The bra fit, and I do prefer non-wired, however this bra simply made me look "dumpy" and was not comfortable for me. I have very full breasts, this particular style was singularly unattractive on me. I wish elastic on the band is covered. It is more comfortable for me as I do have "unusual allergies". Sadly, despite all the raving reviews, this bra does not work for me.
With your height, my guess is that "dumpy" look was coming from straps that were too long for you. I'd imagine at a J cup, in that bra without shortening the straps, the "girls" were pointed toward the floor. There is a nifty feature to every Aviana bra - you can adjust the strap all the way into the front of the bra. Just work one side of the slider over the wide part of the strap into the position you want (for you I'd suggest as far as it will go to the front near the cup), then pull the strap through the back side of the slider and VOILA! Your strap is half the length it was. I agree about elastic….a necessary evil and hard to cover without adding bulk to the bra. Good luck!
HerRoom Response: We at HerRoom have tried adjusting the strap as described by Aviana above. It is very difficult since the straps are wider than the slider. It can be done with much work, but it is not a simple solution.
