*I won this bra in Bras And Body Image's giveaway. That in no way impacts my review.*
My. Broken. Heart.
Let me start off by saying that the Evelyn is possibly the most beautiful bra I've ever seen. I love the grey backdrop and the multi-colored umbrellas, which is a much more exciting alternative to the usual floral print! The pattern continues onto the straps, and the top of the cup is the most gorgeous lace.
However, in terms of fit this bra was a massive failure for me. My boobs refuse to sit in the bottom of the cups, leading to an inch or two of space at the bottom ... and resulting dents as the fabric buckles. The center gore, for whatever reason, is quite painful and jabs into my sternum as the day goes on. The straps are so wide set that even adjusted as tightly as possible, they slip off my shoulders. The shape, while not awful, was not wow-worthy (although that may have been impacted by the wonky fit). The Evelyn is completely wrong for my body type.
. . . But it's so PRETTY.
I'm going to fight through the pokey center gore and shallow cups because I'm absolutely enchanted by the appearance of the bra. This bra however, would work better for someone a little less full-on-bottom which much broader shoulders. Maybe a lady with a larger band/smaller cup size would find more luck?
