Simone Perele bras are always gorgeous, with soft, elegant lace and delicate styling. I love the look of these bras, but unfortunately they rarely work out for me.
While all SP bands are very stretchy rather than firm, I've found that there's a lot of variation in how they measure. This particular style has a thick band that turns into tall lace-trimmed panels in the back. This provides more stability to this style than the typical narrow SP band.
Straps on this bra have a double adjustor system, where both the top of the adjustor and bottom lock in place. This is a nice feature ... since it locks the straps into place, but since these straps have a scalloped edge, it does make adjustment a little more difficult. I think this system works better on a smooth strap, but the little diamonds and scallops on the straps are so pretty!
Cup-wise, this fits very similarly to my other SP unlined demi cups, and is similar to the Amour with a shorter cup height. Compared to other brands, these cups tend to have a deep U shape, and run narrow and tall. The binding at the top is fairly closed off. The interior of the cup has a tulle panel that runs diagonally through the cup that's much wider than a sling. The cups give a good rounded shape, but are most suited for breasts that are narrow, round, projected, with average roots. It's too narrow for wide shapes, too projected for FOB or shallow shapes, and too closed off for tall roots.
On me, the band is slightly too big and doesn't provide enough support. The top edge sits flush against my skin, but there's an area of excess fabric right below the elastic. While the cups are the right volume for me, the shape is not a good fit, and my body doesn't fit into the cups to fill them out the correct way.
