The Great Amazon Prime Wardrobe Try-On, Pt 2! My shape: FOB, narrow roots/shoulders, soft tissue, 32G (though I'm thinking maybe more 30G since a lot of these 32 bands are too stretchy for me!) Fit: Ok, when they say "Retro Chic," they certainly mean it. Though this bra fits me technically, it's not my ideal shape at ALL. It's VERY POINTY! If that's the shape you are going for, this works perfectly and fits true to size. This would work really well if you are trying to get a 50's style, or wearing a 50's costume or something. The cups and gore are very tall. Appearance: My first thought when trying this ...one was, "Oh man, this is a granny bra." (No offense to any grandmas on here!) It kind of is, but I feel that way about beige bras in particular. (They are a necessary evil as far as I'm concerned; if I didn't need one badly to wear under white shirts, I wouldn't own one at all!) It's sort of plain, with beige lace all over the cups. There's a tiny bow with a gem at the gore. Overall: This is really comfortable, but I definitely wouldn't wear it out unless in a poodle skirt costume or something. Read more 99 more words
If you have a lot of migrated tissue, this bra definitely isn't for you as it allows for very little movement. The band isn't very stretchy at all - it would fit fine one day and be too small the next. Not sure how it compares to other I cups in their line seeing as this was the only one they had in stock. As far as the design goes, it's actually a very pretty bra, but it just wasn't a good fit for me. I think this bra would work better for someone with narrow roots and not as full on bottom.
I tried this bra on again, 7 months since the last time (and since my measurements have changed slightly). The fit was pretty amazing! And I almost bought it. Great support and great fit. However, the horizontal seams really show through under tees and knits -- even under a tee AND a thin sweater. Since that's pretty much all I wear, and I really didn't like the horizontal seams showing through, I passed on it. The shape is also a little more torpedo-y than I like.
This is a good supportive bra with wider side goring so you don't get as much "back fat" spilling over. Does a good job of supporting my boobs and making them look perkier than they are. Points boobs up and forward but not as much up and forward as a Freya plunge bra. But if you have really full breasts the tops of the cups are going to dig into your boobs. My breasts are a little less firm and less full than they used to be (I'm 48) so this bra fits. Would have given my younger boobs a quadraboob. Also I've worn it twice and the band is really stretching out. Makes me think I should have gotten a 32DDD instead of 34DD. Would give it an 8 out of 10 for comfort. Back strap seems a little itchy after wearing for a few hours. Cups very comfortable.
When I first tried this on I didn't like the retro shape it gave my boobs, very triangular and pin-up. They are also much further apart than I'm used to when wearing this. But then I tried it under a t shirt and they looked great! Plus it was on sale and I needed bras that fit so I took it home. After wearing for long work days I can say that the band feels tight and the boning on the side gets really uncomfortable when sitting for long periods. The gore in the center goes really high, like almost above my breast tissue so ...it is not good for even high v necks or anything lower than your neckline. I just got a band extender and that made it WAY more comfy so maybe I should have tried a bigger band. Also I'm not sure if this is from the lace, or all the new bras I've been wearing and I have sensitive skin anyways but I have been breaking out in rashes since wearing it. I think it's because I'm used to wearing t shirt bras that are smooth, and after being stuffed into the lace all day my skin gets irritated. Overall it's an ok bra if you like the retro shape and wear high necklines. Read more 119 more words
Wonderful bra that fits well and gives a great shape under clothes. It's very comfortable and is perfect for everyday; however, the cups and sides come up quite far, which eliminates this bra as a candidate for summer wear. Also, as a 30 FF who's forced to wear 32DDD bras in American brands, the band could be a bit tighter. I was able to wear it comfortably on the second hook initially. One size down would've been perfect.
Otherwise, great value for a classically beautiful and comfortable bra.
I purchased this in a bra shop, it felt ok for the 5 minutes I had it on but after getting home and wearing this a bit the straps had to be replaced as they were too short and I had to use an expander. In hind sight this may have been ok in a 36.
