Bra is NOT as shown. Underwires touch in the middle and, as all Huit bras, push breasts together, causing unpleasant chest wrinkling. Runs small. D=US C. Plastic label that rubs and irritates skin. If you cut it off, the residue is too irritating, so wear inside-out. The stripes are so poorly sewn that I look like I have several nipples. Overpriced. I'd pay $15 for this at K-Mart and toss it.

Huit Response: Marlowe, thanks for your comments which we will be sure to pass along to our quality control team. All brands fit differently so it’s important to be flexible about your size. European bras often run a cup size smaller than U.S. bras, so it’s not unusual to have to increase the cup size for that perfect fit. If your breasts are being pushed together, you might have to go up in the cup to a 36DD. Marlowe

The photo with this is not this bra. The underwires of this bra touch in the middle--as opposed to the inch or more of separation.

In addition, the darts in the bra end less than an inch below the upper stripes. My nipples are not level with my armpits so this bra simply doesn't fit me.

+cups are good for wide breasts like mine -Underwires: too close -- at my age, I need separation not crinkly squish. -Darts: too high -Size: runs small

Huit Response: If you’re getting a ‘crinkly squoosh’ (I love your description!) it might be that you need to go up in the cup to a 36DD. Also don’t forget it’s so important to adjust your breast tissue into the cups properly (please refer to Tomima’s 3 Steps to a Fabulous Fit ). marvymuse from USA
