  1. First of all, this bra is listed as being Forest Green with Gold lace. The actual colors are Teal with Ecru lace. It's a very pretty color combination.
    The cups are a very soft tricot on the inside, and just a very thin layer of traditional foam padding throughout. The stretch satin on the outside feels like it could snag easily on jewelry if you're not careful. The contour cups give a nice rounded profile. Very comfortable! The band is Very snug, and has not loosened up with several months of wear. The straps have a flocking on the underneath side, but the edges felt a little ... rough at first. Not exactly scratchy, but enough to notice when putting it on. That has softened with washing. The placement of the front straps are closer inline with the apex of the cups, which I suspect helps minimize gaping, if you're prone to that. The straps in the back are attached ballet-style, so even someone with narrow shoulders shouldn't have a problem with them slipping. Even though the gore is 1" wide, it is low enough not to interfere with close-set breasts, and yet still high enough to give nice support and the cups have a decent amount of center projection. The wings of the bra are tall enough to prevent side spillage, along with the cups being fairly wide. So not really an issue with underarm tissue not getting into the cups.

    This particular bra was made in Thailand.

    For reference, I am 5'1" tall, average weight, functionally FoB, short but average-width rooted and projected, and I have since purchased several of these in different colors. Only the red one was smaller in the band. The others have all been very consistent.

  2. Comfortable but moulded cup so can be a gap above the breast.

    I've purchased several of Wacoal's Lace Affair in various colors and was excited when I saw this Light Blue color (which I hadn't seen available in the US). It's a beautiful shade of blue...darker than "Baby Blue" but lighter than "Cornflower".
    I have consistently been very happy with the height & width of the gore of the Lace Affair style. Its' shape fits my shape exactly.
    When I've gone up a cupsize for those times of fluctuations I have found the cups/wires (and consequently the straps) get wider rather than the cups getting deeper, proportion wise. So in that sense it's not an ideal bra, since I need more projection rather than width.
    Overall, their quality is spot on and their sizing is usually very consistent (with the exception of the Red, which the band was so short I needed an extender).

  4. I have purchased several of these bras in various colors, and I find there are slight variations between them (but not enough to change sizes). So far the "Tango Red" colorway has had the shortest band (so I'm using an extender on that one until the elastic relaxes).
    On this particular "Blue Sapphire/Sphinx" the cups quad in the center ever so slightly; but because of the stretch cups it's not uncomfortable. The gore sits securely against my sternum and the top of it sits perfectly just below my center fullness. I have tried the 32G (in another color) to fix the quadding issue, but they only made the wire wider and not the cup deeper, which is what I really need.
    Overall, this style is a very comfortable bra and on most days is my go-to bra of choice.

    Fits very similarly to La Femme.
    *Straps are .75" wide, supportive, and fully adjustable
    *Microfiber cups material causes all fabrics to glide over
    *Gore remains too wide for my CSCF breasts
    *Despite a 4"wing height, the wing is very comfortable
    *Band is less stretchy than La Femme
    * Lace along band could be irritating to those with sensitivities
    *Lift and centering are excellent
    *Gorgeous round shape under thin knits.

    Despite these wonderful qualities, I prefer the padded wires of Wacoal Awareness and Bodysuede.

    • Is it more like La Femme than Embrace Lace? Looks similar to Embrace Lace but probably different materials.

    • annabellynn It is nearly identical in dimension to La Femme, but the Lace Affair cup fabric is a softer microfiber. And, the band as well as straps are less stretchy.
