I was so sad when this beautiful bra didn't fit https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> it so soft, light weight, elegant and the color is wonderful ( I have the blue one) I liked it so much I wear it even knowing I have to pull all day long!! My wonderful husband bought it for me, so I couldn't try it on before purchasing it, I am pretty sure the 32 DDD would have fit just right!! It runs a bit on the smaller side. The back is sooooo comfortable!!
Update February 5 2017: I am not so sad anymore, since I started exercising 5 months ago ...I lost about 18 lbs. and maybe two cup sizes ( that is not good news) and this beautiful bra now fits almost perfectly https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> iam 43 years old and my Brest tissue has changed a lot, exercise has done wonderful things not only in my body, but in my life, but loosing Breast tissue in not something that I wanted, it just comes with the territory, most of my beautiful bras don't fit anymore, but this one does now. I still think it does run on the smaller side. Great quality bra. Read more 98 more words
First off, the band runs much too small for a 32. However, I love the construction of it: stretch microfiber on the inside; an outer layer of stretch satin, and a super thin layer of stretch padding sandwiched in the middle, which gives the band nice support and 'body'; the edges are bonded/fused together without any elastic. All together it feels very nice against your skin. So it was disappointing it was so short. The cups are also nice quality fabric and feel like it would be comfortable to wear, but unfortunately for me ran much too shallow and wide. It felt like I was being squished into it and at the same time the wires were being pushed down.
Sizing up did not remedy the center shallowness problem. This bra pushed out of my IMF almost instantly, had unfilled cup space in the top, and quadding near the gore. The Black band is tighter than the Cayenne band.
The cups are deep at the apex. So, this bra would fit those with less immediate projection needs and more apex projection.
SO soft. Let me type that again. Incredibly soft. Wow. Low gore. Wide, supportive band: the most comfortable I've ever experienced. Limited stretch straps. 3x3 fasteners.... If you've read my other reviews, you know I'm in love.
The lining is thin, but sufficient for nipple armour and nipple coverage. The band is supportive and nearly unnoticeable while wearing. The gore is low enough that the most-often-tethered-portions of my breast are wire-free and pain-free. We all deserve pain-free bras!!
The gore is too wide at the base, but this design allows an easy alteration. However, before I add stitches to the gore, I will purchase a 36DDD. Through much trial and ...error, I know a bra must look a bit large before I narrow a gore. Otherwise, when all my breast can settle in the cup, what once "fit" is suddenly, uncomfortably small.
The lift is unremarkable and this bra is best suited for the shallow-average community with less close-set, less center-full breasts than I have. However, this is very comfortable, very minimalistic, and provides a round shape under thin knits. I'll take two https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" />
Extra soft microfiber. Not good for the environment, but it feels fantastic on my skin. The band does not cause any rolls. The bra is advertised to reduced back rolls. Judging from Amazon reviews, the band works wonderfully for those who often experience back rolls. Because the fabric tension is very similar to the band elastic tension, the band is intensely comfortable. What was designed to reduce back rolls has also increased the wearer's comfort. Wonderful.
Predictably, this bra is not a good fit for those with center fullness or those needing immediate projection. However, I will strongly recommend it for those with more shallow breasts. It seems ...an effortless fit for the right breasts. Intensely comfortable and just enough thin foam padding to expertly shroud prominent nipples. The fabric will appeal to those with sensory issues. It is soft!
The straps are fully adjustable, soft, and supportive. The wires are padded more than Panache/Cleo. The gore is short and narrow. Compared to Panache plunges I've tried in the past, this bra feels like my softest blanket whereas Panache feels like stiff curtain sheers. I prefer soft and supportive to stiff.
Bratabase needed some data and I'm fond of Wacoal. Another wonderful Wacoal bra. Read more 95 more words
This is smooth and comfortable for a while, though my left boob (which is bigger) tends to ever-so-slightly pop out at the top. It's not enough that it's a problem, though. The straps are placed nicely and don't fall off, and are fully adjustable, which is nice for women with slender shoulders. I always have problems with my straps falling off, but not with this bra. My only issue is that the center gore part digs into my skin after a while and leaves red, irritated marks after I've worn it for a day. I don't really like the shape this gives me. It pushes my breasts farther off to the sides than I prefer.
