I am in love!! Prepare yourselves for a very long rave.
This bra is magic. I want to sing. It's just about everything I've ever wanted in a bra. I haven't measured it yet because I put it on as soon as it arrived today and I refuse to take it off. I'll get to it.
I was honestly about to give up on unlined bras, but this one is it for me. So comfortable! No wrinkles! Perfect wires! It even gives me enough side support, which is where many bras that 'fit' lack for me. I'm ordering it in two or three more colors right now (it's the first bra ...to fit that isn't discontinued yet! Woo!). I swear, I could cry. AND it's the least expensive bra I've bought (that wasn't from a fellow Bratabaser, that is). I can't speak to its durability yet, but if it doesn't hold up terribly long, I won't be too heartbroken at this price point.
The stretch lace cups are very adaptive, and give my slouchy, conical breasts a surprising amount of lift and rounding, while still looking natural. It definitely allows for a good bit of jiggle, but in a much more comfortable and secure way than my Natori Feathers. It actually makes my boobs look bigger (even through clothes) by some sort of witchcraft I cannot explain. And the lace is sooo soft! The gore is nice and wide enough to prevent any wrinkling or gapping, which is basically a miracle in my far-spaced center-shallow world. This is also a true demi, and it is VERY low cut. On me, it is as low as it can possibly be without my areolas peeking out, and they try. Be warned.
The band is probably a bit too large (my snug underbust is 26" and this is supposedly a 32), but I'm surprised to say it is actually staying in place pretty well. I think it helps that the cups allow for enough immediate projection, so my boobs don't move them around to find more space. There is only one row of hooks in the back, and I'm thinking it would be pretty simple to alter the band a bit smaller if need be. I have it on the tightest hooks currently.
The straps are wonderfully long and fully adjustable. Little thing I love that most bras don't do: the adjuster section starts at the -front- of the bra instead of the back, so you don't have to take it off to tighten/loosen them. Awesome.
If you are much larger, more center-full, or close-set, I can't say whether or not this would fit and support you well. But if you're similar to me... try it. Trust me. I measure about 26DD (almost always wearing 28D), so I didn't think this 32C would fit very well, but apparently it runs small in the cups and band. Size up for sure.
Note: These bras are made of a somewhat shimmery material, so the wine color is actually not such a bright red as it appears in my photos. It's a little bit darker and duller in person -- which I really prefer. Read more 412 more words
I've written reviews for this bra in two other colors, so you can refer to those for more info. The difference in this one is that the band is a bit tighter (yay!). The wires are also a little shorter for some reason, but it isn't a problem because the side support is still great. The depth is inbetween that of my wine (shallowest) and my chocolate (deepest).
So, yeah. I have three of these now, and I am very happy! They are just total magic for small busts (especially if you are set further apart and have most of your fullness on bottom and/or outsides like I do). I will probably order even more in the future as well. Probably one in beige and then another in white with the intention of dying it navy blue or deep violet. Getchu one!
I really love these bras. They're incredibly comfortable and form-fitting, and they do everything I want an unlined bra to do for me. I'm realizing that the band definitely is a bit too large for me (I have a snug underbust of 26. These run a little bit small for their number, but not that small), but as I said in a previous review, it doesn't cause much of a problem for me. The band doesn't really ride up, but it isn't as snug as I would like.
The chocolate color seems to have slightly deeper cups, so it does not provide me with the same amount of lift ...and rounding as the wine colored one I have does, but I am still happy with it. The band is also seems to stretch about half an inch larger than the wine, unfortunately. Eventually, I will get up the guts to try to alter the bands down so these fit absolutely perfectly. The gore on this one is a tenth of an inch narrower, as well.
See my other review for a more in-depth rave about why I love these so much. As stated there, definitely size up in the cup and possibly the band when ordering. I typically wear 28D (60D), and the cups of the 32C (70C) fit me perfectly.
Note: These bras are made of a somewhat shimmery material, so the color is actually a bit darker in person than it appears in photos (mine, as well as the model photos seen on Amazon). Read more 146 more words
As others have said, this is a flattering, comfortable bra for small breasts. It's also very forgiving of size changes during the month. It doesn't provide a lot of support or structure, obviously, but I don't really need it for my chest, so that works for me. It also runs pretty small, because I'm normally a 30C, so this is a band size and a cup size larger but fits nicely. It's an instant favorite for me because it's really difficult for me to find wires that are wide enough without having cups that are too big or too deep. The lace isn't obvious under clothing. The straps are a little far apart, which is fine for me since I have wide shoulders, but for a narrower 30 band that might be a problem. Overall, success!
Oh my Lord, finally I've found an underwire bra that makes my wide root, shallow boobs look great and is super comfortable. I usually have trouble with the gore sticking me but this one is just right. I'm a newbie to ABTF and previously thought I was a 34-36A or B. Come to find out I'm actually more like a size 34C/32D depending on brand. I'm definitely ordering more colors in this style.
This bra has a stretch cup, so the depth measurement is as worn on me. It's impressively supportive considering the seamless stretch construction, and gives a very smooth, rounded shape. The sizing seems to be pretty forgiving - I tried a cup size down as well and it was skimpier but the shape was similarly excellent and it didn't cut in at the top. The band doesn't ride up when worn even though it's a size or two too big, but this may be because I have an athletic build with broad shoulders. My one concern is that the stretch lace feels pretty delicate, and the stretch provides ...the entirety of the support, so I'm not sure how well it will last.
Edit: A few months in, it's still insanely comfortable but the shape is a little softer and less supported. I suspect the stretch lace is going to continue losing its spring over time, so it looks like my concerns about the durability were about right. Tightening the straps does help since all the support comes from the tension in the cup, but this is never going to be a "heavy lifting" kind of bra. Read more 87 more words
This bra is relatively comfortable, and cute. It would be good for individuals who need light support, and who are prone to quad-boob, as the lace is flexible and allows the breast rest comfortably within the cup.
Unfortunately for me, the breast tissue pokes out of the side (and when I scooped and swooped, almost my entire breast rested atop the bra). I require a much larger size, I believe!
This bra is gorgeous. I get a fantastic shape while feeling both unencumbered and supported, which is a fantastic combination. The band definitely runs a size small: I’m dead on a 32D size in most brands and I was forced to go to a 34c to get this bra. I’m very glad I did though.
I will say that if you’re looking for nipple coverage, this ain’t it. This bra covers about half of my areola. Given that I’m looking for as little fabric I do consider this a plus, but it’s definitely something to note. Because I got a breast reduction I do not have very shallow and self-supporting breasts, so I’m not sure how well this would work on someone with softer tissue.
In my opinion, these are the sexiest bras for smaller breasts. Something magic about the way they're cut plus the nice stretchy-yet-firm lace fabric they use enhances and shapes really nicely without a bit of padding or pushup. Plus they're very comfy.
