    28D

    Didn't fit

    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.

      Oh wow. You are my new favorite person. This bra has been in my Amazon shopping cart for a few weeks and you just saved me from ordering it! The gore is definitely too wide for me (looks like for you too) and the cups run big. Too bad, it's so pretty!

    • runs_with_scissors Glad I could help! :) Yeah it's so pretty, I'm bummed I had to return it.

    28D

    Fits

    I'm wearing my normal size in this bra, 28D. I'm shallow with wide roots. I've been looking for a balconette push up for a while because the one I have pokes out above any mid-low cut top. This one is super comfortable and gives my boobs a nice boost! My main complaint with it is that the seam where the cup and straps attach sticks out quite a bit, but you can't see it under a tight tee-shirt so I think it will be fine under most clothes. The straps are also a bit farther apart than I'd like, but they are very soft and don't cut into my armpit so I also don't see them being a problem. I have two other bras by Skarlett Blue in 28D and the fit seems consistent across the brand!

    • Where did you find Skarlett Blue in 28 bands? I LOL LOVE Skarlett Blue and cannot seem to find them in 28 bands. Have you requested a fit check for this bra or have you tried the DD? It looks to me that this cup is cutting into your tissue.

    • LeProfessor Nordstrom online only, but they have free returns so it works out. This one is from Nordstrom Rack. I haven't tried the DD actually, next time I place an order I'll grab one to test it out! Normally DD cups are too deep for me.

    • @Harmonious
      Ty, I will definitely check out Nordstrom online. I have now completely looked over your all your bras now and definitely think the DD bras fit you better. Although I also read that you say you do not fill the bottom of th e cup, although I see no indentation/wrinkling in the pictures to indicate this. I feel I am quite similar to you in the breasticles area. Although I am sure you are much taller than me. It sort of sucks that with women along our size range generally have to deal with slight fit problems just because of how differently shaped we are compared to most 30+ ribcage. It seems in your case that you do not mind having some cut in/quading at the top. Perhaps you need a bra that is shallow at the bottom with a higher appex and very narrow wires? Although in the pictures it looks like the 28DDs follow your breast root very well. I am not quite as learned as some other women on here, have you thought about posting a fit check? A lot of the women here are very well equipped with knowledge to help

    • LeProfessor thanks so much for your detailed response! I have posted a fit check for a few of my bras and I think mostly people agreed on 28D. I should try again next time I get a new bra! I'm 5'6" and yes our size is the worst. Honestly the past few months I've just work pasties every day.

    • Harmonious, I have so thought about doing the same thing. But I feel I need some support! Rather it be in the form of a tight cami or one of my sports bras that feel like their squashing me flat...which is what I always wear now. All my pre-BtB sizes ride all the way up my back and I have to constantly pull my books back into the cups!

    • 1

      LeProfessor I totally get it. I felt weird with the pasties for the first few weeks but then my breasts got more toned and it feels totally normal now. Their shape has even improved from supporting themselves!

      And yes I used to wear 32B and they were THE WORST and I never understood why!

  3. Minx Unlined Balconette (1733100)

    30DDD

    Didn't fit

    This is my second experience with the Skarlett Blue Minx, one of their supposed topsellers. I hated the original Minx I tried in my original size of 28DD and found it to run super small, acting like a chest binder instead of a bra. However, I spotted this at Nordstrom Rack in person and loved the appearance of this colorway, Meringue/Brick, which is soft pink with burgundy crossdye lace and details. Due to COVID restrictions, their fitting rooms were closed and this item was final sale since it was on clearance, so I took a chance even though I suspected that the cups were a ... bit too wide as it is one size up from my normal sister size of 30DD. It turns out that my suspicions were true and the fit is a bit off for me, but with some adjustments, it is still wearable, so all is not lost.

    The biggest surprise for me is that the 30DDD (30:6) is so much larger than the 28DD (28:5), since it is one band size larger and 2 cups larger in volume. However, I found that the band is 7 cm/2 3/4" longer in the 30DDD, which is kind of insane. The 28DD was so tight on me that hooking the band distorted the wires completely, but keep in mind that this was my actual size at the time, and my ribcage is close to 26". I have gone up one cup size since then, but my band measurement hasn't changed at all. Going up one band size in this bra somehow feels like a 2 band size increase. I have found massive inconsistencies with Skarlett Blue's bands before, since I have ordered 30DD styles that could barely hook closed, and 30DD styles that feel like 32s. Thus, quality and consistency is a big problem with this brand, and I think overall they struggle with proper grading between sizes.

