I was really impressed with this bra and the support it offered. However, for me the 34K had a band that was too big and cups that were too small. Unfortunately Triumph do not make this bra above a K cup so either I compromise and settle on this slightly ill-fitting bra or I continue my seemingly never-ending search for a non-wired bra to wear around the house and in bed.
This is a good comfortable everyday bra. The 1" straps are comfortable and firm. I always keep them on the shortest setting to keep my bust high and minimise bounce. There is no underwire. The wings at the side are wide (5") and provide good support with their bone. This is a full bra and I can only wear it on the shortest hook setting.
I got this Triumph Doreen a few months ago as loved the idea of a red bra. In a 34H this is a bit tight for me although it does give a firm fit. Not too much bounce here. Having said that my boobs are rather squeezed in. Gives good projection and looks fine under most clothes. T-shirts rather give away the industrial structure of this bra though, both in terms of the 1" wide straps, side boning and the cup profile. I got this in a K cup as well now and that is definitely a better fit - but not available in red I understand.
This is my everyday bra. K is the largest cup size available at the moment for Triumph Doreen and 34" is the smallest band size. Oh how I wish they would just go down to a 32" and an L cup. This is a very supportive bra with bones at the side and no underwire to dig in. The cups give quite good coverage, just a little tight for me. Strange that on the K cup Doreen the double layer of fabric support between the cup stops about an inch short of the top, whereas in a larger band H cup I have it goes all the way to the top. Does anyone know why this is? I know I could get prettier bras in my size but most have an underwire and don't feel as if they give the same support.
Well made bra providing firm support, although I do wish they would extend the cup range beyond K. No underwires so comfortable under my bust. One inch wide straps stay in place though after years of carrying my heavy bust around they have left a 1" wide dent in my shoulders. Deep side is good but wish they would expand to four or five hooks at the back in the larger cup sizes.
Love the shape this gives and the awesome uplift - it is the only bra I have worn, out of Freya, panache, cleo, etc (underwired bras), that lifts my boobs from the bottom with no part of my breast touching my ribcage - so that is good. It sets your boobs further apart (at the point of the bra), but the pointed shape makes my bust look smaller. Although it is a high coverage bra, the pink colour looks nice on, it looks good under high necklines (I will try to add photo comparisons to my 2nd best up lift bra (one of the Cleo's)! I am a ...34H in the Cleo bras too, however due to the shape of this full cup bra, this 34H means that my boobs touch a lot in the middle (however there is no overspill at the top - so no quad boob look), so I think I will need to go up a cup size or two to allow the shape the work properly and get a bit more separation. Haven't worn it for a length of time yet - so will update after I have tried that! Read more 87 more words
