While this bra is well made, it is not the best bra for larger busted women in my opinion. I've been wearing it for a month and the straps don't offer much support, the cups don't lift much at all, making me feel un-supported and heavy. The cotton cups are much to stretchy and cause you to "fall" in them. You'd think since they make this bra in larger cup sizes, it would support better, but it just doesn't. I wish I could return it, but can't since I've worn it already :( It's hard to tell if a bra is going to fit well with just trying it on, it needs to be worn and moved around in a bit to me to feel if it's going to be the right bra.
Le Mystere Response:
Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that you are not pleased with your Florence nursing bra. Part of the allure of this bra is the soft, stretchy cup which is extremely supportive for full busted women as well. However, keep in mind that when purchasing a nursing bra, you should still keep all of the normal bra fitting rules in play: nice firm band for most of the support and a strap that doesn't need to be pulled too tight because you are anchored and secured at the band. Also, as with any bra, it is extremely important to give it a chance to rest. Even if not washing after every wear, you must give the bra a day or two between each wear so that the elastic fibers have a chance to rest and recover. And of course, no dryer ever.
Perhaps you would find our Sexy Mama 163 nursing bra
will make you feel more secure. It has a contoured cup with a nice, wide band for superior lift. The lace lays flat giving a smooth look even under thin knits. We do hope that you will give us another try.
