this was another one of adventures in 36C's some a year or two ago before i had any idea what was supposed to fit, and obviously being a 34 DD bordering on DDD, it didn't work then and doesn't work now. Its worth noting that this pattern is discontinued, so I'm not sure if any minor differences exists with current models.
Appearance wise, i love this bra. The floral is very muted with pink/red roses and flowers, along with a sort of faded neon yellowy-green rose and leaf pattern. There is a small embellished lace sling along the outer cups that doesn't show under t-shirts, unless they are the ... burnout variety, then you see the sparkle.the entire band is lace, (I'm pretty sure all Dream Angels are) and the straps have the tiniest picot-ish trim. There's also a small neon pink bow on the gore.
The fit is awful, however. This is the size VS put me in, and it was so painful that i literally cannot wear it for more than about 5 minutes...which is just long enough to love it in the fitting room, get it home, and rip all the tags off. I tried wearing it for the first time a few days after i got it, and i actually had to turn around and come home so i could change, ugh. It does give some killer cleavage when i first situate myself in it, but also major quadboob. Most of the cup is taken up with padding, so there inst much room for breast tissue. The center is also very open, since its a plunge style push up. Combine that with the very minimal side coverage, and there be boobies spilling out all over the place! it is set a little wider than Very Sexy bras, so its slightly better for me. sliiightly.
The band is made of lace, something i liked because i knew from purchasing the Lined Demi version of the Dream Angels line that the lace was stiffer, and didn't give me the awful rolling of the Very Sexy. However, it also has very little stretch, which meant that the first few wears were too tight, and then once it got worn, it never snaps back and becomes too large very fast. Even in my proper size, these bands always feel sooo tight when they're lace, like I'm being cut in half. but sizing up doesn't help, because of the "once I'm broken in I'm broken" thing they have going on.
Ultimately, this went back in the drawer until i can sell it off. I hear from many friends that they love the push up this gives, and if someone is truly a 36c or 34c, it probably does work well.
