I've seen so many pretty and inexpensive Rosme bras on Amazon but never in my size so when I came across this one offered by ebay seller Lavinia Lingerie http://stores.ebay.com/lavinialingerie/ on sale with free shipping I didn't hesitate long. I love the look of it but now I understand why I seldom see Rosme bras in larger cup sizes.
You can see in the front view photo the wire is sliding out of my imf, so it lacks depth at the wire. The overall cup depth is fine though and the band fits well too. Note that although this is a 36 band it ... stretches to only 35". It's probably a good idea to size up in the band when ordering this brand.
This bra has a lot of pretty and quality details. The side support panels are lightly padded. They are of one piece with the front part of the straps, which widen at the point where they meet the shoulders. The band is soft stretchy satin with very flexible side boning and contrasting picot edging. Wires are fairly narrow and firm. Not Panache firm, but quite firm enough to contain my scooped and swooped softish tissue. Cups are embroidered stretch net lined on the lower half with non-stretch tulle. Soft elastic with applied embroidered trim finishes the top edge. The 2 color embroidery is striking and set off beautifully by the mesh covered bow and tiny rhinestone dangle. Even the back of the straps is made of patterned elastic.
Some things could be better. Shape on me is slightly pointy, and I am even/slightly FOT with average height roots. The cups have no vertical seam in the lower half. If they did the depth would be better. The straps cannot be adjusted very short. It's ok for me but won't work for someone high set/short torso. The embroidered trim at the top doesn't lay flat and may show under form fitting clothing. There was one very odd thing - the padded part of the strap is 1 cm shorter and 1/2 cm wider on the left side. This tells me that, like Impimi, Rosme may have some quality control issues.
If your shape is a little more shallow you might enjoy this pretty bra and similar ones from Rosme. I'm keeping mine for now. Even though it's not the ideal fit I like the look of it so much I'll probably wear it enough to make it worth the reasonable price.
