I was hesitant to purchase this bra, mostly because any bra in shiny tricot just reminds me of the gigantic ugly ones my mother and grandmother used to wear. I don't really go for shiny, unless it's satin and sexy. In addition, I was cautious because it looked like a fuller cup than I prefer -- I really only like plunge bras or balconettes. However, I decided to take the chance for a few reasons: I wanted something smooth that isn't one of those awful foam tee-shirt bras. I wanted a bra that lifts and supports, not a minimizer. The description stated that this bra "enhances natural breast definition for a more beautiful profile;" it is free of cookies and padding, which I also can't stand and it had garnered some pretty positive reviews about its comfort.
I like it. It's very soft and comfy. I think the people who have problems with fit probably are not choosing the right size. Ever since I had a professional bra fitting, I never have problems ordering a bra online. This style also has enough of a plunge to satisfy my tastes. The center part is 2.5" high which is about as high as I like to go and the lace is lovely! I ordered the white, which has light blue detail in the lace, and blue fagoting stitches down the center. What I like about the lace is how substantial it is - it's over an inch wide, so it allows for something pretty to peek out if I'm wearing a low neckline. My only issue is that, even though it says the straps are non-elastic, there does seem to be some stretch to them and I find myself wanting to pull them upwards to make sure my boobs are where I want them, but maybe it just feels different to me.
Normally I like wearing lacy, sexy bras. But I knew I needed a plain white one. This one is a good addition to my lingerie drawer for a basic bra, and will join the regular rotation. I never wear the same bra two days in a row and always hand wash with detergent made for synthetic fabrics so that the bras will keep their shape. Certainly, since I usually wind up paying at least twice as much, the price is right! I will consider Curvation bras for the future, as well.
