    Hasn't set fit

    It's a good bra, good for everyday use. The cups are a little close together for me, but I'm a transgender woman and my breasts are far apart and side heavy, while shallow near the center and top.

  2. Lace Piquant Underwire (75-164)

    Hasn't set fit

    This is the same model of Vanity Fair bra that I wore in the 1980's in my late teens/early 20's. It's way to small to fit me but it would have back then. The Lace piquant (75-164) has been discontinued for years I've read somewhere. And on the label it says Made in USA. And I know now that Vanity Fair is made over seas.The underwire cups are unlined and have a diagonal seam with stretch lace on top and stretchy nylon below. The stretch straps adjust in the front.
    Pretty neat seeing one of these again. Brings back memories!

  3. Illumination Zoned In Support Underwire Bra (76338)

    Didn't fit

    This is an extremely wide wire and band . This had close-ish to the cup volume I needed but no where near the projected narrowness and actual support needed for my heavy pendulant breasts. This bra left marks under my arms where the wires would poke along with the gouges in my rib. I was more than amazed with my next bra of polish descent but made me more confused of my usa size.

    This bra's measurements have been altered
    I threw it away in a fit of fit fittings!

    This bra seemed to be an ok bra but the cups were a bit too small for my boobs. . Seems like a medium quality bra. I used to love Vanity Fair bras. My 1st underwire bras were Vanity Fair's back in junior high school.

    Fits

    It gives really good projection which is very hard to find with a bra when one has big boobs.

    Made of cotton.

    Has four hooks

    Very comfortable to wear

    Updated on Jun 28, 2014 Flag this


    • The bra is a Vantiy Fair

    • The style number is 1722

      Sorry I was not able to include this when I did the listing as I am new here and could not fill out the review as it should be done.

    • I like the coverage and the shape of this bra.

    • I did not think large breasted women would really wear a bra like this. It is one thing to have huge projection, but to the sides and not the front?
      I am a guy and need to wear bras because a severe side effect of meds I need made my chest larger.

    Didn't fit

    The center gore doesn't lie flat and the cups don't properly cover my breasts.

    The bra is comfortable and none of it itches or irritates my sensitive skin.

    The cup material is soft and the vivid dark blue is beautiful.

  7. Body Sleeks Full Coverage Contour Stretch (75-266)

    The cup and band are comfortable, but the cups are too far appart which is uncomfortable because my boobs are closer together.

    I'm not fond on the fabric's quality and it makes you sweat, it feels like plastic. It looks good underneath the clothes but I don't feel too confident about the material.

    The straps are way too thick, it feels like two small ropes together, it's 0.5cm thick and 1.7cm wide, I can't wear this bra with strappy tops or anything with cleavage because it shows too much and looks awful.

    My breasts couldn't quite fill this bra out, but if you are wide-set with a low gore(?) I would definitely recommend. It's very comfortable.

    34D

    Didn't fit

    A molded cup, full coverage, underwire bra. This was my favorite bra for a long time (until pregnancy/nursing changed my shape). Looks great under a T-shirt. Reasonably priced and easily available. Often available in fun colors (seasonally).

    _____________________________

    UPDATED REVIEW JULY 2019
    About this Bra

    Purchasing:
    * Paid $21.55 on Amazon with free Prime shipping & returns (not Amazon Wardrobe)
    * Available in white and beige.


    Band:
    * opaque stretch knit
    * Elastic at top of band.
    * Wing support: no seaming nor boning
    * 3-piece band, short gore (nearly a plunge, but not quite that low)
    * Back close with 3 columns of hooks.

    Straps:
    * front is same non-stretch knit as cups, ... back is smooth elastic
    * front part is stiff (stand up on their own)
    * full adjust
    * straight back

    Cups:
    * seamless molded foam full cup
    * unpadded, flexible underwire
    * Outer fabric is a non-stretch knit with a damask floral pattern. Inner fabric is a smooth, non-stretch knit.


