I've been dying to get myself a front-closure, racerback push-up bra for summer. And what better time than during Victoria's Secret Semi-Annual Sale https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> I wasn't sure how I would do with a 32DD since I normally wear a DDD in VS. But the last 2 Very Sexy bras I bought (one of them being a front-closure) seemed too wide in the cup for my girls and I wasn't getting that extreme cleavage I was after.
So I really wanted to try the DD. And....It fits like a glove!!! I was very surprised! It may be just a teensy tiny bit too ... shallow, by like a hair! But it's barely noticeable. I thought for sure I would be quadboobing or falling out. But it lays just right, no cutting in (unless I really scoop n swoop). What I really like, the most, is the tightness of the band. It's perfect for my 27" ribcage. The wire width is perfect and the cups don't feel gigantic like they do in the DDD.
I love this bra! Perfect summer!! I love the strappy back and the pretty butterfly colorway!! I even got the matching thongs (so adorable)!! I def recommend this bra! It's so comfy, supportive and super sexy! A combination I can only seem to get with VS!

This lacy wireless VS bra isn't as good of a fit as my others. The band is looser and it feels unsupportive in general. The cups are wider set and tall near the armpits compared to my others. Sucks because the lace is cute!
Note: Bra is wireless but Bratabase wanted me to enter wire length measurement since it is "Unknown Model." I just measured along the moulded cup edge.

Fit great until I grew out of them. Super nice and not excessively used.

This bra is super comfortable and in like-new condition! It's cute but sexy at the same time. It's very cute with open-back tops that would show the sexy black straps on the back. I am selling this (and other bras) because I work at Victoria's Secret and own way too many bras!

This bra is sexy, but gives me clown boobs.
I'm keeping it as a bedroom set, but I'm not too keen on wearing it out.
I did one time, and my boobs looked super ridiculous for my frame.
Shame, as the strappy back could make for a great addition to an outfit.
The cups run wide, shallow due to pushup padding (thick), and far apart. Not a good match for me, but still a gorgeous bra.
FYI on the band: I couldn't add that it was 15" unstretched, but it is. This bra was extremely difficult to measure, being a front-close bra. It stretches enough to fit a 29-30' ribcage, if not 32', but I couldn't get it to stretch any further for the measurement. I'm all sorts of confused.

This is the most comfortable bra in Victoria's Secret. Looks good under shirts and you can wear it all day long without a problem.

I try to avoid Victoria's Secret now that I know better, but I needed a strapless bra for an event, and a trip to two different Nordstrom's failed to turn up anything that worked for me. I have shallow breasts with a wide root and it seems strapless bras are just not made for the way I'm shaped. Most of them try to enclose too much tissue on the top and the top edge of the cup cuts into my chest and creates a quad-boob, even when there's unfilled space in the cup. I observed that problem with the Freya Deco Shape Moulded Strapless Longline Bra ... (1462) , the Wacoal Red Carpet Convertible (854119) , and the Chantelle Sublime Invisible Strapless Bra (3954) . I also tried on every strapless bra at Victoria's Secret, and this was the only one that even came close to being open enough on the top.
The smallest band available for this bra is 32, so that's what I went with, even though I really need a 30. Even for the first wearing, I had to put it on the tightest hook to keep it from moving around. There's a lot of padding in the cups, which makes them smaller than they "should" be. I also would have gone up a cup size, but DD was the largest that they made, so I went with it because it was still the best fit I'd found.
Anyone trying on this bra might be tempted to go with a smaller cup size to get more of a pushup effect and more cleavage, but I would caution against that. My too-small cups started out ok, but as the evening wore on, the cups were overpowered by my boobs and buckled in the center, causing the top 50% of the cup to spill outward, and I don't even have heavy boobs. Fortunately, my dress had ruching across the top, so nobody could see my weirdly folded bra. I think if I put the straps on this, that would help hold the top of the cup up and keep that from happening, but if I were wearing something where I could wear a bra with straps, I wouldn't be wearing this bra.
As for appearance, this is a fairly attractive bra for a strapless. They put some little pleats on the cups where they meet the center gore, which makes them a little less plain than your standard featureless strapless, but they don't extend out far enough to cause lumps under clothing.
