    Excellent immediate projection!! Surprise!! :-) :-)

    This is an incredibly lightweight bra with shaping power. If you can tolerate a 1.1" wide gore and need "better than most" immediate projection, Halo Lace is a great option. Although the cup edge is closed, the lace is stretchy and accommodates size and shape variation. In summer, this would be a dramatic relief to my other, less-ventilated bras.

    The flat lace is invisible under thin knits. The shape is rounded and lifted. The straps are peached, soft, and supportive.

    Although this band stretched to just over 32", the immediate projection was so good, that the band was significantly long. If I try this again, I'll purchase a 32g. But, this gore width is a definite deterrent.

    Not a good choice for close-set, center-full breasts unless you are comfortable with alterations. Otherwise, a fantastic lightweight, readily available bra with excellent immediate projection.

      oh yes I've tried this and it was sooo comfortable! FYI in a 32F or G (can't remember), I did not find the gore crazy wide... it was so high that it ended above the part where my boobs sit close together in a bra anyway, but you might find the problem goes away in that size.

    • Thanks for sharing :-) I just found an inexpensive 32G on Ebay.

    • It does like it has great 'shaping power' for a lace bra. nice find

      Wilderness1 it does and good quality nonstretch lace is actually more robust than regular fabric. I didn't buy one as I found it very minimizing and I wasn't looking for that, but it's definitely a firm-shaping type of cup!

    • 1

      Wilderness1 It feels so flimsy, but effortlessly lifts and rounds. I recommend trying it just to experience the fabric. Of all the bras I've tried, this is the lightest and most impressive fabric.

      Love4Pollinators wow, that says a lot! Looks great!

      Fantastic! You have a lovely shape for this bra. It looks comfortable and lightweight for hot weather.

    Sigh. I thought I could love this in purple and brave the alterations necessary to make the bra comfortable at the gore and underarm. But, after wearing a flex wire bra for four hours and suffering for two days afterward, I give up. I may have a rib out of place. And, the underarm wire rubs it in the most painful way. So, until I visit a physical therapist to move the rib (#3 I think), I'll garden in my wireless Organic Cotton Kindred Bravely. The organic cotton does absorb perspiration very well, but the synthetic, lightweight Halo Lace dries rapidly. Sigh. Can't have it all....yet ;-) Meanwhile, here is more data for Bratabase.

    This is an amazing, lightweight bra for those who can tolerate wires.

    • Too bad it didn't work for you, that colour is really pretty.

      In natural light, it is a deeper color with more blue. Nonetheless, it is a gorgeous color for those of who like purples ;-)

      I love this bra too. Looks really fetching on you, with and without the shirt.

    • Giggle. In my bras, I rarely feel "fetching." Thanks, Demitasse ;-)

    • Fetching is a function of the eyes of the beholder.

    For details, http://www.bratabase.com/bra/dinel/

    The gore is too wide at the top, but will alter easily. The non-fill in the bottom of the cup will disappear after narrowing the gore. And, the quadding along the top may be remedied, too.

    This is the most comfortable, lightweight bra I've encountered. And, I'm determined to make it work ;-)

  6. The color makes me happy, it so pretty, it is a wonderful tone of orange, more like coral. I am a little disappointed, I was so happy when I got this bra, but to tell you the truth the support is not good, it is very stretchy, (I guess that is why I could get away a DD cup) i need a more supportive bra, I do not know if maybe it could be because it is a DD cup, and usually I am DDD, but it fits great, no cuad boob. The straps are ok, they adjust all the way and it has a hook to make it racer back wich is very nice. It is very comfortable.

    I don't generally buy unlined bras because of the prominent nipple problem. However, this bra just might have swayed my opinion. I have a pretty projected shape and molded cups are often problematic because they squish my boobs down in unflattering ways. This one fits in all the right places-- the wire sits at the root and it gives nice lift and shape. Appearance only gets a "Good" just because of the aforementioned nipple issue, but this is only an issue with thin tees-- I'll have to find some pasties to deal with it!

    Note: the band is initially tight-- it took a couple of weeks before it stopped chafing uncomfortably. I had to fasten it on the very last hooks/ use a band extender. But now that it's stretched, it's a perfect fit all around!

    It's very comfortable, and I like the lace, but there's definitely more coverage going on here than I like. It feels a bit like a semi-stylish mom bra.

    This is a replacement for Wacoal Halo Lace 65149. I never had the former model so not entirely sure of difference other than that this one has clips to allow for wearing it as a racer back.

    The cups are unlined, stretchy, and soft, so would be great for asymmetry or hard to fit breasts; the cups conform to you rather than other way around. I had breast reconstruction 9 weeks ago and it is perfect as I heal through that as my breasts are still changing. The lace is flat, so is quite seamless under clothing. The band feels nice and snug. This will be a great ... daily/comfort wear bra for me (I bought it in both Cappucino and Toast) though as it is rather full coverage it won't work under certain necklines. It's not sexy, but I think it is is a little more attractive than a lot of seamless bras.

    It would be a great bra in hotter climates too as it so light and unpadded.

    Oh and as I said, you can convert it to racer back.
