Bottom of the cup is the best fit! And it's 1 of only 2 that have ever given me half decent cleavage. However... Not too supportive. The wires are WAY TOO forgiving. Whatever shape they have off the body seems completely gone after i put it on. The sides (wire strength? Length? Or wing height?) just completely collapses. I usually have a bit of a problem under there, but... Sheesh.
Has interior panels to hold push up pads. And while the fabric is exquisite, it's a little itchy (then again, i never wear lace).
So beautiful, im thinking of keeping it since ive been loosing weight (plus i have matching undies and stretchy lace teddy).
Black lace with off-white, embroidered flowers colorway
I remembered I loved this bra, but I forgot how MUCH I love this bra. I had a wonderful lilac on purple that was eaten by the same dog rubbing her head against my legs as I take pictures of this one. She was a nervous new puppy then, but I still don't leave any lacy things where she can get to them! This is the brand new color that just came in to my local store, a kind of mysterious blue/purple that shifts depending on the light. The detailing on this is great, from the bottom of the band to the wings all in lacy patterns. Its ...not surprising how this model sticks around! In this colorway the contract color is a silvery lurex. The fit is soft and light once you pull yourself into the stretchy stretchy cups and totally perfect for my evenly full breasts, although, yes, I probably should have done a 36. I know the 36DDD definitely does not fit, though, unlike the Wacoal Retro Chic Full Figure Underwire Bra (855186) and the Wacoal Spot On Underwire Bra (855185) the cups are too tight (having previously tried it). So I would have to try a G. Next color! Read more 101 more words
This bra is really beatiful and supportive. However, neither it is my size nor does the shape work for my breasts. I get a pointy shape that doesn't have much lift... Which is a shame as it is so pretty...
Bratabase will mark this as not fitting, but I would say that it does fit. The one issue that's causing the "did not fit" designation is that the very tiippy-top of the gore floats a tiny bit. I don't consider this a fit problem, because I'm really happy to finally have a gore that won't dig in, and it doesn't seem to be negatively affecting the fit of the cups or band.
Material: Lace. Not particularly itchy for lace, but...it feels like lace. I really like the color contrast.
Band: Might be on the firmer side of average. Comfortably snug on me. 3/4 inch spacing between ...hooks (if you're considering using an extender).
Wires: Somewhat flexible. Lots of space to move them in the wire channel.
Gore: Middle height. Doesn't poke in at my sternum.
Cups: Two- part construction with diagonal seam, unlined, side sling. Mesh under lace for the bottom of the cup; stretch lace only for the top.
Straps: A little wider-set than I'd like, but not unreasonably so. There is a tiny bit of edging that doesn't bother me but may bother those with sensitive skin. Fully adjustable. Read more 83 more words
I was really anxious to put this bra on, sadly it didn't went well, the shape is kind of pointy, the lace shows a lot, I am only going to be able to wear it with chunky sweaters, and the whole bra is very stretchy, from the straps to the band to the cups, all of it is stretchy, is a shame since the bra is absolutely beautiful, it didn't work for me, but I hope that maybe for someone else it does.
This is a really beautiful bra and very comfortable. It definitely doesn't fit though. I bought this after getting fitted at Nordstrom before I had really figured out my size. The fitter sized me at a 36F (UK). Since this bra only goes up to DDD and the 36 band ran really firm I sister sized to a 38DDD. The gore is no where near tacking which the fitter, though the fitter said it wasn't supposed to (which I seriously doubt). It gives me a somewhat conical shape and is pretty full coverage.
The fit is pretty good. Being an unlined/unpadded cup, I don't love the sillouette. It doesn't poke anywhere and is comfortable for long periods of time. I will probably add inserts to the cup to round out my shape in this bra.
