I mean, it's ok. I want to love this bra. I admire the soft fabrics and delicate colors, but the size, underwire width and shape, and strap width are wrong. The overall shape is not east-west, but it's not super forward either. The bottom of the cup is a bit shallow. Buuut I'm so stubborn, I might just try this in the next size down. Also, there are A LOT of absolutely beautiful color options, so if I can make this work, I would be happy. This is TIGHT for a 30!! Max stretch of 28.5 before the underwires start warping. Wires are super ...duper U shape, like almost a half circle. As they are now, they're being pulled an inch behind my roots, directly into the space between two ribs. Feels horrible! As I ordered this from Brastop, I'll probably try to exchange it for a 30DD. Hopefully, with the wires not being as wide, the band won't pull them into my ribs, and the band won't be too short. I'm losing weight but discovering my boobs are higher and at a wider part of my ribs, sooo I don't know what I need as a max stretch. :/ The wire shape will always be too U for me, but hopefully this can be a comfy and pretty lace bra to wear that matches my skin tone in 30DD. *Edit: they don't have 30DD. Will just have to return. Sad!!! Read more 141 more words
This is such good value, I really wanted to love it. Unfortunately it doesn't work for me on a few levels. The cups feel too shallow, the band too stretchy, the gore too separate and the lift just not good enough. It's very pretty, but feels too basic a construction for my soft, somewhat pendulous breasts. For smaller cup sizes or those needing less support than I it could work well. Despite its intricate appearance it gives a good appearance under clothing, the upper lace lying flat against my breast tissue despite the other problems, and the colour is beautiful. Very vivid yet elegant.
I've previously tried this bra in a 32J but it was definitely too big. the 32HH fits fine in the cup and the band, I normally wear a 30J in cleo and I used to wear a 30 in Curvy Kate but I seem to be more of a 32J in the new models. The 32 band in the amour fits well and comfortably. I am not particularly fond of the way this bra shapes my boobs as it makes them look kind of pointy and not very round. my boobs are not very close which normally means that every bra tackles my chest which this one weirdly does not do. I will not keep this bra, although the blue colour is beautiful! the quality does seem to be as good as cleo or curvy kate bras as far as I can judge. In my opinion it resembles the shape I get from freya bras.
It didn't fit me right but at first I didn't care.
I originally bought a Black/Purple 44F to check the fit and loved it. The gore didn't lay flat and it was slightly loose along the top of the cup but not enough to bother me. It gave me lovely cleavage and was very soft and comfortable. It quickly became my favorite bra to wear - so comfortable that I didn't take it off first thing when I got home from work like I always used to do. So I ordered more: Almond, Cherry, White and another Black/Purple.
Well, only the Cherry & Black/Purple fit! The bands have 3 ...hooks in the back (due to the larger size) and they fit the same. But the Almond and White both had thinner bands with only two hooks (not good for a 44F) and the cups themselves were bigger.
So I can see why some reviews recommend changing cup/band size - it depends on the color of the bra. Not great for consistency. But I still loved the bras that I kept.
And then within a few weeks, they all began to have underwire issues, even though I carefully washed them all by hand. I love the bras but hate the underwire constantly stabbing my armpits. And nothing I try fixes the issue. Read more 112 more words
I am in love with this colorway and so sad that it is a little bit too small. (In fact, I kept it when I was substantially bigger in the cup, and it was a much poorer fit on me, just because of how much I love the look of this bra. )
Band is snug for a 32, and firm. Cups are SHALLOW, so you may want to size up in the cup, or cry and relent if you're like me and need more projection than this bra was built to offer.
