If you have comments regarding my shape and whether I've got any of this wrong, please tell me! I am new to this
I really liked this bra in the store, but that was before finding out about UK sizes (and everything else!!!). It fits OK but I need probably 1-2 cups bigger as I measure out at a 28F/30E. It is a very comfortable bra, if it fits correctly and gives huge left for not a ton of padding. My issues other than sizing are that I am FoB so the padding is too much for me and I'm also full in the center (splayed out) so the plunge causes me to fall out somewhat.
This bra looks great, but I can only wear it for short periods of time. The material conforms to the breast nicely and gives a good lift but is not at all breathable and makes the breast sweat. The sweat has nowhere to go and soon you're left feeling itchy and stinky. This the only bra in which I have had this reaction in all my years of wear. I often have to remove the bra midway through the day because the discomfort becomes intolerable.
This bra has an incredibly stretchy band. Mine stretches out an inch beyond its stated size and would probably stretch further. It's very comfortable and soft. The cups are fairly narrow but deep. I would suggest sizing down in the band by a size. This is not a terribly supportive bra. I have considerable bounce when I walk and it doesn't contain my breasts on the sides. For a lazy day bra, this is perfect. I would love to find something like it in my actual size.
I bought this "used/pre-owned" off of eBay, though the seller said she only wore it briefly to try on. It looks just about brand new. When I first took it out of the package, I instantly fell in love with the color!!! It's such a pretty purple!! And I love the pleats on the cups. And the fabric is SUPER soft! It's like a micro fleece material, so so soft!
But I don't know why I keep buying these 32DD bras from VS thinking they're gonna fit! This bra was way too small! I usually wear a 32DDD in VS but was looking for a lot more cleavage, ...so I decided to go down a cup size (my Incredible is a DD and gives me the best cleavage ever, tho the bra itself is def too small). But I can't swing it with this model. My nipples are being cut in half by the top of the cup digging in causing massive, ridiculous quad boob!! Haha, not even slightly attractive! I honestly don't even know if I could do my usual 32DDD in the Fabulous, considering how small this one is! It's a shame, cuz I'm really loving this bra. Everything about it is perfect! It would make a killer t-shirt bra, with an extra boost and nice cleavage, it's unbelievable comfortable (did I mention how super soft this bra is?), and the color is beautiful!! Another thing I like about this bra is the tightness of the band. I usually have a hard time with VS 32 bands, but settle for them cuz I don't have much of a choice in their brand (why won't you make a smaller band, and cups larger than DDD, for the love of God Vicky?!) Lol!! But the band on this seemed pretty snug and tight.
If you can fit into this, I highly recommend the Fabulous line! I think I'm gonna try a 32DDD anyway just cuz I love everything about this bra. The padding wasn't over the top either like most of their padded plunges, it was just enough. Ahhhh, sigh. If only I could get this bra in a 28G! I might have to start getting crafty with my VS bras and whip out the sewing kit!! Buying 34DDD's and shortening the band Read more 280 more words
