    Very short-waisted, center full, close set, immediately projected, shallow apex projection, full on bottom, and somewhat narrow breasts....

    Holy Snowball, Batman! I can painlessly run in this bra. You read that correctly. I just chased my young daughter around the house x 3 in this bra. Whoa. I can't believe it. Finally, I feel supported in a wired bra.

    After feeling painfully constricted in a 32G La Femme a month ago and admitting not even my wireless bras are comfortable now, I endeavoured to try La Femme again. The 32 band is no longer tight in this 32H. Just a reminder for myself: if a bra feels tight, wear ... it upside down and backward before assuming you need a larger band. ;-)

    I am supported, lifted, and tethered in this 32H. The gore is still 50% wider than I require. And, the wires look too wide. But, when the cups sit on the bra cradle where my breasts require, the wire is a near perfect fit. When I rotate one gore wire flat onto my chest, the cup fits beautifully. Otherwise, a .25" gore gap is present in each cup. When I began my journey, I would have assumed this cup was too large. It is not. The bra is simply designed for breasts further apart than mine. Again, center-full, close-sets breasts are a definite fit challenge.

    I prefer La Femme over Freya Deco for several reasons. If you'd like to read them, click here http://bra.pe/XWGS/

    Wacoal is one of my favorite bra manufacturers because of their material selection. This bra creates amazing round orbs under thin t-shirts. Not an ideal fit, but I may be able to alter enough to fit.

      Wow, I can't believe you found a wired bra that, at least for the moment, feels supportive and comfortable!

      I love it. I also loved your note to self regarding the band! While it made me laugh, I totally get what you are saying.
      Looks great under a top too! :)

      I just got a Wacoal Seduction Spacer and a La Femme on eBay from a great seller. The spacer is amazing. The La Femme is so close to being perfect, but not quite. I agree that Wacoal uses quality materials and for that reason they are my favorites. The La Femme looks wonderful on you. Congratulations!

      I've accumulated 5 La Femmes over the past year and they are consistently the bras I reach for every day. It's not a perfect fit but closer than anything else I have. Also cute and comfortable! My only issue is most of the new colors are not available in my size. It looks great on you.

    Very short-waisted, immediately projected, shallow apex projection, somewhat narrow breasts, center full, close set, sensitive skin....

    Here It is. The one and only wired bra I wear. Read my profile: you'll understand how special this bra is.

    It stayed in my IMF for 7 hours which included 2.5 hours of driving and two hours of volunteer work cleaning rescue animal cages. Literally, this is an unbelievable accomplishment for any bra in my wardrobe.

    And, the lift is...well...worth wearing a bra for. Sadly, hundreds of bras have provided virtually no benefit for my breasts. The wires were awfully painful and the shape repulsive. Often I found myself preferring my breasts without ... a bra, but I require a bra for two reasons. First, the weight often causes pain. So, the bra must provide some lift. Second, my prominent, sensitive nipples require shielding. Wacoal La Femme fulfills my two requirements, and is the one wired bra I will wear.

    This is a miraculous bra, for me. Thank you, Anya99 !! I'll adopt your other La Femme :-) :-)

    This La Femme is a bit narrower than my other. And, I really need a slightly wider wire. Swapping wires will reduce the apex projection in this cup which I really can't do: reduced apex projection will create need for an even wider wire.

    An amazing t-shirt bra for those who can wear it!

    This is a great tshirt bra. Very nice, smooth shape under anything. Lightly padded for modesty. Pretty tonal detail around the cups. I wish it fit me.
