The Great Amazon Prime Wardrobe Try-On, Pt 2! My shape: FOB, narrow roots/shoulders, soft tissue, 32G (though I'm thinking maybe more 30G since a lot of these 32 bands are too stretchy for me!)
Fit: The wires are sort of bendy and not as sturdy, but they seem narrow, ala Ewa Michalak bras. Maybe not as U-shaped, but I don't have a problem with them poking my armpits, and they enclose my breast tissue on the sides. There is an elastic band along the top lace part of the cup, which is fine on my smaller breast, but I get slight quadding/spillage on my larger one. There are only two ...hooks for the band, and it feels a lot stretchier than what I am used to. The straps are not too wide for my narrow shoulders, which is a nice change of pace for me! I get a splayed, sort of pushed out to the sides shape, which is not my cup of tea. The fabric is super soft, so it would be nice for anyone who has sensitive skin. It feels like stretchy microfiber, all except the top lace parts.
Appearance: This is a darker charcoal colored bra, so it would be a good alternative to a black bra. The bottom of the cups has two layers of super soft fabric, the lining being a mesh, the outside a striped soft, stretchy material. The inside of the cups has this vertical folded section along the sides of each cup; I've never seen that before in a bra. The clasp is three sets of two hooks; I had mine on the tightest clasp right away, which leads me to believe this will stretch out even farther once it gets worn in more.
Verdict: Though comfortable, this doesn't give me the shape I am looking for. I like the soft fabric, the narrower wires and straps, but I think, if I were to try this, I would go a band size down. I've never heard of this brand of bra before, but it was one that was available for Prime Wardrobe, and I am glad I checked it out! Read more 246 more words
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
So, the band is a good length, but it's quite stretchy - probably the stretchiest band of any of my bras. I would get this in the 30 band size if it were available in my cup size, but it's not. So, here's my plan: Because the amount that it stretches is the main problem, I'm going to sew a regular (non-elastic) stitch across a small portion of the band on each side of the cups, so that part can't stretch. That should reduce the amount of stretch in the band, without altering the dimensions of the bra. Other than the super stretchy band, I really do love this bra. It gives a great shape and is ridiculously comfortable.
**Note: 32F for Simone Perele is equivalent to a UK 32E (SP does not have a DD size; their cup sizes simply go A, B, C, D, E, F, etc.)
This is such a beautiful bra! Sadly it just doesn't fit me. It has the narrowest cups I've ever seen in a bra my size - like several sizes too narrow. The lace is stretchy enough to accommodate my breasts though, although the elastic on the top of the cups cuts in a bit. It gives a nice rounded, uplifted shape.
Sizing issues aside, I'm very disappointed in the construction of this bra. I'd hear so much great stuff about this brand, but seeing one in person is leaving me underwhelmed. The bra is really pretty and delicate, but it feels really flimsy. The material is super stretchy, and I've yet to see stretchy material that doesn't stretch out soon. The cup lining isn't sewn down and kinda just hangs out under my armpits.
Maybe this is more lingerie than everyday bra, and that's fine. It's just not what I was looking for.
Me: wide rooted, tall rooted, very close set. Somewhat shallow. I need a wide cup that is open on top with either a very low gore, or the rare extremely narrow gore.
I can't believe how soft and stretchy the cups on this bra are. They feel like a softer neoprene. This bra is a bit more closed on top than I'd like. However, the material is so pliable and soft, I couldn't resist and I think it will mold to my shape. I hope it will. I love the lace and applique detail.
Edit: this material is what they call a "spacer bra". I love it in this heat. Breathable yet seamless and provides some lining
I've been looking for this bra for so long after I fell in love with it in a too small 65E. The 65F fits much better! It's about as good as I could've hoped for - the band seems a tiny bit tighter than other SP bras like it, I fill out the cups but do not quad, the wires aren't resting on my tissue. The straps and band of this size are noticeably thicker and more supportive.
I notice on this bra that there seems to be a 'bubble' at the edge of the top of the cup. I've experienced this in other Simone Perele bras too - ...where the top seam the cup will lie flat on your breasts, but there will be a slight bubble of empty space between the top seam and your breasts. I believe it is just how these bras are constructed. You can see it happening in some of the pictures. This usually gets worse for me when I am sitting or slouching. It doesn't bother me too much standing up, and isn't noticeable under clothes, so I much prefer it to quadboob.
Overall, I'm in love. I've missed this level of comfort and how thin and breathable the fabric is. I wish the bra wasn't white, but i can deal with it. Read more 111 more words
This is a beautiful bra; it's put together well, the stitching is high-quality, and I love the dark brown fabric with the pink and brown embroidered leaves. The band and cups are reasonably okay — the cups are a touch small and the wires are a bit narrow — but the straps slip because they're set too wide for me. I haven't worn it much for that reason. I could probably get a better fit in the cups if I went up to the F, but the shoulders might be even wider.
The moulded cup on this bra is soft and flexible. It's described as "moulded," but is much less stiff than other moulded cup bras that I've tried. The cups are very comfortable and provide a lining, nipple coverage, and some shape without adding padding. The underwires are a bit short for me, but the channels are adequately enclosed and padded so they don't poke.
