    A bralette that fits a 32G UK! Sort of!

    I needed a bralette that would be partially visible under a certain shirt. This was the perfect look, but to get enough cup coverage, I had to sister-size up to a 38 band and wear it on the tightest hooks. (The 36 was wearable but showed a little more skin than I wanted. I think the cup-to-band ratio is close to a DDD/E.) I also have to engage the J-hook to feel entirely secure, but it would probably be fine without it.

    So, yes, this is 2-3 sister sizes off and about a cup size smaller than I'd like...but it's ... also a bralette that is pretty and supportive and comfortable in my range! I'm calling it a win.

    EDIT: After wearing this a few times, I definitely get quadboob as the day progresses, and if I don't wear the J-hook, it's spill city. I still like it, but I hesitate to recommend it to anyone above a 32F UK, and a 34DD/E would probably be safer. However, if you're an FF/G and feeling lucky, give it a whirl.

    • I tried the 32. Should have done what you did. Glad it works for you :-) :-)

      Luckily, I was in Nordstrom, so I could try on whatever I needed. I forget which sizes I actually tried on, but yeah, that brick and mortar advantage!

    32

    Didn't fit

    I bought this bra in hopes of finding a cute and comfy bra to sleep in. It's a gorgeous bra and I've had really good luck with Wacoal bras in the past. Sadly, this was a complete miss. The bra is sized by the band only (30, 32, 34, 36, etc) so not knowing which cup size range it would fit was a bit of a gamble. Amazon reviews said it ran small, so I bought the 32 (I regularly wear 28F/30E). The band fit well, but the cups were waaaaaay too small. It's a shame because this bra really does have a lot going for it.

      Like you, I first purchased the 32. Oops. This 38 fit me better, but the band was too long.

    • I thought about reordering in a larger size and altering it, but it seems like more effort than it’s worth.

      Giggle. I know what you mean. Sadly, I resorted to creating my own because it was cheaper to upcycle soft t-shirts than pay $40 for a custom model that still didn't fit. And, I am very much an unskilled seamstress. Cringe. My first two, self-made bralette were too small In the cup, too. Sigh. Better luck to you :-)

    • Good job sewing your own! That would be beyond my abilities.

      If you were to see them, you'd instantly recognize they are "beyond my abilities," too. :-) Naturally, I tried to match a complex pattern on my first attempt: don't do that ;-) ;-)

    This bralette is good for short-waisted/high-set bodies. The wings are low and don't bite my lymph nodes: for this, I'm intensely grateful. It seems a tall underwired literally bruised my milk ducts recently. This is unpleasant. Harrah for short wings. However, the straps are fully adjustable, and I have them adjusted to 75% as short as can be adjusted. So, low-set/tall bodies may appreciate these features. If you need, tall wings to hold your tissue, this bralette will be a source of frustration and/or a complete disappointment. Sigh.

    Compared to Halo, this bra is not as soft. New, the lace is a bit scratchy. Knowing what I do about ... mass produced lingerie, I anticipate it will soften after a few washes. For comfort, I prefer Halo. However, for support, this microfiber-wrapped band provides significantly more support than Halo's stretch lace band. Halo, somehow, provides slightly better support for center fullness. However, neither of these bras are good choices for center-full breasts. We all will reverse swoop and scoop to fit; viable, but not ideal.

    The profile is natural and rounded. And, the texture is acceptable to me under a thin dark knit. Again, there is no nipple armor to protect me from branches and thorns in the garden. But, I desperately need COOL wireless options for our blistering summer heat.

    34

    Fits

    This is a lovely, lightly supportive bra. It is very comfortable. The only con might be that the cups are triangular and the pattern on them comes up to a point over the top of the shoulder- meaning that it can be seen with a lot of sleeveless or wide - neck shirts. This bra is so pretty that this really doesn't bother me, but it's not appropriate for all situations. I usually fit a 30 G or 32 DDD, but this bra only measures by band length, and somehow a 34 works.
