I bought this NWT Natori Feathers bra from eBay seller dressbetterforless. They are selling tons of NWT Natori items, so purchase carefully!
It arrived with a fake tag - I've documented pictures of it here! It wasnt enough that the tag has two holes in it and a red plastic tag - clearly reattached to the bra, they also put the Natori logo in the wrong font. The tag describes a racerback bra instead of the Feathers and has typos.
The bra itself seems to be in new condition. I can't be sure if it is fake or not. The lace begins and ends in different places than on my ... 32DD red Feathers, but looking at other user photos this seems to vary a lot. The hardware on this bra is gold while my 32DD has silver hardware. I'm not sure if this is normal variation or something that Natori changed one season. They seem alike otherwise.
Soo.. super sketchy. The store has a few negative reviews, but over 2000 positive ones so I didn't check before buying. One user reports getting a dingy used bra with the fake tag attached.. yikes! I never really thought about fake or sketchy bra sellers - at least in this price range - it seems too niche.
We will see how this refund goes, wanted to give you all a warning to watch out for this seller
My main question is why?? I'm would likely buy this bra NWOT as many eBay sellers list them and not had any problems, but there's no way I'm letting this scummy seller keep my money

Update: This bra was well loved for a few months and worn regularly before the cups edges started to curl outward and show under shirts. Probably due to it not being a perfect fit but it may also be lower quality. Pretty bummed because it was a favorite and otherwise is holding up well!
A unique bra with virtually no gore, and I'm happy with the fit! Truly, I just noticed it on Amazon for $15 and had to try it.
Somehow Simone Perele has made me fall in love again. This bra seems well thought out. The cups are tall, but something about the shape and wire width makes ... it work - preventing them from bothering my armpits (a problem I encounter often in plunges). The wing height is also low, further preventing this problem. The cups have a nice amount of depth overall, where many plunge bras are simply too shallow and too wide.
Their website advised sizing down in the cup and I think that is fair. I would usually go with their 65F but the cups might have been too tall and deep.
I'm not sure where I am shape wise that makes this bra works. I thought I was a bit close set, but maybe I'm more in the middle. 1" gores are good, less is great. Over 1" is bad. Maybe I'm self supporting enough that my breasts don't want to escape into the middle too much? I'm sure the cut isn't for everyone but I'm loving it.
It feels comfortable and easy to wear overall. I can for sure see this becoming my go to bra. Plus, the band runs true to size unlike many Simone Perele bras!

So cute - the dotted mesh they use is unique and fun.
Overall, an impulse purchase. I don't need this bra at all. But it's beautiful and so soft and tempting to keep, clearly the quality Fortnight is known for. I would say this runs pretty similarly to their longlines in size, which makes it a bit small for me. It cuts in on top, but I found sizing up helps. It is a bit wide and tall near my armpits.

Not the most exciting looking bra on me, really. I've got to quit trying fuller cup bras, I feel like they don't do much for my shape. I guess it's about what you're looking for, but all the coverage makes me feel so matronly. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" /> (And after wearing for a day, the tall cups were really bothering me)
It's comfy, but it can't compare to the Simone Perele spacer bras I've tried - except maybe that the band feels like a truer 30. The foam is a bit thicker than I thought it would be.
Also, after the post where people were saying they prefer lined bras in the summer, I must say that I found this bra much more uncomfy and sweaty than my unlined Cleo Marcie or Lily.

I should've researched more before I bought this bra. I didnt know it was so sheer from all the pictures I had seen. It is sheer and very thin - nipples show through and are very prominent. I thought it looked like a softer cotton, not mesh. I didn't know it has this subtle striping pattern on the sheer mesh either, but I think it cheapens the look.
The thin material does nothing for support, leaving me with a natural but flattened and unattractive shape, very low. I've had unlined bralettes make me look way perkier than this
The bow looks ridiculous, tacked on as an after thought where it doesnt really fit. Clipped it off immediately.
I wish the band was a bit tighter, and the cup a bit bigger, but it's good overall.
This bralette is actually exactly what I'm looking for though - a lacy, black longline bralette that has lots of coverage to wear under scoop neck shirts. It works great for that, I'm just bitter about the shape.

First comexim first thoughts
Kind of shallow. Though i didn't do much research before, just bought a cheap one. I probably just need more cup depth too.
The wires are an odd fit for me. It does of course not want to sit in my IMF. Then the gore is very narrow up top, more than I need, but then widens out quickly which causes problems.
The cups are tall and irritating.
The seamed cups are disappointing. The cups dip in too much at the seam, between the pads. This leaves my boobs looking lumpy and sad in some shirts. I would rather wear an illfitting Deco than deal with the seams.
So yeah, a disappointing experience. Comexim and Ewa are just generally out of my price range, when most of my favorite bras have come almost new or lightly used for like $20. So I don't know if I will try much more in the future anyway.

This is the probably the biggest train wreck I've encountered in my bra journey. The gore is so wide, making the cups too far apart for me. I would say the cups run two sizes small. They are very short and small for a 30E while the wide gore makes bra cups very wide in the armpit area.
It doesn't help that I gave the elastic at the top of the cup on my black one the slightest tug and it snapped, leaving a mess of loose fabric. The bras look barely worn but the delicate mesh is showing wear and fraying. I don't expect a ton of durability from a mesh satin bra but that's ridiculous.
Bizarre fit and bad quality. My first experience with this brand is not a good one.

I can't believe I've waited so long to try this one! I'm more of a 30E but I find this 30DD to be a good fit - I think a 30DDD would be too big. I bought it used but the band is still tighter than expected. I was expecting the worst after my last B.Tempt'd Wacoal bra!
The beige color is one of the lightest beige bras I've owned - I'm not sure if that's a good thing for me, but it might help someone. It's much lighter than my Natori Feathers beige bra.
The cups are soft but thin - I've been on an unlined bra and bralette kick, so honestly it feels a little thick to me, but it will be nice to have something with more padding.

I had this bra in 30DD, same color, sold it trying to keep a minimal bra wardrobe. Then I see it for cheap and buy it again. This is simply a great, comfy option for a t-shirt bra.
My other moulded bras right now consist of a 28E Deco which mostly fits but is still pretty uncomfortable, not something I want to wear every day of the week. It gapes easily. My other is a 28E Deco soft cup, which fits terribly and gets painful after a long day.. still searching for it in a 28F.
This bra is great because it is comfy - not prone to ... gaping, smooth silhouette. Nothing like a stiff Deco. It isn't a perfect fit, but it tends to deal well with my shape, just creasing slightly at the bottom of the cup. I do believe the wires are prone to stretching wide, so if you need narrow cups it is best not to wear the band tight. My old one had a looser band but seemed narrower, while when i pull this newer one on the wires seem wide.
This bra is a must have for me - until I find something better. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />

Just a bit too much in cup quadding and quadding for me. A size up may help.
Feels like I'm on to something though - definitely felt like this bra was a wow moment despite the in cup quad. Curvy Kate Ellace and Bardot fit ok, but overall just a bit too much wrinkling.. gaping.. not laying flat.. small issues. And no wow factor in comfort, shape, or looks that made me want to keep them. The shape from this bra could be a wow factor for sure! Gonna look for a 30E or 28F depending on measurements.
Gorgeous materials. Love that it isn't mesh. Love the feeling. Love the lavender. I think there is a decent amount of immediate projection, TTS band, narrow wires.