    The other weird thing about this bra is that it is designed to be wide and flat in the cups. I'm not sure why this is supposedly a bestseller, because reviewing the photos on the brand's official website from "real customers" on social media, it doesn't look good on anyone in that it doesn't do anything--it doesn't lift, shape, or provide support. The cup measurement isn't actually that wide, but the proportions are super wide because the wires are a rather flat shape with a very flat bottom. I think this would end up fitting better if the wires are bent to be more curved, thus reducing the cup width and giving it more projection. The cup construction is not even a true 2HC or vertical seam bra. Rather, it is one piece of double layered mesh with a long vertical dart at the center of the cup extends up about 3/4 of the way up the cup. I also own the Skarlett Blue Condesa, which is at least a full seamed 2HC. It seems this brand doesn't know much about how to create shape through seaming, since their assortment skews towards molded cup bras and these cups with very little construction.

    Because of this weird cup construction, you can effectively think of the Minx as an underwired bralette, suited for bedroom wear rather than functional wear. The cups create no shape whatsoever, and since they do not have adequate depth built into the cup shape, they do a great job of minimizing. I said in my original review of the 28DD that this felt like a chest binder, and I still think that it does, though this bra is technically one cup size large on me and therefore doesn't smush everything together, thankfully. I found after trying both sizes that this bra runs about half a cup size small, so while 30DDD/E would normally be pretty huge on me, this is only slightly large on me, and I am unsure if 30DD would be a good fit or if it would be too shallow and small. Still, to make this bra wearable, I plan to bend the wires for better shape and wear it with foam liners to give it some shape.

    Given my past experiences with this style and with this brand, you might be wondering why I blindly bought this bra in the first place, knowing it was unreturnable and unlikely to fit? Well, the reason is that it is really pretty, and I just wanted to have it! The main thing that this bra has going for it is a pretty appearance. The Minx comes in a lot of colorways, but I think the crossdye ones are the nicest. The materials of this bra are also soft, good quality, and feel excellent for summer wear. The entire cup is made from double layer mesh, and the outer cup and cradle are topped with floral lace, leaving the upper edge of the cup as smooth mesh. The crossdye lace looks like an embroidered outline of the lace pattern, and the resulting appearance is really beautiful. The wings are made from soft and silky microfiber with a cool feeling, and the band is constructed with fully enclosed elastic for a smooth feel. Hardware throughout is rose gold and looks good quality. Straps are narrow plain elastic, with no texture, so they are not suitable for heavier breasts, though it's clear that the cup construction is not suitable for heavier breasts anyway. The center gore has a delicate long thin ribbon bow with little crystal beads at the end. So much nicer than the similar decoration on Masquerade's Antoinette, which tries to do the same thing but has big clunky beads!

    Skarlett Blue does a good job creating lovely bras with an expanded size range compared to many US department store brands, specifically with more options for small band, medium cup wearers, but unfortunately their bras suffer from inconsistencies in sizing and a poor understanding of fit and construction. If you find bras in their range that work for you, they have many attractive options. Unfortunately, for those who already fit well in UK and Polish brands, there is nothing impressive about the brand that would make you want to switch. I don't mind giving this bra another try since I think I can make it wearable, but I don't have much interest in Skarlett Blue as a brand anymore unless I find a style on deep discount and I can try it risk-free.

    30D

    Didn't fit

    I really enjoyed the Skarlett Blue Condesa Balconette in 30D, so I wanted to try more from the brand.

    Upon first impression, I really liked this bra, but after playing around with the fit, I decided this isn't right for me.

    The cups here are made from really gorgeous, soft lace that disappears nicely under tight clothing. It's a surprisingly comfortable style and looks beautiful on. However, the problems with this bra come from the lack of support commonly found in brands that design for appearance and comfort over functionality.

    This style has decently wide wings, but the fabric and elastic of the band have a lot of give, ... so the band only gives medium support. This became a problem for me because the cups themselves are not designed with much support or structure. The cups are structured almost like a bandeau with light seaming in the center front of the cups for shape, but the top of the cups is very open and the cups are on the taller side. If the band is not tight enough, the cups will gap at the top when moving. However, when I tightened the band to the tightest hook, the cups ended up flattening me out and giving me pancake chest. This is because the cups don't have enough shaping built in, so tightening the band results in pulling the entire front panel into the body.

    This style might suit someone who is FOT or has tall roots and is OK wearing the band a little on the looser side, however I am unsure how much the lace of the cups stretch as the effect on the lower part of the cup might be flattening.

    32D

    Didn't fit

    I've never heard of this brand until I visited my local Nordstrom Rack and found this. The cups smell like chemical foam. Hopefully that will diminish with time. The inside is super soft and after it's first washing, it's already starting to collect fuzz. The band is super tight for a 32, it feels like a 30 or even a 28. The band stitching is a little harsh on my sensitive skin, hopefully that will soften over time. The cups are also slightly stretchy, so I'm guessing that's why it only measures around 7.5" when I usually need a shy 8" depth.

