First off, this bra is soft, soft, soft. So comfy! The fiber content is 81% nylon 19% spandex but it feels like cotton. The cups are seam-free. It's also tagless! Nothing to rub or itch. Straps are ...fairly wide and not stretchy except for the adjustable portion in the back.
This is a wire free bra that I could wear to sleep in but also would not hesitate to wear outside of the house. The cups are moulded single layer fabric with side slings that extend from the straps to the band. They provide uplift that's surprising in a wire free bra and the side support is superb. I am getting no side boob at all wearing this. The band feels firm and supportive with 4 hooks in this size.
This bra is available in sizes 32D-44G US sizing. Small band women, don't dismiss this one yet. Soma uses +5 band sizing in their size chart and the cups are fairly generous in this brand. My best current size is 34G UK and in this brand 36G is very firm fit. In this bra the 36G felt a little tight and cut into my armpits so I sister-sized up. Finding my measurements on the Soma sizing chart, it puts me in a 38DDD, so I would say for a comfortable fit follow the chart. A 27" underbust would take a 32 band, 29" a 34 band, etc.
It's currently offered in 4 colors. I preferred the Vintage Pink to the Soft Tan colorway as it's closer to a nude for my very pale skin. The other colors are Black and Mochaccino which is more of a taupe than a true brown. Maybe they'll come out with a brown in the future.
I did notice that there is very little space in the straps for adjustment. I was able to get the adjusters over the seam attaching the elastic part of the straps to the strap fronts but I would not want to push them too much farther forward. My breasts are not set particularly high on my chest so for those of you who have short torsos or are high set this one may not work for you.
I found just one other minor problem with this bra, and that is that the wide elastic tends to flip up on itself. It doesn't bind uncomfortably when it does this though.
At $44 USD, this bra delivers comfort and support at a moderate price. It's available online and in Soma stores across the USA. You can frequently find it on sale if you are willing to buy more than one. Right now the website is offering these at 2 for $59. If you are in the market for wire free give this one a try.
Very short-waisted, center full, close set, somewhat narrow, immediately projected, shallow apex projection,...
Exceptional support for a wireless bra. the immediate projection is average but breasts can effortlessly move higher into the cup with no loss of support. The apex is in a grand location for less close-set breasts than my own. If it were shifted 1" toward the center, this would fit better. As it is, the gore width pushes my very center-full, close-set breats backward into the underarm seam. This is a very common occurrence for me in almost every bra.
I may update the photos after I have washed this. I suspect the apex wrinkles will disappear after the sizing has washed away.
This may have enough support for moderate exercise. Additionally, it is somewhat minimizing. It provides minimal nipple shielding. Overall, this is a great wireless option.
This size has been discountinued by the manufacturer, I don't know if the whole line has been, only know that they are not going to make more of this style in a 32D. Snagged these used, I got 3 for $12! They are actually very snug in the band, it's sort of like a long line on me so it's uncomfortable after long wear. Would be good on a longer torso. The straps barely get long enough. I have them as let out as they go. The beige matches my skin tone pretty well, but not perfect. After wearing this for a while at work I noticed that it is too long for me, much like a longline and the band feels too tight. I have conical, slightly uneven, FOT breasts. As most wireless bras it feels like it's pressing down on the top of my chest, but that is because mainly of my upper chest muscles. The cups are super stretchy, so they go from 6.5-8.5" in depth.
Thanks to finallygotboobs I tried this bra. Wow. Not only does it accommodate my immediately projected breasts, but it also accommodates my center projection and center fullness. Plus, the band is supportive on my 28" underbust. The synthetic material is soft and may be mistaken for cotton. Sadly, this bra is natural-fiber-free.
Straps are partially adjustable and may not accommodate the tallest/low-set among us. It seems they designed the straps for the high-set/ average/petite human. Sigh.
This is the most supportive wireless bra that is easy to exit that I've found. Kindred Bravely Organic Cotton Nursing Bra supportive, but it is not easy to exit. In humid ...weather, easy exit bras are prized.
This center gore is wider than other wireless models. Happily, the gore width does not impede the bra's ability to fit center-full, close-set breasts. It is a non-irritating seam on my somewhat sensitive skin. Additionally, a side sling is included to move tissue forward.
The band is 1.1" wide soft elastic and stretches to 33". 100% of the band stretches. I prefer non-stretch under the bust, but the support is admirable despite the elasticity. It is effortless to wear.
So, if you are looking for a comfortable, supportive wireless bra, add this one to your short list--if you fit the limited size range. Read more 108 more words
