For me, everything is wrong with this bra. I am a 38H now, but when I purchased the bra I was in a 40F. I had really high hopes for this bra based on the reviews and the pictures, but let me tell you, anyone who is wearing this bra must not realize how pointy their boobs look.
The images shown on this site do not reveal the nearly cone shaped cups. If the cups were a more natural, round shape, this bra might be worth a salt, actually. The construction is sturdy and the materials seem like they would be very comfortable and supportive.
Overall, I wouldn't recommend this bra to anyone unless they like that 50's sweater puppies look or if their breasts are smushy enough to squeeze them into little cone shapes. Even so, I'd use my better judgment and steer them in another direction. Probably to an Elomi or Freya.
If Va Bien ever decides to make the cups more natural I'd surely try this one again based on the positive points I mentioned above but until then, I think this is one of the worst bras I've tried on and hung up in my closet to rot or be re-sold.
VaBien Response:It's a little tough to judge a bra when one is wearing the wrong size, but in fairness yes, the cups of this balconette bra are projected. This makes it perfect for women with soft bust lines, as you accurately noted.
