Pretty and surprisingly comfortable, the fabric is soft and stretchy. This bra is sure to be a winner for a lot of ladies. For me, it isn't quite right. It fit very well and felt nice and supportive the first couple of wearings, but by the third time it seemed to have stretched out too much. I was going into the tightest hole in the band and it seemed to want to go tighter. The shaping in the cups was fine, but again by that third wearing I felt like they weren't giving me the lift I wanted. The softness and stretchiness will be appreciated by many wearers -- for me, I suppose a more rigid construction is best. I love the demi bra in the Rive Gauche collection. The two have little in common other than some style elements.
HerRoom Response: If you were wearing this bra for three days in a row without washing it, this could be a problem. Women in large cups really need to let a bra rest for at least 24 hours before wearing again. This allows the bra to return to its original shape. Also, after two wearings, a bra should be washed to help it return to shape as well.
We suggest she stay with the demi if that is what works for her or try the Chantelle Rive Gauch T-Shirt Bra 3086
, balconnet. 3281 is too much bra for her, if she wants a demi look. Washing the bra should get the shape back in 3281, but 3086 is really the bra for her in our opinion.
