I need support and this bra did not offer that. Elastic straps do not help support large cup bras and it is very hard to find straps and cups that are not stretchy.
Our bras feature restricted stretch straps for ease of movement, but the fabrication in the cups is always rigid for maximum support. Many other brands have stretchy cups because it’s actually easier to “fake” a fit with cups that are forgiving, but naturally the down-side of this is an outright lack of support, and quite a “droopy” look. Because our cups are rigid, it’s possible to get that wonderful lifted and “perky” look.
It’s extremely important to be in the correct size for a true custom fit. If the size is wrong it’s impossible for the bra to do the job it’s meant to do, which is to support the breast tissue.
If you’re depending on the straps too much for support, it’s an indication that the body of the bra isn’t giving you enough support: Usually it’s because the band is too large, and the cups are too small. Please ensure that the under-wires are surrounding all of the breast tissue, and that the back end of the wire is behind the breast tissue, on bone. The piece of fabric between the cups should be up against the chest wall, and the band should be snug enough to stay parallel to the floor around your torso.
If you still feel you need a style with a bit more “guts” perhaps you’d like Karina 2452, the newest addition to our Fantasie family. Karina is a gorgeous full-coverage bra with side support panels and center pull straps. The band is slightly wider than that of this 7700 for even more anchorage and support.
