It´s been a long time since I have posted a review and I wanted to make this one properly, with pictures and everything... So, here we go!
This bra is really beautiful and the colour combination is perfect for my skin tone.
However, as much as it pains me to say that, the fit is disastrous in my size range. I was warned that the bra runs tight in the band and the cups are wide and shallow, so I went up both band and cup size...
The wires are insanely wide - I mean, I know I have pretty narrow roots, so there always is some space left ... on the sides, but these wires are hurting my shoulderblades (pretty sure no one has breast roots that wide). Going down a cup size probably isn´t an option for me, because I have a lot of central fullness and I would have experienced spillage in a smaller cup.
The cups are quite tall, which is fine for people with high set breasts/a lot of upper fullness/both. The last category includes me. However, they are kind of tall even on the sides, which means the sides of the cups are hurting my arms a bit.
Also, since the wires take almost two thirds of the band length, the band is very tight. I normally prefer a 28 band, but this one is a touch too small. Two rows of hooks of an extender solve these most of these probems. And of course, I bent the wires to make the cups deeper and less wide.
The straps are positioned too wide for my frame, so they are almost falling of my shoulders. They are also quite narrow. The cups are halfpadded, so keep in mind you might experience in-cup quadding.
The reason I still want to wear this bra - I can´t really return it , plus, it doesn´t give me cleavage and is kind of minimizing, which is exactly what I need for some low cut dresses I own. And I love the look of the bra. And the cute heart shape things on the straps (not sure how they are called?). So, I´m gonna overlook all these issues mentioned above. Love makes us do crazy things...
