When I ordered this bra, I was under the impression that TLBC bra's were sized smaller than other brands, but I now understand that the Angela was an exception and that this brand just carries a large range of sizes. First of, the band did fit properly, the material of the band is similar to the Angela, but a little bit stretchier. The shoulder straps were long enough not to dig into my shoulders. The padding was a bit on the heavy side for me, and the quality of padding didn't seem special nor luxurious. The cup of this bra must have been ~1 cup size larger than the Angela (when I called TLBC, they said its ~1/2 cup larger than their regular bra, but in my opinion its more than that). I did see some push up effect, but when I turn sideways the gaps were so ridiculous that I instantly knew this bra was a no no!
The Little Bra Company Response:
Hi NHA, Thanks for trying out The Little Bra Company! TLBC is designed especially for the petite figure and smaller-framed woman. However, even within that size range, there are different body types. Some breasts are closer together than others, some shoulders are more narrow than others, etc. In order to meet the needs of as many smaller-figured women as possible we added different styles with slightly different fits to the collection. Indeed, Isis has our maximum push-up padding. Due to the heavier padding, we intentionally did not mould the cup the way Angela is, because moulding the extra padding would make the cup too hard and uncomfortable. Leaving the fabric and padding unmoulded creates a more natural look and feel. The increase of cup size with push-up is relative depending on how much breast tissue you have. Therefore, it is not an exact science. We do our very best to answer our customer's questions over the phone, but without seeing your body in person, we can only give you our best estimate. We apologize if you feel you received inaccurate information. In order to have less gapping, please give our Scoop Method at try. We've posted a video showing you how here: http://youtu.be/eamdLfsEHHA. If you still feel like Isis doesn't fit you well, may we recommend you try Lucia? It has a similar deep-plunge with contoured cups like Angela. We hope this helps!
