Update: This bra was well loved for a few months and worn regularly before the cups edges started to curl outward and show under shirts. Probably due to it not being a perfect fit but it may also be lower quality. Pretty bummed because it was a favorite and otherwise is holding up well!
A unique bra with virtually no gore, and I'm happy with the fit! Truly, I just noticed it on Amazon for $15 and had to try it.
Somehow Simone Perele has made me fall in love again. This bra seems well thought out. The cups are tall, but something about the shape and wire width makes ...it work - preventing them from bothering my armpits (a problem I encounter often in plunges). The wing height is also low, further preventing this problem. The cups have a nice amount of depth overall, where many plunge bras are simply too shallow and too wide.
Their website advised sizing down in the cup and I think that is fair. I would usually go with their 65F but the cups might have been too tall and deep.
I'm not sure where I am shape wise that makes this bra works. I thought I was a bit close set, but maybe I'm more in the middle. 1" gores are good, less is great. Over 1" is bad. Maybe I'm self supporting enough that my breasts don't want to escape into the middle too much? I'm sure the cut isn't for everyone but I'm loving it.
It feels comfortable and easy to wear overall. I can for sure see this becoming my go to bra. Plus, the band runs true to size unlike many Simone Perele bras! Read more 172 more words
Excellent bra! Unfortunately, all around too big for me. The cups are extremely tall, and since mine was preowned, the band is somewhat stretched. However, this bra fits my mom great according to her. She is like a 32E in Cleo bras. Maybe I'll try this in a 65D someday and see how it fits.
This is a most comfortable option for shallow-average breasts. The no-gore design is exceedingly comfortable to those of us who loathe wires sitting on our tissue.
Although Simone Perele recommends sizing down in this model, I wouldn't recommend that for projected breasts. Literally, I could not fasten this bra and 29" is sufficient stretched band length for me. Simone Perele's website recommends a 30F for my measurements. Their size recommendation coupled with the "size down" recommendation for this model lead me to conclude it is a shallow bra.
I liked these materials and design enough that I ordered a replacement two cup sizes larger. Because the size offerings ...are limited, I'll be altering the replacement bra's band (36E). Familiar tale for my bra fitting journey... And, considering the 7.75" cup height of the 30F, I'm curious how tall the 36E cup will be. Absolutely, I do not need more cup height. When you are very short-waisted, center-full, close-set, and omega-shaped, you become willing to accept the unacceptable (i.e. 36" bands on a 28" underbust). Sincerely, these fit characteristics desperately need more options!!
Without the laces this is a simple bra, but the geometric lace along the length of the band and the Guipure-diamond-lace strap design elevate this bra several levels. I appreciate minimalism, and this bra seems minimalist with flair. Like annabellynn, I would not pay $78 for this bra. The replacement was $15 on Amazon. Certainly, it is worth that amount if only for the no-gore-wire design. Add the soft materials and intricate lace and I might pay $40.
The fabrics are exceedingly soft and delicate. There is absolutely no way I would add this to a washing machine delicate cycle. The lace is too intricate for more than gentle hand washing....ever. This is just a forewarning to those of us who sometimes use a washing machine. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";-)" />
I hope to see many more wire-free-gore designs soon! Thanks to annabellynn for finding this bra and adding data!! Read more 229 more words
I need a gore just like this, but my short-waisted physique can't tolerate these tall cups. In addition to the tall cups, the straps are fully adjustable making this a good choice for tall users and or low-set breasts.
The fit improves when I simulate a 0" cup separation. That alteration may be just what I require. However, it will also open the cup which is not ideal when one considers my roots are short and this cup is tall. Aye...
Wearing this for 10 minutes causes my lymph nodes to shoot fireworks. This just isn't going to work for my short-waisted self.
Sigh. From a volume perspective, the 80E (one cup size larger) was a better fit, but the cup was too tall. This 70F is one size too small and still is too tall.
The wire is digging in under my projected breasts. And, my center tissue quads at the gore. Neither of these fit characteristics were present in the 80E. Sigh. I want this gore-less design to work.
The shape under a thin knit is amazingly round. I'm thrilled. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" /> https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" /> The no-gore design is exceedingly comfortable. The materials are soft and effortless to wear.
I will examine this bra and attempt to identify an easy method to remove an inch or two from the top of the 80E; that I just returned to Amazon. Sigh. Geez.
Too tall for my short-waisted stature. The cup does not collapse and I feel supported despite the very tall cup. There is no push-up padding in this cup, yet I'm uncertain how one would achieve the look in the advertising literature.

And, I've successfully worn this shade of red and under white knits--versatile. I'll try this one cup size down and hope for a great fit....hope.
