I was surprised by how well this bra fit. The band fits well, and the straps are a set a semi-reasonable width apart (after wearing it more, I'd actually like them to be closer together, as they still fall down). There's no quadboobing or gaping at the top, which is a win for my wide-rooted, shallow boobs. The underwires are a little more rounded than the contour of my underboob, but the removeable cookies help with filling the space.
The bra reminds me a little of the 30DDD - Natori » Feathers Contour Plunge (730023), minus the lace (which I'm not a fan of). I love that it's a plunge, so I can wear it under more tops. The gore feels shorter than the Natori Feathers Plunge, which is nice.
I decided to try ThirdLove's bra to see how well they can actually fit. To be honest, I didn't expect much since I obviously not every bra will work for every person regardless of what a brand might tout. This bra was certainly no exception. In terms of what I did like about this bra: it felt well made, was quite comfy, and the range they offer for nude colors does feel inclusive. However, the bra shape is rather odd. I consider myself to have somewhat wide set breasts, but this bra was much wider than me. Perhaps part of it is that I still have a narrow ...root despite being a bit splayed. If I slid one cup/wire over so that it sat directly where my root was, it looked like it would fit and got rid of the issues with the cup cutting into the top of my breast. I would recommend this bra to someone who has VERY wide set breasts and probably average root width. I can't imagine this bra working for most people. I can see how it would have been much better than my pre-ABTF sizes though and why many women rave about the brand in general. I just hope they increase their cup sizing and not just their band sizings. I wear a US 30G in their brand an that's practically at the end of their range. My boobs are nowhere near large so a lot of women with large breasts are probably not able to fit in their bras, or at least not with having signs of poor fit. Read more 159 more words
When I first received this bra I was thrilled, it was so comfortable and fit perfectly (once I removed the inserts). The cups were too small with the inserts in, but removing them solved that issue instantly. The issue I came across was that after a single washing, the pockets where the inserts go no longer laid perfectly flat, and so the vertical seam became very itchy. I could feel it all day, and ultimately this bra was a miss for me. Most of their other plunge bras don’t seem to use inserts, so I’ll try my luck with a different model. The fabric is very soft and noticably higher quality than my 30DD - Parfait By Affinitas » Jeanie Plunge Molded Padded Bra ( Parfait Jeanie) bra, so I was sad to see it go. This bra also has the Thirdlove padded label, which made a big difference in comfort as well.
