The Couture Contour is a pretty comfortable bra, made of smooth, soft material. The embroidered detail at the top of the cups gives the bra a nice flourish in what otherwise would be a very utilitarian bra. I also consider it a bonus that it is not scratchy. Some Wacoals I've encountered in the past were all up on my boobs with the scratchy lace and whatnot. I am on the fence about the fit of this bra. On the one hand, when I scoop and swoop, I get slight quadboob at top. However, the breast tissue seems to settle down after a while, giving the bra a better ...appearance. Does this mean I need to scoop and swoop more or can I let the boobs settle where they choose? I'm going to have to wear this model more often, and give it some thought. The straps are comfortable, although I noticed that the range in which you can tighten them is very short. While I was able to adjust them to a comfortable length, this could be an issue, maybe if you have a short torso? There is no gapping when I lean over, and I can fill out the bottom of the cups. The 32 band is what I would call a tight 32 - compared to some other 32 bands I've tried. I measure about a 31 at a snug fit, and 30 if I pull REALLY tight like I'm going to break the tape. I found the last hooks to be most comfortable -which is how a 32 should be, but because of my in-between size I find myself in either 30 bands, or 32 bands using the middle or even first set of hooks. I gave this bra what I call the exercise test --in which I go through my normal routine of weighted squats and other leg and butt exercises-- and it passed with flying colors. Granted, my routine doesn't include things like jogging (for that I guess I would need to bite the bullet and get a decent sports bra) but the bra didn't shift out of place or pinch, and my breasts didn't try to escape. Overall this seems like a good bra. I'm going to give it some more time before I decide if I need to change cup size, or if I can live with slight, periodic quadboob. When I put on a t-shirt and moved around some, you couldn't really see it, so.
[ETA]: Oh dear no, this doesn't fit each due to tissue migration or I was off to begin with. Such a shame because I love the feel of the fabric. Oh well Read more 338 more words
So comfortable, pretty, and smooth under tops. Straps can tend to slide with a day of wear since they don't go quite short enough. Band also stretches with wear. Not the most supportive. Very, very comfortable. Wish I hadn't outgrown the cups, I loved having this in rotation.
Very soft and comfortable bra. Perfect amount of padding.
It does make my breasts look far apart, though, and the amount of coverage it gives means it might not work well with shirts with lower necklines. I think it's great for when I just want to be comfortable and not think about my bra.
Got this before measuring myself accurately (30F UK). Got measured at VS, so that explains why it doesn't fit right. It still looks good under clothing and I didn't realize how a bra should fit until after I had worn and washed it a few times. I'm comfortable in it, but will probably get rid of it once I get a bra that fits right.
This gave me the weirdest boob effect yet. I filled the bottom just fine, but then the top decorative part cut in and pushed my boobs into a weird direction downward and out. It's not quite a full quad boob effect per se. It's hard to explain and none of the pictures I took actually show what I'm talking about. :\
I'm guessing the bra does what it is supposed to do. It looks lovely in the pictures on other ladies in bratabase. I guess it just doesn't work for me for some reason. And I don't think a larger cup would help because then I wouldn't fill the bottom and playing with the straps didn't do much either.
I meant to buy this bra in a 34B. In that size, it was snug without being too tight. The straps were gentle and did not slip. This bra is a 32C. I'm selling it because the store I originally bought it from won't let me return it.
