A nice, plain white molded cup push-up bra with built-in pads and removable straps. It fits pretty good, with a very small amount of bubbling on my large side (left), but not so much to reject it. I do wish it had more than one set of hooks and loops.
I am adding this bra for data/informational purposes only. This Bra is not owned by me at the time of addition to the database.
This one was a seamless soft and stretchy white unpadded bra. I did not take photos when I had it, sorry.
Cup Depth as measured by: 1 Hovering the cup between the knees, then placing the tape measure into the cups without any resistance. This measurement is: 10”
2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance. This measurement is: 13”
I feel these two figures give you a general idea of ...the minimum and maximum depth that the cup can accommodate, just like the flat and stretched band measurements do with bands. Since Bratabase only has one cup field, I enter the larger of the two, as it’s this larger number that determines if a cup is going to fit me or not since I am on the max end of the cup scale, but do realize that some may need the lower number to determine fit for their needs, so I will always include both figures in the reviews for full disclosure.
I fell in love with this bra after seeing it on a website but the price was too high. I finally found it on sale and this was the only size available that is close to mine.
The band fits well and is very comfy with extra padding underneath the hooks. I do find the ribbon along the bottom of it to be kind of annoying since it tends to roll but it is still beautiful. It is a firm fit as well and doesn't feel like it will stretch excessively. It is similar to Cleo bands, IMO, but without the initial scratchy feel.
The cups are lightly ...padded which is exactly what I want. I have several unlined bras now and I still have my push-up bras so I need something in between those two styles and this is perfect for that. The overall style is retro and it has a retro feel as well. The lift is better than any of my other bras (you can tell in the photos. My boobs are just... higher) and the appearance under my knit shirts is great. Not pointed, not too rounded like a molded cup - just up and rounded enough. My larger size is kind of busting out of this though and it has made me seriously consider whether or not to keep it. The smaller side fits pretty darn well and the width is perfect on both sides. The center doesn't fully tack so I need to wear it around the house for more than a few minutes to see how much it might slide down/around.
Overall this is my favorite bra that I have ever tried on. The ribbons and the cups are so unique and it is sturdy and well-made. I like it MUCH better than the unlined version which looked messy and just wrong. It comes in other colors and if this one works out, I will be getting those as well. Read more 220 more words
This is the second size i have tried in this style of bra and while the band and cup depth/width are perfect, the separation is too much and looks sloppy. It also gives a terrible look under clothes. I will have to return it but wanted to add it here as this particular style of Triumph bra had no fit information at all on bratabase.
One other thing - the sizes are all mixed up. This was listed on bare necessities website as a 34F when it is, in fact, a 34E. I even checked Triumph's website and it does not list an E cup at all. The sizes go D,DD,F,G. So keep this in mind if you are planning to buy a Triumph bra.
I got this because I have a 34DD Triumph that fits very well, but I thought a 32E might fit more snugly and last better. I was wrong; this band is just too tight. It is a very different style than my 34DD Amourette, so ymmv with Triumph sizing.
While it's billed as a full-cup bra, it looks like a demi on all the models. It looks like a full-cup bra on me, and a bullet bra at that: my breasts just fill the 3-part cups without stretching or relaxing the material into a natural shape. Pointy pointy.
The center gore is also angled in such a way that it pulls my breasts too far apart, and I ache a bit just from trying it on for this review. Not for close breasts.
I think someone with much fuller breasts than mine could fill it out, smoothing the silhouette and showing rounded breast over the top of the cup. I still think the model shots that look like a demi are misleading.
