This bra fits like a glove! Happy claps! I love it. Comfortable, smooth, high quality fabric, gorgeous color. No cleavage in it--just a nice rounded shape. Perfect every day bra. The material is like nothing I've ever felt before. It is not foam, it's not sheer...the tag said it's like a second skin. When I lightly touch my finger to my breast with the bra on, I can feel my finger.
Simone Perele's Caressence Shaped Full Cup in 65F is apparently equivalent to a UK 30E. That explains why the wires are too narrow on the sides. The extremely comfortable spacer foam cups adjust to one's shape, which explains why I don't quadboob, but the profile is flattened.
The center gore is too high and wide for my breasts, which have less than a pinky width between them and even less in a properly fitted plunge bra, which Simone Perele's Caressence Shaped Full Cup is not.
The color is called Peau Rose, and it is beautiful. It works as a nude for many people, including me, but is so much nicer than the grayish tan color so common in lingerie. The clear beige color has a delicate, pinkish undertone. I wish all nude-for-me bras were this color.
This is the perfect T-shirt bra! Comfortable, and the foam lined cups really smooth everything out under a T-shirt. I think this bra could work for many shapes as the cup material is stretchy and smoothing. It's definitely my best fitting and most comfy bra. One small issue is that I have a short chest, and the straps don't quite adjust short enough (adjustable part makes up about 1/3 of the total strap). I can easily sew it as I've done with other bras.
I love Simone Perele but the full-cup shape just doesn't suit me, I guess. It's really conservative, which I guess is expected, but also pretty flattening. Really disappointed because I looked at this for a long time. Somehow I quadboob a bit, at other times theres this bubble between the top of the cup and my breast tissue.
The band is tighter than my other SP bras, which is super exciting, but the straps aren't fully adjustable. While others have straps that just have lace overlay, these are actually the two-piece half adjustable straps.
The band is very comfortable, snug yet not so tight as to cause grooves. The straps are stiff yet comfortable due to the wider lacy fabric over the shoulders. The cups are soft and roomy, however the underwires are a little narrow for my breast tissue and so there is some slight quad-boobing and some breast tissue escapes the wires under the arms. I am on the first hook, however it is very stretchy so it may give faster than other, stiffer bras like Cleo.
Ultimately a bit of a shape mismatch for me. One of the few bras that I've found with a narrow enough gore and straps that adjust long enough (and sit close enough together) for my shoulders. It looks like a perfect fit from the front, but when I check it out from an angle the profile is lumpy- there's a noticeable pocket of space at the bottom of the cup, and possibly even a smaller one at the top as well. You can't tell under a shirt though, and I would be keeping the bra if it weren't for the wires being the tiniest bit too narrow. So frustrating, because this bra is really pretty, and the fabric is soft. It would have been extremely comfortable if it had only been wide enough.
So close but not quite! My breasts are fairly low-set, and the straps on this bra were great- lots of room for adjustment, whereas I'm usually lengthening straps as far as they'll go. Gore looked like it tacked, but *may* have lifted a bit along the bottom with deep inhalation. Slight quad boob at top of cups. I was surprised until I saw another review that mentioned the french sizing system: this 65E is the equivalent of a US 30DD.
This bra is the only one I've found thus far that even remotely fits me. My only complaints are that the brand doesn't make 28" bands, and that this is frequently labelled as a 3D Plunge, with no note that it's a full cup. It does plunge a little, but I'd call it more of a balconette/full cup. Simone Perele does not use DD, so a F cup is actually three cup sizes above a D so, 30F(Simone Perele)=30E(UK).
