This is a very attractive bra, but the fit was uncomfortable. This is my first bra from Fauve, so maybe I am not used to their sizing.
The band size is perfect, but the cups seem to be extra wide, as the cups are a little loose below my underarms. Maybe I should have gotten a cup size smaller.
Also, the underwire on the sides of the cups were poking me right below my underarms. The underwire is not long enough to be covered by the padding at the ends, so it pokes through the thinner material. I sewed thick layers of felt over the ends of the underwire, so now I can wear the bra comfortably. I have never had a problem with the underwire like this before, even with my cheaper bras.
I really love the look of the bra, and the fact that it gives me nice shape and lift, but I am disappointed with the fit. I am not sure if I will be buying more bras from this brand.
Fauve Response: Our Fauve bras are designed for the ultimate in luxurious fit and comfort, so we’re sorry you were disappointed! If the cups are loose below your underarms, it’s likely the cups are slightly too large for you. Perhaps a 30D would fit better. The under-wires are movable within the wire-channel. To alleviate the poking, you can actually push the under-wires fully towards the back of the channel into the padded end. It might also be this particular style is not the perfect style for you. Perhaps check out some other gorgeous styles in Fauve. Some of our very favorite styles are Fauve Emmanuelle Underwire Padded Half Cup Bra FV0091 and Fauve Marla Underwire Padded Demi Cup Bra FV0291.
