quickly, and the cup starts gapping like mad.

    The top of ... the cup, where it meets the strap, is too tall for me and cuts in very uncomfortably at the front of my armpits. The gore is very flimsy, and for whatever reason distorted pretty badly for me. The gore wanted to yaw inwards at the top, making the inside tips of the underwires touch and even overlap one another.

    The overall construction was pretty good. The bra seems like a very sturdy bra; the band was stiff but not too stiff. At a 29" ribcage, I set it on the loosest hook and that seemed perfect. The straps are nice and wide, which is something I don't see very often in my size range.

    To sum up, I'm not sure what kind of person this bra is made for. There's a ton of padding at the bottom of the bra to give your breasts quite a bit of boost, but then the tops of the cups curve inwards a bit and seem to be cutting into the breast tissue on most everyone. This theoretical person would need to have a longer torso than I, and/or lower-set breasts. But if you want to try it, go up a cup volume, and consider going up a band size.

    This bra has a lot of push-up. I would recommend sizing up in the cups because of this. The wires sat somewhat below my IMF, which kind of hurt my ribs. Overall I would say this was a shape mismatch for me. It would be better on someone less FOB, I think.

    30F

    Didn't fit

    Very pretty bra, and the band is quite firm. I believe the volume of the cups are true to size or slightly small, but they are extremely wide and shallow, which makes them fit much smaller. On me, the straps are much too wide-set and the cups are very stiff. It makes it not really alterable or wearable.

    30D

    Didn't fit

    Like most bras with molded cups this bra is very stuctured in that it creates shape. However, if you have very little breast tissue on top like me, you may find this to be an issue. There was a fair bit of gaping at the top and in the part of the cups closest to the centre gore, especially when I sat down. Other than that, and the fact that the straps seemed a little too far apart (I have boney but not particularly narrow or wide shoulders) it was quite comfortable.

    It did not dig in at the back and it fit my underbust in a comfortably snug ... way.

    I would keep it in fact, if it wasn't for the feeling of digging in that I mainly experienced on my right side around the point where my rib cage curves around to the back. This happened after wearing it around the house for about 2 hours. I think this might mean the cups are too wide for me. This may also be less of a problem for someone with my measurements but a less boney underbust area. However, the centre gore was not a problem at all in terms of digging in.

    I believe slightly more breast tissue on top, a more cushioney rib cage area as well as wider roots would make this an excellent fit.

    30F

    Didn't fit

    The most ill-fitting bra I've ever owned!

    It's seriously padded, ridiculously so. I'd say it fits at least a full cup size smaller than an F, possibly two. It's either that, or a serious case of shape incompatibility. It also has the widest wires...they almost wrap around my back! They're also always riding right up my boobs uncomfortably. The band is nice and snug, though despite this, the gore doesn't tack. Additionally, the top of the cup reaches right up into the crevice of my armpit and digs in painfully (I'm quite petite though, so maybe this wouldn't be the case with someone of an average build?)

    A gorgeous bra, but definitely not the one for me!

    32D

    Didn't fit

    My shape: slightly shallow teardrop/FOB with super wide/tall roots and very close-set tissue in the middle.

    This review is for the Morello colorway.


    I bought this bra along with a few others in about april 2013 under the assumption that my boobs were the same as they had been for the previous 3 years (my usual 32C/30D size was sold out so I got this 32D), but I had just been prescribed new birth control and, unbeknownst to me because all my old bras had stretched so much, my breasts had just grown 3 cup sizes. Imagine my surprise when I tried all the new ones on!

    So basically, this was ... the closest one to fitting, which caught me completely off guard. It's still really only about a cup size too small, I think, because my breasts are really self-supporting, and because it's so low and open on top I can almost get away with it in spite of clearly having too much boob there (my roots are very tall). The wires are comfortable under my arms, even though they aren't quite wide enough, but my roots are super-wide anyway, and it doesn't bother me. Also, the gore is so low! My breasts are so close-set, I love low gores. Can't get enough of them.

    The real problem is that the band is too loose, because I really need a 30 or possibly a 28 if Pour Moi? made them in this model. On the tightest hook it's alright, but I've only worn it once, maybe twice ever, and any stretching would make it unwearable without some alteration.

    It's a very pretty bra and I love the raspberry color. I'm still not 100% sure I want to put it up for a swap.

    I bought the size 12 shorts and they also fit lovely. The ruffles are cute! Just don't try to wear them under, say, a linen skirt.

    30E

    Didn't fit

    This bra wanted to sit *really* low on me, which caused the wires to really dig in around my ribcage, and the straps to feel a bit too short, even when adjusted to their limit. Plus, quadboob! Wires were wider than I needed them to be. They were also quite a bit short compared to the wire channels. and insisted on sliding as far as they could from the gore, resulting in even more quadboob near the center since there was nothing there to support the tissue.

    30E

    Didn't fit

    This is the first bra I have tried in a 30E, and I honestly wouldn't recommend it. It is just a very bizarre bra.

    When I ordered it online I thought it was really pretty and reasonable from the picture, which made it look like a small cup. When I pulled it out I found it was HUGE, as if it was full coverage. So, the photo wasn't accurate in my opinion.

    This bra is largely uncomfortable as well. No matter what hook it's on (I really need a 28 so I hook it on the last one, but I've tried them all) the underwires dig into my skin and hurt. They are very high under the armpit as well.

    The cups have a tendency to give me quad boob and gape at the top at the same time.

    All in all, this bra doesn't work for me and fits very strangely.

    Very, very padded. Very, very thick stitching on the cups. Gives super, unnatural appearing cleavage, but I don't know what you could possibly wear it with.