    Fit

    About me: petite with wide horizontal oval, slightly conical breasts
    * average projection
    * wide-set (3 fingers width of space between breasts)
    * very wide roots (extend past the mid-axillary line)
    * even horizontal fullness (just barely outer full)
    * short root height, average vertical placement
    * mix of firm & soft tissue (front molds to shape of bra, sides push wimpy wires away)
    * conical shape (but will squish to round)
    * full on top (2/4 shape, not even or very full) - BUT functionally even to FOB due to short roots and soft tissue
    * petite (5'3") so have narrow frame
    * front (anterior) rib flares

    Band:
    * length: good
    * wings: too short
    * axillary skin spillage

    Gore: Comfortable, tacks, good spacing, height fine.

    Cup:
    * Gives breasts a round, projected shape.
    * Wires too narrow. Breast pushes the flexible wire away from body. Even when I manage to scoop all tissue inside the wire, it just leaks out again.
    * Top of cup smooth
    * Bottom of cup: filled

    Straps:
    * not too far apart
    * barely adjust short enough to prevent slipping when new (when stretched out, do not adjust short enough)

    Appearance Under Clothing:
    * Smooth under a thin T-shirt.
    * Not visible under a v-neck.
    * Barely visible in armholes of sleeveless shirt (only with extremes of movement).

    Assessment and Plan:
    * When my breasts were firmer (before pregnancy & breastfeeding), this bra was a favorite, particularly under T-shirts and tank tops.
    * Now, the wires lack the strength to keep my breast tissue inside the cup making this bra uncomfortable to wear for very long. I often wear it on laundry day and scoop & sweep hourly.

    Hasn't set fit

    I wore this when I was till wearing the wrong size but it's a nice bra. For me, the cups seemed a little on the narrower size compared to other 36DDs I had owned. The convertible straps are are nice but I often had to loosen the straps as much as possible for the most comfortable fit.

    Didn't fit

    I bought this bra from a seller at poshmark.com. So it is used. It is also a vintage model from the 1980's I am pretty sure. I bought this bra in 40DD because that's the size that seems to working for me lately and also because it is close to the style of Vanity Fair bras that I wore back in the 1980's. (which I loved!) Even though it cost me less than $20 I was bummed that it didn't fit!https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> The 40DDcups were way small , so I never even got the bra all the way on!
    Here's my description of this bra, Black, 4 hook underwire bra with 2 part cups. with the upper cups being lace with minimal stretch. It has 5/8" straps that are only adjustable half the length.

    I originally got this bra used in hopes of altering the band to fit however that was a much bigger endeavor than I cared for and I realized the cups we're too small for me. I can't say how it fits as it is nowhere near my size but I imagine it is quite comfortable if it fits properly.

    This bra does not fit at all, but is the closest bra I have found and I wear it everyday. It offers no lift or support and my back aches all day. I would like to use this bra to compare other bras I post listings for "fitting help"

    Very pretty bra with a good fit but it's overall design is too large for my smaller frame. also the cups give an outward pointing shape.

    Vanity Fair has not made this bra in years. I found this one NOS on eBay. I have always loved this style and I have had more than a few. It is silky, smooth, and sexy. The lace is superb and the overall quality of the bra is excellent. It is almost a perfect fit, though I have had to bend the wires at the gore outward a little bit to prevent digging. If you don't swoop and scoop, the wires can dig a little on the outside, but if the swoop and scoop stays put, no problem.

    Was originally looking for 36DDD but VF doesn't go that high in a cup so I was recommended the sister size. At first the bra was annoying around my armpit though that might be due to the first time wearing a properly fitted bra or one of us adjusted to the other. It fits well & holds me in still after using it about 3 times a wk for months & the washes in the machine on delicate. Little to no adjustments with all day wear & I move a lot working with animals. Wish I could have gotten a 36 band to compensate the stretching of the band but it seems to have stop stretching.

    Hasn't set fit

    When I was finally fitted for a bra, this bra along with a few others I bought fit comfortably, one of the first times I had truly experienced that with a bra. However, as my breast tissue has migrated, it no longer fits. I now wear a bigger cup and smaller band. Wacoal no longer has any bras in my size, otherwise I would get one in this style.

    The fully adjustable straps are a godsend as I have a more petite torso. Most of the time bra straps are too long, making the bra droop.

    For those with this size, I highly recommend this bra.
