I'm actually way closer to 30 than I am to 20; specifically: 27. Anyway, right off the bat, this bra was gorgeous, but it looked so tiny! Now, bear in mine that I had a breast reduction only 3 months ago so my perception is skewed as to what a bra should look like, especially since I was wearing 34-36 K-KK bras (HUGE difference). On my quest to find a bra to fit my breasts, I found the Chantelle C Chic Sexy 3-Part Plunge Underwire Bra
Style 3641 which would have been the style for my old breasts, but now was a very weird fit. In the return process, I stumbled across this lovely piece as a suggestion from HerRoom because of my previous purchase. Never having worn a demi before (they didn't make them in my previous size).
I was hesitant, but exchanged for it anyway. Best decision ever. Superb craftsmanship, delicate yet strong fabric which has softened with wear and wash and is VERY sexy yet supportive. The straps could have the teensiest bit less elasticity, but it's the band that gives the support anyway so it isn't really a concern, although if they were fully adjustable I could completely forgive them for having too much elastic. The stitching was also something I noticed: it is very well done, seems meticulous rather than hasty conveyor belt manufactured. But overall, the bra is comfortable enough for all day wear, even with light-moderate exercise (trekking around campus with a 50lb bookbag and walking 2 miles to and from school with that same bookbag).
I may just have to buy another when I can; I got the fever, it's been so long since I've worn. Now that my breasts are significantly smaller, they will be much easier to shop for, and a whole new range of styles and brands has been opened up to me--the flood gates are open, and I'm ready, Chantelle, I'm ready.
