I bought this bra from a bra transfer. $20 was well worth it even though it doesn't fit perfectly in the cups. There is definitly wrinkling in the upper cups which I guess shows I'm a bit fob. Any how, this bra is very supportive and sturdy. Has 3 hooks in the back and 2 part cups.
Major mismatch between my body and this bra. As soon as I opened the package I knew this would not fit. The bra itself is quite pretty....the sheer mesh and swirly flower-like pattern is delicate and feminine. The embroidery climbs up the straps. The color seems to have a touch of indigo in it. I think for someone with the right build for it, this bra could make you feel really sexy. Assuming it fits you more comfortably than it fits me, because everything about it (except the band) is uncomfortable for me.
The 30D band seems true to size. Snug, with a little bit of (not too much) ...stretch. The straps are a bit firm for my taste. They feel very rigid and uncomfortable. I'd hope they soften up with washing (but won't find out, because I'm sending this back.)
The cups are definitely not for shallow boobs. I get the feeling they run big, but it may just be because of the extreme shape mismatch. These are very deep and call for significant upper projection. The apex appears to be quite high on the cup (unusually so, compared to other seamless bras I've tried. It's at least an inch and a half above my nipple).
I have total gaping across the entire top of each cup, which also makes the very edges of the lace flare out weirdly. "Gaping" doesn't even sum it up...the top of this doesn't even come close to touching my skin anywhere. Not surprisingly, there is also wrinkling going on. I feel like if I could combine both of my boobs together, I might be able to fill this out. When I lift my arms, the cups dig into the side of my breast tissue, pressing it flat into my body and creating an unsightly crease (see pic). This is the same thing that's happened to me with unlined bras with build in "side support". Not a good look.
For the record, I am wide-set, splayed, deflated (especially the upper area) and very soft. Haven't found my perfect fit yet, but it appears it will be around a 28DD/30D. Still uncertain of projection ... because of sagging, shallow cups seems to fit better. Still uncertain of root width. Thought I was wide, but then found out it's because of being wide set and not due to the roots themselves...I think they're average. Maybe. Ha. I do seem to need a cup that allows for a bit more projection in the outer half of the cup, which is exactly the opposite of this bra style.
It seems I can never quite make unlined bras work https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> There's some wrinkling at the tops of the cups. It's so pretty, I'm not sure what I'll do with it yet. The wrinkling is less bad with this bra than others I've tried ... It still looks pretty cute under a shirt and mostly invisible. The design isn't so crazy that it sticks through my shirts. The band fits tighter than my other SP bras (the moulded cup ones)
Just bought the Simone Perele65E - Simone Perele » Revelation Demi Full Cup (12R334) and it is absolutely great!!! Most of the fabric bras with seams are shaped oddly on my breasts and give me the dreaded "triangle boob", but this one seems to retain a pretty good shape! It's comfortable and still supports everything. If you want a fancy bra that holds everything up and isnt in a neutral color, THIS IS IT!
This is a beautiful bra that I bought so I'd have a beautiful bra without molding of any sort. It is very nice looking, but I can't think of what sort of clothing I'd wear over it. I like a little more shaping under clothes. It's meant to be seen! The top cup line slightly wrinkles because it is so thin.
