It is very beautiful and gives me great shape but the straps are too wide set for me.
A Her Room announcement email came about Conturelle that are available in 44- 42 B &C. $100 bra but it comes in my size. I first ordered the very lovely lace Blossom. I liked the shape and fit in the 42B but the straps were too wide set for me. Then I spotted the Joy. The 44-42 C was in stock but they were too big in the cup. The 44B just arrived. It brings me up and forward and lets me naturally point. No, it is not the cone shape of the 50’s. It gives me some forward projection that I need in a clingy surplice neckline dress. The straps are in the right place for me and stay put. I like the 2 hooks (usually not available on my size. )The 2 hook style allows me to wear the band tighter without having the back so tight that it causes gauge lines. The back fabric has some stability to it. I would prefer a less stretchy strap but I’m not wearing this to exercise in.
In comparison, I have had success with the 44C Wacoal Basic Beauty and I wanted to try other styles. The Basic Beauty is basic and functional with straps that stay and I can do yoga and jump on a rebounder. It gives me the popular basic round shape that is good enough for everyday considering I am a hard to get size. I will say that in most other brands I wear a 44 B or 42 B and sometimes a B is too big in the cup in my band size.
