I bought this bra in both a 28B and 28C at the same time, because I'd never had a small enough band before and wanted to compare what cup size might be right for me. As I said for my 28B, it's a lovely bra, sturdy feeling, seems to stay up strapless in my initial testings, the dark nude color is quite nice, and I like that the rather bulky extra padding is removable. Surprisingly (to me, anyway), this still seems like the cup size might be too small for me! Again, even as someone who seems fairly shallow, I get a quad boob, though definitely less exaggerated than with the 28B. Everything else about this bra works for me; I like this model.
Trying to decide if I should stick with this or not, since it seems a 28D might be more ideal. Unfortunately, they don't carry this size, so I can't make an easy comparison!
Update: I've since tried the smooth Sascha in 30C, and the cup size was definitely better for me!
This bra is currently my best fitting bra, and I kind of love it.
So, I've tried the smooth Sascha in 28B, 28C, and 30C now. 28B was way too small to bother, and the 28C was better, but still gave me quad boob even without the pads. They don't make 28D (to my great disappointment), so I sized up to 30C. And finally, some cups that fit!
Honestly, the cups really are a great-feeling fit. No gapping even when I hunch my shoulders. No quad boob, with or without the pads. And while my bigger and smaller breasts fit slightly differently, they both work fine with or without different ...levels of padding. The underwire is nice and wide, which I've found I want. I should note that the gore doesn't tack perfectly, but it feels comfortable, and it's very nearly touching at the top, so I don't mind. I had problems with the 28C cups just barely coming up high enough to cover my nipples (which are not especially large), but that's fixed with this size.
My only (minor) issue is that, well, I'd still really like to try a 28D. As you may be aware, The Little Bra Company's bands are quite tight, so as someone with a ribcage in the vicinity of 26", I am just fine in their 28 bands. The 30 band is definitely acceptable - it doesn't ride up, it stays in place when I lift my arms, and the straps aren't doing any work holding things up (so, while I have yet to wear it out strapless, I'm pretty sure it'd be fine). But I just like the tighter feel of their 28 bands. It's not a huge deal, and when it stayed pretty much in place during a whole night of dancing (great test for a new bra), I knew I'd be keeping it.
I still have occasional problems with straps falling down, but I think that's just something about my shoulders. I like that I still have a small amount of cleavage without the extra padding, or more if I do put the cutlets back in. The shape it gives me is great.
The construction of the bra seems solid. The dark nude color matches me well enough. It's a great basic bra, so not the prettiest thing, but I like the look of it, particularly strapless. Read more 283 more words
This is probably the best strapless bra I've ever owned. It stays in place, and definitely gives my girls some lift. It's also very comfortable...with the straps on I've never had to adjust. It never rides up. It stretches just a bit over time but not much. This bra is definitely very small for a 32A. I'm normally a 28C or a 30B, but the 32A in this model fits me perfectly.
I've a tiny bit of a quad-boob, which sucks, but without padding it fits rather nicely. Comfortable and stays up all day. Not the cutest, but it looks structurally good at least, and I think it is as well.
For reference, my ideal size measures between a 28C/D with a 27.5" underbust and 31.5" around the bust. My left boob is a little larger than my right boob.
This is probably the best fitting strapless bra I have gotten in terms of cup size and band width. The band definitely fits like a 28 band and I am generally on the middle hook on this bra. I heard that the cups in this bra tend to run smaller than most other 30C cups...and therefore they fit me well! I tend to not fill many 30C cups all the way depending on the shape, but this Sascha bra seems ...to fit a shallower breast very well. My left side is a little more bulgey out of the top with the strap holding it up, but the right fits in perfectly. I can utilize the padded cutlet on the right to help balance.
One visual imperfection I noticed that happens when using the strap is that the hook in the cup where the strap attaches tends to pull upward and indent (see pic)...just a constructional flaw I noticed. If the hook was a bit higher near the top of the cup, or the cup wasn't as foamy, it might not dent as much. With the straps out, the cup looks smooth without indenting.
Lastly, this bra definitely gives my little boobs some oomph!! Definitely a good pushup factor and lifts them very well. Read more 131 more words
This is my best fitting bra! Usually @The Little Bra Company bras run too narrow for me and the wires dig in at the sides of my boobs, but this one is just right. I've ordered it twice now and it's my go-to bra.
I would usually take a 30 band, but since LBC runs small in the band, a 32 always works best for me. I can wear this one on the loosest hook when new. I've had this one for 4 months and have just progressed to the second hook, but I try not to wear it too much. I also own the Lucia and angela, but they are really uncomfortable! (underwires are too narrow)
This is the first sub-30 band bra I've ever tried, so my opinion of the fit is going to be a little skewed. It's a lovely basic bra, well made and sturdy feeling. I'm glad that some of the padding is removable, because there's quite a lot, if you want that! The cups are too small for me, and even as someone with rather shallow breasts, I get the "quad boob" effect. I was surprised at how well it seemed to stay up as a strapless bra, even with my fit issues. I also like the option of the dark nude color.
The band of the Sascha in black is extremely tight - I could not even extend it to 26 inches, so I was not able to try it on! The floral lace overlay is very nice, and the bra seems sturdily constructed. There is very heavy padding on the bottom of the cups (removable). It comes with removable straps as well.
My ideal size is 26D/DD, which sister sizes to 30B/C. The band on this bra runs tight for a 30 band (the ivory and black lace versions are tighter than the nude versions), but not tight enough for my 26" ribcage. The cups are also very shallow. I get some overspill on my larger left breast, so the cups definitely run a bit small for a 30C. The underwire fits perfectly. I have some very shallow breast tissue that extends at least an inch above the top of the cup. I guess I just need a strapless with taller cups. I will be trying the 32B and altering the band.
