I have no godly idea why I spent so much money on this bra when it was "on sale." But maybe I should show it more love. Let's go through the pros and cons...
PRO: It fits very well in the band and upper half of the cup. CON: There is some wrinkling at the bottom sides of the cups because the wires are a bit wide and very soft, even softer than Freya bras.
PRO: My partner finds it really super sexy. CON: Despite all the sexy black lace and the cutesy cutout, I find the full coverage-ness of it to be decidedly unsexy.
PRO: The stretchy ...cup gives a lovely "natural" shape, by which I mean it falls in between the Cleo beach ball look and the unlined Freya shoot-your-eye-out look. CON: That same stretchy cup makes for a lot of jiggle and bounce.
I loved the comfort and natural shape of my black A La Folie so I decided to rebuy it in this black and white colorway. The cups feel a tad looser on this one, but thanks to the stretch lace at the top border they still lay smooth.
With this cut you get the classic Prima Donna three part cup construction with side support pannels for a slightly lower price point. But consider that the cups are less deep (I need to size up one cup size), the material is not as soft and the band only has 1 hook in this size. Nevertheless this bra brings me more in than for example the Prima Donna Couture Underwired Bra (0162581).
Classy side support fullcup balcony bra in a simple and elegant design. The cups are made from firm uni fabric. The embroidered mesh on the upper part of the cups is finished with a small stripe of elastic lace. The straps are wide set and adjustable only in the back. It wears very comfortable and makes a lovely naturally rounded shape.
I like the smooth uplifted tear-drop like silhouette it creates and I feel very nicely supported. The placement of the straps allows wearing wide cut clothes without them cutting into my armpits, which makes it an comfortable and versatile bra. The little bows on the straps can be ...awkward wearing strappy tops, otherwise its a pretty everyday bra.
Unfortunately the gore doesn't always lay flat against my sternum. I don't really think the cups are too small and I've seen other users with similar fitting problems. It's just a very little gap and this bra still feels so good. It is my favourite at the moment despite this tiny flaw. When carefully scooping and swooping the bra fits just perfect.
