This bra is extremely comfortable. It's a fairly tight 32 band, which means that I, with my size 30 back, can wear it with proper support on the tightest hooks. The cups seem to be true to size.
It contains no underwire, and instead employs patented plastic "hands" that lift and hold the breasts. The band sits on the mid to upper ribs, a great deal lower than that of a more conventional bra, and is lined with silicone that keeps the bra from slipping. There is no center gore in the traditional sense, and what it does have does not sit on the sternum, but it's not meant ...to. It is a highly effective, highly nonstandard fit. It is also shockingly comfortable once you get used to it, more so than some of the wired bras that I have bought and tried.
The cups provide support chiefly at the sides. There is no coverage on the inner sides of the breasts. While I'm sure that this design allows the bra to work well for plunging necklines, I don't wear many of those.
The bra offers a shape that I have not experienced before. The overall effect is amplifying, pushing the breasts a bit together and projecting them outward. This design gives great cleavage, but compared to the 9341, it's a great deal more compact and less dramatic. Though I think it actually predates the Wonderbra Ultimate Strapless Bra (9341), this design and cut is much better for me. The cups are lower cut, especially in the armpit, and make the bra more wearable on a smaller frame like my own. It also doesn't amplify my assets so much that I gain a dress size. Though this does mean that the cleavage provided is slightly less intense, I'm fine with trading that for this more comfortable, wearable alternative.
This is a good bra, and a great strapless. It does the job I want it to do, it is comfortable, and I do not need to adjust it. Read more 227 more words
This bra is witchcraft. I sister sized to a 34G since Wonderbra doesn't do GG. As such, the band isn't as tight as I'd prefer. I can hook it on the tightest setting, but it stays up fine on the second one. I will probably take in the band eventually. This bra has plastic hand shaped inserts in the cups that hold you up, and silicone on the band. It is designed to fit differently than regular bras so it takes a little getting used to. The band sits much lower, like a longline almost, but just imagine that's where the 'wrists' of the plastic hands are resting. The first ...time you wear it you'll probably try to yank it up like a normal bra but it really isn't necessary and will stay put just fine. There isn't a gore really, so it can't tack. Super plunge and cleavage. If you're soft/spilly, you will most likely fall out of this bra. The coral works as a nude-ish color on me. I've stopped caring if people see my bras (especially since they're so pretty) so I'm not as disappointed if it doesn't blend perfectly with my skin. I wore this bra under a strapless sundress, the kind with no inner support just elastic at the top and waist, to see how it worked out. A full day of shopping, errands, and sewing and I didn't have to adjust it once. It did get a little uncomfortable toward the end of the day, but I'm 90% sure that's because I was sitting on the couch in a weird position to knit.
Overall: If you fit into wonderbras size range, and aren't super soft: BUY THIS. I think it would be forgiving to a range of shapes. I am narrow, projected, full all over. Read more 191 more words
I wear 32HH UK and 70J in Ewa Michalak, so I was well-aware this bra would not fit perfectly when I ordered it. However, many people have been known to wear it successfully even though the size on the tag is smaller than their normal size. I have a few summer dresses that could benefit from me owning a strapless bra (instead of me always wearing a cardigan to cover bra straps), so I thought I'd give it a try.
I actually love how this bra makes my boobs look. It might be the sexiest bra I've ever worn. I tried it on with some clothes, and the shape ...from the front was actually not too bad. The shape was up-front and rounded, but unfortunately, from the side it still looked a bit odd since I had quite a bit too much boob for the actual cups.
Despite that, I would keep the bra in a heartbeat if the band were smaller. Yeah, I know it's a 34 band, but I was hoping it would be snug. Nope, unstretched this band is 29". That doesn't really offer any support since my BTT measurment is 29". The bra is basically just sitting on my ribcage waiting to slide down. This bra is only offered up to a G cup, so sizing down to a 32G or 30G would not work any better since the cups on this 34G are already too small.
I wish Wonderbra would expand the size range for this bra because it seems to be incredible. There aren't any actual wires in the bra, only large pieces of plastic to simulate where the "hands" are. Read more 172 more words
In my neverending quest for a strapless bra, I've been dabbling with various sizes in this model.
The 32G cup has enough depth for me that it is not being pushed out by my boobs creating a gap between the bra and my chest wall. The band, however, is too big, so the gap still appears I actually prefer the shape of this bra for my boobs over the Deco strapless because the latter makes my boobs point a bit east-west as if they hate each other. I will get the band taken in professionally and hopefully this bra will work under strapless dresses. If it doesn't work out, I guess I'm going commando under my BM dress next month. Either that or tape. Ouch.
I've tried this bra in 30G and found it to be too small in the cup. Since this bra only goes up to a G cup, I sized up to a 32G. The band is now way too big (27 unstretched, which is bigger than my underbust measurement).
Due to the construction of the bra, I imagine it would work well if it was tight enough. The front of the bra is supported by a stiff piece that contours around where your IFM would be and upwards towards the apex of the cup. I'm assuming this is what makes the bra so stable. I will need to take it in a few inches and hopefully I will get more support from this bra. As it is now, when I am exhaled, the bra slips down to my natural waist and sits there doing absolutely nothing for my boobs. I've had to fully inhale in some pics to get it to stay up.
This is a great strapless bra, unfortunately the 30G is too big in the cup. It's not that noticeable since the cups are so rigid, but the top of the cup cut into my armpit fat and it get uncomfortable pretty fast.
This is my first strapless and I never really belived I could wear one but I've been proven wrong. I haven't actually worn it for an occasion, only around the house but I'm very optimistic.
I tried several sizes on in the store and almost bought the 32FF which both myself and the fitter thought a good fit. Then for comparison she brought me the 30G and it felt perfect. Though I do own 30-band bras I most often fit in a 32. I think perhaps the band runs a little loose. I also tried on another Wonderbra model and had the same experience with 32 being to loose.
The bra has surprisingly good uplift using the weird "hand shaped" wires (which are not wires at all) and I feel very secure and held in, even when bending over, which I had not expected. I especially like the separated-boob-cleavage.
