    Didn't fit

    A beautiful bra by Pour Moi but sadly, a little small on me. The band was TTS but the cups definitely run a little small and I am not sure going up a cup size will fix the fit for me ---> insert sad face πŸ˜” The wires are a little wider than I am used to so I get a more east west shape plus flattening. Weirdly my smaller side is giving more quadding than my larger side. Not visible from the front but for those who like this bra, I recommend your regular band size and size up in the cup. I am a FOB, soft and pendulous shape for reference. Thankfully this was on sale so I will keep it as returning to Brastop is too expensive. If another color goes on sale I may try the cup size up.

      Gorgeous!!!! Wow!! That gore looks painful.... How does it feel to you?

      Pretty design, too bad it's not fitting like you want it to!

      Not that you shouldn't keep it; but a tip that's been totally enabling my international (bra)shopping:
      If you buy through PayPal, they will refund your return shipping. Up to $30 per parcel and up to 12x a year... πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ Life-saver for me!

      Love4Pollinators Actually the wires are pretty soft surprisingly so what is most annoying is it floating and my tissue won't stay put!

      Beautiful bra, and SO sexy!!! :)

      So, do you think the lace extension in the middle under the gore would stay put with wear, or would it start to curl? Also, does the lace extend onto the band?

    • I've stared at this bra on figleaves several times and always figured it would be very shallow at the underwire! Is it?

    • 1

      Wanabee Thanks! Actually I do think it will stay put. I had no issues with it moving :) The lace extends to the sides but not all around the entire band.

      lcl0706 It is a little shallow at the underwire. I did a bit of squishing to fill it! The cup size is a little small though so I do think a cup up will be a little better. I caved and ordered one in the pink/red as Pour Moi has a 40% off sale this weekend for Black Friday. Use code "BLACK40". Makes this bra really affordable in all the colors!

  2. Flamenco Long Line Underwired Top (9601)

    32G

    Didn't fit

    Bikini season has started and Flamenco has been beckoning me since summer 2015.. The vibrant print, the retro style, the quirky bow - so cheerful! So I jumped on it in a recent Pour Moi sale, got it for Β£11,60.

    This is quite a short longline, the shortest part is just an extra 3 cm under the wires.
    The 3 part padded cups are shaped to give a somewhat pointy vintage-y silhouette, that I happen to like. It's too shallow for me so the gore floats, this style stops at G while I could have used a 32GG. But for an afternoon on the beach or by the pool, I ... think it's fine!

    The 32 band seems true to size, while in other Pour Moi 32 bands I've experienced a tighter fit. For a bikini it fits very comfortably though; and in swimwear I generally prefer to size up from my normal 30 band (ribcage measures 76 cm / 29.9 inch snug).

    Some minor flaws:
    The removable straps are a bit short (not a regular problem for me). So I wanted to make a cross-back but that won't happen. Also, the clips where the straps attach cannot be trusted. They randomly decide to detach by themselves - so I'll definitely add some stitches.
    Lastly, the short longline band tends to fold under the cups. No disaster but it can look frumpy and rubs a bit.

    However the colours are so rich, I love the print, it is well-finished and the quality seems fine.
    Matching tie side briefs I bought separately on Figleaves for Β£5. They fit well in size 14 (forgiving fit because of the side ties).

    All in all I really like this piece of swimwear and I'll surely enjoy it this summer β˜€οΈ

  3. Amour Padded Bra (1500)

    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!! :)

    • 3

      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! ^_^

    • 2

      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!

    • 2

      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.

  4. Geometric Underwired Bra (5702)

    36F

    Fits

    This model in this size was (at least it was two weeks ago -- that bit of information seems to have disappeared now) indicated to have either a similar cut or similar measurements to one my strict recommendations (I'm guessing either the Cleo Marcie Balconnet in 34G or the Minnie, or possibly the Panache Jasmine Balconnet in 34GG). While the band does not ride up at all, leaves fairly deep indentations in my skin and occasionally squeezes my ribcage too tight, I still can easily fit a whole hand under the band. And it mostly feels okay. Then, I don't know if this part is ... important or not, but I also occasionally notice the band actually rolling up underneath the underwire in front. No idea what that means.
    The cups, however, are definitely a little too big. There is always at least a little wrinkling and puckering in the top half of the cups. Sometimes it seems like adjusting the straps to fix this only exacerbates it and increases the chance of the band riding up. And then I'm not sure what kind of fit issue this indicates, but I've been noticing a lot of chafing from the top corners of the cup the past few days. I also definitely see less cup wrinkling when that's happening.
    Overall, this feels like the closest thing to a bra actually fits since I started using Bratabase, and possibly the closest ever.
    Update: The past week or so I've been experiencing a growing pain in my ribs just about where the band sits on my right side. It started as a stinging sensation but has progressed to a definite ache. The weird thing is there's no physical evidence of injury when I look -- no scrapes, bruises, etc. I'm working on getting new recommendations now.
    If you can't find a bra in your strict recommendations at a decent price point or whatever, is it better to turn to not-strict recommendations or to the models that are said to have the same measurements or same cut as a strict recommendation?