I wish that the straps matched my shoulder shape better! It's a great bra, just the wrong shape for me.
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.
I saw this NWT on eBay and had to try it. I'd say it is much more similar to current models like Caresse, but the cups are taller and deeper. The wings are wider and the band might be slightly tighter. The beige color is darker.
The bra fits me better than the modern SP bras, but after a few wears I'm realizing the band is still too loose. It doesn't ride up or shift around, which is my main criteria, so I'm still not sure I'll keep it. I'm also seeing that the cups are too tall and wide. They are uncomfortable, but I love the spacer foam.
Just got this bra a couple weeks ago when I went to Nordstrom and asked to try some 30 band sizes. It was more comfortable and fit better than the others I tried but I noticed later that it comes up slightly too high under the arms and the binding on the top of the cup rubs on my skin below my armpits a little. I think it is better since I've washed it and worn it a little. Works well for FOB and holding in sideboob.
This bra disappointingly features the same large band as many similar Simone Perele bras - I keep hoping to find one that is a bit tighter, as I believe my Revelation wasn't so loose when I bought it originally - 1-2 years of wear did that. I remeasured my underbust, wondering if I could possibly be closer to needing a 28" band and if that could explain the loose band, but nope. When I inhale, my underbust measures comfortably at almost 32"! Comfortable tightness is about 30.5", super tight actually is like 27.5" ... But I rarely wear my bras that tight.
I'd say this bra is a ...lot like the Andora, but it seems softer and less rigid than my black Andora was. The difference is the cute details with the straps, the accent lace color. The straps aren't fully adjustable, so that sucks. The cups seem a bit narrower than the bras I'm currently wearing. The cups are still wonderfully thin and soft.
I have an issue with both these bra models where there can be a small bubble of empty space at the tops of the cups (though the top of the cup lays flat), but later there can be a bit of quad-boob. I'm not sure what's up with that.
Overall, it's the same beautiful bra I fell in love with Simone Perele for. It's so soft, so comfortable. The materials feel so luxurious. I want to keep it, but I know the band will be too large. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> Read more 149 more words
I'd consider this bra about on par with the 30DD B.Tempt'd B.Wow'd push up bra: Looser band, a bit of quad-boob on me. Cute, comfy t-shirt bras. They both remind of something I would've gotten at VS or a department store when I wore 34Cs. This bra however looks way cuter and more grown up, feels much softer, and is overall better quality and more luxurious than the B.Tempt'd (though the retail price is ridiculous!)
The cups are seriously so soft though. It puts the thick, stiff foam of my Deco to shame. I could imagine myself wearing this and just having the desire to keep feeling the soft fabric and then realizing I'm stroking my boobs in front of my roommates.
The band is looser and the straps aren't fully adjustable though .. The straps work if I wear it as a racerback .. Not sure if I'll keep it yet.
I tried this bra on and was smitten with how beautiful it looked. Totally surprised that it fit me, as most of the unlined styles of bras don't fit my wide, shallow breasts very well. There is a very slight wrinkling on the top of my smaller breast (right breast) but it doesn't show through clothing. The lace cups have very little stretch to them but the mesh and embroidery is very flat, smooth, and comfortable. The inside of the cup has a short panel of nude mesh on the side of the cup.
I had to wear nipple petals to take pictures ...of this bra, as it's very see-through. I didn't have any problems with nipple showing through my shirts, though. The straps only adjust half-way (up to the top of the shoulder) and then separate into two thinner straps in the front. Both kinds of straps were comfortable and pretty.
The band seemed to be a true 32" size for me and was firm but not uncomfortable. This bra did give me a slightly pointy profile, which I generally don't like, but it wasn't very noticeable with my shirt on. I did notice that the underwires were slightly longer than I'm used to, but I didn't have any problems with it poking me under my arms. The underwires are very U shaped and long, but don't seem to be too narrow. The wires are also somewhat flexible.
All in all a gorgeous, sexy bra with a pretty good fit. My husband definitely approves! lol Read more 162 more words
This bra is the equivalent of a UK 30E, but is sold as a 30F in the US.
I'm more projected and usually wear UK 30DD, so was hoping that by sizing up in the cups there would be enough depth. There is, but the wires are much too wide for my narrow roots. The shape is slightly flattening for my projection, but this would probably be a great bra for anyone who is shallower and needs wider wires. The band is stretchy, but supportive. [sizing: UK D=D, UK DD=E, UK E=F]
First off, this bra is very comfortable! Also, although this bra is listed as a push up, only sizes A-C have the push up pads. This confused me when I was looking to review this bra online, since my bra does not have push up pads. Also, the straps are only partially adjustable, even though the Simone Perele website says they are fully adjustable.
The wires are the perfect width for me and I have no quadboobing. I do get some gapping when my torso twists, but I think that is because it is a molded cup. The band is stretchy, but so far it isn't riding up ...on my back. I'm usually comfortable in very firm 30 bands, so I'm glad this stretchier band is staying in place. Although this is listed as a push up, I don't really get any cleavage in this bra since the D cup has no padding. That is fine with me, since I bought this to be a comfy, luxurious bra, not a cleavage bra.
Finally, I have this bra in the navy/turquoise combo and it is gorgeous! Read more 77 more words
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.
