I've worn this style for a few years. However, this is the second time I've had an issue with the fit of white vs. black. Black fits fine. White is not correct. The last time it happened, I thought it was a one time mistake. Since it happened again, there must be something wrong with manufacturing. White 2452 has a different fit from black 2452. White is too loose. Very disappointing.
HerRoom Response: Thank you for your feedback. We are forwarding your comment on to Aviana.
Aviana Response: While there is some variation in fit between Black and Candlelight (the 2452 is not made in White), it should be barely noticeable and after two wash cycles, nonexistent.
Fabric soaked by dye (especially black dye) shrinks temporarily, and in relation to the fabric's fiber content. A lacy fabric absorbs less dye per square inch, while a solid fabric absorbs more. This shrinkage is temporary and we accomodate it in our sewing specifications. After the garment has been washed, usually twice, the fabric returns to it's normal size and shape. For this reason, we always recommend fitting bras in light colors, and buying the same size in black. The black bra will be tight until washed, usually twice.
This customer may have bought bras one size too large. I believe that after a few washings she will find the black bra a bit loose.
Thank you for bringing this potential problem to our attention. Thank your customer for us too! We always appreciate the opportunity to catch a potential problem early!
