I'm a newbie in this Holy Graal quest so please apologize if I forget some details.
First, I have to say I had trouble with measurement so I didn't choose the right size I'm afraid. I choose a 28 O but I would need at least 2 cups size more. I guess there is also a problem with the demi cut which seems to run smaller than plunge style at Wellfitting.
However I would definitively recommend that bra to a friend because :
- the wires are SO narrow, it's like heaven : no wire dig into armpit. - the satin is so cute - straps are fully adjustable : very useful ...to me, I'm tall and so I need to have long straps -the huge size range : no matter how uncommon your size is, you will find it
The only thing concerning is the price but personally, I consider the bra worths the cost.
Concerning Wellfitting, do not hesitate to order. The customer service is perfect, Julia and Amelia are so cute and helpful.
EDIT : I have just altered this bra myself. I sewed a "narrower gore" and guess what ? ALLELUIA ! It fits almost PERFECTLY ! I presume that alteration gives more bottom projection and such a narrow gore ! Oh God it's a relief. If you are VERY close set with small back and giant boobs => order a polish bra and ask for a narrower gore. That will be my request for all my future order. Read more 139 more words
After seeing Zoe from Weirdly Shaped and Well Photographed in this bra (and the longlines), I just KNEW I had to try it. I have quite a few fitting challenges and in combination with my size, I just don't have many options out there. I wasn't sure a demi cut would work for me but everything is worth a try since I am so limited.
I have one previous experience with Wellfitting long ago when they first came around. I had actually purchased a bra from them through Amazon back then! I wanted to be sure to get the sizing right on this one so I emailed them some ...photos of me in my other Comexim bras, asked their thoughts on size, and asked if I could get the bra with alterations. I quickly had a response that suggested I keep with my usual Comexim size like in the photos (65M) and that they could lower the gore for me but could not reduce the cup as it is essentially already reduced. She was even kind enough to send a photo showing a demi cut sitting over one of the plunge cuts to show the height difference. I ordered the bra and a day or two later I had another email asking when I had purchased my Comexims from my photos, just to be sure they got the sizing right. Shortly after that, I had another response that said they had conferred with the bra designers and decided to make me a 65M with a lowered gore and a deeper cut at the armpits because in my original email I mentioned I have a serious problem with bras rubbing me raw there. I was SO ecstatic and really appreciated their customer service! I thought they were going pretty above and beyond! Two weeks later I had another email that the bra had shipped.
I waited a full month after it had shipped before I contacted them to let them know it hadn't arrived. I am cursed to have every package sit for weeks in customs it seems so I just figured thats where this one was too. I let them know that I understand theres nothing they can do but that i wanted to let them know just in case. They responded back almost immediately saying how sorry they were, that every package they shipped out that day went missing, and that they hadnt been aware mine was involved as well. They said they would make me another one and get it shipped out to me again but that it would still take the 2 weeks production time again. I said okay and went ahead and added another bra on to my order (Abracadabra LL) because it didnt make sense to have them ship separately.
About a week later, I got a USPS tracking update text. I was very confused as I knew I had nothing on the way and certainly hadn't signed up for any text alerts recently. Well I should have known! 5 weeks later this bra was finally scanned into the US through Flushing, NY! I was pretty much in shock. I definitely didn't think this one was going to ever appear! But this time USPS really did me a solid and got it right to me after that! 2 days from NY to Cali! Last time this happened, that same trip took like 2 weeks! When I finally got this package, it looked like it was in perfect condition too! Usually they are SO beat up when customs and USPS takes my things hostage haha.
I had to have a stare down with the bra for awhile. Challenge it not to fit me after all this time I thought it wasn't going to work for me. It has 3 vertical panels and the side panels are HUGE. I tried an EM PL Wrozs before with a similarly sized panel over by the sideboob area and I just don't have enough boob over there for that construction. But when I finally put it on, HEAVEN! It hugs my boobies beautifully, although a bit too tight! I always get some boobie bubbling over the top of my bras but without quadding. I am okay with that. This one has a lot of bubble and a bit of quadding too! But it isn't enough that I can't keep it! I am in love with this style! Wellfitting said it was good for FOB boobies. I don't know much about the shapes of boobs, but I am sure I would call myself full all over haha. This is the first time I've really been able to sit all the way down into the bottom though! I love how open it is down there! But my fullness doesn't end there so it cuts into my tissue more than I'd like up top. I think I have been needing to size up for awhile and just haven't wanted to face the music yet! Too bad I have quite a few things on order right now o.O The deeper cut at the arm is perfect! I don't feel a thing! That NEVER happens! But the gore measures 3" and my lowered gores have very consistently been 2.75" in this size. I am bummed about it as it does sit on my tissue just a touch. But because its small it floats a bit and it doesn't cause me any pain. The wires were pretty perfect besides at the gore. The uplift, shape, and cleavage is beautiful! And it gives me just the perfect little separation between them so I don't have to have baby butt cleavage (not going to lie, I usually DO want baby butt cleavage though lol). My boobs had a perky and super rounded shape in a semi loose tshirt. I didn't try a tight t but I hope the bit of quad doesn't show! The only con is that the straps are too wide for me. I should have asked for them to be moved in but they aren't unbearable by any means.
