It’s a beautiful bra but it really shows through t-shirts. I personally don’t really care about this but I know it’s important for a lot of people. It’s not the best fit for me but after some alterations it’s good enough to wear. The gore was too tall and wide for me and I’ve made it narrower and trimmed down the underwires in the middle so they can’t tack on breast tissue anymore. I need more immediate projection myself but I would rate it as having average immediate projection. The wires are a bit wide for me but I would also rate those as average width. The cups are quite short which is good for my short roots. The straps are set a bit far apart for me so I have to tie them in the back to avoid the straps falling off my narrow sloping shoulders.
Takeaway; Shallow cups While this bra seemed to fit at first, the bottom of the wires dug into my rib cage after wearing for a few hours. I had spillage and some quadboob at the top and I’m FOB! It’s a pretty bra and definitely gives cleavage but it looks super weird under a shirt. Just too shallow for me.
My underbust is 28-30" (depending on tightness of the tape) and the 32 band was a bit too roomy for me. I measured it as starting at 26" and off of my body I can stretch it to ~30" but it seems like it's actually stretchier than that. My bust measures about 35" standing and 36" leaning over.
I don't usually have an issue with straps adjusting long/short enough but this model has really long straps! So this could work for you if you trouble with straps not adjusting long enough.
Inside the padded plunge is a cup with one vertical seam and one horizontal seam. The cup is kind ...of shallow but was still comfortable. It cut in on my bigger side, but the lace and general shape of the cup somehow managed to "hide" the cutting in. I'm debating trying it in a 30F/FF since I had to fully tighten the straps. Wires are pretty stiff - they don't bend with light pressure and would hold their shape if you bent them into a curve.
I love the deep spruce blue-green color. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> Read more 80 more words