    This bra is at least two sizes small in the cups. Other than that it's completely fine. Pretty, comfortable, reasonable quality -- doesn't fit at all.

    28C

    Didn't fit

    This bra feels much too small. I don't think it is actually the band, despite it not being adjustable (it has a front closure) - it's the cups. Specifically all the push-up padding. It makes for a VERY shallow cup which has my small bust quadding all over the place. The straps are also almost too short for me, but not quite. I do tend to sit fairly low in the bust, however, so this might not be an issue for many people.

    The back is very cute, the quality is good overall, and I love a good racerback for certain shirts that I like to wear. I also love a push-up bra, if it fits right, but unfortunately this isn't responsibly wearable for me in this size. I intend to exchange it for a 28D and see how that goes.

    I recommend probably sizing up in the cup for this one, unless perhaps you are particularly shallow all over.

    28C

    Didn't fit

    This is such a beautiful bra. The material is soft and high-quality, and the color I bought (slate) is gorgeous. The construction is wonderful - I don't think I could distort these cups if I tried.

    Unfortunately, it is VERY padded on the bottom and is not particularly compatible with my full-on-bottom breasts. The wires seem like they are the perfect width and separation for me, but all the padding at the bottom makes it difficult to keep the wires in my IMF. This bra is so close to fitting, and making my small bust appear much larger than it is (sometimes that is a very nice option to ... have) but it just isn't a perfect match. The areola of my larger breast is barely contained (in fact it isn't, unless I make sure to occasionally tuck it back in), and because of my shallow tops, there is a little bit of gapping with my smaller breast, despite the larger one quadding just a bit. If my breasts were more even, I would definitely keep this bra for certain occasions.

    I highly recommend this to anyone looking for extreme push-up/padding and seamless construction, but it is probably better for those who are full on top so their breasts can rest on the shelf of padding inside these cups and let it round out the bottoms for them.

    Pros:
    -Underwire is the perfect shape for me (I’m center full, average roots).
    -Pretty, sexy
    -Fast break in period
    -Space for projection
    -Extremely comfortable (forget you’re wearing it kind of bra)
    -Inner lining is a tulle

    Cons:
    -Doesn’t come in anything other than lace, which I can see through some shirts
    -Not all of the color ways are available in the larger sizes
    -Cute matching underwear, but only available in a thong cut

    Side note:
    -The salesperson hat recommended this bra mentioned that Skarlett Blue is a sister company to Natori, and that if a client fits one, she recommends the other. I have struggled with how robust the underwires are in Wacoal bras, and comparatively speaking, the wires in both Skarlett Blue and Natori are a lot gentler.
    -I use my Nippies (I have the ones without adhesive) with this bra when it’s cold.

    Beautiful and soooooo soft (flocked casings, soft fabric), but it's showing some snags and loose threads after very little wear. The loose threads seem to be isolated to the seam allowance, so it might not be a long-term problem.

    I'm very wide set and shallow - was looking for a push-up bra to give me a little lift (since I also have tuberous breasts). I didn't get any lift and my breast tissue did not seem like it was centered on my chest - I still had a 3 finger gap between each breast.

    I'm not going to keep this one even though it fits pretty well. I don't love the shape it gives my breasts, and I don't love how lumpy the lace looks under t-shirts. If you like lacy, unlined bras this one's super pretty - and for what it's worth the bow on the front could easily be removed with a seam ripper if bows aren't your thing.

    30DD

    Didn't fit

    I've tried 6 different styles and sizes from Skarlett Blue ranging from 28DD to 30D and 30DD, but unfortunately there seems to be a lot of inconsistencies in the sizing of this brand. While some styles have been far too tight, this style, the Honey Multi-Way, and the Entice Balconette all run too big. They measure as 32 bands-- that is, the unstretched measurement is consistent with a 30 band, but due to the stretchiness of the band, they fit as a 32. As a result, none of these ended up working for me.

    This looked like a nice simple molded cup bra, but I had ... issues with both the cups and the wings. The cups seemed to have a strange shape and were a little too closed off at the top, so while they were big enough, they cut into my roots. The wings are made from extremely flimsy lace and made the large band feel even looser.

    Sadly, if you're looking for a true 30 band, this is not for you. I would not recommend sizing down in this bra either since the flimsy band does not seem like it would hold up over time.

    The Honey had the added dubious distinction that this was one ... of the first bras I've tried where the gore doesn't feel like it tacks. This is very rare for me as I almost never have problems with the gore, since I have a relatively average breast shape and spacing. If it were not for the weird gore and the grossly oversized band, I would've enjoyed this bra. The cups had a nice shape, and the lace U back was very attractive. Sadly, if you're looking for a true 30 band, this is not for you. This would fit a 32D quite well, so if you can size down in the band to your sister size, it's a beautiful everyday bra.