    December update: The pain subsided and has returned once or twice, but only briefly. I've gained 10-15 lbs since August, so I now entirely fill the cups and have no complaints about fit, yay! And this wasn't even a recommendation. But shortly after I realized it fits better, it went missing.

    Didn't fit

    I really wish this bra would fit better but alas, I concede defeat as this is the larger cup to my other try! It's just not made for my soft and pendulous shape. If you like this bra it will fit a firm and more round shape. The gore does not tack, I have quadding on my larger side and the wide wires flatten and give me an east west shaping. Other than not suiting my shape this bra has very pretty details in the lace overlay and strapping that are very nice for the price of this bra. So if you have the right shape, it's definitely worth looking into as Pour Moi has many colors in this Obsession style! πŸ’•πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘

    Measurements coming as I'm curious what the cup depth is compared to the FF.

      Roxanne, that is interesting.

      And I have never noticed the comparison method. So I had to figure out how to compare bras. Here is the comparison I was thinking abou, http://www.bratabase.com/bra/di62y/vs/bra/dihdu/

      I always thought Elomi Caitlyn was a "wide wires" bra, but compared to this Por Moi, is is narrower and deeper. I'll have to think about that.

    • 2

      Pour Moi has not sized up to the larger cups very well at all! Elomi does a better job of increasing their sizing cup wise. My one Elomi I have in a FF is the same cup width but much deeper cups. Some brands do not size up well and Pour Moi is one.

    Hasn't set fit

    Decent quality, bra is quite pretty- the main reason of purchase.
    Look of bra is pretty but the material is not super smooth like cotton. This is not to say wearing would cause any discomfort, but the look seems almost semi-plastic, hence the "Good" rating of Appearance & quality.
    The band is bigger than ordinary 30 bands, and verges on 32.
    Comfort rating is also, "Good" as it was decent enough but as the band was on the loose side, and the bra did not give a, "WOW, AHMAZING! " feeling.
    I am not of this bra size, which is why I am selling despite it not having been worn, only tried.
    For somebody else, this bra would probably be more of an, "EXCELLENT", depending on style preference.
    The best thing is definitely the pretty, flowery, grey & pink look of it.

  7. St Tropez Full Cup Bra (7702)

    34J

    Didn't fit

    I finally decided to take the plunge with Pour Moi . Their bras are pretty, affordable, and come in a variety of styles. I picked St. Tropez because I've realized recently that I have some inner/center-fullness and benefit from a taller gore, and I'm really in need of a bra I can move around in at work.

    I have no complaints about the quality of the bra. It's certainly not made from luxury materials, but it doesn't feel cheap either. I would compare it to my Cleos. The fully adjustable (!!) straps are lightly lined with a soft material (felt?); not lined as well as Panache ... bras in GG+ cup sizes, but certainly an improvement over the jack squat you get for lining in a Curvy Kate bra. One thing to note about the construction, at least for this particular model and colorway, is that the embroidery is mirrored on the inside of the top portion of the cup. The fabric and thread is pretty soft, but could easily bother someone with sensory issues and/or sensitive skin. I think the bottom portion of the cup has an extra layer of mesh that the top portion does not.

    The band is close to TTS, maybe slightly big and certainly stretchy. If you are in between band sizes I would choose your smaller size. There was plenty of room at the wire and quite a bit of projection...especially considering the only thing that really matters in this review: the fact that this bra runs at least a cup size big. Seriously. I am comfortably a J cup, and having been a GG-J cup for most of my adult life, putting on a bra that is huge in the cup is a novel experience. It was big all over. The gore wouldn't tack, I could stick my hand in the outside of the cup, and poke at all the loose fabric at the top of the cup. I'd say I filled out the bottom of the cup fairly well, and again, there really was quite a lot of projection considering how big it was.

    I think the wires are somewhat soft, but it was hard to tell with all the other fit issues.

    I've reordered in a 34HH - I'm hoping for less cup volume and a similar or slightly shorter band. Some colorways are on pretty deep discount at Figleaves and on eBay, and on sale but not as cheap from Bare Necessities, so it's a good time to try. Overall I'm glad I finally gave this brand a chance and I'm hopeful about the 34HH!

    • I've read a handful of reviews saying it ran true to size (there aren't many reviews in general out there), but this about lines up with my experience. Mine ran about a full band size big and 1-2 full cup sizes big as well. Which color did you get?

