Featured Review: Size : 36G
This is my first full day of wearing this bra and I'm very impressed with it. The fabric is soft, including the lining behind the embroidered "pearls." I wish the straps were the same style used on some other Fauve/Freya/Fantasie bras (like one of my new favorites, Freya's Gem bra): wider, with very soft linings. But the straps are my only complaint about this bra. Everything else is great: the band is quite supportive and seems true to size; the tops of the cups don't flatten or constrict me; the shape I get is neither cone/bullet bra nor super round; and while this bra doesn't lift my chest to the sky, it does lift me up and out and didn't let me sag today. If you're self conscious about show-through under clothes: the horizontal seams are noticeable but not the pink dots (unless you wear a white or tight shirt) -- and because the bra fits me so well, the cup tops don't dig into me or cause any bulging/indents. I've learned that while most Freya bras fit me best as an FF, I need a G in Fauve bras. If you have sensitive skin: the pink dots on the scalloped bottom edge of the band are all embroidered, and there's no lining behind them. They don't scratch or bother me, but I thought I should point it out. I've been pretty comfy in this bra all day. I'd buy a second one in a different color.
