I wish this bra came in a 28C. Actually, if there was a half cup size inbetween C and D, I'd probably take that. The wires sit about a quarter inch too wide on the outsides for me, and I have a significant amount of wrinkling/gapping on my smaller side. On my larger side, it appears to fit well depth-wise, but the cup could be a slight bit tighter before giving me any quad-boob.
The gore is quite wide on this one, so I would only recommend it to those who are particularly wide-set. This is the closest I've ever come to finding a perfectly wide-enough gore, but it ...actually goes about an eighth of an inch too wide if I'm being nit-picky.
The lace on this bra is just gorgeous. It is just so pretty I want to keep it just to look at it sometimes. It is very delicate, but seems fairly high-quality at the same time. Unfortunately, I found this bra to feel uncomfortably tight and somewhat rib-squeezing (something to do with the wires, but I can't put my finger on it - I just know my breathing is constricted a little, but when I flip the bra around, the band doesn't feel too tight), so it's hard to justify keeping it. For the record, I do have a strange and flare-y ribcage, so this may not be an issue for you.
I have somewhat broad shoulders for my size, but I also found the straps to be just a bit too far apart. They dig into my armpits, and are also not long enough for me. I have them let all the way out, and I wish I could loosen them a half inch more or so. Read more 180 more words
This is another Skarlett Blue style that didn't work out for me. Generally I fit into 30D in this brand, but the bands are a little stretchy and I felt I could size down. Unfortunately, this is not the right style to size down in, as the band runs quite small.
I could get the band hooked, but I could tell immediately that it was distorting the wires. Since these wires are flexible, they didn't dig into my body, but distorted and splayed quite badly. The cups are made from flimsy mesh and once the wires were distorted, they flattened right out. Basically, this ...bra was like a chest binder on me. Extremely uncomfortable and unflattering. However, given the cup construction, I don't think sister sizing to a 30D would make this a good style for me.
The term balconette implies that this bra should give some degree of lift and support, but I find that the cup construction here is not capable of giving the required level of lift. The mesh feels like the type you might find in a stretch mesh panty or in sleepwear, not the powermesh you might be familiar with from a supportive bra. Like most of Skarlett Blue's designs, the cups don't have much shaping, relying on a center front half seam in the cup to create the cup shape. Because of this, I think this bra would only work on true B cups and below who don't expect much shaping or lift from their bra, and would be happy to wear something comfortable and unpadded. You would also want to sister size up one band size as wearing a tight band here will also constrict the cups. Read more 185 more words
This bra is too wide for me. The mesh lining is very soft though, and the lace shows far less under clothing than I expected. I'd recommend it for people who are wider than I am & live in a warm climate.
Gore was too wide and very painful. Cups fit well, but might be too small due to feeling of band tightness, despite good fit when bra was tried upside down and backwards. Fabric was soft and comfortable if fit had been better.