  16. Condesa Balconette Underwire (314135)

    The Condesa Balconette was the first style I tried from Skarlett Blue, and I enjoyed it so much that I've tried a number of different styles from this brand. Sadly, this is the only one that worked out for me, and since my cup size increase, it is now too small.

    The band here is the only one I have tried from Skarlett Blue that I would say is TTS for a 30. It is 1.2" smaller unstretched than all the other 30 band styles I tried (except the Fresh Convertible Stretch Cotton, which was problematically off-spec). This is actually why I liked the bra so ... much in the first place. The band is made from stretch mesh and has an enclosed elastic on the upper and lower edges. The cups are single layer sheer lace in a lighter color, and have contrast embroidery that matches the band and trim. This is a single vertical seamed cup construction, and it gave me a nice shape when I was a smaller 30D. Unlike many vertical seamed cups, this one is a bit more closed at the top, which made it fit me perfectly at the time. Now, it is too small and cuts into my roots. The wires also sit a bit funny at the gore since it is no longer the right size for me, but I think this fit fine when I got it.

    Overall, it's a very nice looking novelty style that could actually be worn on a regular basis. It provides a decent amount of support given the construction and the sheer cups, and the embroidery is surprisingly not scratchy.

    ==============

    28E Revised Comments: Due to an increase in cup size measurement, now the cups are too shallow for me. When the band is worn on the tightest hook, the cups squish all my tissue and flatten me out. This is the same problem I had with the Minx Balconette and Entice Balconette, so it's probably safe to say that Skarlett Blue unlined balconnets are too shallow and don't work for me.

    Didn't fit

    I've tried 6 different styles and sizes from Skarlett Blue ranging from 28DD to 30D and 30DD, but unfortunately there seems to be a lot of inconsistencies in the sizing of this brand. The main problem with this bra is the band size, which is just plain incorrect. The unstretched band measures smaller than the 28DD Minx Unlined Balconnette I tried, and it measures over three inches smaller than the three other styles I tried in a 30 band. Furthermore, while the band fabric was stretchy, the stitching along the elastic was way too tight and restricted the stretch of the bra. I did ... not take a stretched band measurement because I was afraid of breaking the stitches, but I was just barely able to get this on and hooked!

    Because of the tight band, the underwires dug into my ribcage painfully, though otherwise the shape of the cups was quite good. The cups were very thin and flimsy, but they looked pretty good on. I believe this was an intentional design detail and not an indicator of quality. Sadly, the band is truly a quality issue. I ordered two of these, thinking the first one must be a flaw, but sadly found both bras had the same stitch tension issue in the band.

    Because of the tight band, the underwires dug into my ribcage painfully, though otherwise the shape of the cups was quite good. The cups were very thin and flimsy, but they looked pretty good on. I believe this was an intentional design detail and not an indicator of quality. Sadly, the band is truly a quality issue. I ordered two of these, thinking the first one must be a flaw, but sadly found both bras had the same stitch tension issue in the band.

    XS

    Didn't fit

    I recently had a good experience with an unwired bralette and was interested in trying more. I saw this one on the Nordstrom Rack website and decided to try it. However, this was wrong on so many levels.

    The main problem with this bralette is that the sizing is totally off. Skarlett Blue caught my attention initially because they make 28 bands and 30 bands, and I've tried them both. The 28 band measured around 21.5" and the 30 bands measured around 23-24.5" unstretched, so I find that their band sizing is pretty true to size. However, this XS band measures 26.2", which would ... put it at a 32 band size, however I managed to stretch it easily all the way to 37"!!! No idea how this is supposed to correspond to an XS if the brand's range starts at a 28 band. Needless to say, the band was huge on me and provided no support, despite being made from a very wide piece of elastic. I'd say this band is more accurately a M, but definitely nowhere close to XS, where the stretched measurement should be around 30" or less.

    The second problem is that the straps on this bra are not adjustable. I've never seen a bra that didn't have adjustable straps. I am beyond baffled by this design detail. Since the straps weren't adjustable, there was no way for this to fit me as I always have to adjust my straps. Not sure how this will work for anyone except someone whose measurements fit this bra exactly since your torso can't be longer or shorter than what the straps dictate.

    The third oddity about this bra is that the cups have no shaping whatsoever, and they are just a double layer of stretchy jersey fabric that don't have much lifting or shaping qualities. Thus, the bra can't provide any shaping at all. The effect is similar to a training bralette designed for young girls. Again, baffling. I would estimate that this size XS would fit a large 32 band, A-C cups, or a smaller 34 band, AA-B cups.

    This is one of the most poorly-designed garments I've come across, although the fabric and workmanship are OK. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone unless you try it on in person and it happens to fit you exactly, and you are looking for this kind of light natural support with no shaping. It is made from soft and stretchy microfiber, and I would imagine it could be a very comfortable bra, but only if it fits!
