This provides sports bra level support for me--wonderful. It has the following features: 1. Cushioned straps 2. 3x3 fasteners 3. Super soft cup and band lining 4. Invisible under thin knits 5. Wide straps 6. .75" elastic band for support
@klilly3 , you too, may appreciate this most comfortable wireless option. It has several of my most favorite design elements and provides support without a wire. The band is typical of Wacoal and runs an inch short. And, the straps are partially adjustable My straps are adjusted 75% of maximum. Low set/tall users may find the straps too short. But, we petite/high-set/short-waisted users can rejoice
This size pulls too tight under my arm and the band feels short on my 28" underbust. Projected breasts may need to size up in the cup. I'm off to find an inexpensive 34DDD...
Short waisted, center full, close set, immediately projected, omega-shaped breasts....
After a few hours, I'm aware of some compression. And, I found myself vigorously loosening the straps. Still it is very comfortable, but I need a bit more space. Adding a full extender has dramatically improved the fit.
Strangely, this cup design is shallow in the top which forces my breasts into the bottom and creates a flat plane across the top. Not only that, it pulls a bit too tightly across the top near the outer quadrant. However, adding a full extender dramatically lessened the compression and created a very comfortable, supportive bra.
34DDD has side support sandwiched between the outer layer fabric and inner fabric. This is super comfortable and helps keep breast tissue "front and center." The design is not ideal for center-full, close-set breasts, but workable if you can tolerate a slight east/west look. The fabrics and absence of seams makes this a great choice for those with sensory sensitivities.
I so want to love this bra. When my breasts expand, 34DDD becomes uncomfortably tight. So, 36DDD was a logical choice. But, with the scaling, the top of the cup under my arm tugs too tightly unless the straps and band are fully loosened. Considering I have a 28" underbust, this isn't a good solution for me. Sigh.
