I had no idea what my real bra size was, when I bought this. At the time I believed I was a 23B/C. Clearly, these cups are far too small though.
It's a very pretty bra, sleek and more comfortable than most strapless bras. The cup lining is lined with super soft fabric that feels great to the touch. (I am very sensitive to fabric). It is worth noting that it is a convertible and comes with a set of black straps. There are 8 places around each side of the back of the band, where the bra can be hooked. For someone with the right size and ...shape, this would be a fantastic push-up bra, giving tons of cleavage. I rated it's appearance "meh" on me, but on the right body, this could look awesome.
My biggest complain with this bra is that when using the straps, they frequently and easily slide out of the back slots. I have two models of this, in two different sizes, and this happens with both of them.
The stretched band is only 30 inches, so it actually fits like a 30, not a 32. There is only one thin strip of rubberized material at the top of the band though, so slippage is an issue when worn strapless, despite it having the unusual feature (for a B cup) of having 3 hooks per row.
It's difficult to judge the gore because a) it is hard to determine what is actually considered the gore and b) it seems it was not made to sit flush against the chest. The bottom 1/2 inch does, but then there is a loop and crisscross of fabric that happens right above that. Every other bra I have tried on or own sits flush for me, so this is unusual.
Fits my shallow breasts well and definitely gives them some extra oomph! Gore tacks at the bottom but not at the top, but with the construction of this bra, it doesn't look like it's supposed to tack at the top. Not quite as firm in the band as the Felina Bra of the Year, but still doesn't require too much adjusting throughout the day.
Pulls boobs foward and puts strain on back and neck. Compresses breast tissue. Go with larger cup size. Side profile is sort of pointy. Good under formalwear when you want to make a BIG statement. Not good under t-shirts.
I have small breasts that separate leaving a wide space in between. I bought this strapless bra because of its push up ability. Unfortunately, it doesn't do much push up without assistant (see pictures). I bought this self-adhesive strapless and backless bra though eBay (from china) for $3 with shipping to wear under my tank tops. The adhesive lasted for only one use (expected that for the price I paid). I needed another use for it. Through trial and error, I realize this go great with my Victoria bombshell multi way strapless bra. It helps gather my breast fats (which are one the sides near my armpit) ...together. Then I put the Victoria bra over it, which gives me smooth look.
This is a great method if you want a fuller top (cleavage). This is the only method that works for me. I don't do this everyday (only for those special dress that only looks right with cleavage). On other days I rock my small breast without a bra.
Overall the bra doesn't do much for small breasts unless you use my method. Read more 76 more words
