My shape is low set, narrow and short rooted, soft and slightly pendulous.
I received this bra through MagdaBras4you , and it took about 2 months from the time I ordered it until it arrived in Canada. Ewa Michalak's shipping prices make it impossible for me to order direct, so I was glad to get this one through Magda. To assess whether or not this bra would fit (before ordering it), I tried the 65FF - Ewa Michalak » Bm Koronkowa. I haven't yet looked at how they measure compared to each other, but based on the pictures and fit, I'd say the Koronkowa ... was a better fit - better fit in my IMF around the underwire, and it also had a rounder profile. I get a more natural lift with the La Gloria, and the upper cup isn't as rounded looking as other bras I've tried - like my unlined Comexims. I'm hoping that this bra will 'round out' a bit more with wear and a wash because I'm not super bowled over with the shape I get right now; not that it's terrible or anything, just not super rounded, which I prefer (but my natural shape isn't super round either, so you know...). The lace is very accomodating to fluctuations and different breast sizes, so that's a nice feature. The underwires have to be pulled right up under my breast because if I don't hike it up, I get some space next to my IMF and a little tiny wrinkle. The band is nice and snug and has a bit of stretch but is not stretchy. I stretched it until the wires started to distort.
I think the La Gloria is absolutely stunning, with it's shimmering green-blue colour. I took a picture with some natural daylight to hopefully capture the colour a bit better. There are little black bows on the gore and straps, and the straps themselves are the same green and black as the bra (they remind me of garter belts for some reason). The straps don't have a ton of stretch to them. I'd say the straps are supportive, but JUST long enough for my tall frame. If I let them out to the fullest to where they are most comfortably loose, I get a bit of a saggier look. If I tighten them a bit, I get a rounder look... so it's a trade off for me. The inside of the bra has a black thin mesh lining that is not attached to the upper section of the cups, which is typical of the full lace BMs.
Overall excellent quality, beautiful lace, average to above average shape on me.
