    38J

    Fits

    I love this bra! It is one of my favourites at the moment. And it does not even come in my size! I have another one in 36J which I loved when I was a 32K-KK. Now that I wear 34KK, I need the 38J. The band on the Bellise does run at least 1 - 1 and a half sizes smaller! The cups are generous. So my 38J fits more like a 36K of even 34KK when I wear it on the tightest setting.

    pros:
    - strong Panache wires, that are less wide than Elomi wires
    - tight bands (a plus for those at the upper end of ... the cup - range)
    - the fabric is so heavenly comfortable and soft
    - sturdy and good support
    - I have barely any underwire pain
    - round uplifted shape
    - quite front and centered shape
    - wires are a very good width for me (I need medium wide wires - EM is usually too narrow, Elomi too wide)

    cons:
    - why is this bra discountined?
    - why does it not come in all the colours up to a KK cup?
    - shallow cups

    Now the shallowness of the cups is the only real problem here. But it also makes the bra very supportive because it keeps boobs close to chest. Since I have rather deep boobs, I only can wear this bra on "smaller days" when I can stand some shallower cups. I still think it has good projection from the underwire, I don't have as much empty space there than in a Elomi Caitlyn.

  2. This bra is great, it was my favourite for a long time. 36J fitted me when I was a 32K-KK. The band on the Bellise does run at least 1 - 1 and a half sizes smaller! The cups are generous. So a 36J fits more like a 34JJ or a 32K on the tightest setting.

    If you wonder about some of my pics showing that the bra is a bit big... there was a time when I was a 30K/ 32JJ - the bra was too big in the band and cups then. Just if anyone wonders why pics show the bra being too big. I owned this bra for about 2 and a half year now. It's still in good condition despite many wears! Great Quality I say!

  3. This is my most comfortable bra. I have three of them - one in this size and two a band size smaller/cup size larger. This works when I am on the upper end of my weight range and the others work on the lower end of my usual weight range. I have had them both for over a year and they are all in great shape.

    The cup like is good for people with fuller on top breasts - it works for me (I am pretty even), but there is a bit extra room there. The shape is relatively projected, but not like Chi-Chi! The sides under my arms are firm and the wires rest against my skin and do not poke. The material is soft and comfortable.

    I currently wear Elomis, for comparison, in the 42 GG range, depending on the cut sometimes a G. I cannot even hook the 42 in this bra. I sister sized to a 44G in this and it was too big in the cup, so went to an FF. Perfect.

    36F

    Didn't fit

    One of the most comfortable bras I've tried. I really with Panache would use the Sculptresse fabrics in the regular line - the wings are made of a double layer of this silky-soft fabric that is SO much more comfortable than the mesh on say the Jasmine.

    I sister-seized up from my normal Panache 34FF, since at the time of purchase Sculptress didn't do 34 bands.

    Sadly, it's not a great fit with me shape. I get a little bit of quad-boob on my larger side, and a weirdly flat slope in the upper inner part of the cup. I'd say this is better for someone with less upper fullness.

    But again, SO COMFORTABLE. I actually debated keeping it just to wear when flying, it's that comfy.

    36J

    Hasn't set fit

    This bra seriously probably has the most comfortable fabric I have ever tried in a bra. It is seriously so soft compared with sturdy that I never thought a bra like that could be made. Add to that the wide band and the curved construction of the bra in the front and I am stunned by the quality.

    The best thing is the bra is too large for me. But too large actually everywhere. I almost believe it could fit if I sized down.

    Vertical depth near the strap: 31 cm
    Near the gore: 17 cm
    Where the vertical seam is: 29 cm
    Height of vertical seam: 19 cm

    Gore separation on bottom: 5.5 cm

    I compared this bra to my Andorra 36J. Height where the vertical seam is is 26. Andorra is labeled a fullcup. Belisse is labeled a balconette. QTF?!

    • Excited for pictures!

    • Elphabra I'm swimming in it! :D Pictures won't really say a lot, but you can all have a good laugh :D

    • Elphabra Now you can see the madness :D

      drownedsalad I think we can say this bra is very very tall! :D

    • 1

      I never got why the Andorra is labelled as full-cup. It came lower than many "balconettes*. Anyway this bra... cup depth & band measuement (it's more like a 32-34 band?) sound like they would fit me o.O however 14cm wing height would even be unbearable for me.

    • 1

      alisa I actually thought about if it could fit you :D The wings are not high but low! The band rather sits lower not higher because of how it's angled :) And yes, the band is very very firm and nice :)

      I figured we could send this around bratabase as a gift bra to see where it ends up in the end :D But in that case the give away should be conditional so that no one that doesn't achieve a perfect fit will need to send it further :D

    • 1

      I mean everyone that doesn't achieve a perfect fit will need to send it further :D Only the one with a perfect fit in this bra could keep it. It would be interesting to see how it fitted different kinds of shape :D

    • You mean you would send it to me, so I can try it. If it does not fit me, I list it as giveaway and send it to someone else??

    • A band that sits lower?? Sounds really good. I'm annoyed with these "up angled" bands of certain bras that cause more back fat than there has to be.

    • Thanks! :) Wow that's a lot of bra. I wonder how much of it is the size on you? That band looks glorious, though. Does it seem shallow at the bottom, or is that just how it's sitting on you?
      Hmm, I wonder if this bra is my size? My 36HH ariza is pretty full these days.

      Also, is it just me, or does this bra pattern look more like a swimsuit?

    • Holy moley! It's practically on your back!

    • Elphabra http://www.bratabase.com/compare/dhnm7/ Here are the insights.

      alisa I would say it sits lower, but it's not angled lower in the back. It's just expanded downwards so to speak. It's a wider band :)

      And yes, I'm thinking that we could make a bra adventure give away thing about it and have people motivate why they should try it and so on. It could be a fun experiment. Braboratory in progress :) I'm still not completely sure about it. I have to think a little bit more, but I think it could be an interesting idea!

    • Oh and yes Elphabra when you say it you're right that it does remind of a swimsuit. Maybe it's because the cups are so huge on me though :D
