This was my first bra purchase in an appropriate size and although it is not exactly a perfect fit, fits well enough that I am pleased and continue to wear it regularly. The entire bra is made of soft stretch lace and for this reason is very forgiving being slightly too small in the cup, but does give the smallest amount of overspill at the top, but not enough that is visible under clothing. I am not sure if the brand runs large in the band, or if it is the material, but the 36 fits very comfortably, and my usual size is a 38.
The cup on this one was way too big for me, as well as the band. I ended up selling it to a friend who seems very happy with it. Appart from that it was well made and comfortable, but it did have the too wide straps which seems to be a common thing with Simone Perele bras.
I Love the way this one looks on me! The straps are wide-set, but not too far they slide off my shoulders. They're nice and thick, so they're very comfortable. The lace is very pretty and flattering, but not quite smooth enough to wear seamlessly under tighter shirts.
When I'm sitting I can feel the top of the underwire rubbing on my arm a bit, but so far it's not too intrusive. I have a ring of poof right on my ribcage so underwires in general aren't the most comfortable on me (they all seem to hit right on that line), but this one feels great! The gore doesn't lay completely flat so in theory it might not be the exact size I need, but it's still very comfortable. I'm new to this idea of getting a bra that actually fits, so even if it's not absolutely perfect it still feels wonderful compared to what I used to wear https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
Lace, 2 part vertical seam cups, unpadded, unlined
The bad... Straps are too far apart for me. I don't have enough experience fitting my new boobs into bras to know whether I could change sizes to remedy this, I imagine it varies by brand? The straps stay put while I'm moving around, standing, walking, etc, but when I sit down they start slipping off my shoulders. The only other negative I can give this bra is that the lace will show slightly through thin/light shirts.
The good... This is now the most comfortable bra I own! It conforms to my shape without bullying my boobs like some molded/firm ...cup bras do and still gives a nice round shape under clothes. I have to wear a bra to bed for 6 months and I change into a soft sports bra at night, but slept in this one last night just fine. The band stays put but it does have more stretch to it than others that I have tried, which adds to the appeal for me.
I'll be moving the straps to fix the slipping problem, but this is definitely a keeper! Read more 84 more words
