|Strap width||0.0 |
Received used from another user. The band is slightly stretched out and I need to wear it on the tightest hook set. The gore is a tad too wide and I will probably end up narrowing it. The straps are also as tight as they will go and they are still a little loose, may have to alter those as well.
I feel like this bra is more "full-coverage" than a "demi".

I got this bra in the mail a few days ago.
Now, I'm obsessed with the Body line because of the tempur-pedic-esque fabric they use, great colors, styles (I love the unlined in the Body also, but not a big fan of most other VS line's unlined that I've tried), simple, moveable, thin padding in all but the pushups naturally, and even though they're a band over what I require, the comfort level of this bra keeps me buying them.
The bra I recieved was one of the worst I've ever gotten (bad shape), quite a lot like a used Le Mystere I'd received a while back. Unwashed, stained and ... pilled underwires, pilled lace, lace pulled apart from the cup.
So, probably never buying used from ebay again, at least not without major descriptions and photos.
I did get this bra cleaned up with a toothbrush, some Oxy clean, scissors to the pilling, 2-3 handwashes and one machine wash-on hand wash setting, and that made it like new aside from the lace which I have yet to sew back to the cup.
I digress. Just. Ebay.sigh.
This is, as was my first bra in the beginning of this journey(a Body in 32D) my most comfortable bra.
Not my best bra mind you (that's my Deco Vibe amd Charm), but most comfortable where I CAN and do forget I'm wearing it.
That's what I love about this line. I wish so badly that they would start making smaller bands and bigger cups, but I realize that I'm somewhat alone with that.
That makes me sad but for completely selfish reasons because I really really love this line of VS bras and I'm already edging towards a 28 band.
They're dainty, the most comfortable bras I've ever owned, have a more natural shape for padded bras, and I have no fit issues even with the bigger band which when tightened on the second out of 4+ hooks, supports me.'
I do find that in DD up in this line of VS bras(haven't tried others-don't believe my favorites are even sold in 32DD) that since they add additional clasps(4+ usually) that the bands are more snug in my experience. They're not taut like some bras in 30E I've tried, but they're snug, on the first or second hook out of 4+.
I read a lot of people saying that ALL VS are shallow, overly padded, and too stretchy, but I don't experience any of that in the Body bras.
My first VS bra was an Ipex (also a Body bra) when I was 17 after getting a giftcard for my birthday. I didn't look around much because I felt odd in a lingerie store, and didn't go back until I was 19 or 20, stopped shopping at about 21, didn't go back until almost 3 years later.
I shopped there obsessively from 19-21, and they fit me over the bust and had me in 36B/C's, 34B, and their bras were almost all pushups- along with most other big name and department stores at the time. I clearly remember my disdain.
Since I've gone back, they've stocked up on 32 bands, have been sizing people right, educated on proper fit and sister sizing (a must if they're telling people they have a 30 inch ribcage) and selling bras more like the Ipex.
Again- I digress.
Personally, I need projection and narrow wires, and these are one of 2 lines of VS bras I've tried and both had narrow-average wires and one(this) allowed for projection and has similar padding to my Freya Hopscotch longline- just clearly different material.
No stiff padding like VS push ups though.
I will say that the wires are about average; they hit a spot on me that's further away than is necessary, but also not as far away as bras I've tried with clearly wide wires.
I do recall one more flimsy bra in their store that I tried in a 32DD that offered way too much projection for me, but I don't recall the line.
My biggest problem with VS/Pink-particularly, is the bras with wide gores. I don't have that issue with the Body bras.
Anyway, if you measure 31-32 inches, or don't necessarily need a lot of support (my boobs were doomed from birth and not heavy at all after losing 40lbs- if I were a nicer shape I'd go bra-less), are able to fit up to 32/38DDD/E (uk), need some, but not major projection, and need average wires, this would work for you.
I go back to VS because after trying out so many bras in my size (30e), sometimes I find that the shapes are all over the place, but VS Body bras have always fit me and are always super comfy.
This one gives me a more natural tear drop look, which I appreciate after weeks of wearing Decos(even though I admittedly LOVE the shape and Decos are overall perfect and my favorites, it makes me look like I have implants and old dudes never cease to stare me down in them -_-).
On the downside (?) I have low-set boobs and this doesn't really do anything to lift them, and is a bit minimizing. Probably due to having less projected cups and average wires, as opppsed to narrow, than a lot of my well fitting 30E's. Also the band isn't tight like my 30 bands, just stays in place, so I can imagine it'd be less supportive.
If you fit into 32DD (or 32-38A-DDD), and need average wires, slight projection and a band that isn't SUPER snug, the Body line should work for you.

This is hands down the SOFTEST bra I've ever put on. It is so comfortable, seriously. I wish the band came smaller because it would be a hit. But of course VS doesn't go below 32. Shallow, wide set friendly. Very pretty.
