I should've known better than to buy a bra that has 2-part cups and no side sling support. I was tempted by the grape blue color and paisley fabric. In person, it's a beautiful bra; the photos make the purple look almost black and don't do the bra justice. Unfortunately it fit me like most minimizers do, and it reinforced my hatred of minimizer bras: it flattened me in front and pushed my boobs out to the sides, which made my chest look very wide and strange. Too bad, because I'd have loved to keep this one. I'm generally a fan of Fayreform, and I should've bought the balconette version of this bra while it was still available in my size: apparently it's got more supportive structure than this version. Oh well. Lesson learned.

Fayreform Response: We are sorry to hear you were not happy with your purchase. At Fayreform, we strive for customers service and will gladly pass your comments along to our design team in hopes of improving the structure of the bra in the future. Robin from Chicago IL, USA

Very full coverage. Go down a cup size from what you would usually order. Paper-touch fabric is unusual, but still comfortable, and supportive. The horizontal seaming gives a slight minimizing effect, pushing breast tissue to the sides a little. Fine with me because bras that claim to "project" breast tissue forward many times give the pointy, cone-bra look to my particular body type, which this bra does NOT. I find that my waist looks more defined when I wear this bra. I love this bra because it is one of the few that keeps everything contained (no double-busting) yet is still sheer, lacy, and beautiful. I have been on a weight loss journey and used to wear a 38DDD, 60 pounds ago. Now in a 32G, this bra was then and still is now my absolute favorite of the many I have tried. HerRoom, I have a difficult time finding this bra. You are the only online retailer that carries this style. Please continue stocking it. Preferably in black as well as the fashion colors. :) KnowsHerBras:) from Louisville, KY, USA

I have one bra that fits very well in 30H Chantelle. I have been looking for more variety but this bra comes too high under the arm and way too much embroidery. I am just 5 ft tall and have to tighten straps all the way or shorten by sewing. I find it difficult to find bras in my size, that don't slip off the shoulder, because they are too wide, or come up too high under the arm. I range between 30-32 and find the G is too small.

The bra was way too small. Did not run true to size. I usually wear Wacoal and a 38 and in the Fayreform I would at LEAST take a 40. I had to return it.

Fayreform Response: Fayreform’s fit is based on European sizing, so the band runs small. Wacoal is based on an American fit which is more ample, so unfortunately the two brands cannot be compared in terms of fit/sizing. If you are a novice to lingerie with a European cut, I would recommend going up a band size. We appreciate your feedback. Shirley

This is a great bra, the G cup fits me perfectly, the first time in my life that a bra actually fits the way it is supposed to. I had to use the extenders to give me a little more girth, I didn't want to return the bra, because the cup size was so perfect for me. I am totally happy with the fit, and this bra is a minimizer so I don't look so big. Gayla from Dalton, WI
