Well, the Fabulous bra is my favorite style from VS, but I cannot wear it! Literally, ONLY THIS BRA, the material it's made with, it does not breathe AT ALL. all my other VS bras, totally fine. the Fabulous bra, every time I wear my beautiful white & nude lacy bra, my boobs always end up sweaty! it really sucks! other than that, this bra provides fabulous lift. best style ever, but I always end up gravitating towards the Very Sexy style my boobs don't end up sweaty. it really bums me out. aside from the sweat problem, this bra is really comfortable.
Has anyone else had the problem with sweaty boobs with the Fabulous style? I know it's the type of material/padding they use, because all of my other bras breathe just fine.
Very shallow on the bottom. I have lots of projection on the bottom so the cups slid down on my chest. Also this bra's inner cup line started to curl out after the first week of wearing (no wash yet), but hasn't gotten worse. Otherwise this was a good bra, just not for me.
despite that this is from my 36C days, i still LOVE this bra. However, this is from when the Fabulous line first came out, and it has since been entirely re worked, including making the band out of that awful super stretchy material used in the Very Sexy line that i HATE. UGH.
Appearance: The pictures lie about the color, its a very true red rose lace, deep and lovely, and it comes just slightly over the top edge of the cup. The cup beneath the lace is pink, as is the cup lining. there are small no-show pleats on the inner portion of the cup, which are harder ...to see in the lace models and don't show under shirts. the tons of red rhinestones along the top of the cup though, do. This doesn't lay flat under shirts, but its fine under thicker things and dresses. the band is also covered in the same red floral lace. There is a small row of 3 rhinestones on a metal piece on the band. The straps are a matching dark red and satiny.so in short, this is beautiful!
Fit: Well, this isn't my right size, and its stretched form wearing it, so the fit is obviously completely off. the band is way too large, and when i scoop into the cups i get serious quad boob. But, it has potential in the right size. the cups are at least higher on the sides than most VS bra, and the band is taller around than normal. the straps are comfy and don't slip or sit too far out for me, plus they attach in a slight "ballet back" instead of right to the straight part of the band, and i think that helps them stay put.
The cup has a creme padding, which is very unique, and warms as you wear it. This is supposed to mean that it can "fill in" to the places where you might be lacking, which is actually does. its not dramatic, but you can take the cup in your hand and smooth it towards the side, top, etc and fix minor issues. i liked it because one breast is slightly smaller, so i could fix some of the gaping. this does mean that the bra isn't comfortable for hot temperatures- for some reason i feel sweaty in it during the summer, I'm guessing because you're warming the cream with your body temp and it doesn't wick away.
The band is what i like most here- its stretchy, but thick enough so it doesn't roll at all no matter how tight i pull it. I wish this material was still what they used because i would get this bra in my right size in a heartbeat When i pull it tight enough , i get some awesome natural looking cleavage(and a little side boob, so sue me)! however, scooping definitely means i overspill. i didn't notice it so much when i was first wearing it, but recently i think I've started to get my tissue migration fixed and as a result there's more breast tissue that needs cup space.
i wish this bra was around to still recommend, because i love it. it came in a million different colors, laces, and embellishments, and it gives a great shape. The new ones just don't work for me because of the heinous band, but if you dont mind them you may find success. i'll invest in a rixie clip and keep this one Read more 482 more words
Could be a sizing issue as I don't think I'm a true 32DD (probably should be 30E/DDD-but this was the closest I could get in an off-the-shelf bra around here), but I seem to have quadriboob in the center of the "plunge" (maybe plunges are just not for me-full on bottom?) and bulged up top a bit after swoop & scoop (settled later). The straps are too wide and digging into my armpit right where the strap meets the cup, there is some poorly placed lace on the sides of the cup, which is rubbing and actually giving me redness/rash. Still fits a million times more comfortable than ...the 32C/34B's I thought I was! I suppose that's why I was thrilled with it at first, til I started noticing all these issues as the day went on. Some might like this aspect, but it gives me a rounded, broad shape, just not the most flattering silhouette on my short frame IMO, just makes me look stocky! Keeping because it's the best thing I have right now, but personally would not rebuy. Read more 76 more words
I tried this bra in a 32D but noticed some quad boob. So I bought a 32DD which I have never done before. It fit much better but on both these bras I had to pull the straps all the way and they were already riding up in the back (which probably should have told me not to buy it). I asked the fitter and she said it looked ok. Once I began to wear the band easily wore out like maybe a month and it was loose. The cups started out alright, they were filled and i had minor gaping after I wore it all day. Now ...they gap when I first put it on. If I would have bought the 32D it would have lasted me longer.The center doesn't quite lay flat still. I find the cups on this are a little high and go up under my arms but the wires do not poke. This bra for some reason makes me sweat, which honestly I hate. Even after washing it it has retained a funky smell, I have never had this problem before. This bras saving grace for me however is it is comfortable fabric and it gives a great round shape under shirts. Read more 100 more words
