I purchased 2 of these T-shirt "Perfect Shape" bras in-store; a 32DDD and a 32DD because they had more fun, bright colors in that size. All they had available in the DDD were the basics - black, white and nude, as usual. The sales girl explained to me why that is and said they only receive very few of the larger sizes and they go quickly. But it takes about 2-3 weeks to order and receive more. But she also said that the DD would probably fit much nicer than expected because of the fuller coverage cut and shape of this particular bra. And I was reluctant to ... try it but she insisted and brought one with me to the fitting room. It was a much better fit than I expected.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this colorway!!! I bought the DD in the "Bon Voyage" Blue Marble with matching lace briefs...OMG! Adorable! The bikini briefs are so cute in a see-thru leopard lace with the contrasting color on the band around the waist and legs. BUT...enough with the aesthetics and onto the good stuff.
Although the DD is too small for me, I feel like it looks better on than the DDD. I'm def getting some quad boob, but everything else about this bra seems perfect. The wire width is just right, the strap placement is perfect, the lift and cleavage are great! I thought the T-shirt bra had a bit more padding, but it was a little less than what I was expecting. I also have the Body By Victoria Perfect Shape in a 32DDD and I feel like that has a tad more padding. But isn't nearly as soft as this bra. The other Perfect Shape from the Body collection is much firmer, but softer to the touch. The padding on this seems pretty similar to the padding in the Uplift Semi Demi. I also noticed a difference in the band. It seems rather stretchy in the T-shirt bra. And another thing I noticed that I thought was a major inconsistency was the difference in band length between the 32DD and DDD. You would think they'd be the same since they're both a 32....but, alas, they are not. Lol. Which makes no sense to me. A 32 is a 32 is a 32....regardless of cup size! The DDD measured a whole inch longer than the DD. Why is this Victoria's Secret? Another reason I lean towards the DD more frequently. I've noticed this with ALL of their bras! The gore seems to be pretty comfy in the DD but a bit bothersome in the DDD because of the wider cups, and they dig into my cleavage. The gore doesn't even come close to tacking on either.
Still, I think the T-shirt "Perfect Shape" bra gives a really nice, "perfect" shape. I love all the fun colors for this season!! I just wish there were more available for larger cup sizes in store instead of always having to buy online and pay extra for shipping.
UPDATE: So I decided to give this bra ONE LAST try...I just love the color on this and really don't wanna part with it. Lol. I loosened the straps a pretty good amount and voila! Perfectly comfortable, no quad boob and stayed in place ALL day AND night! And looked MUCH better under my shirt I'm def hanging onto it...in fact, I bought another in the Purple/Pink colorway