    • This bra is the midnight colorway, a dark blue or navy color. The 34HH I have on the way is the mint colorway. I was hoping to stick to the same colorway but I'm on a budget and wanted to stick with what was on sale.

    • I would say it's fair to describe the band as TTS but a lowly candidate for getting stretched out. The cups, not so much.

    • This saddens me so much. :( I love how this bra looks and I've been wanting it for so long. I guess I'll find something else.

    • Incredibly sad. I've loved the look of this bra online, especially the red. Oh well.

    • Another great review! Thanks for the warning!

    • It might work better for someone else, especially for smaller bokbo that are pretty self supporting. I doubt that it'll look really good on anyone but it may look a lot better than on me.

    • If the only breasts that will look okay in this bra are perfectly full, round, self-supporting ones, the Pour Moi Addicted is almost pointless. Maybe if this were the only bra left in the universe, the Addicted would have a use. I'm totally turned off from Pour Moi now. I am grateful for your review, because that saves me the time and expense of buying and returning.

    • learningaboutbras I can't sweat that no other breasts will look good, but I think it's quite unlikely for most of us. I think you should try it if you really want to, but yeah, I'm on the same page with you on Pour Moi, I've tried three different bras and two or three bikini tops and they have all had something in the construction that were just off, like, just a bit better constructed that Asos house brand (and that's very bad). You get what you pay for, I guess. It's just a shame that the only really edgy budget bra for bigger cups is such a waste of fabric. I mean, if Panache or Curvy Kate or even Freya would do something similar I'd be doing somersaults of Joy.

      I'm not a fan of the wide straps of the Ewa one (I think it's sort of wierd to put those wide straps on a 'sexy' bra, as they're not very sexy IMO). Otherwise I think it's genius to allow the wearer to alter them!
      Can't wait to see what price point KH ends up at, hopefully it'll be cheaper than Bosom Galore was.

    • 1

      bonjourhi , that's.. not an appropriate thing to say about someone else's body.

    • Yeah, some people's breasts can be 'self supporting' on their own, and some people's with implants aren't. A lot of girls get comments like this in real life a lot ("wow, are those real?!" Etc) and they come here to escape comments like that and speculation about their body.

    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.

  10. St. Tropez Full Cup (PM-7702)

    I first got this bra in a 30HH, but it was too big in the cups; the 30H is just perfect. Though a little big in the band (I just got it and I can wear it on the tightest hook, no problem; it doesn't ride up when on the loosest hook, though) the size and shape are pretty perfect for me otherwise.

    Pros: Nice, natural shape; not too round and not too pointy.
    Great support and coverage without being matronly; can wear with fairly low-cut tops.
    Relatively narrow wires- comparable to my Freya bras. Most large cup bras have wires too wide for my boobs.
    Comes in beige, so I can ... wear it under light colored clothing!
    Straps are fairly narrow and inconspicuous, so it won't look tacky under a tank top.

    Cons: Apparently is the only Pour Moi style that currently comes in this big a cup and this small a band. (28 bands only go up to G.) So I can't exactly use this as an example for what size to buy in different models by the same brand. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />
    Fabric seems a little scratchy- it's not really itching on me, but if you're sensitive to scratchy fabric you might want to wash the bra a couple times before wearing it.
    The fabric is a little stiff at first; some people might find it itchy.

    - Nice to touch

    Bad:
    - The slightly padded cup doesn't cover my nipples.
    (I guess i need a cup size up)

    - The band isn't very stretchy, so it doesn't hug your body very well.
    When you breath in, you can feel the band restriction. When you breath out, the band may ride up abit.

    I ordered the Eclipse online having never tried out Pour Moi bras before. The gore doesn't tack, yet the outer mesh layer bunches up some at the top of the cup. It's still comfortable, and is a very pretty mint green color in person.

    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.

    Didn't fit

    So there's basically no info on this bra, but it was pretty. Reviews on BN's site say that it runs small in the cup, so I ordered a 38J.

    It didn't fit well, but it wasn't bad? Like, it was wearable. It's wide and shallow at the bottom, but I filled out the rest of the cups okay. It's just not very flattering. It doesn't give much lift, and the bra itself doesn't look very nice while on. Gore is very wide and didn't tack, and the band is waaaay stretchy.

    I really do love the Spice colorway, though. It's a really lovely dark brown-purple-red. Almost like a muted burgundy I guess? It's really nice. Not nice enough to keep, though.

    Hasn't set fit

    My shape: close set, center full, full on bottom, average/narrow width roots, tall shallow roots, soft tissue.

    Cute colorful print is what drew me to try this bra out, that and also trying the Pour Moi brand for the first time.

    General impressions from trying it out is that this sports bra is cute and seems well made. Nice wide elastic straps that can be worn crossed and are fully adjustable. Interior lining is very lightly padded, wires seem comfy, as does the band length on loosest hooks on me.

