I have wanted this bra for what feels like eternity, I was saving up for it but after figleaves sold out of 28FF I went and impulse bought it off large cup lingerie (free shipping, came in just 2 days, I recommend it!)
When I took it out of the packaging, my first instinct was that the cups are too big, I'm going to have to send it back! But they actually fit very well for size. The back has a 6 hook fastening, but there is only 2 tightness settings and I am on the tightest right away, so I might end up adjusting it.
Apart from the tightness, ...my only complaint is how wide the wires are, they are way too wide for me and mean that I'm popping out a bit at the front because the cup is too shallow, it's not uncomfortable and doesn't look too obvious so I'm definitely keeping it, but it's very much a bra for someone with wider, more shallow breasts.
The longline looks great, but there's no extra boning or support. It's not really necessary though as the cups are very supportive. Overall it's a gorgeous bra and I'm gad I impulse-bought it, I'm probably going to wear this under a sheer shirt, or with a high waisted skirt and a jacket, to show it off https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> Read more 121 more words
I really love this bra, but it just doesn't fit me.
It's made for a wide, shallow shape so anyone with deeper breasts might need to size up in this. The stretch lace is great for accommodating a little extra growth/shrinkage in breast size during the month, and gives way more support than it looks like it can. The bottom half of the cup is lined and the top is just stretch, meaning it's brilliant for full on top.
The worst part about this bra is the wires, they are so so wide on me, wider than most bras I've tried. The gore is a little wide too but that can easily be taken in with a few stitches.
This is the wrong size for me, but in the right size this is a good bra for full on top/balanced boobs, with average-narrow wires. It has a lot of lift and round shape, and cleavage, probably the most popular t-shirt bra in it's size range.
I bought this in 30FF and altered the band down to 28, as well as adding boning to the sides as it kept riding up.
The cups are tall, and too shallow in the bottom for me, I get orange in a glass effects. The band kept flipping up, hence adding the boning to the sides as well. But this is a good bra, the pattern is gorgeous, and the thick fully adjustable straps are very comfortable.
