I’ve had this bra for years and at one point it went to live with my sister, only to come back my way. I don’t have the exact model number or name since they’ve been cut out long ago. What I love, the straps are very comfortable and lay flat in the back where they connect to the backband. There are little daisies along the straps. The cups are moulded and give a very nice natural rounded shape under clothing. The fabric is smooth with tiny little printed dots on it. What I don’t like. The cups are too shallow for my very projected breast. I do get ...some quad boob along the top because of my very round shape. The sidewings are short, so I get some boobage escaping. The band also doesn’t sit against my ribs and floats at the gore. If the cups were less shallow I don’t think I’d have an issue. This bra came with a halter strap attachment. I’m clearly too short, or high-boobed, for this to actually fit the way it was intended. Overall this is a fantastic bra if you have a more natural breasts shape. The quality is really good. Even after all the traveling this bra has done it’s still in fabulous shape and not all shot-out. Read more 110 more words
Beautiful and super comfortable semi sheer bra with four part cups (including side support panels) made of double layered sheer printed mesh. The upper 1'' of the cups is trimmed with stretch geometrical lace and lined with elastic band at the outer end. The straps are fully adjustable and partially sheer aswell. I specially like the very flat worked seams which work pretty well with fitted clothes, if the fabric has some weight to it.
The shape on my FoB Breasts is definitely rounder than than with other unpadded offerings from Prima Donna Twist. But the cups are on the closed side, even if more forgiving as in the 65F - Prima Donna Twist » Bang Bang Underwired Bra (0141511) due to the stretchy upper part, and will not work for everyone.
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.
Beautiful padded seamless bra in a very rich burgundy red. It works pretty well as an T-shirt option although the lace overlay on cups and straps may show trough thinner fabrics. Due to this fluffy trim the straps are only halfway adjustable.
The center gore is cut much lower than on the Prima Donna Madison Padded Bra (bigger Sizes) (0262121) and sister cuts creating more of a plunging shape. Being rather petite it is still a lot of bra on me but it adjusts very smoothly with my body and therefore is truly comfortable. The upper cup is fairly closed and doesn't allow for ample upper fullness, which isn't a problem for me but maybe for someone more FoT.
I'm very pleased with the quality as always with this brand and I especially love the nicely cushioned wires, something I've been missing on many popular UK brands. If someone knows less pricy options with this feature I'm happy to learn about them.
My favorite bra is 75E - Prima Donna » Madison Balcony Bra (0162123). I had a gift certificate from HerRoom, so I thought I'd splurge a bit and buy another bra from their line—not too splurgy, though, since I went straight for their clearance bras. Although I fit a larger cup size in other brands, I figured E was just my size in Prima Donna, so I ordered the Caramba. Got it yesterday, it totally doesn't fit. I am not sure if it's because it's a full-cup as opposed to a balcony style, or if Prima Donna Twist is slightly different than regular Prima Donna bras. ...The band fit fine, although I was a bit weirded out by a one-hook band style (haven't been in one of those since my early teens). The cups cut in at the top, there was quadding, the gore didn't sit correctly, and I had extra boob out over by my armpit. I am trying to decide if I should exchange or return it, and how many cup sizes I need to go up if I do exchange it (there's an F and an H available, but I think the F would still be too small and the H might be too big). It's a gorgeous bra, I love the black and blue (I have a Cleo Hettie in the same color scheme), but it just didn't fit. Read more 128 more words
I really, really love this bra. The stretch lace and the design is just soooooo pretty. The construction of the bra brings the breasts forward (though my breasts already orient forward). Depending on my cycle, it can produce a quad-boob effect of my right breast since a slightly tight elastic is stitched along the top of the stretch lace. The side of the wires are a tad high but I can deal, especially since the wire width is almost perfect for my breasts. The band is a bit stretchy already, so I wear it on the middle hook. Not the most supportive bra in the world, but that's not what it was designed to be. It's meant to be very pretty, make your breasts look good, and make you feel special.
My very best-fitting bra, although it gives SO much lift and roundness that I often prefer a bra with a lower, more natural shape for day-to-day wear. This is my special bra, when I need extra shaping, although it is comfortable too.
Cut, shape and fit are comparable to the Prima Donna Twist A La Folie Underwired Bra (0141121). With this bra you get a classic three part cup with side support pannels and elastic trimming on the upper part which gives a centered natural shape. The cups may feel a tad more closed op top as in the A La Folie. Quality as always with Prima Donna is great and makes this bra a reliable basic for my FoB chest.
This Caffé Latte colorway works as a nude for me and I do wear it with white and light coloured blouses in the summer. Thanks to the unusual semi sheer strap design I don't even mind showing an occasional glimps of them.
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.

Beautiful high quality and very comfortable bra with a four part cup construction and side support panels. The cups are made of a double layer of semi sheer embroidered mesh and are lined with elastic band on the upper end. I would say they are more on the closed side. The straps are partially sheer aswell and fully adjustable. Personally I enjoy that my breast shape looks rounder here than with other offerings from this brand, for example the Prima Donna Twist A La Folie Underwired Bra (0141121).
If you have worn Prima Donna bras before you should know Prima Donna Twist bras generally run less deep. For me going up a cup size has worked so far.
Interesting bra with unique one hook closure in the back - I never see that in this size. Adorable oversized bow detail and a pattern I really love. So bummed this doesn't work for me. Cuts in on top and a bit shallow
I enjoy this bra and I especially like the adjustable brastraps so that the straps don't show under certain tops. It is an easy colour to wear and is extremely comfortable just as the other Prima Donna Twist's. I did cut of 2 of the bows on the straps because they were showing when I didn't want them but other than that I love this bra.
I believe this is the most comfortable bra that I own. I have had it for about a year now and have never had any comfort issues with it what so ever. I have it in the colour pink and it goes well under all of my clothing. The band has stretched out over time a little bit but not a whole lot and the wires are still in place. I hope I can enjoy my favorite bra for a long time
The style of this bra is different from the others that I own, it has a lot less coverage than the others. It fits perfectly on me however because of the glitter that is on the bra it can sometimes be a bit rough on the skin especially with the straps on your shoulders. Other than that I love the design of the bra which is pretty surprising for a bra in my size. Usually bra's in my size are a bit plain and more focussed on comfort rather than style. The thing I like about Prima Donna is that besides the comfort and the quality of the bra they also like to change up the styles of their bra's and make them more exciting than plain white, black or nude.
I really like this bra,I have various bra's in this particular style(3). The thing I like most about the Prima Donna Twist's is the fact that the cups are pretty closed so that there is a lot of coverage. The only thing that I can think of that I don't like as much as the other bra's I own in this style is the fact that it is bright orange and therefore it can even be seen while I am dressed. Nevertheless I am glad I have this bra
Gives me much better shape under my clothes than other bras I currently have. I think it helps a lot that the straps can adjust as short as you need them, unlike others that have a limited range for adjustment. Very comfortable.