    Only reason I'm not keeping this bra is because I'm searching for something more for higher impact activities at the ... moment and this is definitely not it. I get a lot of bouncing, much more than my 32DDD - Natori Β» Power Yogi Bra (731050) when I do the bounce test (running in place, jumping). I would consider this bra more suited to lower impact activities, I don't think I would use it for medium impact workouts either. It was a disappointing try on for me since I figured wired sports bra offer should offer more stability (?), obviously this one did not for me. I'm not an expert by any means, so I cannot pinpoint what it is about it construction/fabric that makes it less supportive than what it looks like, but this was my experience with it. Hopefully at least these measurements and review will be helpful to someone else!

  16. St Tropez Full Cup Bra (7702)

    32J

    Didn't fit

    I got this bra from an online shop in my country that stocks Pour Moi up to J-cup (they don't go any higher in any style). I decided to try their most popular style so I could get an idea of the sizing and fit.

    The St. Tropez full cup is a 3 part cup construction that looks more like a balconette than a full-cup. It has quite narrow wires and they don't distort very much. The cups are deep but the most depth is at the apex so they can give a pointy look. They are quite shallow at the bottom and at the center.

    My fit ... issues:
    It's obviously too small in the cups. There is not enough room at the center and also on bottom and I get some quadboob in this bra. The band fits nicely and it's quite stretchy. I found that the bra gives decent support, not like a Panache or Bravissimo bra but better than CK. What I like best about it: the wires are just right for me! I'm surprised that this bra has such narrow wires! I don't know if I should try a 34J and check if the cups fit better but I would have to take the band in on that, since the 32 band feels already stretchy enough.

      I think I remember years ago when people first started buying this on Figleaves they mentioned it ran very small in the cups. They are also a bit cheaply made IMO, I have one Pour Moi and the seam placement isn't exactly haute-couture-level haha. So, I agree this cup is a bit closed/ shallow for you but given our conversations about changing size and shape and the anxiety of sizing down, it's enlightening that you can now almost fit in a particularly small 32J cup volume!
      I think if you used something to reinforce the band a bit, then loosened the straps more and took barbaric measures (i.e. pull like a maniac) to stretch the cup edging, you could probably get this to contain the whole boob and possibly improve the apex alignment situation (which is likely a bit responsible for pointiness).

    • AprilGoulding yes isn't it pretty!?

      wendybien I faced my fear of too small cups and went with my bra calculator size of 32J. I think a 32JJ would be better but I'm also still at my PMS size. I can keep this until next week and see if it fits better once I'm at my "smaller" size again. You really think I could make this work? Or the 34J?

      alisa if you're at PMS size yes I'm pretty sure it will be a workable situation at low tide! This really isn't far off. And the fact the wires are a good match is unusual enough to give it another chance next week!

    My shape is low set, soft, slightly pendulous, and narrow and short rooted. This bra was a shape mismatch, and it was also a size too small.

    The quality of the bra was good in terms of construction, but the material felt cheap to me. The pattern of the material was pretty though. Band felt true to size.

    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. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
    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. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> Will just have to return. Sad!!!

    This bra would be cute if not for the shape. The darting is too low, so the apex of my breasts points slightly down. It's also just slightly too small on me -- the top of the cup cuts into my larger breasts a bit. The material feels solid, at least.

  20. Imogen Rose Embroidered Bra (3804)

    38GG

    Didn't fit

    I bought this bra at a boutique. I wanted something lacy that would be comfortable for regular wear. I'm starting my bra collection over in a new size. I tried on the Imogen Rose along with a few Curvy Kate, Panache, and Freya styles. This one had the loosest band; the Panache styles had the tightest. The bra fits in the cup. It's not my favorite, but it was $20 less than some of the others I tried on, so I got it. The bra is a little torpedo-ish for me and because the band is big, I'm wearing it on the 2nd hook to make sure it ... stays in place. The gore floats a little at the top because of my close-set breasts.

    I did have to make a very minor adjustment to it - the side boning is cheap, overly flexible plastic that bent too much instead of staying flat. The sales person said that this was an issue with some Pour Moi styles and that they usually suggest taking the side boning out. The boutique had an on-site seamstress who handled bra repairs and alterations, so they took out my boning and didn't charge for the extra service.

    Here are my thoughts after wearing it a couple of days: The band is definitely too big because it rides up in the back, even on the second hook. The shape is not the most flattering. I feel like it makes my breasts pointy, but also makes them slope downward. I really prefer rounded shapes. This is the only bra where I've noticed my nipples come far above the mid-seam of the bra. It looks a little weird to me. That said, the embroidery is pretty on the bra and it is lacy/sexy.

    For me, it's very meh. I can wear it on a tighter hook, but it's really not a bra I love. I might consider taking in the band a tiny bit so I can get longer wear out of it.