Here is the real negative and quite a big one in my opinion. The work is VERY sloppy! The inside is black lining. However there are tons of areas where the fabric from the cups is more than peeking through. Like it didn't all get cut off all the way in multiple areas. It is pulling and shredding all over and looks very sloppy. None of my other bras have ever come out like this so I was really surprised. I also notice that the fabric on the cups bunches, wrinkles, and folds up a lot. I don't know if its because it is the satiny material or if it is because they did the special deeper cut at the armpit. Overall, I love the fit of the bra and think it is beautiful but I am very disappointed in its quality. Read more 1049 more words
Oh my god. This thing is TINY! 30M - not so much. I run about a 30HH-JJ in Freya/Panache/Cleo and my poor boobs were completely overflowing. So please take into account that for someone whose proper size this is, the bra may well fit beautifully, it just clearly is NOT mine!
The upside is that it's gorgeous - silky black cups with a petite, multi-colored flower print that's beautiful. The cups are exactly the shape I need - a solid, supportive half cup. The line down the middle shows a little bit under thin clothing.
The band is relatively firm, I closed it on the 2nd of 4 ...clasps, but the underwire is miserable. Sank deep into skin on the sides and most of the front. Painful, red marks. Not the norm for me.
Straps are wide-set for my very narrow shoulders. Gogobee warned me that the customer service on her custom order was shaky enough that she wasn't sure if the straps were narrowed, and I will confirm that they are not.
I'm posting pics, but in all fairness, they're not representative of my size when I received the bra. I've now increased 1-2 cups and about 1 back size for an average of 32HH-J (hormones).
I'm disappointed, because it's a beautiful bra, rare to find such a gorgeous, lightly padded half-cup near my size, but realistically I'd say this fit more like a 30GG-H, or even a 28H-HH since the band is quite firm.
I'll be putting this up for resale soon on bratabase, so PM me if you're interested. Read more 156 more words
Look: I love it. It's a beautiful bra without being too girly or embellished. I personally prefer richer/more saturated colors over pastels, so this is right up my alley. The seams on this bra are very noticable under a shirt, but this is may be due to the cup being too small causing the seams to be pushed out right at my apex and thus positioned in a very prominent area.
Fit: I am waiting on a larger size to arrive (just shipped yesterday) , so I am not sure on the final fit for this bra. There is also an issue with the quality (mentioned later) which prevents me from ...being to sure on the fit of the cups. It is maybe a cup or 2 too small on my larger breast, but I'm new to all of this so I am not sure. The band is is significantly firmer than the basic in beige, which might be due to the black dye(?). I measure 24.5 snug and this is decent or bordering on too big. It feels nice and light. I love the stretch in the band and straps; it makes it feel like you're wearing the bra and not vice versa.
Quality: I wonder if the bravantgarde is just somewhat poor in quality because like gogobee I had some issues. If I measure along the top of the cup from the strap to the gore, there is a difference of about 1/2 an inch between the two cups (big difference for me!). I noticed this because the larger cup is on my smaller breast/side causing it to gape more than it should - or maybe it shouldn't gape at all. It was the wrong size and I had already ordered a larger size anyways, so I am contemplating whether I should notify them/complain.
Just some side notes: The material almost sounded like it made a rustling sound. I don't think you would hear it when you move and definitely not underclothing, but I jus thought that was interesting.
I can have super sensitive skin to the point where bob-length hair makes my neck red and itchy. The inside material does not seem like it would irritate my skin nor does it appear as if there are any pointy or unfinished areas that could cause harm.
Thanks for reading! I hope my reviews aren't averaging on too long. 😘 Read more 286 more words
