This was a from rachaelll. She offered it in exchange for the Panache Ava I had listed, and as I’d never tried this brand before, let alone anything like it, I decided to go for it. She said that it’s a little bit too big for her, which meant it might also not fit me, and in this case, my assumption was correct.
This bra doesn’t fit me in many ways, despite being a pretty and unique bra. The cups are a little bit too big, deep, and tall, yet the padded lower section somehow feels like it is too shallow and wants to slip ... out of my imf. Looking at the side profile, it has a look of depth at the wire. And the band feels snug and firm enough. It’s very strange, to be honest. I have a very odd fit from the side...it’s rather pointy and triangular (and not in a natural way), which I can’t tell if it’s a size issue or a shape/style issue. The straps feel wide and the whole thing is up in my pits and hugely uncomfortable. Is it a size issue? Would a smaller size fit better in this area? No idea. The embroidery in the armpit area is also a bit irritating, perhaps because it’s a tall cup.
Now there are several nice things about this bra, though nothing that outweighs the negative fit aspects. Because it’s a semi soft, it’s lightweight since it’s not fully padded, and the padding feels lighter and softer than some. It’s also likely to dry faster. The sheer mesh on the upper section is nice and soft. The strip at the top is not a problem, but it’s possible that a smaller size would be. The straps feel really soft.
I’m curious to see how AGBras finds this bra as she got the same size as well, and our shapes are quite different. I’m definitely softer, less upper fullness, close set, etc. I’ll be listing it to pass on to someone who is a little larger and/or fuller on top than I am. I’m still game to try more Kinga at some point, but this is not the style for me.
