My first impression of this bra was that it seemed shallow at the wire. When I put it on though I was impressed with how the cup material hugged my shape. It was too big in the top of the cup though, gaping everywhere, wanting more top and center fullness.
This is expected since Wacoal 32DDD doesn't always fit me. 32DD might be worth a try.
It seems so lacy but the materials are really thin and blend together seamlessly (rather than thick lace stitched onto thick mesh)
I took a change during the FigLeaves sale and I am so glad I did - I adore this bra. The cups are a perfect G and it's a gorgeous color - more green, please! The straps are on the shorter end, but I have low, large breasts. The band was surprisingly tight - It felt like it was EXACTLY my ribcage. (If you are really particular you may want to go up a size in band/down in cup, or make sure you can try it on or return without hassle. I expect the band will not be an issue.) It was slightly uncomfortable but something I know will stretch as the band has very tight, strong stretch. It's so supportive it acts like a lined, shaped cup. Everything about this bra is gorgeous. Below the lace everything is finely and subtly embroidered. Comfort is pretty great, but I think it will be better once I wear it more.
I tried this bra on a whim; it looked so pretty and a bit retro on the hanger so I had to try it.
Appearance wise, this bra is very pretty! It has lace accents along the top of the cup as well as on the bottom portion of the band. The remainder of the fabric has a pattern to it; it's not solid. All in all, very pretty bra. Under clothing, I get a nice natural profile. The vertical seam is visible under tighter tops.
I tend to run in between sizes so I tried on a 34DDD. It seemed to fit well in the store but as I ...wear it a bit I realize I should have sized up in the cup.
First thing to note - the band runs small. When I measured the stretched band for Bratabase, I could only get to 33" -- and I think I might have distorted the wires a bit. There are 3 hooks so the bra does feel very secure.
There is a small, clear bit of elastic that runs across the top edge of the cup. I have very firm tissue so this doesn't impact me but if you have soft breast tissue, I could see this bit of elastic cutting in even if the cup volume is correct.
The gore is very close and has a slight separation at the top. This upper split portion of the gore doesn't sit flat against my body; it is pushed outward -- not so much it shows through clothing. To be honest, I am not sure if is supposed to because of the design of the gore. When I push to gore down flat, I get quadding in the cup. I suspect I should've gotten a 34G instead. Still, the bra is wearable and I'd like to try it again in a cup size up. Read more 203 more words
