Featured Review: Size : 36FF
So so SO PRETTY! This is probably the most beautiful bra I have ever owned! I love the design (I wish they had the matching panty available in the lavender). It reminds me of Edwardian and 1920s silk lingerie. The cups are very soft and stretchy, but supportive. It's almost like a second skin! I ordered one band size larger than normal (I'm a 34FF/H in my go-to brand, Wacoal), but I am glad a did! The 36FF fits really well. If I had gone with my usual size, the cups probably would be too small. In fact, the cups are the textbook definition of perfect fit: no "fourboob", no gaping, all the side tissue is contained, and the center of the bra rests on my breastbone. Oddly enough, the latter part is the only place I ran into trouble and why I cannot give this bra a blazing 5 stars. This bra is really comfortable except for the center where the two underwires meet between my breasts. The two wires together are nearly an inch wide! I don't have enough room between my breasts for the underwires to rest comfortably, so the top corners of the casings dig in, leaving uncomfortable red marks. I think it's just my body, not the fault of the bra. I have wide breast roots on a small ribcage, so I usually buy bras that don't touch my sternum for this exact reason. Be aware that if you have close-set breasts that this style might not be ideal for day-long wear. But a few hours for a special occasion or romantic evening? Yes, please! Despite the underwire issue, this bra is so elegant, I still want another.
